Question about LG 42PG20 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Audio sync issues between my stereo and my new LG 42PG20.

The Audio signal is being received and transmitted by the stereo before my TV. I have Optus Cable TV and have tried to adjust the sound settings, no joy, I have moved the stereo cables through all the AV sockets and researched the internet only to be told I will most likely have to buy an additional device to correct the audio issues. I am loathe to do this as other advice from troubleshooting forums is that this sync issue can be fixed by a software upgrade.

Can anyone help as this tv is less than a week old and had I known about the sync issue with LG Plasma's, I might have considered a different brand. I had an older TV (not flat panel plasma) connected the stereo and there were no issues.

Any advice that does not involve the purchase of additional devices would be appreciated.

No bass from Bose AM 15 Sub


Sub will only work in surround mode, not stereo mode. Also source must have sub component (5.1, 7.1, 9.1 etc) If your system was transmitting sub signal before, be sure you have chosen a mode which includes a sub signal.

I have an older model Yamaha HTR 5830 receiver and I want to set it up for surround sound (5.1). When I test the receiver all five speakers give back a signal, but nothing ever comes out of the center or...


The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

to eliminate the problem just select the mono sound disable the stereo signal.so that your tv sound will be stable.this happens because not all tv stations are broadcasting on stereo signal thats why your tv keep on switching to mono and stereo base on what signal it receives.plus the signal being feed by the cable provider sometimes they are not stable enough to give the stereo signal so better select only the mono sound...tnx hope i helped you..

There are several known issues that can cause that.

The top candidate is the main board, the next is the Y-Main board.

Here's a link for repairing the power supply board of LG 42PG20, which also contains a link to how to test your own board to see if it is good or not:

Speaker crackle


HDMI is a High Definition Multimedia Interface and has the capability to transmit both AUDIO and VIDEO all in one cable. Your setup right now is transmitting 2 audio frequecys (L/R stereo RCA and HDMI) into the Denon inputs. Not necessary! I would recommend eliminating the red/white audio cable from the direct tv box to the Denon.

After doing such, your receiver should be able to process audio/video signals appropriately. REMEMBER to unplug all POWER CORDS before reconnecting any speaker/audio/video cable, as it may cause a small electrical surge and fry a micro component in your system!

Sound issue on LG 42LG50


make sure the dish network menu settings in setup under audio are on high. Some tv's require it to be off. Try both and see what works. Also the delay is caused by digital conversion. new stereos have settings for this delay and they have delay boxes for sale online. You could try to change your delay settings on your stereo surround to help. I had to do this.

Hmm. let me see if I get U correctly. you use u'r theater system with a TV and the audio is fed via optical or U have DVD player that you can feed the audio via optical or coax. I think it is the later, if it is U could be having trouble with sound decoding setting of the DVD player itself. It's like mpeg out or PCM out instead of full DTS or 5.1 dolby digital decoding. If this is the case just use u'r dvd remote and check the audio play back settings. If this does not solve u'r problem, pls state u'r set up briefly, so tht I can understand the type of connection u use. Happy troubleshooting Rifaa

Audio vs Video


Happens mostly on your local channels right? This is a issue with the local broadcaster and not directv. Due to the digital transition this has been a widespread issue. Until the local affiliate for NBC, ABC, etc. fully transmit a digital signal then this sync problem is to be expected.
