Loss of the color Red....Possibley others on my plasma

We turned on our Sony PFM-42V1 Plasma tv only to find everything is blue and green. Input screens used to be black but are now gray. TV has 4,000 hours mounted above fireplace so it out of reach to my little one. Any ideas?

    The TV worked again yesterday but now is doing the same thing today. I do see now that we do have other colors such as purple and orange. So maybe the red is not out??? All fleshtones are gone they are blue. Everyone looks like they are from the blueman group LOL. Anyways the Fireplace is not used often and we do monitor the temperature and have noticed NO increase at all when the fireplace is on. Contacted Sony, they have no idea and have never heard of this happening....hmmmm. Anyhow, is there anyway to test at home for an open reistor or defective IC? Thanks for all your help

If you are lucky, it could be an open resistor or defective IC. Otherwise, I see a new TV in your future as the Plasma display would cost nearly $5500 for the part alone. If the fireplace is used much, I would not mount a TV above it, especially a plasma set which generates a lot of heat all by itself. If the fireplace is only used occasionally and you want to put the replacement set in the same spot, then I would consider a LCD model instead.

Sony Tv PFM-42 V1 doesn't show any picture or tv menu

This is a common problem with plasma tvs You did not mention whether you could generate any sound like through your dvd player or something like that. Whether you have audio or not makes a difference on which board may be causing you the problem. Just because it does not have a picture for tv viewing does not mean it won't produce some type of sound through your av1 input. Try it and I'll try to be more specific.

PFM-42V1 has no ability to receive channels through aerial / cable.
You can hook direct video cables from dvd player, vcr, PC etc.

Sony PFM-42V1 42 in

sounds like X buffer/scan or control/logic problems. without good service info you will have a hard time troubleshooting. And it will get expensive guessing. Could even be a panel, probably gonna need a pro look.
