Question about LG 50PX4DR 50 in. Plasma TV

1 Answer

Only HDMI2 input works

Can you help please? I am afraid I have a dud but the picture is great. I tried HDMI 1 for the satellite and no signal message - tried HDMI 2 and worked great. Changed the TV Input between the two and still only HDMI 2 worked. I tried the DVD hookup for Component 1 and 2 using the multi colored cables and also get the no input message. I even had the DirectTV guy take a look and he said it should be no problem. Thanks if you have any advice. I just have the TV 4 days but would rather not take it back.

Try attaching all the sources you have to hookup, have the power on , on each unit and then go into tv menu and run auto program. if this is no help your tv may just need a firmware/software upgrade, I don't know if they give the download to the consumer or not but if the auto programming doesn't work call LG @ 800-243-0000 tell them your problem, 4 days old really don't recomend having extensive service work but it is under factyory warr. so you have the option but if they think it's the firmware upgrade and you have a usb flash drive they may send you an email with the software.

Sony KDL-40NX711 HDMI PORTS STOPPED WORKING. EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS FINE. WHAT WOULD CAUSE THIS TO HAPPEN?


Sounds like everything works. Your remote has an input menu. Have you cycled it around to the right component? i.e. HDMI1 or HDMI2, or DVD, even PC?
If not, try that.

How do i get the TV to play satellite? it just says weak signal when I turn the tv on. JVC RM-C18G


It has to be on the right channel. If you are supposed to be on channel 3, 61, 73, 113 (ask the satellite company which one you should be on) then you'll have to change the channel. If you are not supposed to be on a channel you have to find out which input you're supposed to be on (video 1, video 2, video 3, av 1, av 2, av 3, hdmi 1, hdmi 2, input 1, input 2, input 3 for example).

We have a Polaroid 4241-TLXB television. This evening we turned on the TV and the Video6 (HDMI1) is not accepting sound. The picture is fine when that input is selected. We had our STB attached to HDMI1...


I am having a somewhat similar experience. The HDMI 2 is a little flaky on these TVs, try turning the input device that is attached to HDMI 1 OFF then reboot the TV. For some reason, if there is a signal going to both HDMI inputs at the same time there are major problems. I also found that if I input L/R audio into the HDMI 2 analog jacks, that sound also goes to HDMI 1(if no digital sound signal is going there).

The message: input: hdmi Front keeps showing up in the upper right hand corner of the tv.


Try selecting your input one at a time. What happened is you choose the hdmi as your input but at the back of the tv you connected your input wires (to maybe hdmi2 or input 1 or input 2, etc. Good luck.

I have a 37" Insignia L37Q tv with 4 HDMI inputs. Only HDMI 1 works properly. If I hook up an HDMI device to any of the other HDMI ports I get one of the following: 1. No signal 2. Not supported 3....


Try plugging hdmi cable into hdmi 1 on your TV, then open the menu on TV and find the place it lets you to make selections on this, such as Satellite or hdmi 1. One of these selections have to work.
---------
does the hdmi port gets detected when you try in other hdmi ports.if not getting detected then it can also be fault in the hdmi ports.because as you said that hdmi port number 1 works.that means wires are proper.but other hdmi ports not working that means the ports are faulty if all the setting are proper in setup.
as the ports are soldered to the unit internally.if the soldering gets loose the connection will not get complete.so re-soldering is required to the loose ports.

if you are not familiar with doing this you can get it done by local repair technician familiar with this model .
-----------
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

Receiving "Unlock" message and "Not Used" on my reciever


The HDMI inputs are pass through inputs only. The reciever cannot recieve any sound signals through the HDMI's. The reciever acts as a selector switch for the HDMI inputs. Whatever input you have selected on the reciever is the one that is being sent through the output to your TV. The "unlock" display shows when there is no sound signal sent to the reciever. There is no code to unlock. This is the reciever's way of telling you that there is no sound being sent to it from that input. Since there is no sound being processed from the HDMI's, you need to hook up an additional audio cable from the device to the reciever (preferrably an optical cable). When the reciever recieves an audio signal, it will then "unlock" and you will get sound. The only purpose for the HDMI jacks on this reciever is to give you a bonus HDMI jack so you only have to use one on your TV. I know it is confusing. I had to look into this problem myself, so I'm happy to help. Higher end recievers will actually recieve and process sound signals from the HDMI's.

No picture on hdmi2


First of all connect the Direct TV box to HDMI 2 and see if it works there. If it does then the next step is to connect the DVD player to HDMI and see if it wors there. If not then connect the DVD player to the TV using the component inputs and if the DVD player works on those. If it does then maybe the HDMI interface in the DVD player no longer works as it needs to communicate with the TV.
