If the LP is turned on AND the LP detector is on then it may be the regulator needs attention. The pressure may be too low or it may be failing. Check those first two things and be sure you have good flow. Turn on the stovetop burner and see if the flame has any orange in the flame tips.

There is orange on the flame

That pretty much shows that the pressure at the regular is too low. Most shops can adjust this if you take it off and into them. Or a new one is about $35 for a Marshall regulator which is about the best in my view. Get that taken care of and then get back to me if we need to dig deeper into this.
