Well my friend, first try to set the color and tint lower as soon as is possible, if not you will need a new bulb for sure, and that is not cheap.
This problem has many causes, the main one is on the fly back that is over exited (screen presset), just twist it a little bit at first to see the reaction (with the tv on) , then set it at a lower gain but i recommend that if you don't have many skills don't attempt to adjust it because this components is a voltage elevator-transformer and handles a couple of kilo-volts, that makes it dangerous for you and for the screen. WARNING!! if you hear a light buzz better don't open the tv, the fly back has a leakage and you don't want those kilo-volts on your hand, you will survive, but is very bad experience.

if that doesn't correct the problem let us know to guide you to te process

Lightning struck and now no picture on my tv- sound works tho


I think the digital input selector section has got affected. I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation.

My LG TV has suddenly become darker all across the bottom of the screen (10cm strip) it still has colour but is darker. In left hand corner it is considerably darker and depending on what you are watching...


Hi; your TV has burn screen or traces.it comes from one image left on the screen for too long, it can get burned into the screen, making it visible at all times. You can actually eliminate most screen burns with the use of a PC computer and a black and white screen saver. This trick eliminates screen burn after a period of several minutes because the black and white screens flash quickly, removing all traces of color from the screen. This will eventually eliminate any burned images on the LCD screen. you can do it by creating a DVD picture slide with only black and white image. you can use a computer to make DVD picture slide first go to paint brush and draw only white then save as white.jpg. second burn it into nero or other dvd burner third play it to your DVD player connected to you LCD TV.it has to be played in full screen let the white image display on your HDTV for several hours or even overnight. It should remove any burned-in images or ghosts. hope this help...............
thanks....

Picture is frozen onto the screen. Tried powering off tv and cable box that did not work. Next unplugged TV and that did not work


Sounds like a burn in, this is common when some still image is left on the tv screen for sometime, the only hope is to get to a white screen or static screen and let set for awhile, like the old days when you didn't have cable or any input and the tv just frowns.

Image burn can be permanent if the image was left on for a long period of time. You can try a pure white screen to balance the screen out. They sell DVDs online that have white screen and other screen correcting images to try an correct the damage done to your panel. here is one linked plasma or LCD both can burn.
best of luck

Hi im michael i have a old sony projection screen 10 years old or more. i believe its a trinitron.the picture comes on for awhile then goes out and comes back on just a minute later


Hi Michael,

If you were to watch a DVD using a different input than the cable/satellite input, does the image also fade in and out? When the image disappears, are you able to view the TV's onscreen menu or does it disappear too? When the image comes back, does it look fine and is the brightness the same?

Arte you using a cable provider? if so you should be able to adjust it to a wide screen or stretch, most cable providers are supposed to apply the settings when installing the box, so that the screen will auto fit your set, otherwise you will get image retention
