To determine what is causing our TV to lose it's picture you would have to do some basic troubleshooting. The areas of concern for that particular model with that issue would be the Power Board, the connectors to the board, fuses on the Y & Z Boards, and so on. Once you have run the tests to determine the parts that need to be replaced you would need to find out the availability of those parts in the area that you are from. The TV is of the age that the cost of repairing it may actually be more than the cost of purchasing a brand new set. Due to downturns in the economy sales of plasma, LCD, and led TV's is much slower than anticipated. This has brought the cost of the new units dramatically.

In closing, do your troubleshooting to identify the parts that need replacing and check their cost and availability. Compare to the local cost of a new TV and that should help you to decide which way to go.

Picture is fine for about an hour then goes fuzzy


Hello Townsend, It sounds like a problem called blooming, or you are having a problem with focus control which are signs of a problem in the horizontal and high voltage section of the tv in the case of plasma TV this would be the excitation circuit. I would suggest that you take the set to a TV repair shop to effect repairs.

Present your case to LG customer care ASAP. So close to out of warranty, they may at least cover parts. you will almost certainly in the first instance be referred to an authorised repairer.

Distorted picture and colors


The pop you heard was a component going bad. This could be as simple as a bad capacitor or something more complex. You don't indicate the age of the set. If under a year, it should be under warranty and I would recommend a warranty service call. If no longer covered, examine the boards for any sign of a "smoked" part and update this with the circuit designation. This is the number written on the board under or next to the part. For a capacitor, for example, the designation would likely be Cxxx.

Thanks,
Dan

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture


Our LG 50" plasma tv screen went black after a popping noise but still had sound, after great diliberations decided to take the back off and have a peek!
We unplugged the tv and tested the fuses (there were three we could see) one had blown, the one on the left as you look at the back of the tv it also has one above it. We wrote the code/seriel number down and took the fuse to the electrical wholesalers Maplin and bought a pack of 10 fuses for £1.29 replaced the fuse in the tv and everything now fine!!!!!!
Hope this might be of use to anyone whose lost the picture after a loud popping/snacking noise but still has sound.
