Onscreen TV Guide

The Onscreen TV Guide feature no longer works. When I attempt to access it, all that appears is the channel preview window...the rest of the screen is black. Also, I cannot access the TV Guide settings. Everything else functions normally.

    I have not yet found a solution. LG just tells me to take it to a repair shop, they are useless when it comes to customer support.

    Same problem- no onscreen tv guide that seemed to gradually disappear- 1st the display came up with no available information, then disappeared entirely. Coincided with digital tv upgrades by local cable co.- LG no help, cable co. either. Around same time as others posting here, odd! Get small screen"picture-in-picture" to left hand upper corner of screen when try to access menu. TV no longer under warranty. [email protected]

    I have the same problem. The initial problem occured when the TV Guide set-up screen appeared asking me which cable operator I used (this is after over two years of it working fine!). I selected the cable company and the screen went black except for the small video in the upper right. My TV comes on to this screen every time I click it on. I have to push the "Exit" button to get back to a normal tv screen. Also, my TV has no idea I have a cable box hooked to it any longer, yet I can use the cable by selecting the correct TV input.

    I would like to do a hard reset to return to the original factory settings, but can not find info on how to accomplish that!

    Same problem. I would be happy if there were some way to disable the TV Guide feature.

    Everything that is being descibed here is what I am dealing with. Comcast says it's LG's problem and LG blames the cable card.

    TV guide with LG says NO LISTING - will not update? How do we remedy this situation.

  • riblet14 Jul 25, 2008

    I have the same problem. LG said I need to schedule a repair.

TVGUIDE caused this problem when they began doing their conversion to digital. I can help you with this. You need the "EPK" file to upgrade the VCHIP. If you email me I can forward you the file and you will have acess to your TV GUIDE functions again it will take a few minutes. You will need an SD memory card to put the file on and put it in your TV..

The same problem occurred on my TV about the same time. I would be interested to know if you ever found a solution.

Tv wont tne in to ch9 why iam getting all the other channels

If you are using an antenna to receive broadcast TV you may have to rescan to add channel 9 back into the TV's channel list. If this does not work, it may be seasonal or a weak signal from your channel 9 broadcaster. I use a signal booster on my antenna (purchased at Radio Shack..)

How do i scan a photo

Hello Sue !

To use the scan features, your HP All-in-One and computer must be connected and
turned on. The HP All-in-One software must also be installed and running on your
computer prior to scanning. To verify that the HP All-in-One software is running on a
Windows computer, look for the HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the system tray at the
lower right side of the screen, near the time. On a Mac, the HP All-in-One software is
always running.

Scan to an application
You can scan originals placed on the glass directly from the control panel.
1. Load the original face down on the right front corner of the glass.
2. Press Start Scan on the control panel.
A preview image of the scan appears in the HP Document Viewer window on
the computer, where you can edit it.
For more information on editing a preview image, see the onscreen HP Image
Zone Help
that came with your software.
3. Make any edits to the preview image in the HP Scan window. When you have
finished, click Accept.
The HP All-in-One sends the scan to the HP Image

My Pioneer PDP-4280HD Plasma - Have never been able to get the TV Guide feature to work. Only some of the set up screens are shown in the manual. Can someone help? I see the feed of channels, which is...

My research into your set and its TV Guide feature brought up two points that may be relevant:

  1. It apparently takes about 24 hours for the guide to load up completely. This would make it difficult to get real-time info as to whether it was working or not.
  2. 'TV Guide' may not work will all providers, and may not work as providers switch to digital. Have you spoken to your provider about possible compatibility?

I hope that helps

How does the scanner work?

Simply pull the lid on the top and place the paper on it . Then close the lid and press scan button on the scanner, which will start scanning your documents.

Cant get any channels between 34-98

If your remote does not have a menue to access auto channel programing, look for it on the TV itself. It may be hiding behind a small panel door, usually toward the bottom of the tv.Once you find it you may have to figure out how to bring the screen up that has programing feature. The screens usually can be brought up by channel or volume controls. Once the auto programing feature appears you push or press ok. If that does not work you should be able to manually key in each channel, one at a time. There as many variations as tvs. Hope this helps. Good luck. Larry

(Built in) TV GUIDE Screen is black except for small channel preview window on top-left.

After purchasing a "service remote" and then buying a new "Main Board-Analog" which didn't fix the problem, I spoke with tech support who then emailed me an "EPK" file. Basically the computer board inside the television needed to be updated since this whole digital conversion is happening.. However this incident has given me tremendous knowledge of what to do and how to troubleshoot and how to reset my own TV with all the hidden menus that you never knew you had. Don't be tricked into buying a mainboard or even paying a diagnostic fee. If your TV GUIDE screen goes blank and all you see is a small channel preview screen in the top left corner, chances are all you need is the EPK file update. I received the update file in my email, I downloaded it to an SD card, inserted the SD card into my 32LX1D LG LCD TV and it did the rest. It was too easy. Most newer LG TV's are coming with a "SERVICE USB" so you can attach a "jumpdrive" or some other storage to it. These so called "Authorized Service Centers" are a hoax. WHen you bring your TV into them they charge you a "diagnostic fee" ranging from $50-$150 just to diagnose it, then they tell you that that can also be applied to the cost of the repair. All the service center does is call a special priviledged tech support 800# for LG to find out what to do. I've replaced and removed my own Main board. You gotta learn the game people, its all a big game to keep the revenue coming long after the sale of the TV. Which is why nowadays automobiles are manufactured with parts that were made to break intentionally to keep bringing you back.

Tv guide on our LG tv

If, when selecting the guide, the entire screen is black (except for the preview in the corner), then the digital main board has gone bad and will need replaced.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Cant use all cable channels

Go to SET UP TV, press yes for the following question. SET UP GUIDE PLUS. This will take you to another GUIDE PLUS SET UP SCREEN. Answer the questions as they appear. The important question is going to be. DO YOU HAVE CABLE? Answer yes to this questions. Answer the rest of the questions as they appear. Then go back to MAIN MENU, select channel, then select auto channel search. This will find all channels that are offered by your cable package.
