The first thing to do is a system reset using the reset button on the front panel.
If that does not work, unplug the set and let it sit overnight.
If it still does not come up , then a call to a qualified service repair technician is needed

Hope that helps.........

    When power switch is bad it does not switch on at all, check also that power switch is not stuck on pressed position.
    If there is a fault the tv has an internal switch that shut down tv by itself.
    Remove also battery from remote, a faulty remote can cause same problem.

No power to tv


I would suspect bad capacitors on the power supply. They drain when left unplugged from the power source and then when power is restored the weakcapacitors cant recharge and the set wont power up.

PLASMA TVS DONT HAVE INVERTER CIRCUITS. YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A Y-SUSTAIN BOARD FAILURE. IT IS THE BOARD TO THE LEFT LOOKING FROM THE BACK. THE LARGE ALUMINUM HEAT SINK LOCATED ON THE BOARD AND THE PART SCREWED TO IT WILL BE THE DEFECTIVE PART.

Lg 42'' plasma 720p no picture


This is not good. Was your tv unplugged or just power button off when you left for vacation. PlasmaTvs are highly susceptible to damage from power surges caused by lighting. Leave unplugged for at least five minutes then plug back in and see if this helps.

TV won't turn on


When I try to turn the tv on, the green light flashes and eventually goes back to red. A very faint picture came across the tv a few times but didn't stay. The tv is only 3.5 years old.
