This function is not available now

Last night all of the sudden I am getting this flashing message right in the middle of my screen. It will do it for a few minutes, quit for a minute and then continue.

    Same problem, hold down 'ENTER" button for ever and it goes away. Must call service tech to get it fixed.

    I have a 32lg2000 and this function is not available now keeps coming up - any fix-it???

    42LG70 Began turning itself on and then flashing "This function is not available now". LG tech support said no known issues on this model and advised turning it off for 5-10 minutes. Told them I had done that, but the issue returned within a day.

    Because the TV was purchased less than 30 days ago I'm bringing back to Best Buy - called and they will replace it. So out it goes...

    I was able to get into one of the menus when this was occurring and then the selector kept moving up - like the "up" command on the remote above enter.

    Regardless, I'm sending this one back, but will try another one of the same model.

    I have the same issue. Unplugging from AC for a minute and plugging back in at least clears the message.

I think i can help you with your problem.Disconnect all cable componets from the tv everything but the tv power cord once this is done unplug the tv for 60 seconds plug the tv back in. take the tvs original remote take the bateries out once there out point the remote at the tv hold the power botton down for 30 seconds while still pointing at tv then. put bateries back into the remote and the msg should be gone.

    The solution seems to work for awhile only to come back again. The comment about the PS3 gave me an idea that I'm working through. I use my PS3 HDMI cable with the adapter for my computer output. I'm trying a regular HDMI cable to see if it is any better. So far, so good.

If you press the button in the middle at the bottom of your phone the screen will show a list of apps running (or some shortcuts ,if so click the blue arrow at the top right of the screen to get to your apps page) .
Then you can press one at a time to goto and shut them one by one or press 'end all' at the bottom right to close them all.

It sounds like you overloaded the CPU which forced it to reboot. Try removing the battery unit from behind, leaving it for 5 minutes, then reinserting the battery unit and switching the phone on. Give it a minute to fully load, then try opening your contacts and messages. If there still seems to be problems, services is where you should go to and have it checked.

No Video or Audio on HDTV/No Vodeo on Standard TV

Don't worry , You did everything right . The problem is
the G.P.U. . It has de-solder it self from the main board.
The only reliable repair that will last is to have it
re-flowed back to the main board and properly
re-clamp that will fix 99.9% of most problem.
Permanently ,cost should be around 80.00

if you have any questions feel free to email me.

Zenith TV has a big black box in the middle of the screen.

After reading other postings, we figured out that it was the caption box, went to menu and turned it off.
Thanks for the great site, we wouldn't have figured it out without it !
