Can you get the model number off of the back of the LG set please?

Also, how OLD is it?

Are there currently ANY signs of life on the TV at all (power light, etc.)?

5 years old don't have access to the model number right now and there is a light
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

It's hard to trouble shoot an unknown set, but I can try. What color is the light?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Red and green
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay green usually means on and red means off, so please elaborate.

Blinking in the back green
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

That means the Mainboard has failed in most cases, and requires replacement. How big is this TV (roughly)??

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
60 inches and how much would that cost
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

Let's try a hard reset first, and then we can go from there. The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up normally. Try this procedure up to 2 times, and please let me know what happens.

Are you able to perform those steps, or are you not with the TV right now?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Doing it now
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Nothing happens
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay, this indicates a hardware failure. The clicking, green blinking light in the back, and red light on the front all point directly to a mainboard failure, and requires this board be replaced. The average cost on a 60" LG set (actual price varies based on model number) is in the $300-$350 range total. If you'd like, you can use the link below to locate a shop in your area:

Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix.
