I have an lg 50pt8 plasma tv with hdd.
the hard drive wont work, it just says
( hdd initialisation in progess please try again later!)
any help would be great.
Check your owners manual and see if there is a way to format the hard drive. If so, format it and try it again.
If not, or if you can't get past the hdd error, check your owners manual and see what type of hard drive it takes. Go to your local computer store, buy one and install it in your TV. This SHOULD stop the error message, and allow you to format the new drive using your TV's menu structure. Again, check the owners manual for formatting instructions.
If you are an experimental type of person, you can install the tv hard drive in an external hard drive case, plug it into your computer and try to get it running.
Finally, if it turns out to be some kind of proprietary hard drive you may have to check with LG to purchase a replacement.
