    thanks for your help

    hi, the button comes up on my computer, so maybe it's only available on the computer input and the hdmi inputs.

    Which "screen" button are you talking about (on the set itself, menu, etc)?

Is it this way no matter what input you are on? Try switching to each input and then going into the menu to see if it is still greyed out each time? If it stays greyed out, then you have a bad main board.

ebay is your best bet. Try and find a nonworking set with a good panel. A new replacement panel will cost as much as a new set.

Model: LG 42LC7D Closed caption/text option is "greyed" out and I am unable to use this option. How do I fix this?

If your using the RGB inputs or A/V inputs I do believe that feature is disabled. You have to use the closed caption capabilities with the cable box or satellite from with-in them, which ever you may have. The CC is only active in the menu when cable is directly connected to the RF jack for input on the TV, which can be the cable box also. Hope this helped.

Black box appears in middle of screen

go into the menu and look at the closed caption option----if TEXT is highlighted--this is your problem---select CC! or if it has it OFF.The TEXT will only appear on certain channels and it most likely was activated by someone changing the closed caption options. If this has been helpful give me a vote to let me know.

Channel box appears on screen with "Mono" flashing. When this appears on screen remote will not operate tv. Also, if TV is turned off will automatically come back on in about 5 to 10 minutes

I have a similar problem with my LG LCD TV Model 42LC7D. Manufacturer has service bulletin on my problem, may have service bulletin for your problem also.
