How to Repair a Broken Plasma TV

A repair technician may charge hundreds of dollars to repair a plasma TV, but you can save time and money by repairing it yourself. You can fix internal plasma TV problems such as dead pixels, screen burn and other distortions.

Some problems on a plasma TV can be fixed at home.

Step

Connect your external DVD player to your plasma television and turn on the power. Use an external DVD player for this process, even if you have an internal DVD player on your plasma television.

Step

Access the television’s main menu, navigate to "Display Options" and change your settings to the highest resolution available for your set.

Step

Put a Pixel Corrector DVD into the external DVD player. Access the main menu and choose the repair functions that you need, or let the wizard run all of the tests.

Step

Let the repair wizard run the DVD and evaluate the improvement. Watch the washes, pixel corrector and other tests as it repairs your plasma screen, and rerun the repair wizard for problem areas that do not self-correct.

Step

Use your Pixel Corrector DVD on a regular basis. Use the DVD on other flat screen television sets to keep the plasma screens in good condition and protected from damage.
