Question about LG 23LX1RV 23 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

DVD Player not working

But for some reason the TV itself works just fine. I've tried using the remote, tried pressing the buttons on the tv (it won't even open), have looked at the manual, and contacted the company--all they could do was tell me to send it in and pay 70 bucks to fix it, or take it back to Circuit City. It was a display model, and I have Dish Network if that helps at all

Need tv code to program remote


To program the Apex DVD player on your Radio Shack or One For All remote, there are several steps involved. Basically you will be using the TV device code 0030 and re-mapping all the buttons. There's several steps to get wrong so I will include lots of error checking so that if you make a mistake you will know where you went wrong. Before you start, you should print off the advanced codes.PLEASE NOTE:This will only work for the AD600A model. There isn't a code in any of the current OFA/RS remotes for the newer models (ie, AD500A, AD660A, AD703A, AD800A, etc)
1. Confirm that you have TV code 0030 on your remote.
(Every remote has this code, I am including this step just for your piece of mind, by all means skip it and come back to it if you have problems).
a. Turn on your DVD player and have is displaying on the TV.
b. Press the TV button.
c. Press and hold the SETUP button (the green P button on R/S remotes), wait for two flashes.
d. Type 0030 and wait for two flashes.
e. Press the POWER button, you should see the VOLUME indicator display on the TV screen.
You have now confirmed that you have the TV code 0030.
2. Re-assign the DVD button.
(On the Cinema 7 remote you will probably want to use the DVD button, on the R/S remotes you might want to chose the AUX2 button. In this example when I refer to the DVD button, I am referring to whichever device key you have selected to control your DVD player).

a. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for the two flashes.
b. Type 992, wait for the two flashes.
c. Press the TV button, followed by the DVD (or AUX2) button. Two flashes.
You have now re-assigned your DVD button to be a TV button, this is so we can enter the TV device code.
3. Assign the TV/0030 code.

a. Press the DVD (or AUX2) button.
b. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
c. Type 0030 and wait for two flashes.
e. Press the POWER button, you should see the VOLUME indicator display on the TV screen.
You have programmed the DVD button to TV code 0030.
4. Program the function buttons.
(You will have to program every button that you intend to use. Don't waste memory by coding buttons that you will rarely, if ever, actually use. If you don't think you will use the numeric keys, for example, don't program them. If you intend to use the volume controls from your TV or amplifier, don't program the volume controls).
I will walk you though setting the POWER button.

a. Press the DVD (or AUX2) button.
b. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
c. Type 994, wait for the two flashes.
d. Press and release the SETUP button. (Don't hold it this time).
e. Type 052 (this is the code for POWER).
f. Press the POWER button, wait for the two flashes.
g. Press the POWER button, your DVD player should turn off.
You have now programmed the POWER button. Repeat the steps above for all the buttons that you want to program.
5. Resetting the DVD device.
In order for "volume punch through" to work, you will need to reset the DVD device button to be a DVD button again. This is only an issue for the Cinema 7, because "volume punch through" only works on the original VCR and CBL buttons on the 15-1994, and even then it will only work with the TV's volume).

a. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for the two flashes.
b. Type 992, wait for the two flashes.
c. Press the DVD button twice. Two flashes.
You have now reset the DVD button.
6. Setting up the volume controls.
You have several choices with the volume controls. You can program them with the APEX codes, which will invoke the DVD players volume controls, you can use "volume punch through", or you can manually set the volume controls to operate the device of your choice. In this example I will assume that you want to use your stereo equipments volume controls and that the stereo is programmed to the CD device button. Please replace the CD button with the TV button in this example if you want to use your TV's volume.

a. Press the DVD (or AUX2) button.
b. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
c. Type 994, wait for the two flashes.
d. Press the CD button, followed by two presses of the VOL UP button.
e. Wait for two flashes.
You have now programmed the DVD's volume up button to control the CD's volume up function. Repeat these steps for the volume down and mute buttons.
7. Setting up a Loophole Menu macro button.
If you have the version of the Apex that has the "Loopholes Menu", then you might want to set up a button to take you right there. It saves having to remember the secret steps. In this example I am going to put the macro on the "S4" button, but you can put it on any button you like, just remember that it will be in effect under all devices.

a. Press the DVD (or AUX2) button.
b. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
c. Type 995, wait for the two flashes.
d. Press the S4 button (or the button of your choice).
e. Press the following buttons in this order (the button names in paranthesis are the buttons that I suggested these Apex functions be assigned to):
STOP, STOP, SETUP (Program), STEP (Move), PREV TRK (CH Down), NEXT TRK (CH Up)
f. Press and hold the SETUP button, wait for two flashes.
It is important to hold the SETUP key until you see the two flashes in the last step. If you release it too soon, the remote will assume that you want the SETUP button to be part of the macro, which will cause some un-expected results when you try using the macro.
Hopefully you have now successfully programmed your remote to handle your Apex DVD player, now you can enjoy movies from all over the world. if you haven't already visited the un-official Apex head quarters, here's the address: www.nerd-out.com/apex.

