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.

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.

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.

from the model number you have a 42" set,,the v_set and v_scan voltages need to be set 15vdc lower..this should take care of it,,if not then the plasma panel is bad
