Default LG 42" Plasma TV - Howto invoke AUtO GEN?

Hi all,
I got in this beast of a tv of which i am needing advice on how to access the AUTO GEN function so that i can test if my main board is perhaps faulty.
There is a 4 pin plug on the plasma control board but i don't know what to do there and i cannot find any reference on the web to it.
I have added photos to jar your memories...
This is PDP42V8 chassis.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Angelos

I believe you need to short pins 3 & 4 on the plug (2&3 are the same point)

Will Do R_J. I need to test that the main boad is alive before i move to suspect the plasma drive boards. Then i will create a new thread on my observations.
Thank you.
