LG42LW450U wIll not switch on

When I push the power button, the light is red. The red light will then get brighter, pulse once, then dim, then get brighter once more. The light then turns white as normal but will then switch off. I've had the PSU out to have a look at the capacitors but cannot find any that have burst or leaking. I can hear the relay clicking on and off as it normally would. I've given the PSU a clean in the hope that this might be the cause but no cigar. Can anyone give any advice on what might be the cause before I go and buy a new PSU. Oh yeah, the TV is 18 months old

    I tried a new PSU but the problem persists which indicates it is coming from the mainboard. Now, It has been quite difficult to source the mainboard for the 42LW450U, in fact, I've not yet been able to buy one. However, I've noticed that the mainboard layout of the 32LW450 is exactly the same - minus the side metal bracket. Every chip is in the same place, to anyone they would think it is the same board. What I need to know before splashing out on one is whether or not this one will work.

The problem could be something other than a dirty PSU, such as failed components that can't be detected by visual inspection.

The headlights pulse while the engine is running

Pulse? you mean the elevation mechanism is oscillating? or the lights go dim and then bright like you were constantly on the dimming switch? if this, there is a dimming switch/relay that operates from a single pulse from your driver's dimming switch. I am guessing you have a cross over from power supply and engine vibration does the pulse. Follow the headlight wire back from to a little box, probably metal. Check all connections and possible crossover. It could be within the switch and going haywire. You may be able to listen to the continuous clicking. You may be able to rebuild it, but may not be worth it. So buy a new one. If it's the elevation mechanism, there may be a similar relay for the motor but connected to the lights on switch. There may be a faulty relay, or again viabrating donnection with a make break operation.

Back light dim when start up then get brighter


When the ignition is first turned on (but before the engine is started), the light is running just off the battery, which may not be fully charged.

When you engage the starter, this is the biggest power draw there is from the battery, causing the light to dim even more.

Once engine is running (if everything is working right), the alternator powers the light, as well as everything else.
In fact, if may/may not get brighter as you rev the engine.

LG 17LX1R flashing red LED - TV won't power up

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Hampton bay model uc 7083t light very dim when turned on

You probably have one or the other of the remotes pictured below:


In both cases, if you press and HOLD the button labeled "Light / Dimmer" (top remote) or the top round button with the light bulb icon on it (bottom remote), the intensity of the lamp will become brighter until it is at maximum and then become dimmer until it almost turns off . If you continue to hold the button, it will begin to get brighter once again. Pressing the button quickly simply turns it off when it is on, and on when it is off.

The buttons on the remote leave a bit to be desired as far as how well they work. You should keep an eye on the red LED indicator while pressing any button. If it fails to light the command is never sent. If it stops lighting while holding a button in, (to send a dimming or brighten command to the lamp) the command stops being sent and the intensity of the lamp no longer changes. I have found that sometimes I have to press the edge of the button to get them to work. If yours is giving you trouble - you might try that, too.

I hope this helps & good luck!
