I have a lg 42px5d hd plasma screen has just gone black but we have complete sound? is this able to be fixed.

Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

What is more than likely the issue is that your HD Plasma TV may have a burnt-out Inverter or bad Inverter cable, as these are two components are key to the back lighting necessary for illuminating your plasma screen.

In cases like this, it would be advisable for you to contact the manufacturer (LG) first, to see if there are any known issues they are having with your model of plasma TV, or if there have been any whole unit or part recalls for this model.

The next step I would recommend after contacting the manufacturer would be to take your Plasma TV to a local TV repair shop for a least a diagnosis to see what the cause of the screen black out may be.

This does appear to be a hardware issue, but check with the professionals on this problem, is my recommendation.

I hope this helps.

Try connecting any other device to the TV and check to confirm whether the issue is with the TV. Then, try resetting the TV to the factory settings. If the issue persists, try Power resetting the TV and check. If the issue still persists, the TV may require service.

I have a LG 50PX1D-UC plasma TV with a black vertical line

You could have a Driver Board that has a loose connection or a Ribbon Cable that has a intermittent connection to the Plasma Panel, or a defective Plasma Panel. Either one could cause the problem and I would recommend only a Qualified Service Person to check it out.
Here is LG's Customer Service Number. 1800-243-0000. They could direct you to a Local Service Facility.
I hope this helps,

I am looking for either LCD or Plasma TV 40-47' that is CableCARD slot equip. I found a couple offering the LG 42PX5D claiming it has CableCARD However when I look at LG specs it seems to say it does not....

It is Digital Cable Ready (CableCARD)

I'd stay away from them personally because of the following reasons:
1. No video on demand (VOD) or electronic program guide (EPG)
2. No PVR function - would require a PVR to record
3. CableCARD units cost more
4. CableCARD may not get the latest channel releases
5. Customer support is lacking as not many people are using CableCard

I have dealt with Lg in the past regarding screens and they are unable to sell them as a spare as they are so expensive, they are only used in production and a complete new HD TV is cheaper to buy than a screen. for example LG37LP1D £900.00, a replacement screen £1500.00
