Re: problems

Its a hardware problem. If its an expensive TV it may be worth getting someone to look at it and get it fixed. If its a cheaper one better off buying a new one.

I've also had a popping noise on our 50" LG plasma TV, however the picture has not gone, but has turned grainy and colors are weird. Can this also be a blown fuse or a more severe problem (ysus board or similar)?

LG 47" LCD shuts down several times w/ blinking red light.

Granger1212 we had the same problem. We called LG and although our LG was out of warranty by 4 months, we were asked to supply our proof of purchase and LG sent a serviceman to our home and in 2 days we had our television back working wonderfully. It's the power supply, call LG and BE NICE, I'm sure they will fix it.

Plasma TV technical difficulty

if you can still see the picture its most likely the control board that's going bad, you will still need a tech out to fix the issue.

I work for a auth LG service center and each time I have had this symptom we had to either change what called the T_CON control board or the Plasma display panel itself. You need to cocntact LG @ 800-253-0000 report your problem and they will find a service center in your area you should have 1 year warranty parts and labor.

Red line

as you said, this is a scan problem, but maybe not from the 'board' itself but maybe the flex cable. sometimes it becomes loose and it makes a bad connection between the panel and the board. if the tv is under waranty: please call LG service customer they are very friendly and thay can give you a reference number that will get you a free repair in an authorized LG service center... anyway thats the way we work around here (qu?bec,canada). let me know

If these are thick black lines, this is most likely line frequency noise entering the set. you may have a leakage from the DC ground on the secondary side of the powersupply to the AC side, or a bad filter capacitor(s).
