Question about LG 50PC5D Television

2 Answers

Lightning serge I just paid of my LG so I can help America out of dept than Whamm lighting struck! However, the power still comes on and you can tell a faint flickering (approx 3 sec per flicker) in the pitcher and no sound. Jugging by the green power light it still reacts to the remote when press any command. Oh PS the lighting hit across the street not to the tv directly. Thanks for any help.

    Are you talking about a button beside the 8 under the screen. if so i can't find that one. Though I've tried hitting all 8 of them.

    Hi I really appreciate you helping me out here. Basically all I heard was a sonic boom than all the power went off in my house. Once the power was resolved in about 2 seconds the I did not have sound nor picture on my plasma. There where a playstation 3 and a cable box plug into the same "surge protector" and both of them are operating properly for what I can tell.
    My power lite will come on from red to green talking from the remote or the power button under the tv. Once that has be pushed it will do a faint flicker (approx every 3 seconds). Thats pretty much all that it does now. Also when i try to turn it off it take about 8 seconds for the power light to go green to red. I can't pull up a menu or anything of that nature as well. Once again thanks for all your help

Hi,
I'm afraid to say after lightning strike, TV becomes junk so do not waste your time and money on it.
Sorry for bad news but it is fact.
Thanks.

If you check underneath the t.v there may be a button that you need to push. then you can use the remote to turn it on. took about 2 hours before I found it.

mine is located on the bottom left, right underneath the screen.

    Do you get sound on Audio Line-Out pins of LG TV?
    You can check
    sound at Audio Line Out pins by connecting any Amplifier / Home Theater
    system. If TV has sound out at Line Out terminals, then Output Amp is
    defective in your TV.
    If there is no sound on above said pins, then its some thing complicated and needs service manual to rectify.

You need to contact your insurance because that surge destroyed the TV circuit boards.

Did you have a power surge after a loss of power? If so your TV is ruined from the surge. In the future use a surge protector if don't already.

Nothing works.


Remote receiver got fried by the voltage spike. If you have pull chain controls as well, you can remove the receiver and possibly be able to save the fan, but the capacitors, may have also been fried. If the capacitors are fried, then most likely the motor experienced some seriously high voltage too, which would mean I would replace the fan. I assume you have had the house's wiring inspected? If lightning struck the house and killed the fan, then it likely ALSO damaged other electrical components. If the lightning struck your power transformer and not your home directly, you may can get the power company to pay for this ceiling fan as the transformer is supposed to have a lightning arrester on it.

Stereo struck by lightning and i need to fix it...


I would have thought it will become obvious from the burnt parts and broken parts inside the amp, if it was struck by lighting, when you take the top off. But clearly unless it has an aerial connection, it will have to be from the mains lead that lighting went in to the unit, so a good look around the power supply section, I think first.
To be honest depending on the damage if you fix this one they should give you top marks!
Many service people would say no-chance!
