SOURCE: lg 37in the picture cquality in hd is sometimes fuzzy

There is quite a lot you can do. Go to menu, picture settings and select user 1. From here you can adjust everything from colour to contrast to warmth to sharpness. The best thing to do is to swith to XD manual adjustment and make sure the mpeg noise reduction is set to max. This removes artifacts and gives a better picture. Oddly, connecting via SCART rather than HDMI will give a more watchable picture if the HD broadcast is't at a very high bit-rate. I hope that helps :o)

SOURCE: Best Picture Quality

The set may not be at fault. If you are on cable some channels are still in anolog and some are digital. if you are on a nolog channel the picture will look preaty bad compared to the digital ones.

SOURCE: LG 42PC56 ps3 best settings?

Your PS3 should detect when you set up a HDMI connection then just follow the onscreen instructions. If it does'nt unplug the HDMI cable and use the scart cable. Then unplug the scart cable and plug in the HDMI cable your PS3 should detect this HDMI cable and it will notify you on screen.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Poor picture quality

First of all do you have a HD signal?
these sets are made for HD and most look good when you set the HD box to 1080i , the cheaper sets do not look good with a non HD signal.
check all inputs, dvd, HD air, and component and post which are bad to get more help

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

I have a plasma lg 50 inch. Model 50px5d. The picture is extremely dim. Little black spots appear then fade away I am wondering what the cause would be and if it's able to be fixed pretty cheap. I...

If the picture looks like a dim swirling cloud etc it is likely the display panel (front screen unit) which is sealed and has an inert gas inside has ruptured.

It is the end of the set if this as I suspect is the case--Panel for a 1,000 dollar set will cost over 1200 dollars if even available.

42lh3000 Right half of screen is black but goes better when warms up, still flickers at times, how can i repair this? The tv is about 2 years old and never had a problem with it before, the sound is great...

I have fixed an LG 42LH3000 with this very problem. Large TVs have a tendency to flex and bend ever so slightly when being moved or through heat, this can affect the connection of the ribbon cables at the top of the screen - either at the end where the Tcon board is or where the screen driver board is. When one end of the cable loses contact, half the picture goes (there are two ribbon cables. one for each side of the screen).
Remove the cables then carefully reattach them. If you still have an intermittent problem would suggest leaving the screws out of the T-con board as this will give the ribbon cable more slack.
Don't attempt any of this unless you know what you're doing - risk of damage to screen if handled indelicately also risk of fire when plugged back if the ribbon cables aren't secured properly.

LG M2262D, HDMI input bad quality?

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya!

Is this only on the HDMI connection?

This particular monitor supports another digital input called DVI, a white connector. Connect your monitor to your computer via the DVI connector see if this changes the state of the problem. Also try the VGA connection, however you wouldn't want to run this LCD on an Anolog connection for everyday use.

Also do the following:
Right click your desktop and select properties.
Click the Settings tab and ensure that the colour quality (found to the right of the resolution slider bar) is set to (Highest 32Bit)

If you find that your monitor works well on the DVI connection then one could say that the HDMI cable is either of bad quality or faulty. Installing the latest available drivers from the AMD website is a good idea, be sure to get the drivers for your version of the windows operating system. (32Bit or 64Bit)

Please be sure to rate this session.

Take care!

My picture enlargements seem to be fuzzy on the paper no matter how carefully I try to focus. Why?

It's possible you have the setting for picture quality set too low. You want to always shoot at the maximum number of megapixels your camera is capable of. Also, most cameras also allow you to set the picture quality to a setting such as fine, extra fine, etc.

Hi I am using my LG 42LH3000 LCD TV as a monitor for my Dell M65 Precision Laptop, which works fine but only as long as i have the lop top open, as soon as i close the lid of the lap top the TV goes blank....

Make sure you set the right action for the laptop closing. Right click on the battery or plug icon on far right of the windows bar the go to power option.

Then make sure that for any power mode the computer won't enter the sleep state when closing the lid.

If this doesn't work, you might have a dell specific software the takes care of the power setting and override the windows default one, try to find it and alter the settings as mentionned above.

good luck

I am looking for a remote control,operating instructions or manual and the connecting cables for a 42inch lg tv model 42LH 3000 xd full hd 1080p digital freeview lcd

The manual for the 42LH3000 is available from LG at the product page: . Click on the Support Tab. Alternative site: again click on Support for the link to the manual.

LG has a repair parts referral page, . Go to the site to find your area supplier. The LG remote that I found is . This is a Midwest US supplier; this site may also have the power cord and covers that came with the TV if they are missing on yours. Ferrite cores may or may not included but are available at stores like Radio Shack or online.

The UK repair parts site is: . is the supplier and has the remote, power cord and screws for the base listed.

Universal remotes should also work if they were programmed 6 months or more after the TV was released. Low end universal remotes may not match all of the features. You'll probably need to try several codes to make sure the remote works for all the features, not just on/off. The high end remotes that can be programmed via a USB connection to a computer are the fastest to set up.

The other cables to connect your TV are available at most stores that sell electronics (with a markup) or online cable suppliers. I like but there are others.

I hope this helps.

To use sky+ remote control with LG 42LH3000 you must have a rev ver8 remote controller.
The codes are stored in a database of the Sky remote. If the old codes don't work
you may need to buy the latest Sky remote. Otherwise it is a matter of waiting for the
new Sky remote which may have the updated codes.
Note: LG Support supplied the following for Rev.8: 0206, 1293, 1665, 1174, 1176, 1219, 1280, 0857, 0851.

Version 1: August 1998
Version 2: December 1999
Version 4: May 2001 (Sky+ introduced)
Version 6: March 2004
Version 8: January 2006 (includes all current Sky+HD remote controls)
