In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

3 year old 42in LG LCD TV scrren went blank


You will either have a fault with the inverter board which drives the backlights or a faulty backlight in the screen. If the problem is a backlight then a replacement screen is the only cure. One or the other is breaking down after it has been opn for a certain period of time, have an engineer call out & check with a tester if it is a screen problem.

Programming wrking fine, however i have no channel guide/listings


Call LG. They will have you go through diagnostics over the phone and ask for diagnostic data the TV has in memory.

I have done this about 10 times and my TV usually loses all it's TV guide data after I customize my channel listings (delete all the channels I don't susbscribe to). Within a day or two of calling them, my TV Guide is back to normal.

I will never buy another LG TV. Thank God I bought the extended warranty. I've had the power supply already replaced (this is also the 2nd set..replaced 1st set due to same issue), TV turns itself on at times ( in winter - low humidity/static electricity??), and loses TV Guide listings on a frequent basis (after I change the channel map).

LG 32'' LCD TV aspect ratio self switching


I have an LG LCD TV with the same problem.
The solution is to go to
MENU
OPTIONS
FACTORY RESET
And select HOME rather than STORE on initial setup.
Mine was set to store as it was a display model.
That means that whatever picture setting you make they will reset after 10 minutes.

TRY AUTO PROGRRAMMING AL YOUR CHANNELS AGAIN. IF THIS DOES NOT FIX IT YOU NEED A MAIN TOTAL ASSY THE BLOTCHINESS IS A LCD PANEL PROBLEM. THE PANEL NEEDS REPLACING.

My 2 month old 37" LG HDTV won't turn on...


You might consider using Best Buy's "Geek Squad" just to make sure the set is not a dud.   I'm sure if it's near to the 30 days, they would be real schmucks not to replace it.   But, maybe it's just a setting somewhere in a menu.  Have a good look at the manual with a beer, and I'm sure you will find something useful.
Good luck.

LG 42in LCD Television - turning unit off


The amount of standyby power consumtion is minimal. The only way to turn it off completly is to disconnect the power from the TV. This will however increase your start up time when you want to use the TV.
