Check your owners manual and see if there is a way to format the hard drive. If so, format it and try it again.

If not, or if you can't get past the hdd error, check your owners manual and see what type of hard drive it takes. Go to your local computer store, buy one and install it in your TV. This SHOULD stop the error message, and allow you to format the new drive using your TV's menu structure. Again, check the owners manual for formatting instructions.

If you are an experimental type of person, you can install the tv hard drive in an external hard drive case, plug it into your computer and try to get it running.

Finally, if it turns out to be some kind of proprietary hard drive you may have to check with LG to purchase a replacement.

Have lg du-42py10x plasma powers up but no picture no sound dark screen with white dots


if you have checked the activity of the outlet and the status of the TV (turned on or off) you may want to get it check through an LG authorized repair center, the issue could be the switchboard that channels the video and audio.

The tv made a pop sound and now it wont turn on ans both green and red buttons are flashing ..please help


I had the same problem guys! This is what I did:

My T.V. wouldn't turn on. The standby light was flashing six times, then four, then seven...I called Sony and they told me to unplug it for a couple of minutes, then try it again...didn't work....BUT, I have found a solution:

Try unpluging your T.V. for 4 hours+, then turn it back on. Worked for me! It's called a "hard reset" by sony. I had my T.V. unplugged for the whole day though.

Lg plasma power problem picture screen work 42px3rvc


one board can cost 150 to 350 dollars (ONLY one and only the part plus labor) problem really frequent one board or two board often blows. About if you can, the service process is kind of hard to drop the tv from the wall unscrew like tons of screws and finally to find the short circuit, buy the part (s) and install it (em). Hope not adjustment needed after works (commonly YES) and Hope the board doesn't blow again because another problem was there before.
