Question about LG 42PX3DCV 42 in. Plasma EDTV
After a short pop the screen went blank. There was the smell of electrical burning. I unplugged all the equipment. After a few minutes plugged the equipment, i.e. plasma, cable box, receiver, and dvd. All other equipment turned back on and appears operational except for the plasma. Light comes on showing power, but no picture. If it was just not receiving a signal, a screen saver would be on on the screeen showing no signal. Any suggestions?
I work on TV's as a living. This problem is called a Y-Main PCB. Common for Plasma TV's

It could be a few components like the tuner or the component that processes the still images to display on the plasma screen, I forget the technical name for it. Either way you look at it, a part has clearly blown and there's no quick fix. You'll need a professional to take a look inside it to determine what's wrong with it. However, if you're confident enough to open it up, you'll most likely see burn marks where a component has burnt out. Mind, if you open it up, not only are you putting yourself in high danger, but you'll void your warranty if you still have it left. If you do in fact still have warranty, my only recommendation to you would be to return it under warranty. Good luck!
