Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

I have Direct TV and so I keep my input button set on HDMI. However, when the tv has been off for awhile it defaults back to the tv setting. I use the t.v. as an alarm clock and so it comes on with snow on the screen and that's not how I like to wake up! I know that nobody is touching the remote. What causes this and how can I fix it?

Maybe you can choose what setting it should be when the alarm comes one if the menu have features so you can change the channel to what you want the alarm to come on. The reason why it does not stay on HDMI is because the alarm changes it back to whatever channel the alarm is set on.

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?

It will not automatic default to hdmi when powered on, and the only thing connected is the hdmi, but i must select it how do i default the tv to hdmi


There is a button on your remote control to change the input method. You press the button to change it. Examples of input choices are AUX, Antenna 1 & 2, cable, tv, hdmi. Keep pressing the input button until you see a picture or find the HDMI choice. That should solve your problem.

How do i hook up my ps3 with tv through hdmi as it keeps goin to blue screen


  1. Connect the PS3 standard composite video connector (yellow RCA plug) to the TV composite input and switch the TV to that input. Leave the HDMI cable connected.
  2. Make sure the PS3 is off. Turn it on and hold the power button until you get two beeps (at least 5 seconds). The PS3 navigation screen should be shown on the TV. If not, switch the TV back to HDMI; the screen should be displayed at 480i resolution.
  3. Go to the settings menu. Select Display Settings, then Video Output Settings, then press the X button on your controller.
  4. The on-screen instruction should be "Select the type of input on your TV." Select HDMI, then press the '> (solid right triangle) button on your controller.
  5. You will be offered the choice of Automatic or Custom settings. Try Automatic first (if there is a problem at the end, start over and pick Custom the second time).
  6. Press the X button. You will get a screen asking you to confirm the changes. Press the X button again to confirm.
  7. You may get a screen asking for the resolution setting. IMPORTANT: if your TV's maximum resolution is 720p or lower, do not pick a higher resolution. The TV may not display properly or may not display at all (blue screen). Pick the highest resolution your TV can display.
  8. Confirm this by selecting "Yes" and pressing the X button.
  9. The settings list should now read Connector Type HDMI; Resolution Standard (NTSC); 480p; 720p; 1080p (if applicable). Press the X button to confirm.
  10. You may be offered a choice of audio outputs; you can use HDMI or something else, depending on your setup. Confirm the setting and press X one more time.

At this point, the PS3 should send its signal to the HDMI port following restart. If your TV has more than one HDMI input, make sure you select the one connected to the PS3.

How do I set up my Panasonic Viera to connect via HDMI to my Direct TV receiver?


Cliff, it al depends on what kind of DIRECT TV receiver you have, if it has an HDMI port on the back of the receiver then all you have to do is plug it in and change the input on your TV to HDMI

Enjoy thats a great TV

My 50 inch panasonic viera tv seems like it is stuck in 480, my hd direct tv and blue ray will not work, but my wi will. can you help


This set will do 1080P. If your external devices are set properly the set should automatically switch to there mode. Try chaning which inputs you are using, trying one device at a time. Use HDMI for you Blu-Ray and either HDMI or component for your Direct TV. Chek your setting for putput on both of these to make sure of your highest quality video. 1080P on the Blu-Ray 720P on the Direct( yes 720p is higher than 1080i).
If this does not reslove try doing a reset on youset.
Press and hold volume down on your TV and the menu button on the remote. The set runs a self check then displays the results. when finished unplug the set for about 30 seconds. when you plug the set back in and turn it on it will come up in the original set up mode. youe will have to reprogram your input setting channel scan ect. so try the other things first. I hope this helps.

Have hooked up HP Pavivillion PC with HDMI cable; get no audio, picture is fine. How do I get the audio to the TV??The TV is a new Insignia NS-L37Q-10A.


Plug in the HDMI to the TV and set the TV to HDMI input. Go to the Vista Contol panel on the PC, to Hardware & Sounds, then Sound.

The control panel will show the computer speakers as the default hardware. Highlight the HDMI icon, click the Default button! That's it: obvious when I realized "default" was not "return to default settings", but setting the default device. Duh... always simple once you see it.
Thanks, Rick Russell

Hello, how do i change the setting to hdmi on my tv? thanks :)


When your HDMI cable already hooked up to TV via HDMI input, press button SOURCE on the remote control. You must see all the inputs there. If you don't see, keep rolling down the arrow button. You will see it. When it got highlighted, press Enter, your TV will switch to HDMI inputs automatically.

Not an expert on this model but generally if you switch the TV on by pressing the remote's power button it will come back using the input you previously used. If you press a channel button it will come back to DTV.

Denon AVR-488 , problems routing cable box through receiver to tv


If you don't have one, the manual is available online: http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/AVR-488-OM-E_101.pdf

Suggestions:

1. Reset to default values. Per page 36 of manual: 1. Turn off Power. 2. Press Power while simultaneously pressing Speaker A and Speaker B. 3. Once the display starts flashing at intervals of about 1 second, release the two buttons.

2. Make sure you have AM or FM radio reception. This makes sure your speakers, amps, etc are connected and working correctly.

3. Connect DVD player to HDMI 1 in and TV to HDMI Monitor Out.
Play a known good DVD that works when you connected the DVD directly to the TV via HDMI.

Select the DVD/HDP input on the receiver and play the DVD. You should not have to perform any input assignments, etc. It should just work, as HDMI1 is the default system setting for DVD.

4. If possible, obtain a STB with HDMI out & repeat step 3 using the HDMI2 TV/CBL input. Keeping the signal path all digital (HDMI) will give you a better picture quality than forcing several analog to digital conversions (component video is analog).

4A. To use the component connection, first test by connecting the STB directly to the TV via component video/audio if possible. This tests that the component video output of the STB is working correctly.

Next, remove direct connection and connect via receiver. Connect STB to receiver as shown on page 13 in manual. Connect component video output from STB to component video input #2 (tv/cbl) on receiver. Connect the STB audio output to the corresponding tv/cbl audio inputs.

Make sure nothing is connected to the HDMI2 input or to any other TV/CBL inputs (composite video, s-video, digital coax audio).

Now select the TV/CBL input and turn on the STB. You should have both audio & video.
