    Does the TV work?When you plug the TV in,you should have the red light lit on the front of it.When you press the power button the red light should go out,and the TV should turn on with either a picture if you are in the TV mode,and have the cable hooked up(snowy screen if you don't have the cable hooked up),or a blue screen if you are in the video mode.Thank You very much!

    How long did it work?Just when the person was showing it to you when you went to buy it?Do you have any sound?Does the screen light up when you first turn the TV on?If you press the input button when the TV is on,it should show on the screen what mode you are in.Thank You very much!

Try to turn it on with a remote if one is available. If you don't have the original remote you can look up the universal code for the cable or satellite remote. Also try to turn it on with the input source(vcr,video game, cable box,etc...) on first. I have the same TV and if it has no signal prior to manual power up it will go to standby mode.

What is the code for LG 37LE4500 TO WORK WITH SKY REMOTE CONTROL

I also have an LG TV. I used this 4 digit code: 0742.


1. Turn your TV on.

2. Press tv on your Sky remote control.

3. Hold down select and the red button together for about two seconds, until the red light on the Sky remote control blinks twice.

4. Press tv on your Sky remote control again.

5. Key in the four digit code for your brand of TV. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice. If the light blinks once only, recheck the code for your brand of TV and start again at Step 1.

6. Press the standby button on your Sky remote control. If your TV switches off, press select. The light on the Sky remote control blinks twice (code stored). If your TV does not switch off, press tv, then press the standby button. Repeat this (press tv, then standby) until your TV turns off, then press select (stores code).

How do i program tv aND DIRECT TV BOX FROM SCRATCH?

You need to turn on your television set.
  • On your DirecTV remote, press the "TV" button once.
  • Now, press and hold the "Setup" button until the "TV" light goes off.
  • Enter "991" on your remote control, using the numeric keypad. The "TV" light on the remote should blink twice.
  • Aim your remote at the television and slowly alternate between pressing "TV and "Power" on your remote, until the television set turns off. Once it turns off, press "Setup" on your remote control to lock in the code.
  • To search for codes for other devices and program them into your remote, repeat Steps 1 to 5, but use the appropriate key for your device instead of "TV."

    There are two code types for sky remotes, Brand Codes & Direct Codes.

    The codes for Alba are:

    Brand - 0043

    Direct - 037, 065, 246, 399, 263, 064, 446

    There is a small difference in the way they are set.

    To program using the 3 digit code - Direct Code
    1) Switch on the TV set
    2) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote
    3) Hold down the select and red buttons for 2-3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
    4) Enter the 3 digit code
    5) Press the select button to store
    Press TV and any number to test, If this does not operate the TV set try below.

    To program using the 4 digit code - Brand Code
    1) Switch on the TV set
    2) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote
    3) Hold down the select and red buttons for 2-3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
    4) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote again
    5) Enter the 4 digit code for your make of TV
    6) The LED should blink twice, if not recheck the 4 digit code used and go back to 1
    7) Press the standby button on the Sky Remote (The TV should go to standby)
    8) Press select to store this setting
    If the TV does not go into standby press the TV button then the standby button, then TV then standby, keep repeating this until successful. This will scan the codes used for a particular make of TV.
