Hello,
 
My parents have a LG 50PG60 that may be dead but I wanted to get a second opinion first.
 
The first issue I noticed was the TV speakers kept turning on even though they were turned off in the menus. The TV is hooked up to a receiver which is why we have the TV speakers off. However recently, upon turning the TV on, the internal speakers would be on and we would have to manually turn them off. From my experience with computers, this sounded like something may beginning to failure on the TV motherboard.
 
Second and what might have been the nail on the coffin was when watching the TV today. We were watching the TV when the screen just went blank.(Didnt hear a popping sound by the way) We still had audio coming from the surround sound, but just a blank screen. Turned the TV off and back on, and still a blank screen. Light is still on, but their is no picture. I unplugged all inputs and power and let it sit for a few minutes and the plugged power back in. Turn it on and still a blank screen but the backlight is on again. Using the remote and the on TV buttons also make the power button blink , but nothing on screen.
 
Is it time for a new TV? Any and all suggestions are appreciated!
