Question about LG 42PC3D 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

I have a 42pc3d LG plasma and the remote controls will not operate the TV. I have the original remote and a universal remote which use to control the TV and the dvr but now neither remote works on the TV. The universal one still works on the dvr. I did change out the batteries in both remotes and cleaned the sensor on the tv with no luck. Any other suggestions?

if your TV warranty is not out of date then claim a new one..however it takes many days to process
so I recommend you to troubleshoot your universal remote controller
i assume that you are using RCA universal controller
1. Press and hold CODE SEARCH until the INDICATOR LIGHT lights, then release CODE
2. Press and release the device button for the device’s code you are retrieving (TV,VCR or
DBS•CABLE). The INDICATOR LIGHT will blink once then remain lit.
Note: For AUX, press DVD•AUX then the device button for the code you are retrieving.
3. Press and release CODE SEARCH. The INDICATOR LIGHT will turn off.
4. Starting with 0 on the keypad, press the number buttons in order (0-9) until the
5. The number which causes the INDICATOR LIGHT to blink is the first digit of your code.
6. Repeat step 4 until you have retrieved all three numbers in code..

RCA: 004, 005, 006, 012, 019 ,056, 057, 058, 155, 156, 171, 172
if it fails buy and try ge universal remote

it is a good to note down down your code

Remote On/Off not working - Sensor Broken

Hey, maybe you should try reprogramming your universal and see if that works. Might want to try testing all the codes that work for LG and see if they'd work. If that doesn't work, find a site like <a href=""></a> and see if you can find your original and buy it and try it out. If that still doesn't work, send it back and you may need to find a local tv repair shop to look at your tv rf sensor.

I have a 46" LG

The TV requires restoration due to jammed setting either because the remote control was damaged or power function buttons have been pressed too frequenly.

The following processes are recommended

1. Consider replacing the remote control possibly acquiring another on the market; for example, a universal remote could be acquired to replace the original provided with system upon purchase.

2. With the new remote acquired, perform a system restoration or reconfiguration; discribable

a. The universal remote acquired on retail would have a menu button where functions could be manipulated
b. The menu button once pressed should display options on which to select system reconfiguration

c. A system reconfiguration would reset the entire TV settings to a manufacturers default expected to fix any user alterations that might have resulted into a malfunction.

Once the entireprocess is complete, th TV should not operate undesiringly.

Caution Notes
1. Do not sit on remote control or press several button at the same time; could cause device to alter configuration.
2.Do not situate TV at areas that could directly place pressure on power button areas switches
3.Do not attempt to reconfgure the TV original setting without first refering to the user guide or contacting professional technical experts.
4. Finally contact technical experts whenever necessisary.
