So I got my brothers LG 42LW5700. He had it for a few years and always had it connected to PayTv, so he never used the tuner. I connected it up to the antenna and it won't get any reception at all. I understand things with moving parts like to be used from time to time, but why on earth would a tuner fail from not being used? Do I likely need a new tuner?

Thanks

Either you are not attempting to work the set correctly or the tuner is defective.
What type of antenna? Indoor or Outdoor?
Does set scan through channels (auto-tune)?

I tried auto tune, different ports (that have fully working tvs) and got nothing. So I suppose a dvr is the way to go? Probably cheaper than a tuner?

That, or check the pricing of a replacement board with the tuner (and likely the tuning control circuits).
