Question about LG 55lv5300 55" Led Hdtv 1080p 120hz

1 Answer

Picture darker on top 2/3 of screen

My screen is only dark on the top. I have tried several times to clean the "ribbons" with an eraser but its still there. The manufacture date is Aug 2011 and LG customer service states that its only covered for a year. I see no bulging capacitors, nothing leaking, And overall clean inside. The problem exists with nothing hooked up in addition to anything such as Xbox, dvd player and cable hooked up. Help please.

SOURCE: Picture too large

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
For example:
Some Motorola Cable receivers need to be set up in the menu to go to a wide screen or zoom mode when an analog signal is detected. There may be a format button on the remote.
Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Stops Playing: screen freezes

My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.

I don't know if you got your answer already, but I've had the same issue, and it seems to be temporarily fixed if you switch your phone off and on again. Good luck!

SOURCE: I can't get my lg xenon to pair w/ any bluetooth

Try searching a new devise and it should recognize it either that or your bluetooth headset is dead or out of range meaning that you need to be closer to it when you search.

SOURCE: LG 47LC7DF Green Light Blinks 16 Times - No Picture or Sound

The lights indicate what the issue is. Kind of like your check engine light in your car tells you something is wrong with the engine.

I have a 52 inch Samsung TV, on the screen have solid, color vertical lines on the right, about 1/8 wide, on the same time the half of screen blink on the right too.


not knowing the model... i will try to help with this common samsung issue, if i can. / unplug the tv, and wait a few minutes to avoid shocks. / remove back panel. you will see several ribbon connectors, (about an 1" to 1 1/2" wide) usually near the bottom. / carefully remove the ribbon (ONE AT A TIME) and clean the contacts GENTLY with a pencil eraser. (DO NOT use chemicals) / reinsert the ribbons and try the tv. // vertical stripes are almost always the result of poor contact between ribbon and socket. / NOTE!. you can do a quick test before opening the set by [carefully!!!!] twisting the screen and watch to see if the vertical stripes change or disappear. / if the stripes change, bet on it being the ribbon contact problem.//// hope this helps, it has worked on a number of TVs.------Jay

Hi Brandon,
I am afraid that the dark spot in the screen is not repairable. Manage as long as you can or go for a new tv.

Why is the picture on my RCA tv goes slowly darker as i watch it?


Contact any service technician. Its CRT base connector socket, or, LOT is faulty. This is not a user repairable fault. Replacement to any one among component stated above, or both, might need replacement. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Vertical half screen gets darker


There's a board in the middle of the set ( back taken off) near the bottom of the screen. It has 2 flat ribbon cables that go to the screen. It is under a metal heat sink. That's the board that's causing the problem. www.shopjimmy.com has the board for a very reasonable price. Takes about 15 minutes to change.

At start up my viewsonic va1912wb display blinks several times then i can see the picture but it is dark almost unreadable. Today it went darker than yesterday. HELP!


If it is dark due to brightness adjustment, get that adjusted. Usually when you adjust the brightness by pressing the menu button, the menu screen would not be dark. If everything is dark dark dark and you can only see some display but in very pitch darkness, then your monitor is a goner, backlit for the monitor is dead, and your monitor will need to be replaced. You can fix the backlit tubing, however it is risky, and expensive, and would cost less if you bought a replacement.

I have Sony bravia XBR and right side the screen is more darker and have lost color. Any idea. please help if u can.


my guess is that the right side of the t-con board/LCD control unit if failing. this board controls video drive on screen 2 processors on the circuit 1 for right the other for left. if this does not fix then the problem is going to be the display it-self which is not cost effective to repair. Hope this helps some.

Also before replacing anything clean all ribbon cables between main board and lcd control unit and between the lcd control and panel.

can clean with pencil eraser. board location

main unit - circuit to the left or middle usually have inputs on it.
LCD control- top and center with 2-4 ribbons leaving the top and going to the screen.

hope this helps.

Dark Picture after being on a short time


You should clean the pins on the end of the picture tubes. Use a piece of sand paper or emory cloth as the pins are probably tarnished.

Picture is getting darker and darker


if the tv has never been service before you could have dust on the 3 tubes,this will decrease the brightness to the screen. try taking the front or back off & see if you can see the top of the picture tubes. remember to unplug the tv & to clean spray the cleaner on the colth , then clean the tup of the tube. never spary on the tube itself. hope this works for you.
