LG 50" Plasma Start Up Problems

My wife was watching TV when the TV just turned itself off. When we tried to turn the TV back on...the green power up button blinks twice, then kicks off displaying the red off button. Our Plasma is a little over 2 years, and we do have a 3 year warrenty from Brand Smart. Is this a common accurance, and what is the fix???

    i turn on tv then 2sec. it turns off auto

    I have a 50" LG Plasma TV. I bought it Dec. 3, 2006. On Dec. 1, 2006 it did the same thing. It would blink two times when turned on then shut itself down. One day left to the manufacturer's warranty I went to the LG recommended site closest to where I live. They came took my TV four days later and I got it back two days before Christmas. It was under the manufacturer warranty. Now one week after the new year it has bit the dust again. hey came and picked it up and I am to call in four days. I am not impressed with the product's life. I love the TV but I really think it should have lasted longer. We'll see what this repair turns up. Stay tuned, I'll be back with the results.

The logical fix would be to activate your 3 year warranty, messing about yourself is unlikely to fix it and very likely to void your warranty. The time for do it yourself repairs is when you have no warranty.

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.

Here's a link to the service manual for a slightly larger LG LCD TV. Perhaps it may be of some help? The troubleshooting section appears to be the same for many models of LG TVs...

This isn't an easy fix, it sounds like your power supply board is bad or there is a main board problem. I'd suspect a faulty power supply capacitor or heatsink missing, but you have to bring it in to a tech to know for sure.

I have a 50 in lg plasma tv model num50pk540 and when i turn it on it clicks right back off then again by itself 10 sec later


Hey Patrick...i know exactly what the problem is, and if you take a look at the video i posted on youtube, then you will have a better understand why your tv is clicking... Most likely it's your voltage regulator thats damaged, and needs to be replaced. I'm also selling a power supply board on ebay now, if you're interested, so check your board's model number to make sure its the right one. email at catpyco@yahoo.com if you have any question.and watch the video:

I have a 50 inch LG plasma tv that is less than 2 years old. It use to turn on by itself throughout the night, and now it's completely not working???


Hi there
Try doing a system reset on the TV, by unplugging everything from it, then wait 3 minutes and plug the power lead in only. If it works, then plug everything back in one by one. If the problem persists it may be that the software has been corrupted in an update process, which can be performed at night via the aerial signal (this may be why it was turning on at night). In which case contact the TV manufacturer.
Hope this helps

Firmware is avialable for download on the philips web site. The latest one that is the bundle of mutiple patches may not patch all the problems. Looks like it has to be applied indivdually.. -anil
