Re: model LD 200 EMB
This may sound stupid and not help anything but I would change the batteries in the remote first; that's the simplest possibility.
What the set is doing is selecting a function, the first is 'Auto tune' during which the set is looking for usable channels on the 'off air' (antenna) input. I suspect you have cable or satellite meaning that there will not be any signal at the antenna input and the set just looks at each standard channel frequency and then gives up.
The language thing; this is curious but also a sign that it has switched to the menu mode where you also need to be if you want to do a channel search on purpose.
If the remote is not at fault, then it is an internal problem you will not be able to repair on your own.
The circuitry that interprets the received infrared signal from your remote has started producing noise or the output from that after a decoder, has gone noisy and is just choosing functions on its own.
The blue screen is what most sets use as a default when no signal is found at any input.
Unfortunately. Emerson, RCA, Zenith and a few others are US names we once trusted but now have been acquired by Asian manufacturers who are building junk with labor pulled from the fields to assemble high tech gear.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

According to the manual for the Magnavox 14MS2331/17B, you switch to the A/V input by pressing Ch+ or Ch- on either the TV or the remote until you see AV as the current option. (Thus you have to scroll down from Channel 2 or up from Channel 69 for an OTA signal. For cable TV, the AV will be reached by Ch - from channel 1 or Ch + from channel 125.) See page 3 (7 of the PDF) here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/14ms2331_17b/14ms2331_17b_dfu_aen.pdf .
Since it is possible to skip channels by editing the channel list, you may need to check if the AV option has been skipped. To do this, press Menu. Use the up/down buttons to navigate to Install and press the right button to enter this menu. Highlight the Channel Edit line and press the right button to check this. Once in this sub-menu, use the left/right buttons to scroll through the Channel number options (or use Ch+/Ch- to see the stored list). You can also type in a channel number on the remote. Press the down arrow to change to the line that reads Skipped. Use the left/right arrows to change between Yes or No. (No indicates you can reach the channel with the Ch+/Ch- buttons.) Use the Up arrow to return to the channel number line to scroll to other channels. Press Status/Exit to leave the menu system. See page 10 (14 of the PDF) for details.
Hi Jim, your nearly there, all you need to do is go into the tv menu and move from DTV to the old type channel numbers and then find the bit where you can manually tune the tv to channel 68.
Have a sky menu picture running and you will see it come in.
You're asking about its service mode code I assumes, and posts this solution. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for
more details. Check this link and
select the site named above. View it
in 'Flip card' option, which can
be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left
corner of the display window. It will
make search easy. Some times, the ads
attached with each posts, both at the right and bottom, might help you to find
the availability of spare parts. There
are more than 750 posts to different brand TVs now
I had the same problem which also included the picture having streaks of red in it sometimes too. I found that both problems were due to the TV getting too hot inside. I bought a $7 small 4" fan from Walmart and pointed it at the back "door" of the TV (where the bulb can be replaced). Both problems have disappeared which I think is due to not letting the interior get too hot.
Not sure if there is an internal fan to cool the parts inside, but if there is it is not working well enough.
PROGRESIVE SCAN will only work with an HD TV and it does not work via the scart lead. Select off for it if you have an old TV. If you can't get it to stop coming on by doing what it says to do, then you have an electrical fault on the LG.
PROGRESIVE SCAN itself is a method of getting high quality images on HD TV's via the special sockets at the back of the DVD.
use vid 1 or vid 2 input on remote should do that if not then use a differ code in your universl for your tv that makes it work or type 00 should get u there another way go to channel 1 and then down arrow it will go into it if not go into your add channel menu and add them then down arrow
Have you checked to see if any of the front panel buttons are depressed and stuck??? this is a big problem these days?? I have also found the infared remote sensor to be bad on some sets that do crazy things all by them selfs.. A funny storry once i had was a customer called me after her mother called some goast finders as her maggy projection set would go on all by itself andf the channels would change and the volume would go up and down all by its self. funny thing I had a set just like thast in the shop at the time with the same problem and I scoped out the output pulse from the infared reciver on the set and that was putting out noise on the data line and caused the set to eratacly do all sorts of weird stuff. get the point?? its a stck button or the remote sensor is bad.
