I realize that this is a old post, but for the sake of anyone else with this issue; I'm visiting my mother and found that she has the same issue. After some investigation, I've been told that this is an issue with something called the "Control PC".

The service tech told me that if it was colored dots, the issue is the "Y Sustain", but white dots are due to the Control PC.

Rough estimate for repair would be in the range of $300 - $400, for a repairman to come out and fix it.

I have LG 42PJ350, white screen with "power only v3.05.0" I bought this TV second handed so I do not have a remote for it, what should I do?


Fault with main board. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too will be necessary.

Can you tell me what a Panasonic Viera Model TH-42PD25 would be worth today? I'm thinking of buying one second hand and aren't sure what I should pay. Thanks!


Hi.

Second hand price is difficult to say, probably about $500. If the unit is in good shape it does not go down too much.
New RRP is over $1000, offers however start at about US$600 (about £400 in UK). Probably you can find a little cheper in Ebay.

Here a link: Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ80U

I suggest not buying a second hand plasma. Plasma TVs have a couple of weakness points, and often break down after few years usage. If you buy a second hand you do not have any info on its usage, and you may find yourself in need of changing a sustain board within the year.

My lg plasma tv get this smaal red dots over the whole screensome times this red dots are gone and then it returnswhat is the problem it is 2 and a half years old


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.

Plasma tv has little red dots in the black


This problem (known as sparkles) can be cured by adjusting the ramp control on the Y-Sustain board. If this does not cure the dots then there is a software remedy for the control board which an LG repair centre could fix. Failing that a replacement board is required. The orbitor & whitewash are like screen savers to help to prevent a screen burn from a permanently displayed image.
