    I have the same problem. When I turn on the TV, the orange light appears and then turns to red after a few seconds. It remains on red, but no picture or sound.

    the blue power light comes on then you hear a clicking sound then shuts off. sometimes the tv comes on and only stays on for a few minutes

    When the tv is turned on there is sound but no picture. When turned on, the red light that indicates when the tv is off, blinks 4 times then stays off just as if the tv is on.

My LG TV red light won't turn on. although the plug fuse and the remote OK

Try manually pressing the power/standby button on the tv (side or bottom) the red light should appear, most modern tv's will turn on simply by pressing the channel up or down on the tv itself.. But unfortunately in most cases, this seems to be an internal surge and needs a professional to inspect..

You might want to check your cable card. It seems to mimic your problem. Try taking the card out and gently clean, with a dry cloth, the contacts/strip. Then take some "canned air" and blow out the card socket from the side to dislodge any accumulated debris.
