Question about LG 42PG20 42 in. Plasma HDTV

Open Question

I have a LG 42PG200 Plasma TV 6 months old

I have a LG 42PG200 Plasma TV my problem is that the TV switches on automatically during the night usually somewhere betwen 12:30am to 1:30am. No preset timings set. Usually comes on with same channel each time (channel V - music channel) and on a low volume setting and the remote info button won't work . The only button to work on remote is usually the 0n/off power button but sometimes you can change channels. This is an intermittant problem occurring usually once or twice a week. I have not consulted my supplier yet I am just curious to find out if others have the same problem before I complain.

SOURCE: Remote control does not work for my plasma tv

I also had this same problem. Both the original remote and my universal remote failed to give any response on the TV. Normally the green light flashes when it receives a command from the remote. Called LG Support and they made me an appointment with a local repair company for 3 days later. This seemed pretty quick compared to other companies repair times I'd read about. However next day the repair company called to say it would be 5 more days before they could get a Tech to my location (downtown ATL). 8 days was a long time to wait but once tech arrived he diagnosed it to a bad board and simply went to his truck and swapped it out with mine under factory warranty. Everything has been fine since.

SOURCE: TV freezes when switching to a digital channel

The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

SOURCE: Lg Plasma Display settings keep switching

When you boot up your tv for the first time, you get to choose between home and shop-mode.
In your case, he TV is set to "shop-mode".
Then it will go back to factory settings after 5-10 minutes. (so that customers won't mess up the settings all the time)

So change the settings from shop to home, and your problem is fixed!

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.
