Question about LG 42LG50 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

There is a dark soot-colored shadow shaped somewhat like a long irregular finger or leg that runs down the left third of my screen. This appeared about two months ago and never goes away when the screen is on. It is less noticible the darker the color and visa versa. But the only time it cannot be discerned is if the color area it "overlaps" is black or nearly so. The TV is less than two and a half years old.

    Yes, it was a screen/"panel" problem. It needed to be replaced. Parts were no longer available as my model has been superceded. I got the whole tv replaced because I had service insurance.

How to Put on Eye Shadow


Achieving Smoky Eyes.If you're looking for a way to play up your eye color, go smoky. A smoky effect makes eye color pop and creates a dramatic evening look. Read on to learn how to create a flawless smoky eye. <br /><br />Create a smooth canvas for eye makeup. First, you'll want to apply a primer to your entire face, including the eye area. Then apply a concealer to get rid of redness and dark circles. Finish off by applying a moisturizing foundation to create a flawless canvas. <br /><br />Apply eyeliner. Use a black liner and draw a line across the upper lash line. When you get to the middle of the eye, make the line a little bit thicker. Choose a lighter-colored eyeliner and line the bottom of your eye. Smudge the liner with your finger to create a smoky appearance. <br /><br />Apply two colors of eye shadow. In order to select the right products, check out eye shadow reviews. You'll want a color palette that has both a light and a dark color, such as L'Oreal Paris HiP Concentrated Shadow Duo. Use the lighter color as a base and blend the color all over your upper lid. Then, apply the dark eye shadow, starting at the lash line and blending upward.

To dark


Hmm.. Your cellphone Leds could be broken.. :/
Try pressing the following keystrokes (and joystick for left/rigth):

Right, *, Left, Left, *, Left, *.

A new menu should be displayed on your screen.
Not sure of the english descriptions of these menus, I'll just tell you to enter the third menu item. (or press 3)
This is the test-menu for your cellphone. I certainly had much fun messing thru this menu, but for now try enter '1' for running a maindisplay-test. Your screen should cycle thru a colorful test, mainly displaying red, green and blue colors :)
second try the 2nd menu item, which test the lights/LEDs.
If this doesnt make your cellphone flash, on and off, with a 'Ok'-message, the LEDs may be out :/

Please reply if you tried this! :)
