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.

How can I make a NEC Plasma Monitor that was given to me work like a TV that has AUDIO?


If it has no internal sound, then you obviously can't make it function like a TV aside from the picture right? It does have inputs whether HDMI or standard Cable wiring to see TV from a cable box?

You'd need to have RCA cables coming from the cable box (Audio out - white wire I'd figure) going into a stereo near the monitor that has a VIDEO button on it where the white RCA cable is plugged into the Audio In jack.

A stereo receiver or even old sort of stereo with a Video or Auxillary sort of jack with button to activate that jack will allow for surround sound from the stereo coming from the cable box in sync with the video of the TV.

HOW I CAN HAVE OUTPUT FRO AUDIO LINE ROM LG 55LH5000???


Hi, sorry but Most LG's no longer have audio outputs. The easiest way to get it ,You need to take the audio output from the source i.e. "cable box output"..if you have of course...
However whether your TV has this output or not we need to make some tests..5 different connections possibilities provided below.
(not by priority..you can start with any of it ).Below ,there is a sample TV back panel picture as well
Possible CONNECTIONS:
1) 2x RCA ports red / white is audio out ( L + R ) of TV to Stereo..
2) You can get also the audio digital output from the TV to a A/V receiver. the tv's optical audio out is stereo only mainly designed for freeview or tv audio to be output,
set the audio ouput on the TV menu to Dolby Digital, connect a digital optical out directly to the A/V receiver to receive audio signals.
3) since your TV has :2 x HDMI, SCART, AV, Component Video, VGA-sub, USB 2.0, connections,you may use the SCART plug to get Audio output for your TV .
TV's SCART connector which has 21 pins and "2x Audio Output " pins should be in it.
you need to buy an adapter called " RGB Scart Male to 3 RCA AV Female Adapter Converter" that can easily be found any electronic Market..one example as found eBay URL is below..
http://cgi.ebay.com/RGB-Scart-Male-3-RCA-AV-Female-Adapter-Converter-/130389078197
After you get this adapter,you need to carry the audio signal from SCART's RCA plugs to your Receiver with a 2x RCA (white/red ) cable.(if this does not work ,mfg should state somewhere in the manual..as your TV's "SCART socket IN only" ) if you properly connect IN/OUT plugs you will able to get the audio signal of the TV thru stereo..I recommend 2 $ value "RGB-Scart-Male-3-RCA-AV-Female-Adapter-Converter" with IN/OUT switch on it.
4) use HDMI connection of TV if you have HDMI input on your stereo of course...
5) if these are not an audio-out on one of these connectors , so you'll need to use the headphone socket if you want to plug it into a stereo. you need a cable 2x RCA to 3.5mm Headphone jack.
( This is the last ditch solution , since it mutes the whole sound.) ..
NOTE: if you connect this, pls be careful,your TV voice level will drive the stereo volume....

Hope this helps!..if more help requires Would you please let me know the result ?
Take care and please

How do i switch my lg 42pg20-ua to digital audio outpu


you shouldn't need to switch anything, you do however need an audio reciever with a digital audio in jack, that's all connect the d.a.o. to the stereo in the right jack, and you should be good to go.

I've been having this audio issue with my LG 19LG30 for awhile now. Only recently discovering what exactly was going on. My audio would go in and out on some channels. There would be sound then muted for a...


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..

please rate my help!

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:

Westinghouse TV no stereo


Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
Why don't you simply run the cable box and DVD stereo outputs direct to the receiver. Thats what most people do. TVs do not passthrough stereo signal very well do to DHCP compliance requirements .

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.

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.
