42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input

TV 42LG50
When viewing blu-ray discs connected via HDMI, the sound will
occasionally mute. The sound can be immediately restored by hitting
volume up or down on the TV remote.
I have not experienced this issue when viewing from a cable box (also
connected via HDMI) or when viewing non blu-ray DVD's (although the player is pretty new and only a small number of movies have been
played so far).
I have swapped the cables and the HDMI input used for the blu-ray player
and the issue remains.

    I have an LG Scarlet 37 inch and a PS3 Blue Ray Player. My problem is the same as yours, in that I loose sound with certain blue ray movies. I have also found by pressing the volume up or down button, the problem is solved. This would not be a huge deal, but at times it can happen every five minutes. I have no problem with viewing tv or regular dvds, which are played from the PS3. I am using a somewhat inexpensive HDMI cord but have also purchased a monster cord. From what I am reading it doesn't seem that the cord will matter? I am wondering if I should just return it before I open it.

You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

I have red,yellow& white come out my dvd and only white & red plug in on the back of my tv how do i make that work and which source and channel i put the tv on


Red and White are audio, yellow is video. On the back of the TV there should be a yellow jack if it takes external inputs. There are two ways to connect your Blu-ray Player to your amplifier. Via HDMI output: Connect the player's HDMI OUTPUT to the corresponding INPUT on your amplifier using an HDMI cable. If your amplifier has an HDMI OUTPUT, connect that to the HDMI INPUT on your TV using an HDMI cable. See if these links help.

I connect new LG Blu -Ray On my Sony Cineza Projector.but only blue colour on the screen ,what is the problem here?


You might have to change the input or start playing blu-ray disc and then change input via the remote to your projector. Make sure it's HDMI out on blu-ray if choice is given and HDMI in on projector.

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

After making sure that you have either connected the player to your TV via HDMI or component video, select the associated input on the TV. If you still have no picture, press the video button on the BDP-S300 remote until you get a picture.

A blu-ray player cleaner will not solve this problem.

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy
