Hi!

If you are not familiar with electronics, then fixing with be expensive!! Labor and parts will run you close to the purchase of a new one! It could be more then one board, with this symptom. I recommend buying new, and enjoy the new technology. Good luck, I hope this is helpful!

It does sound like the convergence board which is fixable but the price and time might outweigh the new technology you will get from a new set

Try first unplugging power cord to reset the unit.

    If you already reset power try restarting the unit with no cable attached, a bad HDMI cable can cause the fault state.

    If it is not a bad cable, then it is probably a faulty main unit, that is the board hosting tuner circuit. here the part for about $150

    the part for about $150, the labour is about $150, the total cost will be about $300/$350 maybe less depending on the repairer.

LG 42 inch plasma went ded in the middle of evening and cannot be revived......one year old made in march 011


Y-Sustain board or driver board should be suspected. Just check this link and select the site named 'Eelctro-help'. There are detailed description about most of the faults that can occur to a plasma tV. Functionally all plasma TV s are the same, except in brand name.

This is a common problem with any make Plasma, chances are the Y sustain module has gone bad. Sometimes it takes 3 separate modules by recommendation from mfg's to be replaced at the same time. Let me know what you have done with this issue please?

42'' LG Plasma bought in Australia doesn't work in UK?


Find out if Australia uses a different standard of HD programming than Guernsey or not since it's not picking up any channels at all with an attenna. Does the skybox use only scart connections and that's how your small lcd is connected to it?

LG 42PX5D 42 in. HDTV Plasma


Send it back ASAP and get a replacement! I'm serious. You wouldn't want to baby sit this lemon by missing work because you're waiting for a home service tech provided by the company. When the tech comes, he will not have the part required to fix the unit and you'll be waiting at least a week to get another service call. That's another day missing work. You are one lucky guy if the servicer can totally fix the unit to your satisfaction in two visits. Days missed at work could very well add up into buying a new TV. Do not take ownership of this problematic unit especially if you just bought it. Send it back!

Lg42px52 speckling.


The speckling is caused by the CTRL board. The firmware needs to be updated. Unfortunately LG does not provide a media slot for downloaded upgrades. You must order an install the factory updated CTRL board located between the power and the Y sustain boards.

SCREEN FOR LG 42PX5D 42 in.


I have dealt with Lg in the past regarding screens and they are unable to sell them as a spare as they are so expensive, they are only used in production and a complete new HD TV is cheaper to buy than a screen. for example LG37LP1D £900.00, a replacement screen £1500.00
