    Thanks. Had a knowledgeable repairman look at the TV - he demonstrated that 1 of the 5 "panels" was the problem and needs replacement. Estimated cost $600. This 2 months after the 2 yr warranty expired! I wonder of this is a systemic problem with LG 50" plasma TVs.

    just now i got the same problem

    I had 2 pops on my LG 50" PD TV then it turned black. The TV is slightly more than one year old. My TV was assembled in Mexico with LG Canada label. I think we may have the same defective products. I went to a repair shop and they told it will cost $900 to repair a 50" TV. We may file this problem to LG together.

    I just had the same thing happen today to my LG 50PX4DR 50 in. Plasma TV/DVR Combo 2yrs and 1 and a half months after purchase. Sounds like this product might need a recall for their faulty product. $600 huh. A half hour into turning the tv on I heard a loud pop and immediately after my screen went black. I have not been able to turn it on since then. I am glad I payed $3400 for this to turn around and pay another $600 two years later to be able to still use it. Come on LG. This was the first product I purchased with your name brand and very well might be the last. Up to this point I haven't had many issues with the tv. To find out this is a common problem at around the same time frame is strange. Why wouldn't this problem be addressed by LG?

    Same thing happened to me. My warranty is still in effect since I am 2 weeks shy of it expiring. LG is sending tech tomorrow.

Well, I think we have a "lemion" LG 50" plastma, we need a group action to let public know that may get the attention from LG to have the product recalled.

Why do we have to bring to it the repair shop to have it fixd?

I bought my on 3/24/07 and it went out of order on 4/12/08, It costed $2,890. Should I invest another $6-900 to use it for another year and facing the same problem again.

Loud noise then lose picture


The green power LED probably is merely indicating that power is getting to your TV but the internal power supply is failing as evidenced by the loud "pop".

Heard a pop. Checked and had to replace the lamp. Now when turned on the power-standby flashes green, then flashes red, but TV never comes on.


How many times red light flashing?
This is an error code and red flashing count indicates a particular problem in specific section of tv, please count how many times red light flashing after 3 seconds long pause and post here to suggest a solution.
Thanks.

Heard a loud pop and picture went out. Still have sound


Ur tv have burns capacitors,look for pop ups caps.

Tv plays sound but no picture or any signs of backlight


This sound is a capcitor pop and this could be in the power supply unit itself. The glass could be a fuse that took the brunt from the capcitor pop.

1. Unplug the unit and do not plug it in.
2. if its under warrenty take it in please!
3. if its not under warrenty and you know eletronics verify what cap popped and replace that and the fuse.
4. if you do not know about eletronics this work would cost you around $150 for the wrok done.

Good luck I hope this information helps you!!

replace the sustainer boards should correct this problem. New sustainer boards may cause red and green pixilation. If this happen, replace control board and TV is as good as new.
