Check connector between Logic & PSU 2nd pin from Left (Vs_ON) for DC volts.
If Voltage is 0 then problem is with Logic or SSB.
If Voltage is 3.1 VDC then problem is with PSU or other PCB's on Panel.
On startup Logic checks for errors and also polls the SSB for Errors. If Errors found then Logic will not send High to PSU.
To confirm if SSB or Logic is at fault then disconnect and remove SSB.
Use 2 Jumpers to short J8003 & J8004 on the left edge of the PSU
Use 1 Jumper to short CN2012 on the lower left part of the Logic PCB (White signal to the Display).
Plug in the AC to the PSU thru CN8001.
If PDP panel operates with White field screen then problem may be the SSB.

LG plasma 60pv250. Green after lightning hit house. Turns black when I press menu. Can I replace a board or should I replace TV?


Personally I would replace the TV. There is no telling how many electronic components have been damaged, due to the extremely high voltage that lightening produces.

10 years on a plasma is pretty good. If you are losing the plasma screen, then it will not be worth the time/cost to replace. LCD TV's have come down (and the new 4K format is here) considerably, are less energy hogs and last longer than the Plasma (this can be debated on longevity but LCD technology has been around a long time and is more prevelant than plasma). Time to upgrade.
it could either be the screen (my bet) or the controller board for the screen. Either way, the cost to truck a repairman out there, diagnose, order the part and return could exceed what a new format LCD will run you.

House struck by lightning and no picture in tv


I am so sorry but you should have claimed that on insurance. The amount of damage to all the solid state items in that set would mean that you are going to be replacing everything.

Plasma has no picture but sound works???


If the set was struck even a moderate blow anywhere near the screen you may have a bad plasma display panel---the diffused picture sounds like that.

Panasonic Plasma TH-42PZ80U HDMI do not work after lightning storm


I don't have a solution, unfortunately, but your problem is nearly identical to mine. It even seems to have happened on the same date (7/27/12)! Do you live near Dener by chance? Anyway, we have Direct Tv, and ended up with 2 fried HD DVR boxes and 2 TVs on which the HDMI connections don't work after lightning hit close to our house on 7/27. Those boxes were replaced, as was part of the Direct TV dish. The only difference is, whereas on one TV component connections (red/white/yellow cables) allowed the TV to work normally, on the other (my 50 inch Panasonic Plasma TCP50S30) even the red/white/yellow cables did not work. Now I'm scouting the net for tips on what else to try before I possibly have the Panasonic looked at, which I am hedging on doing since I got it for only $600 new in the first place. Have you found out anything else since you posted this? Good luck to you...

Hi there! If you have a decoder and this was plugged in on the panel it may have damaged the input board. Alternatively have the decoder checked first or try another TV on the same decoder. Lightning can hit the dish and run down through the line into the decoder and/or into the TV. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004
