I realized that I bought a piece of junk. It will probably cost me as much to fix it as it did to buy it. Therefore I wont be buying another piece of junk plasma tv. I will buy a product that is warranteed for a reasonable time. My TV was a Hitachi but from what I read from other plasma tv owners, they are all the same. What kind of company sells products that last for a fraction of time in relation to the cost? How can we continue to purchase inferior products for outrageous money? Remember the old TVs, they lasted for years for a fraction of the price!!

    As infuriating as it is to see an expensive appliance bite the dust a week or so after warranty, we all forget the the law is on our side. Any appliance that costs a reasonable amount of money should be expected to last longer than 12 months. My $2500 LG Plasma died 2 months after the warranty expired, and of course LG didn`t want to know about it. One call to LG from consumer protection to remind them that a $2500 TV should last at least 4-5 years, resulted in my Plasma being repaired free of charge. I could tell that they wern`t happy about it, but they knew I was in the right. TRUE STORY!

No picture but have sound


That click might have originated in 2 places: either it was the main relay disconnecting or it was the sound of a capacitor popping. Both are very severe problems - they signal that the power source of your tv has just failed.
Fixing it is a job for someone with electronics experience, if you're not one then call a repairman.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture


Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.
