Then it is likely that the infra red receiver in the TV set is faulty - or possibly the 5 volt supply to the receiver.

The signals from the infra red receiver usually enter the system control integrated circuit. So if other control functions are working ok this is likely to be good.

It is possible that other equipment can block the remote signal - if another remote controller is stuck on [jammed down a crack in the sofa] or if you use energy saving lamps in the same room - they can produce high levels of infra red noise.

Please take time to rate my assistance - I hope it is useful.

The TV stopped responding to the remote control


tried with reset doesn't work, ok it could be the IR sensor at the front panel of the tv doesn't work. but before you replace it you need to ensure if your remote controller is working. have you tried to check the remote with camera trick just to know if the remote controller is sending light to the IR sensor of the tv.

Universal remotes have 3, 4, and 5 digit codes depending on the age of the devices to be controlled. 3 digit codes can only control devices made before year 2000. 4 digit codes can do upto 2007, 6 digit codes can do upto the date of the remote manufacture date. Your universal remote is too old for your TV.

LG 42" Plasma TV - remote control problem


Well the first thing you need to figure out is if the problem is in the remote or the TV, right?

So what I'd do is get a universal remote - they're like $5 at Target - and try to command the TV with it.

That's one quick, easy and affordable way to know where the problem is. And it gets you to have a spare universal remote, just in case.

Once you know more, you explore the options.

TV does not respond to remote commands,


I'm sure you've tried this, remote batteries is most common cause.
Make sure sensors on TV and remote are unobstructed(remote only works if line of sight to sensor is clear) and clean. Windex and Qtip. Damaged/dirty/defective remote, try different if possible (universal). If none of above works(99% chance), extreme longshot is TV circuitry.

LG LCD TV won't respond to remote controllers


sparrow00, your fix worked for me, and I think I know why. The 1/8" remote input jack on the back of the TV has electrical contacts inside that are probably there to sense the presence of a plug-in remote. When they detect the insertion of this plug they disable the front panel IR (infrared) receiver and the TV only responds to this plugged-in remote and the buttons on the TV itself. After some period of time these contacts get corroded and the circuit is no longer completed between them. The TV now thinks an external remote is plugged in, and it ignores its own front panel IR receiver.

When you plug a 1/8" plug into this remote socket on the back of the TV it wipes away the corrosion. When you remove the plug the internal contacts conduct properly again and the TV responds to its front panel IR receiver. For best results you should plug a 1/8" headphone plug into this remote jack and twist it a few times, then pull it out and repeat several times. Repeat every frew months or whenever the TV acts up.
Thanks for your solution!
