To fix the problem, try turning off the TV and unplugging it from the outlet. Once unplugged, push the power button and hold it down for 1 minute. Then turn the TV back on and rescan for channels.

If the problem persists, contact LG customer service immediately as there is a problem with the memory card. The device is unable to retain scanned channels for immediate feedback.

All LG LCD automatically comes with a 1 year manufacturing warranty. You would have to provide proof of purchase to show when it was purchased. Hope this helps. The Guru

Only boards are sold and no parts- a 32 inch may not have even the boards or be cost effective to repair----suspect main board here.

My LG TV stopped responding to the remote. A very helpful repair technician told me to stick a head phone jack in the sensor jack on the back of the TV a few times to clean out the contacts. Now the remote control works fine.

When you buy a samsung, you buy a LED TV with a panel manufactured
by the company "S - LCD" which belongs to 50/50 % sony and samsung.
The S - LCD company is fully driven under samsung engineering.
Today, sony seems to buy their panels from "sharp corp" and trying to
seperate from samsung due to the cold war (high competition ) between

Just go for the samsung UN32C6500 32" 1080p LED HDTV.

Theres no better picture quality you can buy for 32".

Good luck....

Believe it or not...THIS WORKS!!!! 

 Look on the back of your set for an external remote jack. It should be the same size as a small headphone jack. If it has one, use a spare headphone plug or your headphones, and plug them in and out about 50 times. This will clean the tarnished contacts and make your remote sensor start working. Your remote sensor goes through a switch on this jack.

You need to reach the Option menu, and to set the language. You will have to do this working on the Korean menu. I hope that the pictures below may help:


Press MENU button on remote, and go to OPTION menu, which is the one with a tag picture, right on top of the padlock pic.

Use the arrow buttons to select language. use arrow right to confirm and up and down to select.

Below a manual for this model:

Found that TV started switching off by itself. Would try to come on..green light blinked for 2-3 seconds, tv came on (with picture and sound) for 1 or 2 seconds and then it would turn itself off. Found that the issue is with one channel only. If you are facing this issue....try quickly changing the channel the moment it comes on. You can do it either with remote or with the TV buttons directly. also in the same logic, if this is still happening, try changing the source to another (rgb-pc, av1, av2 etc). Basically change it from whatever input it is on currently, if changing the channels does not work. My symptom was that the tv made a loud 'TIK' 'TAK' sound which is louder than normal.

Could be an open internal fuse or power supply failure

Do a first time installation, move the TV or bite the bullet and either buy an external aerial or extend the main house aerial cable to reach the TV. assuming your TV has no signal where it is now

I belive the repair shop might be try to get more money from you
if you enscrew the back of the tv ( with the tv unplugged ) look for a flat wirestrip thats not connected
I think they either forgot to plug in that video wire or they did it to make money from you

did it work fine before the dim screen or did it come back to you like that?
