Question about LG 26LX2R 26 in. HD-Ready LCD TV

1 Answer

I have a LG 26LX2R. I unplugged it. When I plugged it in again it wouldn't work; no lights came on. I've checked fuse and socket, both OK. With repeated plugging in a red light comes on occasionally for a split second. There is no external power surge protection. A TV shop says it's £200 to repair. Can it be done cheaper please?

LG microwave not working fuse is ok


The cable is ok? is the cable plugged in in a socket, with live power? check with a little lamp.
No wire lose in the plug that goes into the mains?

Why both turn signals don't work


For the defroster:

Turn the defroster on and check for 12v at the connector on the window. If you have 12v, check for breaks in the element (the thin lines running across the window). If you do not have 12v and the fuse is good, the culprit will most likely either be the switch or the wiring.

For the right park light:

Check the bulb socket. You should have 12v at one terminal (with the park lights on) and ground at the other. If the voltage and ground are ok, you either have a bad bulb or possibly a bad socket. By bad socket I mean they can sometimes distort and not allow the terminals to make good enough contact.

Hope this was helpful.

Hotpoint Aqualtis AQ9L29I 1200 9kg washer has stopped working! It was working fine, got up one morning to load up and it wouldn't switch on! Door wouldn't open, no lights on, nothing, dead!...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Check that the washer supply is OK using another item - a kettle for instance. If it's not check your breakers/fuses. Reset/replace if necessary and if the same thing happens, or if there was nothing wrong with the breakers/fuses in the first place, sorry but with such a fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what could be wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.

I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The tail light and brake light are out. The fuse is ok. thanks


Of course you put in new light bulbs and a new fuse, just to be sure. If the bike lives outside, things get crusty.
Could be a fuse block problem or the tail light socket and wire.
See if your getting power to the tail light sockets, then unplug it at the wire harness and test the plug in the harness. I've had problems with brake switches and that's another check. The socket assembly is about $15 -$20 bucks. Voltmeters and contact cleaner are cheap at Shucks.

Washing machine wont work at all


Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before calling an engineer as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse that you know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never by-pass a fuse! If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch or the main control module. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
You need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.

Is there a way to restore my tv to it's original format?


You need an LG service remote to perform a reset. PN: 105-201M. I believe you use the "In-Stop" button to reset.

There is no power to my TV. I have checked fuses and sockets and they are all working


plug something else into that outlet to see if there is power there. if there is no power you should replace the fuse anyway as sometimes the fuse looks ok when it is not.

if there is power at the outlet plug the tv back in and try it again. if it won't start up the problem is likely in the start button.
