Default 47" LG 47LV4400 LCD/LED TV wont turn on!

Hey there, a few weeks ago I created a topic regarding if the TV we had would be good etc.... Ended up getting the 47LV4400.
So far had worked great until yesterday,

Last night and this morning the TV refuses to come on. The "standby" light remains solid red at all times as long as the TV is plugged in, I can hit the power key on the remote, or on the TV side and nothing happens.

What could be wrong? This TV was working just fine before yesterday! no big changes have been made either, its been sitting in the same place since we bought it and placed it there 3 weeks ago!

Yes, soon after we found out it wouldn't turn on last night it was left unplugged all night, plugged it back in this morning at 7am and still only the solid red standby light on. Nothing would respond.

I'm having EXACTLY the same issue. I turned off the TV last night and now it will not turn on from Standby. I've changed batteries in the remote and nothing. Also, using the power button on the side panel and no change. I've reviewed LG's website and have found nothing to help with sorting this as well.

Hey everyone, this isn't going to be a fun way of telling you what the fix is, but the two circuit borads that are connecting in the back ended up being fried. Yeah, a new model that had only been used for less than 2 months, fried.

We had to call LG and they had a service call out for the next day which was great, but then we found out the dreaded news.

It wasn't that it sucked to have to wait for the repairman, but we also found out that one of the two circuit boards were on backorder...

We are now (starting since I posted this thread) JUST about to get the circuit board popped in later today and finally watch TV again.

Sorry guys, but call LG!

Pricing on this set is so attractive -- Kmart has it for $650 + sales tax -- very cheap for an LED edge-lit TV -- but I have read so many reviews citing this same problem of the screen going black within 15-45 days of purchase that I think I am afraid to buy one. Does anyone know whether there is a problem with the components of this particular model, or is it more widespread at LG? I'm thinking about buying a Vizio instead.

I think I'm going to box mine up and take back to Sam's and exchange it. I bought mine Dec. 1 and left for work overseas and just got back last week and now this is happening to a brand new TV with barely 10 days of use. This is very not cool....

Default The same problem with my LG tv too

Hi All,

Bought this TV in Jan, 2012 from Kmart due to their lowest price..... and now all of a sudden it stopped working with the same problem as mentioned above. Fixed RED light. Called up LG and they have set an appointment with one of the Authorized service centers technician. But, when I called up the service center they said they would be ordering for some parts from LG and once they get that part only then they would send their technician to fix the problem, and it would take atleast 2-3 weeks for the entire process. Its a very common problem (not sure if its particular only to this model) and the lady who answered the call just asked for the exact problem I am facing with the TV and they have ordered for the part saying we know the exact issue.

I cannot replace or return this TV to Kmart since I have already crossed the 30 day bracket.....any idea/suggestion on how to get this replaced from LG. One of the member mentioned that LG have agreed to replace this.....

Just a suggestion on the TV problems.. First of all unplug the TV from the wall. As soon as you unplug source hold down the power button on the side of the TV for 1 minute without releasing till the one minute is over. After that plug TV power source back into wall the try turning on TV.
