Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Sound but no picture

I have experienced the exact same problem at someone else here has posted.
The picture went green and purple randomly. Shortly afterwards there was a loud clicking noise and the picture went. The sound still works though. Coincidentally this problem occurred not long after the 24 month warranty time period.

    I recently purchased a 42pc5d plasma t.v and even from the first time I turned it on the screen will occasionally flicker from the program to black and at times go completely black, and the only way to resolve it is to constantly turn it off and on. I have had it work without problems upwards of two weeks whereas some days I cant get more than 30 seconds out of it. I have switched outlets, RCA cables, component cables and even coax but the problem persists with any and all systems that are connected to the T.V. I have gone through the owners manual several times and all the t.v menu's thinking it might be some sort of power save device and still cant get it to work.

LG 42PC!R Plasma TV turns on and then green led blinking with no ppicture and sound !


Your problem is most likely a fried circuit board. I always connect my good electronic to a back up battery. but your problem might have been storm or surge related, I would take it to a repair center and get an estimate.

Green tint on tv and picture randomly cuts out


Sounds like a Sony, if it uses a lamp the green cast is most likely the optical light engine in the set---major part.

Your set has a problem with its power supply. If it is under warranty, have it replaced ASAP. If your warranty has expired, you can take the set to any good repair shop - ask for an estimate before having any work done to it.

This sound like you are having problems with the power supply board. Since you are getting a momentary picture and sound the fuses are good but TVs today have "shorts" and "overvoltage" circuitry build in that will shut it down on errors. Someone knowledgeable in electronics will have to isolate the exact cause.

TV's on. No Picture...No Sound


Have a problem with Zenith 37 HDTV. Medel number: Z37LZ5D As wathcing TV, along with 'pop' sound, TV went dead. LG service center gave an advice to unplug the power cord and press ON/OFF power switch about 1 min. Then plug power back and turn on the TV. Well, the green light blink for a while and solid green, but still no screen, no audio. Search the Web and someone suggested to replace Power Supply Board which will fix the problem. Again, search the Web and came out with Power Supply Board. LG Electronics/Zenith 'Power Supply Assembl' with $124.95 from PartStore.com. Is it the right solution? Do I have to replace entire Assembly Board? not just replacing some fuse? Any cheaper way to do? If I have to replce PSA board, any suggestion to how? Comment posted on Apr 22, 2009 I have a basic knowledge of electric and electronics, such as rewiring entire house for renovation and assemble entire computer from scratch.
Actually, the TV belongs to my father and the problem that I stated was based on what he told me.
So the question is based on the symptom that I posted, how sure are you that the problem is the Power Supply Board?
Is it good to order PSB? Comment posted on Apr 23, 2009 Purchased 2 and half years ago. Expired one year warranty. Comment posted on Apr 23, 2009 Zohail,
This is LCD TV.
There is no problem with the wall socket nor current.
I put other appliances on same wall socket and worked.
It has to be internal problem.
As I mentioned on the main post, there was a 'pop' sound while watching and TV went dead.
Turn on remote control, there is blink green light and then green stays on, but no sound, no screen.
Turn off remote control, light turns red. Comment posted on May 14, 2009 I fixed the TV.
Orderd power supply board which cost me $136.51 total.
Replacing was simple.
Just removed the rear panel cover then electronic board housing cover.
Took power supply board with all the connector cables and replaced with new one.
Problem was a transformer connector which got burned and blow up the plastic cover.
But no problem with fuse and capacitors.

Thanks all for advises.

Blackout, High Pitch Squeel


Funny to see this because this is exactly what is happening to my 32 inch TV and I was researching to see if some one else had this problem and right away I find this, I've had my set for over a year now, and I have no solution at this time, but I will continue to research this, I figured that Protron would blame the cable company,that's what company's with crappy products usually do. Blame someone else.
