    these are the few possiable reason for the remote not working...



    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.

I received an LG 32LX4DC Flat Panel Television from a hotel. It came with a control box LG LST-4100A. I saw on fixya.com the method to access the installer menu. However, I could not get the hidden menu...


Just an FYI if anyone is having this same problem a factory reset will solve the issue.Follow the above directions... "1. Press MENU repeatedly till it seems to not respond. 2. Enter 2-6-6-3 on the remote then Enter 3. At the top, it says ENTER PASSWORD 0000 4. Enter 9-8-7-6 then Enter 5. Installer Menu comes up scroll through the options until you see "factory reset" change the value from a 0 to a 1 with the arrow keys and then power the TV off. When you turn it back on it should be reset to factory defaults.

The store demo mode is stuck on my insignia tv. the user guide says go to menu and then setup and select plug & play. however the plug and play option is grey and it wont let me select it.


Are you using an HDMI cable? Go to input and select TV. Then you should be able to access the Plug & Play option and be able to turn off the Demo Mode.

Menu Scrolls Uncontrollably


The most common cause of the problem is a stuck/shorted button either on the television or on the remote. The worst case scenario is a faulty key control board. Remove the remote control battery or put it away from the television. Press the menu button on the television and check if the menu scrolls by itself. If yes, the DOWN button is stuck or shorted. You can actually hear or feel it click when pressed if it is not stuck.

Open the back of the television to gain access to the key control board. You can either repair/replace the faulty button or replace the key control board. Remove the screw holding it to the television casing. Disconnect the old board and install the new one.

Replace the remote control if the buttons on the television control are working properly.

Try unplugging the set for 2 minutes first then try operations again. If that doesn't fix it maybe one of the buttons on the TV is stuck or the remote control is sending erratic commands.
