37LG5010 screen flickery and distorted after short time.

Hi, I have just bought a graded 37" lcd tv (37LG5010). I am using the built in freeview and have an xbox 360 attached using component video connection. The TV is great to start with, but after about 15 to 30 minutes the image breaks up, goes dark in some places and becomes distorted and flickery. When the tv is turned off and on again it is ok for about 5 or 10 minutes then the same happens again. This affects the TV menus as well so can't be anything to do with reception or connection of wires. I am going to call tomorrow but have recently read several reviews that the shop i bought it from ( do not honour guarantees, so I am pre empting this and trying to find out how much it will cost for me to get it fixed myself. Thanks very much!

SOURCE: ACER LCD monitor no image, appears white color only

Quickly go to the Acer website and check FAQ's and while there also find out how to get an RMA to return it. My guess is you have a bad monitor. At $200 roughly for a replacement I would hustle. I am assuming you got nothing but a white screen but did get video on your TV.

Try to use a HDMI cable, your component cables may not be usable with your TV.

SOURCE: powering on my tv

Dear smmmobil,
The problem lies with the SMPS (switch mode power supply ) of your TV. The smps board needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Philips 46-inch Rear Projection with bowed image?? slight distortion

You have a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms. 

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when when using the convergence menu. 
Screen is bowed in but stationary.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together a kit for your exact model. The kit inlcludes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc. Everything you need to fix it yourself. Its an easy fix.

Hi i have a Sony Bravia KDL37EX403U 37'' Freeview HD LCD TV 1271381 and it is buzzing all the time the tv is on

This is a common problem with this screen, and is caused by a faulty inverter on the panel. Newer ones have a modified part and the fault is recognised by Sony as a manufacturing fault. Therefore you should have no problem having it repaired.

Digital channels have stopped working, only blue screen!

Try resetting the TV:

  1. Switch on TV and switch to any analogue channel.
  2. On the TV: Press and hold the MENU button.
  3. Menu screen will appear on the display.
  4. Do not release the MENU until the menu screen disappears.
  5. TV will go blank for about 60 seconds and then display initial set up screen.
  6. Follow the on-screen prompts to re-tune the TV.
If this does not work then the problem is likely to be a loose ribbon cable or main small signals board inside the TV.

no, the tv has a setting that auto changes the screen ratio. you can turn the auto screen ratio off in the settings section. Once you have turned it off put ratio to 16:9 and it will solve the problem.
