Recent problem with picture

Just recently my tv picture appears dull. The picture comes in fine but seems like the colors are off, sort of an overall greyish tint to the picture.

The first time I noticed this , I turned the TV off and later that day when I turned it on it was back to normal. However, a day later the same this has now happened again.

I hope this does not mean the plasma gas? life is over...I t has not even been 2 years yet! I

Would appreciate any suggestions or ideas.

    I have a similar problem. My 42pc3d is about 18 months old. In the last
    couple of weeks I have noticed a decrease in color brilliance, loss of
    sharpness, and overall dull display. The inputs are a Cox STB, and a
    Sony HT. Thinking maybe a power-off reset mght help, I pulled the power
    plugs on all. I returned power after a couple of minutes, but that
    seems to have no effect.



    Is there an internal color/display test that can be activated by a certain button pattern?

    Just turns off and then right back on..only happens every so often, maybe once every couple,days. Seems like it might be some sort of interference

Plasma Tv panel only have a lifetime of 10000 hours. the phosphor inside the panel and the zenon, xenon gas only will last so long . Pretty much like a florescent light bulb.

Hi I have a panasonic viera TH-42PA50A blinking red light and it just keeps blinking any ideas what it could be


it is not a good sign. If the tv screen is dark (no picture) and no sound but the standby red light is continuously blinking then it could mean the power supply board in tv is faulty.

Usually a few burnt out capacitors on the board but hard to replace yourself unless you are experienced in this sort of work. From the model it appears a reasonably recent unit and you may want to get it checked out by a repairer at least to get an estimate of the cost.
See this site to get some idea of the part costs.

Picture quality deteriorated


Most like one of the scan drive boards is failing. It would need troubleshooting to determine which board is weak.

Bravia blinking 6 times


The TV is going to protection mode due to secondary power failure in the video out section and this is a case to be handled by a qualified service technician.

No picture but has sound


The problem can be caused by a bad sustain board (Ysus Zsus) , the popping sound is often caused by a capacitor blowing up.
The TV must be taken apart and tested before eventually replacing sustain boards.

DIBOSS tv shows no picture


Me too! Apparently Diboss are no longer trading, so no help there. I am aware that these panels have a common power supply issue, the faulty chip is only available from China and the last one I fitted only lastest a couple of days. However the fault described above is not the same. I've checked the psu outputs; all are fine and nothing changes when the picture disappears, therefore I can assume that I'm not looking at a PSU fault. As Iain says above, it appears to be a signal link, however I have no picture on ANY input and without circuit diagrams I cannot find any component that's common to all the various inputs. This leads me to think that either the backlight, or the screen itself is faulty. I'll keep trying and if I get it sorted I will report back.

Sony 60" HDTV Plasma WEGA....Picture Problem


Sounds like your component cables may have come off its contact point. Check to see if your cables have become loose. Pushing them back in place should take care of that but check at the source output and the TV's input. Red Green Blue, when ever one of these 3 come out of contact the TV will produce a color hue relevant to what color remains in contact, looking faint and discolored. If you do find a loose cable connection, inspect the contact ends and squeeze lightly to restore a snug fit but don't do it to hard or you may damage the prongs.
