Question about LG 42LB5D 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Audio cuts out

I have a Panasonic Blu Ray player, and I love it! It's connected to our LG 42LB5D 42 in LCD tv via the HDMI cable. Anywhere between 10 - 30 minutes will go by and the screen will flicker for about a half a second and the audio will cut out. If I turn up the Volume control for the TV the audio comes back. I've seen that others have had problems. Any ideas?

Also as a side note: when I turn up the volume after the audio has cut out, it only brings the audio back for the internal tv speakers. My Home theatre system doesn't kick back in until I turn the TV off and back on again.

HDMI is not a universal standard. Some units will not talk back and forth correctly and can cause lock ups, loss of audio or loss of picture. Try switching to component inputs and see if it works better. Check your owners manual but I believe the component inputs will also accept 1080P as long as the Panasonic Blu Ray can output 1080P. Don't believe what the Salesman said if he told you that you have to use HDMI or you won't get HD.

Can't get any sound when playing discs through a blu ray player connected via a hdmi cable and DVI adapter.


The DVI adapter stops the audio. Use the audio out ports on the bluray player to connect an audio pair cable to the tv.

HDMI audio cutting out


Sometimes it might be the TV, sometimes it might be that HDMI cable having issues with that certain TV. Your best bet would be to get another HDMI cable and see if that helps.

I have a LG LCD TV 26LX2R and I recently bought a Sony Blu-Ray BCP-S580. If i connect them via Composite or Component cables i get ok video and audio. But when i connect them via HDMI i get excellent image...


I can't speak on whether or not the apple tv has such a setting but the Bluray players does. You go into the bluray player's settings and change the audio output.Your choices should be 2 ch possibly hdmi, bitstream, pcm, and auto. Try hdmi, 2 ch, and pcm because if you have it on auto you might not get sound via an hdmi cable and it's probably not bitstream but try bitstream if none of the others work.

I have a Sampo 42 inch plasma multimedia display monitor model PME-42S6 (s). I got a blu-ray player and connected it via the AV1 inout. The screen is now green and red. What can I do to fix this?


If you have a Blu-Ray player you should be connecting it via HDMI, which is the only way to receive a full HDMI picture on your television. But you may connect it via the component inputs if you do not have an HDMI cord. The component cable consists of five color coded cords of (1) red and (1) white cable for the audio, and (1) blue, (1) green, and (1) red cable for the picture. Connect the Blu-Ray using this cable and you will be fine.

When i try to play a Blue Ray DVD, the LG LCD tv gets a swath of bright green random pixels across the middle of the screen. The player is connected by an HDMI cable. I have replaced the cable twice,...


Pickled! You did right by checking the cables, the tv inputs and as well the output on the blue ray...even by replacing the blue ray. Which leads to a problem within the tv monitor. I can only guess there is something in the software of the tv that is causing the problem. I can only suggest two options. If can connect the tv to a network via CAT5 cable, you can do a frimware update to the tv. Sort of like a software update. If it is not available, try to swap the HDMI cable for the 5 RCA component video. It will still carry HD signal, just not as crisp as the HDMI. I would be floored if the same thing happened with the component cable.

Invalid format error with P1600 blu-ray and LG LCD TV 42"


It may be a firmware issue if hdmi works with other items such as playstation.
If no hdmi the main Pcb hdmi ports are bad and the main Pcb would have to be replaced.

Consumers cannot upgrade the firmware so a shop would be the only option.

42LG50 TV - Intermittant sound problems with blu-ray HDMI input


You say this doesn't happen on regular cable or when playing a regular DVD. Hmm. Is this Blu-Ray player connected by simplink? HDMI is a bi-directional format cable, so  there are cases in setups where your tv can send commands to your blu-ray player and vice versa. It could be a problem with your blu-ray player that it is sending for some odd reason a mute command to your tv. Or is processing a command that your TV interprets to be a mute command when playing blu-rays. Because if it was the TV itself chances are you'd see this when watching a normal DVD or on cable as well. Since you say you're not, it leads me to believe the issue lies with the blu-ray player itself.

Can not get my new 42 " Aquos TV to work with my new blue ray DVD


A blu ray player will play on any television. The television might not however have the highest resolution to display the full capability of a blue ray. That being said, the blu ray player may be faulty the connections may be incorrect. I would recommend running an HDMI cable from the A/V out on the blu ray to the HDMI input on the TV. GOod Luck
