Static line at top is a problem with the broadcast input. many cable boxes and satellites create this because they dont quite fill the true resolution that the tv is capable of. the green splotches sound like overheating of the lcd lamps. id return it for a new one.

I have a 2 year old LG LCD TV (model 42LG60) and I am having problems with the screen. I turn it on and everything is fine for a few minutes and then the screen goes to red or green lines that are fuzzy....


Not really a solution, sorry, but I've got the very same problem. I haven't noticed the time before tv faults, but nontheless, it greenscreens or like in your case, redscreens as well. I've been told to open the back, which I did to check the status of the capicitors, which I've done. But, the capacitors "seem" fine. No bulging or popped tops. So, I'm at a stand still...not sure what to do at this point. If someone gives you solution, I sure would appreciate your forwarding it on to me. Thanks. Robert

Static noise and blurry screen


You need to take your TV set to Service Center, because the inner parts, especially the flyback transformer, been damaged or worse, the connector broken, that's why you can hear the noise.

My kid ran a magnet across the screen now there's a purple blotch along the top of the screen.


The TV needs to be degaussed.

There is an automatic degausser built in but it may NOT be strong enough.

Try this: Turn off the TV and let cool for 10 minutes. Then turn on for one minute.

Repeat the previous sequence until screen is clear of blotches.

The cooling period re-arms the degausing circuit.

If this doesn't fix it adequately, you need to find a TV repairman that has a degausing coil... these are getting a bit rare now. It would take him ten minutes with the coil to fix it.
