Samsung plasma PS42D5S

Hi, I have a problem with the plasma tv showing a more or less concentrated area of red scattered pixel on the right side of the screen. These pixels only show up on certain scenes. It looks like they only appear when the picture content contains a lot of dark parts. Sometimes the pixels are green. Any solution for this? If I run the Screen Burn protection signal pattern I also notice a red band at the right side when the moving pattern has progressed to the left side of the screen.

    I have philips plasma 50PF7220A. I notice red speckling mostly in the center of the screen and recently on the bottom left. The red specks are not constant, they appear and disappear with scene changes and or color changes. It seems more prevalent on some channels than on others.

You need to adjust the panel voltages, adjust the VS voltage to around 186 volts, if that doesn't change it then adjust the V-Scan voltage down, turn the unit on and apply a video source to it, and while adjusting the voltages look at the screen and you should be abe to watch the video noise fade out.

I had this problem with my samsung. The samsung repair man said it was a voltage problem. He adjusted it but it still was there. Thank goodness it was still under warranty. SO... i guess i'm getting a new panel or a brand new TV from samsung.

I have red dots or pixels if u will spreading all over my 50 plasma its really bad on pure black screen but it does show up when it goes to color too they come and go is it a graphics card problem and is...

It depends on the size,location and how many dead pixels. If remember less that 5 they won't do nothing about them. Call the warranty people and find out. they will for the location, size of pixel and quantities. Good luck to you.

Why do I see bluish light on right side of my philips plasma 42 i

Inside your television are 3 different sets of pixels (red,green,blue) If a pixel goes out or actually stays on there is no way that that can be repaired/replaced. Pixels are considered to be part of the panel of the tv and it is more cost efficient to replace rather than repair. Call your manufacturer immediately. See if you are still in warranty and perhaps they can replace your unit.

Samsung HD tv help

Is it a Plasma Television? I recently had a customer have the same issue with a 2 year old model Samsung 50" plasma TV. In his case one Of the computer panels failed. He didn't have a service plan and the warrenty was out, so i directed him to Samsungs help line. They inturn directed him to a authorized repair center. Repairs were roughly $800. Thats a possibility but it may not be the same as your issue. Try leaving your TV running for a little while when it has the issue, and see if it eventually goes away. Some older plasma models have started to require a warm up time for the pixel cells. This has been a down fall of plasma that for the most part no longer exists on newer models.
I hope eveything works out.

Have a great day

Blue snowy pixel areas on my plasma

some of these panels were mis-calibrated from the factory after not aging long enough. Let the TV run for atleast 2 hours and adjust the Vs and Vscan voltages. When it is blue in the left I have found generally the Vs is about 10 volts too high.
