LG 50PY2R just made a big BANG !


Established Member
Had this Plasma for just over 3 years , was watching it just now and it made a big bang and now lost its picture.

Turns on, can hear audio, but no pic, and also getting a clicking/circuit shortin sound.

Is there any known repair centres in the west midlands area that any of you know of?

Is it worth getting it repaired?

OK, just to update...

Switched TV on, picture appears but its all weird, lines running every where.

Sounds appears to be working, but is also making a lot of crackles.

I have had a word with LG and they state it sounds like a PSU/PSB problem.

Power Supply Unit / Power Supply Board.

Quoted me £150 just to come and pick it up and take it back for investigation

I have opened the back casing for the tv, can see these boards, but not sure which one i should be looking at ?
