Remedies to Common Picture Problems in an LG TV

Over many years Tech 1 has seen every kind of problem while repairing LG Televisions in the Sydney area.
So here’s one common problem we’ve come across which you may be able to fix on your own before having to call us for help.
An LG TV is one of the most durable brands of television in the market today. Still, like all appliances, it is not built to last a lifetime and would most likely incur some type of damage after some period of being used and abused. You should therefore not get agitated when you begin to see signs of damage on your LG TV. Find out first if you can fix it by yourself without any help from a professional.
There are times when the damage is just very minor and can be easily fixed at the comfort of your own home, so paying good money for repairs is truly unnecessary. For example, if your TV has distorted or poor picture quality, do not panic yet and call professional repair service providers in haste. First thing you can do is to access the menu and check the options, you might have accidentally triggered a setting from the menu that set the problem to start.
However, if the problem persists, it might already be due to hardware damage, here are some tips on how to remedy common picture problems most likely incurred by your LG TV.

Things you will need:

  • Dry hands
  • Coaxial cable
  • De-Gaussing cable
  • Gloves
  • Screw driver.

Steps to follow:

  1. Check the connecting cable between your television and your cable box. This cable is known as the coaxial cable and it can be found at the rear part of the television. The cable has a metal tip and is usually made from copper. The cable is normally attached to the connector that is on the television. Most times the distorted pictures are usually caused by a damaged coaxial cable. To improve the picture, all you need do is twist the cable to different directions while it is still plugged to see if the quality improves. If it doesn’t then you may have to purchase a new coaxial cable.
  2. Next you will need to examine the metal fitting to ensure that it is in good working condition. If there are dents or scratches on the cable itself, it may reduce the conductive strength of the cable and may need to be replaced. The replacement fittings can be bought from electrical supply stores.
  3. Distorted pictures can sometimes be caused by highly disruptive appliances as well such as a vacuum cleaner or an electric fan. Keep these things away from your TV and see if the picture goes back to normal.

Following these steps should do the trick, however, if the problem persists, the damage may already reside in the TV fitting itself. At this point, you would already need a professional to work on your appliance.
