# Hello, I recently had an accident where a plastic toy was thrown at my brand new LG HD 42? TV, now the pixels are all distorted and there is barely a picture. Is that something can be fixed, or am I better off just buying a new TV? Thanks! Emily

### My new lg 3d tv is closng on top bottom and sides is there anything i can do to cure the problem

Could you provide more information? What do you mean when you say, "closing?" Do you mean there is a black band around the picture? If so that means the original picture is recorded at a lower pixel density than your TV will display.
In the past most TV program signals provided a picture dimensions (in computer standards) very roughly 600 pixels wide by 400 pixels tall. What this means is that a picture of that pixel size will display as a small, squarish image slightly wider than it is tall on a (now) standard 1080p LCD television--which produces an image 1920 pixels wide by 1080 pixels high.
That would be nearly unwatchable (picture too small) except for the fact that most TVs compensate for the relatively small size of "standard definition TV (SD TV, as opposed to HDTV) by enlarging the image so that the top and bottom edges of the picture touch the top and bottom of the TV screen. This will leave black bands on either side of the picture. Some LCD TVs will automatically stretch BOTH dimensions of the image, which yields a distorted, "sqaushed" image.
All my comments above apply to both standard LCD and 3D-LCD TVs, by the way.

You have a bad panel. Will be cheaper to buy a new TV than to replace panel.

### A gree speck on the screen

It's an "open" pixel. It is unable to close to block the light, so it appears as a dot. The color white is made up of red, green and blue. So, a single open pixel will have just a single color. If you have had the TV for just a short time (< 30 days), many retailers will exchange the TV. However, if you have had the TV longer, you should contact the manufacture. The pixel specifications will vary from manufacture to manufacture... but some manufactures have a zero dead pixel specification and they will repair the TV at no cost to you. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Go to this site and get the correct manual

Note you have to be able to get an HD signal for the TV to display it. If you are on satellite TV, then a new receiver is needed.

### 47LG70 static like green pixelation

This is going to be either a voltage adjustment or a faulty control board and/or Y sustain board.

You need to have a qualified technician check the voltages on these boards to determine if they need to be adjusted or else (if the voltages are fine) these boards will need to be replaced.
