SOURCE: i Have a 37LC50CB LG

You will need to get into the installer menu to do this. To activate the installer menu, just press MENU repeatedly until the TV seems to stop responding, then press 9,
8, 7, 6, then ENTER to access the Installer's menu. To remove the Installer's menu, press
ENTER again. When the menu appears, scroll down to item 117 and press enter. 117 is the factory reset and should get rid of the commerical mode.

SOURCE: 42" Plasma LG TV stuck on faint white parental screen.

Sounds that the Tuner and Video IF section to your TV has the fault. Seek tech support. This is a highly skilled work.

How do i hook up a dvd player to a tv

Depending on what model tv and dvd player you have, it will be either HDMI (one cable for audio/video), RCA Yellow(video) red/white (audio), or Composite (3 for video and 2 for audio). Make sure you connect the cable you choose to the INPUT of your tv and then you have to use your tv remote to change the input (ex: hdmi 1, or aux, video 1 etc) depending on your model and input you choose.

Where do I hook up the red, yellow, and white chords to the tv for my wii console to work?

The yellow is video, and the red and white are for audio. All of the ports on your TV are labeled in some fashion or another. Start with the video. You're looking for an "in" port. It will say something like "Video In" or "RCA In" or "Component In". It doesn't really matter how it's labeled, just look for a yellow port marked "in".

You'll then do the same for your audio. Find a red and white port that are right next to each other, and labeled "in". Once they're all plugged into the "in" ports, you'll have to switch your TV to the correct input. It should be something along the lines of "AUX 1" or "RCA 1" or "Video 1", something of that nature. The way you'll know for sure is to make sure your yellow plug is in the yellow "in" port, ensure your Wii is turned on, then keep switching your TV's inputs until you see your Wii's menu.

If you have the Insignia NS-42L550A11 (inputs shown here - - or something like it), you might have a hard time plugging all of your devices into the TV.

Your DVD player might have a Component Out - if so, plug it (all 5 plugs) into the "Component" section of the TV. If you don't have a Component video cable, you can simply use a couple of Red, White, and Yellow cables instead - just be sure you connect the proper ends so the colors from the DVD match the colors to the TV.

As for your Wii and Playstation - I believe they both have the simple Red, White, and Yellow output plugs (labeled "AV IN" on the back of your Insignia). Because your TV only has 1 input for "AV IN," you might need to purchase a switch of some kind that you can plug your Wii and Playstation into and the switch will have 1 set of Red, White, and Yellow plugs to hook into the TV. The other option is to simply plug and unplug your Wii or Playstation directly to/from the TV depending on what you're playing... not an ideal scenario (particularly if you don't have easy access to the back of your TV.

The following link is for a 2-way switch that would do what you're looking to do. You could even get a 3-way switch and plug all 3 devices into it if your DVD player doesn't have a Component Out.

How would i be able tp put aux/video on my TV without a remote? All we have are the buttons that are lready on the tv, we can go to menu but we dont know where to go after that. Please help, we are trying...

Some Tv's will allow you to simply channel change down for example.. 3,2,1, then the input/or aux channels show up as comp, HDMI,AUX. If you have tried this and it doesnt work and there is no button on the tv that says source/input or aux you may be able to change it in menu. Look for an option in the menu that says source. Unfortanatly not many tvs have this option.

I have a 1998 zenith color tv and i want to attach a wii. I plugged the video cords to the inputs and turned the wii on and the tv on to aux The wii does not display on the tv. Please...

Are you SURE that you have the wii plugged into the inputs of the tv - red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow? (You would be surprised how many people plug them into the output rca plugs.) Are you SURE that you have the correct aux selection - many tvs of that timeframe have two: a front and a rear. If your wii cable works on another tv (try it if you don't know), then my guess is that your tv is not working right. You could try using an rf converter to plug it into the rf connector (threaded) of the tv and run the tv on ch 3 or 4.

How do I hook up my dvd player and WII system to my Dynex 42 inch LDC flat panel tv so they are both in color, what inputs do I use ?

Allot depends on your DVD player and WII. Since the TV is a color one unless the movie your watching on the DVD player is B/W it will play in color, same with the WII. If your DVD player supports HDMI then select one of the HDMI ports on the TV (there are 3) same for the WII depending on what outputs it supports select one of the corresponding inputs on your TV. The user manual shows several options for various components and should be of some assistance in your connections.
