    Do you get any sort of standby or failure blinks? If not, the power supply is bad.

SOURCE: OUR 11 MONTH OLD 42" LG PLASMA WONT TURN ON THIS

Hello,

There is a problem with the power panel/pack of the television. It must have gotten burnt that is why your television is not coming up. If the green dot does not appear when you use a DVD player to watch a movie on the television, then the problem is not from the television, but if the green dot appears all the time, then it simply means there is a cold joint. Which means, there is melted lead from a panel in the tv.

But since it is under the warranty period, it will be best you take it back to the dealer that supplied it to you, because it is less than a year and it is giving faults,

All the best.

Take care and good luck

SOURCE: my LG 42" LCD turns

first your going to need to disconnect any wires from the tv. then unplug the tv from its powersource (ex- outlet) then make sure no power is still stored within its capacitor by pressing the power button for five seconds. then lay down a plastic mat underneath the tv. then your going to need a phillips head screw driver, an allen wrench and a small rubber hammer. turn the tv around and using the screw driver remove the screws from the back of the tv, on your particular tv i believe there are 12 screws in all. carefully remove the back panel of the tv. then using the allen wrench unscrew all of the screws that hold the boards and electrical components to the front panel of the tv. remove all components from the tv. (they should all come out as one entity) now take all of the components and place on the plastic mat you have previously placed on the floor. take the rubber mallet and beat the **** out of the components and the board. once it is in snickers fun size pieces replace back onto the front panel. then carefully (without damaging any parts) put the back panel of the tv on and put the 12 screws back in place. carefully wrap the entire television in bubble wrap and personally take back to the store and order the store supervisor to refund your purchase. he will inspect the tv and showing what a horrible job that the mexicans did at the assembly facility, he will gladly give you another LG 42" and an HDMI cable for your troubles...

no, honestly go to the options menu on the tv, check o make sure its not on a sleep timer or stand by mode, if the tv has been dropped, either by you our the store in which you purchased it, it could have moved a small coil that tells the tv to turn off (makes the tv think its over-heating once it reaches a small temperature) or simply call the manufacturer and ask wtf is up.

SOURCE: LG 42" tv LCD pannels inside tv have a cracked

The set needs a new LCD if it looks cracked and swirly, the colors all run together in the area of the crack don't they! If it is cracked it can't be fixed. you can replace the lcd but I am not sure if a warranty will cover a cracked screen or not. You will need to contact LG and be very nice to them and see if they will honer the warranty on this.

My LG 42LV4400 has a red light in the bottom left corner but it will not turn on.


hello!
2 month and already quit? OK: first thing to do is to unplug TV off the power strip or wall outlet. Wait for a few minutes and plug the set back into the power source. Try to turn on the set manually, by touching sensors or buttons on control panel. some TVs have push buttons, some touch sensors. If your TV was set to "auto power on" mode, then don't touch anything after plugging set in. That's the only action you can do to "revive" the set. If you will be able to turn set on manually and "free standing" without any external connections, except power cord, check your remote control unit. 95% of consumers turn on their sets via "clickers". In case of complete failure, you might have month or 10 month left of factory warranty, depend on price you paid. Use it a.s.a.p! If needed. There is no magic button to heal broken circuitry.
Good luck,
Alex.

Red/green light keeps blinking.


This issue is related to a bad/failed power supply inside your TV.

Call LG to see if your TV is still in warranty. 800-243-0000

If not in warranty, the power supply is about $225.

Good luck. I do hope that I have helped you.

Are you under warranty? Chances are real good that you need the signal board....the one with the rca jacks and rf connectors. This may be pricey $$$$$ but will surely repair the problem.

Power will not stay on


With a problem like this, I would use the warranty for the TV.
It's possible a circuit board failure has occurred and the TV is automatically turning itself off to protect it from further damage. Is normally called " Protection Mode " for most TVs.

Being that it's 2 months old, it should be under warranty regardless. I would recommend contacting the store of where it was purchased and have them help you with the warranty issue.

LG TV completely dead


Hi,

I'll think your power supply is down.
Since your tv is 15 month old, you've still got waranty left.
Just contact you supplier or LG service.
