Question about LG 42LB5D 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

42lb5d settings I can't seem to find a way to get into the 'Settings' in the picture menu. I can't adjust my screen size and/or resolution. I've tried running my connections through the component and AV ports and both give me the same results.

How do I change the settings on my Westinghouse 50" TV from 720p to 1080p?

Most HDTVs these days do not have settings for resolution. They auto-adjust their resolution (within their specifications) to the signal being received. So, if you are receiving an over the air/cable television signal (most are 720p), you cannot force it to go to 1080p as it will not synchronize. You CAN adjust the aspect ratio on many models in the event that there is picture distortion due to screen size.

A few sets may have progressive scan technology as do some VCRs/DVD players. These sets create extra scan lines on 480i images and upscale them to 720i. This would be a menu setting if available and would only work in the conditions specified by the manufacturer.

Can someone please tell me how to fix my tv

It looks like its the screen fit, adjustments. You know how you can adjust a computer screen?, well it's the same on a flat screen. Find the menu button and move the picture so it fits the screen. Also try adjusting the resolution. It could also be the convergence. Go to settings, menu and find how to adjust the convergence. Ten make sure the little box on the adjustment screen is in the middle of the tv screen. If its not move it there. Hope these tips help.

I seem to have screwed up my picture size. Was trying to get a bigger on-screen picture, but wound up making it small & distorted-looking. What settings should I have set? Thanks!

It would be on the TV remote usually for "pic size/resolution" You can probably find the resolution settings in the picture menu. 4:3, theater wide, etc.

I have HD hooked up to my TV. As of yesterday,

Did you try to reset the picture settings in the menu? Do you have the same problem with other inputs or just the HDMI input?

Invalid format message when trying to use the RGB(PC) port

Honestly, that sounds like one of two things happened. Either the resolution of your computer video card changed or (I'm not sure with your specific TV) the TV's resolution changed.
If through the TV menus you can adjust PC resolution, I would try changing the resolutions. In the LG 47LB5DF TV, press Menu, then go to Picture, then go down to Screen. On the screen menu, you will see Resolution, Position, Size, Phase, and Reset. First try adjusting the Resolution to some of the options you see. If that doesn't work, try to reset the screen settings.
If adjusting those settings on your TV does not help, then you will have to change the resolution through the computer. Try connecting a monitor to the computer. If you get a picture through the monitor, on the desktop right click and select Properties. If using XP go to the setting tab, if using Vista/7, select Display Settings. Lower the resolution to something you think the TV will be able to handle, then connect the PC to the TV again. If you are using an HDMI connection to the TV, you may have to turn off the computer, connect the cable, then turn the computer back on with the TV on the correct input.
If the monitor doesn't show the picture or if you don't have another monitor, you can try adjusting the picture in safe mode, by pressing F8 after you press the power button, before you see the Windows loading screen. Press if multiple times if necessary. You should see a screen that gives you a few startup options. Select Safe Mode. After Windows boots up, you should still see the screen as the resolution would have been reduced. From there try changing your display settings.
Hopefully that info has helped. I noticed that you asked this question 2yrs ago, so I hope you have already figured out how to fix your problem. I simply wished to post this in case it would help you or anyone else had a similar problem. Good luck and take care.
