Sounds like the EDID data has been corrupted in your main board. it can be reprogrammed but most techs will just replace the board. either way someone will have to come out and look at it. it should have a 2 year parts and labor warr on it. call LG cust service and get someone out there.

My TV has a white vertical line about 8 in wide on the right side of the screen followed by a few blurry vertical line going toward the center of the screen the left side is fine

More burned capacitors.. You have a center and sometimes a right and left circuit board. If you have to visit the board more than once in just a few months you will have to call the LG tech. You need to replace one of the boards. I tried the self repair route and nearly ruined the TV. Take it from me the tech.

We have had a technika tv for a few months and it was working perfectly. However, we can no longer receive any BBC channels - all of the other digi channels are fine. The set is in one of our guest rooms...

I'm unfamiliar with that precise brand, but if you go into the set-up menu then you should first try to re-install the digital channels from scratch.

If that fails, then the fault is with the transmitter or the reception, not the tv. If you know that the transmission is fine, then check how the tv gets the signal from the aerial. Is the aerial pointing in the correct direction? Are there as few in line splitters and joints as possible in the cable from the aerial to the tv? Have all co-axial connectors been fitted correctly? Digital signals are hundreds of times weaker than the old analogue signals, so it doesn't take much to cause reception problems if your equipment has any faults.

The remote interface of the TV died on mine, it was intermittent then it stopped completely. Remote control is fine, it's the remote sensor in the TV itself.

Just says no program information AV1 and no signal. Tried removing red, yellow, white wires and turning it on and off again. This problem occured after I hooked up my camera to the TV. What is the...

After a month or more of seeing "No program information" on my 32" LG TV and not being able to solve it I recalled that I'd unplugged the TV around the time the problem started.
When you first set up the TV you have to go into the settings and tell it what TIME ZONE you are in. Apparently when the TV is unplugged it erases the time zone information.

I went into the settings a few minutes ago and told the TV that I was in the Eastern Time Zone. Voila!, the TVGOS (i.e. the program information) immediately started working again.

If you're getting "No Program information" check your TV's setup settings.

Hope this helps!

This is a warranty issue. Either take the TV back to SAM's club or call Vizio for a warranty repair.

You didn't mention what your signal source is but if it is one of the two satellite services, the problem is probably with your receiver, not your set.

Just put your on-screen menu on the screen and if it times out, bring it up again and again.
If the menu continues to display each time, your set is OK.
Call the service provider, Dish or Direct TV.
