How do I skip unused inputs in the input selector for my LG?

I have an LG 47LH40. It used to skip the unused inputs but now I have to cycle through all the inputs before getting to the ones I am using. This was after the tv went to power only mode (which I fixed thanks to this site). Is there a setting for that on that model?

SOURCE: Input setting

When you turn off the set, are you turning it off by running the power through a cable or satellite box? If you are shutting down the set from the AC mains side the set can lose all of its user set-up. In most TV models, the main power supply must have the AC mains connected.

The power supply goes in to a standby mode when the TV is turned off by its own power switch (not by the AC mains). The supply puts out enough power to keep the uPC and the user memory active.

If the set is properly turned off and it is losing its user set-up, it is possible that there is a fault in part of the uPC circuits. Depending on the model of set, there may be a lithium battery, or memory capacitor, or an EEPROM for keeping the user set-up memory.

1080p video resolution can only be achieved by a Blu-ray Disc. Satellite TV, broadcast TV, cable TV do not actually send out 1080p resolution. So unless you are using a Blu-ray movie, you will not be viewing 1080p. Your HDTV has a NATIVE screen resolution and the TV will SCALE all incoming video to its native resolution. Most people cannot tell the difference between 720p and 1080i. 1080p signal sources are slightly sharper. But if you have a HDTV that is 1080p capable and you give it a 1080p source (Blu-ray Disc) and use a HDMI cable to connect, you will get 1080p, you do not have to change the HDTV as it will automatically display 1080p.

Please provide a model number for this TV, I would have thought being an LED tv that you wouldn't be needing a set-top box as it would be digital already.

I can not get the line in input to work. there is no L1 on the channel selector.

To record from the line input, there is a button on the VCR's remote called INPUT SELECT. Press this button to get your line input. You press it once to select and again to cycle thru the selections. If you have a L2 input, pressing the button again will go to this input and so on.

My harmony 550 always stops one input before the one I need on my TV. my tv has an input button that cycles thru all of the inputs. i've already checked that the inputs are listed properly on the setup...

On some TV's when you first press the input button it does not switch to the next input it just shows you the current input. It is the 2nd press that offten takes you to the next input in the list. This can cause problems with the Harmony. If your TV works this way then you will need to call Logitech and let them know about this issue. They can add the additional hit for you and then you can update your remote. If you are only using 2 inputs then A work around you can try is to tell the Harmony that there are more inputs, effectivly setting up Ghost inputs. You would put one ghost input after each input that you use. If there are 3 or more inputs then this trick will not work. The last work around is to remove unused inputs on your TV. Most TV will allow you to remove unused inputs. Then you can add one ghost input after each actual input: For example:
TV input1
DVD input2
VCR input 3

If I am missing some information just let me know.
I will do my best to help
Good Luck

Tv does not show pictuer screen says no vidio input how do i fix

You don't give much detail, however you might try selecting a different video input. There should be an input selector on the remote and the TV, which when pressed will cycle through all the available inputs. I hope this helps you.

KV-36XBR450 input selection problem

Go into the menu on the TV and go to the far right under setup. Select "video label" then select "program". A menu will come up listing the 7 inputs. Make sure that the input you are using for your PS3 is not set to "skip". While you're there, set any of the other outputs you're not using to "skip". Your TV/Video button will only cycle through the ones that aren't skipped. Have Fun!

Unusable signal prompt on video input

be sure to cycle thru the input selections-- either w/Remote (input button), or channel +/- on the panel. my truflat 26" hd set has side/front/video1 video2 inputs, yours may have more or less. also, be sure you've plugged into an INPUT set, not an OUTPUT set. Does sound work otherwise on this set? If not, maybe interal speakers (menu setting) is set to off/not checked.

And on your PS3--goto the settings menu, sound outputs, make sure you select A/V connector and analog sound. The ps3 cable can become sloppy too, wiggle/check/reseat or try another cabe (usually video is touchy more than the sound though)

If you KNOW you've got the right input selected and the PS3 is setup properly, do you have another device with audio output to test on the TV? a notebook computer, walkman, cd player--anything that has rca outputs for sound--quick swap the cables to the new 'test' device-- if sound is OK with test device, either PS3 setting or cable is bad/wrong. if no sound from test device on TV either the tv is not using proper inputs, or is damaged, or the test device is not properly configured. If you have another input receiving device to test the ps3 output sound, like the LINE INPUT on a notebook computer, or a boombox with Aux inputs, test the PS3 sound output too.

Trouble getting a picture with a source selector

The input on your television monitor must be set to view the composite with the S video cable. You will not be able to view the component video unless you also have component video outputs going from the input selector to the television. After you have done that, you will also have to change your television input from "video 2" to whatever input you used for the component video hookup.
