Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I have a lg 42PX5D plasma and on watching the screen, the right hand side appears to have a shine when on peoples faces and a green/blue shine when watching the football ( grass). I wonder if this is from previously splitting the screen and maybe the settings are out, but i cannot rectify it.Do you know the best settings to have tv on. I watch mostly through sky hd, and althogh the hd channels are fine the rest are not up to standard.

This could be caused by many different factors. I would reset your picture settings to default. Then make sure there are no sources of magetism near the TV including VCRs. Check the wiring to make sure that there is no interference. Also, make sure you are sitting directly in front of the TV at about 3m to ensure the best picture quality.

    Go to the picture menu on the TV and select video preset to reset the display. If the picture looks and acts better than go back to the menu and in the PSM submenu I would pick "intelligent eye", this will automatically adjuct your picture for you. If the picture still looks good then I would pick "medium" in the colour temperature to get a good average colour balance. After that if all is still well I would pick "dynamic" in the APM menu.

    If you've followed all my recomendation then there might if fact be something wrong with your display, the polarized glass that covers the screen could be the cause. HD channels use a higher vertical and horizontal resolution so the glass could not affect them but with you switch to SD channels with their lower resolution the defects in the glass can come through. If this is the case and you still have warranty or service contract then have the TV repaired.

    Find out if you still have warranty for sure. Don't wait usually is only 1 year. You may also have an extended warranty, especially if you purchased the TV with a credit card.

The problem is the led which display that area is bad, the are sections in the display. What you could do is have a repair person to replace that sector.

I have poor color and when the screen is dark many red green yellow dots dancing all over on my LG 42 PX5D


This is a common fault on all LG sets with few people offering any solutions. I can offer a solution that could remove 95% if not 100% of the dots.
Remove the back of the set, there are about 40 screws. On the left hand side on a circuit board you will see 3 or 4 blue plastic boxes with yellow screw adjusters in them. The only 2 you are interested in are VR3 "setup" and VR2 "setdn". Mark the location with a marker pen so that you know where the factory settings were. Then turn VR3 fully clockwise. If this does not get rid completely do the same with VR2. This worked for me today, I was about to throw the TV away but I now have a 95% improved screen, sharper and more vibrant picture and saved hundreds. Hope it works.

Green Screen - LG 42PX5D


hello, seems to be panel trouble, plasma and lcd main panels are not fixable, the color green isnt a good sign or it is a symptom of the panel being bad,
i know its a bad diagnosis but this is true with this color on a panel.
if it is a worth while set and you want to restore it theres few options one is replacement trough your waranty

the another is having the screen replaced by a service center this is to costly and rarely done by them they would advise you to get another set. at a retail price a screen replacement is as much or even more than the tv itself.

finally you may search online listings for a servicable tv same model and exchange the parts .
the third option is the best if your waranty is expired.

good luck hope this helps

happy holidays.

Plasma TV technical difficulty


if you can still see the picture its most likely the control board that's going bad, you will still need a tech out to fix the issue.

Green hue on all inputs


Most likely there is a failure in the video processing. The flickering was from the failing components breaking down.

Your set can be serviced by an experienced tech who has spare boards and the facilities to service your set.

Blue-ish colour develops after an hour LG 42PX5D


There are voltages in the power supply that need to be very closely matched to the sticker that is on the back of the plasma display panel. If some of the voltages especially the VSCAN goes too high or too low then abnormalities such as discolorzation can happen. Changing the direction only affects direct view CRT's only. Plasmas are only affected by elevation and thats usually when you live 5000 feet or more above sea level. I would have a technician check the voltages once the panel has warmed up for 20 min or so and see if they are correct. Good luck.

Thick color lines on screen


Hi ,Sorry, this is not a solution. I have a question about your line. Is it transparent? (can you see through if the picture is bright)Does it remain there all the time if you change inputs? My LG 42" just had a blue transparent line appear on the right side of screen. Tried a few trouble shooting things w/ no change. About 1 hour later it went away. Did you find a solution and what was it?
