Normal Standby Cause


If the LC TV intermittently shuts down, there are a number of factors that may cause this symptom. Enter the service menu and check the NORMAL STANDBY CAUSE and ERROR STANDBY CAUSE (screen 1/29) for the following codes

Normal Standby Cause


The LC TV is designed to shut off in normal conditions that can be selected in the User Menu. This assists with Energy Star power consumption savings. If any of the following numbers or letters appear in the NORMAL STANDBY CAUSE the condition can be changed in the user menu. The Command from RS232C means the unit was turned off via RS232 Command. SLEEP timer command is located on the R/C.

6 7 8 9 A C

Details of Normal Standby Cause No operation off No signal off PC power management mode 1 PC power management mode 2 Off Timer Command from RS232C

Error Standby Cause


The LC TV may also turn off intermittently due to some type of ERROR caused by outside factors. If any of the following numbers appear in the ERROR STANDBY CAUSE, the unit turned off due to one of the reasons listed below

5 13 16 17

Details of Error Standby Cause Prolonged unspecified-signal input in PC mode Temperature error Monitor trouble detected Fan lock

Common No Audio Condition


If the LC TV exhibits a NO AUDIO Condition please check the OPTION area in the user menu to determine if the output select is set to [Fixed] or [Variable]

Common No Audio Condition


The Audio output settings must be set to [Fixed] for an audio signal to be present at the speakers. If the Audio output is set to [Variable] there will be no sound from the speakers.

If a no color (black and white) condition is apparent on all or some input settings, verify the Monochrome control in the User Menu is turned OFF

Missing Segments on LCD Panel


If a segment or block is missing from the viewing area of the LCD panel, the first step is to check the integrity of the FPC ribbon cable connection between the LCD Controller PWB and the LCD panel.

Missing Segments on the LCD Panel


Verify the integrity of the FPC ribbon cables from LCD Controller PWB to LCD panel. There are 4 ribbon cables (2 for the top) and (2 for the bottom) to the LCD panel. If the connectors are good then the LCD controller PWB or LCD panel is at fault.

Lines and Black Segments


If line or black segment is visible on LCD panel viewing area, the first step is to check the integrity of the FPC cables that connect the FRC PWB to the LCD Controller. Various stripped pattern on LCD panel can be due to a loose or poorly connected LVDS cable

Lines and Black Segments


Verify the integrity of the 2 FPC ribbon cable that connect the FRC PWB to the LCD Controller PWB. If these connectors are good the FRC PWB, LCD Controller, or the LCD panel maybe at fault.
