Problem with new TV

My tv hums when the backlight is at any setting other than 100 percent. This problem was present when the Tv was first set up.
The product chosen isn't the actual tv that I have, my model number is 42LG30 but this webpage wouldn't let me chose that

The back light power supply is radiating. This can be from many things. I have seen this from a poor or missing ground shield that covers the back light power supply, and or its cable harness.

Another thing that I have seen cause this type of fault are worn electrolytic capacitors in the back plain light power supply that have become high in their ESR.

Sanyo 42 inch LCD TV - Could the back light inverter be the cause of not getting any power? There is a red light on it and that is all


> Could the backlight inverter be the cause of not getting any power?

If the set uses a fluorescent backlight (many use LEDs instead) it will not prevent it from turning on so at least audio should be present.
With no backlight. you will not see any video but the set will receive and audio will work.
If you replaced the (main) power supply with a 'pull' (removed from another set) it may have failed like your original one.

My 6-month old tv is making intermittent 'buzzing" sounds. It was a Christmas gift and I don't have any paperwork on it but it did come from Costco. What should I do? Thanks so much.


Humming usually begins when the backlight setting is low. For some sets setting the backlight anywhere from 95 to 100 works. Most wok at 100. So turning it up should get rid of the problem. You can follow the 5 steps below to change the backlight setting.

1. Turn the TV on.
2. Press the Menu button on the remote, located right below the channel changing button.
3. Press the down direction button, located at the middle of the remote. Press that button until the backlight is highlighted.
4. Press the right direction button until the backlight is at 100.
5. Press the OK button and then the Exit button until you get back to your picture.

Got no picture only sound


Hello,
You most likely have a backlight issue with this TV set. Could be the inverter circuits for the backlights. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. there could also be a screen driver problem. This would entail changing the entire board. You should call in an authorized LG repair center to check this set out for you. Good Luck and please let me know what you found out about this TV set.

Hum from tv


try unplugging any equipment that you have attached to the tv one at a time, such as dvd players, surround sound, cable box, etc. also if you have a cable box attached, try adjusting the volume on it. if you have everything unplugged from tv and it still hums, then it may be a tv issue

Hum in sound volume


It could be a few things. The first thing you want to look at is make sure that the microphone is muted in the mixer controls of your audio cards. These settings are located in the control panel. If you need the mic, look under the advanced settings under it and disable the 20 db option for it.

If that doesn't work I have a few other ideas.

New 42LG30 - 42


This is probably a defect in the backlight inverter circuit. The transformer may have a loose winding or something in there is not cycling off or on properly. If you can still collect on the warranty, do so.
