SOURCE: Have a 42" LG LCD

Sometimes this is an indication of a bad LCD Controller Board (or TCON board). Sometimes it's even just a loose or improper connection with one of the ribbon cables leading into it. When the set heats up the connection expands and makes better contact and functions somewhat better. If you remove the rear access panel you might be able to see the Tcon board. It will probably be under its own metal shield / cover plate. It will have a bunch of wires wrapped in a steel braided shielding cable leading into one side of it through a connector. It will also have 2 or 4 thin flat ribbon cables leading out the other side of it via plastic connectors going to the actual LCD panel. You can google it to see pictures of a Tcon board, it will look similar to the one at this link: http://cgi.ebay.com/LG-6870C-0080D-LCD-DRIVER-BOARD-MDL-42LC2D-UD-APUSLL-/170504013027?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27b2d4c4e3 You can try flipping up the little plastic retainer clips that hold these flat ribbons in place and gently pulling the ribbons straight out. There will be some gold / copper contacts right on the tips of these ribbons. Sometimes they get oxidized and need to be gently cleaned with a pencil eraser to make them shiny again. Then just slide them straight back in the same connectors and flip down the little plactic retainer clip to hold them in place again. I am assuming of course that the unit is unplugged while you do all this and that the warranty has already expired. If you have any more questions or require additional assistance, please comment back on this page and I will endeavour to help you.

Tv problem troubleshooting screen all white no picture


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

My tv stopped showing picture but still apperears


If the whole screen is just white light, the the LCD controller (t-con) board may have gone out. Your TV can have more than one version of the boards inside.

White line


There are individual drivers for each line of plasma cells in the display (horz. & vert.), but they usually are an integral part of the display module that can only be repaired by the manufacturer. A new 42" HD-ready set with more features can be bought for 50-75% of what was likely paid for this one. The cheapest thing to do is learn to live with it. (That's what I'd do until the set got worse or the prices got even lower.)
