Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV
The remote does not work?
Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera's Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera's screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.
Second: look at the back of the TV for a small jack 'IR REMOTE INPUT', if it has one, then use a small mini phone plug like the one used for MP3 player headphone. Insert that plug inot the IR REMOTE input in and out a couple times to clean the switch contacs inside and see if the remote function will work again.
