I am sorry to hear regarding the trouble. The situation you are describing is highly suggestive of ' Hardware Failure '.For future reference, you will need to go into your menu under "option" and scroll down to "factory reset" and select "yes".However, as you do not see any picture, which sets itself more as an internal failure than any other issue. If the set is under warranty, i would advise you to call LG, however, if it is out of warranty, you need to either get it repaired yourself or send the unit to service center. If you do not have any prior TV repair experience, i would advise you to send the unit for repair, however if you have prior experience, kindly revert so that we could proceed.

Note - You could unplug the TV for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it ON. Sometimes, this would fix small internal problems.

Thanks and Regards

    Thanks for your response!!

    Unfortunately, there is no SUCH settings which would make this monitor worked only with top box. This is a common problem on this set and discussed in many forums. I am sorry for such a bad news,however my job is to provide you with the most feasible solution than any run around solutions. You could try to play with the cable and see, if there is any response. However, if the monitor is still dead as dodo, it would confirm an internal failure.

    Thanks and Regards

I have pink color horizontal lines on my LG LCD monitor screen,How do i solve it?

You can fix you have to follow this instruction

1-Reset the TV by unplugging its power cord for 30 seconds and plugging it back in. This is an essential troubleshooting tool as a simple reset often will resolve the great majority of technical issues experienced by any kind of TV. Power the TV on after plugging it back in and check the picture for any improvement.

2-Unscrew the coaxial cable that attaches your wall cable outlet to either the coaxial cable input on the plasma TV or to any digital cable converters you may use at home. Check the copper needle in the middle of the cable for any bending or damage and screw the cable back on the coaxial input. Again, check the picture for any improvements.

3-Secure the audio/video connection cables that attach the source device you are trying to watch to the plasma TV. This is a particularly important step if you use component cables. Component cables separate a video signal into different colors, so a damaged or loose component cable can lead to noticeable discoloration on the screen. Once the cables are secure, both in the source device and the plasma TV, check the picture again to see if this may have resolved the issue.

4-Scan your channel lineup and check the other TVs in your home to determine the scope of the problem. If you see the discoloration only on one or a few channels, and the same channels are discolored on the other TVs in your home, you may be part of a cable service outage and you will need to report the issue to your cable provider. If all the channels on the one TV have the same discoloration, and the other TVs in the home look normal, the plasma TV likely will need to be serviced for a problem with its picture components.

hope that it helped

I think this calls for a phone call to LG customer service to see what can be done and to inquire if this is known issue in this model--all these companies keep extensive records or model versus problems.

The AV2 HDMI are missing from the input list of my Plasma LG 42 ". Please help

Well, first question would be is anything plugged in, and is currently outputting any content? Some televisions will only display input devices that are being fed some kind of content in list form. Like my Westinghouse...when my PS3 is on, my little HDMI3 will show up with a square indicating content....when it is off....HDMI3 is not listed. I'm sure you can however manually scroll through inputs on your remote, and you will find your AV2 HDMI.
