I have a two year old high def LG Plasma TV Model 42PC3D. Have so

I have a two year old high def LG Plasma TV Model 42PC3d. It started suddenly giving a fuzzy flickering picture but after about 15 minutes the picture would clear up on its own. However the problem worsened and now all I get is a black screen. Sound is OK. Fuses are OK. The problem is NOT with the input but with the TV since the problem persists regardless of the input (antenna or satellite). Can you come up with any solutions?

    Thanks. I suspected the "y" or "Z' circuits could be the problem. Should I replace them both?It would be cheaper than sending it to the repair shop.

    USUALLY IF THE Y IS BAD YOU GET NOTHING ON SCREEN. IF THE Z IS BAD YOU MAY HAVE A FAINT IMAGE IF YOU PRESS YOUR MENU BUTTON. YOU MIGHT TRY ENTERING THE MODEL # ON SHOPJIMMY.COM IF THAT DOESN'T COME UP SEND ME THE COMPLETE MODEL OFF THE BACK OF THE UNIT IT USUALLY WILL BE SOMETHING LIKE 42PC3D-UA AUSJPD. ON LG UNITS IT IS CRITICAL YOU GET THE COMPLETE MODEL.ALSO GET THE MANUFACTURING DATE OFF THE BACK.

The problem with plasmas is that this problem can be caused by four or more circuit boards. You have to check alot of different things to isolate which board is the problem. The unit should be taken to a repair shop because the voltages inside are "Dangerous". This can be expensive to fix, price ranges from $100-$300 a board, plus labor.

BROKEN PLASMA SCREEN


Unfortunately, you'll have to replace the whole plasma screen to fix it. It's the most expensive part of the TV.
The web link below is the cheapest place to get a new screen.
http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?q=lg+screen&p=2

If your TV is model 42PC3D, they don't have your screen in stock right now. If you look at the other screens that are 42", the are $350 and up. Other web site will charge more than double for the same screen.

Sorry to give you bad news.
