Make sure you went to the right selection under the menu option and try using the remote to select the aux option to return to regular tv channels. If it is still stuck on only sound, leave it unplugged overnight and check it in the morning to see if it is back to normal. It should have reset by the morning and it should work the same as before.

Lg plasma tv 42PA4500 no picture


1) Make sure it is plugged in
2) check the power cord to make sure it is tight on both ends
3) plug something else into the wall outlet to make sure that it is working properly
3) If the power light comes on than it is not a power problem, check the cords to the cable TV or to the DVD player, or whatever it is you are trying to watch
4) If the power light comes on but the screen is black, use your remote to make sure you are on the correct input channel to watch whatever you have hooked up to the TV. For instance, if you are watching cable, and it is plugged into input 4, you need to make sure that you have input 4 selected or else you will get a black screen.

New Samsung HDTVs use the GREEN RCA input for the yellow RCA video cable, plug it in there. Select the AV input on the TV. For sound, connect white RCA cable to white RCA input on TV.

  • 1 Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find out.
  • 2 Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
  • 3 Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the way it was.
  • 4 Press the Input button on your remote control to return to the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2. Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
  • 5 Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't receive a programming signal on the TV.
  • 6 Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
  • 7 Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player, you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on your TV.
  • 8 Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or right to turn the speakers on or off.
  • 9 Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television

    I have a sorround sound lg and im trying to watch a movie and there is no image. my tv says that i have no signal but the sound comess out. i dont know what to do.


    Sound comes out because your player is working and speakers are connected to the DVD/VCD/BlueRay/ Home theater (what ever your player is). However, you may not have connected the video cable to the TV. (I think this is the case because, usually when you connect the video cable, LG pops up a message; something like: New input connected, Do you want to enjoy it with a Yes/ No option, which you can select using the remote. If you have connected the video cable you need to select the correct input in the TV. Click the input button on your remote. That will show you the various inputs, use the right/left arrow to scroll through the active inputs. If you are connecting an HDMI cable to connect the player to TV, select it. If you use A/V cable select it. If you are using a S Video cable, select that. If a component cable is used select that as your input. Once this is done correctly you will have signal. Hope this helps. Anil

    It sounds like you may not be on the correct input selection on the tv to watch the dvd player. Ther are probably three or four inputs to choose from on your tv. whichever input you hooked the dvd player into on the tv is the same imput you have select using the tv's remote control in order to watch movies on the dvd player.

    Problem is probably with your cable box as you have confirmed that the set is working by using the dvd player, that is unless you have a bad cable for the cable box.

    Maryann,
    You should have an RCA cable connector with your DVD player (three wire connector color coded yellow, red, white). If you plug one end of that into your DVD player (out) and into the input #1 in the back of your TV that should be sufficient. Then just select from the input menu on your Tv to watch that input. You do this by the buttons on the lower left of the TV. One is marked "input/exit". Pressing that button should bring-up your input menu then use "menu/select" button to select input 1 and try playing the DVD...
    I do have the owner and service manual if you need it just let me know...
