Hi bsatkins88,

This is an indication of out-of-regulation in the power supply section. This was caused by leaky/dried electrolytic capacitor in that section. It will drop the supply from normal voltage and will disable the unit.It needs a little warm-up to make itself stable but the symptom will get worst. Sometimes it has a bulged/dome at the top but not all, it is better that you have a capacitor checker/tester to determine its condition. Your unit will back to normal again if the leaky capacitor is isolated.

If you don't have necessary tools and test instruments, and can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to look for a professional to troubleshoot the problem. Don't attempt to work in the power supply if you don't know the safety precaution of handling it, there some stored electricity enough to hurt you with a little mistake only.

You may also replace the entire board for your convenient http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=LG+42LC2D&_sacat=0&_odkw=53UDX10B&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313.

Also check if your unit is under warranty /extended warranty, avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free. Don't open the back panel, this will void the warranty.

Hope I helped you.

Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya.

Do not know how to program the systemlink3 universal t,v. remote control to my t.v.


Option 1:
To clear things up and make it simple, here is how to program the RCA Systemlink 3 remote:
****WITH DEVICE TURNED ON****
  1. Press and hold the "Code Search" button until the LED lights, then release. LED will stay light.
  2. Press and release the device key to be programmed. LED will go off when button is pressed and back on when released. LED remains on.
  3. Press and release the remote On/Off (power) button as many times as required to turn your device OFF.
  4. When device turns OFF, press and release the ENTER button.
Test remote on device, if ALL functions do not work, repeat above procedure.
***IMPORTANT NOTE***Count how many times you press the On/Off button. If ALL funtions do not work and you need to repeat, you don't want to stop at the same non-working code. For instance, if it takes 23 times to turn your device off and after testing, the remote does not control all functions, repeat steps 1-3 BUT when the device turns off at the 23rd time, turn it back on using the power button ON THE ACTUAL DEVICE then continue with step 3 and 4 from above.


Option 2:

Thanks for the hints on your web site. For the RCA SystemLink 3 with the key pad, I could not get the sequences described to work. But they did point me in a direction which worked for my remote:
  • With the TV on (for TV)
  • Press and hold code search until the light stays on
  • Press TV (for TV) button once
  • Press the on/off button once
  • Thereafter, the light will stay lit and every couple to three seconds it will blink twice indicating it is trying another code.
  • When the TV turned off, I pressed enter. Thereafter the unit worked.

Tv turns on but takes about 20 minutes to show the picture


This is the picture tube. If you check shops you can find one that has a picture tube restorer. If they run just the cleaning process it will buy you some time. This is good some times for up to a year

Replace Shorted D500 And D503 Sony p/n# 871908100 or NTE571 will work as a good sub. Also Replace Q512 Sony p/n# 872980929 2sc4159.
Parts will be about $17.00 dollars and takes about an hour if you're thinking of taking this to the shop instead...
