Hi I have a LG 42' plasma, but it wont turn

Hi I have a LG 42' plasma, but it wont turn on. it does have power but just flashes the on-led green three times then goes back to red. I can here a relay click but not much else.
Im guessing it could be a faulty capasitor or PSU, but unsure which or even both.
Any advise would be great.
Many Thanks
Paul
model PDP42WVSN3

Hi Paul, This seems to be a common issue in most of the plasma flat screens. You are almost accurate in guessing the reason of trouble. The issue with the TV is mainly with the power board itself which happens in most models. Even though if you try replacing board level components you will finally end up in replacing the power board for sure. I managed to find a contact who can help with spare parts of most of the plasma models...i am posting it here for your reference. plasma TV parts-- Steve Hu: masterhu@yahoo.com .
Have a nice day!!!!

42 inch LG plasma tv will turn on green led will flash 3 times and then turn off


Check and replace its main digital board. after replacement, somde adjustments have to be done, and you have to enter its service mode option to do it. Really it is a skilled work, that a customer who has no idea in electronics can do.

You are on the right track, Hopefully if you have some bad caps hope that they are obvious because you can have bad caps that look as good as a brand new one.

I can't turn on my 32 inch plasma tv by LG.A green light flashes twice on the power indicator than turns red.


The flashing indicator is telling you the fault. Give the number of flashes to the LG service department and they can help you with your issue. It will likely need service.
