Question about LG 32LX4DC 32 in. LCD Television

6 Answers

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 described. Here is the steps I input: 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 I scrolled through the options, but there is nothing about DBOX or disabling the control box. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.

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.

I followed your instructions and got to the part where "Password 0000" is displayed on the screen. However at that point When I pushed the number is 9876 nothing would happen. For some reason the remote will not allow me to push in any numbers at all. And I know my batteries are good because I can turn off, turn on change inputs, work the menu button etc. any tips on how to make that part work? Thanks in advance

The remote controls wouldn't work without the control box connected, but the factory reset wouldn't work with the box connected.


Here is what worked for me:


1. On the LST-4100A box, there is a black, removable card with an F-connector (Cable In) and a RJ-11 (Data). Unscrew the two retaining screws and remove this card. There is an antenna-type connector on the inside that will need to be disconnected from the card.

2. Connnect the control box to the TV via the serial cable (Display Control).

3. Plug in power cables to TV and control box. Turn on TV.

4. There are two lights on the control box. Make sure the "Power" light is on solid and the "Status" light is flashing quickly. If not, cycle power on both the TV and the control box.

5. Press "Menu" and hold the button until the menu disappears.

6. Quickly, press "2 6 6 3" then press "Enter". A small menu should open in the upper left.

7. Scroll down to "DBox". Change to "Off". TV will restart.

8. Disconnect the serial cable from the TV. The remote controls should now work normally with the control box disconnected.

If there is a lg lst-4100a conrol box attached to my hotel tv if i take it off will the tv work without it. Meaning will it power on at all?


You have to select a proper input, other than 'cable box'. There should be no other problem. it should work as normal TV. But, if you wish to select an other input, you should first release the Hotel mode, and set the TV to normal mode. If you have to make this selection, you might have to enter its service mode. This procedure might need some practical experience. So, contact any experienced service technician in this case.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.
NB: Please read and understand well, the instructions to enter the service mode, before you begin. Be very careful. Note how to "EXIT" the service mode; after entering and adjusting data. This is very important.

If i use a universal remote can i unprogram a lg lst-4100a contol box from a lg 32lx3dc tv


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.

LG 36in. TV. Model LST-4100A won 't come on at


There may be a power supply problem

Lst-4100a


You may be able to overcome this problem by bringing up the menu by using the TV's own buttons. Most TV's can be tuned and accessed through this method. Also have you taken the batteries out of your remote control, press all of the buttons on it, this can at times discharge any capacitors that hold a charge (electricity), which, unless fully discharged keeps the unit as it was last used. Once you have done this, replace the batteries and try using the unit as normal. Good Luck. George

I purchased a LG 32lx4dc tv from a hotel liquidator but i can't it to work at home? I don't have the remote. Can I access the menu using a universal remote? Will I ever get it to work at home?


Here is what worked for me:

1. On the LST-4100A box, there is a black, removable card with an F-connector (Cable In) and a RJ-11 (Data). Unscrew the two retaining screws and remove this card. There is an antenna-type connector on the inside that will need to be disconnected from the card.

2. Connnect the control box to the TV via the serial cable (Display Control).

3. Plug in power cables to TV and control box. Turn on TV.

4. There are two lights on the control box. Make sure the "Power" light is on solid and the "Status" light is flashing quickly. If not, cycle power on both the TV and the control box.

5. Press "Menu" and hold the button until the menu disappears.

6. Quickly, press "2 6 6 3" then press "Enter". A small menu should open in the upper left.

7. Scroll down to "DBox". Change to "Off". TV will restart.

8. Disconnect the serial cable from the TV. The remote controls should now work normally with the control box disconnected.

LG 32lx4dc will not operate by controls or remote. comes on and stays on one channel.


You could try going into the set-up menu & scrolling to the factory reset option, if this does not cure the problem then call your LG dealer for a service call so that the software version can be updated & a service reset should solve the problem

How to remove LG LST-4100A


To remove the LST-4100A commercial control interface from the television you need to follow the commands below.

1. Power on television.
2. Press and hold "MENU" for 10-15 seconds.
3. Quickly press "2-6-6-3" and then press "ENTER"

If you have done everything properly, it will bring up a small menu in the top left hand corner of the television. Kind of a hidden menu.

4. Arrow down to the menu option that says "D Box" and turn the option to "OFF".

Now turn off television and completely disconnect the LST-4100A. In fact, throw it away. In the trash is where it belongs.

Your television will now operate like a normal television purchased from a big box store. You should run an automatic programming setup for grins upon completing.

Enjoy your new NON-commercial lcd television.
