LG TV Doesn't Turn Normally

When I switched my LG TV on the screen is blank although the light on the bottom panel shows that the TV is on. It seems I've to leave the TV on (with the blank screen) for several minutes then switch it off and wait for a minute or so and switch it on again for the screen to light up and picture to show. It's like the screen needs 'warming up' time. Can you assist? Many thanks!

There is probably a bad capacitor on the power board, I had the same thing happen to my 42LB1DR after 2 years. T.V. would turn on and white power light would blink, no pictue and no sound. If your'e a diy'er, it is not that hard of a fix. Take all the covers off of the back of the tv(UNPLUGGED!!!), then look at all the capacitors on the power board. lcd_repair_4_bad_capacitors_lg.jpg
These are the capacitors, look to see if any of them appear to have a bump on the top of them. They are supposed to be flat, you can also tell if one of them has gone bad if there is an oily substance on the metal cover that was removed. If one of them is in question, carefully remove the board, and take it to an electronics store to have them sotter ?sp on a new capacitor. It ended up costing me around $40.00 to have this done. Good luck and if you are not comfortable trying this, than take it to a repair shop, but I was quoted around $450 to take the T.V. in. No Thanks

SOURCE: Lg Plasma Display settings keep switching

When you boot up your tv for the first time, you get to choose between home and shop-mode.
In your case, he TV is set to "shop-mode".
Then it will go back to factory settings after 5-10 minutes. (so that customers won't mess up the settings all the time)

So change the settings from shop to home, and your problem is fixed!

We have same TV. Your tv is trying to go through your DVD recorder channel. Just press D/A button (top left hand corner of remote TWICE and it will go back to transmitting through TV.

First you have to check if the back light of the panel works fine . if it's okay ..
Then probably you have a problem with the T-con.
It's a small board at the back bottom side of the panel . Connected to the main board by means of LVDS cable .

My LG TV red light won't turn on. although the plug fuse and the remote OK


Try manually pressing the power/standby button on the tv (side or bottom) the red light should appear, most modern tv's will turn on simply by pressing the channel up or down on the tv itself.. But unfortunately in most cases, this seems to be an internal surge and needs a professional to inspect..

Remove the battery from the back and then put it back in. This resets the TV and should get it to work again.
