LG Plasma Model 42PX4MVH-TA

I understand the resolution on this plasma screen is 852x480. I live in South Africa and we are now moving over to HD television. I am wanting to purchase a HD decoder for TV viewing but before I do, I need to know if I will see a difference in the quality of the picture if I purchase and connect theHD decoder.

Thanks for your input
Andre

    Thanks

SOURCE: LG 42PX4MVH Broken Plasma Screen

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new plasma. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

I think you have a fault on the line output stage either dry solder joints or a fault with components on the line output stage or a faulty line output transformer. If you can check this for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: LG 42PX4MVH PLASMA TV - Sound but no picture.

I have the same issue with my LG 42PC3DVA and I narrowed it down to the Y SUS board. After a little research there are a few items that are prone to go. The ceramic fuses (as you found), sometimes the capacitors on the Y SUS, Z SUS, and power supply go along with them You can tell because thy will be bulged at the top instead of flat. I replaced a few of my capacitors - they are only $0.89 each so it was MUCH cheaper than a board.

The other thing that is common on the Y SUS in particular are the FETs (also called MOSFET). They can be replaced if you are good with a soldering gun but they are static sensitive so be grounded. They are also a bit tricky to test so you may want to do some research on how to determine if this is the issue... or you can just replace the whole board.

You burnt out the backlit lamp. unfortunately there is no easy fix for this. If still underwarranty great, if not... it will cost more to fix it then buy a new tv probably.

HD channels look terrible


You may not have the resolution set to hd even though you are on the channel. Confirm that you are using hd cable and your set is displaying 720p or greater. This will sometimes pop up on the screen when you tune to a hd channel. it sounds like you are on 480 i or p. good luck

42'' ilo plasma TV PDP4210EA1 as monitor


The resolution of that plasma is extremely low, you will gonna have problems viewing even the simplest site an most programs wiil display badly - they need at least 800x600. 
But for movies it will work just fine. Use an S-video cable from the video card to the tv and it should be automatically recognized. Configure it like any other tv, just make sure you select its native resolution - 852x480 - for best quality image.

Sound working no picture


It definitely has a problem, possibly the Y sustain board and y drivers Up/Lwr. Best suggestion is to take it in for service or have someone come out how has experience with Plasma repair.

Hi ..I was wondering if Playstation 3 and the blue ray features would work with my Maxent MX-42VM10 Plasma Screen TV? Thank you ...kev


Yes and no.  Yes you can connect the PS3 to the plasma using the component video inputs, games and videos will play fine.  However the native resolution of the TV is only 480P (852X480 pixels) which is much lower than the 1080P that the PS3 is capable of.  If you want a tv that can get the best possible image from the PS3 you would need a TV with full 1080P resolution and HDMI ports for digital input. Hope this helps!
