Question about LG 42PC3D 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Plasma Picture going in and out

TV picture on plasma goes in and out. Will stay on for 30 seconds and then go out for 30 seconds but the audio remains on regardless. When the picture is on, the picture is perfect which makes me think there is a short inside the television or maybe a dust issue. Also, when I lightly shake the television it will come back on. I checked all of the connections and they are fine. I also plugged my comp into the back of the TV and the same problem happens so I know it is not the cable. Any ideas on a more permanent fix?

It sounds like you have a bad solder connection on the video board. Most likely, you will have to take the set into a shop and have it fixed unless you are familiar with electronics.

I have audio but no picture on my Zenith Z50PG10 50" plasma tv?


Plasmas are like tube TV's(CRT). Once the plasma tube breaks, air gets in, plasma gas gets out. And that's it. They are an enclosed vacuum picture tube. I don't know why people buy plasma. The newer LED have a much better picture. Rich people who swear by plasma, are ridiculous in my opinion. Again, if plasma tube breaks, thats it. Any wrong jarring can break a plasma tube.

Turn on the TV, red light stays on, picture goes blank after a second.


I have the same problem. Factory reset did not help (hold Vol-minus on set and menu on remote five seconds, then unplug). Can there be something in service mode that would help?

If the tv just does this phenomena for some seconds specially when there is a change from video analog to digital.

Plasma wnt stay on


I have had this problem in some models of plasma sets before. In most cases the power supply and main drive boards had to be replaced. In a small number of cases the failure was the screen itself.

In all cases, the cost of the repair was expensive. For the screen failure, the set was scrapped.
