Question about LG 42PC3D 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

42" LG Plasma

I still have sound, but after about 5 minutes the picture goes haywire. Had a technician come out. He recommends replacing the circuit board (said either 1 or 2) ...

Is is possible that it only needs a fuse? Has anyone else had this problem.

Hi I am Vortash if you had a service engineer look at the set and say it needs a new board , then you can probably be sure that there is a major component fault on that board .
Due to the fact that all modern televisions today utilise surface mounted components , the old repair in the home days are almost at an end as they need specialist equipment to repair them . It actually sounds like you do not have an awful lot of confidence in the engineers assesment , if this is so call another for a free estimate see if he says the same . At least that will confirm that the first wasn't trying to rip you off . Plus even if it was just a fuse .. fuses don't blow for no reason they usually only blow when there is a fault sorry I couldnt be more encouraging but as I say the days of the quick fix are almost over ... Regards vortash

42" Plasma, no picture, sound


Hi:
The best possible solution to your problem is to replace both sustain boards at the same time, The X and Y sustain boards. LG tech support recommends replacing the digital board as well when replacing their boards, even during LG's tech training seminars they suggest you replace all major boards for continued viewing enjoyment. But in my experience you should replace the X systain also, but make sure the Y you replaced is still good.

Screen lower half goes black/blank


The lower "Y Buffer" board is defective. Best repaired by a technician, or contact Phillips support for the part if you think you are able to replace a small circuit board on your own.

Power will not stay on


With a problem like this, I would use the warranty for the TV.
It's possible a circuit board failure has occurred and the TV is automatically turning itself off to protect it from further damage. Is normally called " Protection Mode " for most TVs.

Being that it's 2 months old, it should be under warranty regardless. I would recommend contacting the store of where it was purchased and have them help you with the warranty issue.

Lg 42" has no picture. but has sound.


Ther aren't any customer fixes for these plasma TVs. When you have no picture on a plasma TV there as many as 4 different circuit boards that could cause it. Sometimes it will require the replacement of more than one board. Call LG fro help. Depending on the age of the TV they may help with repair costs. At the very least, they can refer you to a local factory authorized service center.

Powers up with no Picture


Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
