I wish I had an answer for you but I'm in the same boat. I've got a 42pc5d and it's doing the same thing. I'll turn it on using either the remote or the power button on the unit itself. The LED will blink either two or three times, then shut itself off. I tried plugging the unit into a different outlet. I tried unhooking all inputs (PS3, DVD player, antenna, etc). The tv was still shutting itself off. I called tech support and the lady who answered asked me if there was a power button on the unit. Well, of course I understand LG has hundreds of models but I felt like I was dealing with someone who didn't care enough to even open the manual to see for herself. Anyway, after a "reset", the TV is now nothing more than a very expensive paperweight. To say I'm displeased is an understatement.

    I've got an LG 42PC5D. When I turn it on, the green LED will flash either 2 or 3 times then shut itself off. I unplugged all signal sources. I unplugged the tv and did a "reset". I plugged it into a different outlet. Nothing fixed the problem. I called LG customer support. The lady I spoke with didn't even know if there was a power button on the front of the TV. My girlfriend won the TV from her employer in May 2008. It's six months old but because it was won in a contest, we have no reciept. Anyone have any ideas what I can do?
