Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

LD 37LC7D I bought this tv 2 weeks ago and had it hung on the wall and powered it up. At this point, before having Directv hooked up, the unit would stay on power standby (red light on when unit not on) and start up easily when I hit the remote or unit's "power" button. Now, since having Directv hook up, the unit will power up intially, but once shut off for more then ten minutes or so, the standby (red light) power isn't on and I can't get the tv to turn on. If I unplug it for awhile - 30 minutes or more - it comes back on. I've read the manual 10 times over and can't seem to figure out a solution...HELP!

Re: LD 37LC7D

This set has a modification that needs to be done. It will also start turning on by itself and changing channels rapidly. It's two weeks old. Take it back to the Retailer or if that is not an option contact LG at 1-800-243-0000 to get a local servicer in your area.

Medion lcd hd 31.5 inch tv won't turn on

I bought one also from ALDI for my son's Xbox 360, it is only 3 weeks in use and I have the same problem. The red led is on, indicating that it is in standby mode and recieving power but I can't turn it on either by pressing the power on button on the TV it's self or the on button on the remote. This started happening a few days ago and it's totally random. I found that if you unplug the TV from the power point or alternatively switch off the power point for a minute, than power it on again it will "WORK AGAIN" for a while. Like I said it is random, eventually it will return to the not being able to be switched on state at which time you will have to repeat the process. So thus, this is not really a solution. I am about to return the TV for a refund, and it's a shame because otherwise it's not too bad. and looks OK too.

Need to find out where power cord for Westinghouse ld-3255vx goes

You have to use an AC adapter to this set, which will be already been supplied with this set, when you bought it. Connect the adapters' output to the "DC IN" connetion socet at the back of the TV.

Trying to find out what my tvs settings should be on to hook up m

Have you tried channel 3 or the video input channels.
The Tv only needs the one channel that the signal from the box is sent on.
All the viewing channels will be changed through the satellite box.

I have to unplug the TV occasionally to get the picture to come on at start up.

I have same problem on Sharp Aquos LCD.  I unplug/turn off circuit and then turn back on and it works.  Otherwise no picture, just a light and light goes off.

Power went out on LG lcd tv

Those units usually have a main board that all the functions are centralized on. If the LED comes on then your power supply is operating (at least no shorts). But the main board will most likely be the problem.
