Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

SHARP 37HV6U No picture until long warmup

I have had this set for three years and it's been terrific, no problems.

Recently, however, when the set is turned on, the green light lights up, the separate AVC box is on, but no picture until 5-10 minutes go by. Nothing will show up on the screen, menu, what inputs are available, etc. until it "warms up".

Connected to Comcast cable box, 5.1 surround receiver and these work well. All channels and sound come through cleanly on the external speakers, so it's something with the TV.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Alas, it sounds like something could be quite wrong, or it could be as simple as needing a reset. Unplug the unit, wait a minute then replug it and see what happens.

My Sharp TV just flashes and does not have a picture >


Matt, I would need a model # and year/ age, or serial # in order to determine your situation. Plus your personal history with it. Like- is it new, used, have you moved recently, has it fallen or been bumped. Is there a reliable power source or running on extension cords, etc. Has it worked properly up until now, or has it ever?
More info req'd plz...

No sound


Let verify first to narrow down to where the problem can be. First, make sure the MUTE or SAP function is not activated, then check the on screen sound set up menu to make sure the speakers are not set to OFF. If the setting is OK, then attach the powered PC speakers to the Audio Line out RCA jacks (Red and White) to see if you can get the sound there, if you do, then the problem can be in the power amp circuits, if you do not get the sound at RCA jacks, then the problem can be in the sound processor circuit. Please post back what you find.

My Sharp LC32D40U went black yesterday, I can still hear the speakers but no image


I have the same model 3yrs old. Your problem is a loose contact on a circuit board. Unplug the tv and remove the back cover. Remove the circuit board on the opposite side of the input plug. Clean the mating surface of the circuit board and the mount, reinstall the circuit board and tighten the screws. This is where the lost contact is occuring. Reinstall the back cover. Thats it. good luck and happy watching.

Sounds like one of three things:

1) Mainboard/Tuner problems - although I'm really only saying this because you guys seem to think its associated with your over the air channels.
<br>
2) Power board problems. You power board/inverter may be damaged in some way - blown capacitor or other malfunctions. This is very possible as this could result in the backlight turning off and the screen going black but keeping the keeping the sound. If this is the problem, it will at some time start to happen constantly. Have a pro open it up and look at the power board.

3) The backlight is defective/dying. The backlight is a set of lights that reflects through the LCD panel. If the screen looks black, but you might see a faint picture or you still hear sound, then the backlight is not on. The panel itself could be defective. You can fix it by replacing the whole LCD panel (expensive), replacing the backlight panel itself (need a busted LCD of the same size with a working backlight), or fix the backlight, which is tough and risky.

Most likely its either the power board or backlight. Either way, you need someone to open up the TV and take a look inside. Good luck! Hope it works out.

Change your input source. You are probably on Input Source "TV". My HDMI cable is plugged in INPUT 4 so make sure that your TV is set to the right INPUT.
