Do you have the correct remote? That would be my first question. But most sony remotes will change channels and turn set on and off. Do you have the owners manual? If i'm not mistaken, that thing has a memory stick input doesn't it? Try that and let me know what happens. Thank you and good luck. Jay

This is a common problem with plasma tvs You did not mention whether you could generate any sound like through your dvd player or something like that. Whether you have audio or not makes a difference on which board may be causing you the problem. Just because it does not have a picture for tv viewing does not mean it won't produce some type of sound through your av1 input. Try it and I'll try to be more specific.

Checking your remote can be done with any digital camera since they can 'see' the infrared light from them but I suspect the remote is working; generally, if they are emitting anything, it will be sending correct correct pulse trains.
Having the camera 'live' you will be able to see that the remote is working by aiming the remote at the camera's lens and pressing any button while watching the camera's LCD display. The output of the remote will appear as white or near white blinking lights.
> I've tried to reset to factory settings but when I've got into the service menu I can't input anything?
Often the service settings require entering some code (password) sequence to access factory settings and it may not be possible to enter the code if one or the other end of the IR system isn't functioning.
Summary; I think the remote transmitter is OK but the receiver in the set is not decoding the received signal despite it indicating that something was received.
I think the set itself is a fault and you will need a tech on site on in the shop to search for the right board to replace since the IR receiver may be part of the main board (expensive) or a separate assembly (somewhat less expensive).

How do I adjust color on my Sony tv with Shaw universal remote?


Take your Shaw remote control, and follow the instructions on the back. If that does not work, telephone Shaw, and ask for technical support for TV.
Once it is setup, press the TV button on the Shaw remote control, and press the MENU button. That should show the TV's "setup" menu.

My lglf7700 has the passcode enabled and i have forgotten it how do i do a factory reset please.


Try this...

The following functions are going to vary depending on the LG model that you have, as manufacturer updates are made without consumer notice.

Turn on the TV, press and hold the menu button on the remote and on the TV simultaneously until a menu shows on the screen. That *MAY* be the service menu.
On the bottom of that menu there will be a selection that reads "load defaults." Toggle down to it with the remote, press enter and then exit the menu by pressing the menu button on the remote.

Or try this...
Turn on the TV. Press and hold the menu button on the remote until a 4 digit passcode prompt comes on the screen...should take about 5 seconds. Enter 8741. Another menu *MAY* come on the screen with a selection for loading factory defaults. Toggle down to it with the remote, press enter and then exit the menu by pressing the menu button again.

Hi there,

One possible solution to access the service menu on LG tv's is as follows with steps 1 - 4:

1. With the TV on, press and hold the MENU button on the TV front panel.
2. While holding that button, press and hold the MENU button on your remote.
3. Hold both buttons for ~5 seconds until the service menu comes up on the TV.
4. Release the remote MENU button first, then the TV MENU button.
If you are looking to reset the lamp indicator then continue with the following steps 5 - 11:

5. Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV front panel.
6. While holding that button, press and hold the MUTE button on the remote.
7. Hold both buttons until the Lamp Life Hours show up on your TV screen.
8. Release the MUTE button first, then the ENTER button on the TV front panel.
9. Make a note of the lamp hours if you want.
10. To reset the lamp hours, press the SELECT button (the one between the four arrow keys with two concentric circles on it) on your remote.
11. It will ask you to confirm the reset--press SELECT again to confirm.

To verify you've reset the hours, you can repeat steps 1-9 above and then just press the EXIT button on your remote.

Hope this helps. Regards, James.
