Look on the back panel for a remote control plug . Get a headphone plug and spray some WD 40 on it and push it in and out of that plug . Plug the tv back in and see if it works . It worked for me .

I have a LG 42PC5DC TV. There are continuous horizontal lines going through the picture. Any ideas of what is wrong?


Is there any other electrical or electronic devices near the TV? If there are, move them away from the TV and see if that clears up those lines. IT could be some kind of interference. Or if there are video games hooked up,,disconnect them also.

What's your problem?Won't stop changing channels


Hello,

there is every possibility that the channel (ch - and ch +) button on the TV is stuck. This can make the TV channels change by itself. This also applies to the remote control (if any).

Turn off the TV, use your thumb to flip through the channel (ch - and ch +) button on the TV. This will free the stuck button. Also, check the channel (ch - and ch +) buttons on the remove and make sure it is also not stuck in.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, then it means fault is from the control board inside the TV. It maybe defective or needs servicing.

The board controls the buttons on the TV and it can be found on the position of the channel (ch - and ch +) inside the TV.

Note that TV stores a lot of current. So if you want to disassemble the TV to check the board allow the current to discharge by remove the TV plug from the wall and wait for about 1 hour before attempting to disassemble the TV.

Let me know if you need more assistance...

Regards.

My mintek dtv-373-d is stuck on encrypted channela nd will not do anything else. I can't get the menu to come up or anything to change. help


I'm assuming you have Cablevision. This is becoming a known problem with their broadcasting system. They have been upgrading and it has been causing the TVs to freeze up on a specific channel .

Simple way to fix it:
1. Unplug tv
2. Unplug coax from tv
3. Plug tv back in
4. In the Menu go to Setup > CH setup > CH Memory > Cable (digital)
5. Enable channel skip for channel that it is currently stuck on
6. Push Menu to exit
7. Change to any other channel
8. Reconnect coax to tv.

Followup:
Avoid this channel and go give Cablevision a call and let them know about it. They won't do anything to fix it until they get a certain number of reported issues about the problem

TV gets stuck on channel, won't advance past channel 7.1


Try doing the Channel Search again. See if that helps.

If not, sounds like the Digital Board could be defective. Since this TV is brand new suggest calling your local sharp authorized service center to replace that board under warranty.
