Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I understand the resolution on this plasma screen is 852x480. I live in South Africa and we are now moving over to HD television. I am wanting to purchase a HD decoder for TV viewing but before I do, I need to know if I will see a difference in the quality of the picture if I purchase and connect theHD decoder.
Thanks for your input

You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new plasma. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

I think you have a fault on the line output stage either dry solder joints or a fault with components on the line output stage or a faulty line output transformer. If you can check this for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

I have the same issue with my LG 42PC3DVA and I narrowed it down to the Y SUS board. After a little research there are a few items that are prone to go. The ceramic fuses (as you found), sometimes the capacitors on the Y SUS, Z SUS, and power supply go along with them You can tell because thy will be bulged at the top instead of flat. I replaced a few of my capacitors - they are only $0.89 each so it was MUCH cheaper than a board.
The other thing that is common on the Y SUS in particular are the FETs (also called MOSFET). They can be replaced if you are good with a soldering gun but they are static sensitive so be grounded. They are also a bit tricky to test so you may want to do some research on how to determine if this is the issue... or you can just replace the whole board.

You burnt out the backlit lamp. unfortunately there is no easy fix for this. If still underwarranty great, if not... it will cost more to fix it then buy a new tv probably.
