It can be power supply due to bad caps, but we need to find out first if the backlights are on but no pictures, or no backlights at all.
Service manual: http://elektrotanya.com/?q=showresult&megnev=LG&megnev2=37LH30&kategoria=tv&kat2=all

Please try this when the pictures go out:
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

Picture goes black with gray fuzzy lines ~ 1/2" apart horizontal.


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

Picture goes out


Has the lamp ever been replaced on this TV? If not it would be the first suspect. The next time the picture goes out look for light coming from the back of the TV where the lamp is. If you see no light then replace the lamp. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you...

My 52 inch rear projecter rca tv model number r52wh74 picture goes black after a little wile and dont come back for awile staying off longer and longer all the time. but there is sound.


It seems that you have either a defective lamp or ballast, i recommend that you replace the lamp first, if it doesn't work it means that it's most probable that your ballast doesn't have enought voltage to keep up with your lamp. I recommend you get a Philips lamp since it's going to give you a brighter image and also it has a longer life spand 6-8 thousand hours, on the other hand, the generic lamps last 3-6 thousand hours and the image is not that bright, so if you're looking for quality get the Philips.
