Question about LG 47LG70 42 in. LCD TV
I am sorry to hear regarding the problem. To begin with, this is an internal failure and unplugging would not resolve the problem. It has to be repaired. As the unit is less than 2 years old, repair makes sense - if the cost of repair is less than half the cost of the TV.It would be really tough to speculate whether this is a problem with the inverter or with any of the electronic circuitry. I agree that these products are not made in the same way as it used to be and i have seen many products being failed within 18 months. This is why i usually prefer extended warranties on these sets.
The ball is in your court.As you cannot open the TV and repair or test the components, it would be hard to determine the exact fault.However, this is an internal failure.
Looking at the cost of the TV and other stuff, i would prefer you to get this unit repaired. However, if you wish you could also go in for a replacement.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

At first the problem sounds like it could be the main printed circuit board, but is odd, because the audio outputs come from the main printed circuit board. Does the TV have the audio output running from the unit? Is the main question.
What I would suggest is, depending on how old the unit is, for instance, if it is only a few months out of warranty, contact LG and they may offer a once off 'Parts Only' or 'Labour Only' warranty for this problem as a gesture of good will.
The unit is getting power, we can tell because the audio still works through the surround sound, so the power supply printed circuit board is ok.
The main printed circuit board, the one with all the outputs and and inputs, seems to be working as it still delivers sound to the surround sound system.
It may be the LCD panel, the logic printed circuit board, a small printed circuit board attatched to the LCD panel or in a less likely case (or not) a component on the main printed circuit board.
I suggest if you are tech savvy and have access to a multimeter or a voltameter, you can remove the back of the unit and test the voltages running from the power supply printed circuit board to the main printed circuit board and from the main printed circuit board to the logic board and also to the voltages leading from and to the LCD panel.
Also keep and eye out for any blown capacitors, the look like a battery with the top bulging out when faulty as they are a common cause of certain issues becoming faulty and other issues still functioning properly.
I hope this helps, good luck.
