Lg tv take too long to start

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given.

Cannot get full screen picture. seems like I still have a 36 inch tv. It is a 42 inch LG plasma hdtv

It seems like you're expecting a 16:9 ratio picture. If you're sending a 4:3 ratio signal to the TV, you'll get a 4:3 ratio picture. An option would be to use the remote and set the TV to a 16:9 ratio picture, but that'll stretch the picture and make everything look fat. Another option would be to use the remote and zoom in, but that'll chop off the top/bottom of the picture a bit. Either case would be annoying. Some make matters even more annoying, some programs are broadcasted in a 16:9 ratio signal, but the actual picture is really 4:3 ratio. So...... as long as the pictures don't look skinny, fat, or chopped off, just accept it. If you're really that picky, just watch new Blu Ray movies only.

A simple question - My new 42" LG tv is fine -

You should be able to change the aspect ratio to fit the size of your screen. This will be the 16:9 4:3 16:10 settings.

You can access these by going to MENU---> PICTURE -----> Select ratio that works----> exit out and watch TV.

IF this will not fix it you need to look into the signals being fed to the TV as sometimes they can have a funny effect on the output picture. Some cable boxes will alter the picture and then it won't come out right on the TV. If it is all inputs doing this tho then changing just the Aspect ratio on the TV should solve the problem.

The left side of the LG 42" plasma TV has no

try to check the aspect ratio and input source to make sure they are correct. for the aspect ratio, make sure it is set either at 16:9 ratio or try the zoom options. if it is set at zoom, you can move the screen left to right or up or down through the zoom settings. make sure you are also using the correct cable. hope this helps

How do I get my tv to 1080p?

Unless you mistyped your model number, your TV has a resolution of 1366 by 768p. This limits you to 720p but the TV will interpret up to a 1080i signal. On the zoom, you need to look at the menu and the remote for the aspect ratio. On the remote, just press the Ratio button multiple times until you get the right one (4:3, 16:9, Zoom1, Zoom2). It's also in the Options Menu.

I hope this helps.

I have an 42LG50 and the picture is now a smaller box on the screen and the manual is now help in enlarging the picture, any ideas?

You possibly have the screen set to the 4:3 ratio. On the remote control use the aspect ratio button to toggle through the different size screen formats eg 16:9 etc. this will enlarge the picture to fill the screen.

LG 32'' LCD TV aspect ratio self switching

I have an LG LCD TV with the same problem.
The solution is to go to
And select HOME rather than STORE on initial setup.
Mine was set to store as it was a display model.
That means that whatever picture setting you make they will reset after 10 minutes.
