LG Plasma 50PC5D Help

My LG 50PC5D has been dropped (on carpet) and when I plug it in all it does is make a high pitch sound and has a black screen?
I was told the circiut board may have pulled apart and needs to be re-soldered? And or even a replacement?

Any suggestions?

Hi,
First off I'm sorry to hear that the TV dropped and lost signal especially during this March madness, NBA playoff and MLB opener.
The inside of an LG plasma is like an overzised computer CPU with boards magnified 10x but the current and voltages that run through it are 100x bigger hence only qualified technicians should diagnose and attempt to repair the unit. Granting that the plasma (PDP) panel has not sustained damage (cracks), the technician should open the unit and try to re-seat all the boards and interface cables. Yes, much like computer CPU troubleshooting. Power board may still be good as the unit will power up and you can hear a sound. Have a tech take a look at it and re-seat all the boards. Only then we could get deeper identifying and isolating the problem. Each board cost upwards of $200 while the PDP panel is about 1/3 the price of a new unit. And we're not yet taken into consideration the cost of labor. Best Regards.

LG 50PC5D-UL plasma tv not getting a picture.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

`How do I fix my LG tv? It's making a high pitched noise and there is a black screen, is it fixable?


Get it to a tv dealer but my guess is its died. It may not be economical to repair but you may be pleasantly surprised and its a small job. LG are usually pretty good so I'm surprised its gone at this age.

Unfortunately damage of this nature is not covered by the manufacturer warranty, however you may be lucky as it does not sound like the plasma panel fractured. Find your nearest LG auth service center and maybe they will find some plug or connector may have have been jarred loose. Good Luck
