Question about LG RU-42PX10 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

4 Answers

LG RT-42PX10 I have the LG Plasma model: RT-42PX10 4 years now, all worked perfect till recently I connected the DVI cable from my Mac to watch a movie (cable supplied by LG when bought the TV). I think almost immediately a Vertical black line, thicker than an inch, appeared on the third right (when u look in front). after disconnecting my PowerBook laptop line is still there (Mac is perfectly ok) Summary: Black line appears from time to time with no special timing or reason in Component or AV mode Only way to remove it is playing randomly with the tuner (that I don't care about it as  have cable tv) so once you are lucky... boom line s gone but could be for 5 sec or 5 mnt longest is about 30 mnts. Any ideas, is it the tuner board or....

    I too have the LG RT 42PX10 plasma. Have had it 4 years without any issues. Recently the picture has become blurred and distorted. Sometimes it goes away, like when watching sport but then it's back for the most part. My wife has just called to say she was watching it today and a bang noise came from the back of it. It still works, but the picture is no 'greyed out'. Is it totalled?

    I also have the same problem with my LG plasma. That is a black band about 25mm wide running down the full height of the screen. Has there been a fix posted yet, if so is it possable to have it sent to me. Barry

My LG 60PH6700 plasma TV recently started acting up. Red power light but no sound, no picture. I've replaced the YSUS and Y buffers and the symptom persists. Any other ideas on this? Many thanks.

You read the manual and it will tell you, except in your case it won't as it is not a Smart TV with internet capability. It is a plain and simple television.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

Mine died after a brown out. It turned out to be the main board. They're pretty hard to find.
