Most LCD faults are of two types:
1 Dead (Psu faults)
2 Display Panel Faults

Some have external power units, the ones with a 4pin plug are usually the fault even if they measure +12v coming out, test by substitution
The Psu are Just like any Psu using SMPS(chopper), so use normal PSU fault finding echniques
Start with , Any power from secondary of chopper transformer, at the diodes) usual PSU voltages are 5v,3.3v 12v (the 12v feeds the CCF tubes power generators)
If yes the psu ok, If no check for 320v across mains smoothing capacitor If 320v ok but no output, check for shorts on the output lines (schottly diodes)

    If the PSU is running and there are any leds glowing on the front
    check to see it the flurecent tubes (on each side) are glowing
    they usually have their own supply generators powered by 12v from PSU

    2 Display Panel faults

    All faults that are within the panel aren't repairable (Specialist repairs are possible , But the COST)

If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
Figure 1: Example of the reset button labeling on the LC2600N

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

No picture, no sound, but TV will power up


Average life on all brands and models is 3 to 5 years. Average repair on this size and type of set varies but is usually from 150 to 250 parts and labor. I see very few sets of this type (any brand) that are more than 6 years old.

The bulk of sets in our shop (over a hundred sets on average) that have failed are under 2 years of age.

dds426's reply:

The problem was not a cable connection. A chip needed to be replaced at the tune of over $600j (includes $200 for the repairmen coming to my home to dismantle and take to the shop and return it).

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.
