Question about LG 32LX3DC 32 in. LCD HDTV
I bought a tv in February and its giving me static on my screen. It's not the type of static you'd get if you had air wave cable, but more digital. Its getting more common. Almost everytime I turn it on now, it comes on after 20 or so seconds. Please help?
Many TV's with an LG plasma display (or built by LG for other manufacturers) have a manufacturing defect that has been reported widely on the Internet. LG, Akai, Samsung and Zeneth among others.
The sparkles are (usually red) visible on a black background with all inputs after the set has been used approximately one year. Soon after a pop is heard and the picture no longer shows at all.
LG and some other manufacturers using the LG displays have not acknowledged this defect and will only repair them free during the warranty.
Often techs will merely adjust voltages and or picture controls, which does not fix the problem but it just disguises it -- until the display blows -- usually after the warranty expiration.
I own a 42" Akai that is 9 months old that has recently been showing the red sparkles. My set is being replaced.
You should contact service if your set has this problem is under warranty and it should be replaced at no charge.
Good luck. :)
