Somehow, you have gotten to a firmware information screen. Try pressing OK and Exit simultaneously on the LG remote. (Note: this doesn't work if you use a generic or other universal remote.) If you don't have the remote, you can try pressing Menu and OK on the TV. (These are the second and third buttons from the left.) I've only seen the remote method work.
If that works, you'll probably need to open the input list and change the current input. Press Input on the remote or on the TV (the leftmost button).
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.
I happen to have the same tv brand, size, and problem. The only difference is model. I bought mine black friday 2012 and its got screen problems. Im looking for a solution also to why it has the problem it has. It was working great for the time being until i noticed cloudy white spots around the perimeter edges. I found out its do to a few possibilities. One is the one thats wrong with mine that i believe is dead pixels. My tv doesn\'t look damaged in the screen butt when the image darkens while watching tv u can see it. Its like a bleeding discoloration. Me personally im taking mine back to either get my money back or new tv. From ur breaf description sounds like u have the same issue except yours came that way.if u look at my follows on here u will see pictures of my tv and the issue to my screen. I bought mine from best buy. So i got a thirty day store return warranty plus i purchased a 2 year warranty. So im going back and going to see what they are going to say. I advise u to probably do the same especially if u got warranty. As far as changing ur setting for HD picture quality with ur dish is to go through your menu options on the dish.i use comcast so mine is different butt im sure in a way the maybe might b in somewhat similar. With comcast theres a format button on the front of my box that i can press to change different format quality. If that dont give u what your looking for then see if you turn off your box while tv is on and then press menu on box and see if a user menu pops up if so then u should be able to change quality. You then can program it to be 1080 if ur using hdmi or components. One thing with comcast box is that i can make every channel 1080 bt the regular channels that dont broadcast that quality makes the picture smaller. So then u have to have HD channels to get 19080 quality. Butt u can get a good quality setting still with regular broadcast channels by overriding to 480p or to the best quality its puts out to that channel. Most broadcast channels set out a 480i or a a better HD 480p. Other than that you have to have HD channels and then ur box should automatically format to 1080u quality on the HD dish channels so you dont have to keep changing. Then when change ur channel back to standard broadcast channel it will automatically format to back to 480peither and so one as you change channels. Well hope it all helps and you got what you were looking for.
Turn the TV off with the front-mounted power button, not the
remote. Unplug the TV's power cord from the wall outlet. Let an hour
pass before plugging the cord back into the wall outlet. Turn the TV
back on with the front-mounted power button and wait until it has fully
restarted. Bring up a TV channel to see if the image being presented on
the LCD screen is no longer flickering. A momentary power surge can
cause the circuitry inside the LG-brand LCD TV to function erratically.
Unplug the video cable from the video connection on the back
or side panel of the LG TV. If more than one video cable is connected
to the TV, disconnect all of them. Disconnect the other end of the video
cable from the video source device that it's attached to -- a DVD or
Blu-ray player, or a satellite receiver or cable box. Blow off the
connections on the video source device and on the back or side panel of
the TV with bursts of compressed air. Reinsert one end of the video
cable into the video source device and the other end into the video
input that it was connected to. Turn the TV back on with is remote to
see if the picture is now free of flickering. A loose or partially
connected video cable can cause the LCD TV's screen to flicker when
presenting an image.
Turn the TV off and unplug its power cord from the wall
outlet. Place a power conditioner next to the wall outlet. Plug the
power conditioner's power cord into the wall outlet. Plug the TV's power
cord into one of the AC sockets on the power conditioner. Turn the
power conditioner on. Turn the TV on to see if the picture is now free
of flickering. The RF signals in the electric line that the LG TV is
drawing power from can cause flicking through interference patterns

Your problem is usually caused by a bad power supply. You should be able to do the repair yourself, if just requires replacing 6 capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to disassemble the monitor and repair the power supply board.
what you are experiencing is that your screen bulb is burnt.the screen bulb is what lights up your screen, its just like a fluorescent tube,when it is burnt it flickers for a while and it later goes off.. the only solution is to change the screen bulb as soon as you can
Sounds like your TV has a PIP (picture in picture) that allows your AVI (audio visual input) to be viewed simultaneously with your cable input. Check the manual for the correct buttons, but the one you're looking for says either PIP or AVI or something along those lines. Hope this helps
