Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

LG HDTV large screen is blank but guide/list/pip shows up

The main TV screen is completely black even though the sound is just fine. You can pull up the guide and DVR recorded list and see both just fine. However, when you try to watch a recorded show, you can only get the volume, the screen is black. You can see the picture in picture and the small pic shows up in corner fine but again, the main screen is black.

    Instead of seeing the TV Guide display, I received a message one day when I turned on our LG large screen plasma asking me what service we had--there were 4 choices. I chose the wrong one and ever since, when we turn on the TV, we only see the PIP until we hit the escape button and then we see whatever channel it was left on. We do not get the TV Guide display at all. We have tried to trouble-shoot by going into set-up, by using the manual, and nothing has worked. We would like to have the TV turn on with a full screen display. Any suggestions?

Lg 3000 42in tv, no picture just blank screen but sound is working


Sounds like a problem with your backlights. Could be the inverter, the CCFL's, the power supply board, or even the main board causing it.
But don't fret, this could be a very good opportunity for family bonding. I like to stand up in front of the TV and act like what should be showing on the screen for my family's viewing pleasure.
Ok, I used to do that anyway. But my family left me for some reason.

My projection hitachi tv has a blank square showing up on the upper left hand corner. it shows up on all tv channels, but is fine when using DVD. What is the problem?


Sounds like you have Picture in Picture enabled. It doesn't show when viewing DVD because the DVD is the PIP. Just turn PIP off, there should be a button for it on the remote.

Built in tv guide channel


It's possible there is a flaw with your TV but more likely the listing information is being blocked. Many cable companies do this, likely another reason to force you into buy/leasing their equipment. This should not be a problem with OTA.
