    Please do a hard reset to the unit by unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and keep the power button on the tv set pressed for 1 minute release the button wait for 10 mins and then reconnect the power cable and try scanning the unit with remote using channel scan that will fix the issue, it is normal that it freezez on the menu due electrical interference that requires a static energy release once in a 10 days.
    Download the manual too from this link

The motherboard in the tv may be bad. From the problem you stated it will need to be taken to a reapair place. LG support should be able to fix it or in alternative you could take it to a geek squad. thank you for using fixya!

How do i change the ip address of my printer ..i printed out the menu page and it list an old ip address that i can no longer access


From the operator panel saying "ready". Scroll through the menus to "Network Menu", then scroll to "Standard Network", then to "STD Net Setup", then "TCP/IP", then "Set IP Address". Once you make the desired changes (move through octets using "select" changing numbers using "menu"), make sure to save by pressing the select button until it says "saved".

Apple tv to optical audio on avr 1601


You need to assign the optical input to the video input you are using. It's under the 'Input Setup' menu.

Or use HDMI, it will output the audio thru the HDMI connection. Once again assign the input under the Input Setup menu (press the Menu button on remote to access setup menus)

No longer getting video feed through Home Theatre receiver


HDMI ports 5 and 6 on the back of tv no longer are working. (We had a series of thunder storms so don't know if that is how they got damaged or if it was something else) but moved HDMI input cable to HDMI port 4 on tv and everything is working again. Service call placed for warranty service on tv to repair bad ports.

Your best solution is to get rid of that crappy TV! Having an old tube Tv really makes the rooms look bad.

Cant access input jacks


Go into the setup menus IE:Video,Audio etc: The last page has the video label option. It is there where you select the label you want to give such as VHS,Beta,DVD etc. You can also select SKIP and that is why you can't access those inputs. Select any label besides SKIP and your issue will be gone.
