Wont turn on

Unplug the power cord, wait a few minutes then plug it back in and check for a loose connection where the cord attaches to the TV. If it won't turn on after that, it's time to use the warranty.

All of a sudden my LG 42LB5DC television was slow to turn on and then one day it wouldn't turn on at all.

There is a problem with the power supply of your tv. Try to remove the back cover of your tv then observe if there is a bulge up or leaky capacitor. The bulge up is that the top of the capacitor is not perfectly flat like the others and the leaky capacitor has a wet mark in the bottom of the capacitor. This capacitor causes your power supply to malfuntion because it cannot transfer dc output properly to other parts of your tv. It produces unfiltered dc output try to replace this capacitor but observe the proper position because it has a polarity. Note be sure to unplug the unit before you remove the back cover. Good day and best regards.

No picture sound only

Very likely that one or more of the 3300μF (10v) capacitors in your power supply have failed and require replacement. If you're proficient with a soldering iron and other tools, it should be an easy fix -- less then $10.

I had this exact same problem recently (no video, only sound), and when it was happening, initially turning the unit off and back on resolved it. This subsequently (within a few days) developed into a problem where the TV wouldn't turn on at all (try to turn on and LED would turn green and relay would click, but a second later the LED would turn back red and another click would be heard). It would require 50-75 "power-on" attempts before the TV would stay on, and even if it did, sometimes there was no video. Finally (a few days after that), my wife heard a "pop" (she called it a mini-explosion) while the TV was on, and then she lost video/audio altogether. The TV wouldn't power on at all anymore -- it became stuck in a cycle where the relay would just click on and off until unplugged.

All of these could be traced back to some blown capacitors in the power supply module. On my 50PC5D, there were 6 caps, all 3300μF, 10V, 105°C. Five were clustered together, and one was on its own, but all 6 had split open at the top and leaked out electrolytic solution (fortunately due to location/orientation, no damage resulted within surrounding components). I replaced all 6, and now the TV is working like new again.

New capacitors at a local electronics supplier were about $1 apiece, so it was slightly more than $6 to replace them all. I would definitely recommend inspecting all caps in the power supply (there aren't that many... maybe a dozen or so)... if they're bulging even slightly, just replace them while everything is opened up.

I don't recommend buying a "repair kit" from eBay or the likes, since many of these contain insufficient parts and tend to be over-priced (e.g. I ordered a "kit" for my specific board for $25+S/H that included 4 caps, 2 FETs, and a fuse, but it would not have been sufficient by itself (needed 6 caps), plus the FETs and fuse were fine; in my case the TV died completely before the kit arrived in the mail, so I went about sourcing the parts locally). I thought I was taking the easy way by pre-ordering parts while the TV was still semi-working, since the TV was wall-mounted and I didn't want to take it down; however, I wish I had just pulled it and identified the parts needing replacement.

Good luck!
