I opened my LG 32LX1D tv with the remote control and tried to turn it to the dvd input. It did nothing. At first I tought the remote was not responding anymore, I changed the batteries, etc. Nothing worked. So I said, maybe you could turn it off from the pannel and back on again, it might work, but I can't turn the TV off at all. I did not tried to unplug it yet, since I' affraid it would damaged it? Any idea of what is hapenning?

Your DTA remote cannot turn on your LG TV. Find the red/white/yellow cable that was in the box with your DTA and connect it between the appropriate RCA outputs on the rear of the DTA and the corresponding RCA inputs on the rear panel of your TV. Disconnect the cable connected between your DTA and the antenna input of your TV. Be sure your DTA is on. Turn on your TV and select your DTA as the input source. You may have to press SET UP on your DTA remote to display the set up screen on your TV. Do a channel search and you should be all set.
Let's start simple first. Your TV is not responding to either remote control, but specifically if your factory original LG remote does not operate the LG TV, then the problem could be with the IR receiver in the TV itself.
Ensure nothing is blocking the IR receiver on the TV. Move anything out of the way.
Test both remotes to ensure that they are sending an infrared IR signal to the TV. Use a digital camera (such as the one on your phone) and point the remote into the camera lense and press the power/volume/channel buttons. You should see a faint flashing light in your camera viewfinder. This indicates that the remote is sending IR signal. If you don't see anything, then there is no signal. Try FRESH batteries.
If your remotes are working, and since this is an LG, look at the back of the TV by the video inputs. Look for a port called "REMOTE CONTROL IN" or similar. It looks like a 3.5mm headphone jack. This port is used for external remote control and may be dirty.
UNPLUG the TV, then use a regular 3.5mm male headphone jack to plug in and out several times. You basically want to push all the way in and all the way out several times to dislodge any dust and remove any oxidation that has built up in the port. 10-15 times should do fine.
Hello! This is Dan with DISH Network customer support. have you tried cycling the inputs? If you have an HD tv the DISH receiver and your DVD are probably connected using different cables. I would power them both on and hit the input or source button on your LG remote until you get a picture from the dvd player. Remember what input comes up as you will need to change this to go from satellite to DVDand back.
try talking to LG--do not take no for an answer--also someone has bought the circuit city name---people who take no for an answer do not get it fixed---most of these companies if you go high enough up will grant a Concession( it means they will take care of it)
If you have a cable box (otherwise known as a set-top-box) that you have to turn on when you turn the tv on, and you use to change your cable channels, the LG remote will not control it. The LG remote is strictly for the tuner built into the television, and is not capable of controlling the cable box.
You probably see "function not available" because you are viewing the picture on an external input of the tv (component, composite, etc). Your tv cannot tune stations in when it is set to an external input that you use to watch DVD's, cable boxes, games, and other devices. The tv is telling you that you can't change channels if it is on an input.
I think you have to get it checked out by a profesional, unpluging your appliances is a good idea but damage can also ocuur the moment you plug them back on.
If you want to try it could be that a fuse is open there not normal fuses inside (small chip fuses surface mount)
