This is a classic switchmode power supply, shutting down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both. This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, This set should be removed from the Power, and in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an, LG, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand.

I have seen this before. This has nothing to do with the inputs. If you see a constant blinking LED at the front when you hear the clicking noise, then you probably have a bad flyback switching regulator. It is also possible that some near by components may be shorted. A component level repair is possible and shouldn't cost you too much.

    Not at all, just seeing if there were other ideas you never know. I intend to contact a technician tomorrow and your suggestion will be what I am telling him. No offence meant hopefully none taken.

Hdmi wont connect to hdmi on laptop - shows lg screen on laptop with no model number but shows no signal on tv


Hi andy838,

I see that you LG LCD HDTV is giving you a No Signal message on the Screen.

see steps Below on finding out what will show video on your LCD HDTV.

* First make sure that the HDMI cable is connected to your Laptop to the HDTV LG.
* On your TV check your remote control and look for the input or Source Button, this will help you set your TV for the HDMI connection.
* Once set, turn your Laptop on and see if the HDTV will provide Video from the Laptop to your HDTV using HDMI.
* I believe that works right, now we have video still we need to set the Audio to work from you Laptop using HDMI to your HDTV.
* On your Laptop lower right side look for your speaker icon, right click on the speaker icon then select Playback Devices.
* Once you've selected Playback Devices you will see a window showing you a list of devices and the first one on the list will be you HDMI connection right click on it and select set as default device this will make your audio work on your HDMI to your TV.
* Once audio to HDMI is set and you want to go back to your Laptop just set the speakers as the default device this will set your speakers have the Audio working again on the Laptop.

I hope that this will help you regarding your concern.

Have a nice day,
