Question about LG 42LP1D 42 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

Getting an Error Code 101

I had my Timeshift stop on me and the tv said it needed to initialize the HDD and lists it is a Error Code 101. I formatted the drive but it will only last for about 10-20 minutes and then it will stop again. It sounded like LG service center didn't know what to do. Is this a problem with the hard drive? I have also heard a metal grinding sound almost like bad metal bells from behind the tv. I can stop the sound if I turn off the tv and turn it back on. The 42LB1DR is over a year old so no warrenty. If it is the hard drive, can I replace it and what type does it take?

SOURCE: I have a LG 42LB1DR

I just got of the phone with a manager at LG and they want to send out a technician to figure out the problem. I made it more than clear that their are more than just a handful of us experiencing this problem, and they are "looking into it".

I think we all need to call in and complain, and drive the fact home that this is not a single incident, but that there are many of us having this problem. Point them to this forum, and tell them your faith in LG is waning. A threat of informing the Better Business Bureau never hurt either. That's what I did, and now they are looking into it more, and are going to cover the parts on the service call, so that my expense for their problem is covered, even though my warranty is expired.

If we want this fixed, and prevented in the future, we have to call and bitch, that is the bottom line. It is unfortunate, but that is how it has to work sometimes.

Here is the number for their customer service: 800-243-0000

If you hear anything new, let us know!

SOURCE: LG TV 42LB1DR INITIALIZATION PROBLEM

mine did the same thing once, I unplugged it long enough to make sure it shuts down all the way and let it reset itself. Turned it back on and it was and is fine [it's been 2 mos. now] That worked this time.
Last time one of my kids spilled something down the back and it gradually went out. 600.00 to have the part replaced.

SOURCE: 42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

This is almost certainly the device that sends electricity to the the plasma in the panel after failing. Bring to your local repair shop and expect to pay 300-400 parts and 100-200 labour.

Cheers,

GETTING ERROR CODE HDD FATAL ERROR 50..CABLE TYPE RGA OR HDMI IS THE SAME ERROR CODE


Do you hear any clicking sound when the player is switched on?
If so the HDD has become faulty. This normally happens when the player is dropped. You need to replace the HDD but if you are on warranty get a replacement for free. Never say you dropped it as the warranty will be void.

If you do not hear a clicking noise try to format the player and see whether it helps. Also look for the latest firmware upgrade from the manufacturer.

Transferring from timeshift buffer to hdd


When in timeshift, press record on the remote (every time you push "record" 30 minutes are added) and make sure the program you are recording is not macro protected. If your program has already finished rewind to the beginning of the program and push record the correct number of times to cover your program and then press stop on the remote. It should then be at the bottom of your hard drive list.
