Yes it is possible to repair/replace depending on availability of parts. I may be able to better assist you with an exact model number. I assume the tv is out of warranty. I would suggest you pick up the service manual for the television as well. This is a must when doing any type of DIY repair. If your not fully confident I would also suggest a professional peforming the repair. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,

How can I fix a 42lg20-um with a faded screen?

The faded screen(if you mean faint image) is due to failed backlight inverter board. THe backlight is sealed behind the LCD paneland lights up the image . Replacing the inverter board should resolve the problem. In sets of this size there are usually master and slave inverters. Let me know if you wish to fix it yourself so that I can give you the instructions.

Bad backlight inverter on 42" RCA LCD

Does the backllght go out after a few seconds? Could still be a lamp or something else on the inverter boards. You could try used inverter boards from the same set with other problems (broken screen), Or a complete working backlight from another set but very delicate operation to swap the LCD display from one panel to another.
