    I AM NOT A TV REPAIRMAN SO I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO CORRECT THAT ISSUE

    QUESTION SHOULD I TAKE IT TO A SHOP AND WHAT COST DO YOU THINK IT SHOULD COST TO REPAIR???

    THIS SET WAS NEW IN 2006 IS IT WORTH REPAIRING ????

    THE PICTURE IS SUPER ON IT AND DO YOU THINK THAT WILL SOLVE THE COMPUTER ISSUE IAM HAVING WITH IT???



    THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME ON THIS MATTER

These LCDs have a feature to turn OFF after some time if they do not sense any signal getting into the TV, that is why when you use it as a PC monitor and leave ON; it will turn OFF by itself.
The short term solution to make the LCD power up properly when using it as a PC monitor would be to unplug it when it turns OFF by itself and plug it back in.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

    The LCD's power supply overheats and make the whole circuity shutdown, that is when you are not able to do anything until you unplug it and leave it OFF for a while. A few capacitors in the power supply are most likely giving up on it due to the heat around them. If you open the power supply, visually inspect the capacitors for leaky or bulging conditions and replace as needed.

    Most service techs will charge you to give you an estimate. The estimate is about $30.00 just to tell you what is wrong with your TV. From that point on is your decision if you want to get it repaired.

    If the repair cost is about 1/3 of what you paid for the TV still worth it to get it fix. I have a couple of these LCDs and they have a great picture.

How does one find out if my Insignia flat-screen either can mirror or do cast to get my tablet to play movvies on my t.v


It can only do this if it is a Smart TV that connects to your home wifi network. What happens is the signals travels from the tablet though the network to the television.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

if your question is that if cable or sat converter goes off for any reason , will your tv display a black screen , then the answer is yes , without an input most all tv sets will display the opposite of full white , this being full black , also any on screen displays might not work as well (no video to sync too)

Connect proscan to pc


You can only do this if the TV has an input for the computer, it would be the "RGB" in video input options menu of the TV.

LG 55LM4600-UC LED TV I have was squirted with a squirt gun. Would replacing the t-con board fix this tv? Please read further details.


when water shorts out something it overloads a lot of other components so the best advice is to take it in for a proper diagnosis.
you just replace a board but another board is damaged it might just blow the board you replaced and that would prove nothing

I have a rca model led65g55r120q tv flickers and no sound


Check all cables for loose connection, try another input for picture (DVD, BLu-Ray, etc). If none of the other inputs work then it's a panel problem (display) If one or more of the others work then it's a problem with either the tuner or the signal.

LG 26LH2000 television. Last 2 days when I turned my TV on there was only sound, and black screen.


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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To 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. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

One thing is that unless it is usb you should always have the devices powered DOWN before connecting them via" wire electric data cables". it only takes 3 static volts of electricity to damage a circuit board. when you zap you buddy when you wear sox its 20 to 30,000 volts of static electricity so 3 volts would not be known let alone felt or seen. Power down and you will be well not you .
