LG Won’t Switch On


Novice Member
I have a 2019 lg oled55b8pla which has stopped working. The red power led is on but when I attempt to switch on the TV two things can happen:

1. Sometimes a some white lines appear at the top of the screen

2. Alternatively I can hear a clicking noise for a few seconds

In either case no picture is displayed and the power on process doesn’t complete.

Any ideas what the problem could be?

I doubt there's a lot you can do with a fault like that, besides unplugging it from the wall for 10-15 minutes to see if that helps.

I would also try new batteries in the remote if you haven't already - they're unlikely to explain a fault like that but you might as well rule them out.

If you have an extended warranty, then getting in touch with the retailer to get it fixed is the next logical step and if you don't, then you should contact the dealer and let them know you're not happy anyway as you would most likely have a case under the Consumer Rights Act, due to the TV not lasting for a 'reasonable length of time' based on the 4-figure sum you presumably paid.

You also try posting in the B8 Owner's Thread in the LG TV Forum.
