Bricked LG 42pj350, lg mode 1.6.10 on firmware 3.32

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
I flashed Firmware 3.32 (downloaded it from the official site) on my LG 42PJ350. After update I put lg mode lgmod_10610.epk. After that TV got reset, picture appeared for a moment and than the screen went dark. Now the TV is like dead, not responsing on the Remote Control. If i connect the power cabel it makes 2 times "klick - klick", red LED goes on for a moment and picture is just dark gray.
Tried to connect with serial cable rs232, did everything read on the forum, but nothing happend while I was pressing ESC, no boot mode. What is the problem? Is the u boot locked or am I doing something wrong… if it’s locked, is it possible to unlock it?

Try pressing MENU on the remote and MENU on the TV; hold the buttons for 10 seconds and see if a service menu appears.

So, in a dark room, does the screen glow?

Are you OK to take the cover off and do some tests -- The main board or control board are replaceable, and I think that one of those is causing the issue.

Yes, sreen glows in dark. I'm OK to take the cover off and do some tests
post #6 of 44
Yes, whilst the boards are probably physically OK, in my opinion, one has firmware corruption and perhaps the only way to fix this is to replace said board.

We checked the main board and control board with the multimeter, and them seems to be ok. What do you think, which one I have to replace? Is there anything else I can do before replacement?

How did you "check the board with a multimeter"?

My father did it, has experience with older TVs...

There's very little you can check with a multimeter on a modern main board. In the middle of the set there is a green board marked CTRL or similar. Can we have a picture of that? There's a jumper connection you can make which will tell you if the fault is in the main or control board. I'm leaning to the main board at the moment due to the screen glow.

OK, see the points marked EXT AUTO GEN? Two holes... Place a 100 ohm to 470 ohm resistor between them (any value from 100 ohms to 470 ohms is OK.)

Unplug the connector which goes between this board and the main board (which has HDMI, SCART, tuner on it.)

Turn the TV on. Do test patterns appear?

I have the same problem with the same TV an LG 42PJ350

Where do you buy the main board?
Cost?

There is another cheap option to solve the problem?

THANK YOU from Spain

Did you locate the test pattern jumper and see if you got test patterns first?
Main board replacements can be found on eBay, and on other sites such as ShopJimmy.

There are two points marked EXT AUTO GEN on the control board. Simply take a piece of wire and bridge them together. Then, disconnect the cable between the main board and control board and power on the set.

The replacement you linked to looks suitable.

These are two holes, I connected them without power supply, after I take off the wire between the main board and the control board, but nothing happens.
Are you shure we must connected them without the power supply?

Thank you for everything
post #23 of 44
Sorry, where are you disconnecting the power supply?

The only cable that should be disconnected is the one between the main board and control board. That's just one cable. All others should be left in place.

Then after placing the jumper, the TV should be powered on.

Hello, thank you for your patience.

1.- With the power supply on, I put the wire between the two holes

2.- I disconnect the cable between the main and the control board

3.- tried to power on the TV pressing POWER ON in the remote control and in the TV at the same time, and hold on for 10 seconds, nothing happens

4.- tried to power on the TV pressing OK in the remote control and in the TV at the same time, and hold on for 10 seconds,nothing happens

5.- tried to power on the TV pressing MENU in the remote control and in the TV at the same time, and hold on for 10 seconds,nothing happens

6 connect the cable between the main and the control board and repeat, 3, 4 and 5, and also nothing happens, the TV NEVER has the led on, or/and the screen on

nothing happens, my TV continues sleeping, a deep sleep

Thank you for everything

Ah, so with the power plugged in, do you have any standby indicator at all?
post #26 of 44
No, nothing

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but i do the procedure 3 times....and with the same results...

Any indea?


THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP
post #27 of 44
Since you have no standby light, the next test will require a digital multimeter - do you have one?
post #28 of 44
Yes I have one...
Tell how to do...

Thank you
