I bought an LG commercial flat screen tv model #LG 42lc5dc.

Customer Question
I bought an LG...

I bought an LG commercial flat screen tv model #LG 42lc5dc. Some of the screen functions are greyed out. Can the hotel mode be disabled and the tv returned to normal function? I cannot get to go full screen as the screen adjustment is greyed out.

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your 42LC5DC?

Just HDMI as that's all I want to do is watch tv or movies from my computer. I don't want to use the tv as a normal tv

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?

No.
