Question about LG RU-52SZ51D 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

3 Answers

4" along one side of screen has lower intensity

I have had my TV for just over a year and never had any problems with the image on my screen. However, 2 days ago I noticed that the last 4"-5"" of my screen (vertical line on the left side only) have dropped in intensity by about 80-90%. This occured suddenly and there were no noticable indicators prior to this. I have ruled out a problem with incomming signal by trying out my DVD with the same results. The TV has not been moved, or bumped, or exposed to any harmful elements (including magnetic fields from speakers). Any suggestions before I contact aervice rep? Thanks in advance.

Same thing has happened to me but the tech said the light engine has gone out and to replace it cost as much as the tv. So after this I will never buy anything with the words LG or projection. Please don't buy this junk get a plasma or lcd.

It is the lamp. I just recieved this exact set which had a bad lamp. I installed another lamp from an older projector that I found and I now get a very dim picture all over and I noticed the black on the left side. I will be ordering a new lamp soon as the one that I put in isn't enough wattage to show a bright picture. But I at least know that the set works.

If Im not mistakin this is a DLP projection system. The problem your describing most likly is not the dlp display chip Your problem sounds like it could be a reflection problem like smoke dirt or dust on the lens or light sheld or light reflector. Im thinking could even be the lamp its self.

Toshiba regza 32hl67 losing its' picture and motion is slow


I have a toshiba regza 32hl67 LCD tv which is only 2 1/2 years old. The picture on this unit just started to go the other day (screen darkens but images are still visible and the motion/movement is very slow). I contacted Toshiba and they just said to unplug the tv for 3 minutes to reset the tv. This doesnt work. I am VERY upset with Toshiba, after paying $800 for a tv that only lasted 2 1/2 years. If anyone has had similar issues and know how to fix it, please let me know. Thanks

My 52inch xbr4 tv is 2 years old. Intermitently over past 2 months, when I first turned it on, I get thin vertical lines and double imaging especially over left half of screen. After a few minutes it would...


I have the same issue. Bought the TV 1/08 and it started showing those exact symptoms about 3-4 months ago. It generally progresses and gets worse. You can try to fix it as it's some kind of TAB connector issue, or keep calling Sony so that the 52" owners of the XBR4 and 5 series get the extended warranty just like the 46" owners received for the same series. If enough of us keep calling, they'll have to act.

Display problem for magnavox 42" model 42mf230a/37


first make sure its not an input problem or from an external source.Disconnect all inputs and see if lines are present with no inputs to tv.if lines affect menu and or ON SCREEN DISPAY (top) there is a good chance (SSB) board could be bad .I would start with this board first ,lvds cable (second) and last the logic board (comes only with new LCD)

Check the screen position switch, they sometimes get fouled especially if installed in a kitchen.
