Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Transparent horizontal bar

Hello, I have a weird problem with my new Plasma TV. I have it connected to a home theater system. My system is a kenwood receiver. It has 150w speakers, subwoofer, kenwood DVD player, and a Dish network DVR all connected to this receiver. I'm running a monster video cable from the video port in the receiver, directly to the video port in back of the LG Plasma TV. Everything works fine, but now I have this transparent vertical bar that floats slowly from the bottom of the screen, to the top. I know for a fact there isn't a problem with the TV itself. At first I had the TV directly plugged into my DVR alone, and it worked fine. But now that I have the TV plugged into my home theater setup, I get the horizontal bar. Is it some kind of intereference? Or, would running a S-video connection from the receiver to the TV fix it?

Plasma tv/home theater

Is your Panasonic set to monitor the HDMI input? Just like selecting a mode input on the Tv you must also select the mode input on the surround system.

How do I replace the speakers on this Plasma screen

Just purchase a home theater sound system. It will sound a lot better than the original speakers that came with the TV. You could also connect external speakers to the audio out connectors on the back of your TV instead of buying the home theater system.

We just bought a 60 inch plasma TV. We have a home theater which works fine when we run DVD's, but we would like to connect to the optical digital audio out port so we can hear the TV sound though our home...

If your surround system has either white/red phono connectors or scart marked as "aux in" or "tv in" or similar, and the TV has a headphone out socket, then you could use these. The cable required will be available on e-bay or a good electronic stockist.

Panasonic 1080p Plasma TH-42PZ80U Home Theater Setup Question

Hey Gamer1827,

While I personally can't provide you with any model-specific home theater system recommendations, there are a couple of common ways that you can generally configure your home theater.

Connecting several devices directly to the HTIB system may typically allow you to minimize the number of remote controls necessary, as long as the HTIB system supports the use of a universal remote. Should you not necessarily care if you have to change back-and-forth between two remotes however, you may have a wider variety of possible configurations available.

In order to use only HDMI cable connections to set up your home theater, you most likely would need an HTIB system with three HDMI ports: one for your TV, one for your PS3 and one for your cable box. Each device would require a separate HDMI cable running between it and the receiver. This option (in theory) would allow you to use one universal remote to control each device, assuming that they are all compatible with the same remote.

Another common configuration you might wish to try requires you to connect your cable box and PS3 directly to your TV. By doing so however, you might limit yourself to using an optical digital audio cable to make the connection between your TV and many HTIB systems. In this configuration, the cable box and PS3 would again have their own separate HDMI cables, while the optical digital audio cable would need to be run from the Digital Audio-Out port on the back of your TV to the Digital Audio-In port on the receiver. This option essentially treats the HTIB system as an expansion device, instead of the center of your home theater configuration.

Should you need any additional information or suggestions, remember that you may always speak with a sales representative at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Had same problem with my PRO1000 - faint horizontal bands moving from bottom up (sometimes sationary).

Home theater system connections

I have the same tv but my dvd surround is a toshiba, that shouldn't matter though. When I watch a dvd I go to component 2 which is where I have my dvd connected on the input of the tv when I watch tv and want the surround on I go to component 1 which is the tv input then on my dvd player I go to auxillary and I can watch tv in surround. I don't know the LG home theatre system but you should be able to select your inputs like between dvd, tuner, aux. Flip between them and you should get sound. hope this helps.
