Not something you can fix yourself. Find a repair company.

The last hurrah.

I always try this old reset.

Unplug all cables from the set, then pull the mains power. Give it over 10 minutes. Apply power and nothing else. Turn on and try a menu button to see if something shows on screen.

That's about all we can do without being a tech or engineer.

LG 60 in smart TV same issue
by Kasoh / October 11, 2016 8:05 AM PDT

Our tv is less than 90 days old, LG won't replace. From research seems picture going black with sound remaining is a common issue. LG should recall and stand behind their products. We paid a lot of money thinking we were getting a quality product, so disappointed.

What country is this?

I rarely see makers replace a failed unit after the first 2 weeks. They repair it. Are you asking that anything that fails inside warranty be replaced?

That's not a good idea and not for a reason you may be thinking. Look at the bathtub curve at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathtub_curve

There are 2 reasons you want LG to fix it.
1. If all the LG 60's were made the same, you may see another failure in 90 days.
2. The repair should change item 1 with a fix to the issue and address the first part of the curve.

Yes, it's all annoying but if you get into reliability you can't escape the bath tub curve.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
