Hello nothing_can_& 20204050, My name is Dave, Are you willing or able to remove the back cover from the TV? If so do you know how to use a DMM (digital multimeter) or at least know some one that dose? My reason for all the questions is in order to figure out what PCB board is bad you need to at least test the fuses on all the main PCB boards (Y sus, Z sus and Main power supply). To do this you will need to have a DMM that can test for continuity. Most of the time the bad board in the TV will have a bad fuse on the board. Please feel free to give me a call or message me if you have any questions or if you would like some additional help! Ask for Dave @ 1-503-432-9904 / pleasefixitdave@yahoo.com

This is almost certainly the device that sends electricity to the the plasma in the panel after failing. Bring to your local repair shop and expect to pay 300-400 parts and 100-200 labour.

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.

LG "NO PICTURE" , IF FIX WILL RECUR? ,DID LG FIX DESIGN FLAW 42PC3D


I had same problem - no picture, but sound worked - LG 42PC3d - was two months past warranty, but LG agreed to fix it as a warranty call. Service guy was out within a week to replace the Z SUS(?) board. Works fine now. This must be a typical problem, as LG did fix it, even though the warranty had expired. Good luck.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture


Our LG 50" plasma tv screen went black after a popping noise but still had sound, after great diliberations decided to take the back off and have a peek!
We unplugged the tv and tested the fuses (there were three we could see) one had blown, the one on the left as you look at the back of the tv it also has one above it. We wrote the code/seriel number down and took the fuse to the electrical wholesalers Maplin and bought a pack of 10 fuses for £1.29 replaced the fuse in the tv and everything now fine!!!!!!
Hope this might be of use to anyone whose lost the picture after a loud popping/snacking noise but still has sound.
