Question about LG RC897T DVD Recorder/VCR Combo

1 Answer

I can not select input source, even though AV1 is connected. Pressing INPUT button has no effect. All I can see is ''Not connected to the camcorder'', which is true - but I want to record from AV1.

How do I get the TV to show some sign that it is on


could you possibly maybe changed the input(source) selection to that of an unused device , If so most modern tvs will turn themselves off after a few minutes of receiving no input from a disconnected input , some common source selections that come to mind are ( AV1,AV2 , Hdmi1, hdmi2, DvD , and antenna) your tv might have different names but im sure it's got a source selection

How do i change the input


The 27" TV uses the same instructions as the 20", and I found the manual for you at the link below. Answering your question directly, here is the section of the instructions about changing input:
-----
Changing the TV's Input Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, if you've connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR & DVD) using the Video/Audio input,you will want to be able to view the signal from the component.To do this, you will need to switch from the ' TV ' input to the 'AV1-AV3, CVI' Input, as follows. 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then " Set-Up " menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHV buttons to select " Input ". 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change the input source from ' TV ' to 'AV1, AV2, AV3, CVI'. 4 Wait 20 seconds, or press DISPLAY button or MENU button to return to normal TV viewing. * CVI means the Component Video Input (Y/ PB/ PR) from the DVD player etc.* Users can also select these input modes with the TV/AV button or the INPUT button on theremote controller. * On the AV1 mode , if you connect the S-VHS jack to your TV, "AV1" is changed to "S-VIDEO".

I turn on the cable and power button then the TV and poweer on and only balck screen and AV appears in the right hand corner. Can't get my TV to wrok. Yet the one in the living room works


Make sure that the source input is set correctly. You can select the different "source inputs" using your TV remote. For example, if the cables from the cable box going to your TV are going into AV1 port on your TV then you need to select AV1 as the "source input" on your TV settings. This works the same with HDMI1, HDMI2, ect.

I clicked a button by accident last night and now my Vizio tv reads no signal and a small display in the top right corner reads AV. How can I get my tv to read cable signals again??


What input is the cable connected to? (Coax antenna In, component video, composite video)

Look on the remote or the TV itself for a button marked Source or Input. Press this. For some TVs, use the up/down arrows to select the input to which your cable is connected. (TV = coax) On other models, you may need to press the Source button several times to advance between inputs. (I'm assuming you have a remote that works for this feature on the TV; otherwise, use the TV button.)

I hope this helps.

No plug ins work other than what is in jack 1 why?


Try using the "source" or "input" button on your tv or remote control. That will cycle through any ports that are being used (hdmi, component, rca, etc)
Hope this helps!

Trouble trying to connect my dvd player and set it up to my new 42 " L cd lost instructions!


Hi there,
You will need to determine if your DVD player is HDMI or Scart. If you connect it via a scart lead, then it should automatically turn on when you power it up, if not it will be located on your tv under the appropriate source/input label, ie AV1/AV2, or SCART.
If you are using a HDMI lead, then you will have to turn it over yourself, as HDMI does not support switching control. To do this, locate the input button on your remote (sometimes labled source) and press it until you can select the correct HDMI input using either the directional buttons, or by repeatedly pressing the input button.
Hope this helps

How do u turn to scart channel without a remote


Not knowing what model of TV you have, the most common ways are either by using the Source button then scroll to AV1 input or if you have a Menu button there may be a sub-menu for Input, again select AV1 (depending on which AV connector you are linked you maight have to select AV2). If you have a DVD or VCR connected to the AV source, then when pressing play the DVD/Tape should automatically switch over to AV.

Model 60PL9200D/37 no sound


What device is connected to TV: cable, sat box, dvd player? What type of cable are you using to connect to the accessory device?

For a red, white, and yellow cable:
I cannot hear sound from the television when connecting to the AV1 input. What do I need to do?
Answer When you connect the accessory device to the AV1 input of the TV using either component video cables (YPbPr) or composite video cable (Yellow), you must connect the audio output from the accessory device to the 'INPUT AV1 AUDIO L R' of the TV using the RCA audio cables (Red and White).
If the connection is good,

Check to ensure that the AV1 audio source from the TV on-screen menu is selected to AV1.
  1. Press the 'MENU' button on the remote control.
  2. Press the cursor up/down to select SETUP and press the cursor right.
  3. Press the cursor up/down to select SOURCE and press the cursor right.
  4. Press the cursor up/down to select ANALOG AUDIO IN and press the cursor right.
  5. Press the cursor up/down to select AV1 and press the 'OK' button.
  6. Press the 'MENU' button to exit the menu.
Make sure that the volume on the TV and on the device is set at an audible level and also that the sound hasn't been muted.

For HDMI,
The picture quality is good but the TV does not produce any sound when connected to an accessory device with an HDMI to HDMI cable.

Answer
  • The TV's behavior is considered to be normal as some accessory devices have an HDMI audio output setting that requires to be turned on when using an HDMI to HDMI connection.
  • Check the on-screen menu of the accessory device to ensure that the HDMI audio output is set to ON.
  • In some cases, you may need to set the digital out audio stream of the accessory device to PCM.
  • For detailed information, please refer to the user manual of the accessory device.

Hooking up to digital cable box


Darth,
There are 2 ways you can accomplish this.First is the least quality which is via coax.What you want to do is connect the cable service coming from the wall to the input on your cable box.Then the TV output on the cable box goes to the input on your surround sound then the coax goes from the surround sound to the coax input on the TV.The second is to Connect using the RCA AV1 input.what you want to do is look at the back of the digital cable box and locate the OUTPUTS for the RCA jacks(or AV output)connect RCA cables (yellow red white) to the 1st INPUT on your surround sound.depending on models you should have a couple of different INPUTS for a signal.Choose one and plug it in.After that take a second pair of RCA cables and connect them to video OUTPUT on the surround sound and connect them to your AV1 OUTPUT on your TV.With the original remote for your TV,NOT the cable universal one,Look for an INPUT button on the remote.Some are called input some are called SOURCE,TV/VIDEO basically it tells the TV what signal source to look at on the back of the TV.If you dont have the remote put the TV on channel 3 then press the channel down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 press it again and it should start cycling through the AV inputs,choose AV1.


Once you have done this you have correctly
hooked everything up,BUT Like I said depending on the model of surround sound you are going to have to CHOOSE or physically select or "tell" the surround sound receiver which input to RECEIVE the sound through.In general the INPUT on the back of the surround sound will be labeled with something like Video IN,VCR IN, DVD IN and so forth.Make sure the surround sound is selected to Receive the sound coming from the digital box.Sometimes there is a dial on the front of the surround sound that allows you to select which INPUT on on the back becomes active .make sure that what you have selected matches what you have your cable box is connected to.Hope this helps!

YES check your connections and make sure you have selected the right INPUT signal source on your surround sound just remember RCA cables (yellow red white) goes from digital box,CABLE or SATELLITE OUTput to surround INput from there connect another RCA cable from the OUTPUT of the surround sound to the AV1 Input on the TV make sure AV1 is selected on the TV,if you dont know how just put the TV on channel 3 then press the channels down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 the next channel down from that should be AV1.Also make sure you have selected the right INPUT for the surround sound.

If you are not using RCA jack and just coax follow or you dont have a digital box.Connect the cable from the wall to the INput
on the surround sound the the cable OUT to the tv make sure the surround sound is Looking for a signal from the coax.
