    I've checked my manual and the setup menu for my Hitachi 42HDT51 and I do not find anything pertaining to activating this HDMI input.

HOW DO I PLAY A DVD USING Hitachi Flat Panel Television 32HDL51 (ITS CONNECTED THROUGH HDMI CABLE)


Page 18 of the manual, you shouldn't need to do steps 2 or 3.

CONNECTING A COMPONENT SOURCE WITH HDMI or DVI CAPABILITY TO INPUT 1 or INPUT 2
1.Connect the HDMI or DVI to HDMI connection cable from the output of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the HDMI input as shown on the AVC Center below.
2.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT R of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/R) jack.
3.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT L of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/L) jack.
4.Press the INPUTS button, then select INPUTS 1 or 2 to view the program from the HDTV set top box or DVD player. The VIDEO OSD label disappears automatically after approximately four seconds.
5.Select ANT A or B from the INPUTS menu to return to the previous channel.
NOTES:1. Completely insert the connection cord plugs when connecting to rear panel jacks. The picture and sound that is played back will be abnormal if the connection is loose.
2. The HDMI input on INPUT 1 or 2 contains the copy protection system called High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). HDCP is a cryptographic system that encrypts video signals when using HDMI connections to prevent ******* copying of video contents.
3.HDMI is not a "NETWORK" technology. It establishes a one-way point-to-point connection for delivery of uncompressed video to a display.
4.The connected digital output device controls the HDMI interface so proper set-up of device user settings determines final video appearance.

I have a hdmi rca tv, unhooked the digital cable box for awhile went to hook it back up and can't get any channels scanning picks up nothing what should I have the setting set to? Hdmi set to cable


If you have a cable box the channels are selected via the cable box remote and the TV is set to an HDMI video input. The specific input is identified where the HDMI cable connects from the box.

Use the video input remote to select the HDMI for the cable box.

Scanning is for identifing the over the air stations that use the coax input noted as antenna (ANT IN) on the back of the set.

Hope this helps?

With set up box audio in to tv causes high pitch sound


I am assuming this should read 'Set top box'. What kind of cable are you using?

Usually the set top box connects via a SCART lead but yours may be HDMI if it is a very new set top box.

If you are using RCA plugs, you may have cross connected the wrong cables. The RCA cables should be colour-coded. RED and WHITE are for audio, Yellow is for video.

Best advice is to switch it all off, remove all the cables you attached, and start again. The instruction manual/user guide usually has an illustration to help you identify what your set up looks like - there are usually several examples.

If the cables you need did not come with the set top box, you will need to purchase them.

When you are connecting audio leads, you should use the 'audio out' on the set top box and the 'audio in' on your TV set.

It would help to know the EXACT model number of LG screen you have and the make and EXACT model number of the set top box.

Good luck.

No signal stuck on channel 2 with black screen. Model KDL37M3000


Are you connected to a cable or sat box, Are you connected thru antenna input on tv or a/v input. If connect to box thru antenna jack of tv do channel search to pick up ch 3 if box is set to that. If connected to outside antenna still do channel searsh but be sure tv is set to antenna. If connected via av or hdmi the cable or sat box is bad.

Does this input work with a dvd player . If so replace the cable box. If not replace the main board on the tv. Also if this is an older tv that does not support 1080i you may have to connect box to av input and lower the resolution of the hdmi output.

I have lost all my HDMI inputs for my Hitachi L42X01AU, i had my PS3 hooked up and it worked but now when i hook it up none of the HDMI inputs work


try unplugged all units involved---HDMI does not like being hooked or unhooked with units powered and or on.

Wait a while and make the connections and then power set, box, whatever is inline back---the units will try to reboot and that may cure the issue- it is worth trying

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

Well, I won't take the credit of others. Many people have the same problem as you do.
