Question about LG 42LC7D-UB Television

Open Question

Screws provided for 42LC7D won't go into threads for stabalising but screws will go into back of other LG models

I have a LG 42LC7D-AB (the Australian model) and the screws provided to attach a bracket to stabilise the TV against a wall won't go in. A machine expert has told me that the threads are the wrong size and that the metric screws provided won't fit because the threads are imperial.

Dad took the screws back to the place where we bought the TV from and they would go into the back of all the other LGs in the showroom.

In laymans terms, they stuck a part for an American TV in my Australian TV and no amount of LG pretending they will mail the "correct" screws out to me (which they have done three times) will fix it. LG are too stupid to understand this problem, it seems.

They have directed me to spare parts places which say they can't order in the screws as they aren't technically part of the TV. I am not allowed to talk to LG Spares because I am a consumer.

We are in the process of going down to the local hardware to buy imperial screws. If this works, I will post again so other people don't have to waste a month of their life chasing LG incompetence.

I am wondering if this explanation is entirely off the mark. I am wondering if someone else has had this problem. I am wondering if there is a way someone else fixed it and how they went about this. We will have to write to LG if the imperial screws don't work, it seems.

I have a 60 inch LG Plasma tv and the base stand need screws need to know what size screws

See a lot of this kind of problem: easiest way is with the model number call the LG customer service number and get the bolt info for number and thread type---IN ALMOST EVERY CASE THE BOLTS WILL BE STANDARD FINE THREAD AND AVAILABLE AT MOST PLACES LIKE HOME DEPOT.

LG 42LC7D.......Have sound but no picture at all. Light goes from red to green and sounds as though the screen tries to turn on but no picture.

It sounds like you have a logic board problem. It is easy to fix open up your tv on the back and the logic board should be covered with a small metal plate unscrew the it, it uses small screws get the number of that board an order it through is the cheapest

Hi, i have a lg rear projection tv model no. 62dc1d-ab and i was wondering where i can buy a new lamp bulb for it, lamp number p22-hd5, lamp model as-lx60, 31419sn984a. And i also need directions in...

Make sure your TV is turned off at the power switch for at least half an hour. Undo the two screws on the lamp cover which is on the right hand side of the TV as you look at the screen.
Remove retaining screws on lamp case.Lift up fixed wire handle on lamp. Pull out knob slowly and remove lamp case. Insert new lamp gently. Tighten screws. Replace cover.Reset lamp time on menue.

What hold the stand in place? Where are the bolts?

The screws are usually centred in the lower middle part on the rear of the TV, there will be four deep set coutersunk holes where the screws can be found. The stand is fixed to a pedestal arrangement which fits to the underside of the TV.

42LC7D-AB cant find bolts to fit for wall mount

here is the owner manual. look on page 16 and you will see one way to wall mount. Ragarding the size of the bolts needed, go to the hardware store and get one bolt of each size close to what u think u need and use the trial and error method. OR go to an electronics store and ask one of the techies. Be nice and they will help u for free.

Cuts off

Most likely the power supply board.

Lie the tv down on a bed and unscrew the back. Its only about 9 screws around the edge and look at the power board, on the left, see if theres any burn marks.

I have a brand new board I bought the other day for the same issue but before I replaced it, stupidly, I checked with LG and turns out mine is still under warranty so I'm stuck with a new board.

Let me know if you want it. I'll match any price you can find online.
