If the tv has been shut down for more than 1 hour the filtering capacitors have discharged themselves naturally. When you start the tv the capacitors must be recharged to their operating voltage and this requires a lot of current. If the capacitors have aged (and 3 years is actually a lot for the capacitors manufactured in the last 10 years) the required current is very high so the current raises so much that the protection system gets activated before the capacitors can recharge fully so the tv gets shut down. When you start the tv again the capacitors are already partially charged so the current isn't that high = the protection system isn't activated = the tv starts normally.
All of this is the first sign that the capacitors are about to die of old age - you're lucky, you have warning signs.Replace them now - it will cost you less than $150 including the labor of a repairman. If you wait till one of them fail for good the damage it will do will be way more expensive to fix.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

LG 50PC5D-UL Plasma TV.... While playing XBox360 the screen just shrunk to the top 3" as though some one was holding a towel over the bottom portion of the screen. I have unplugged all inputs and the unit. I have let it cool down. Still it remains in this condition. I can't see the menu because it's in the portion of the screen that is "blacked out". What do I do?
