Question about LG 32LG30 32 in. LCD HDTV
I have reprogrammed the Directv remote with a series of codes and it doesn't want to power on/off the tv or change the input or volume. The LG remote also doesn't power on/off tv or change volume. All the mode lights flash but nothing happens. I've tried the settings menu and the "mute" "select" combo but nothing works.

Let's start simple first. Your TV is not responding to either remote control, but specifically if your factory original LG remote does not operate the LG TV, then the problem could be with the IR receiver in the TV itself.
Ensure nothing is blocking the IR receiver on the TV. Move anything out of the way.
Test both remotes to ensure that they are sending an infrared IR signal to the TV. Use a digital camera (such as the one on your phone) and point the remote into the camera lense and press the power/volume/channel buttons. You should see a faint flashing light in your camera viewfinder. This indicates that the remote is sending IR signal. If you don't see anything, then there is no signal. Try FRESH batteries.
If your remotes are working, and since this is an LG, look at the back of the TV by the video inputs. Look for a port called "REMOTE CONTROL IN" or similar. It looks like a 3.5mm headphone jack. This port is used for external remote control and may be dirty.
UNPLUG the TV, then use a regular 3.5mm male headphone jack to plug in and out several times. You basically want to push all the way in and all the way out several times to dislodge any dust and remove any oxidation that has built up in the port. 10-15 times should do fine.
Then plug in the TV and try your remote.
Best of luck.

The fault may be on the control board. Sometimes the button switches can be stuck, or there may be something causing some conduction on the control circuit board. It is also possible to have a component failure that is causing a continuous command to keep the volume to the high position.
Something that causes failures of controls in TV sets is when people clean the screen, they spray liquid cleaner on the screen. Some of it drips down in to the controls and on to the circuit board. This will usually cause damage, and thus the set will require shop service.

SOURCE: LG LCD TV volume/sensor problems
it could be 2 issues: faulty remotes or stuck buttons on tv's keyboard. Where did you get 2 remotes? cable or directtv boxes? those are universal and must be programed to work with tvs. or, do you have 2 identical LG remotes in your household? either way, if you have kids on premises and lot of drinks carried around, remotes could be contaminated with fluids inside and malfunctioned. You must become a CSI and figure it out!
Good luck and let me know the results.

Have an LG26Lx1D for about 3 years, dropped off by my son.(Figures).Power light just blinking, but went back to red.Removed back panel, and metal cover. Just above antenna/cable input, its a small fan,mine was full of dirt. Blow off dirt, and make sure its turning freely.
Install back the covers, an voila....its a miracle...its working again.

You haven't specified the model number of remote control you possess; that is why I send this remote controls codes.
 Locate the 5-digit code for your DIRECTV® Receiver
 Power on the DIRECTV Receiver
 Slide the MODE switch to the DIRECTV position
 Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT keys until the
green light under the DIRECTV position flashes twice,
then release both keys
 Using the number keys, enter the 5-digit code. If
performed correctly, the green light under the
DIRECTV position flashes twice
 Aim the remote at your DIRECTV Receiver and press
the PWR key once. The DIRECTV Receiver should
turnoff; if it does not, repeat steps 3 and 4, trying each
code for your brand until you find the correct code
