That part # sounds more to me like a model #. Have you tried unplugging unit for 1 minute and then turning it back on. Then try turning brightness all the way down. Let me know. Thank you Jay

Lg TV would not turn on, no stand by light. I purchased and installed a power supply. The TV turns on, has audio but an extremely faint picture


Your problem is inside the TV - probably the video driver board or components of it. You also could have a dead fluorescent tube - that is the part that illuminates the screen. LCD displays require a light source. If this is an LED TV then you need a video driver board inside the back of the TV - if you don't know what you are doing, DO NOT OPEN THE BACK OF ANY TV. Take it to a repair shop. If it is under warranty, turn it in for service.

I have an element 37in. flx-3710 tv. lately whwn i turn it on the screen stays blacks and flickers for a few minutes untileventually the picture appears.however the picture is either washed out or so dark,...


ldq781, I think you or electronics technician should investigate the units internal "switch-mode-power-supply/cold cathode-fluorescent lamp electronic ballast circuit(inverter) for "failed" "swollen" electrolytic filter capacitors and or "poor quality" soldering of the electronic components to the copper foil traces of the printed circuit board(power supply board) The first thing to do is visit YOUTUBE for video clips of lcd monitors being repaired for these typical types of "failures" which are most common to both types (monitors and lcd tv's) After you do your research then return here and leave additional reply if you still need help. 12fixlouie
