    Hello, I have a LG 42LH50 television with a cracked screen. The unit will not power up. I am trying to find a circuit schematic for this item but LG has been vary unhelpful.

    If anyone has a schematic or a good link to find one I would greatly appriciate it.

    Also, does anyone know if this television will powerup with a broken/cracked screen?

    I did some internet search time and qot squat. Owners manuals only.
    Maybe a seller like Sams? or am I showing my age?

    I searched online, and made a few phone calls. Sears offers a user manual and a parts breakdown (not including the board). LG said that they could not supply me with that information for "liability" reasons...

    They want you to pay retail at an "Authorized Service Center". (the dirty no-goods)
    Good brand not to buy, I see.

    If you have the chassis number, you might try to see if Sams Technical Publishing has a Photofact for it. I tried the model number you supplied on their site, but no results.

    Its an interesting dillema geting service info for TVs & the like. When iwas repairing TVs & VCRs 8 yrs ago if you was a service agent they were avalable, some companys sold them others they were free. Since bI wasnt a service agent there was a company which i joined for free & i could hire the manuals. Usually i photo copied relevant info & returned the manuals. If the manual was lost you paid forit. The legacy now is a small mountain of old service info & manuals from a service colegue who has died & my leftover stuff. Probably finish up as recycled paper!!
