This sounds like an issue that would be covered under the manufacturer warranty. Before looking for a replacement board, please get a hold of the manufacturer for service. Thsi particular model has a 2 year, parts and labor, limited warranty. This might save you some money. Here is the website for LG service:
When you call, you should have your serial number and model number ready.
Hope this was helpful
Have a great day!

I have a lg 50PG20 plasma tv when i turn it on i get sound but no picture...can anyone help me out?

There are so many causes for this fault. Can't point out exact fault point by this brief detail you've given here. Almost all Plasma TVs wors on same principles. Just visit this site, and check whether it can help you. In most cases, Y-Sustain and its buffer boards are found faulty.
Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link. View it in "Timeslide" option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left corner of the display window. It will make search easy. There are more than 1000 posts to different brand TVs now. Pull up older posts there.

LG 50PG20 Plasma,, nothing shows on screen its all black

This model was known for issues with the Y-sustain, Y-drives, and the Z-sustain boards. These boards help process the picture image to the screen.

When one or more of these boards fail, the screen stays black, and you only have audio & on/off.

You could call LG and try to get your TV repaired at a discount if you can convince LG to honor this known issue.

Another issue could be the actual panel has gone bad. The plasma panel in your TV has a two warranty and LG would fix that for free. Well…it would be free as long as it’s not past two years of your date of purchase.

My lg-50PG20 powers up and has sound but no display. is it the control board or main board?

Study the screen at several different angles; you should be able to see some ghostly images if the video chain is OK. If you can see this, either the backlight supply or fluorescent light source has failed.
