LG RH177 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder - Page 7 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

For those users who just bought their machines, I would suggest warranty service. Roxanne2 should contact Philips directly with the seiral number, and they should be able to say which store they sold it to. That unit probably has a bad internal DVD writer drive.
The following solution should only be done if your machine is out of warranty unless you get permission from the manufacturer, as it will likely void the warranty otherwise:
Unplug the unit, disconnect all cables and move it to as static-free of an area as possible. Remove the cover, which usually means removing a lot of screws. Most DVD recorders have regular drives like you see in PCs. There is usually a tiny hole in the lower-right part of the drive that you can stick a small wire into, such as an unbent paper clip. You can then manually pull the drive open to get the DVD out.

Do a reset to this TV, and then check. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
Faults & possible causes to LCD & Plasma screen are given with illustrations. You can get an idea about the fault to an extent.

I suggest contacting sellers on Amazon.com and Ebay.com and offer to pay for a copy of the manual from 2004.

Send it to an LG Service Centre. The picture you might be able to fix, but not the zero sound issue.

Go to settings, wifi, enter username and password, connect to wifi.

Probably backlights blown or T-con board faulty!

No signal from wherever you get your signal from? That sounds like a test screen.

Unplug it from the mains for 2 minutes. If it doesn't come back on, you need a service call.

Most have a limited number of times you can change before it stays in one region for good.

Unfortunately, televisions are not supposed to be used as computer monitors, newer Smart, perhaps, but not older ones.. It's broken, so you need to take it to an LG Service Centre. Trying to fix yourself always ends in tears, frustration and wasted money.


Buy a 50" 4K Computer monitor :>)

Disconnect for the mains supply for 5 minutes. Plus back in and switch on from the set, not the remote. Does it work, Yes, great, you fixed it.

No? Take it into an LG Service Centre. They have the thousands of dollars of test equipment that is needed.

If you try to fix it yourself, it will all end in tears.

Transistors don't or rarely blow (overheat) for no reason and when one or more does fail it is best to assume it has done so because of an overload condition which can be caused by the current demand of subsequent circuits being too high or the bias being incorrect.

With the modern trend of DC coupling the various stages of a circuit, the bias or quiescent current and circuit gain is set by the component choice and circuit design, the bias for all stages ultimately being controlled by the adjustment of the first stage.

Age and environment causes many components to change value, not the least those components that set the bias. When this happens the quiescent current of the final stages can increase and cause heating.

When replacing a transistor it is important to realise the gain of the replacement is probably different to the original and so certain component values will need to be adjusted so the original performance is restored to the circuit and the transistor parameters aren't exceeded, finishing by checking and adjusting the quiescent current.

Backlight issues, either the led backlights or the T-con board.

LG Televison &... | Answered on May 13, 2020 | 64 views

The problem is most likely in the power supply unit. There are components in it that have fixed lifespan. These components can be tested if you have the proper equipment, Due to the age of the unit and the fact that they are obsolete due to the new LED designs, you wont be able to buy the whole power supply.
