Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Picture dissappearing after 2 minutes or so.

Not strictly a 42px5d (my set is a 42pxr4-za) essentially the same set with a few less features and some cosmetic changes-but anyone have any idea why after switching on the picture will flicker then dissapear altogether after a couple of minutes. turning off the set and re-booting it the picture returns for for seconds only-audio etc are all fine. although i beleive it to be coincidence it only started doing it when connected to the HDMI output stage of an AV amp-all ideas would be gratefully received-the set is 13 months old.

Try another HDMI source and swap cables; see if that's it. The other fix is to repair the HDMI input amp/buffer on the set...accordianman

My lg plasma tv has sudenly when i put it on crackles and sound goes i switch it off and leave it for a few minutes and the sound comes back on

Rice Crispies? We hope not. You may also want to check your connections for security. Switch out your audio cable (s) to rule that out. If that does not correct the issue and your settings are standard, you may need service. ^CL

Here is the link you may visit for service assistance:

Check your APN settings

different locations you go sometimes have dead spots so less signal wont send mms. you can also connect to your home/public wifi to send mms,

My LG 42Px5D Plasma; when I turn it on, it is blinking for a couple of minutes, then it is normal again. It started happening only a couple of months ago. What's wrong? Thanks

THERE WILL BE A CAPACITOR GONE FAULTY IN THE POWER SUPPLY,,

IF U OPEN UP THE BACK LOOK ON THE TOP OF THE CYLINDER TYPE CAPACITORS THAT STAND UP THE ALLOY ON TOP SHOULD BE FLAT ON THEM ALL ... IF ONE IS BULGING AND TOP HAS BURST OR READY 2 BUST THEN REPLACE WITH A SOLDER IRON,, THIS WILL FIX THE SLOW START UP AS THE CAPS NEEDING TO GET WARM TO FIRE UP THE PSU,,

I can not add friends in Facebook..plez help me... *if i click add as friend then message appear like this.... "You have been blocked from adding friends because you repeatedly misused this feature. This...

Facebook has strict settings regarding the "mass add" emails people send out. If you add large numbers of friends (over 50 in a day) you will get this warning, and won't be able to add any more friends until tomorrow. If you haven't added that many friends today, this block should go away in a few hours, but you will have to enter a code word each time you add a friend. If you consistently get this block too many times, Facebook will actually suspend your account for a month or more. My suggestion is just to limit your friend requests to less than 50 each day (I would even try for less than 20 since you have been flagged already) and wait until tomorrow to add more friends. You can still accept as many as you want with no penalty.
Hope that helps and Good luck. :)

Lg plasma flatscreen

Hi,
The boards responsible for sending signals to your plasma screen has gone bad. Technically speaking, the Y SUS, Z SUS and the Y Buffers are suspect. Sometimes, owners heard a popping sound then the display will go away leaving only sound. It's an expensive repair that can go upwards of $500. Fortunately, LG typically has two (2) years parts and labor warranty for their big screen TVs. LG has a strict repair turn-around time so call it in and you'll have your TV fixed in no time... (realistically, 5-7 days). Best Regards

Bell South 2250 one seems to be voice activated and other not voice activated.

To turn off sound activation press the menu button 3 times to enter VOX mode. The VOX icon should be flashing, then press the down button till the number of bars dissappear. Press the menu button to confirm the VOX off mode. You also can adjust the sensitivity of the VOX mode by how many bars are displayed, less bars equal less sensitivity. No bars and voice command is deactivated. Hope this helps.
