Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have unplugged the power cord for 5 min. I have switched to different inputs, such as Sat receiver, Blue Ray player, DVD player and ant. All of which are hooked up to a completely different input on the TV and I still get the same 6 inch long horizontal lines up the left side of the screen.

That can be the T-CON board failure or main board. It can be heat relate so you will need freeze spray for electronics troubleshooting to cool down the T-CON board first to see if it starts working again.
You should also check the power supply first to make sure it does not have any bad caps and the DC output voltages are OK.

I just picked up the Samsung HW C560S receiver. I'm trying to run a cable box as well as a blue ray player through it connected by HDMI. Blue Ray seems to work fine but can not get picture from cable box....


When you run the cable box and the blue ray player to your receiver you use two sets or cords yes? there for you need to run two sets of cords to your TV from the receiver. Have you done this? Both the DVD and Cable box will have different inputs to the TV. Turn the cable box on and cycle through the inputs on the TV. One should pop up for the DVD and a different one for the cable. Let me know if this works.

  • 1 Check the power. Don't be embarrassed if your problem is as simple as an unplugged power cord. It's better that you should discover this than pay a repair technician to come out to your house and find out.
  • 2 Isolate the problem. The main troubles that will crop up with a TV set are either no picture, no sound or both.
  • 3 Check the input setting on your remote control. If you have other devices connected to the TV, such as a video game system, those devices must be used with a different input setting than the input you use for watching programs or movies on a DVD or Blu-Ray player. Chances are, the kids were playing a game and forgot to turn the input back the way it was.
  • 4 Press the Input button on your remote control to return to the setting you wish to use. For example, the cable box might be connected to Input 1 and your DVD player might be connected to Input 2. Newer television sets have at least 3 inputs.
  • 5 Check the coaxial connection from your cable or satellite receiver to the television. The cable should be attached securely by twisting the round lock nut clockwise. Also check the power connections for the satellite or cable receiver. If either is unplugged, you won't receive a programming signal on the TV.
  • 6 Make sure the video cable is securely attached to the TV jack if you have a home theater system. The video cable runs from the Video Out jack on your home theater receiver to the Video In jack on the back of your TV.
  • 7 Check your receiver setting. Home theater receivers manage several components, so if you have the receiver set to operate the CD player but you are trying to watch a movie on your Blu-Ray player, you'll need to change the selection to Blu-Ray to watch the movie on your TV.
  • 8 Check the TV speakers to see whether they have been muted by accident. Press the volume button on your remote control or go to the Menu section and scroll down until you reach TV Speakers. Toggle left or right to turn the speakers on or off.
  • 9 Press the speaker button on your receiver to make sure your external home theater speakers are activated. Many home theater systems use external for their superior audio rather than the speakers inside a television

    Cannot get sound out of the system


    Was everything working before you connected the new blue ray? Start by trouble shooting the receiver by starting over. Unplug everything except speakers. Switch to FM tuner, tune in a local station and see if you get any sound. Be sure you have the correct A or B speakers selected. This unit also has different sound options and default should be on "2 way" so only the two front speakers are to receive a signal.
    If you get nothing, turn the volume to max and let us know if you get even a faint buzz. Follow up with results.

    Screen is blue


    Good Day, o_fraile;
    Blue screen normally means your TV is not receiving a signal.
    1. Reset TV by unplugging TV's A/C cord from source for 3 to 5 minutes...... plug back in
    2. Do the same to "BOX" ( cable, sat & etc)
    3. Make sure input is the correct, all inputs, turn DVD and others on and go through inputs.
    Good Luck, big IRISH.

    Optical inputs


    In short yes!

    If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.

    If i was you i would do the following:

    1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
    2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
    3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.

    That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.

    However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.

    But in short yes to your question.

    hope this is not too confusing.

    good luck
