It sounds like you may have a bad Control Board, especially if the problem is intermittent. There are dozens and dozens of posts from folks with this model LG. Usually the probles starts with red or blue verticle stripes on the screen, but in many cases the picture will go black, become pixilated, or turn various colors. Here's a link to a site that has a description, photos, and the exeriences of dozens of folks who've fixed the problem: http://greenrenovation.wordpress.com/du-42px12x-red-stripe-repair/#comment-394

SOURCE: Blank screen, cannot get menu to display, but sound works

Does the lcd screen have a glow to it ? Or is it really dim if u get real close to screen u can see images moving ?
it it has a glow to it you panel lighting is fine but you control board is bad. If you have a dark screen and see faint images you panel back lighting is out u can check the power with a meter at the connection to inverter board on panel.

verify in customer menu, installation, software upgrade, current software info that software is 1.5.0.0. if not upgrade by downloading from p4c.philips.com website and upgrade via usb memory stick. if upgrade is successful and menu still pops up would be a small signal board issue

Try leaving the TV unpugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

SOURCE: Turn tv on. green light solid display, no picture or sound

The flashing green light is likely indicative of a self-test failure, indicating the TV has detected some sort of internal fault. With no picture or sound, one strong suspect is the power supply. Flat-panel TV's have an internal DC power supply that converts the inbound AC current, and when these fail, or are unable to supply a minimum level of power to the set, it can behave as you describe, providing only enough power for the green light to illuminate.

Toshiba 32a43 32' picture garbled mess


If you can get the tv to display the blue blackground(usually happens when there is no antenna or cable feed to tv) check to see if the whole screen is a solid blue, if it shows discolored areas around the screen then you might have to "demag" the screen. See if you can rent a demad coil from a tv shop and with tv on turn the coil in circular movements all over the front of screen till blue is solid.good luck!

When I turn on my TV it goes straight to the menu screen. You can still hear sound but no picture. When I try to exit you see the picture for about a second then it automatically flashes back to the menu screen. Even if I try to use the functions in the menu screen it flashes right back to the main menu screen. Very frustrated...need help!

Samsung 40 no picture


If it is only 6 months old you probably still have a warranty. This is definitely a hardware issue, and unless you are comfortable taking your new TV apart, I would contact Samsung for repair.

Your set migbe missing the high voltage that lights up the picture tube,you need to check for loose conections starting at the horizontal drive transistor and transformer ,then check the horizontal output transistor for short,it needs to be checked with a meter if the output is shorted it probably open a safey fuse or resistor to prevent more damage.If you are familiar with tv service this will give a place to star but if you are not too familiar be safe and seek the help of a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.
