Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. The most common problem are the power supply for the screen itself. Most manufactures call it a Blacklight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Machine displays UE when spinning and turns off the machine, this occurs even when the machine is empty


UE means uneven for LG washing machine. Could you please using water level to make sure it is level. May I know if the drum is stable while spinning by not giving any banging sound. Used to happen to my LG direct drive, and solved by replacing the suspension that supporting the drum holder. Now all good like new.

I am getting alert of UE for fully automaticatic washing manchine


According to Lg Ue error code is an unbalanced load error code or uneven load error code you can also click this link from the LG site which describes some ways to alleviate the problem of the UE error code http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=800. I have also found that if these ways do not remove the problem you may have to open the unit and check the damper struts that attach to the tub assembly. If one of these struts were not to be attached or have broken, or came away from the tub assembly this would also cause the UE error code as well with the unit. Also if you remove the rear panel you will see the stator which is basicly the motor as well as an rps sensor which helps the stator to rotate. I also have found that in some cases the center bolt that holds the stator in place sometimes unloosens and unscrews as well also causing this UE error code. So you would first try the methods that LG has listed in order to alleviate the UE error code and if there methods did not work then you would first look at the stator center screw to assure that it is tightened and in place. And secondly if the stator screw were in proper place and tight then you would look at the damper struts in the unit lastly. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks

61" plasam TV will not turn on


This is one of two problems, Bad capacitors in the power supply or your Y Sustain board has failed, I would go for the first, take the back off your tv and look for swollen or domed shaped capacitors on the power supply, They may also leak a brown liquid like substance.
Replace all that you can see and this should cure the fault.

LG 42in LCD Television - turning unit off


The amount of standyby power consumtion is minimal. The only way to turn it off completly is to disconnect the power from the TV. This will however increase your start up time when you want to use the TV.
