Question about Televison & Video

7 Answers

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?

1;resolder battery contacts on PCB and physically
reinforce.
2;IR LED solder joints,sometimes IR LED failure (solder any old
red LED in parallel to check).
3;Broken tracks from being sat on/knelt on
4;failed ceramic resonator,check
by replacing with any old resonator before
aquiring the correct frequency.
5;Gradual failure of the most used buttons-worn
conductive pads-see hints and tips files.
6;Sudden loss of some functions due to break in track in
the keyboard multiplexing.
7;Very rarely is the fault in the main IC.
8;The most common problem is spilt liquid corroding the contacts,
through-board jumpers or pcb tracks.
Saitech 165H (Kasparov) Chess computer
Failure to acknowledge presence of pieces on 2
of the rows.
Liquid had got between the playing surface and the control
pad area where the silver printed signal lines pass through
and corroded the tracks.Hard wire with fine copper
wire between the line area (use silver loaded paint to contact)
and the main pcb.Place tape over the gap to avoid any future
trouble cleaning with an over damp cloth etc.
Hope that helps........

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.

    where did you post the make and model of the tv. I didnt see it, can you please repost it for me.

    the tv is a LG brand?

  • Nathan Ayers
    Nathan Ayers Jun 29, 2008

    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.

LG rt-z52sz60db lamp and overheat fault light


I admit not having seen this model but if a DLP with lamp it has fans.

A common issue with sets is while house/home may be spotless the fans also intake air and ANY dust in the air.

I have seen many where the airflow inside the set gets blocked with dust on the fans and paths themselves----many when taken outside and blown clean with compressed air look like a dust storm and suddenly the set now works.

Even a moderate amount on fan blades will cause the fans to run a little slow which will trigger the overheat isssue especially on the Lamp fan which cools that part.

I know people who live in spotless homes do not like to hear this but it is rather common.

A reset if it exists for this set will NOT help this kind of issue---I see you have posted this issue in several places on the internet so consider that not all issues can be corrected with a reset and it is possible I am correct here----no major parts are required to prove or disprove this---in fact nothing to lose by trying it---as proof I offer a link to another set with a somewhat similar problem whose answer has helped several other people---I keep track:

My mitsubishi wt42311 looks out of focus...tried everything from remote...what is next?


is it out of focus or does the picture look 3-D? if it does than
The best advice I can tell you at this point is to go to tvrepairkits.com and order the complete convergence kit for your model of TV set, no need to search and order multiple parts from different sources and pay multiple shipping fees! Go to http://www.tvrepairkits.com/xcart/home.php?partner=larry
The kit comes with original Sanyo STK IC'S , not those cheap aftermarket or china made IC'S full pictorial directions, the thermal paste, resistors, the correct Pico fuses, AND free live on-Line tech assistance in case you run into a problem with the repair. They ship out 2 to 3 day Priority mail, the next day in most cases GOOD LUCK!!!
