    My LG started with the same problem. I called a repair man and he said he could easily fix it for $698!!!!! He said it's easy to fix the power control panel, but it's a series of 4 panels and all of them need to be replaced not just one (yeah right). And they are expensive parts, but easy to replace. I can buy a new tc just like it for that price!

    Same problem as everybody else. It's a shame it's not an easy fix when I paid 1400.00 for the junker.

This could be bad capacitors on the power supply board. My LG 42LB1DR has a known problem with this and I replaced the four bac capacitors myself and saved 5-6 hundered dollars that I was also told that it would cost to fix. I fixed for under 10 dollars and about 20 minutes. LG knows about it but they dont really want to admit it. My TV was only 26 months old when this happened. The four capacitors are made by Samxon and are 2200uf @ 10v. They are junk so even if you have the entire board replaced for say $200 its just going to happen again. They need to be replaced with a different brand.
