Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I have a 42in LG plasma tv, it has sound and no picture. What could be the problem? Give me an estimated cost of repair.
This could be one of two problems. I can't narrow it down any further without having the set in front of me.
1. The plasma panel or the componets which supply electricity to the plasma in the panel have packed up.
2. The video processing unit in the set has gone.
As for the cost of repair, if it's the panel, buy a new TV. It'll be cheaper. If it's the component that supplies the electricity to the plasma on the panel or the video processing unit, expect to pay between 300-400 as a conservative estimate for parts. Labour would be another 100-200.
Hope this helps

The culprit will usually be the lower y-sus video board which is a common problem with lg plasma sets.
easiest way of finding out is to get a competent person to remove the back panel-remove the board and power the set up-if it is this board the set will display the top half of the picture only-when replaced no picture will be displayed.
these boards can be obtained on e-bay for between 60 and 90 pounds and take minutes to fit.
estimated cost of a proffesional repair £400-600.
