    It seems like my TV set is "pixilating" which means the display is almost mosaic or cartoony looking. What causes this and is it repairable and if so is it real expensive?

    My TV model number is AP-42SM10

    When I told Customer Support they said it should have a P in there for plasma but I'm very certain it is a plasma HDTV.

    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated

Sometimes just adjusting the VSCAN voltage inthe set will cure it. Other times it will be a faulty panel. Either case requires a technician to do the repairs.

Is this a fixable problem?


You didn't tell us if the TV is a plasma or LCD. Assuming it's an LCD, the T-con board controls the picture. Replacement parts can be purchased here: TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy You can replace this board yourself with minimal tools.

I have red dots/sparkle in black or dark areas of the picture (this affects all devices, which are connected to the tv through a single HDMI input from my home theater system)


most likely the HDMI cable going from your home theater system is bad and or has oxygen inside the cabling. if replacing the cable dose not fix the problem the HDMI ports could be dirty and or damaged

Samsung plasma tv 42inch PS42E THDX Blue sparkles on dark areas


Hi yes i had the same problem and its basically because the tv needs a software upgrade. I contacted argos and they sent an engineer to sort it and he plugged something into the back of the tv to upgrade it. all in all it took 5 mins to do and not had a problem since.
