Gateway 42in plasma p420142v5

I have 2 of these plasma's. When I turn on one of them, the picture is very grainy and looks green. You cannot see the screen, but the sound is fine. The other plasma is fine, but after an hour with it on, a black box appears in the middle of the screen with a few letters and symbols! I dont want to replace 2 tv's! Help!

    The picture went out while we were watching it. Everything is connected perfect. My problem is finding someone who repairs gateways! What about my issue with the black box?

Try to check the connection of your coax/antenna at the back of your plasma tv. if it presist some of the components inside were damage maybe burnt for excessive use. Try to contact a certified repair man for that issue.

Try check its settings, maybe its not configured properly..if you have remote control on it, locate the menu button then go to picture settings or video settings then adjust the contrast, brightness, and the color of course to your desired level..

There may be some problem with your picture tube else try this that looks like retrace lines. Anyway, you should try to adjust screen pot not focus pot. Make sure you are turning blue screen pot (there are 3 focus pots and 3 screen pots) and do it slowly. If you turn it too much, it will affect your grayscale

It's called Cyan and it's sound like you are having a problem on your D-board. Look for capacitors bulging out and replace first if not then order D-board
