LG TV not turning on

I have a 1 year old 32inch LG Plasma that for the past few months keeps shutting off itself but then will power back on. We started to figure out it was happening when the window was open, could be from the humidity in the room? Yesterday it shut off by itself perminantly and will not turn back off. The warranty just expired a month ago. Is it possible or even worth taking to get fixed?

My 32" Plasma originally my daughter's so five yrs old, is not turning on. The reason is the pay as you go electric meter, which can run out without warning if I am not careful. I was away and it run out as I miscalculated, monitor will not come on!! Last two times this has happened a new fuse did the job and the second time it was just a matter of waiting a couple of days. Please help as I love the tv and my little tv is great but once you have had a LG large screen. Well you know what I mean.. Someone else said this before you said to open and check the fuse, but I think you meant in the tv? Kind regards Molly

Yes you can get this fixed and it is still worth it. It may cost $200 but it should last a long time.

I've also had a popping noise on our 50" LG plasma TV, however the picture has not gone, but has turned grainy and colors are weird. Can this also be a blown fuse or a more severe problem (ysus board or similar)?

My 42 inch LG plasma turns on and off repeatedly when I try to turn it on. happened a few times before when tv was working fine, now it wont turn on at all. I have to unplug tv to get it to stop turning on...


Theres a short between the start-up processor signal on the interface board and power supply. It keeps sending the same start-byte over and over again to the power board. This could also be a DC high voltage shutdown on the power board its self. Now the tv is in protection mode to prevent further damage. Get it serviced at your local repair center. If its under warranty take it back.

Having problems turning on 2 year old Phillips


Philips TVs tend to have issues with bad capacitors in their power supplies. Failing capacitors tend to have slightly different ESR (equivalent series resistance) values when they have been left off, versus after they are warmed up and charged up. Either a new power supply board or replacement of the faulty capacitors will fix the problem.

LG Plasma 2 years old just started turning off and on


You will need to replace the mainboard, you only need to be sure your cable box is connected to the TV using ONLY one cable because if you use HDMI and another cable (ie. HDMI and COMPONENT) could show that sympton.

First try unpluggin everything from the TV and try to turn it on, if you continue with the trouble then you can be sure you need to replace the mainboard.

Power will not stay on


With a problem like this, I would use the warranty for the TV.
It's possible a circuit board failure has occurred and the TV is automatically turning itself off to protect it from further damage. Is normally called " Protection Mode " for most TVs.

Being that it's 2 months old, it should be under warranty regardless. I would recommend contacting the store of where it was purchased and have them help you with the warranty issue.

Tv turns it self off after only 2-3 seconds and makes crack noise


Since the set is less than 1 year old, it should still be under warranty. Request warranty service.

The noise you are hearing is probably arcing inside the set on the power supply board. Continuing to attempt to turn on the set will only make things worse. Please request warranty service as this is unusual for a TV that new.

Keeps turning off


This unit has a common problem with fans. If one of the cooling fans is intermittent the unit will turn off when the fan fails. A qualified tech with a service remote can get into the service menu and on this unit the is a menu line that shows pwr down failures.
