Question about LG 42LP1D 42 in. LCD HDTV
I have a perplexing problem I'm hoping someone out there can help me with. I purchased a 42" LG LCD flat panel (model 42LB1DRA) about a month ago. Daily, it would turn itself on at 10:58 PM! It would also lose power (the red standby light would turn off) in the middle of the night. My wife says its around 12:30 AM. The only way I could get the indicator light to turn back on is by unplugging the power cord from the set and then plugging it back in (doing so from the wall would not work). The store we purchased it from thought it was our cable card (Warner Cable). We got a new one. That did not help. They also suggested unplugging the power for 24 hours to see if that would force a resetting of the TV's memory when we repowered it. It did not. Yes, we did look to make sure the auto-on timer function was set to "off". Funny, though, the default time was set to 10:58 PM. We were given a new set and for the first week, it worked fine. Then, we recorded a TV program and we watched a DVD. Since then, you guessed it, the TV once again turns itself on every night at 10:58. Today, for the first time, it also did so around 10:03 AM! I thought perhaps the DVD was somehow responsible so I disconnected it from the set. That did not help. I thought, too, that maybe there is something in our bedroom emitting an IR signal that might turning the set on. I hung a blanket over the set to block it if such were the case, and the set still turned on. I'm afraid to say this, but so far, we have not lost power as with the first set. The store has called LG service, but they had no solution. Anyone out there have any ideas??? Thanks in advance, Michael
Try setting the default time on the timer to 00:00 see if that helps Did to one person and they said all was good. Good luck
