Problem with LGv 42PC3D - won't turn on

I purchased this TV in February of 2007 and had no problems with it until last week. When I try to turn it on it clicks like it is going to come on and then clicks off. The indicator light just goes from red to green and back over again. The TV is still under warranty but unfortunately no one can come out to look at it for another 2 weeks. Was just curious is anyone had a similair problem with this model or any idea what the problem could be. Thanks

    I am experiencing the exact same problem. The TV was working just fine, then I heard an audible POP, now when I try to turn it on, the green light comes on, then goes back to red. HELP!!!

    So they came out today to look at my TV and said that the plasma screen has malfunctioned. When I asked what caused it they said "electrical failure" and that there was nothing I could have done to prevent it. It was not cost effective to repair so since the TV is under warranty I am getting a replacement.

    I have a problem with my 42" LG plasma TV. When I try to turn it on it clicks like it is going to come on, then clicks off and continues to click on & off endlessly until I take the plug out of the socket. The indicator light just goes from red to green and back over again. I believe the TV is over 1 yr old and no longer under warranty. Has anyone had a similair problem with this model or any idea on how to fix this? Thanks

    We have the same problem too! When we go to switch on it clicks and we get a glimpse of colour on the screen and it goes off and then tries to come back on again. After 4 or 5 goes it "catches and away we go. ALSO sometimes if we change channels or go to T/Text it just switches off and wont come back on till it has "cooled" down. It is still under warranty and the tech should be here next week. I will let you know the result. Love the TV just this problem is scary. Tocanepauli.

    TV works great, however, the only way it can be turned off is by removing the plug from the electrical outlet.

I purchased this hdtv new from Best Buy in February 2008. Last week a crackling sound began to develop and now the sound has gone completely, although the picture is fine.


Insignia T.V. 50" Model; NS-PDP50, Plasma T.V.

T.V. comes on, there is sound but no picture.
T.V. is les than 18 months old. We use the T.V. when we come to our Condo in Daytona Beach for vacation, so it hasn't been used very much.

Option 1
If you or your husband have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

Option 2
http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=42PC3D-UD
This link sells repacement boards for your TV. If you know which ones the tech said are bad, you can order them and replace the board yourself.


Option 3
Pay $475.00 to get it fixed. :(

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

The solution appears to be common for all recent Emerson SmartSet(tm) radios (BTW it's not the clock fault, it's the law).

Remarkably Emerson foresaw this, so here we go.

Short version (may require three hands :-) )

DST start:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "4 F" (Fourth month, First week) alternating with something like "4. 1" (April 1st, for 2007) or "4. 6" (April 6th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 1 buttons, now press the DOWN or "-" Set button (3 times) until "3F2" shows (Third month, second week) alternating with something like "3.11) (March 11th, for 2007) or "3. 9" (March 9th, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now half done.

DST end:
Press and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons for at least 3 seconds until the display changes to something like "10 L" (Tenth month, Last week) alternating with something like "10.28" (October 28th, for 2007) or "10.26" (October 26th, for 2008). While holding down the MONTH/DATE and ALARM 2 buttons, now press the UP or "+" Set button (1 time) until "11 F" shows (Eleventh month, first week) alternating with something like "11. 4" (November 4th, for 2007) or "11. 2" (November 2nd, for 2008). Let go of all buttons and we are now done.


This should remain until either the lithium battery fails or Congress undoes its work.


BTW the Emerson addendum has a history error. The time change in the first Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October did not start in 1966, but in 1987. Before that starting in 1966 the standard was set at the last Sunday in April and the last Sunday in October. Except for 1974, when it was January 6th, 1974 (DST start) and October 27th, 1974 (DST end) and in 1975 when it was February 23rd, 1975 (DST start) and October 26th, 1975 (DST end). Before 1966, state and local governments had many different rules. Source: http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/e.html
