Question about LG DU-42PX12XC 42 in. Plasma HDTV

3 Answers

NO Picture It started with distorted picture and now it has no picture, but does have sound Please help Same problem as decribed. Sometimes it is just fine, sometimes it flashes odd colours, sometimes it is blank. Changes between these states randomly: no apparent relationship to program, mechanical tapping of frame or connectors. Sound is always OK. Same symptoms on all sources: direct cable, digital cable, VCR.

Is there anything that you did that may have started this?

It sounds like you just have a lose cable somewhere in the tv probably some plug that is just a little loose. Since the picture can be fine then I don't think this is going to be a hard fix. If you are good with electronics and know what you are doing, then please check all connections inside the tv since it seems like no matter what you use you still have this problem. Basically follow you video inputs from one end to the other and I'd bet you find a loose cable or joint that needs to be fixed.

Thank you for using Fixya and please feel free to ask me anything else that you want to know about this and remember to be careful when working on electronics.

Have a good day!

Hi,

You will have to get it serviced by a tech or just replace it if it is still under warranty.

You can try a hard reset by unpluging your TV for 30min and then plug it back and see if that helps.

Goodluck,

There is a humming in back of tv.the sound always good but picture doesnt come thru and i get a green screen someetimes blurry with distortion.color wheel or dmd chip or lamp starting to go out


as my experience, the most possible reason should be the color wheel or its photo sensor board.

firstly try to clean its photo sensor board, or have to replace a new wheel.

i just have this wheel, when you need to replace it, contact me freely

It is very difficult to know what you think is distorted, because it does not say what kind of distortion. I have to say sometimes people only give four words, so you are telling a lot.
But seeing one picture could say more than 1000 words.
You think you could post just one picture? or is it impossible to add pictures when you just start here in fixya? I can't remember.

Distorted/damaged pictures


Please check the image size (pixels x pixels) setting or the resolution (MP). Seems like the camera is shooting in low resolution. Have you used this memory card on a mobile phone or another camera? Format the memory card and try again.
