Question about LG RU-42PX10 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

My tv made a loud popping sound last night while watching a show. The tv got darker. I left it on for a few more minutes and there was another popping sound, like a light bulb breaking, and the TV got black. What do you think the problem could be? Is it fixable at home? I hope I dont have to take the TV to a repair place. Thanks for your help! JS

Yes the caps on theower supply, but you can check power supply board by smell an look for burnt parts it is common. May need more than one board if they are cheap get both.

Last night our TV made a loud popping noise then the picture went out. We still have sound but have trouble turning the TV off. What could this be and is it fixable? Thanks, Anne Marie Orcutt


Hi,
Question shows it is Vizio L32 lcd tv and symptom shows back light inverter board for defective for some reason and loud noise would be popping of any chip on inverter board.
Shopjimmy..com has replacement boards of that model on reasonable price and local tv repairman will replace defective board after checking/ testing the tv.
Hope these info will help.
Thanks.

Your set has a problem with its power supply. If it is under warranty, have it replaced ASAP. If your warranty has expired, you can take the set to any good repair shop - ask for an estimate before having any work done to it.

The loud pop was a capacitor blowing.

The light is flashing because either power board or ballast board is faulty.

Using the TV in this conditions can cause further damage.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

No picture, hear sound, television will shut off after a few seconds.


Lamp life is only a few thousand hours. Hopefully its only the lamp that made to noise. Don't turn on again until lamp is replaced.
