This is a COMMON flaw in this particular LCD.

LG used to be known as GoldStar - they have changed their name to wash themselves of the "cheap" image of the old brand... and have "borrowed" (partnered) with another lowly brand (Philips) - but the quality problems still remain.

The likely problem in your set is the inverter (or a component on it) has failed. (especially if there is sound, and the TV powers on normally)

If this is a new set under warranty - have it repaired under warranty or return it.

If this is NOT under warranty - you are looking at about a $300 repair - depending on your location.

There is no end-user quick fix. Professional repair is recommended.

Thanks for using FixYa

After changing the ink catridges and resetting the drum fuse lately (note: it is known that the fuse will be blown off after certain number of prints but otherwise is in good condition), my Epson Acculaser...

The repeating image is a ghost image, and here is described what it can be. Probably if you solve this, you also solve the red-dot problem. If possible, I would suggest to replace the wiper blade.
Repeating images on laser printerThis likely means a faint ghost of the main printout at a distance equal to the circumference of one of the rollers or photosensitive drum.

Depending on where the problem originates, this could be a bad wiper (cleaning) blade, faulty corona, or incomplete fusing.

  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of the photosensitive drum, it is a wiper blade, erase lamp, or corona problem.A residual latent image or residual toner is sticking to the drum and not being properly cleared.

  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of one of the fuser rollers, then the fusing may not be complete due to damaged rollers or an incorrect temperature setting.

It is easy to determine where the problem is located: Interrupt a printout in mid-stride (where part of the paper is between the toner/developer and fuser. If the un-fused image has ghosting, it is a fault in the area of the drum

Pink color appearence when swith on tv for 1 minutes & wringles form on the screen


Pink colour denotes the absence of green colour dispay in your picture tube. I hereby gies an approximate voltages at the three cathodes of your picture tube socket solderings, and you just measure the voltages with reference to this. The voltages are approximate, and can chage up to 2% up or down.
Green Cathode = Pin number 9 [161VDC approx]; Blue Cathode = Pin number 8 [162VDC apprpx]; and Red cathode = Pin number 10 [157VDC approx]

If any of these voltage differes, the clolur related to that cahode will also rise or low, thath is if the cathode voltage goes very low, that clour will be prdominent, and if it goes high, that colour will not be there.
In your TVs case, the green cathode voltage now will be high. t may be due to a soldering loose to either to the picture tube base socket or at the terminals of the related transistor or Ic. It is best to resolder the suspected loose soldering points by applying a little more solder, as we in service field also do. It is very difficult to locate the exact loose soldering point and so I advice you to do so. If needs, replace the colour output transistors, of other devices if used. Just look at the voateg at pin number 9 at the picture tube base card. Resolder all the picture tube base socket pins. If you wants any more calrification, contact me through Fixya. Ok.

I have a '95 Ford Thunderbird with CEL throwing code P1407 Exhaust Gas Recirc No Flow detected. Is this a do it yourself fix and if so where is this located on the car? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I don not remember the ecxact number of parts, however here goes. Takes about an hour.Remove plastic air management(1 bolt, 2 large hose clamps and 2 approx 1 inch hoses). Disconnect the battery terminals. Remove "U shaped vacuum hose from intake(alluminum about 4" in diameter, and elbow shaped). remove vacuum lines from EGR, and the plastic purge solenoid(has two port next to eachother. remove all electronic connection from the throttle positioning sensor, and the components between the intake and the firewall. Remove Cruise Control, and throttle cable. Remove intake(the elbow shaped part) four bolts at the base of it. I believe they are 8mm. Remove two bolts from the EGR valve(kind of a pain to get to) It is on the top of the block close to the fire wall next to the intake(elbow shaped 4 inch tube with TPS) I believe that they are 10mm. space back EGR 1/4 inch with smooth plastic shims to not damage seal, or replace seal. With everything apart clean all that soot and gunk out of that channel directly underneath intake(elbow) and port between that and the EGR. Make sure and take your time to clean this thoroughly. Put back together. The Electrical connectors only goon one way, however pay clos attention to those and the vacuum lines that they are all put back on in the correct places.

After about 30 mins the tv colour goes and picture is black & white almost negative. this can last for anything up to 1 hour then it comes back to colour of its own accord. t.v is about 3 or 4 years...

Does this happen with all signal sources and on all channels - DVD for example. It sound like an internal tuning or video processing fault.

Picture starts out normal and afer 2 hours becomes egg shaped

Sounds like it is getting to hot
Check how hot it is after one hour then check it after the image goes egg see if it is getting hotter.
Also make shore nothing is blocking the air vents.
Could also be a fuse on its way out.
