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.

Re: Dark Screen and flickering black screen

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!
