Question about LG 50PX1D 50 in. Plasma Television
Had a very loud pop, then the screen went dark! The TV still works, but you can just barely see the screen. My TV is out of warranty. Any Idea's?
I just had the same problem. after talking to many tv repair people i finally got a knowledgeable person to help me. i ordered the part and fixed it myself.
it was very easy. i have an LG model# 50px1d. so if you had this problem i suggest you order the part yourself and fix it. i got an estimate for repair and it wouldv'e cost me at least $500 parts and labor. i paid $230 for the part. so you can see i saved a little more than half. the part you need is the " Z SUS " ASSEMBLY. you can order the part from LG website. the part # is 6871QZH044C.
let's just say after doing everything myself, i am watching TV right now.
by the way LG would not help me at all. spread the word that LG is not a good product.

After no results from LG, I went ahead and purchased the defective part from PartStore.com for around $200 and replaced the part myself. It was really easy (I am a 51 year old female), and I really think anyone could do it. Just be very careful when removing the old part (disconnecting all the connections can be intimidating). While I had the TV open, I went ahead and took off the cooling fans and cleaned them with compressed air, as well as the rest of the internal components. Taking the back off the TV was actually the most difficult part of the job as all the screws are very intimidating, but since the screws will only fit in the holes they belong it, it wasn't so bad.
LG has the poorest customer service I have ever seen. This is the second television that did this. I only had the first one for 33 days and they refused to replace the TV. They were eventurally forced to replace it when they were unable to find anyone trained or prepared to repair it within 100 miles of my residence. Of course, it was without a television for almost 3 months while fighting with them. I reported them to the Better Business Bureau and LG's response back to the BBB was my TV was out of warranty, so they were not required to help. They didn't even address my complaint about them knowing about this issue for years (as is proven on this website).
All-in-all, I am pleased I was able to "save" my $3000 television for $200 and 30 minutes time. I would suggest anyone with this problem try this resolution. It's really easy. If I can do it, you can.

Your power board is bad so it is not giving power to light up the screen.

Comment by Guest, posted on Sep 04, 2008 Hi my name is maggy and I"ve had my LG plasma for 2 years now. A few days ago I heard a loud pop coming from the TV and all of the sudden the screen became dark and hazy. I Immediately contacted LG to see what type of resolution could be reached since I'm OUT of WARRANTY.. They went ahead and extended my WARRANTY and they will have a tecnician at my home on tuesday September 9 to fix the TV at no cost. You need to call 1877-543-8325. This number will connect you directly with an LG representative. Call them
