Question about LG Televison & Video

1 Answer

No buttons work on LG 47LG5000. Neither remote nor the TV side buttons work but I can access all features by holding down 2 buttons for 15 seconds (eg. MENU and INPUT held together first brings up the input on-screen menu, second time round that combination brings up the main TV settings menu). TV will turn on by pressing a number on the remote but nothing else works remotely. Help,please.

Check to make sure you have power to unit. If you do you may have a internal power problem. Have you gone thru a recent lighting storm? If so see your home insurance co. For coverage to repair or replace unit.

SOURCE: 42 inch LCD Vizio. "no signal"

Just hold down the input button on the right side of the tv. This is the bottom one. So,
With the tv off,
press and hold the bottom button (input)
when the tv turns on, and you see the input menu
release and press the button to put the tv into a mode that works!
Thanks

SOURCE: no picture

I purchased four 2200uf @ 25v capacitor’s for $8 at that same repair shop. I upgraded to 25v because these will run cooler. The tv came with 10v Samxon caps that seem to be problematic in all the units they were used in. Do not buy Samxon if you do this yourself.... I opened the set by taking off the plastic back panel and then by removing the second metal panel. There are three boards and a hard drive. The board on the far left just above where the plug goes in is the power supply board. There are five data cables and one red power cable attached to it that can be removed simply by unplugging them. The board is fastened to the unit with five small screws, one on each corner and one in the middle of the right side. If you look for three green capacitors grouped together around the middle of the board and slightly off to the right, you will probably see one that is bulging out at the top. This is most likely "C235", the main problem. The other three caps that need replacing are C202, C201 and C219. C219 is closer to the top part of the board.....
The process to replace is simple, believe it or not, and it could save you hundreds of dollars. 1, Go to RadioShack and buy a cheap soldering iron and a small roll of solder. 2, Buy four, 2200uf @ 25v capacitors, online or at an electronics store. 3, Plug the soldering iron in and let it heat up. 4, Locate C235 on the back side of the board and mark the negative terminal with a felt tip marker (you want to make sure that you put the negative terminal on the capacitor through the right hole, otherwise you will pop the cap. The negative terminal is clearly marker on all the capacitors). 5, With needle nose pliers, grip the cap and pull down while heating up the terminals. The cap will eventually come out. 6, Put the new cap in (you may need to heat the solder that is left on the board to clear the hole so it can push through). 6, When both terminals are through, bend them slightly so it stays in place. Take the solder and stretch out a few inches off the roll and while holding it in one hand, lightly touch the base of the terminal where it comes through the board, with the soldering iron and the solder at the same time. --- Try not to use too much solder.. you only need a tiny drop. This will solder the cap in place. 7, cut off the terminals close to the board with some snips and repeat this on the other three. 8, put the board back in, plug in the cables. Test the TV before putting the back panels on. It should work fine if all went well..... If you hear a pop than you reversed the terminals on a capacitor and that one will need to be redone correctly.... This might sound lengthy and potentially difficult but its worth a try. Otherwise you can pay someone to replace the entire board for BIG BUCKS with the same junk caps on it and have the same problem in a year or so. LG doesn’t want to take responsibility for this and I'm sure that it has cost a lot of people a lot of money for about $8 in parts........... This worked for me and it can work for anybody with the same problem.. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Powerlock Enable cannot be removed from my ViewSonic N3246w.

I have a 19" ViewSonic and if you hold down the 2nd and 3rd buttons together under the screen, counting from the LEFT, it will disable the Powerlock.

The picture on my lg tv has gone dark. Every button on the remote is working except the menu button.The button on the side for menu is not working either.


Check and repair the remote control. It sounds that it need cleaning. But lack of brightness to a Plasma screen might be to a faulty Z Sustain board. Check this for more details about the TV fualts, and to how to repair and clean a remote control.

Hello I'm finally back again I got a customers LG tv Model #37lg30 it does not respond to the remote the buttons on then side alow us to operate the tv I tried the remote on another


Check on the back of the TV to see if you have a "remote in" port. It will look the same as a 3.5mm headphone jack. Unplug the TV and plug a pair of headphone into the port and then remove it. Do this several times to breakup any debris that may have gotten into it or corrosion that may have occurred in the port. If something is in the port it will disable the standard remote sensor on the TV.

I own an ilo flat screen tv and my remote doesn't work, where can i replace it or get it fix


You can get an exact replacement remote here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=42PX3DCV&uuid=13014384668260 . Alternatively, try searching for a replacement at an LG distributor: http://www.lg.com/us/support/parts/support-find-parts.jsp .

Assuming that the sensor is working, any universal remote should work if it was programmed at least 6 months after the TV was released. Try all of the LG codes until you find one that makes all of the features work on the TV. (The absence of Menu and Input buttons can be frustrating with some TVs.)

One way to tell if the remote is working is to take a picture of the IR beam side of the remote when someone else presses a button on the remote. Use a digital camera (like the one in a cell phone). If the remote is working a bright light will appear in the picture when you review it.

If the remote actually is sending a signal, check if the buttons on the TV work. That will determine if the sensor has failed or if the entire board has failed. You may be able to obtain these parts from the LG distributor or http://www.partstore.com.

I hope this helps.

I do not have a remote for my model LG 42lc50c and i cannot get to switch from AV2. Is there a way to do this without a remote?


The button that switches from AV2 is the "Input" button, on the lower right side of the TV. But keep in mind, another Audio/Video source needs to be plugged into another input (located on the back of the TV) in order for this to work. The TV has to recognize multiple input sources to switch between them.

LG LCD and LG DVD remote codes


If both units are LG you don't have to program anything. Below the power button are 6 buttons labeled TV, DVD, etc. As soon as you push the DVD button the remote should work it. Remember to push the TV button again to make it work the TV.
