Hi...your convergence IC's have gone bad.
These IC's operate at a very high temp, and usually only last 4-5 years.
If you remove the back of the set, you will want to look for the BIGGEST heatsink in there, on that heatsink, you will see 2 large IC's , probably STK392-040, or STK392-120's or something close...regardless - you can go on ebay to order the new ones, but MAKE SURE they are Genuine SANYO IC's and not counterfiet cheapies. the cheap ones may only last 2 months..
You will also need some "Heat transfer paste" - you can pick this up at radio shack.
Once you remove the old IC's, test all the large resistors near them.. pull one side of the resistor out of the board so you can check it out of circuit. they will usually have the value in Ohms, printed directly on the resistor, but you may have to use the resistor color code to find out what value they are....However, usually if there is any damage, the resistor will look like it has been HOT or fried. replace the IC's and any bad resistors, and you should be good to go.
If after replacing the IC's and any defective resistors, the convergence is still bad, make sure to use a multimeter to check ALL fuses on the boards, --- sometimes when the IC's go, they will take out a fuse to the convergence power supply. If you find any bad fuses, replace them accordingly!
Hope that helps u alot...

thank u!!!

Picture desapear but sound keeps on


LG = Little Good. Put you face next the the screen to see if you see anything moving. If you see movement, that means the backlight has stopped working. Some LG TVs have a board dedicated for backlight. $$$

My tv stopped showing picture but still apperears


If the whole screen is just white light, the the LCD controller (t-con) board may have gone out. Your TV can have more than one version of the boards inside.

My 32LG30 stopped showing picture but still has power on it is blinking red


Since the power indicator isn't turning blue, there is an issue that won't allow your power supply to come up. I would take this to a certified technician and have them check it out. Most likely there is a problem with the power supply itself.

My 32" LG takes about 3hrs to get a picture when turned on


Most likely you have capacitors in the power supply that have dried out or as we say vented. If your handy and want to replace the power supply I suggest " Shopjimmy.com ". If not, then take into your local service center for an estimate first.
