I tried to turn on my LG 42 LCD with the 160 g hard drive about 2 years
old and the green light blinks a few times the screen dose not turn on
I have no functions remote or on the TV . I have unplugged it hoping
it would reset but no luck . any ideas
This is probably bad capacitors on the power supply board. My LG 42LB1DR has a known problem with this and I replaced the four bac capacitors myself and saved 5-6 hundered dollars that I was also told that it would cost to fix. I fixed for under 10 dollars and about 20 minutes. LG knows about it but they dont really want to admit it. My TV was only 26 months old when this happened. The four capacitors are made by Samxon and are 2200uf @ 10v. They are junk so even if you have the entire board replaced for say $200 its just going to happen again. They need to be replaced with a different brand.

First of all check the remotes. You can easily check the remote is it working or not. Justpoint the remote to a digital cameras or a mobile camera and press any button . If the remote is functioning then you can see a white light blinking.

no. there's some problem on its display circuits that it need to be corrected, picture becoming dark has some problem with the inverter power supply circuits that responsible for lighting the small lcd flourescent light. maybe some loose connection in the components cause that to happen
By running it after it shutdown and it finally did its last pop that added another $XX to the parts bill.
The control boards (2) have now failed There are burned Capacitors ( pop!) and possibly even a few transistors burned out. This is not a DIY it is a Tech job as once changed these boards require additional tuning of the convergence factor.

Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.
