Question about LG 52SX4D 52" HDTV

1 Answer

Won't turn on, just white light scroll then off.

Problem started with Dish Network receiver (I think) saying no signal. After talking to a tech and plugging and unplugging everything 50 times my receiver will go on but my LG 52SX4D 52 in. HDTV will not. I tried unplugging for an hour or so but this did not help. When I turn the tv on there is a white scrolling light going up and down for a while and then turns itself off. Thanks for any solutions,

Dish (500) is set and receiving a good signal - but is not talking with tv - will not down load channels

Hello! Daniel Busaq with Dish Network customer service here. When that happens you usually need to lock in your signal, to do this hit menu 6-1-1 go to check switch hit select go to test hit select. Once it finishes all of it's test the screen will change just cancel out completely.

Dvr has been replaced once. still problems with recording program


With the Service Plan, which is $6 per month, it will reduce the technician visit from $95 to $15. From what you have described, your dish may need to be realigned.

I'm not really sure exactly what you are saying. By "recharge" are you saying that you restarted your DISH Network service? If so, sometimes depending how long the service has been turned off, the receiver needs to have an authorization sent to it. For this to occur, you will need to call 1-800-333-3474 and speak with Tech Support. You can also perform a hard reset by unplugging the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and plugging back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and re-acquire satellite signal. I hope this helps.

My DISH Network dual dvr that I had a year started shutting down on its own. The lights would go off but the fan would still run on high. It would do this 15-20 times a day. Got a brand new dvr last week....


That replacement receiver may be experiencing technical problems. I apologize for the inconvenience of having the 2nd receiver shutting on/off. If unplugging and plugging the receiver back into the electrical outlet hasn't resolved the issue, please call 1-800-333-3474 so we can either send a replacement or have a tech come out to your home. I hope this helps.

You sure describe a bad receiver to me. Press MENU-6-1-3 and select details. Scroll down the page and you will see a section of VALUES 1-9 all should be zeroed except 7 which should not be over 4 and 8 at 1. If yours reads anything greater you will need it replaced.

Call in and ask for a Field Service Manager, Installation Manager or Quality Assurance Specialist to come to your home due to unresolved issues. To ensure you get a response e-mail or call the corporate office describing your situation. Do not call the toll free number for the corporate office as you will not get them.

We are unable to give numbers out so you may need to do some research of your own.

Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Same problems. Fan is whirling. Light flashes. No Video Signal.

The 622's are good receivers it is just that on occasion we get a shipment that has been mishandled. This causes the issues however a 722k is a good choice. Thanks for using Fixya.

Satellite signal "lost" after digital changeover

RG6 is the standard, as opposed to RG59 cable. The new cable would not cause the problem to start or continue.

Who was the tech who came out to your home? A Dish Network tech? And left the site with it still not working?

Resetting, unplugging the receiver, and having all those parts replaced... yeah that almost sums up everything that could be done with the exception of replacing the receiver itself.

It's rediculous that you have been dealing with this problem THAT long. Call Dish Network, give them a recap, and tell them your going to cancel and go with DirecTV if they don't fix the problem. Then speak to a supervisor if you get a rep that doesn't seem to care.

All else fails, go Direct. Better customer service, more HD.... that's what I have!
