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.

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.

TV won't power on


I am from Australia and this TV is a dud. We purchased it 12 months ago and it has been to repair twice. It is doing the same as the above message. Prior to this the screen would half, horizontally, go black or white with coloured vertical lines. Never buy another of these.
