    When you hit the power, the light flashes 3 long and 7 short flashes. Then it flashes 6 flashes. This is repeated for as long as the supply is there. I have replaced a cap that appeared to be going out to no avail.

How do I test my main board in my 42 LG LED TV?

Testing the board is too complicated to try to explain in this forum. If the tv won't turn on with either the remote or with the tv buttons, the main board is failed and needs to be replaced. I have gotten some tv's working by replacing the EE prom on the main board, but finding the proms is hit and miss. Go to and see if they happen to carry one for your tv.

Samsung plasma won't turn on

Here's is what you need to look for when describing a problem for troubleshooting purposes:

0) What model is the TV (you've covered that)

1) Does the TV respond to command to turn on?
(yes - continue; no - 70% bad power, 30% bad main board)

2) Once it responds (clicks), does a front LED or other indication show that it turns on? It's OK if there's no display.

(that can be model specific and is not certain indication for anything until known what is specific for the model)

3) If such an indication comes up does it remain on until you act or does it go off by itself?
(Stays on - power supply likely good; turns off - power supply *may* be good, but not certain)

4) If the power indication stays on by itself can you make it go off by pressing the power button or do you have to disconnect from AC power?
(responds to power off - 90% power supply likely OK and 90% OK main board; does not respond to power off - 90% bad main board)

Here is a link for test/repair of the power supply of your TV, hope it would help:

1990 panasonic tv model# CTM-2783S won't turn on

the tv need for servicing, the cause is either bad regulator transistor in the power supply section or shorted horizontal output transistor. that is why the main circuit board doesn't get to turn on. to do the repair just ensure you have knowledge in repairing tv.

Main board to your TV is faulty. Check the chroma and video processing section. In most cases, it will be due to an IC fault.

2.the inline protection fuse or the rectifier circuit has malfunctioned ( weak or bad) component and need replacement parts.
3. the clicking sound is the start up circuit but the voltage signal sent to the next circuit is not received therefore the system in not activated.
