Question about LG 60PA5500
Heard loud pop TV went dark just clicks when hit power button
Our LG 50" plasma tv screen went black after a popping noise but still had sound, after great diliberations decided to take the back off and have a peek!
We unplugged the tv and tested the fuses (there were three we could see) one had blown, the one on the left as you look at the back of the tv it also has one above it. We wrote the code/seriel number down and took the fuse to the electrical wholesalers Maplin and bought a pack of 10 fuses for £1.29 replaced the fuse in the tv and everything now fine!!!!!!
Hope this might be of use to anyone whose lost the picture after a loud popping/snacking noise but still has sound.

Hi , I recently had the same problem which I was determined to fix . So I did a few weeks of research to find that it was the Y SUS board which burns out. I'm sure you realized that the TV gets hot. Personally I think this is why. circuit boards don't like heat and I've learned that the cooling fans are a joke. I replaced the board and got my picture back. I proved the fan theory because after the screen started to act up. I placed a cooling fan near the vent holes on top and the problem cleared right up,It also helps if you lower the brightness which helps out on the heat situation.I will soon be adding a fan with a temp. sensor. This shoud help if your screen has lines when you initially turn the cool TV on.then I have Some other costless solutions. Hope this helped these are great TV's and like our cars we maintain them not throw them away..................................Mr Wiseman

i just had the same problem. after talking to many tv repair people i finally got a knowledgeable person to help me. i ordered the part and fixed it myself.
it was very easy. i have an LG model# 50px1d. so if you had this problem i suggest you order the part yourself and fix it. i got an estimate for repair and it wouldv'e cost me at least $500 parts and labor. i paid $230 for the part. so you can see i saved a little more than half. the part you need is the " Z SUS " ASSEMBLY. you can order the part from LG website. the part # is 6871QZH044C.
let's just say after doing everything myself, i am watching TV right now.
by the way LG would not help me at all. spread the word that LG is not a good product.

I know you already replaced the board, this is for future searchers. If you heard a popping sound, then the picture went out, there is a 32 pin Sanyo module that goes bad on the board. That's probably what caused the fuse to blow. Replace the module, then replace the fuse. The module is less than half the cost of a used board. Since this was a popular model TV, there are lots of replacement boards on the used market.
