I have a LG601D plasma tv the problem is while whatching tv the picture will start to flicker off & on then no picture but still has sound what could it be

Sound without picture.
It could be the sustain board and control board problem.
Maybe Overheat or Blown.
It will need few hundreds to change them.
Will suggest to get a brand new LED LCD.

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.
Copy each of the following links into your browser address bar and watch all the videos.
You will have a pretty good understanding of what to do afterward.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

I have a phillips tube type HD TV approximately 5 years old. It quit working suddenly tonight. It is connected to Direct TV and that system appears to be working fine. When I give power to the Satellite...

This sounds like a power supply problem in the TV. The chirping sound is probably a relay turning on and off as the overload circuit is triggered, trips, then resets, etc. Electrolytic capacitors in the power supply usually have a cylindrically shaped metal case with 2 or 3 legs, and their chemicals dry out in a few years, and they fail. Sometimes they bulge out or crack and leak chemicals, and sometimes they blow up. I've seen 15 year old IBM monitors go from fuzzy green to factory fresh, just replacing 5 or 6 electrolytics in the power supply. You can get them at Radio Shack or electronic parts stores, along with a soldering iron, wick, and solder. There are videos on YouTube that show how to solder, and remove solder.
Otherwise, a lot of things could be an unusual culprit, and the unit would have to be systematically troubleshot further, to ascertain the bad part(s). Unfortunately, again, most tv repair facilities replace boards, in stead of taking the time to study schematics and troubleshoot. They have the advantage of having spare parts (and boards), or can order them and charge, whether that fixes it or not. Unfortunately, a lot of times the boards can only be ordered and replaced (not the parts, for which no listing shows up anywhere in the Western hemishere, forcing one to spend well over $100 most of the time.
Hook up another tv the direct output to make sure the tv is, indeed, the unit with the problem.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Do we need to buy an antenna to get this TV ready for Digital TV?

LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.

What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.

If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.

If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)

By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna.
HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface
STB = Set Top Box
High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment)
LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)

If you have anymore questions, ask away.

Directv DVR R15-500 problem

I had a similar problem the orange record light was on and the unit could not be turned on. I didn't want to replace the unit since all recording would be gone. After some googling I found that the problem was related to the power supply. I found three capacitors with swollen tops 2 1000uf@10V and 1 1200uf@10v. I replaced them and everything works again.

Vertical problem

If the IC is running hot, you probably have some bad caps in the circuit. Be sure to have a good capacitor checker that also tests for ESR. Also recheck your soldering work with a magnifying glass. The traces are so fine that it is easy to damage them.

OK changing the caps only resulted in proper filtering and voltage smoothing and did very little to solve your problem. Now what swollen caps are a sign of is an over voltage condition. what I would suggest because you may have a bad voltage regulator, is that you have to get a schematic and measure the voltage levels on the power supply to determine if they are correct or not. This will tell you if the regulator is bad or not. You do have a power supply problem you just have to determine where in the power supply. This can be done with the schematic and a voltmeter.
