from the model number you have a 42" set,,the v_set and v_scan voltages need to be set 15vdc lower..this should take care of it,,if not then the plasma panel is bad

My Mom's LNR408D also had sound but no picture. I was able to fix it by soldering in a jumper wire across a blown (1.5A ???) SMD picofuse on the "T-Con" board.
Consider attempting this ONLY if you: 0) Know enough to avoid the potentially fatal High Voltage parts of the power supply board!!!
1) Are a fearless hackazoid 2) know what you're doing with a soldering iron and teensie SMD parts 3) are gonna throw the busted thing out anyway so you have nothing to lose and won't be sad if you screw something up.
4) Know enough to avoid the potentially FATAL High Voltage parts of the power supply board!!!!!
This board is at the top center under a close fitting RF shield. The suspect part was labeled "CP" on the board and marked with "P" on the part. It is visible above the right-center of the connector from the main board. An ohmmeter showed it as open, so I bypassed it with a jumper wire from connector VIN to the hot side of C13. One image shows the suspect part and the jumper in place.
The other shows the TCON board placement top-center (under its RF shield). With care, it seems possible to test the fuse and put the jumper in place without removing the shield. (Obviously don't touch anything else with the VOM leads!)
Thanks to ZORBUS and Steve's TV and Electronics for the idea.

Another "same probelm"
My set has encountered this magical 50/50 split screen and it seems to be quite a problem since I am not the only one researching this issue. LG was of no use because of course it is just out of warranty. Any solutions on fixing this or am I out of money in buying a new plasma?

I had this problem on a 37" Viewsonic LCD. Pulled it apart and through a process of elimination, I traced the problem back to a small board with several flat white ribbon cables coming out of it. The board was near the top center of the screen and under a ton of other equipment requiring almost a total disassembly.
This small board was clean but I noticed one of the rubber standoffs had slipped down and was making contact with one of the outputs running to the LCD. It also happened to be the output running to the section of the screen with the problem.
I postulated that the sticky glue on the rubber standoff may have just enough conductivity to cause a problem. Moved it so that it was no longer touching anything electrical and then reassembled the TV.
Afterwards, I turned it on and was pleased to see the problem has gone away! If you're having the vertical line problem, then maybe this could be your problem too, especially if you have a Viewsonic since it could be a manufacturing defect.
