    My 'energy saving' TV

    I have an LG 32" LCD TV and it has one of them stickers saying:

    Energy Saving Recommended

    This is great although there isn't even a switch off button on it, if i dont plug it off at the wall it will just stay on standby. Surely this cant be energy saving.

    Does it mean it doesnt use much energy when on?

    Just confused about why its energy saving if it can only be on standby.

    Have you got an energy monitor you can plug into the socket to test it's usage? I'm interested to know. otherwise try reading the manual.

    What model is it? What does the manual say about the Energy Saving feature?

    If it's an LCD for instance, there will be an energy saving function for the backlight.

    BTW, All devices have an off function- you turn it off at the mains!

    I got an lg lcd aswell and I know what your talking about. You have to change the option in your tv by going to menu. There should be one saying 'power light indicator' or something similar which you have to turn off, the red light doesn't stay on once you change it:thumbsup:

    As guru has already said, this is mainly for the backlight (the brighter it is, the more current it pulls).

    I think the LGs have a sensor that kicks in a dims the backlight if you are in a darker room (or maybe the other way around, I forget which).

    It won't be the standby, as that will usually be minimal current draw anyways.
