Disconnected TV, moved from one wall to another, hooked it back up - now no picture, no sound.
When it powers up, the green light(power) flashes a few times; never did that before and it takes a while to power off

Hi, If you had not moved it, I may rule the SMPS (power supply board) went bad.
The unit may have suffered excessive shock that it knocked loose a connecting cable or two inside the unit. Don't be a hero though by attempting to pry the unit open. LG generally has a two (2) year warranty and they're super on repair turn around time. Call it in and they'll fix it pronto.

Best Regards

No Picture/No Sound


This is very possibly a power surge, can you tell me how many times the light blinks, you probably have a bad power board now if you had a power surge.

Turn on the tv the green power light comes on but there is no picture whatsoever


Is there a PC mode and hook up on this model? If so try and use the TV as a monitor for your PC. If it has a picture your tuner could be the problem. I had the same cinerio with my new Toshiba 42" Hdtv. Hooked up a DVD player recorder with a tuner and it worked. It had a bad tuner in the TV. You don't mention if there is sound. If you have sound then it maybe the light for the LCD pic.
