TV not responding to Remote

I have the same problem as several people on the site. My new 42 in LCD set (42LB4D) has stopped responding to the remote control. It worked fine for a few days (like 3) when we brought it back from the store, nut now it does not respond. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    I have the exact same problem with the LG 42LB4D. Have it up and running for maybe 1/2 an hour and it stopped responding to the remote...only after turning my volume all the way up. I guess I was just wondering what solution on the board here was found to work...is it a firmware thing or does it need to be serviced? Any help greatly appreciated.

    I changed the batteries in the remote thinking this was the problem, no change. I have a seperate infer red system for all my elecrtonics, so I tryed the original remote that came with the TV with fresh batteries, it also did not work. I believe it the infer red senesr is out on the TV.

I have the same problem. LG has to take care of all these problems, it's not one issue, looks like they have mass deffect going on. First my remote, now all buttons on TV are not responding.

LG had a run of bad diodes in some of there lcd tv's recently but have been good about fixing those effected units. Tv's will not respond the remote and may turn on and off by itself and cycle thru channels.

Lg 32lb9d remote wont program to tv


Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.

My original remote with this model stopped working several months ago.I bought a phillips universal remote and that worked fine for several months and that stopped working.I bought a new Phillips...


The first possibility is that the new remote control is a dud out of the box. It can happen. Another possibility is that the remote sensor in the TV has failed. Then the remote is transmitting, but it's not being picked up by the TV. (The lights are on but there's nobody home.) If you can, return the new remote to the store and exchange it. Then, if the set still doesn't respond, you'll need to replace the remote sensor.

42-inch Protron LCD TV Remote Doesn't Work nor Does a Universal Remote Replacement


Your problem is not with the remote but rather the circuitry designed to respond to the signals transmitted by the remote(s)

Find out what board has the circuitry that responds to the remote signals and replace that board. Got a better idea?.
If very expensive then you have 2 choices - deal with a remote less set or get a new one.
