No setting or troubleshooting can fix this. TV needs service. Sounds like a control board or buffer board went out.

LG LCD TV - Buzzing Sound and Faint Horizontal Lines


From your description, the sound you are hearing is the inverter(s) that drive the back light for the LCD screen/module.
The inverters mounted on the back side (one lower right and one left side) of the LCD screen/module. They are under the sheet metal cover/shields.
The inverters are going out and or the LCD screen/module is going bad too.
That LG TV has only a 1 year on parts and labor from the date of purchase, but you could call LG and ask for their help for such a new TV. They might do it under a warranty, for little or no cost to you.
I hope this information has helped you.
Good Luck.

Call Samsung they may be willing to cover the repair since it so close the the end of the one year warranty. They are a good company and will usually work with the customer. Any brand of tv can fail and do at any time. Trust me on this. I've seen them do it before.

Samsung less than year old, sound but black screen


lizau2011, This is probably a premature failure in one of the power supplies inside the unit. If unit is under warranty you need to contact the Samsung people to get it repaired. Bye for now. louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com

PANASONIC 36" TAU --- NEED HELP


Sounds terminal. Companies build things with "planned obsolescence" in mind. In other words. You buy a TV today, and the warranty says it's good for 4 years. 4 years and 3 months later, it dies.

I hope someone else can help you.
Good Luck!

Same problem here. Polaroid Tech Support says that it is the control box.

It is a little over a year old so it is out of warranty with Polaroid.

Except, I bought the two year plan when I bought it at Walmart. So I called them and they are sending me a box and a shipping label to mail it back for repair. I tried to tell tham that is a little big to mail but they insist. This should be fun.
