Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV
I have a LG 42LC2D tv that has stopped communicating with the remote. Spoke w/LG support and did trouble shooting with no success. As with previous post is has come to the IR sensor. I can not find a picture of the part. Is the the IR sensor just a plug in type device or will require solder?
The IR sensor is in fact a "plug in device" .
The TV will have to be disassembled to replace the sensor.
You should make sure the remote is functioning before you do anything as drastic as taking your tv apart.
I am sure you have tried fresh batteries so the next step would be to hold down any button on the remote, the led light should have a faint pulse, it may be hard to see and you may have to go in a dark room but the led will pulse if the remote is good.
If you have a universal remote, program it for your tv and test functionality.
An RCA universal remote will work with your tv, if the codes don't work do a search with the remote.
If you decide to replace the sensor you should be able to find one at http://www.shopjimmy.com or http://partstore.com.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
