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.

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.

Player turns on ok,display shows menu that disc is playing but tv says there is no signal, not seeing home screen with net flixs or the other apps.player has been working great we used it 2 day earlier...


The "handshake" between the television and the blu ray player has been lost. This happens a lot when connecting with hdmi. Sometimes a hot swap will work to remedy this. That is turning off and unplugging both your television and bluray player while removing the hdmi cable from both for 30 seconds to one minute. Reconnect the bluray player to the hdmi cable and then to the television. Plug them both back in and turn the television on first then the bluray player. Your television may need a factory reset going into the service menu or the board the hdmi ports are located on might need to be replaced if all of the hdmi ports are not responding. You can connect with component if possible in the meantime.

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.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Hookup diagram for Yamaha avr-863 receiver


It's the other way around.

Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.

you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA

And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables

I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.

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.
