LG LED TV not responding to panel or remote commands

Hello, I ve been having a problem with my tv, bought about a year ago. One day, when i turned the tv on, the front panels buttons kept their lights on (they used to dissapear after the tv switched on) and i couldnt operate the tv neither from the panel nor the remote control anymore. i had to unplug the tv and plug it again. then it worked normally. Now its happening 90 percent of the times i try to use the tv. the only use i gave to the tv was work as a pc monitor via hdmi, and not so many hours a day. nothing strange happened. sometimes If I turn the tv on (thats the only moment when the remote or the panel works) and touch the volume or input buttons, the tv responds but then not anymore. batteries are ok. i dont know what can be happening. I loaded the factory defaults by the menu but the problem stils happening please. help thanks a lot Alan PS: by the way, my tvs back label reads: model 42LE5550-sb (instead of 42le5500) does this means anything?? i havent found anything about 5550-SB .

Hello! I bought a LG 32-inch LCD (32 inch )


My best advice would be to call out your LG service repair engineer, it is most likely the current software in the TV is of an older version & will need to be re-programmed which an engineer should be able to check. This should cure the menu problem.

The TV started acting odd a week ago. Initially, the picture would freeze on a frame but the sound would continue. Using the remote to then turn it off would take a long time for the tv to respond to the...


If it is less than a year old than it is still under Warranty from LG. Their Customer Service Number is 1800-243-000. It sounds like to me it needs a Main Board to be replaced. Let LG help you get in touch with a Factory Service Facility to get you back up running again.
I hope this helps,
