Question about LG 37LC7D 37 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have an LG 37LC2D LCD TV that is locked.

All of the buttons on the side of the TV work perfectly. The remote is not able to control anything but the remore works perfectly on another identical set in another room. How do I unlock the set without the remote?

Bad filters on the main board or a bad AUX REMOTE jack on the back of the unit (also part of the main board) are the cause of this problem.

Try plugging in any jack that will fit into the AUX REMOTE jack on the back and then pulling it back out. This may fix the problem or remove any dust that may have collected in the jack. If this jack has something plugged into it (or goes bad) the TV will no longer have remote control operation (because it thinks an external remote box is being used). If this does not work then the main board will need replaced.

Note, many repair techs will think the IR board is bad (the Infra-Red Receiver board) at the front of the TV, but this is usually not the case with this model.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Controls for LG TV 37LC2D don't work

Take a good look at the owner manual for this set, either the control board is not plugged in or what is more likely is the set has a lockout feature for that board.

Some sets now have a panel control lockout and even a remote lockout or both.

its likely locked (the controls) out.

"I have LG 37LC2D TV,when I turn the power on remote controlled or manually it immediately powers off. Is this an issue with the on/off switch inside the tv and how can remedy the problem?"

I have an LG as well.
My troublshooing says:
"Check the power control setting.The power supply may be interupted.
Check if the Auto sleep feature is actiated in the Time settings.
Refer to the " Sleep timer".
If there is no signal while the TV is on, the TV will turn off automatically after 15 miutes or so"

I have a sharp tv/vrc combo without a remote. I'm using a universal remote but wont let me get into the menu. I need to change it from cable to air. Can someone help?

For sharp TV-VCR Combo with universal remore control,

1/ Start by pressing SET & TV at the same time, the LED goes solid RED

2/ Press 009 or whatever code works for your TV.

3/ Confirm that you can now use your control to flip channels..

4/ Just press the blue button 2-/12. That allows you to change from cable to air and vis-versa. Hope that helps.

Lg lcd tv 37lc2d no headphones socket - how do i connect headphones?

You can purchase a cable to connect to the Audio Out ports on the back of the TV. It will have 2 RCA connectors on one side that plugs into the TV and a 1/4" stereo jack on the other end that you will connect your headphones to. You could even pickup a pair of wireless headphones... they will have a volume control on them! I hope this helps.

LG TV no longer responds to the remote control.. Manual use of buttons on the side works fine... model 37LC2D worked fine last night... directv remote which was working will also not not have any...

I have had the exact same problem with my 47LG70 after 13 months of use. I changed my remote control sensor but it did not help. Before you do that, try something simple which seems irrelevant. On this website, others have posted success by plugging in any standing set of headphones into the remote control or headphone jack on the rear TV panel. This solved my problem. So I proceeded to thoroughly dust all of the input/output component jacks on the rear and side of the TV with an air-can. This solved my problem and I do not need to have the headphones plugged in. So try these two things before changing the sensor.

My remote control doesn't work for lg tv model # 37lc2d

have you tried and see if the led is flashing wile looking through a camera on a mobile phone ? this will tell if the remote is faulty.

if its not flashing then open up remote and look for bad joints/connections etc.

the most common is around the led sender and the xtal unit.

Just want to program remote model # rcr311w for

ok dont know the remote you speak of but most are the same.
select TV and SET buttons in that order a red light appears and is steady. Enter the code eg 123 and the light should go out Pres SET again turn set off using power btn then turn on again. If you entered the right code both on/off will have worked. If your remore does not have a set btn then it is a pre programmed remote and is damaged if not working with new batteries Get a Universal remote and follow the instructions to control you TV.
