Sounds like a software or firmware issue...

    Im not sure, but you should be able to download an update from lg and save it to a flash drive. If the tv has the capability, which it should. Try their website and or call their tech support line about the issue to see what they say.

For audio from my samsung led tv to my samsung av receiver must i use an optical cable connection?


There should be setting menu on tv whereby you can select RCA or optical.samsung units have automatic selectivity when you use optical cables so they will gives instant output when switched on....make sure you pull off the plastic ends covers ,they only go in one way into the connection ports.if you only have RCA leads you may have to set up the output audio on tv menu.

I recently purchased a new Samsung Blue Ray player. My previous Sony DVD player used the blue,green, red cords plugged into DVD imput, and I used Coaxial for sound. The Blue Ray only uses HDMI, which the...


Optical carries only 5.1 sound, no video. HDMI carries both video and sound. If your receiver doesn't have HDMI, check your TV for optical output. You can go BluRay to TV via HDMI, then TV to receiver via optical.

If you don't have optical out on your tv, you're going to need either a receiver with HDMI or a BluRay player with component output (blue, green, red).

I bought a insignia plasma tv and a panasonic surround sound with blue ray. Both were open box and no manuel. I hooked up the surround sound and it works good with the blue ray. I can not get it to work...


Basically, you have to use the output audio from the TV to go to the receiver.
On the TV, there should be a red and white audio output jacks for left and right. Or, if the TV has it, the best audio output to use for surround sound is optical output. You'll have to buy a optical cable for this.

8' Optical Cable from TV to Receiver and Signal is Breaking Up


Before you buy anything try checking the AUDIO Settings in the Menu of Each Device (Mostly TV) and see if they are set to PCM or BITSTREAM. HDMI is mostly set to PCM while Optical is generally Bitstream. The TV may be set to the opposite of what it needs to be. I would try to get PCM to work first cause it is Better, If not then set what you can to Bitstream and it should pass. Also check in TV Menu for SOUND OUT or AUDIO OUT or SPEAKERS. Some TV's have a problem passing Audio through when they are already Outputting them to it's own Speakers! I Hope this Helps out!

No color and no audio


yes , this is why , on your dvd there is a "yellow for video" output on it ,and then there is a "red output jack for right audio"
and then there is a "white output jack for left audio" does your tv have these inputs?

the blue , green and red "RCA JACKS" are called " composite video" which seperates the colors of given video

the red and white RCA jacks are for right and left audio and are required when using composite or the yellow video jack

there is also a "s-video" connection that is one cable but seperates the colors for better picture quality ( dvd player only)( vcr and tuner do not work with this)

then there is a optical or coax digital connection for a reciever that decodes the connections audio digital signals for dolby digital surround sound

No surround sound when attaching hdmi to TV


Try running the optical TOSLINK cable from the TV to the receiver. If the TV doen't have a digital optical output, then try going into the menu on your cable box and setting the audio output to the digital optical out. Also check your TV menu and make sure NETCOMMAND is diabled. Some of your newer HDTV have Netcommand that allows the TV to control other devices through the HDMI cable.
