Question about LG Televison & Video
When problem first appeared I could get TV to operate normally after complete power down (AC removed). This worked a couple of times but now I get only steady red LED. Screen is dark. Blue LED does not come on when pressing on/off button on button panel or using remote. Do not hear any relay clicks. Removed cover and examined the power supply board. No apparent capacitor failures. Both fuses good. Power supply is outputting 5V only. Do not see 12V or 20V. Checking at the P201 connector. I do see 4.21V on the ERROR pin (pin 22? it's between P-Dim and Inv on/off). Before I start replacing boards I wonder if there are other troubleshooting paths. Thanks for your advice.
Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your reply. I've attempted the hard reset several times without success. I'm not sure that the factory reset is an option since it does not appear that the tv ever gets beyond standby mode. The are 2 ports on the back panel - USB IN (service only) and RS-232. Would either of these be helpful in this situation? Again, thanks for your help. I'm just trying to determine if it's worth getting a replacement main pc board."
