    Problem is going to be in power supply boards if you had no audio then I would be more out to think on the main Board that has turner/AV inputs

Picture not clear, mostly black.

Well you most likely will need a technician or if you have technical ability........the Y sus board which operates the drivers of the plasma some instances it will need both the y sus and the z sus boards.........the repair could range between $300 and $500 . be sure to go to an LG auth service. If you would like assistance on how to repair your self,let me know!!

Power but no picture

the Y-SUS BOARD is for picture in tv.if the picture is not coming or not proper the Y-SUS board needs replacing .but if the picture is blurry or with linings reparing helps.but in your case the tv does not turns on with y-sus board connected only error led comes on.this means y-sus board needs replacement.
you can get it from
if you are not familiar with replacing the y-sus board its advisable to get it done by local tv repair technician familiar with your brand/model.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution if helped.thank you for using fixya.

50 inch dell plasma tv has audio but no video

the problem was the y-sus board, i had a local tv repair shop diagnos that much for me. although, he couldn't fix it i did some research and found a company in california,, who could. you send him the y-sus board and the two buffer boards and he not only repairs them but he upgrades them. apparently the y-sus board gets too much heat and eventually goes out, sometimes the buffer boards are affected too. replaces the components on the y-sus board with better parts which are more heat resistent. i believe this will help you with your problem. let me know...good luck.

Audio, but no picture

Not having the electrical diagrams makes that hard.
I would say that finding a good tech with parts access is your best bet.
You've spent a good chuck-o-change on it.

Maxent 42" Plasma TV takes 3 - 5 minutes to sync after turning on

I had the same issue....thankfully, I had purchased an extended warranty from Best Buy...I had been in a panic, because I NEVER thought I would pay a grand for a tv, but I LOVE it...anyway.....I had the "Geek Squad" come to look at the tv....the tech took 30 secs....there is a problem with your Y-SUS (Y-sustain board) will need to be replaced...and...the tech called another tech, and he advised that the Z-SUS be replaced as well (apparently he had to go back to the same home after a Y-SUS replacement to change out a failed Z-SuS).....retail on Y-SUS is about $300...ebay has them for less than half that, if you think you can do it yourself...keep in mind that "Maxent" is a Zenith/LG product, so finding parts might be a challenge if you base it upon Maxent....hope this helps!!

My LG Plasma TV RU42PX10C

Hi all..i had the same problem with my 42 inch LG
rz42px11. its a faulty zsus board(Z sustain part no 6871QZH033A) the pop
sound was the fuse on the board blowing.not that hard to replace but be careful with the connector ribbons! got my replacement from £150....expensive,but probably cheaper than
calling someone out to fix it.
P.S i tried just to replace the fuse on the board T2AH 250v but it blew,i think the fact the fuse blows means the board is faulty..but you could try.
hope this helps someone.
Good Luck
