    The picture of my Teac PLH4220SD is still going (at the moment) but suffers from snow type interferrence. It can at any point just suddenly stop and be perfectly clear and then an hour or 5 minutes later (there seems to be no pattern) it can come back again.



    Our other TV's in the same house do not suffer and our TV reception is by cable to our home not via an antenna on our roof.

Hi I have the same problem and fixed it by running a fan behind the TV I think the Plasma screen runs to hot.
The fan completely fixed the screen if you feel the top of the TV you can see how hot it gets running a fan behind the set keeps it cool.

Need to clean color weel


Hello
To clean the colourwheel do the following.

Soak cotton swab in denatured alcohol

Using a circular motion, swab gently one color area at a time

Use dry swab to remove film build up.

Repeat to ensure the wheel is thoroughly cleaned

DLP color wheels need to be cleaned approximately every six months to a year, if the environment they are placed in is smokey, greasy or dusty. Sometimes, restaurant owners or places with high customer traffic will find that their TVs are experiencing picture degradation due to the smoke-filled rooms or greasy fumes from kitchens. There is no need to replace the color wheel but just to do a quick cleaning to save money on replacement parts. Even if you have your TV at home, your DLP color wheel may require a cleaning occasionally to provide clean picture quality.

Yellow and blue on screen


I am slightly confused about the model of the television, because a 46F500 is a rear projection set that doesn't have a lamp. It has 3 picture tubes and I have a few of them in my shop right now that have the problem you reported. What we do to this set when it develops a convergence issue is to check each resistor around the convergence chips for discoloration, and replace any of them that have changed in value, along with the STK392-150 ic's. If you don't have an ohm meter and solder/desolder equiptment, you can usually get a shop to do this repair for 150.00 to 350.00. Parts will be 50.00 and labor , the rest, depending on the quality of repair shop that you use. Good luck, Russmann.

I jus posted a response to this question. It should take care of your problem. However if you ordered the ICs from the link I posted they will go the distance to help you find out whats wrong if the ICs dont fix the problem.

Black/Green Distortion - Picture Quality - Wharfedale


This is no solution but a point in a probable direction.

A tech guy told me ALL the LCDs they have seen in their repair shop have "swollen" capacitors, this is due to voltage instability. Lowering the internal voltage regulator and replacing the swollen capacitors (which eliminate noise) apparently restores the LCD to new working quality. Without actually "seeing" my problem the tech said that should repair it. I have not tried this yet but eventually will begin that way.

Sony KP-53V85


My unit is 9 years old, almost 10 (in 2 months) and started the same a couple of months ago. The only way to fix it is to have them serviced by a tech and replace the projectors. Its just the age/use of the unit catching up with it.

Many resellers sold them with an offer to sell you an optional maintence service where they would fix/clean/replace the projectors for upto 5 years after purchase. I'm not sure if they even have the parts anymore since these tv's are no longer produced. After market repairs are likely to cost as much as or nearly as much as buying a new flat screen tv.

53HX71 Replaced STK392-110 about 7 months ago worked well..now convergence failed again


Thermal compound should be used SPARINGLY for maximum effect. There should be enough to create a thin film over the entire mating surface. Too much compound reduces the heat transfer from component to heat sink. I buy parts from www.mainelectronics.com They are reputable and I can drop by on my way to work :-)
