Hey listen. Not too long ago I posted looking for help. I run a club -the facility side of it- and 3 of our 42px3dcv Lg's went bad in a 1 year period. I saved these hoping to find parts or cheap fixes one day, and it's paid off. I found Donberg Electronics -out of Ireland- and they had the parts for a really cheap price. You are probably not going to believe the price when you inquire. Veronika and Annette at Donberg are very nice and helpful. Going back to the problem, yes I am affraid you need to replace y sus, z sus and ctrl board. For that there is a repair kit you can buy where I just told you. If you are going to do it yourself it's relatively hard, as you have to memorize how the parts were originally installed, exactly. I would recommend having a buddy film the whole thing, seriously. You also have to maneuver a lot, between the cables and be extremely careful with wire connectors. Once you have completed the swap -all 3 boards- then you can plug back the TV and you will have your LG plasma back at work! I am not a technician but I have to tell you I run 3 different health clubs and have done everything from scrubbing showers to paint walls to install computer software and hardware -obviously tv repairs as well- So yeah, it isn't easy but it's worth trying. DO NOT MESS WITH ANYTHING IN THE BOARDS!! I MEAN IT!! Good luck and post a note if you think this was helpful. I am certain it is though. LOL. I've done it 3 times.

Loud Pop and the Screen went dead on a LG 42PX3DCV plasma TV. 5 years old so out of warrenty. I took the back off the tv and checked all the ceramic resistors and the resister on the Y-SUS board has...


Hi
A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helpout in solving the problem....

LG plasma tv picture moves frame by frame horizontally


If the TV is still under warranty, I would begin there. The bad thing about a plasma TV is that they cannot be fixed. I would watch it as long as I could stand it. When you buy a new one, be sure that you a LCD HDTV or a projection. Sorry.

LG Plasma TV has speakers fizzing in short bursts, cant hear any audio


Yes I believe you have a hardware failure in your audio amp IC. In some cases, a speaker will cause all the audio to distort, but its very rare for a speaker to cause this issue. If you just got it, you can return for a quick resolution, or contact a local repair center for a new main board replacement.

Pixel misfiring (diffusion errors) are caused when the tv is not firing and erasing the pixels correctly. It can be caused by a number of things, usually a voltage or waveform is off somewhere. If you just bought the tv, return it and get another. If you are out of warrany, you can remove the back panel and run the tv to check the voltages. Don't touch the heatsinks! they're electrically hot and will zap you.. the voltages are labeled on the back of the plasma panel with a sticker. first check Vs and Va. sometimes you can check -Vy, Vset, Vscan and others if labeled on the board. If you have to adjust waveforms you need a very $$ o-scope and should get qualified technician to adjust. If a board is bad, its likely your power supply or Y-sustain pcb, and less likely your Z-sustain or contol (logic) board.
