    Same problem here with a 42LG70. Screen shows the usual boot info, Bios loading, memory testing, and Windows XP load screen, but just when it gets to the point where it should show the desktop, the screen goes black and after a few seconds, the "invalid format" message comes up on the screen.

    Windows XP works OK, but Linux does not. I am running 1280x768@60Hz on both setups.

HOW DO I CONNECT TO THE INTERNET MY LG TV MODEL NUMBER 42PA4500-ZM POWER AC 220-240V 50/60 HZ 0.90 A SERIAL NO : 207MAUA2Y862


You read the manual and it will tell you, except in your case it won't as it is not a Smart TV with internet capability. It is a plain and simple television.

LG LED TV has sound but no picture. Went out all of a sudden. Image shows with flashlight. Flashes for split second on power up and power down.


Your screens back light has most likely failed and or the voltage controller for the back light, both should be replaced.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

I have a lg tv 60 inch tv ln5600 when powering on red stand by light blinks 3 time then no light pic or sound not backlight and no image when using flashlight treid replacing power board does same


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
