Color Speckling in Dark Part of Picture

In the dark part of the picture only speckle spotting of various colors appear in a scatter fashion. It doesn't appear that this is happening in other parts of the picture, but maybe I'm just not seeing it. From a distance this isn't noticeable, but up close it is really quite bad. The service company said that this is an inherent problem with plasma but I can't find it on any other plasma TV's the same age as mine - just under 2 years.

The set needs to have an adjustment in the panel voltages. this must be done by a qualified tech. the panel has now gotten it's full aging and now needs to be adjusted. this adjustment does not need to be adjusted again after this has been done.

Why red speckling around the border of the picture


try adjusting the voltages on the panel display, the voltages are listed on the label on the panel itself. Adjusting them up or down within 10 to 15 volts should affect that speckling around the picture, if not then the panel will most likely d to be replaced

The dark color of my tv was change unspected the dark color now are blue, violet,and other exept black, the dark scense can't see. please help me.


I believe you either have a bad LCD Controller Board or a bad Main Board. The only way to know is to replace one. If it doesn't fix it , replace the other. Or replace both and it should be fixed.
I hope this helps,

Hi Mikshanks,

I had the same problem with my TV. It was a horizontal problem with different shades of color, and black spots. I replaced my Upper & Lower Y-buffer boards. Your Y-sus board should be okay since it still powers on the screen. You should replace the Y-buffers Upper & Lower, and it should work. I hope this helps.

best regards,
Tyler

The speckling is caused by the CTRL board. The firmware needs to be updated. Unfortunately LG does not provide a media slot for downloaded upgrades. You must order an install the factory updated CTRL board located between the power and the Y sustain boards.
