Question about NEC PlasmaSync 42MP1 42 in. Television

1 Answer

Plasmasync 42 (2004)

My TV has been great, a few days ago it started with strange screen abnormalities, in the upper middle, there seems to be a splotch that is discoloring mostly greenish tint. Also sometimes the screen goes blank with the green light on then the power light turns red then green again. Very strange. Are these fixable, how long is the warranty good for? Is it worth fixing price wise or it easier just to get a normal LCD or plasma replacement for $1500. I paid $3200 in 04 and it seemed like a deal. Is this just the plasma burn or burn out that people warned me about when I bought it....signed...confused. My email is info@critelliandkilbride.com

The screen abnormality is not plasma burn. it sounds like u may have a shorted driver feeding the panel.
its repairable (might not b practicle)

Thin red line in middle of screen on nec 42 inch plasma monitor


I had the same problem -red, vertical bars along the right side of my Samsung 42" Plasma- and this is what fixed it: Removed unterminated cable.
I had hooked up an HD video camera to the set about two weeks ago. While I disconnected the camera I left the other end of the connector cable plugged into the T.V.. As I've since learned from friends who work in television, this is what's called an "unterminated cable" -meaning one end is unconnected. It can lead to problems with electrical interference and appears to have been the problem in this case; When I disconnected this cable from the T.V. the red bars went away.
So, check your cables. Make sure everything is properly connected and get rid of anything that might be picking up interference.

I had the same problem w/ the same TV about 6 months ago. You need a new optical engine. Hopefully you are still under warranty. Once that was replaced, the tv looks great.
