Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Green dots on plasma.

The repair centre has just contacted me, informing me that they are not able to find any green spots on my plasma.
They will just return it to me.

Can it really go away by itself, or will it turn up again in a while?

Is there anything I can do to avoid the problem turning up again?

Thank yoy for any input :o)

    The plasma has just returned...... not as many green sparkles as before, but they are still there.

    The repairshop (LG partner) was not able to see them but made some ajustments anyway.

    Now I've mailed them a photo of the remaining sparkles.

    So it will probably go back again next week :o/

In my experience the diffusion issue can be intermittent and also only be visible on some scenes or even different inputs. If the service center did not see them and did not perform the alignment as put forth by LG then most likely the problem still exists and you will see the dots again.

I have a tx-p42x50b when I turned it on nothing no green or red just dead

In fact the TV is Dead. It will be best to contact any service technician in this case, as work with Plasmas are very skilled one. Products powered by electricity should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians. Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in serious injury or death. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact the nearest service centre.

My panasonic plasma has spots of bright colors where they shouldn't be.

If its four years old that is about the average lifespan of one of these sets; a guess would be either voltages drifting or off in power supply or one of the signal boards that processes information is going bad.

There is a little pink dot on the tv, i think its a pixel that is not working. Is there anyway to fix that?

If this is a projection TV set, it is possible that there is some dirt in the lens system. If the dot is pink, it is most likely the dirt is in the path of the green. In projection tube sets, it is also possible to have a burn spot on the phosphor of a tube.

If your set is a direct view set such as a liquid crystal, or a plasma, or a flat panel, this can also mean a dead pixel on the green. Dead pixels cannot be revived.

Depending on the particular nature of the fault, you will need an experienced TV service tech to service your set.

LG 42in plasma - Green dots on HDMI channel

The diffusion is slightly out of adjusment. This timing adjustment is difficult and on a single scan LG plasma the proper operation requires voltage settings first, then a scope to finalize the adjustment. I have good luck with this alignment by eye but have had alot of practice. This will require taking the back off and a person with the technical background to set this alignment properly. Sorry no easy fix.

Green and Blue spots on screen

Sounds like stuck pixels, you really can't fix that. Do some google research if you are curious what a stuck pixel is.
