when i push the on button tv turns on or makes clicking sound timmer light flashes and turn off. another thing is when i push device on remote or tv the tv turns off or screen turns blue then shuts off


I would start by pressing the reset button on the front of the screen. After you are able to turn the tv on, press menu the 2470 then press enter on the remote to reset the tv. This might fix your problem. If not suspect the E2P, and if that doesn't work your DM is faulty and needs replaced.

can the service menu for the LG 52sz8d dlp tv be accessed from the orig remote not the service remote just installed new lamp and tv was working fine for 1 week now the lamp indicator light comes on and flashes red then shuts off


Hi there,

One possible solution to access the service menu on LG tv's is as follows with steps 1 - 4:

1. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the TV front panel.
2. While holding that button, press and hold the MENU button on your remote.
3. Hold both buttons for ~5 seconds until the service menu comes up on the TV.
4. Release the remote MENU button first, then the TV MENU button.
If you are looking to reset the lamp indicator then continue with the following steps 5 - 11:

5. Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV front panel.
6. While holding that button, press and hold the MUTE button on the remote.
7. Hold both buttons until the Lamp Life Hours show up on your TV screen.
8. Release the MUTE button first, then the ENTER button on the TV front panel.
9. Make a note of the lamp hours if you want.
10. To reset the lamp hours, press the SELECT button (the one between the four arrow keys with two concentric circles on it) on your remote.
11. It will ask you to confirm the reset--press SELECT again to confirm.

To verify you've reset the hours, you can repeat steps 1-9 above and then just press the EXIT button on your remote.

Hope this helps. Regards, James.

With the remote press menu 2470 enter then do a system reset after the set has reinitialized this should fix your problem, you will have to reprogram your channel settings afterwards though.
