Re: stays on one channel

Obviously ensure your batteries are good. It may well be though that the TV pickup is bad and possibly the micro-controller in the TV has gone as well.

Why won't any universal remotes work with my LG tv?

The two possible reasons are:

1. None of the codes are correct for this model.

2. The remote infrared receiver in the set is bad.

(maybe the reason the other person got rid of the set?)

There are some ways around this depending on how you hook up and what you have for signal:

If a box (cable or sat) is connected to one of the sets of audio/video jacks on the set--switch to that input and change channels etc with the box!

Use the box remote for functions like channel and sound etc.

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.

My television set is stuck on one channel....the audio changes with the channel but the picture stays blurred on one channel...whats wrong with it?

Lots of possibilities. If you are using the remote, try also using buttons on the TV to change channels. If TV buttons work, the remote is broken or perhaps try changing batteries and cleaning battery contacts on the remote. If neither work, lots of other things to try. You may need to set preselect channels, so your TV thinks there is only one channel out there until you do. If you are on a cable box you just need channel 3 and change channels on the cable box. I can't tell what you mean by "audio changes with the channel" ... if you mean that when you try to advance channels, it increases volume and moving down in channels lowers volume that would be strange -- if you are using a programable remote it might not be set correctly (try another programming code). The "blurred" picture is probably symptomatic of having the set on the wrong channel, and if you could set channel it might clear up ... I'd start with getting channels to change. If you need more help, give the brand and model of TV, say if you are using a remote (original or programable), and what the 'audio changes' comment means in more detail. Probably worst case is that your tuner circuit is fried, but don't assume that without more diagnostic.

I have a visco TV and I cannot get it off of channel 1. The remote does not work so I bought a universal remote but it still won't work. I tried to codes for NEC and Polariod as suggested by others,...

There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. 
I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used?
Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well.

Iv tuned in a new dgital tv, but channel 1 and 2 dont tune it, programs start a 3, if u go backwards, its channel 805 i think press the remote button to analauge and u get channel 1 and 2 but not good...

If you've got a digital box from your cable provider, your tv most likely needs to be on channel 3. At that point you would use the remote that came with the digital box to change the channel. (in other words, your tv would always stay on channel 3)

Remote codes for dish network remote?

1. Mmanually turn on the device (TV, DVD, etc.)
2. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH button until the red indicator stays on, then release the CODE SEARCH button.
3. Press and quiclkly release the desired mode button 9TV, DVD, etc.). The red indicator blinks off once.
4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device (TV, DVD, etc.) changes channel. The red indicator blinks once with each button press. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, use the CHANNEL DOWN button to backtrack through the library until the device again changes channel. Pressing the CHANNEL UP changes direction to forward again.
5. Press and release the MUTE button to install the code.

or try these
002 009 109 202 209 210 310 402 408 508 510 807 901 914 917 good luck its one of these!
