Question about HP LC3040N 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Screen goes bright after 1 hour of use

After an hour after turning on the LCD TV, it goes very bright, and the picture is not viewable. I turn off the TV, and turn it back on, and it's fine again for more than an hour before it does it again. Also the remote is not working. Put new batteries in, but to no avail. But it works occasionally when it wants to.

    I have the same problem. TV picture quality is excellent when first turned on. After 30 to 45 minutes, it begins to degrade. Seems to get brighter and brighter so that the images eventual become blurred and is basically unwatchable.
