LG remote control

My LG remote control to my 42 inch plasma tv just stopped working. The function buttons illuminate, but the tv will not react to any button. I changed the batteries, and it worked for about five minutes and now it is doing the same thing. I changed the batteries again, and it still won't work. Help.

My remote for my 42 inch lg plasma tv won't work the tv. I replaced the battles and that didn't work. It lights up green when I hit the power button


Check the remote control for its infra-red emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check by pressing all the buttons on it; and see whether all of it generates infrared signal while pressing. If it is found OK, check and replace the infrared sensor inside the TV. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. It has details about how to check a remote control; by one among the post. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ If the remote control is found OK; check and replace the infra-red sensor inside the TV. Contact any service technician.

The picture on my lg tv has gone dark. Every button on the remote is working except the menu button.The button on the side for menu is not working either.


Check and repair the remote control. It sounds that it need cleaning. But lack of brightness to a Plasma screen might be to a faulty Z Sustain board. Check this for more details about the TV fualts, and to how to repair and clean a remote control.

Hello
If you are using its original remote control handset with this set, replacing batteries will poise no problem at all. If remote control does not works properly check the following.

Check to see if there is any object between the TV and the remote control
causing obstruction.
Are batteries installed with correct polarity (+ to +, - to -)?
Correct remote operating mode set: TV, VCR etc.?
The light at its side

Illuminates the remote control
buttons of selected mode.
OK.

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.

Try and reprogram all channels in the tv. Goto menu and use the auto program function to do this and see what happens. If this does not fix it then you will need to send to a repiar shop. The main pcb is most likly bad.
