SOURCE: I have my satallite on hdmi input 1 and my x-box

I have the exact same problem/symptom. I suspect this is a very common problem only folks just now discovering it as we buy new hdmi devices. I called technical support and got the "sorry, out of warranty" talk. Mr Badge #74754 claimed that this was not a known problem. Would love to hear if others having this problem.

SOURCE: HDMI inputs don't work

No, but the HDMI interface is very sensitive to static discharge - has been a storm nearby? To prevent this from happening again i usually install to all my customers cheap splitters just before the tv, they will fry before the tv protecting it.
I'm sorry but it's time to change that board again.

SOURCE: My TV is not showing

Go into your user menu and make sure the inputs are turned on. If they are, check your source and make sure it is working. You can do this buy hooking something else to your set. If you find that it is your set that is the problem, then your main board wil need to be replaced

Only a single "HDMI" appears along with TV, AV input options. Tried turning it on and off and keeping it off for a few hours, but the same issue persists. Please help?


Input selector IC at its main board is faulty. Contact any service technician to replace it. This is not a user repairable one. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Suddenly, all three HDMI Ports won't receive a signal. Help!


Hi James,
The main board of your TV is not accepting HDMI input. You can use another AV input to watch the TV or you have to change the main board.

PJ-TX300 suddenly not detecting HDMI input


I think that its a port issue, if all the other ports are working but hdmi is not then one of the pin on the circuit board may have come loose. I have the same issue. Could try to solder it back on or use a glue gun. let me know if this helps?

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

YOUR TV DOES NOT ALLOW DISPLAY OF THIS PROGRAM THROUGH THE DVI IN


I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....

How do i use it so my tv programming is in surround sound?


if the Comcast cable box has an HDMI output, it should connect directly to one of the TV HDMI inputs. Then connect the LG DVD unit HDMI output to the second HDMI input of the TV. Use two HDMI cables. Do not buy the expensive Monster HDMI cables. If you have already done so, I recommend you take it back for a refund, then buy the low cost HDMI cables which will work just as good and then you can bank the savings toward a new Porsche Boxter!! Now we have the video connected from both the cable box and the LG system.

Now--what do you do if the cable box does not have an HDMI output--just use its component output and your component cable (red, blue and green) to connect to the TV component input. This will still get the video to the TV and good HD pictures. Hum--do you have an HD cable box? You did not say and I just assumed that you did since you got the HDTV. If not, let me know with a follow up question and I will assist in that area further.

Now for the audio connections--The DVD player will not need any connections since it in the LG unit. The sound will come out the speakers when you start playing the DVD. The cable box is where we get the TV audio to feed the LG unit. If the cable box has an optical output, use an optical cable (again the low cost one)and connect to the optical input on the LG.
This will get the TV audio to the surround system. If no optical output, use the red and white (left/right) audio connections and connect to one of the two the LG audio inputs. To hear TV audio on the LG speakers, just switch to that input or the input associated with the optical input.

To watch DVDs, switch the TV to the HDMI input to which you connected the LG unit. For TV, go to the other HDMI input (or component input).
Switch the LG to the audio input to which you connected the cable box to get TV sound.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Unplug power cord- safety first!
open backcover
check powersupply- top center right is p.s.
top left side of powersupply you'll see 5 capacitor 3300uF 10V.
see any pop up on top? replace it All with same rate or 16v is O.K.
do not use temperature rate 75c. Use 105C.
if you know how to solder. you save $300 least!
