I have a 42" LG Plasma TV, model #42PC3DVA, not even a year old. We use a universal remote that comes with our digital cable package that we use instead of the original remote that came with the t.v. Anyways, my problem is that, out of the blue, all of a sudden we're not able to turn the tv on or off, or turn the volume up or down with BOTH remotes (plasma and cable). We're able to change the channels just fine, but as for volume and power control...zilch. We're thinking it has something to do with the laser in the t.v. Any suggestions on what to do?
I also had this same problem. Both the original remote and my universal remote failed to give any response on the TV. Normally the green light flashes when it receives a command from the remote. Called LG Support and they made me an appointment with a local repair company for 3 days later. This seemed pretty quick compared to other companies repair times I'd read about. However next day the repair company called to say it would be 5 more days before they could get a Tech to my location (downtown ATL). 8 days was a long time to wait but once tech arrived he diagnosed it to a bad board and simply went to his truck and swapped it out with mine under factory warranty. Everything has been fine since.
Sounds strange, sounds like an issue with the TV itself, and not the remote. You could try ordering a remote from a site like http://www.remotecontrolhookup.com/lg/ or you might be best suited to call LG and see if they can send out someone to look at the tv.

A universal remote will work with an older TV.
There may be some specific functions that are not available, but the basic functions will. If you have a cable box remote, you should be able to program it to turn the TV on and change the Volume,
Hello Buy a univesal remote control, which have setup codes for LG tV. You can get this information from the catelogue accompanied with the remote control. There will be proceedings also to setup the remot to tV. Or get its orginal remote control from the authorised service center for LG at your town.
This is a universal remote u bought wright?Check ur tv remote owner manual follow the instructions and program in ur tv universal remote codes for ur tv universal codes.If none of the tv universal codes of ur tv model will work,return it.Try website like Remotes.com to buy the tv original remote or very close compatible to the original one.
I hope that you have gotten this resolved, but if not, or if you have any other questions, here are the codes and some simple steps to run through.
1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights light up at the top of the remote 2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below) 3. Press the # (POUND) button 4. Try powering the tv on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code
I also have a hp plasma pl4260n ... we bought a harmony 550 remote and you program it on your computer!! It is the best thing ever controls everything...good news is they are on sale at best buy online probably in store also right now they are 49.99 normally this one is 99.99 so it is a great deal, i also picked one up for the inlaws christmas present!!
This should solve your problem and get you a great remote..it also has a 1 year manuf. warr. on it so if it fails to work during that time you can get it replaced in store at best buy!!!
Buy a universal remote & program it for your TV. That's what I had to do. They don't cost that much & they are just as good, if not better (more features) than the remote that came with your tv. Sorry but I went thru this & this was the best solution!
