Question about Televison & Video
My remote used to work well but of late doesn't respond consistently (easier to change channels manually from the back of the tv) and batteries when new will not last 3 days.
Dirty contacts inside battery compartment, or inside on circuit board , use your own judgement on this. If it was mine look along the seam and find the small detent tabs that hold upper and lower halves together separate halves and clean board with alcohol. Check U TUBE under how to clean remote, good luck Bret

SOURCE: 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.

You need to isolate the problem.
1) Unplug the set for a few seconds then plug it in.
2) Operate the TV with the control/buttons on the TV. (Channels etc)
If the TV operates correctly then do the following.
3) Try operating with the remote unit. If the problem returns then it's the remote failing.
Sometime remotes can be reset.
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Try it again. If the problem is still there then the remote is bad.
Since this is a new TV you should use your warranty to replace any bad parts.

I have had the exact same problem with my 47LG70 after 13 months of use. I changed my remote control sensor but it did not help. Before you do that, try something simple which seems irrelevant. On this website, others have posted success by plugging in any standing set of headphones into the remote control or headphone jack on the rear TV panel. This solved my problem. So I proceeded to thoroughly dust all of the input/output component jacks on the rear and side of the TV with an air-can. This solved my problem and I do not need to have the headphones plugged in. So try these two things before changing the sensor.

It's a common problem with this model. You must change the IR board. This is very easy to do. Remove the back panel of the tv and unscrew/unplug the original board located where the power button, volume/channel, etc is and plug the new one. I bought my IR at Ebay, but sadly have to say that it was not working. Watch out these bargains, :-(
