Keep getting no signal on 32 in lg


Start at the beginning:

Hook a DVD to one of the rear sets of audio/video jacks--go to that input and verify it works.

If so, hook the direct TV to another rear input and select that---if no picture that way---the box may be the issue or wrong hookup--composite to composite or component to component (most likely).

If the set works with DVD and not DIRECT TV it is not smart enough to know what is hooked to it.

In that case a setting or the connection out from the box is the problem---check on screen menu for the box in setup.

Box may need to be rebooted with it connected to set or wrong hookup of cables.

I beleive you have to enable audio in the HDMI SETUP so it will send the digital audio through HDMI ports, check the cable box and the TV HDMI sound setup.

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.

Bad picture


  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

LC32OEM9 says Not Supported Format on HDMI Input. It worked when we first hooked up the TV. Then it started working sporadically now it very very rarely works and when it does it only works for maybe 15...


I'm thinking the Comcast DVR box maybe putting out weird HDMI signals and the TV can't translate it. I would call the Comcast people on this one.
In the meantime, I would try finding another source the uses a HDMI cable to rule out the TV as the problem. Basically, testing the TV to see if the problem still happens when you use something else than the Comcast box. Try a Blueray player, Playstation 3, or Xbox. Just something that uses a HDMI cable.

No picture in HDMI


After reading tips on this site I did a manual reboot of my cable box. Sure enough, that had been the problem. I'm going to keep a watch on it from now on; if it happens again, I'll call for a new DVR/cable box. Thanks for all the info on this site!

Says no signal when switched to hdmi when there is one.


Have the same problem with a 532H - but here is what I did to resolve the issue:
1) Click your Menu button on the TV remote.
2) Go to Screen (click the right button)
3) Go to Main Picture Source (click the right button)
4) Select HDMI (click the Menu button when done)

Westinghouse ltv 32w4 hdc 32.02 in. hdtv lcd tv / dvd combo


My 42" Westinghouse HDMI inputs just stopped working. I thought it was the TW Explorer 4250HDC issue so I got a new one from TW. Still said no signal from HDMI. So, I shut the TV down and pulled the power cord out of the back. I waited a few seconds and reconnected the pwr cord. The TV "re-booted" so to say and now the HDMI inputs work. I think TVTEK has the right idea that it is firmware/software related. In the mean time, you might want to give that a try.
