Question about LG 42LH30 42 in. LCD TV

"No signal" sign on TV screen using HDMI selector

I hooked up a HDMI selector (brand: iCon 3 input 1 TV out intelligent with remote). I have a HD cable box (HDMI 1), a sony B-Ray (HDMI 2) and a LG 42LH30 (TV out). When I start the cable box everything works fine but when I switch to the B-Ray (cablebox is turned off), I have a B-Ray image for 5 to 10 seconds then, I have a "no signal" sign on the TV. I tried switching cables/ports, same problem occurs. So, I need a second opinion, is it really the HDMI selector or, I may have a problem with my HDMI ports on the TV. You have to know that, on some occasion (rarely), I do have "no signal" sign on the TV when turning on the cable box or by switching from component to HDMI without turning off the TV.

It sounds like a refresh issue, double check you selector and make sure it fits the refresh of the tv. i had this once with a sharp where the tv was 120hz and the selector was 60 and it created a no signal and when it did come in it was jumpy. if you have a 120 tv then selector should be the same.

I have a Model D12-100 flat-screen TV, hooked up to DirecTV. I have lost my TV remote and have lost the signal for DirecTV. How do I get the signal to the HDM1 or HDM2 category without the TV remote?


First off, D12-100 is your direct TV Box, Not your TV. A D-12 -100 direct tv box is not an HD box and will only connect to your tv via a coaxial cable or av jacks (red, white, yellow).
If you have lost your remote for your tv and your direct tv remote does not operate it, then you should be able to find the manual buttons on your television somewhere along the edge of the screen.
Toggle inputs till your on "TV" then use the channel selection to toggle it up or down till it's on channel 3 or 4 for Direct tv, If that doesn't work toggle inputs again and try the AV inputs. And of course if you want to use another device toggle inputs to HDMI 1 or 2.

Why is tv saying no signal?


Connect a known working DVD player by using a new HDMI cable to HDMI INPUT 1 and check for signal.
If you have a DISH or CABLE system box, connect that also with a new HDMI cable to HDMI input 2 or 3 and recheck for signal. Your T V remote will have an input selector to change between the different inputs on your
T V.

      Check the back of your Sharp TV for the HDMI input. These will be long, thin rectangular jacks labeled "HDMI." Most Sharp TVs will include another label on those jacks with an input number ("Input 5," "Input 6" or the like). Remember that number. It will have a bearing when you turn on the TV.

    • 2
      Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the input jack on the Sharp TV and the other end to a compatible component such as an HD DVR from your cable/satellite company or a Blu-Ray disc player. The TV won't broadcast in HD if you can't connect these devices with an HDMI cable (though it will still broadcast in standard definition using RCA cables or S-video cables).

      Turn on the TV and the requisite component (Blu-Ray, DVR).

    • 4
      Press the "Input" button on your remote. A list of signal sources will appear on your screen ("Input 1," Input 2," etc.). Use the cursor to maneuver down to the input number corresponding to the HDMI outlet you just hooked up and press the "Input" button again.

    • 5
      Press the "Menu" button and maneuver the cursor to select "Option." Go to "HDMI Setup" and press "Enter." Move the cursor up or down to the desired item and hit "Enter" again. Then move the cursor from side-to-side to select the proper setting. Hit "Enable" to allow the Sharp TV to automatically recognize the HDMI signal and "Digital" to get the proper audio signal from the HDMI cable. Then hit "Enter" again.

      Exit the menu and watch TV as normal.

How do i hook it up to my computer without a remote


"How do I hook up my computer without a remote?"

Two possibilities come to mind:

1. With a VGA (15 pin), HDMI, or DVI connected computer there should be a keyboard key combination (typically a Function button (Fn ) and one of the F1 thru F12 keys) that will activate the option for switching the video signal to the external monitor/TV, or in the case of a laptop, viewing the image on both screens. The TV's "INPUT" button, if there is one, will need to be pushed several times to cycle through the available input signals until the computer video signal input is seen.

2, Alternately, if there is no "INPUT" button, it may be possible to purchase an inexpensive universal remote (ones seen even at a local $1 Store) in able to access the TV menu. The remote will have programming instructions and codes for most major TV brands, and an Internet search, or the TV manufacturer, should provide for additional codes for your specific TV model if necessary.

Kindly post a reply if either of these options do work for you.

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.

How to Hook Up a Receiver to an HDTV

Though it utilizes the most sophisticated technology on the plant, an HDTV is extremely easy to hook up to a receiver. Home entertainment systems are designed for compatibility, whether it is a cable or satellite receiver, a DVD player or a stereo sound system.


Instructions

things you'll need:

* HD television
* HD satellite or cable receiver
* DVD player
* Stereo receiver
* AV cables
* Cable connector
* HDMI cables


Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar).

Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV.


Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row.


Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV.


Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will).


Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal.

Tips & Warnings

*

Not everything that can be hooked up to an HDTV is capable of playing in high definition. The signal needs to be HD as well, which means that only HD broadcasts, HD DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs can play in full high definition (though "upgrade" DVD players will allow normal DVDs to play at an enhanced picture). You can still hook receivers up to an HDTV, and it will still play broadcasts from them as clearly as the signal permits.

I would like to know if I can connect a HDMI cable from My tv model WS-65315 to a Direct TV HD receiver?


NO> If your TV supports and have HDMI connections and your HD receiver has an HDMI output then you should have no problem displaying Video. Just make sure you change the input signal of your television to HDMI input. After looking at the spec's of this model these are the following inputs you have. your best picture quaity would be to use componet cables instead, which can show full screen 1080i format, your television does not show at 1080p whis is what HDMI is known for.
Connectors
Rear Input Connectors S-Video x 2 - Component x 3 - Composite x 2 - DVI x 1 - RF x 2 - 1 x RS-232C - Audio (RCA) x 6

Front Input Connectors S-Video x 1 - Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1

Rear Output Connectors Composite x 1 - Audio (RCA) x 1 - RF x 1

Another good option is use to use a DVI to HMDI connector and hook it up this way. But note: you will have to use audio cables for the DVI input.
