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,

In what way is the screen broken? cracked, distorted picture, no picture but has sound?

If it is cracked. Replacement of screen is expensive. Cheaper to buy a new TV.
If Distorted. Parts linked to the screen can be the culprit. Most common part to fail is the T-con board. Main board may not be sending signal to the T-con board.
If its no picture but has sound. Back lighting has failed which could be several things that can cause that.

without any other details besides "broken" it will be hard for someone to help with diagnosing your problem. We need symptoms like. has sound but no picture. Picture has horizontal or vertical lines. part or half of the screen is black, black borders don't count. Hope the info here has, in some way, helped bring you closer to what to do with your TV.

I have two problems: 1. several chanels will not come in very well - the have lines, distortion, picture is in "squares", no sound. Sometimes it is an acceptable picture but is is on for 1-2...


The description of "picture is in squares" is typical of poor signal conditions. It is called "blocking". The screen is made up of blocks of bits of the picture and is reassembled by the uProcessing inside the digital set. Clever really!
If you get your signal sorted out you will find that the processor will have more time to do as you request with menus and channel sorting.
Hope that helps.
