Without testing I wouldn't suggest the Power supply is not defective: 1st, the control module is working because you gave it an ON command, 2nd the SMPS has received the the start up. The secondary voltages for the Y sustain and Z sustain modules are shutting down, probably due to a shorted IPM on either of the two modules mentioned. This problem is one you should contact your nearest svc center for a complete diagnosis. If I can be of any other assistance please e-mail me.

`How do I fix my LG tv? It's making a high pitched noise and there is a black screen, is it fixable?

Get it to a tv dealer but my guess is its died. It may not be economical to repair but you may be pleasantly surprised and its a small job. LG are usually pretty good so I'm surprised its gone at this age.

4 year old 50PC1DRA LG Plasma tv. TV would come on after several tries, now will not turn on at all. Just clicks. From what I read here, could be power supple? Is a 4 year old TV worth putting that...

It's the capacitors on the power supply, it's a common problem, either buy a capacitor repair kit (yes they make them) and have a TV tech solder them on, or buy a new power supply board (about $200) and remove and replace it yourself (it's that easy)

i'm having exactly same problem. Not only I also other people have same issue. I dropped this heavy TV to the certified LG repair centre and the esimation cost for repair is $500.00 CDN. We decided to pick it up without the repair even we paid $100.00 just for the inspection.

My TV was working but no power at all now.
The repair centre says it's defact part so they are not responsible.
LG should recall this model.

42" LG 42LC7D LCD TV stuck in demo mode?

Did you have any luck? My LG is stuck in demo mode too. Menu button doesn't work, and keylock was on as default so I can't use the buttons on the TV itself.

Have you tried unplugging the TV, wait a minute the replug it in? TVs have built in computers and often they may latch up, like a bug and need to be 'rebooted'.
