Question about LG 42LG50 42 in. LCD HDTV
I recently bought a 42lg50 lcd tv. I was having problems with the
picture, so an LG service tech came out and installed a new main board,
now the picture looks amazing but my PS3 won't work.
I was playing it on 1080p the afternoon before he came over. He thinks it is a compatibility issue with the new software on the board. I've heard there is a patch you can download for the PS3 to resolve this issue. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Also, the sound doesn't work through my Time Warner cable box anymore. I also have this connected through HDMI, the sound worked before he installed the new board as well. I've also had a TW service tech come out and switched boxes and cables, nothing helped.
Any feedback would be great!
you didn't mention what software version your ps3 is. in this digital age it's important to keep software levels up to date, with some exceptions. i'm including the web address for sony so you can update the ps3, but i don't think it's the problem. once you're are on their site you click on the ps3 picture & that link will take you to the software update pg. there you can review previous software updates. i quickly reviewed 1 of those & didn't see anything that addresses your problem.
have you verified that the HDMI inputs are are enabled correctly? thereare 4 inputs. refer to pgs 25 & 26 of the owner's manual.
I would put the heat on your LG retailer. clearly the new main board is suspect. you had the functions prior to the swap. the board is probably defective, but with a different problem than what you had previously. i visited LG's site. they currently have nothing in their knowledge base that mentions the your problem, nor is there a software update.
if you need additional help. write back. good luck.
