My LG TV has suddenly become darker all across the bottom of the screen (10cm strip) it still has colour but is darker. In left hand corner it is considerably darker and depending on what you are watching...

Hi; your TV has burn screen or comes from one image left on the screen for too long, it can get burned into the screen, making it visible at all times. You can actually eliminate most screen burns with the use of a PC computer and a black and white screen saver. This trick eliminates screen burn after a period of several minutes because the black and white screens flash quickly, removing all traces of color from the screen. This will eventually eliminate any burned images on the LCD screen. you can do it by creating a DVD picture slide with only black and white image. you can use a computer to make DVD picture slide first go to paint brush and draw only white then save as white.jpg. second burn it into nero or other dvd burner third play it to your DVD player connected to you LCD has to be played in full screen let the white image display on your HDTV for several hours or even overnight. It should remove any burned-in images or ghosts. hope this help...............

TV taken off wall mount and layed flat ( horizontal) for a few hours. When reinstalled only vertical lines appear? Audio OK

You will have to take it back down and make sure all of the wire connections are all tight inside.
Also you want to make sure nothing was over tightened when reinstalled causing any boards or anything to crack inside.
Remember there is high voltage inside.
I hope this helps, if not get back to us and we will farther try to help you.

Within an hour or so the tv blanks off, no picture only sound.

You are having a problem with overheating components that are breaking down after use. This unit should be return to dealer for servicing. The reason the television works after you turn it off the faulty component or components ( most likely a capacitors ) are some what self healing and can restore themselves for short periods of time.They will eventually fail and may take out other components with them. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Screen goes black tv stays on. Turn off and on and TV's fine.

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

My lg42LC2D made a loud clicking noise and just turned off. Turning it on the power light went green but no picute of sound Is it fixable at a reasonable cost.

maybe the tv has been moved or transported recently. Plasmas can't really be layed on it's back (horizontally) they should always be standing vertically.

But in a case where it has been tilted or layed on it's back, then it should be left standing vertically for atleast 24 hours (i recommend 48 hours to be sure) without plugging it in... no electricity what so ever running into it. ( lets the gases inside the tv balance) > afterwards just plug it in and hold your wallet.

plasma tv's have a tendancy of malfunctioning when it's "chemically imbalanced".

Dark burn in? at top and bottom of screen. TV is only 16m old.

PixelProtector is a tool for fixing stuck pixels, removing screen burn, correctly calibrating screens for optimal performance and gaining the best possible picture. Any large screen television is an investment. Poor set-up and calibration can degrade the quality of a television's image and severely threaten the life of the screen.
If you own a large plasma or LCD television with a DVD player and want to achieve optimum performance, PixelProtector is highly recommended.

3 ways to remove burn-in
1. PixelProtector for Removing Screen Burn.
2. downloading a free program called JScreenFix
Screen Burn Removal Using Your PC.
If you can hook your PC up to your screen burnt TV try this. Create a folder in 'My Documents' called 'Screen Burn'. I'm not joking keep reading. Now open up a picture editor like 'paint' available on all Windows PC's. When you run 'Paint' a blank white document is what you should have in front of you. That is exactly what you need. Select File – Save as and name your picture 'white'. Be sure to save it in the folder you just created.

Next you need to click on the 'black' section of the colour pallet at the bottom of the 'Paint' window. After you have selected black click on the 'Fill' icon (a tipped paint pot) on the left. Now simply click in the middle of your white picture and it should become totally black. Select File – Save as and name you picture 'black'. Again be sure to save it in the folder called 'Screen Burn'. You don't need paint any more so you can shut it down.

Now right click on the Windows desktop an select Properties – Screen Saver and using the drop down list select 'My Pictures Slide Show'. Now to configure the slide show. Click Settings and configure as follows. Slide the bar to 'More' so that pictures change frequently. Slide the next bar to 'Larger' so pictures fill the whole screen. Now click the 'browse' button and find the folder you made called 'Screen Burn'. In the next set of options:- Check 'Stretch Small Pictures', Un-check 'Show File Names', Check 'Use Screen Transitions' and finally un-check 'Allow Scrolling Through Pictures With The Keyboard'. Save the options.

Different versions of Windows might have slightly different configuration options but as long as the result is a completely filled (no borders), alternating white and black screen with no writing then it will probably help.

Now set your screen saver to 1 minute and leave the keyboard and mouse well alone.

As with the 'snow' and 'signal pattern' leave this for a while to see some results. If you use your TV for the PC then it might be a good idea to use this as your regular screen saver and run it frequently.

The only snag is the headache of connecting the PC up and the fact that removal technique will not be running at your screens native resolution.

Got 2 faint white lines on screen on philips 42 lcd ambilight

Sounds like plasma burn in. I'm fairly positive this TV has a white out burn in removal in the menu somewhere. Look for it. It should be a program that makes colored static all over the screen or a white scrolling bar followed by black fading into white again. Run it for an hour or so. If that doesn't fix it, there's not much else you can do.

2 fades black lines in the screen

You have to connect it to your computer. Then set it as 2nd monitor (note, you'll have to set the screen size correctly for it to show up.. your tv book will tell you what it can handle.. mine is 1360x768...

Then, use your monitor set up on the computer to set that one to all white. Brightness to full, Contrast, etc...

Or, you can create a picture in paint or photoshop or any graphics program that is all white. Make it bigger than the monitor size. and slide it over there. That simple.. :)

Note, you have to let it 'burn' for quite a long time.. (many hours) You may want to call the tech support and find out what would be safe..

Hope that helps you.. let me know..
