Sounds like there may be some bad electrolytic capacitors on the power supply module. This has been a common problem on for this model. There are 2 caps that are 1000uf / 10 volts that commonly go bad on this set. All caps on power supply module that are domed or mushroomed on top rather than flat will need to be changed. Eventially it will get to where it will not come on at all if not fixed soon. If you have any experience working w/ electronics, this a very simple and inexpensive repair to make.yourself. If you take it to a shop, you'll probably pay anywhere from $100-$200 to get it fixed, if it is indeed bad capacitors. If you need any more info just let me know. I've repaired many lcd's w/ this problem before. I would definately start by checking the caps. If you do it yourself, make sure you put them in correctly. You have to make sure the positive/negative pins are in the right position as it's printed on the board.

Why is my LG 32LC7D TV taking 5 minutes to have a picture when turning on.?


Likely signs of a issue that is going to only get worse---could be in power supply of set (first place to look) or could be main board or something that it controls.

Kind of like "My car runs rough when cold" it is a issue that is not full blown yet.

My 31GT740 tv's picture is taking up to 5 minutes to come on...


There is possibly a loose solder joint in the horizontal drive circuit. There is a little coupling coil just before the horizontal output that will get loose. This should not be real expensive to have repaired.

No Picture - only sound


I have a TV at work that has been doing the same thing here's how I've been getting it to show a picture:

turn the TV on then quickly change it to an input channel (like front or etc) that doesn't have anything connected to it. Let it sit there for a few minutes, then change it to a regular channel and see if you have a picture.

I turn the tv on and I can hear the sound just fine. However, the picture takes about 5 or 10 minutes to show up.


Taking to shop. It was not a projection tv, just a rca 27 inch. Thanks for checking back with me.

Tv turns on but takes about 20 minutes to show the picture


This is the picture tube. If you check shops you can find one that has a picture tube restorer. If they run just the cleaning process it will buy you some time. This is good some times for up to a year

TV picture goes out


The tv is shutting down because of a power problem. It could be the power transformer or a color gun overheating. Expect at least a couple of hundred dollars to fix it. Some shops will do house calls for around $65 and can diagnose the problem and give you an estimate. Usually they can just remove the board, take it to the shop and repair it, then reinstall it.

Takes about 5 minutes for picture to appear... Then every one to two minutes the picture disappears. It comes back on for 1 - 2 minutes then repeats. When set if first turned on, the stereo/stand-by...


Takes about 5 minutes for picture to appear... Then every one to two minutes the picture disappears. It comes back on for 1 - 2 minutes then repeats. When set if first turned on, the stereo/stand-by light (red) flashes on/off until just before picture first appears .if your tv is very old than it might be due to crt getting weak crt base loose loose contact in power supply thanks
