Question about Hitachi 42EDT41 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

2 Answers

Green dots I have the same problem as other posters. I have green dots dancing throughout my picture til the tv warms up. Many then disappear but still some remain all of the time. I had a tech come to my house and I gave him the info from this site. He reset the voltage on the board as suggested and now it is worse. This tv is only 3 yrs old. It appears that many people are having the same problem. Any ideas?

    I have received a solution that I do not beleive will help. I have green dots dancing through my picture when the images move. After the unit has been on for a while it is somewhat less however still noticable. The tech that came to my house reset the voltage on the circuit boards and now it is no better if not worse. Any suggestions?

    I did have the voltages checked and the tv has been moved.

From Shuttle83 - There are many factors that can cause this to occur, First check your A/V cables, then check to see if moving the TV to another location in the room helps. Then the final thing is to have the TV checked to see if your screen bias voltages need to be readjusted (this happens sometimes), this the VScan value / voltage can be adjusted.

if the tv is still under warranty please use the service because getting it repaired if the work around did not work may cost you.

A cold solder or bad electrolytic capacitor may cause some isue like this. but better leave as is for now.

    Take care of:

    Keep the ventilation openings clear.

    Do not put TV near appliances that create magnetic fields.

    If your TV is suddenly moved from a cold to a warm place, unplug the power cord for at least two hours, so moisture that may have formed inside the unit can dry completely.

I have a 2005, 42" toshiba LCD model 42DPC85 that when we turn it on everything is good except the whole screen is black but imediatly the colors dot by dot start making the black disappear, it only took...


You need a new DLP chip. The chip has little mirrors that are black on one side and white on the other side. When the chip wears out , your screen will turn white one dot at a time or black one dot at a time or they may just all stick shut at once. Since your screen is black, all your mirrors are closed. You can buy the chip from shopjimmy.com and they have a video of how to replace the chip so you can do it yourself. It takes about 1 1/2 hours. The chip is about $160. To have this service done for you is about $200. Do it yourself and save the money. Your tv will be just like new again. Just make sure the chip is in perfectly level or when you turn your tv back on, your picture will be slanted. you won't notice it on the picture itself but words on the screen or scrolling messages and the menu will be slanted.

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.

Take it back!!!

This is a bad sign of more issues trust me after 15 years in the biz. If you got a chance take it back and stay away from that line

I have green dots all through the picture


green dots throughout the picture means the LCD is bad so unless your Vizio TV is under warranty then you would have to get a new TV cause the cost of the screen would be more then you paid for the TV.

I have the same green dots that are seen especially when the bacground picture is dark or black. Mine does not seem to be changing when it warms up, and I also get it on my digital cable as well as on any DVD's I play. Please help with any advise. I think it was always there, but I assumed that a dgital cable upgrade would fix it - I should have known better...

Thanks a bunch in advance...

I had the same problem before. I had my wireless router really close to the tv. I relocated the router, and the problem never came back.

I've seen some of these where some of the cable connectors inside of the set need to be reseated . They have become loose . Or you may have a problem in the video circuit of the set . Good luck

Red Spots on 42" LG plasma t.v.


The dancing spots can be sorted by you taking the back panel off and adjusting the va and vs adjusting nobs , you will need a multimeter so you you can adjust the voltage to the right settings that are on a sticker on the back of the panel. You must remember to connect the black pointer to the earthed wire to get and the red to the live wire that has va or vs at the end of it. The right voltage measurements will be be found on a sticker at the back of the panel.
I advise you not to touch the setup and setdn nobs as these are factory settings and should not be touched.
If the va and vs do not sought the problem then try the vy and vsc adjusting nobs but only touch those if the va and vs does not fix your problem first.
Once you have done everything right your tv should be better then before with clearer pictures.
I hope this helps and be careful not to get zapped.
