Black box within picture for LG 42pc5D

I frequently get a black box ontop of the picture that scrolls down what appears to be some type of error lines..this continues for approx 1 min. then disappears. If you touch the remote at anytime during this it stops, and then comes back. The error line appears to have an e:\ followed by the date and some random alphanumeric code.

Any ideas..thanks

    same problem as above mentioned... a box that covers my picture and if you touch the remote or anything like that it goes away, but same error lines that come up within the blackout portion of the screen.... HOWEVER I have noticed that some channels are much more prone to this happening than others. have you heard any solutions to this problem? I would be interested

I have sound but no picture on my LG 42PC5D-AB Plasma TV. I have checked the cables and they are all connected ok. turned on this morning and there was sound and no picture

If the display is totaly blank from turning the set on it sounds to me that the display is gone and all you can do is replace the display witch for a 42" set it woudl be cheaper to replace.

No picture

The suggested repair is correct - "won't happen again" is a pipe dream. Best you can do put a UPS on the TV, which addresses one situation.
