LG update for historic reference:
Saturday came and service called to reschedule again because the part didn't arrive. Service guy #1 and service guy #3 arrived on Monday to replace the plasma panel. Total bill now is $1,983. The problem is still there and service guy now says he can't see it, but I do and so does my 9 yr old son. Service guy told LG on the phone that he doesn't see the problem anymore. I said why did you tell LG that you can't see it anymore? My son pointed out the flashing problem very clearly again. Service guy says "oh that problem yes I see it". Anyhow service says they have now replaced everything and this case will be turned over to an LG advocate and I will be called.

what your seeing is color shift. its a problem on this unit. but it only shows up on light colored scenes. maybe lg will release a firm ware upgrade to fix it. but for the price we paid, i dought they do anything about it.

I can define the flashing problem clearer now that I have studied it. I don't watch the set that much, so in the beginning I didn't notice right away. After watching a few dvd's I started seeing the flashing but thought it was because of the way the film was shot. Then I thought bad dvd. Then bad dvd player. Even though I could see it on almost every dvd I could not find it sufficient enough to show service. I thought the problem might be related to contrast or brightness and if I played with all the settings I could accept a so-so picture if it removed the flashing. But no matter how I re-arranged the settings the flashing still occurred. Contrast, brightness, dynamic contrast, black level etc. settings had little effect on the flashing. That's when I started the first service call. Now after much practice I can show it easily. The dvd Wild Bill' is the best example. Near the beginning of the movie there is a scene showing a prairie like background while they display movie credits in white type. Every time the type appears the entire background gets darker until the type goes away then the background gets lighter. It doesn't have to be white type though this shows the problem best. Any movie scene that has someone turning their hands or face or moving a sheet of paper that is lighter than the background will cause the problem.

Try to return it now that you can show the problem: if your panel is like mine (ps8000, but I saw a report of a 50pk950 doing the same) after 1000-2000 hours of usage the flashing will disappear, albeit with very bad blacks, and you'll have no recourse then.

I haven't noticed any one posting one of these, an LG50PS30. I got mine from Costco for 8 and a half about 5-6 months ago and it's beautiful. Took me a couple of months to adjust from the look of my 42" LCD but now it's the "movie" TV

I was given an LG 42PC5D-UL Plasma that no longer worked. The TV is in great shape, but will not remain on. When i try to power it on, I hear a click on the power board and then the set powers back down. My question is, that I can buy a new power board, but there are at least two different part numbers for the power supply board that fits in the LG 42PC5D. I am unsure as to whether the chassis number makes a difference in the power supply board part number or if they all fit and work in the LG 42PC5D. Any help with this situation would be great. I would love to have a new 42" plasma up and running for under $100.

I'm about a day away from purchasing an LG 50PK540 but have a question that I haven't found an answer for yet.

When changing the channel, does the picture switch immediately or is there a noticeable (half second or so) lag where the screen goes blank first?

One of my friends has this TV and it has a lag, but they have it hooked up to rabbit ears so I think that might be the problem and not the TV itself.

Does anyone have this TV hooked up to cable and can help me out? A noticeable lag is probably a dealbreaker for me.

HI,

First post. I would like some help and advice.

I bought the above plasma LG42 PT 353. I live in the UK. I have an echo problem on the surround sound. I gather this sort of thing is not uncommon on big-screen setups and I have tried all I can to rectify it via the sound system.

I wonder if I can do something via the LG service menu - eg delay the LG sound a little.

The remote has "Home" instead of menu - which brings up the main menu. I have tried all sorts of combinations of presses but I cannot reach the Service Menu. Any ideas?

thanks

What are the differences between the 60PN6500, 60PA6500, 60PA6550? The model in Consumer Reports is the 60PA6500. The model on LG's web site is the 60PN6500. Is the PA6500 an older year model and the 60PA6550 just the Sam's version of the older model? Are there any technical differences? (Sorry if this has been covered, but I just started research on 50" plasmas to replace my dying 34" Sony CRT and the 60" LG looks to be the best deal with all competitors twice as much.)

I think the PN series is newer as I just swapped my 2 month old 60pa6500 for one due to a vertical blue line on the screen.

Based on your last post, I saw that you have owned both the PA6500 and PN6500.
Would you mind post some review/comparison b/w the two models on the new PN6500 owner thread that I just started?
Your feedback will be very much valuable and appreciated for the rest of us as you can speak for both models... Thanks.

I am in NewZealand, and had problems with LG care service in regard to my 50PA6500, it developed a black bulge from the side of the screen, not the pixels but just under the glas, like the glue they bond it with. after weeks of messing around and no replies, i made a comment on the terrible service on their NZ facebook page. the NEXT day, i got a call from the service maneger saying i was getting the new 2013 50PN6500 as a replacement, and an apoligie.
