hi - I have an LG smart TV and I have it on the internet but have a little box in the lower right corner showing what is on the tv - there is a little X to close the box but I am not able to click it - when I click the box it exits the internet and goes back to the TV - how can I shut off that tv insert feature please?
JA: Just to clarify, what's the exact make and model of your smart tv?
Customer: 42ln5700
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: the tv menu works - I don't know re your second question
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: today is the 1st day I tried to use the internet with it - the little box is not there if I go into say amazon prime or hulu
JA: Anything else you want the Expert to know before I connect you?

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

So when you go into an app (netflix, amazon, etc) do you just get a blank screen, or some type of error message?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
no the apps work fine - it is just on the internet screen, I see what is on TV in a little insert box in the lower right - I just want to close that box\

Okay you mean you are seeing the tv channel still, like a preview box?

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
exactly - so it covers that part of the screen and I would like it to go away :-) is there something in settings maybe?

My apologies for the delay. The site is not quite instant, but please try to send only a single response and allow me time to receive it and respond back; multiple messages can get lost in the queue and further delayed.

Do you see a PIP button on your LG tv remote? If so, you'll press that to clear it and go back to full screen. Let me know if that works.

I do not see aPIP button on the remote

If you don't see that, try pressing the BACK or Exit button

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
in either case it just kicks me back out to the tv

Can you arrow over, so you are using the arrow buttons to select the larger streaming window (rather than highlighting the small tv window) then press OK to select it.

Customer: replied 26 days ago.
nothing happens
Customer: replied 26 days ago.
I got rid of it! I clicked something

That is the arrow over process, you either selected the main screen or highlighted the small one to close it. Glad it is working for you!

If you have any other questions, just let me know. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate my service as this is the only way I am credited for my time.