The remote won't work with tv and the batteries have been changed


Most TV shops can test the remote to see if sending by pointing the remote at it and pressing buttons.

Many digital cameras in a dark room will react with a tiny flash of light on the camera display when the remote is pointed at it and buttons pressed.

The remote may also if not working be repaired by most shops--we get 5 dollars if we can fix one--usually easy money.

Hello
Just unlock it following any one of the methods described below. Then reset it as your desire. One amoung the following methods will surely unlock your RCA and give you option to do others.

Most RCA TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won

Hi Iam trying to program a universal remote control to my sansuni tv vcr dvd combo but haven't had any sucess. I have tried to do it with several different universal remote but none of the codes seem to...


How old are the remotes relative to the TV in question? If the remotes are older than the TV or were programmed within 6 months of this TV being released, then the code you need wasn't included in the remote's programming. In addition, unfortunately, many universal remotes do not work on combination TVs (with the DVD player and VCR built-in).

You can try to search through all the codes for the remote if your remotes have that feature. (On RCA remotes, turn on the TV, press and hold the Code Search button until the indicator light comes on, then press and release the TV button. Then press the On/Off button repeatedly until the TV turns off. Press Enter and see if the other functions of the remote work. If they do not, repeat the search. Then do the same but press the DVD and VCR buttons instead of the TV button.)

More likely you need a newer universal remote, a programmable (via computer USB) universal remote or a substitute remote from the manufacturer. See http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=12845952409830&smodel=TDC2075&brand_pn=SANSUI_TDC2075 for an exact substitute remote that will replace the original remote.

I hope this helps.

REMOTE CONTROL DOES NOT OPERATE DVD


I am having the exact same problem, however I have the official remote that goes with the TV. Have you found a solution to this yet? perhaps its a problem with the TV rather than the remote?

Remote codes


There is another method for locating the codes for the device you wish to control. Although I do not know the specific remote model you have it should work. First though try any of the codes listed here that you have not already tried.
0002, 0179, 0184, 0209, 0236, 0463, 0479, 1479


On a majority of the Comcast remotes you have to follow special instructions for setting up combo devices.
For your TV/DVD.
  • Turn the device on and insert a DVD
  • On the remote press the DVD button once, then press and hold the Setup button until it blinks twice.
  • If you didn't insert the DVD into the player the first time you tried your codes, retry those as well. The most common code for your device is 0236
  • If you entered the code in correctly the DVD button should blink twice if not try it again.
You may also need to enter a separate code for controlling the TV for volume control.
If you still have not found a code that works then use this method to search the stored memory for codes.
  • Turn on the device.
  • On the remote press the corresponding Device key and it should blink once.
  • Press and hold the Setup key until the Device key blinks twice.
  • Now enter 991 on the key pad and the Device key should blink twice.
  • Aim the remote at the Device and press the Power button once.
  • Now press and release the Channel + button continuously until the device turns off.
  • Press the Power button and the devise should turn back on.
  • If the device does not turn back on then press the Channel - until it does.
  • To lock the code press the Setup button.

Again since I am unsure of which model remote you have there is a slight variation to this with other models.
Instead of pressing the Channel+ to scroll through the codes you need to alternate between the Power button and TV button.

If you still are no closer to relaxing while watching a DVD. You may want to consider programing the TV/DVD as separate devices.
All this seems like a real pain so good luck.
I hope this helps, but if not respond with the remote model# and maybe I can do more with that.

Tv on/off and volumn don't work on my dish remote


Hello,

If you are trying to use a Dish Network remote control, then you are probably out of luck. Most Dish remotes do not have remote codes for TV/DVD or TV/VCR combos. There are just too many codes out there to put into one remote control. I'm sure they tried to walk you through a code search (hold the TV button down, etc.), so if it didn't show up then, then you are probably stuck with using two remotes or adjusting manually.

If they didn't try a code search, then try this:

Turn the TV on manually. Then, press and hold the clear TV button at the top until all the buttons at the top turn red, then release. Press and release the TV power button (the smaller red power button), and press the channel up button. Repeatedly press and release the channel up button about once a second until the TV turns off by itself, then press and release the # button at the bottom right hand corner of the remote, and the TV button will flash 3 times, confirming that it took the code. Press and release the clear SAT button at the top left, and then you should be good to go.
If the TV never turns off during the code search, and the TV button at the top of the remote flashes a bunch of times everytime you press channel up, then there are no more remote codes. The remote does not have the code for your TV.

Hope this helps you.

TV dont respond


Hello psp007,

I hate to be the one who tells you this, but you have one of those TV sets that are controlled by a single processor (as most combos have even LCD combos) and that processor may have gone bad. This is why you have so many problems at one time. I would suspect the the main processor board has a problem. You may want to take this to a TV repair shop, because there is so little you can do for this problem since if it is the main processor you will need equipment to troubleshoot this problem and to remove and install the component with the problem. Taking it to a shop is your best bet.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,
Shuttle83.
