Question about LG 32LC7D Television

2 Answers


Well my problems are just like others read mine below yours.
Here is what I found out and if anyone inverter fails this is the reason.
Now my warranty was up for my LG 32LC7D flat panel TV, so with my screen going black, I had nothing to loose so I opened the TV and took the back off. I found that when the screen goes black the screen and back was extremely HOT so I tried cooling it off. I took the back off and kept off for two days, the TV did not freeze nor did the screen go black either, it was on even when I was not watching it just for test sake some times when I could feel the heat I put my house fan on pointed at the back of the TV and until now, no more black screen, so I went to the audio store and bought a 110V amplifier extractor FAN cut a ROUND hole in the plastic back panel of the TV over the transistor heat sinks and bolt it up. I am no technician so I did not connect the fan to the TV circuit board but instead put a plug on the wire and plug it into my cable box power plug,
So whenever I turn the cable box on the fan would come on with the TV. I Put the back on and now the screen is cooler the remote responds, the TV have not froze for 4 days now and the TV will work until I fall asleep and get up to turn it off like normal . The fan makes a little sound but not much more than a computer if you have a good technician you can have him install 2 small 12V computer fans and find some where on the circuit board to connect then so they work with the TV power supply. I sure hope my problems are over and this will help others. Try to keep the TV away from close quarters and hot walls .This TV runs hotter than a ctr TV.
As for LG the TV needs a proper cooling system + small cooling fans and more cooling ports on the back of the TV ,cause there is only 1 small vent about 2 X 3 inches below the heat sink and heat does not go down everybody knows heat goes up. The vents at the top are not enough to cool this TV without the aid of extractor fans. LG should test TVs in a hot room to simulate hot homes in summer times to see the defects. Shame on LG to let a simple costumer find this out. My house is not hot, I live at least 1600 feet above sea level in the rural of Jamaica and it rains every day so it is not a hot house problem. Heat dissipation is a real killer for this TV and any inverter failure. Talk to your technician and try my theory,
If your warranty is up the he only thing you have to loose is your TV.

I have a Philips Ambilight 47PFL7603D/10, during use the screen will randomly turn off/go black, but the sound remains as normal. If I turn the TV off and on again the TV will work again for 5-10mins.

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
Some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

I turned on my tv and the memorex logo comes on the screen then it goes dark then the pictere comes in for 2 seconds then the screen goes black again. I have sound but no picture. I can't even bring up the...

LCD sets (other than those very new) use fluorescent back lighting to produce the picture. Those lights require high voltage to ionize them so the problem could be either the tubes themselves or the inverter that produces the high voltage is failing. Anyone with some degree of manual finesse and possessed of logic can cure this problem but it may be difficult to identify the failed part accurately meaning that if you 'shotgun' the problem, you would need to replace both the tube(s) and the inverter board. The latter is in most sets as a separate assembly which derives its operating voltage from the main power supply and will be obviously attached to the fluorescent tube(s).
The board will have to found from the manufacturer or a company that disassembles scrapped sets.
Check with the site below for availability:
Jimmy's Parts
Search on your set's model number and the term 'inverter.'
The tube(s) can be bought from several US suppliers.

Sanyo ce32ldy1b lcd 160gb black screen with sound

It sounds like you have a power supply problem, this powers the inverter! Where you just replaced the inverter, we could assume it is good! Look for some bad caps (capacitors) on the power supply board. They will look bulged on the top an may be a little leaky (brownish stain). The power supply can fail on some output and be good on others. Was the back light inverter new? If all else fails, see if you can return the back light inverter and get another! I hope this is helpful!!

My Emerson flat screen

If it's like mine, you would have to keep replacing the inverter transformer. It's a junk part that everyone is having a common problem. The repair shop may have replaced the bad one, but that doesn't mean the others will go bad later. I have a 32" that uses 6 inverter transformers.

LG 32LC2R screen goes black after 2 sec.

My LG 32lc7d 32 inch TV is 9 months old (December 2007 to September 2008) and now the screen goes black with sound and the channels will change I can hear them. Also when the TV is fine if I touch the remote it freezes the picture, so turn it off and on witch does not respond to the remote for five seconds, turn it on again & it works for 2 to 3 hours then same problem. LG claim its a software problem, well I got link to the firmware update down load to my memory stick and stuck it in the usb port on the back of the TV, software update fine no problem, TV reset all my preference are lost no problem I can set it how I like it ,but now worst things are happening the screen goes black after 15 to 20 minutes and no sound now ,so the firmware did not work but cased more problems and less viewing time .NNNOOO more LG product for me in life again .
I bought the TV for $1000 us and the DVD up converting player for $110 + sound system
So I could 1 remote to make life easer for me, but life is better for LG now since they have my money and all I have are their problems.
We should come together and attack LG about this problem or boycott them and their products for good, hundreds of thousands of people have this problem and nothing.
What’s the sense of a warranty if there no fix for your problems and you can’t get your money back. I have bought so many LG products and now no fix. There are millions of people who don’t have a $1000 us in there bank account..
I now feel like I was held at gun point and robbed by millionaire.
