    We have the same problem!!!



    An electronic technician diagnosed the problem as the "Light Engine " needs to be replaced....approximate cost of parts and labour is $ 1200 plus!!!!!!!



    The technician said this model of LG has this problem and are not going to do anything about it.



    His advise was to buy a new TV from another company, as cost to rtepair this one are prohibitive!!!!!

We had the same problem on ours about 2 years ago. Paid to have a new light engine installed. It is now starting to fail. However we did have the unit on for about 12 hours a day everyday for 5 years total. Won't be buying a new light engine this time.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

Blue tint on sides of picture


Check for any cold solders and do dry soldering on the PCB and try changing the flyback, it looks like the flyback is dying. Try this.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

Blue tint


We have had our RU-60SZ30 for almost 3 years. After 13 months it did the same thing, LG covered the cost of the part,($3000.00) according to their certified repair center, but they charged us $500.00 for labor. Now today, 15 months later it is doing it again. I just got off the phone with LG and they say "too bad, you're out of warranty" So my TV that I paid $4000.00 for, has gone out twice in less than 36 months and LG says, "Oh well" After searching the web I found a law firm in New York that looks like they are putting together a class action suit regarding our model. Go to WWW.ZLK.COM/ZENITHTV.HTML and fill in the questionaire.
