When you remove the back of the set. You will fined a couple of caps on the power supply board that are bulged and they need to be replaced, or you can buy a new power supply at www.partstore.com. If you want to just purchase the caps, you can get them at www.mcmelectronics.com
what does a 'leaky' part look like?
that is what causes the cold jionts and most of the time i clean board with alchahol then sometimes have to use magnifying glass to see very small rings around legs of the solder jionts still could be your problem
Mr. Gillette, It did not work, sadly. It stayed on for about 15 minutes then I heard a loud "pop" then it shut off again. It went back to shutting off then back on and with the longer delay between cycling and was staying off for longer periods of time then it would click back on then shut off immediatley not giving it enought time to even show a picture. I unplugged it. That is the only problem I have expierenced with this LG Plasma TV. I would like to order the power board and install it myself, do you think that is the only part I need to order? I reside in Lake Villa , Illinois, 60047, are you aware of any local companies that sell parts? Melissa Meyer
