I'm posting on behalf of my uncle, who's LG RE44SZ21RD has died. I said I'd look on the forum to see what info I could come up with and was fairly shocked to see that this is not an isolated incident! Despite searching the various threads I was hoping I might be able to describe the problem and see if anyone has a quick fire solution as he's out of warrraty and the dealer's not interested........ Basically his description is that it powers up into standbye but when he goes to switch it to a channel it sounds like it's about to come on....but just falls back into standbye....Does this problem ring a bell with anybody? Is the unit now scrap or is it as simple as a loose internal connection? Any help appreciated.
