Question about LG 32LX3DC 32 in. LCD HDTV

LG 32LC2D 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, SamsungLG 32LC2D HDTV - 1.gif 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. :)

Bose Wave Radio/CD bad static and occasional "pop"


Hi, When you change the Aux turn the radio off. Then turn it back on. As for the static move the radio to another plug or to a different room. If you have floresecent lighting it may do that too.
The cord acts like an antenna so don't bundle the cord. Good luck.

I HAVE A 2004 RCA MODEL 24V511T. dO i NEED A DIGITAL TUNER IN ORDER TO FOR IT TO WORK AFTER FEBRUARY 17?


Model has one NTSC RF and two NTSC composite inputs. It's compatible with analog Over The Air and non-scrambled analog cable broadcasts. After the US analog cutoff (currently scheduled for June 12) it WILL require a digital to analog converter to receive ATSC digital TV transmisions.

Dtv ready?


Going to the following link will help you to find out if your television is DTV ready or not:

http://www.dtvtransition.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=94

Using their online tool, select the Brand (Akai) and the Model from the list. If you cannot find your model in the list (which I was not able to for your television), they are saying that you most likely do not have a digital tuner.

All is not lost, however. As stated on the aforementioned site, you can consider one of the following options:

  • Purchase a digital-to-analog converter box that plugs into an existing television. The boxes, which are expected to cost between $40 - 70 will be available for purchase in 2008. Beginning in February 2008, U.S. households can request up to two coupons valued at $40 each. Each coupon can go toward the purchase of a single set-top converter box that will allow you to continue watching FREE "over-the-air" television on an analog set.
  • Subscribe to a cable, satellite or telecommunications service provider if all desired local broadcast stations are carried by that service.
  • Purchase a new television set with a built in digital tuner.

    Listed on the page is further information that may help you to determine the status of your TV:

  • Consult your owner's manual. If that's not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer's website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. You are trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled "digital input" or "ATSC" (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is developing the DTV format).
  • If you bought your TV set before 1998, it probably doesn't have a digital tuner at all. Almost every TV set made before 1998 was a traditional "analog" set that can't display digital TV signals without either a special converter or a cable TV connection. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it's possible there's a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren't great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.
  • If you've purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores have featured digital tuners that will let you receive the new digital over-the-air broadcasts starting in February 2009. But be wary: It's not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as "HD-ready" or "HDTV monitor" sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You'll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection.

    Change comming in february??


    This really depends on your cable provider. Some like the one in my hometown of Abilene, Texas SuddenLink will take care of the transition for all its customers. Of course we are talking about every tv except the old fashion rotary knob ones. Call you cable provider. I know that yours is ready through cable connections. Over the air is questionable.

    The short answer is no. You will not need a converter box. This set contains the ATSC tuner required for the new over-air signals.

    Digital


    From what I see under amazon.com, it does not have a digital tuner.

    But the February 2009 turn off is a deadline for over the air only.
    When cable companies turn off their analog signals is a different matter. Some may soon, some may wait until 2012.

    The gov't coupon program is only good for converters that handle the over the air digital ATSC signals, not cable's unencrypted digital QAM signals.
