Question about LG RZ-42PY10 42 in. HDTV Plasma
Thanks for using FixYa. The red tint on the screen is due to a bad lamp or a faulty inverter board. It could also be a dry joint somewhere in the drive electronics. Lamp faults are often intermittent as they can be dependent on temperature among other things. This can make internal shorts come and go. Service Engineers will often take the back off the set and gently tap the neck of the tube to prove or disprove the lamp problem.
Please get this checked as disassembling the TV could be very dangerous as it has very high charge even when it’s switched off.
There is an internal short on the circuit board of your TV & due to this the TV screen first turns red and then after overheating (due to short circuit on the board) it turns itself off. However, these kinds of short circuits on display board cause the lamp to go bad.
If you can't see the fans moving and neither anything appearing on the screen then due to shorted connections and which resulted in overheating of lamp. Further checking the TV circuit is not advisable as i have earlier told you that the TV contains very high voltages even when it’s switched off and fiddling with any unknown part/circuit can be fatal.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
