Question about Sony FWD-42PV1 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

3 Answers

Colorful Dots I'll get right to the point. After my Sony plasma is on for about an hour I start to get colorful pixel dots appearing on the screen. They go away after having the plasma powered down for about an hour or two. But they do come back. It almost appears to me like static on old t.v. sets, but the dots are colorful and only appear in small portions. Called the repairman and he scratched his head and said he will get back to me....four months later here I am. Please help, I live in a small community with limited help.

I'm willing to bet that a vid cable is either bad or incorrectly positioned on the display. If the unit is under warranty DO NOT open it and attempt a repair. Take it in for service to an authorized Sony repair facility.

There is a tuner problem or there is a power supply problem. Unless you have extensive plasma TV repair experience, or the shop you call has Plasma TV repair experience, this should ONLY be serviced by an Authorized and trained Sony service tech. You should contact Sony service and see where the closest authorized servicer is located and call them. In your instruction book is the numbers to contact Sony. Good Luck

Check the connection of the cable comming from the cable box to your tv either it is not connected proper or the wire that connects it is faulty and needs the be replaced.if that does not work let the repair man check the IF circuit, video amp and the tunner.it they could be causing the static.good luck my friend.

What does it mean by dead cells?


I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

Dots on screen


The snowy dots and dots are typically from a poor signal going into the TV.

If there are colored pixels that stay lit all the time (like a red pixel and never goes away) and for any input, that’s called a stuck pixel.

A stuck pixel may be caused by a bad Y-Sustain, Y-drives, Z-sustain, and or a bad plasma panel.

Good Luck.

Why are blue dots appearing on my Sony Flat screen tv. they seem to multiply every day.


If the dots are tiny, those are probably dead pixels. The circuitry that drives them is probably degrading over time for some reason. It's obviously defective, dead pixels happens a lot with LCD screens. I would hope it would be covered by warranty, because the only way to fix dead pixels is replacing the screen.

Sony a100 distortion dots - Im getting several


If these are single pixels on the LCD screen, they are normal. From pg. 8 of the user's guide:

"The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD monitor. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the images in any way. "

This may also be helpful.

"images may trail across the LCD monitor in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. When turning on the camera in a cold location, the LCD monitor may become temporarily dark. "
