Question about LG RU-42PX10 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Tedelex EC-PD2000 42" plasma TV

Our plasma TV is almost 2 years old. Last nite the screen changed to an almost 'watery' look with odd greenish patterns on the peoples faces. The sound is fine. I switched the TV off for a while and when I switched it on it looked normal but went funny again after about 10mins. I tried pushing the 's' button on the remote to reset to factory defauls settings but it made no difference (I thought my friend's child may have messed with the remote)
What is wrong with my TV and is it possible to fix it?

Yes, I had the same problem, it happened after 14 months of my purchase, or just 2 months after expiry date of warranty. But remember they have 60,000 hours warranty on screen and this fault is part of screen (no picture J it is screen problem), I called LG, first they did not accept the claim but soon after I mentioned that I have done many research and this is very common problem due to use of faulty part or unreliable design, and if they don't fix it on their cost I will take legal action, one of the supervisor contacted me and after saying LALALALALALALALALALA accepted to send someone to fix with no cost. But I have found out they did to many others whom take this mater serious so it was not just me alone J They are aware of using faulty part is some ranges of their products and now this common problem appears, LG don’t like it and wants to somehow get away. ((((((((((So don’t let it happen))))))))) some of us paid around $5000 to $7000 when this TV came out, recently price went down to around $2000. CALL THEM and ask FIX or COURT? For sure they fix it for you free of charge J Imagine how much would it cost them to recall all TVs which they know is faulty?
Enjoy

47" plasma 1080p ... screen went black , sound


Plasma TV's have a shelf life. By that I mean the screen is only good for so many hours depending on the model. Most likely, you have burnt out the screen and the set will need to be replaced. The good news is, plasma TV's used to be better than LCD but that is no longer the case. You can get a very high quality LCD TV for a very low price now. Also they use a fraction of the power and don't generate all of the heat of a plasma.I'm sure this is not what you wanted to hear but the reality is that ALL plasma TV's do this eventually, and it is something that most salesmen back in the day didn't bother to tell customers. If you have an extended warranty, you may be able to get it replaced.

Screen went black on my plasma tv


If the menu display isn't coming up either, then the odds are the power supply for the screen is the problem. Most manufactures call this a Backlight Inverter Board. Being that it's only 7 month old, it should still be under warranty by the manufacture. I would try to get it fixed by the warranty first if possible.

Sounds like (at minimum) you're going to need a new Y sus board. If you're lucky, you won't need the Z sus board, too. Many times they both go out at the same time.

Vertical colored lines on screen-no picture


It's definitely possible. I'd have it checked by a repair center for something like this.
