Re: LG LHT764

The first step is to make sure that all of your speakers are functioning properly and are wired in the correct place. To do this, turn on your TV and receiver, and hit "SETUP" on your remote. Step down and select "Audio" from the list on the left, and select "5.1 Speaker Setup" from the menu on the right. Scroll down to "TEST" and step through each speaker using the right and left arrow keys on your remote, ensuring that each speaker is functioning properly. Exit out of the "SETUP" menu when finished.

Now, when you have a source that you would like to hear on 5.1 channels, but is encoded in 2.1, hit the "SOUND" button on your remote until "PL II MOVIE" or "PL II MUSIC" is displayed on your screen. This stands for Dolby Pro Logic II, and is the way that your receiver multiplexes a 2-channel signal.

My LG LHT764 will play DVD's but that's it. I can't change functions or get any sound out of any of the speakers that cam with it.

Double check the speaker wire connections. Also, change the batteries in the remote. Sounds like a connection problem.

Some dvds play on this system but others skip. I have tried using a laser lens cleaner, but it does not fix the problem. Any suggestions?

Clean the disc. A drop of dish soap, wipe in a circuler motion. Let dry for a minute or two. Wipe fro center out on the disc. Not the player, but the disc is dirty.

I need a replacement motor for part # JQ24-351350F. They don't seem to be available anymore. Any substitutes? I know this motor is bad and is the problem for my LG LHT764 DVD player.

I believe it's the spindle motor for your DVD drive. Try the Mabuchi RF-300EA / FA one's, they're mostly used for the same purpose and could be considered as the equivalent.
