Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have a 6 month old LG LCD 42" flat panel tv that, from time to time when we turn it on, will have sound come on but no picture. The status light (on/off) turns green from red. Since this has happened several times, I have found that unplugging the unit will fix the problem but I don't want to do that each time I want to watch my $1300 tv. Any ideas?

A lot of these sets have a software upgrade that can take care of intermittent power on issues, check with the LG website and see if there is noe available for your model set, I have seen this solve these problems numerous times

Samsung lcd TV five years old, screen suddenly went black


In order to properly provide you with guidance, we need some hint about the problem. Can you describe the symptoms? Is the set dead? Are there any blinking status lights?

Thanks,
Dan

I have a 52" Sony WEGA plasma TV. The picture went out, audio is fine. No TV picture, no dvd, no anything. What is wrong and how much do I need to budget to fix it? I love my Sony plasma!


that is because plasma tvs have a limit on there screen life and if all is done all day for months and months was watching tv ,playing games then you will need a new tv plasmas **** you can get same quality out of a lcd flat panel and three time the screen life or you could spend anthor grand and have the solution replace and maybe the that part of the control board went out and you will spending about half of what you paid for it to fix thats why i have two lcds have not had one problem with them one 32 for my computer and a 42 for me to watch tv ov on play games with and both the same brand and i paid 1200 for both brand new

Dark picture on wega lcd


Yes, if this TV has a bulb it is likely to be the bulb.

I am not familiar with this exact model, but other LCD Projection TV will show dim picture after some time. Expected life of the lamps is about 2yrs. After 2yrs the picture will become dim. After 5yrs I am suprised it is even working.

Dirt doesn't cause this problem unless your are a smoker or have the unit "literally" outside. DO NOT try to clean it or let someone tell you to do it because it will cause more problems than it fixes.
