SOURCE: LG TV renote not worknf on 4 new sets

Hello,

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 hope this helps you...

Deleted my channels how do I restore


If this is an HD TV you don't have to scan the channels if you have a cable box, U-Verse or Satellite Receiver.
Find your TV remote. If it's a Samsung TV or LG TV or whatever, that is the remote you need. Not the one you normally change channels with.
On the remote, look for a button marked Input or Source or TV/Video.
Hit that button repeatedly until it highlights HDMI or Component. There may be several of each. If your cable box or receiver is on, you should get a picture on one of those inputs.
The TV will not be on a number channel.
If this is a Tube TV, you have already done all you can. Your TV is deceased.

My LG TV doesnt respond to remote control. it works when i operate it manually but as soon as i press any button on the remote, the channels keep running on their own. none of the buttons appear stuck.


First thing I would suggest is have the remote tested--understand the remote and the buttons on the set go to same place--buttons have priority-

A remote can be tested--most testers you point the remote at and press any button and the tester flashes briefly--in this case if it continues to flash something got spilled inside the remote--this can be dealt with usually--also some digital cameras with them on it can be pointed at and same thing done--will see momentary flash on camera screen--if press a button and continues to constantly flash--it likely is the channel buttons on the set (up if channels scan up and down if they scan down.)

NOT likely but possible the problem is in the set--checking the remote will tell that--if you get that far I can give you general instructions about taking the remote apart and what to look for and do.

Test remote first---no sense in taking it apart until you know--got any friends with a similar LG you could test your remote on their set.

Channel scan only finds 1 channel with basic cable setup on LG 42LD520


if you have a cable box just plug the cable box into a scart socket on the tv, switch the tv to the scart input and use the cable remote to change channel?Scanning for channels wont find anything because you are receiving the channels on a cable box. If you are refering to standard or digital tv signals and your not receiving any channels then either you are only scanning analogue tv and therefore wont pick up any digital tv channels, or your ariel is inadequate to receive an acceptable digital reception and will need to be upgraded. please state country you are in and what you are expecting to receive
