TV will not power up. Power light fades in/out from red to blue then back to red. Will not turn on from remote or power button on tv. Tried unplugging and plugging back in. ?????

    What kind of cable or dish do you have[?] We had the same problem and Donna fixed it. She is asking the questions. Trust me, she is good at this.[;)]

    Joe, Unplug the TV for the night. Put a fan on the back of it to help get rid of any heat or moisture that might have built up. heck all your connections, especially the plug to make sure there are no breaks in the wire or loose pins in the back of the set. If, that doesn't work, heck the Sunday sales ad for walmart.[;)]

    LG TVs are hit and miss. You get a good one or a bad one depending on the parts used at the time they are assembled.

    The local electronic repair guy said that 90% of the problems he sees with them are cheap components and mostly cheap solder jobs. $150 He will open one up and re-solder all of the connections with silver solder instead of the stuff with a very low melting point he finds in most of the ones he has repaired.

    Motherboard is probably shot. LG made many motherboards that got overheated & died. They were used in several brands of TVs.

    Mine was a 32" vizio that did that several years ago. Electronics shops in my area wanted more than a hundred to even take a look at it. I replaced it for $200.

    Opened the back. No obvious signs of burnt/blown components. The three fuses on the power board show continuity. Unplugged and replugged each connector on the boards. Still does same thing,no worky. So either pay to have it tested for which board is bad,,,randomly replace boards until it works,,,buy new TV. Damit,I wish they lasted more than 3yrs like the old days. [V][V][V]

    Thanks for the help,all.

    I have analyzed this thread and have determined the TV is broke.

    No charge for this service call but next time I accept PayPal, well, I would if I had PayPal and you would send me money.

    I have an LG TV LCD 42" six years now not a hint of a problem but apparently LG likes me and you suk, sorry, telling it like it is

    Had mine about six years, in a couple of weeks cause I got it on my birthday. No problems, but I know it could die any minute. The rear projection RCA that it replaced was over 15 years old. I loved that thing, but it was huge. The LG has a much better picture of course.
    So far, Life's Good.[:D]

    So, you are watching me as I watch my 42" LCD?
    Cause it seems you ain't watching TV LOL

    I intend on getting a new one a little bigger 46-50" and give this one to my kid. I would bet it stops working within a month of them getting it

    TVs are so good with HDMI a DVD is nearly as good as Blue Ray meaning IMO why bother going to a movie?
    When I see it for the first time it is as new to me as in the theater and my Bose surround sound through a Yamaha amp and no crinkling candy wrappers and people blabbing makes seeing things at home so much better than going out.

    That just means i go to the range more often to make up for any need to get out of the house

    However, I have read enough reviews to go with Samsung this time

    The $400 control board saved a 25 cent fuse by blowing first![:I] Seriously-
    Unplug for the night, If you were using a remote control with weak batteries that can sometimes cause problems. BTDT.
