Most likely a ruptured ceramic capacitor on the main power pcb. The capacitor must be replaced with a different, special, type or it will fail again. We have repaired a lot of them with this problem. If it is less than a year old it is still on parts warranty.

Tv stop playing after thirty minutes and the picture get fussy and its make a loud popping noise. please help.

About the only simple thing you can try is disconnect set and a box if used from power for several minutes and then power all back up to see if when the units reboot the problem is there or not.

The usual repair cost on a 19 inch set will exceed the replacement cost of that set in most cases.

Is it a multi-function remote? If it is, make sure you've punched the TV button before using it. Also, make sure none of the buttons on the remote or the TV have accidentally been pushed down and are stuck.

Loud static noise without warning

The audio may be randomly disconnecting or something. I know that when my TV has no signal coming in, that it makes a bunch of loud static.

My LG 50' plasma tv popped like a firecracker no longer works

You have experienced a plasma eruption. The fix for this may easily surpass the value of the unit - sorry to hear that.

Screaming static

Try turning off different lights near the room or in the room that it is in. Our tv does that if the overhead light in our bedroom is on, it's a room right next to our living room.

Bad capacitors. See the "how too" to replace the bad capacitors and it'll work fine again.

Very loud fan or vibration noise

Listen from the back of the TV and locate the source of the noise. There may be fan with a bad bearing. The noise will lead you to it.
