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

Re: Sound but No Picture

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.

First of all I would contact the company and see if there is a recall on the set as this sounds dangerous and could burn someone's house down. If there isn't a recall I would request one be open at You may save someone's life by doing so. As for the TV it can be a number of things. If there is a recall the TV should be fixed by the manufacturer for free. If not get a quote from the local repair shop and see if it's even worth fixing or just buying a new one (OF A DIFFERENT BRAND) lol. Also please include the manufacturer and the model# next time you ask a FixYa question.

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.

Having worked with Pioneer for many years, I would say you have a video fault. It is not likely, in my view, to be the plasma display itself as they go like a dull light bulb as they age, not into lines. I would check the video processing after the 135 volt ramp supply fom the power supply.
Hope this helps.
