Question about LG RU-42PZ71 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

3 Answers

No picture but sound

Plasma is 2 years old. Turned it on today. Have sound on all channels, but no picture. Can't use menu solutions because the screen is black. HELP PLEASE. Too expensive to fix at this point, but hoping it's a programming problem.

    That's about all the help I got from the manufacture. They don't troubleshoot. They just state the obvious like."Check to see if it's plugged in". It's been unplugged all night. I even put it in another outlet without cable and I still have no picture. Thanks.

I believe this is an expensive part to fix. If you interested I might have someone that would purchase the plasma from you.

Panasonic plasma th-50px77u has sound but picture flickers and goes black after sometimes playing for short while but also black when turned on. is problem fixable simply or will need new tv?

Everything is fixable, but it is a 17 year old set, with old technology. In these days of Internet connectible, Smart televisions with 4K picture quality, you would notice a big difference. I would say you have had your moneys worth out of it. Its up to you, service centre, or a new one.

Panasonic TH-PX77U review - CNET.com

www.cnet.com > reviews > panasonic-viera-th-50px77u...
Apr 12, 2007 - Panasonic's internal menu system is intuitive enough, although we disliked the ease with which you can inadvertently erase your picture settings. With a native resolution of 1,366x768, the Panasonic TH-50PX77U matches the resolution of just about every available 50-inch plasma today.



Our Panasonic 50" TH 42PX75U

well it sounds like something fried inside the tv. In my experience, this sounds like your y-sustain board went bad. it could be your video board also. considering todays value of the 50" panasonic plasma, it will be cheaper to replace it, unless you are willing to spend around $300 to get it fix at a shop.
good luck

I turn on my 50PF9956 get sound but no picture. For 2 weeks before it started taking longer to get the picture. I tried the menu with nothing

The plasma picture tube technology lasts only 24 months before it burns itself out, requiring a new
plasma picture tube. The LCD and LED technologies do not suffer from this short life span.
If your Philips 50PF9956 is over 2 years old, you've got all the use your plasma can give.
Fix: new plasma display - the electronics controlling the plasma display are most likely fine - just
like the electronics providing audio to the speakers. Your set's only problem is a burnt-out display.

LG plasma TV turned off, after the picture very light

I think you have a defective power board. the pop sound in coming from the board and giving you a low output voltage. do it yourself price about two hundred for parts.

Picture went out when I changed the cable channel

Check this forum thread:


Plasma-No picture

Main logic board $124 fixed mine email me [email protected]!!!


If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.

Vertical colored lines on screen-no picture

It's definitely possible. I'd have it checked by a repair center for something like this.
