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.

Re: TV not responding to Remote

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.

Re: TV not responding to Remote

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.

Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. 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.
You here reports that even the new remote too does nor responds. Which remote did you bought? An original one or a universal remote? If it is an original one, and even your set do not respond it, the infra-red sensor inside the TV is faulty. Replace it. Contact any service technician. If it is a universal remote control; you have to set it up with the set-up codes said to Philips brand TV [The setup code list will accompany with package of each universal remote control], to work with it.
Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here.

One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts.

Remote control stopped working

The problem can be in the IR receiver, it either not getting the 5vdc, or it failed, or the logic board is bad.
You will need to find out if the signal get to the logic board when the IR receiver gets the signal from the remote control.
