LG TV Goes Into Hibernation (I Think)

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.

http://www.lcdparts.net/LCDTVInverterdetail.aspx?InverterOriginal=V144-001

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.

Good luck,

SOURCE: LG 42LG5 TURN ON TV PICTURE GOES BLACK

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.

Not booting but power button flash


Hi,

Since you didn't tell us what kind of laptop you have, or what system you're running, we can only guess.

If the power button is flashing, usually it means the laptop is asleep or in hibernation mode. Check your laptop's documentation on how to wake it up, or bring it out of hibernation. On some models, you can press and hold the power button to shut it down then power it on again.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response

Try updating all the drivers. Mainly the chipset and the video card drivers. If you have a wireless card, update it too.

I was using my laptop and fall asleep and in the morning i turn it of for some period i turn it on and the screen light could not come again


If the laptop was on for a very long time, and the ventilation slots where blocked (if it was on your bed) then it may have overheated and been damaged.
If the mains adapter is working ok and plugged in right, and you are getting no lights on the laptop, you will need to tak it to a repair shop

My vizio Tv keepssaying there is no RGB signal and the power will turn off. Any idea what this is or now i could fix it? thanks!


rgb is input that usually comes from a computer. if there is an extended amount of time, the computer goes into hibernation. also most newer tvs go into hibernation themselves if there is no input.

possible simple solution is that you move the mouse or hit a letter on your keyboard to "wake up the tv or computer"

would be nice if vizio put a rgb button on the remote. having to go to input then scroll down just sorta blows.

Sleep mode wakes up on it's own


turning off all the power saving items does not help this- it just ensures that it doesn't automatically power down your hard drive or shut off power to your monitor automatically when you aren't using it.
May I suggest Hibernation Mode as an alternative? this mode saves everything you are doing to disc and shuts your computer down completely. when you turn it back on, it will restore what you were last doing onto the screen, so you can pick up where you left off.
you can find more information on this and sleep mode from here: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/335c6a5d-0304-4af1-b135-6bf6c124dc111033.mspx#EZAAC

Hibernation mode


If you can find a wake-up key on the laptop, then press it. Sometimes the sleep and wake-up keys are the same (zZ). If you can't find anything like that key, then pressing the power button itself should bring it back online. hope this would do some help.
