LG 32LX2R TV - AV2 in B&W

I have an LG 32LX2R TV and for some reason whenever I plug in the Playstation (2 or 3) it plays in B&W.

It used to be fine but now it seems to not be tuned in correctly. The PS work fine on my other small TV so I know it isnt the cables etc.

I have checked all settings via the menu system but nothing changes.

Is the a factory reset so I can reset to normal settings again?

Please assist urgently as I have my nephew over for the day and we cannot play on the Playstation like this at it is raining outside :-(

Please help!

    Thanks for the reply but I don't believe this is a PS3 issue, it happens on my PS2 aswell.

    The PS3 is my Nephews and it works fine on his tv.

    It is the TV that needs resetting.

    I managed to get the SYSTEM menu up on the TV but am not sure what to reset. This is very frustrating as we cannot play on the PS at all really as it is B&W.

    You can go into the LG installer menu. But be warned Tread carefully in what you change as I dont want you to brick your telly.

    When the Tv is on, Hold down the Menu button for Min of 5 seconds. then type the following code 1105 This will bring up an LG hidden menu. you could look in there is your wanting to reset to Factory Settings.

    Hope this Helps

TV will not play blu ray (a LG blu ray player). Only LG logo comes up then black screen.

You have to use LG tv remote and press input.
Choose the option your blu-ray player is plugged into.
Any option that is not grayed out has something plugged into it.

ie., our cabel is componet2, our old vcr AV2, our dvd is HDMI3

We have an LG 32LX2R-ZE. We have no sound, but the picture (Virgin Cable) connection is fine as is our Internet. I've checked all the leads and, no, neither the TV or the Virgin box are on mute!. Any...

I had the same problem and after buying loads of different cables came to the conclusion that the HDMI input on the TV was at fault. Bit of a sledgehammer to crack a nut but I upgraded my home cinema amp to one that had HDMI in/out and now I put the sound through that and use the TV as a panel with volume turned to zero.

Use of AV2 input sound socketsto play ipod

The sound is muted unless a video signal is detected on this TV. The only work around would be to connect the camcorder or some other active video to tha input but using the IPOD for the audio.
