Though some flights were still landing and taking off, delays were still possible, the FAA said.
The limited ground stop was lifted around 9 a.m., but residual delays were expected throughout the morning, officials said.
Some flights from the West Coast headed for LAX were kept on the ground in their cities of origin.
Technicians were working to fix the problem, but travelers with plans in or out of LAX were urged to check with their airlines for possible delays.
