Question about Televison & Video
I bought this tv 3 weeks ago and av 1 stopped working so i started to use av 2 but after a couple of days that stopped so i took the tv back and got it replaced i just wondered if you knew this was a common fault with lg LCD TVs.

Most likely it is not the TV; it's a grounding problem. Are all your devices plugged into the same power strip? They should be. Can you plug that power strip in to another outlet in the wall (even with an extension cord, just for testing purposes)? If that removes the lines, leave it plugged in there. If you can't leave it plugged in there, you'll need an isolator like the Jensen VRD-1FF or similar.
Hope this helps!

IR senor may not be bad. Try using a different remote (universal) and program to TV. If universal remote works and your doesn't, you may need to purchase a remote instead of IR board. If you confirmed that the IR board is bad then replacing the IR board will fix the remote issue. IR board is an easy fix. Just open the back cover out and it's located right in the middle toward the bottom of the TV.

change out the LVDS cable (the cable that go from the control board to the main board) and it should resolve your problem. If your TV is still in warranty, call 1-877-MY-VIZIO and they will set up an in home repair for free.

I have the same TV and I just replaced the Capacitors. It came with 2 10000UF 10V caps and I put in 2 1000UF 35Volt caps from radio shack. Its like brand new. There is even a video on how to change them on You Tube.
