*********RESET THE DVD PLAYER BACK TO THE DEFAULT SETTING*********
Make sure you do not have a disk in the tray. Using the DVD player remote control:
1) Press the "Setup" button.
2) On the "Right" arrow, press it three times and then press the "Play" button.
3) On the "Down" arrow, press it two times.
4) On the "Right" arrow, press it once, and then press the "Play" button.
5) Press the Setup button.
*The default setting will take affect as soon as you press the setup button (step 5).

From the manual (http://www.lg.com/uk/support-product/lg-RHT498H#manuals_panel):
To reset forgotten password:
a) Display set up menu (see Displaying Set Up Menu)
b) Select lock system icon in left panel
c) Select Lock System from middle panel
d) Enter 
e) Select displayed YES option
f) Press OK [ ]. Password has now been cleared.
You likely have two video input options, s-video and composite (also known as RCA or A/V). All you need to do is change which connector your using in the settings. Look for a button on your remote that says SETUP or OPTIONS. Once you push it, you should get a settings menu. Look for something like REQUIRED SETTINGS or SYSTEM SETTINGS. Play around with it, and you will find the option to select between the connectors.
"You can reset all models of DVD Players with the following method: 1) Switch the player into standby and empty the disc tray. 2) Using the front panel buttons, hold down the STOP button and press
STANDBY/ON to switch the player back on."
I have few options for you to get the video back on HDMI:
1. Try out changing the video resolution on HDMI set up (select 480p..1080p).
2. Play NTSC disc (to get the 60Hz out from Player). If your are in US.
3. Select the TV system as AUTO/NTSC to get the 60Hz out only on HDMI.
4. if the Deep Color option is available in HDMI set up menu..set it to OFF.
Let me know if you tried all these and still no output.
I wish I could find the website that gave all the repair hints for this DVD player, but I downloaded the info, and can no longer find the site. Here is what it says with regard to your symptoms. I hope this helps. I have done all the mods the site suggested, but continue to have difficulty with the remote, tray opening, etc. I have 2 machines and used to love them, but frustration has taken it's toll.
Recovering from a condition with no TV picture Accidentally switching to PAL and getting a rolling black & white picture happens all the time to baffle users, especially on models with a System or P/N key on the remote. To get back your color and sound just switch to the proper system in the menu or put in a movie of the correct type and it can switch automatically or try the procedure below for resetting to the defaults. Sometimes owners will accidentally switch to Progressive Scan in the menu then get no picture at all. You can fix the no picture condition on the CH-300 by resetting the defaults to interlaced as mentioned in the users manual:
"To reset the VIDEO OUTPUT, turn Off the player, turn back On, open the disc tray and press and hold the Stop button on the player for 10 seconds to reset the scan mode." The Reset procedure doesn't seem to work on all versions but you can sometimes get a usable B&W picture allowing you to get to the menu and change the settings by connecting the composite video input of your display to the Red Pr/Cr or Green Y component output jacks on the rear of the cabinet. You can also go into the Menu and set it blind with the following key presses on the Remote: 1. With the unit Stopped, press Setup. 2. Press Enter. 3. Press the Down Arrow 3 times. 4. Press the Right Arrow Once. 5. Press Enter. On 300Z & 300ZS models if the video is set to Progressive Scan and you can't get a viewable picture on the Red or Green jacks try going into the Menu blind and changing it back with the following key presses on the Remote: 1. With the unit stopped, press Setup on the remote. 2. Press the Right Arrow Once. 3. Press Enter. 4. Press the Down Arrow 2 times. 5. Press Enter. 6. Press the Up Arrow 2 Times. 7. Press Enter. This should switch it back to Interlaced scan with S-Video and Composite output. To change the Parental Control setting on the CH-300 use the factory password of 3351. For the CH-400 use 1379.
If you still have use of the on screen menu functions, you can try using the restore to factory setting option in the preferences section of the set-up menu. Press the setup button on the remote control and use the up and down arrows to find and highlight the preferences section, press ok to enter the sub-menu.In the sub-menu use the up and down arrows to find and highlight the default option. Press ok. This will reset the dvd player to the factory settings. If you do not have the use of the on screen menu, you can use the a/v outputs to a external monitor or television to perform the abouve procedure to try to restore the dvd player to normal operation. If all this fails you can call Phillips customer support at this telephone number. 1-888-744-5477 They will be able to help you, either solve your problem or get the dvd player serviced.I hope this information helps you with your problem.
Connect pin 1 & 5 together (momentarily with a small switch), on the remote control handset. with the tv already switched on, This will put the set into the engineering set up mode. You can step between the various options by using the -/-- button. the Mute button invites you to save your changes which I believe is saved when you next press the -/-- button. there are 18 different service pages in all, be very careful not to change things which should be left alone, as this menu controls the way this set operates. The menu button exits the service menu. I believe menu 13 should be the AV-SND options menu, you can select either DK-I-BG or M sound systems. only set one system to "on"at any one time. You may also need to check 14, the C- SYSTEM options Menu. Good Luck, A D.
