I have an lg 42inch LCD TV which has recently started flickering

Customer Question

I have an lg 42inch LCD TV which has recently started flickering when the TV is turned on. Once the TV has been on for an hour or so it stops and the picture is okay it sometimes responds to applying pressure to the screen in either top corner of the screen. Any ideas?

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

Please tell me its complete model number

KevinWhiteJA :

and how old is it ?

Customer: 42LC2D-EC.AEKLLBP product code
KevinWhiteJA :

OK, does it also flicker with the DVD etc and do you have HDMI or component ?

Customer: My Virgin TiVo uses Hdmi and it happens when that's on we don't have a DVD player.
KevinWhiteJA :

OK, do you have a spare HDMI cable...if yes have you tried to change it

KevinWhiteJA :

If you have tried a different cable then the problem is with the LCD panel or the inverter board itself that is bad and will need replacement
