One important step to see if you are having an internal problem is to perform 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 does not work but you are still seeing a LED lit up, there is probably a problem between the TV's power supply and the mainboard and service maybe required.

Lg 42" tv not displaying screen image


The t-con board controls the picture. To test it shine a flash light on the screen abd see if you can see an image when the TV is on. If you do then the T-con board is OK. Look at the back light ballast board (sometimes is part of the power supply board) If you see no movement or a dim picture with the flash light, then the T-con board is gone.

TV Turns on (Blue Light) and then turns off but there is no imagae or sound of Tv Turning On! Nor Backlights turning on!


Sounds like there's a short in the power somewhere. I'd start with unplugging it then checking to make sure all cables and/or cords are properly connected (i.e. make sure there are no loose cords anywhere)

TV wont turn on sometimes. push the on button, light turns from red to blue but no display or sound. If I disconnect the power cord for 15-20 min and plug it back in to the tv it will turn on and stay


My Samsung started doing that and it got worst and worst. Searched the web and find answer. It was the high voltage circuit. All TVs now are like computer and it check for 390 to 400 volts and if it is below, the TV will not turn on. Good thing the Samsung has only one capacitor showing the high voltage circuit. Measure the voltage was 381 volts. The capacitor was rated at 100 uf at 450 volts. From some old TV and power supply, got two capacitors rated 150 uf and 220 uf both at 400 volts. Had to connect them in parallel and took out the old capacitor. Now, my TV works fine.

Hello, I have a 42"


Sounds like a backlight is out. If its still under warranty, exchange it. First try unplugging it for two minutes to reset the t.v.

My tv went out and the light in front which is red or when on is blue slowly strobes red and will not come on


I think your mean “your TV can't turn on, and the LED red light off too” If it is true, you shall check the power switch first, because only the LG TV have the power switch (Sony 2010 model’s does). If I guess wrong, please provide more information, I wish I can help you.

42 in LG LCD TV turns off by itself


Found that TV started switching off by itself. Would try to come on..green light blinked for 2-3 seconds, tv came on (with picture and sound) for 1 or 2 seconds and then it would turn itself off. Found that the issue is with one channel only. If you are facing this issue....try quickly changing the channel the moment it comes on. You can do it either with remote or with the TV buttons directly. also in the same logic, if this is still happening, try changing the source to another (rgb-pc, av1, av2 etc). Basically change it from whatever input it is on currently, if changing the channels does not work. My symptom was that the tv made a loud 'TIK' 'TAK' sound which is louder than normal.
