Question about LG 37LP1D 37 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Sound but No Picture

Hi, I really hope someone can help. I've had a LG37LP1D for just over a year now, but I switched on the TV this morning, and there was no picture.

I've checked all the connections to the periherals (Digital Box etc.) and everything is fine as I have sound. I think I have a problem because the start-up screen of the TV does not appear.

I switch the TV on and and it makes the usual noises, but when I expect the LG logo to appear on-screen at start-up, it doesn't appear. The TV screen remains black where/when the logo should appear, then it gets slightly brighter when I think the actual TV picture should appear, but I still cannot see any real TV picture. (I assume this means the lamp is working fine etc.)

Please Help, Naz

    Sorry, in addition, if it helps, I cannot see any of the on-screen menus either. Thanks.

    Hi Bruce, thanks for trying, but that's definitely not the problem. I can't even see a menu to look for picture settings!

    Thanks anyway, Naz

    Occaisionally, when I turn on the TV and cable box, I get sound, but no picture appears on screen, nor does the upper right corner say that it's connecting to source as it usually does. I turn off and on a few times, then finnally I get the picture...don't want to wait too long if something is wrong, would like to get fixed while still in warranty.

Perhaps your remote is set to video recorder?  Try that first, and if no response, try calling up a menu on your TV and look for the Picture Settings.
Good Luck.

46in Vizio LCD HDTV distorted black picture when tv is turned on

Hi There are three things that can cause this problem. Your lcd screen, t-con board or the signal board. Most likelly in your case since you say it's only half the screen it's going to be your t-con board. You can try removing it and cleaning all the contacts and replacing it see if that helps. If that doesn't help then replace it. If that does not solve it then it's going to be your screen.

No picture No Sound?? Tube is fine....

Hello MagillaG, You are getting off cheap considering that this hum may be from the IHVT, hopefully the hum is not for that component. Since you have no picture and no sound that denotes a power supply probme which can be anything from a blown fuse to a bad IHVT or the horizontal output transistor. $180.00 is about right.
