Question about LG 32LB9D TV

1 Answer

Screen color is blue

When the tv is turned on, the tv comes up with blue screen only. I checked the cable wires and that is not the problem. How do I get the tv to work with a blue screen? The tv does nothing but the
blue screen.

What happened was, my kids were playing playstation and all of a sudden the tv just went blue.
now, it won't do anything but the blue screen.

Please help.

    I have two remotes for the tv. One is the satilite remote & the other came with the tv. Neither remotes have an AV or EXT button on them. I can't get either remote to work. I know there is no problem with the remotes because I hooked up another tv & it worked fine. Any ideas ?

    Have a Great Day! :-)

    You said your kids were playing play station. They have changed the in put source setting. Please go to source setting with the remote control and change it to your input source. Good luck to you.

A blue screen normally comes on in AV or EXT mode, try changing the tv settings back on the controls in TV mode

I hopethis helps

    sorry I should have mentioned if you have an AV or EXT button on your controls, keep pressing it until you get back to your tv. If you have cable or a freeview box connected to your tv make sure that this is on when you press the AV or EXT buttons.

    the only other thing that I can suggest is unpluging everything that goes into you tv and turn them off by the mains. Leave it for a minute then plug your connecitons back into the tv then turn the mains back on. Sometimes I get this screen if my freeview box freezes and i need to reset it by pressing the button on the back.

    Your control may have a button that says 'sat' i'm not sure.

    It's worth a try any way

After warm-up screen flashes and loses color but comes back on and off intermittidly. This is a 50" Zenith Plasma tv. thanks.

Sounds as if a cable connection is bad. Check the cables first. If cable are good, change inputs, if cables are bad replace cables. If it's component, make sure that red, blue or green didn't come loose on both sides...the tv and the source. If you still have problems, check for red video noise on the screen itself, preferably when it's on but with on input (black) If you notice this, your plasma is failing.

Tv went grayscreen, flickering. turned off, then

When you had gray screen and flickering you had only one problem - color wheel. After "putting everything together" you have totally different problem, caused by multiple possibilities like: forgotten connectors, cut/jammed cables/wires, lamp not being inserted properly, lamp door not being set properly, disconnected color wheel, etc. Try to open rear cover and redo what you have done. Remove optical block, check everything visually and slowly put everything back. If still no luck - then only skilled TV repairman may (or may not) help.

When I hook my tv up to my desktop computer the screen looks like it is going to work (it says dell then the loading bar fills up) as a monitor until it is time for my log in screen to come up. The screen...

This is normally due to a frequency or resolution incompatibility. Turn on your desktop computer, then change the screen resolution to 800x600 or 1024x768. Save the settings. Reboot to check that it is indeed saved.
Once you boot up on your TV, it should display fine. Gradually increase the resolution and colors to the max your TV can handle.

Screen goes blue on digilogic tv we have it set up with karoke machine we can get volume but no lyrics come up .

Blue screen on most TVs indicates that it is not able to see a signal on the input that is chosen. Most TVs have multiple inputs now, and some of the connectors share the same colors as well. I am betting that your karaoke box uses a 3 wire cable that comes out, 1 red, 1 white, 1 yellow that should go to the composite input on the TV. Here is the problem with that kind of cable. Very easily damaged. If you are sure that the input is set correctly on the TV, try replacing the cable.

If you tap the tv and the color bar is gone then its a ground problem with in those circuits above. Needs a solder re-flow and check the condition of ribbon cables.

The color on the screen is green when I watch movies. How do I fix this problem?

Good day sir, your inquiry about the green lcd screen can be caused by several things. 1. The monitor/tv produces 3 colors, red green and blue, the tv mixes these three colors to produce the picture. a loss of red and blue produces this green screen. so check the cable, specially the red and blue jack of the component inputs, and the red and blue cable. 2. there may be loose contact on the signal cable. try using the video input instead of the component input. 3. the dvd player may have the problem, check the player component out jack. a loose jack port can cause these problem. hope this may help. thanks

Hook up of dvd to tv

hey I think you need to use component cables blue green red from the player to the tv, make sure the blue green red ports are also on the tv, note: red yellow white composite cable will not interchange with blue green red component cable or connection.

simplify- blue green red= component
red white yellow=composite

*wires must match colors on both tv and player inputs.

then set your input on your tv to where you conected the cable.

Green Screen

Hi, how is the cable box hooked up to the TV? Is it HDMI cable or componet (red/green/blue) ? When you say totally green, do you mean the the picture is only green with the other colors missing or every color looks green ?

Lack of red color

The quickest thing to check will be the cable. Make sure that the cable is seated properly on both ends. (pull it out and reconnect it on the TV and on the source end as well.) What happens if you wiggle the cable or bend the wire just near the connector end? If the screen flickers or appears better when you do this, you should obviously replace the cable. (HDMI, Component, etc..)

If that does not work then the next thing to check will be the female connectors themselves within the TV/source housing - I've seen many DVD players have poor solder joints so that repeated pulling of a cable or other torque causes an internal connection to go bad. Does this happen with all sources (DVD, CABLE, SAT, etc?) You should first check the cable that connects directly to the TV.
