Plasma TV Picture Periodically Blurry/Color is Distorted

I have a TH-42 model which is about 4 years old. Moderate-to-Lw use. The picture periodically turns blurry and seems to turn predominately red and blue. With no adjustment on my part, it reverts back to normal in a minute or two. Is something "wearing out" or might this be a cable issue?

This sound more like a cable issue. Also check the leads going from your cable box to the set/ If you are using component cables one of them may be loose.

My ten year old sony plasma tv has vertical herring bone lines no picture just color lines. Is my picture tube gone.


If its 10 years old boards and or parts will likely not be available--average life on Plasma and LCD sets is 3-5 years.

I would retire it--recycle it and buy a new set.

What looks like a water mark on the inside of a 42 " panasonic tv about 6 year old could you describe what it is


Hi, Unfortunately with plasma screens, any still picture that is viewed for a lengthy period gets "burned" onto the screen. For example, scoreboards for sports games. Or another prime example would be a video game such as modern warfare where the map ring and the weapons list stay stationary during gameplay.

I had the same problem. It turned out that one of the cooling fans get dusty and does not work. I opened the back of the Toshiba plasma TV and cleaned the failed fan, and it worked like a champ.

Try to reset the TV to factory defaults and see if that helps. Record your color settings and any other setting your have in your config before dong this because all will be lost.
