Question about LG 42PC3D 42 in. Plasma Television
I have a 42" LG model: 42PC3D, there is sound, but no picture at all. We were watching TV and the picture went off, all we had was sound. Please help!
Follow-up to warranty call - LG 42PC3d - was two months past warranty, but LG agreed to fix the 'sound, but no picture' problem under the warranty. Service dude was out within a week to replace the Z SUS(?) board - no cost to me. Works fine now. This must be a typical problem on LG plasma's using this board - perhaps a bad part from their vendor at time of manufacture. I have been really happy with this LG plasma -- great picture at a good price, and I have to say I am impressed that LG took care of the problem, even though technically they were not required too. One reason I decided on the LG initially was the better warranty from LG - two years - and it looks like my judgment call on this paid off. If I get two more years out of it, and it goes bad again, oh well -- it will be time for dude to buy another TV with new and improved features by then anyway. Thank you LG. Good luck to the rest of you dudes.

We had the same problem with a Sanyo plasma tv that we've had for about 20 months. With some direction from another board we were able to remove the back and change 3 fuses (http://www.highdefforum.com/flat-panel-tvs/46352-sanyo-vizon-wont-power-up-all-sudden.html )
it is working for the time being....though the picture seems to have shifted slightly to the left. The repair company was going to replace something that would have cost us upwards of $300....for about $6 we were able to, at least temporarily, take care of it.

I have the same problem. I bought mine in November of 2006, so I'm still within the 2 year warranty.

One of the SUS panels will be defect.On these panels you will find several fuses,the panel with the broken fuse must be replaced.
Sus panels are the panels with the big cooling blocks.
