TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi THanks for your quick reply. The TV power on the TV went out in the middle of the day, there was no power surge or storm it just stopped working which caused us to need to replace it. My husband tested the fuses, etc, and what we found was we needed a new power supply board.
We have not tried reprogramming the remote. I would need to look for our instruction manual on how to do that as it's been 5 years since we purchased the TV. Regardless though shouldn't the TV turn on/off directly at the console even if the remote is not programmed? There is no light on the on/off switch on the TV, it typically lights up blue when the TV is on. HOW DO WE FIX THIS?
We have not tried disconnecting the controller board we do not know what that is. Can you describe it for me an we can try that.
Ok thanks Aric. We will try this and get back to you.
It is clearly the controller board. The original TV remote is still programmed but not working. WE tried to reprogram the cable remote to see if that would work to turn TV off but it won't program.
Do you have any sense how much it would cost to replace a controller board for an LG Plasma 50inch TV, 50PG60-UA?
Thanks we were able to find the problem. We followed the wire for the IR sensor back and found out where it was disconnected!! We have connected it now and all is working good as new. Thanks for your patience and help! All the best, XXXXX XXXXX Robert.
