Re: LG 70LB7100 no backlight after 2-5 min

As a general rule, NEVER run the backlights at 100% I set mine at 75, MAX of 80%. set it around 70% and it may work fine for a while. ( my 65" lasted 2 years till I found a new LED strip.

Re: Backlight, Brightness, and Contrast settings

Contrast and brightness do not affect the backlight. The lower you set the backlight the better. I try not to go over 75% and usually n70% is fine.

Re: Backlight, Brightness, and Contrast settings

the backlight control is the LED killer. I set mine to 75%. On some sets you may have to turn off the auto dimming to change the backlight setting(vizio).

Re: Sony BRAVIA KDL-V40XBR1 Horizontal static lines on screen

Vertical static lines are almost always a tab bond (panel ) problem.

Re: Vizio m3d550kde no jingle but vertical lines on screen

Do the lines move around? Does it change when the menu is displayed? If so you may have a bad main board. Usually a regulator on a Vizio. That would explain no audio. Had a Sony with lines like that...

Re: Panasonic 48" LED TV, backlight on but no picture

Check for voltage on both sides of the TCON fuse. It should be near one of the connectors

Re: SAMSUNG UN46D6420UFXZA bad t-con

Re: LG 32LN530B picture upside down

Do you have a service remote? On most LC tv's you have to use a service menu to access/use the service menu. You can get one on Ebay.
