I have tried to find parts for televisions but they will not sell parts or even let me look up parts prices for consumers.You have to be an authorized repair center just to access parts lookup.Also,I know from experience that repair centers have a minimum of 20% parts markup.Call a couple shops and describe your problem and they should be able to give you a ballpark figure of repair because they most likely know what is wrong.If they want to come to your house,make sure it is a FREE visit,otherwise hang up and call another place.Once you get an estimate,you can determine which way is the better route to go.Here is a link about plasma vs. LCD.Good luck!It also may give you an idea as to what is wrong.There is alot of good information on the link.

What is causing PZ550 Plasma TV to display a frozen image with bars, and then a black screen after restarting the TV? Sounds and TV functions work.


Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Lg 50pc55 plasma- has sound but no display??


Quite possible-----replace all bad ones and also if possible the voltages coming out of that board need to be tested---to be honest other than the caps it sounds like a main board issue. The set may have been run too long with the bad caps.

LG 50PG20 Plasma,, nothing shows on screen its all black


This model was known for issues with the Y-sustain, Y-drives, and the Z-sustain boards. These boards help process the picture image to the screen.

When one or more of these boards fail, the screen stays black, and you only have audio & on/off.

You could call LG and try to get your TV repaired at a discount if you can convince LG to honor this known issue.

Another issue could be the actual panel has gone bad. The plasma panel in your TV has a two warranty and LG would fix that for free. Well…it would be free as long as it’s not past two years of your date of purchase.

What zip code are you in?

50" LG Plasma TV has no picture just scattered pixels across the screen


HI,
This sounds like an issue that would be covered under the manufacturer warranty. please get a hold of the manufacturer for service. Thsi particular model has a 2 year, parts and labor, limited warranty. This might save you some money. Here is the website for LG service:
http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp
When you call, you should have your serial number and model number ready.
Hope this was helpful
Have a great day!

Unfortunately damage of this nature is not covered by the manufacturer warranty, however you may be lucky as it does not sound like the plasma panel fractured. Find your nearest LG auth service center and maybe they will find some plug or connector may have have been jarred loose. Good Luck

call 877-543-8325 this is an LG Executive call center and they will fix this for free. I have a 50" plasma I bought january 2006 which is out of warranty by 5 months. They faxed me and the LG repair shop a 30 day warranty for my tv to cover the repair. Just tell them you heard a pop and in my case the picture is distorted. All they need is the model number and serial number and they should take care of it. No arguing needed.

LG PLASMA TV WITH COLOURED LINES OVER SCREEN


If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.
