LG 37LP1D 37 in. LCD Television - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

It all depends on the DISH system and the TV. For the most part the CC signal is carried on the cable from the box to the TV. Not sure how you have the DISH connected to the TV, but lets assume its HDMI. Connected this way you should be able to go into the TV settings (use the remote that came with the TV, NOT the dish remote) and go into the settings or menu. From there look for audio. In the audio menu is a section for CC. You should be able to turn it on from there. Or just check on the LG remote. They sometimes have a CC button that you simply push to turn it on. Hope this helps

Based on your description, it appears that you have main board issues with your unit since your controls do not work and some inputs are NG.

Subtitle setting is in the dvd setting not the tv, If the DVD would have CC it would be on the case, CC is encoded in to the tv signal

Probably the internal power supply has failed.

Check power outlet. Change it to another and try. Change input device to something that works. Look for any jammed buttons on the remote. Switch off TV manually, switch off power outlet, remove plug and cool it off for 48 hours and retry. If it does not work even then, this may need attention by a qualified service technician.

The 3.4 should be for the microprocessor area and comes from the standby portion of the power supply-----that voltage should be on all the time so look carefully where it comes from---some sets use a op-amp IC to switch it on etc and others a relay---

Like a car with no power or voltage start at the battery working outwards.

With that voltage missing the set should have no operation at all.

I also tried re-soldering joint L781 on the main power control board (see Solutions #2 and #7). It worked. My 15 inch Dell flat panel LCD is working again, white screen gone. The solder around the pin did looked different to to the other joints...a very slight gap around the pin as though it wasn't contacting properly. To locate L781, look at the bottom of the PCB (the side with the soldering) with the power plug socket at the edge closest to you. L781 is in the top left quadrant of the board, about 2 inches in from left, 1 inch down from the top. For good measure, I also tried the solution that suggested trimming a millimeter of the end of the two data ribbons that plug into the smaller control board, although I couldn't see anything wrong with the data ribbons. I did this at the same time as resoldering L781 so not sure if it made any difference.

i have the same problem with the closed captions... i believe to turn off the captions you have to use the remote. press the CC button repeatedly until closed captioning turns off. in my case i lost my remote so i am unable to use the method to solve the issue. Can someone please confirm that this works. so i can buy a replacement remote. Thx

If the closed caption is shaded out in the menu, this usually means closed caption is not an option. Closed caption can not be turned on if the TV is on component, RGB, DVI, Or HDMI inputs. The closed caption will need to be turned on by using the set-top box or other device that is connected to TV inputs. or if the tv is connected directly to the cable line or anteanna

could be your main power board going bad...

It seems that your unit has some sort of Video side, PSU fault, or a problem to the Video section that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

The power supply is a common fault on this model.

Buy a replacement from www.chsinteractive.co.uk

Not cheap though.
