It appears I'm having the exact same problem that rozco was having with his HCJ552W. A friend of mine actually gave this TV to me with this problem. I was hoping perhaps I could fix it. I don't know if they actually had a power surge or not. From the way they described it to me is that it just turned off. Now, when I try to turn it on it behaves exactly as Rozco described in his post.
When reading the previous post by Rozco, Techman gives a solution but I'd like to know what the final outcome was. What did Rozco finally end up doing to get his TV working again? And how much did it cost?

Hey i am having the same exact problem with my same exact tv. If you have already solved your problem I would love to know how u did it. I know you posted this a long time ago but if you havent gotten it fixed yet, if I fix mine i will let you know. Thanks.
Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.
well i know what the problem is... if your getting the white scroll and then the red light flashes but the fans are comming on and you got a new bulb the broblem is the ballast. i know cuz i had the same problem and a good friend of mine has a tv shop and i had him look at it but the good news is that its not that hard to change. if you try to go through LG thay wont be able to sell you the ballast if your just a coust. good news is that you can fined the ballast on ebay from easywaylamps its about $130.00 bucks shiped. bud news about is that thay are from china(it is where i got mine) but it works great and hasent gave me a broblem yet. if any one eles has the same problem and it was something eles.... PLEASE POST IT. i hope my info has been helpful to someone.... thanks Brad Ross of East Moline Illinois
