Maxent 42' Plasma sound but picture looks like red, green and whites digital specks

I had this Tv for about a year. One day when I was watching it a lone just appeared throught the screen. That didn't bother me. A while after that I turned on the televion, I get sound but there is no picture. I see red, green, and yellow or white specks all over the screen. What in the world is wrong? Will this cost be a small fortune to fix?

    My Maxent mx-42xm11 has been going great for over 3 years now. For the last year or so, I've noticed (when in a black screen, and only then) multi-colored snow specks (red/green/blue/maybe white?). Movies and such still look pretty good on it. I recently bought a Samsung 67" LED DLP, so no biggie, but still want to use this set elsewhere (In a Video editing setup for testing videos I make). The set still works, but wondering about what causes the specks. The 'solution' below mentions a 'color card' but doesn't really offer much of a solution since no further info was provided.

    Thanks in advance.
