    I have the same problem, except I have done the steps listed above, and It will still not change from channel 2. It says it's on 4, or 10, etc, but it shows channel 2. Is the tuner bad?

Your set uses the 195 series chassis and you have something set wrong in your guide plus. Go into the TV's menu and do a complete set-up. Take the remote and press MENU, then "8" to enter setup, then press "1" for "begin setup now" and then press "1" for English, and so on. You must enter "set up guide plus+", then press OK on the remote to choose "setup", select "USA", enter your zip code, and then if you choose "yes" for "do you have cable?" you MUST then choose "no" for "do you have a cable box" If you choose "yes" for that choice, your tuner will lock on one channel no matter what channel you try entering. After choosing "no" for "do you have a cable box", choose "no" for "do you have a VCR?", exit the guide plus menu and then skip the rest of the steps by pressing "2", and then exit the main menu by pressing "0". Your channels will then work normally.

On tv 2 the remote controls the volume and power but will not change channels or do anything else. went to system info in tv 1, pressed sat and power. This did not help. Batteries are new.


Hey, Jane!

I can definitely help you with this. Go to the System Info screen like before, but on the TV2 remote press the 'Record button and see if the number in 'Secondary Remote Address' changes. If it doesn't, let me know here, and I will assist you in programming it!

LCD 42 LG TV won't change channels with channel button only with numbers


First check with fresh batteries. that does not resolve it If a universal remote- try a different code. If original remote, press the "TV" button first to make sure it is using the right parameters. If still not resolved, the issue may reside in the IR circuit of the set.

What's your problem?Won't stop changing channels


Hello,

there is every possibility that the channel (ch - and ch +) button on the TV is stuck. This can make the TV channels change by itself. This also applies to the remote control (if any).

Turn off the TV, use your thumb to flip through the channel (ch - and ch +) button on the TV. This will free the stuck button. Also, check the channel (ch - and ch +) buttons on the remove and make sure it is also not stuck in.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, then it means fault is from the control board inside the TV. It maybe defective or needs servicing.

The board controls the buttons on the TV and it can be found on the position of the channel (ch - and ch +) inside the TV.

Note that TV stores a lot of current. So if you want to disassemble the TV to check the board allow the current to discharge by remove the TV plug from the wall and wait for about 1 hour before attempting to disassemble the TV.

Let me know if you need more assistance...

Regards.

My remote doesn't work, it won't change the channels


It sounds like the remote would need to be address to the receiver. This needs to be done from the main TV location, and I have listed the steps below!

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
2.) Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
3.) Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Test remote and see if works.

Hope that helps!

My TV will not change channels it seems stuck on channel 2 This is true with the remote and with the buttons on the set.


Try to change the channel by manually putting the numbers in with your remote. If this works then you probably need to program your channels.

Remote only advances by one channel.


The button on the remote next to 0 and below 9 has to be depressed to _ _ before you select any 2 digit channels. I had the same problem and accidently figured it out. Hope it helps. TC

TV changes channel changed before all numbers entered in remote


Possibly you're not hitting the numbers fast enough or there is a problem in the delay circuit in the microprocessor. Stargazer
