Question about LG 52LG70 52 in. LCD HDTV
If you are able I would suggest taking back off and "looking" at power board.
You want to see if any puffed up caps on that board(follow power cord to the board).
If you are not able to do that consider having a shop look at it before more damage can happen.
Here is what to look for if you get it open:

For bobby11 and luis, it is the power supply. Part Number EAY34797001 in the 42" and EAY34796801 in the 32". This is a known problem, and somebody should start a Class Action against LG over this one. Part is available online and easy to swap out for anyone with the most basic knowledge.

Your plasma TV has a power supply 6709900019A. These power supplies failed due to defective capacitors. See the picture below and check the capacitors mark with the red lines. There are 10 capacitors that should be replaced even if they do not show signs of bulging/swelling on top.
The value of the capacitors is 3300uF/10V but you can use 25 volts as long as they fit in the space provided by design.

I have seen several LG plasma that have a pink picture and everytime it has been a failed control pwb. This bd is located under the assembly that houses the main digital bd. The main dig. bd is the one with all of the inputs.

SOURCE: TV will not power on.
The clicking you hear is a relay that connects,
then disconnects the AC to prevent fire or further damage.
If it just fails to turn on, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself.
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.
There are likely two power supplies, a main (larger) and possibly a separate supply for the plasma display.
Without inspecting your set it is difficult to determine which may have failed since the high voltage supply may use an output from the main supply.
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace it or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.
Not easy to diagnose without having made a few measurements first.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the insight, I will follow your suggestions and see where the path leads!"
Hello sir, hi, the symptom you have describe can be traced on the Power Supply board, either minor problem such as loose connections and screws, or a major one that needs replacement of the entire Power supply board.
Have a look, and check for loose contacts, screws that needs to be tighten but you need to open up that big TV.
Or if that does not solve the problem, its the major one, needs to replace the entire PS board.
