Question about LG Televison & Video
I have a LG 42PC7RV 42" that keeps turning off when i power it on immediately . Sometimes it will stay on for a long time and other times it will turn off as soon as i power it on.(ONLY IF I UNPLUG IT FOR COUPLE OF HOURS) It is only 2 years old. Also, when it it does turn on the picture is normal and everything else seems normal but I noticed sometimes the pictures color change ( IM NOT 100% SURE) . Please let me know what you think. Thank you in advance.
The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

SOURCE: ESA 42 Plasma picture problem
The power supply is having difficulty. The typical cause is
underated electrolytic capacitors. I would examine all the caps
(round cylindrical cans) in the power supply and see if any of them are
bulged. Not a bad idea to just replace all of them with better
These type of caps have all kinds of specs. Not just voltage and capacity, but also temperature, case size, and obtuse stuff like dissipation factor. Most all power supplies use switching type designs that run at serious frequencies (not the old 60 hz - more like 50khz) that stress out these electrolytic caps and many circuit designers (or their cheap bosses) don't specify the better parts. Replace them with the same capacitance, but higher voltage, and higher temp parts (hopefully they will not be too big physically).
Ya, I know you paid $$$ for this TV and they scrimped on cheap parts. Yup, the more expensive a product is, the more pressure the bean counters put on keeping the price down.
Hope Ya Fix It.

It sounds like the entire screen goes blank with your problem. My problem is the lower half of the screen goes blank. Do you think the SSB is also the problem? What are your thoughts about the "Video Board" or the X Board?
Do you know where to purchase parts?

Testimonial: "Solid answer. Thanks chu."
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.
hope this helps...
