Can anyone help i brought this TV a couple of years ago and recently it started losing the picture but still had sound.
Now when ever we switch it on we get the lg logo but then that goes off and we just get a black screen with sound , if you look carefully at the screen you can see the picture. I tried changing the cables but that did nothing i tried plugging a dvd in and that doesent work either. I took the back of and switched it on i can see the back light come on when the lg logo is there but then that goes off and im left with a black screen. Can anyone give any suggestions to this.plzzzzzzzz
