LG PLASMA TV SUCKS...loud popping sound...and its gone

It doesnt matter its new or old...when you hear that popping sound...your money is gone...THIS IS LG PLASMA TV. there is no help or support available..no service manual available...only solution is to take it to any service technician...paying almost half of the price of the TV. so buy a new one and dont think of LG again.

Bad experience as well with LG 50" plasma.



I purchased this TV brand new, the TV arrived, and it has a great picture, and lots of nice features, particularly on the inputs.

Unfortunately 9 days after the TV was set up in my home, the panel completely went out, no menus nothing. Being a patient reasonable guy, I called the retailer and then LG support. After 3 visits from the LG approved flunky repair guy, where he changed a part, "had to order a new part," then that didn't fix it, try again! Sadly incompetent. The third time he says the panel has to be replaced. At this point every part inside the TV has been changed! My call to LG to ask for compensation for their crappy quality and service feel on deaf ears. LG does not care about making customers happy, or quality control, apparently. 3 weeks without the TV I paid for, LG says take it back to the store. Maybe yours will work, but I would not trust LG as a company, they are poorly run at best.

I am returning the TV, and will not buy another LG product....ever.

I agree do not buy LG I have had a horrible time with this bad bad bad company. I have a 90 day old what they call a $3000 60" plasma thant has been broke now a month, with all kinds of idiots who cant seem to fix it. LG wont help keep send more fools out to "FIX IT" which never seems to happen. I mean this was not a walmart special tv it was their top of the line plasma flagship lg60pk950. Customer service is a joke, wait times are on the average of 30-60 minutes when you call and they lie to you. Everytime you call you get a different story. RUN as fast as you can away from any LG product

My LG Plasma television DU-42PX12XC had a loud pop


Your tv contains protection circuitry that would shut down the tv if the ymain was out. If the ymain had blown, you'd have no sound and just a flashing standby light. My gut tells me you need to replace the Power Supply Board (PSB). I've seen this before and after spending too much money trying to diagnose a ymain failure, I was surprised to learn that when you have sound but no picture, the psb is a gonner. Try ebay, shopjimmy.com or discount-merchant.com for a replacement.
Good Luck!

LG plasma tv made loud popping noise


The plasma gas tubes may be damaged or the gas couldve leak out. remember plasma have to remain upright at all times even when transporting them, if they are not you should just set it up straight for about 3-4 hours before turning it on.

I have a LG Plasma 42" TV and the screen doesnt come on.


Could be the XL/XR scan circuits, or a problem on the sustain board.

How old is your tv?

HEARD LOUD POP NOISE DLP TV DOES NOT WORK


Following up on my Feb 7 post. My new lamp arrived, and I replaced it and it works great. The old lamp had many shards of glass come out of it. It was tore up. I saved some money buy purchasing just the lamp and not the cartridge. It's a little bit more work to take apart, but saves money. Mitsubishi wanted $289 for the lamp replacement kit. I got a lamp for $114. TV is working just fine now!

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.

LG PLASMA TV WITH COLOURED LINES OVER SCREEN


If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.
