hi there, have the same kind of problem twice so far after was bought for me as x-mas present (although my viera isnt plasma, its an LCD TX-32LMD70A)..
I Pulled out the mains plug for about 10-20 seconds and then plugged back in (power button at top was pushed in, in the on position, so when the power was on, the tv just goes straight on). It then worked.
i would however like to know why this happens ( i really hope this isnt a hardware problem, as like many others... its only months old!!)
hope this helps

SOURCE: My 42"LG 50 TV will not turn on
One important step to see if you are having an internal problem is to perform a power drain.
1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board. 3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on.
If this does not work but you are still seeing a LED lit up, there is probably a problem between the TV's power supply and the mainboard and service maybe required.

Did you have any luck? My LG is stuck in demo mode too. Menu button doesn't work, and keylock was on as default so I can't use the buttons on the TV itself.

Found that TV started switching off by itself. Would try to come on..green light blinked for 2-3 seconds, tv came on (with picture and sound) for 1 or 2 seconds and then it would turn itself off. Found that the issue is with one channel only. If you are facing this issue....try quickly changing the channel the moment it comes on. You can do it either with remote or with the TV buttons directly. also in the same logic, if this is still happening, try changing the source to another (rgb-pc, av1, av2 etc). Basically change it from whatever input it is on currently, if changing the channels does not work. My symptom was that the tv made a loud 'TIK' 'TAK' sound which is louder than normal.
