Have you tried going to LG's website? There you should be able to enter the model number of the television, and download a manual there. Be sure to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed because 99% of the companies will have it in P.D.F. format. If they do not have the downloadable manual on thier site, find thier customer service number and ask them to mail you a new one. Good Luck!

LCD 42 LG TV won't change channels with channel button only with numbers

First check with fresh batteries. that does not resolve it If a universal remote- try a different code. If original remote, press the "TV" button first to make sure it is using the right parameters. If still not resolved, the issue may reside in the IR circuit of the set.
