Question about LG 42PX4DR 42 in. Plasma TV

1 Answer

Can't see picture

Tv popped, and picture left...then came back in blocks and the color is very distorted and the picture can hardly be seen. When you turn the tv on it takes a while for the poor picture to come in, and it comes in in sections, there are lines across the picture

Is the onscreen menu just as distorted and are the lines across it or behind it? The pop you heard may have been a capacitor and since the TV is still powering on, it's the probably the video controller board that is on it's way out. If the onscreen menu looks fine, you maybe having a problem with the input board only so try a DVD that uses a different input and if it's poor, I would say the TV needs to have the input/output board service. If the OSD is distorted as well then it's definitely the video controller board and service is likely required.

Good picture for 30 minutes then colors change!


Bad LCD controller, see sample here (note, I removed the cover off the board so you can see it): http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LTV-32W3HD/

Parts: http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?q=ltv-32w3hd&stock=all

Be real careful when you remove the back cover, the side switch assembly is attached to the back cover, so do not yank it too hard!

My Sony Bravia KLV-32U300A 32 in. HDTV-Ready LCD TV just lost the picture. Just see different colors. Hears static sound from the back of the unit. This was a progression. Few days ago, clicking sound...


hi..It's probably a loose cable. The first one to check is the
green connection but make sure they're all tight. RCA cables
tend to pop out part way which is enough to stop the signal.
If the green signal is lost, you get no picture. If the red or blue
are lost, you get a picture with bad coloring.

If you still have the problem check this
LOOK in the back of the TV when you have it turned on. Look in the slots near the top for a white glow coming out of it.

IF you see it, you need your signal board replaced...

IF NOT, then you need your power supply board replaced...

LG 50px10 loud noise & then color and image quality loss.


call 877-543-8325 this is an LG Executive call center and they will fix this for free. I have a 50" plasma I bought january 2006 which is out of warranty by 5 months. They faxed me and the LG repair shop a 30 day warranty for my tv to cover the repair. Just tell them you heard a pop and in my case the picture is distorted. All they need is the model number and serial number and they should take care of it. No arguing needed.
