Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV
LG 42LC2D 42 IN. HDTV LCD TV SENSOR IS NOT WORKING.
Believe it or not...THIS WORKS!!!!
Look on the back of your set for an external remote jack. It should be the same size as a small headphone jack. If it has one, use a spare headphone plug or your headphones, and plug them in and out about 50 times. This will clean the tarnished contacts and make your remote sensor start working. Your remote sensor goes through a switch on this jack.

To fix this problem, like a previous user suggested, take a pair of headphones and turn the TV off manually, and then plug your headphones in and out of the remote jack 50 times. Your remote should now work. This sounds crazy, but works. I had my LG LCD 37 TV for 3 years and out of no where the remote stopped working, the remote itself still worked but the TV stopped accepting the signal. I tried everything to fix it and this was the only thing that worked. Thank you so much me6666666666 for the advise.

LG 42 PC3DV I had the Time Warner Cable Techician come out and could not figure what was wrong with the LG TV. I saw this online stuck a 3.5 earphone device into the remote in a few times and now all the remotes work!

First check to see if the TV is working properly by using the buttons on the TV.
Then if you can check the remote by trying it on a compatible set. Maybe try it at the store you bought the set. If it works then you have a bad infared unit on the TV. Infrared units can be replaced.
