Philips Plasma 42" - constant purple haze

We purchased our Philips Plasma 42" HDTV almost a year ago. After about half an hour after the TV is turned on, a purple haze begins to appear and increases in size as the TV gets warmer. The only possbile explanation I have found on the web has been a broken Optical Block. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

All philips plasma sets have issues with overheating heatsinks.
any heatsink that burns you upon contact is a recipe for disaster.

using cooling fans on these overheating parts will generally provide
great reliability in the long rung.

Screen lower half goes black/blank


The lower "Y Buffer" board is defective. Best repaired by a technician, or contact Phillips support for the part if you think you are able to replace a small circuit board on your own.

Samsung Plasma 42" TV - 2006


Hi, this is quite a common problem for plasma screens and LCD screens. The fluroscent backlight is more than likely faulty and would need replacing. The best thing to do is to take it to a service centre because there are no user servicable parts inside the plasma.

I had the same problem, I had to send it back to Philips to get a $900 part replaced. Thankfully I had the warranty with it.

You have a Ysus problem. Sounds like a cold solder joint or loss connections on ysus main board.
