    I have the LG/DVR combo and it is just 2 years old and clicks, has a delayed picture which then blacks out and the TV is just black. I called LG and they gave me a repair number. I called and they said $80 to look at it, if I pull it off the wall and take it to them. Darn!

First thing to try is a power drain:

1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board. 3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on.
If this doesn't solve the issue, it sounds like your TV's connection between the power supply and the mainboard is defective. If the power supply was shot, you would hear nothing at all. I hope the above step helps.

My lg dryer want start up it just clicks three times when I press the start button

On older models the selection switch starts to wear out, click both the selection switch and timer switch around in a full circle & try starting again. If it is an electronic model, try unplugging it and let it sit 10 seconds then plug it back in and see if it reboots properly. A power outage or brown out may have effected it.

LG 42LD550 LCD - Internet connection problem

After the network is connected to the TV, you have to go into the TV’s network menu to complete the setup process.
If you look in your owner’s manual starting on page #55-#57, you can read the direction to walk you through the wired network setup process.
It should be very easy to setup as long as your router has the DHCP turned on. That allows the TV to automatically assign it an IP address on your network.
If the DHCP is not turned on in your router, then the TV’s IP will have to manually entered by you.

Problems starting up my LG RH188H

I had the same problem. After googling I found that the HDD might be faulty so I unplugged the device, brought it upstairs to unscrew it (to change the HDD for an empty new one). One last check before I really unscrewed the cover - and the recorder started again! After 5 minutes the 'please wait' returned. So, did the same thing again, tried a few times, and the recorder started. Then, I imediately reformatted the HDD, and the problem is now gone.

Clicking starter=car not starting

Regardless of the battery age,sounds to me as if you have a drain on the electrical system First thing to do is completely recharge battery. An initial quick inspection might show a light staying on, whether it be a door , reading, glove box, or trunk lights, among many other things. If nothing is obvious an electical reading of the system while removing and reinstalling fuses will show the circuit causing the drain, Hope this helps
