Question about LG 42PG20 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I have a LG 42PG200 Plasma TV my problem is that the TV switches on automatically during the night usually somewhere betwen 12:30am to 1:30am. No preset timings set. Usually comes on with same channel each time (channel V - music channel) and on a low volume setting and the remote info button won't work . The only button to work on remote is usually the 0n/off power button but sometimes you can change channels. This is an intermittant problem occurring usually once or twice a week. I have not consulted my supplier yet I am just curious to find out if others have the same problem before I complain.

I also had this same problem. Both the original remote and my universal remote failed to give any response on the TV. Normally the green light flashes when it receives a command from the remote. Called LG Support and they made me an appointment with a local repair company for 3 days later. This seemed pretty quick compared to other companies repair times I'd read about. However next day the repair company called to say it would be 5 more days before they could get a Tech to my location (downtown ATL). 8 days was a long time to wait but once tech arrived he diagnosed it to a bad board and simply went to his truck and swapped it out with mine under factory warranty. Everything has been fine since.

The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

When you boot up your tv for the first time, you get to choose between home and shop-mode.
In your case, he TV is set to "shop-mode".
Then it will go back to factory settings after 5-10 minutes. (so that customers won't mess up the settings all the time)
So change the settings from shop to home, and your problem is fixed!
