Unless you can do it yourself , the unit will need to have a board replaced , and should be done by an electronic tech, but you may see about getting the board from them , but they may tell you the same thing( call an electronic repair shop)

Sounds like you have an intermitant overdrive situation on the red CRT. This could be caused by a bad component on the Red CRT board, an intermittantly shorting CRT or the circuitry in the main board. You should not run it until the problem is resolved as you could damage the CRT if it is not already bad. This is something that unless you are a qualified tech you are not going to have any success resolving. It should not be very hard for a good tech to diagnose the problem. Costs will depend on the part which is bad. If it is the red CRT it probably is not worth fixing, but it could be a 50 cent capacitor. Certainly worth the cost of a service call. Good luck.

How can I tell if my new LG 42" 5020 lcd tv is 15000:1 ratio or 50000:1 ??


technically it is both it's just people get confused with dynamic contrast and static contrast. The LCD LG5000 Series (00,20,30) has a
[dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1]
this would typically be
[15,000:1 contrast ratio] for a plasma.
so to count for, lcd tvs use dynamic contrast and plasmas use static contrast it's just a way to measure them both.
like people weighing themselves soem weigh in kg some in pounds =p hope this helps.

I get a red/blue/green static at the top of my plasma tv.. when the picture goes to a dark color its usually speckles red.. then when its a light color it doesnt really show.. wats the problem?


In some cases it is just a matter of making voltage adjustments on a plasma set to get rid of the spots you are seeing. I would look for a reputable technician in your area to see if this is the case. Good luck...

This is a problem that I've seen a million times with HP TV's that use LG panels. The problem had to do with the controller board that sends the signal to the video sustain boards. To rule out any signal interference that maybe causing this if I'm wrong, bring up the OSD and try a DVD that is connected to a different input. If they are effected too, then it is has nothing to do with the incoming cable/satellite signal and the TV would require service.

Red-striped ghost images.


when you leave your TV (no matter what kind) and you leave it for long periods of time on a static image or something.. the image tends to burn in to the screen... so changing the glass would be a way to fix it.... the problem is that that kind of repairmen is more expensive and difficult than buying a new set...
