There is a thin wire that controls the input output of the power button on the board, and you may have a problem with it, best suggestion to offer you is to have it serviced by LG technicians.

I have a 10 year old Pioneer plasma TV (Pioneer PDP-R05E). When the TV is turned on, it starts with a black screen, and then some reddish dots flashing on the screen, mostly on the corners. After...


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.

4 year old 50PC1DRA LG Plasma tv. TV would come on after several tries, now will not turn on at all. Just clicks. From what I read here, could be power supple? Is a 4 year old TV worth putting that...


It's the capacitors on the power supply, it's a common problem, either buy a capacitor repair kit (yes they make them) and have a TV tech solder them on, or buy a new power supply board (about $200) and remove and replace it yourself (it's that easy)

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound


I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie

Magnavox 50" plasma Won't Power on/Shut's off/Blinking red LED


The above fix, listed by Tom saved us!! We did as instructed and took off the back of our 50 inch Magnavox plasma tv. We were not sure what we were looking for so we googled capacitator (image) & there was a photo of a fried capacitator! Sure enough we noticed ours were "fried", we took out the board and went to an electronic supply store, bought the 2 capacitators ($2.00 each!!) and then found someone who did tv repair to sauter the new capacitators onto the board. (It is important someone who know how to sauter and recognizes polarity do do this for you) All in all we fixed this following the above instructions for $34.00 and our time. For a month we were told to spend hundreds getting a new power board!
Kudos to you Tom & thanks so much!!

Toshiba 42hp83 plasma power supply problem?


I had the same problem. It turned out that one of the cooling fans get dusty and does not work. I opened the back of the Toshiba plasma TV and cleaned the failed fan, and it worked like a champ.
