It might be one of two things , it is either a buffer board that has gone or the ribbon cable going from the screen to the buffer board. If it is the buffer board it can be fixed by simply replacing the board with a new one, if its the ribbon cable from the screen then it cannot be repaired sorry.

SOURCE: LG 50PG20 Plasma,, nothing shows on screen its all black

This model was known for issues with the Y-sustain, Y-drives, and the Z-sustain boards. These boards help process the picture image to the screen.

When one or more of these boards fail, the screen stays black, and you only have audio & on/off.

You could call LG and try to get your TV repaired at a discount if you can convince LG to honor this known issue.

Another issue could be the actual panel has gone bad. The plasma panel in your TV has a two warranty and LG would fix that for free. Well…it would be free as long as it’s not past two years of your date of purchase.

What zip code are you in?

Picture Trouble


It sounds like a buffer board fault. If you wish to get more details, check http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ this link. It has screen shots to many faulty stages of plasma displays. Compare them to that of yours, and make sure about which board will have the fault. Pull up older posts by its left side bar.

I heard small pop then lost power while watching my lg 50pg20. No red or blue lights on the power switch. What could be wrong?


you are describing a power supply defect. IT may be as simple as the main fuse. I believe the one in this set is a 6.5 amp located on the ps board right by cord connection. IF after replacing the fuse opens a second time you will need to replace the power board.
