Follow up question on black level

Hey Cassidy:

Hope you are enjoying the day with the kids - how old? I have a two year old and a five year old.

Just wanted to ask - black level rendering not the best on the LG. On the settings you gave me some times blacks blend together or the scene is too dark. Any suggestions to adjust this?

Thanks,
Dan

I have 6year old son 4 year old son and 3 year old daughter you might play around with black level and gamma switching in between. I would go ahead and get it calibrated, well they will lock in the day and night feature on the expert1 and 2 that way it cant be changed i would have them set it to ur hdmi output to ur bluray player thats just me and then put the same specs out for ur hd tv settings on ur own just copy them and well sd use intelligent sensor thats what i do the i sensor does pretty well for the sd signals. no the black level is not grand but really black levels are overrated unless u work for cnet and yes they biased i dont care what the nay sayers say they gave the lg60 not such a good review, their plasma biased. plasmas are nice especially pioneer, but i like the punch of lcds, and i hate having to becareful about this and that with plasmas.

Seriously I don't think Fixya can help much. We are more techno here for the most part. How about getting on Facebook with this message (and watch out for scammers)?

Tv went black no sound either. TV only five years old,is there anything i can do? Thanks James


Cannot offer solution but my mine has also gone bad.  At first a black shadow appeared on the left side of the screen.  Took it to the authorized service center.  they kept it a few days, said nothing could be done.  Used it anyway for the next 5 years when suddenly it went black (or sometimes blue) after working perfectly for the first 5 minutes. A sharp rap next to the right speaker fixed it a few times, but no more.  Good luck.

32" tv, five years old


Hello,

This is a typical problem with the video board inside the TV becoming faulty. I recommend taking it to the store you purchased it at and asking if they are able to fix it.

My kid sprayed water on the tv. that night black ...




You could try to let the water dry out (it may have already), and hopefully the circles may go away or be less visible.

The problem may get worse if the water has damaged a board inside the TV.

For the next few days, I would not leave the TV plugged in if it is not being watched.

I hope this information has helped you.

Good Luck.

5 year old plasma that looses half the picture


Hello. I recommend that you forget the repair for two reasons. 1. Pricey. 2. You still have a 5 year old set with no warranty. In the last five years, the tv technology has come so far. The HD is fabulous. The new sets cost less to operate and they are so much better than they were five years ago. Joe

Westinghouse ltv32w6hd power supply


One of two symptoms on this model (LTV-32W6HD) Blue light comes on but cannot shut off. No picture; OR No picture but sound is OK. 1: In both cases replace ALL the electrolytic capacitors onthe output side of the power supply. This should get the power switch to worknormally. 2: Replace the small tiny wee little tiny small 2.0A fuse onthe inverter board labeled F1. This is the small black fuse, not the slightly bigger whiteones labeled F2 and F3.Ta Da...all fixed.

Choosing a calibration tech - please help!


black levels in lcd depend 99% on the technology used lg uses ips panels well sammy and sony use the latter thats why they get a tad better blacks but ips generally do colors better and the fact that th lg we have, has the all new 10 bit panels in them i myself like the pop of the lgs color over the barley there difference of blacks between it, sony and sammy, my honest opinion and let me reiterate my own opinion well lets put it like this my friend this is honestly the best way to describe greyscale, its like a painters canvas while its not as close to accurate as possible well the colors will not be as close to accurate as possible the greyscale is the starting point period this guy adjust while you watch then when ur mind is tricked into liking it well hes done kinda con but not a 100 % i mean he shows up atleast greyscaling and well isf ccc is an art and a science ur tv is able to hold ruler straight scale from 10 to 100 man like i said earlier this guy will only give half the pie, save ur money, and after x-mas treat ur self i promise u wont be sorry i am loving mine and well its hard for a tv to impress me but this lg well i cant quit playing with Hey the response time in cinema mode is 2.7 seconds wow, and leave fresh contrast off that equals 40,000 dynamic contrast now that is torch mode, hey intelligent sensor can save u 65% thats alot, did u get extended warranty.


c. YOU KNOW IN UR MIND THAT U WANT TO GET IT DONE RIGHT! lol

Service Menu


well u can run test patterns and maybe see if theres any stuck or dead pixels u can auto test, you can set default color rgb respectively, u can change model info which just shows you the sharp makes the 52 inch 10 bit panels and some vizitio or something makes the 42-47 models hey i would wait till u get the money man i mean my expert settings are dead on on my monitor but like i said they most likely are not calibrated 100% identical, im from us u ur from canada so yeah they might not be perfect on ur tv but i gurantee they are pretty close and most people could live with them indefinatley but i would suggest getting it calibrated it doesnt matter when treat it like a surprise be content with current settings then set a goal of getting calibrated per ur tv hell itll be like christmas when u get it recalibrated even if u dont see a huge difference ur mind will make u believe otherwise. ur tv has the option to be 10 point calibrated use it it within itsself is a rarity plus hown damn close you can get them running straight and all the way from 10 to 100 that is good and i gurantee u whoever calibrates ur tv will respect that lg fan or not.

Hi guys.  This is totally fixable and pretty easy if you have tech skills at all.  I performed this fix even before I found the following thread that will explain it, and it worked flawlessly!  Read it entirely and follow carefully.  this works on many different models of plasma's.
