Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Dark Screen and flickering black screen

Had this lcd for about a week now, worked great then last night the screen just got real dark. It also started going to a blank screen every 10 seconds or so, for a second or 2. then it would get bright again and look normal, but then goes dark again, ver unconsistent coloring without making any adjustments. I have not changed any of the cables connections or anything tied to the system since day 1 when I hooked up.

I am having the same problem and I think it is the bulb in the TV or the board that the bulb is on. Only had mine for 4 weeks!! Apparently this is a common problem with LG TV's that occur as often as 3 times a year with a minimum cost of £290 just for the bulb!! Wish I had known that before I bought it!

Would recommended contacting the store you bought if from and ask them to repair it seeing as it is so new, I am awaiting the engineer at present!

Screen has been flickering, does not go black but gets really dark. Sometimes if I tap it or move it is stops. Is my screen going bad?

sounds like a loose connection somewhere. find a local computer repair shop. Often those guys can diagnose a common problem just by glancing at the symptoms. GeekSquad is great but costs lots.

Screen is too dark

If you can see the icons but the screen is mostly black ( you have to look real close to see the desktop or windows logo) most likely you need a new lcd inverter. I repaired a 1300 series laptop, that had a dark screen, not black, just darker, and the fix was a new motherboard. That would be the second option if replacing the lcd inverter doesnt work. Lcd inverter is about $10 Motherboard is around $50-65 for that model on ebay.

Monitor going black

HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.

Hope it helps =)
