Well, I see why the hotel let the TV go. You can try cleaning each button with a weak bleach solution (10 parts water to 1 part bleach - same solution used in many gyms, fitness areas to wipe off exercise equipment) with small, soft brushes to get between the buttons and the frame. Much of the time the buttons stick due to dust and dirt. Otherwise, it could cost a bit of money for a TV repairman to clean or replace each individual button on a large screen TV. Thank goodness you can get remotes over the internet, specifically designed for his make & model. Check out LG's homepage for more info.

As far as the fuzzy screen, try reprogramming the set up so that you can check each input, video setting starting with 480 (if using cable or satellite) all the way up, speaker configuation, etc... If you have the time, you can check into the calibration procedures for the TV make & model. It could cost more than $100.00 to have a professional come and do it. At least your friend would know that it is done & what he has, right?

Hello

Either there is no infrared emission from your remote control or the remote sensor inside your TV is faulty. Check the battery contacts of your remote control first for any rust or any other obstructions blocks power from the battery reach into it. Replace the cells with new one and check. You can check the function of your remote control with a cellphone camera which has camera option with it. Place the remote control at about one feet away from the cellphone camera, after the phone is set to camera mode, press each button on the remote control. You can see image of infrared signal on the screen of your camer. Human eye cannot detect infrared signal, but digital cameras can. If not you have to open your remote control, to see whethere there is any loose or bad soldering inside its circuit board. It can be opend by pressing its side **** with any sharp instrument like knife or so. There are locks in its cover, and must be released by pressing it as I pointed above. After opening it, look ofr any loose solderings inside it. There will be a few components and an IC there inside it. A crystal and an infrared light emitting LED will be there. Look ofr any loose solderings to this components terminals. If so resoldering it will solve the proble.
If this does not helps, and there is infrared signal comes out of your remote control, shen you have checked it with cellphone camera, infrared sonsor inside your TV scircuit boar is faulty. To replace it you have to open your TV. This sensor will be just behind the infrared reciveing window of your TVs front panel. It is a three terminal compnent, look black in colour and can be desoldered out very easly. Note its number, which will be marked on its bodey, laser printed, go for a new one, replacing it will solve the problem.
If you wants furthermore assistance from me, feel free to get me through Fixya. OK.

How do i get my panasonic th37pr9u out of hotel mode....i have tried a few things i found online but no remedy has worked.


Getting out of the hotel mode is very easy. Just go get the Panasonic remote and open your tv. Go near the tv and hold down the V/- button on the television itself. Then use the remote and press the AV button for 3 times. A hidden menu on the television screen will appear. Turn off the "Hotel Mode" from the menu and exit. Do not touch anything from the hidden menu except the hotel mode. Now you can use your tv in normal mode. The remote is required to access the hidden menu so be sure your remote is working and has working or full charged battery before doing the steps above

I am a maintenance guy at a hotel and have seen this problem quite a few times, this pic i sent is an app on my phone that i can control any tv with, check your app store for an LG remote app or if you are unsuccessful there are plenty of universal remote apps, does your tv have any buttons on it, i'd check screen adjustment, source, tools, menu, etc make sure the original remote didnt get wet or sticky, if nothing else works factory reset it, hope this helps

I am at a hotel right now and they have an LG tv and remote. My friends were playing there xbox360 on it but now they went to bed and now im trying to turn it to the tv but its not working and its stuck on...


You need to find a way to change the input back to TV. There may be an "INPUT" button on the TV itself, and/or a button on the remote. Use either to scroll through the options back to "TV".

I received an LG 32LX4DC Flat Panel Television from a hotel. It came with a control box LG LST-4100A. I saw on fixya.com the method to access the installer menu. However, I could not get the hidden menu...


Just an FYI if anyone is having this same problem a factory reset will solve the issue.Follow the above directions... "1. Press MENU repeatedly till it seems to not respond. 2. Enter 2-6-6-3 on the remote then Enter 3. At the top, it says ENTER PASSWORD 0000 4. Enter 9-8-7-6 then Enter 5. Installer Menu comes up scroll through the options until you see "factory reset" change the value from a 0 to a 1 with the arrow keys and then power the TV off. When you turn it back on it should be reset to factory defaults.

32lc5dc lg tv stuck in hotel mode


it is quite possible, if you bought this set from a hotel liquidation, it might still have it's lodgenet card. If it does, then it may be stuck on the channels the hotel had lined up. If there is a lodgenet card (where the cable jack is on the back) you can remove the 2 screws and just pull the card out an inch (leaving it attached to the black cable). Once that card is out, the tv should fall back to normal use. You might need to do a facotry reset to unlock TV options at that point. Only way around this would be to remove the 2 screws holding in the lodgenet card, and pulling it out of the back of the set (Don't have to pull it out all the way, just enough to disengage the data socket. Once the card is removed, you would need an actual LG remote (not the pay per view remote) and hit menu a bunch of times until it stops flashing menu on and off. Once it stops, you type in on the keypad, "98765" "ENTER". This will take you to an installer menu. Scrolling down to the highest numer there is (Should be one backwards from the "000" you start on" there is "Factory Reset" and you use the right arrow key and set it to "1" and then press enter. The TV will flicker a couple times, and then, all inputs are active.
