Question about Televison & Video
I have an LG TV which I turn on when I go to bed and inevitably fall asleep while it is on. When I wake a couple of hours later I find the picture and sound are off (the screen is black) but the power (blue light) is still on. What can I do about this?
This could be two things 1- a power saving mode in the TV... go into settings on the TV, look for either "power save settings" or "energy star settings" go in and turn that off. 2- it could be a screen saving mode because the TV has lost signal...some HDDVR receivers such as Direct TV DVR etc...have their own power saving mode, after a couple our of inactivity, they turn off, which kills the signal to the TV...so the TV shuts down because it has no signal coming to it.... if that is the case, you need to go into the settings on your cable/satellite settings and also look for a "power save mode" or "energy star saving", and turn that off.

SOURCE: my tv has sound but no picture
If you haven't bricked this unit yet, or paid Syntax/Olevia's highway-robbery price to fix it (and pay STUPID prices to ship it to and fro), there is hope. Despite what Syntax and others say, it IS a replace-able part that can help get your TV to last at least another 12-24 months. During that time, you can save for a new, more reliable and reputable TV.
This is a well-known (at least those of us who had ours fail before yours) symptom of a bad backlight power inverter, which, for the LT30HV is a pain in the arse to get to (it's behind the main power distribution board and motherboard w/Pixelworks chip). If you can take apart a tower computer and install I/O cards, you can do this. These parts are made cheaply in China with 64 weld points that fail 100% of the time - and many other 'name' brand LCD TVs use this exact same CCFL backlight inverter. I'm working on posting the procedure somewhere on the net. The procedure shown in MoniServ's website is on a Kreisen set, which looks FAR more easily serviced than the LT30HV.

This could be 1 of a few things here. Without opening up your set and trying to look at voltages or indiciator lights I couldn't tell you exactly without some more info.
Without looking at it myself here are my thoughts and where I would first look at.
It may be a main board because:
1) Main board processes all your audio/video signals. Bad main board means bad video processing. Could do that. Especially if the main board is not sending the right signal or a bad signal to the rest of the boards so they don't do their jobs.
It may be a power supply because:
1) Power supply is well, the power supply. If it's sending inadaquete voltage to the main board you may not be recieving enough juice to keep that main board doing your video processing or further up the line keeping enough juice flowing to your TCon board to keep it telling things where to go and what to do. The power supply sends voltages to your Ballast board(controls your lights) and to your main board through which power is supplied to your TCon board via a LVDS line and a +12/+16V signals. If the power supply isn't pumping out enough juice to keep the TCon or Main Board running, it could be a problem. By the same token it could be that your P/S isn't sending power out to your ballast board.
It could be a TCon because:
1) If the TCon is bad, you won't get your pictures. This could be the TCon board itself or the LVDS cable from your TCon to your Main. However, with few exceptions, if it's a bad TCon you're looking at a total panel replacement.
It could be a ballast board because:
1) The Ballast Board controls the lighting behind the LCD screen. If this isn't working right you won't be seeing much of anything without that back lighting. If this is bad, it's a panel replacement. These are not field replaceable items by LG.
Based on the symptoms, without more data or a eyes-on view of it, I would say you're most likely looking at a Main Brd or PSU problem.
