LG TV Model 50PC5D can't switch to HDMI1 or HDMI2

Hello. I just tried to switch my tv using the input button to go to HDMI or HDMI2 so I could watch a dvd, but nothing happens at all?

I watch a dvd last week and everything was fine. Now I have no way to switch between the modes on the actual tv. Does anyone know what might be the solution?

Did you try another HDMI cable?

Did you try another DVD player?

If the above try-outs does not work for you, then the fault is most likely with the HDMI input processor area. For this the set will require service.

SOURCE: PLUGED IN HDMI CORD AND I NOW HAVE NO SOUND THROUGH THE TV

Some of these sets have to run seperate red and white RCA cables along with the HDMI. I know it sounds silly but it is the truth. Look for audio inputs on the back near the HDMI port.

SOURCE: Audio on HDMI(2) output with external audiocord?

The audio from the hdmi out on your computer is turned off. Try connecting another device such as a dvd player to the hdmi input on your tv . If audio works on tv then you know no audio is not available from the hdmi output on you computer.

Switching from HDMI2 watching computer back to HDMI1 to TV channels I have no picture coming on the TV. Why ?


Look if there is a FIRMWARE update for your model of TV and the SAORVIEW.

Many a times, the TV lock in with the frequency and will not release until the proper reset command arrives.

Try switching to a different resolution on the computer before you switch HDMI port

How can I connect my TV to a Dell laptop via HDMI?


if oyur LG tv has multiple HDMI ports, then you might need to choose the correct HDMI port from the 'INPUT' menu. Does the HDMI port on TV (sidepanel / back) has a sticker which denotes the number? if yes, then on tv remote, choose INPUT /SOURCE menu, it will show TV, Component, RGB, HDMI1 , HDMI2, HDM3, etc (depending your tv model, these options might vary) and choose the port number which you plugged the HDMI into. if you do not have a number on the port, then you might need to select each HDMI from "INPUT' menu and wait for a couple of seconds.

How do I switch from tv to my DVD


You aren't telling us what model Samsung TV you have, but if the remote has a "SOURCE" button on it, that is what you normally use to choose which input (HDMI1 HDMI2 AV IN etc.) you want to use.

Just installed my new 32le5300. Cant switch to dvd player. manual won't play on my imac. Can you help?


The manual is available as a PDF here: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/televisions/LG-lcd-tv-32LE5300.jsp . Click on Support and then the Televisions Manual on the right. Just above is a link to Adobe Reader if you need the program.

LG doesn't always support Mac systems but that shouldn't change the manual access if you have a working optical drive. If you have Adobe Reader, then the problem might be that the disc won't autoplay. Try manually accessing the contents of the optical drive. (Open the File explorer and then the optical drive.)

Next: is your DVD player a stand-alone device or is it part of the computer? How have you connected the TV and the DVD player? The model number would help. Generally, you need to change the source for the TV to match where the DVD player's cables are going into the TV. There is a button for this on the TV's remote (and on the TV, just left of the power button) - labeled Input. The DVD player should be off when the TV is turned on and then set to this source. (The TV can get confused otherwise.)

The HDMI and HDMI2 ports should work with a PC connection (1920x1080 with the input label set to PC for the TV if you change the label for the HDMI ports). The entire list of inputs should be TV, HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3, PC (VGA), AV in 1, Component in 1, AV in 2, Component in 2, HDMI4.

I hope this helps.

No picture on hdmi2


First of all connect the Direct TV box to HDMI 2 and see if it works there. If it does then the next step is to connect the DVD player to HDMI and see if it wors there. If not then connect the DVD player to the TV using the component inputs and if the DVD player works on those. If it does then maybe the HDMI interface in the DVD player no longer works as it needs to communicate with the TV.
