PLASMA TV - Flashing of Green and Blue

  Chimhog 10:06 02 Oct 2007

Hi guys,

I have a 42" Samsung Plasma Tele and I just wanted some advice.

When the TV comes on you can see this flashing of green across the screen. This seems to happen each time the picture changes colour and when you change channel it is extremely obvious.

There are also specks of blue that flash on black/dark colours.

This happens on all inputs (DVD, Analogue, Digital, XBOX).

I have an extended warrenty for 4years but I dont want to call out yet before finding out this is a definate problem. I may get charged an uneccessary call out fee.

Hope this makes sense and any advice would be appreciated.

I'd definitely get someone to check it out, if only for peace of mind. How old is the set?

Regardless, u have ext warranty so common sense would tell me that I needed to at least speak to the source provider, and if still unsure, get them out to check out fee or not.

I have plasma 42 (Pioneer) and don't get any colour flashing such as you report so wouldn't say what ur seeing is normal.

Self help though, is to maybe check scart and other connections before u contact them.

The set is around 12 months old. Think I will get them out especially with all the money you pay for this type of equipment.

Seeing as you dont get this gren and blue specks it would seem abnormal.

Thankyou for replying so quickly.
