Free 42" Plasma Screen
Yes you read it right & yes there is a catch.
It's several years old & it's an LG.
It does work, but has a couple of failed electronic boards which effectively means it only displays part of the picture.

Replacement boards are available & it'll cost in the region of £200 & maybe an hours work to fix.
Obviously there's no guaruntees Wink

A new one would be £350ish, but that would come with a warranty.

I can do piccies, demo & help fix it, but I have no use for it & it'll either end up on eBay or in the tip.
C'mon people!
If nothing else this'll make a great paperweight Big Grin Big Grin
Have you taken it apart? Could just be a few blown capacitors etc or somethings come desoldered
I've had a good look inside, yep!
It's quite a common problem with these PDP's apparently, which is why the boards are available.
Sadly this is a V6.  The V7 repair kit is £60 >Sad

But the fact remains that this thing is too big for most of my rooms & too small for the front room, so it is of no use to me or I'd happily fix it for £200.

The relevant forums all talk about "board failure" & replacing the affected boards completely.
I dare say someone with the spare time & aptitude could isolate th fault on the boards & just replace the component rather than the boards themselves, but since it's no use to me I really can't be arsed.

My BIL left it with me to fix for him, but he wants me to spend the money to fix it & he'll reimburse me if it works - yeah right!

I can get £40 or so for parts - I just thought I'd offer it as a project first.
