Question about Televison & Video

We moved our dad to an assisted living home, and now we can't get his remote from his 42" flatscreen to work. The TV also isn't getting all the cable channels it should. Any suggestions?

    I did post the make and model number of the TV. As I said originally, the ORIGINAL REMOTE THAT CAME WITH THIS TV has NO make or model numbers on it. It is a 37 inch flat screen, by the way, not a 42. I can't imagine that would make much difference though.

  • shariblue Jun 23, 2008

    I have explained before that the remote does not have any numbers on it anywhere! It is the LG remote that came with the TV. It is a flatscreen, I have no idea why this post is under projection TVs. As I have previously posted , the 2 numbers found on the side of the TV are 42LB5DFVCAUSMLJM and 706MXDMIR626.

  • shariblue Jun 23, 2008

    Will someone please read my previous posts, I have typed in the numbers twice from the TV and I still have no answer, and people keep asking for the numbers!!!!!

  • shariblue Jun 23, 2008

    I don't need a site to buy a new remote. That is obvious, I can figure that out on my own. I was hoping someone there would have suggestions as to what to try with my existing original remote, that WAS working....we unplugged the TV, put it in the car, drove to the assisted living home, and plugged it in....and the remote no longer worked...this shouldn't be rocket science but I guess it is.

  • shariblue Jun 29, 2008

    I did find a tiny number embossed on the inside battery door of the LG original remote, I discovered through a website, it is the remote's serial number, HR-A412. With the TV numbers I already gave, and this new remote number, can anybody help me get the remote working now?

  • shariblue Jun 29, 2008

    The last "expert" advice referred to having satellite. This is hooked up to the cable system directly at the assistive living home...no box. Again, now that I have posted the serial numbers of the remote, as previously asked by another "expert", can somebody help me with the nonfunctioning remote?

Liquid had got between the playing surface and the control

If you're using a satellite, reset the receiver, and scan for channels. Check the manual (if any) that came with the receiver for detailed instructions.

Well all the cable channels sounds to me that the tv may not be set on catv. so it only gets the first 13 channels. as far as the remote, id test the tv with a universal and see if you just need to order a replacement. If you give me the make and model i can run you through this and find a remote most likely.

Thanks,

Nathan

    if it is a universal remote already it may just need to be reprogrammed.

  • Nathan Ayers
    Nathan Ayers Jun 18, 2008

    in the menu there should be a setting that has ANT or CATV make sure its on catv but you will most likely need the remote to do this.

    the tv is a LG brand?

    No your remote is done for. That is what we keep saying.

    Nathan Ayers Jun 29, 2008

    Your best bet is go buy a 1$ universal remote. Its not that hard not expensive. Just dont goto mcdonalds for a day ok. Then you wont have to sit here and spend more of your time for the inevitable. which is a replacement remote. You came to us cause we are professionals. Unfortunately there is no quick abra-ka-dabra and your remote is working. As you've stated you've tried the trouble shooting. Possible problems could be flourescent lighting, direct sunlight, remote control is broken. check off all three and end up with new remote as your solution and im glad we could be of service.


    Thanks,
    Nathan

Are you using the original remote control?

Posted on Jun 18, 2008

  • Jaime Hernandez Jun 18, 2008

    You can try to do a manual scan using the TV buttons as well.

  • Jaime Hernandez Jun 23, 2008

    It looks like the remote control is universal meaning it will work with other devices once program for them.

    Try pressing the TV button on the remote. During the move the other buttons might have been pressed.

Refer your problem to DIRECT TV to obtain a code

Toshiba won't function with remote


All universal remote controls should have to setup with the TV by its codes. There are codes, given below, to synchronize the TV with remote control. Brand name of the remote control you have isn't matter. Check these codes. Proceedings also is given. If you want further details, check this link, and select the site 'Electro-help'. pull up older posts there for more details.
Setup codes for Toshiba TV are:
0159 0178 0109 0120 0181 0105 0049 0095 0170 0260 0358 0394 0924 0012 0095 0117 0141

Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.

I have a soniq 42"


Ah, the old universal remote isn't so universal anymore is it? Most "universal" remote controls were designed for the old tube type television sets. There are some seriously nice universal remotes for new flat screen TV's, but most of them are pretty pricey. The only reasonable flat screen universal remote that I've found (that actually works) is the Vizio HDTV Universal Remote. It's about $25, and believe it or not ... Wal-Mart carries it in the store.

I have a a LG model 42LG30 UD. My issue is the IF doesn't appear to be working. I've 3 different remotes. the one the came with the tv. a remote from a LG dvd player and a comcast remote. the remotes work...


If your TV is still under warranty I would recommend sending it in. It sounds like the receiver on the TV is malfunctioning which isn't something that can generally be fixed or replaced by your local electronics store. Your best course of action would be to send the TV back to the manufacturer with a detailed list of what is happening. Most major retail outlets can assist you in getting your TV fixed or replaced through the manufacturer if you purchased the TV through them.

New Lg 42" plasma flatscreen


How new is it? Usually these TVs have a cool-down period, but a warm up of longer than 15 seconds is unusual. I would return it or try to get it fixed under warranty.

42 Inch Samsung Flatscreen; 1.5 years old. Won't


Hi,

First test the wall outlet, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet see if it works. If the outlet works then read the following below. If the wall outlet doesn't work then plug the TV into another outlet.

If its not the wall outlet:

Unfortunately the power supply has a problem sustaining DC output. This can be caused from several fault scenarios. Get someone who is technically savvy and I will show them via e-mail what to test to fix this problem for you. Or you can take it to your local repair center.
