LG Electronics LCD & Plasma TV Class Action Lawsuit

By Kimberly Mirando


LG ElectronicsLG Electronics, Inc. has been hit with a class action lawsuit that alleges it sold certain LCD and Plasma TVs that are “predisposed to premature performance degradation and/or failure.”

The LG Electronics LCD & Plasma TV class action lawsuit claims the company sold these televisions with defective components such as circuit boards, control boards, circuit chips and capacitors that can fail prematurely. Part of this premature failure is due to the components overheating from insufficient cooling fans, heat sinks and other ventilation components.

The allegedly defective television models included in the LG Electronics LCD & Plasma TV class action lawsuit are:


LG Electronics LCD & Plasma TV class action lawsuit is brought on behalf of all current and former owners of the above named model numbers that sustained a monetary loss incurred from repairing and/or prematurely replacing the LG television and components.

The case is Deborah Moulton v. LG Electronics, Inc. and LG Electronics USA, Inc., Case No. 2:11-cv-04073-JLL, New Jersey District Court.

    My LG 42PC3D Plasma HDTV has sound but not picture. It burned too prematurely. I went to some blogs and they recommended to look at this class action suit.

    My 55LD520 is doing the same thing Flashes a second and won’t start up. Brought it July 2010. IMO this model also needs to be added to the Class action Law suit. Basicly I got $1400 Dollar TV that don’t work. Shouldn’t be alowed to sell this junk IMO.

    My LG tv 47LW6500 broke within 4 months of purchase. Now every two weeks LG service techinician is making house calls and I am staying home from work to engage him for to diagnose by trial and error where every part takes 2-3 weeks to be shipped. And customer service – oh my the worst of all. She yelled at me and shoved it face saying it is LG’s dicretion to deny replacement and as per their policy they can take any number of months to diagnose.
    If you cant take off from work to engage, the only option left is to be stuck with broken TV

    How can I be included in this suit? I’m having the same issues with my LG 50PC5D Plasma HDTV.

    My 60PV250 model of two weeks is doing this. Will be calling LG in the morning to get it worked on. Hopefully the warranty will cover this. Anyone else with this problem?

    I have a 55LD520, 15 months old, and it shut off yesterday and will not turn back on. It flashes “LG” and then goes black again. LG service, after a 75 minute phone call with 4 reps, basically said “too bad” it was our problem. LG products seem to work well until just past the warranty problem. Are they programmed this way? This is the 2nd LG we had the same problem with, the first one was a 42-inch.

    My LG42PC3d did the same – turned off and now I only get sound. I want to be part of the lawsuit. Please tell me how do I do this?

    I have a 42LC2D that flashes when you turn it on for a few second but won’t start up. No picture or sound just a black screen. Brought it April 2007. It stopped working 2weeks after the extended warranty expired. Now, I have to look for a repairman to fix my expensive toy that does not work.

    My LG50PG3000 did the same – video turned off and now I only get sound. I want to be part of the lawsuit. Please tell me what should I do this?

    My lg 37lc2d has damaged capacitors, this is very bad for the environment, a cheap component makes the TV worthless, we can pay, but what damage is it doing, millions of tvs destined for the scrap heap, cheap nasty components, is this some sort of joke. And we all disposed of perfectly working old tech for this new tech that does not last 5 minutes.

    We purchased a 47″LG LED tv. We bought the extended warranty through HH Gregg. We have had the same problem twice. The first time the board did not go completely out but it was replaced. This time the TV was all white and after a week, someone showed up to look at the TV. The repairman, called the office and gave the info on what he found. The repairman said he was told it was the motherboard. A motherboard was ordered. About a week later, the repairman showed up with the motherboard, installed it, only to find out that it is not the motherboard and that it is the same board that was replaced before. Now, we have to wait another week for them to send another board and during this time we are without a television. The warranty says that if they have to repair the same problem twice, the product will be replaced. This is like pulling teeth. Now that they have been told it is the same problem, they want us to wait until they make a decision on whether or not they should approve a new tv. It is almost a month since we started this campaign to get this television repaired. I have never experienced anything like this before. I am wondering if you are also including LG LED tv’s in the suit as well.

    I have the 55LX9500. Less than a year after buying it black lines started showing up. Less than 2 years after buying it, it’s bad enough that we’re looking for a new TV. The LG technician charged us $90 to tell us the backlight panel costs more than a new TV- so to just buy a new TV. I’ve heard of a lot of people with this same problem. I expect the useful life of a $2000 TV to be more than two years. Can you start a suit for the LG LED tvs also?

    We bought a 42″ lg lcd television in December 2010 but about a month ago it started turning itself off and taking forever to get it to stay on.

    Hi I’ve had my LG 42PJ350 Plasma for only almost two years and it started having trouble turning on. The screen would be black but you will hear sound from whatever channel it’s on. I used to be able to just turn it off and on a couple times and the screen will appear. Just today it has completely gone out just sound no picture. Not even doing what I said I did would work. I see the list of TVs on here they should add in the LG42PJ350 also. I really thought LG was a good tv so that’s why I picked it up a RC Willey. Now the thing that stinks is I don’t have Thant many more payments left and this happens. I refuse to pay for something that doesn’t work…

  • Earl Maciel June 24, 2013

    My LG 55ld520 is begining to give me problems. It the screen will suddenly fade to black. If I turn the set off and wait a few minutes, it generally comes back on. I’m waiting for the day it won’t come back on. When will you be adding LG55ld520 to your list
