Hello,

There is a problem with the power panel/pack of the television. It must have gotten burnt that is why your television is not coming up. If the green dot does not appear when you use a DVD player to watch a movie on the television, then the problem is not from the television, but if the green dot appears all the time, then it simply means there is a cold joint. Which means, there is melted lead from a panel in the tv.

But since it is under the warranty period, it will be best you take it back to the dealer that supplied it to you, because it is less than a year and it is giving faults,

All the best.

Take care and good luck

I have a 42" lg


It would seem as though the power supply. If the television is still under warranty I would contact LG to arrange for a servicing of the unit.

http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-warranty-claims.jsp
This is the website for LG's warranty support. Just follow the instructions on the page.


If your unit is not under warranty then you either must have a qualified LG technician come out to service the unit at your own expense or attempt to repair yourself which I would not recommend.

LG Plasma TV automatic turn off right after turn on


You have some dried out capacitors on the power supply. Samsung has a major issue with this right now and I made a tutorial for that repair in my Tips & Tricks. Your capacitors will not be the same, but identifying them and replacing them will be. Best advise I can give you: Stop using the TV and unplug it until you get it fixed. When these caps go bad, they draw down the voltage they are filtering. I've seen some TVs that had secondary damage because of this. I hope this was of some assistance, best wishes.

Hitachi plasma tv went snap and now there is no power


I realized that I bought a piece of junk. It will probably cost me as much to fix it as it did to buy it. Therefore I wont be buying another piece of junk plasma tv. I will buy a product that is warranteed for a reasonable time. My TV was a Hitachi but from what I read from other plasma tv owners, they are all the same. What kind of company sells products that last for a fraction of time in relation to the cost? How can we continue to purchase inferior products for outrageous money? Remember the old TVs, they lasted for years for a fraction of the price!!

LG PLASMA TV WITH COLOURED LINES OVER SCREEN


If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.
