Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV
If you turn it on and then get real close and look at the screen from the side. You should see a ghost like tv image. It will be a normal display but just very faint. What has happened is your backlight has failed or the power supply for it. This shouldn't be too expensive to fix as it is a common problem with any lcd tv.
If you have any warranty this will be covered. If not you will need to take it to a repair depot. You can call the store you purchased it from and you can check warranty as well as getting the information for the closest repair depot. Any tv shop can fix this (if you have any of those near you, not as common as they used to be) You can also go to the LG website and look under support for contact numbers. Then call or email LG to get the repair depot information.
As i said this is a simple repair and should be fairly inexpensive say $100. Having said that the usual dvice i give is to get an estimate first and know what a replacement tv is worth. Some simple repairs can cost more than a new tv so its worth being careful.

Thanks for using FixYa. To start with you'll have to check the Z-sus and the main logic board for any blown components. Also check the Y-sus board. You’ll need to take the back off and check for any blown/bulged capacitors that might have gone bad and causing this issue. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
