LG 42pc3r, Starting problems.

When I try to start my tv it clicks two times then nothing then it clicks again. then it tries again without my interference. to stop the tv from trying again I have to unplug it. This problem doesn´t occur everytime and when it starts everything works just fine.

    I have the LG/DVR combo and it is just 2 years old and clicks, has a delayed picture which then blacks out and the TV is just black. I called LG and they gave me a repair number. I called and they said $80 to look at it, if I pull it off the wall and take it to them. Darn!

First thing to try is a power drain:


1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board. 3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on.
If this doesn't solve the issue, it sounds like your TV's connection between the power supply and the mainboard is defective. If the power supply was shot, you would hear nothing at all. I hope the above step helps.

This isn't an easy fix, it sounds like your power supply board is bad or there is a main board problem. I'd suspect a faulty power supply capacitor or heatsink missing, but you have to bring it in to a tech to know for sure.

Hi,

Your power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics' and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your TV power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.
Hoping this work out in solving the problem.....

As you have already tried reset, you can try connecting the TV to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, the TV may require service.

LG 42LD550 LCD - Internet connection problem


After the network is connected to the TV, you have to go into the TV’s network menu to complete the setup process.
If you look in your owner’s manual starting on page #55-#57, you can read the direction to walk you through the wired network setup process.
It should be very easy to setup as long as your router has the DHCP turned on. That allows the TV to automatically assign it an IP address on your network.
If the DHCP is not turned on in your router, then the TV’s IP will have to manually entered by you.

I have the same problem. It happened once before about 4 years ago just after I bought it. I put a DVD in without the power on. I was able to take it out and it worked fine. This time my daughter put the DVD in, I took it out but still no picture or sound.

Have you had any luck?

It is not you tv its the plug on theb wall. It is probably loose, and causing the intermittent problem you are having. You may notice looseness as you plug it into the wall. Your TV is fine.

I loose my picture but i still get sound


Just try to reset so picture will come again, some LCD TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the LCD TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the LCD TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the LCD TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the LCD TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the LCD TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the LCD TV.

Hope it may help you;

Regards;
