  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    DTV-373-D is the model

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    Correct it does play, even though it acts like it is going and it will not reject the dvd.

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    I want to be able to first get it swithed to component 1 so that I can watch regular tv please. thanks

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    I have already try that. It is only 1 1/2 years old.

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    It does not bring the menu up to change it from dvd/card.

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    Are you still there?

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    It will not let the remote do anything except turn it on and off.

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    I already removed the dvd player

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    If your asking if the dvd plyer is built into the television set-yes

  • nelandardis Jul 22, 2008

    model number, please.

    Could you also describe what do you mean by stop working?

    No power

    Does not read DVDs

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    Try to unplug it for some time, say 5 minutes and plug it back in.

    If you have the remote control press TV and change from component 1 to another video source.

    How old is your TV?

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    If you've tried everything and nothing seem to work, I would suggest to open the back cover of your LCD and slowly remove it to get access to where the DVD player mechanism and circuitry is and you should be able to remove the DVD manually.

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    Did you press Input using your remote to change it to regular TV?

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    Try to remove the DVD slowly and gentle to make sure nothing breaks inside the circuitry or mechanism.

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    Did you have a DVD inside the LCD?

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    I understood that the LCD has a built in DVD.

    If the LCD only turns ON and OFF and not other function works. Is there a way you can connect any cables to you component 1 and see if you get some video?

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    Can you use the cables you have now and connect them to the red, blue and green from your other DVD to the ones on the LCD and see if that works.

    Make sure you match the colors.

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    Connect the Y (yellow), Pb (white) and Pr (red) from your DVD and follow the same order when you connect them to the LCD.

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 22, 2008

    Do you have Green, Blue and Red outputs from your other DVD player?

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 24, 2008

    Where you able to get something going with your LCD?

Component to HDMI Converter Problem

Does the TV have a plug connection I think is called DVI. There is a DVI to HDMI adapter that also needs an audio connection on TV to work. Other option is audio and video rca cables. You may also need to change input connection to correct source, as it may not be auto for connection

Not sure what you mean. The TV comes on and is always showing the DVD instead of TV channels? If that is the case, you need to change the TV input from what the DVD player is using. (for example component or Video 1, or HDMI 1 to whatever the TV is using for television provider's input. (for example HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 or component, or video 1, or video 2.) Usually the remote will have a button that says "input". If you push it, it will scroll through the various inputs. You may need to wait a few seconds between each choice for the change to happen.)

You can look at the cable from your DVD player to the TV and see if the inputs on the TV are labeled, and also look at the cable into the TV from the television provider (comcast, dishnetwork, or TV antenna) to see what input that is as well.

Just installed my new 32le5300. Cant switch to dvd player. manual won't play on my imac. Can you help?

The manual is available as a PDF here: . Click on Support and then the Televisions Manual on the right. Just above is a link to Adobe Reader if you need the program.

LG doesn't always support Mac systems but that shouldn't change the manual access if you have a working optical drive. If you have Adobe Reader, then the problem might be that the disc won't autoplay. Try manually accessing the contents of the optical drive. (Open the File explorer and then the optical drive.)

Next: is your DVD player a stand-alone device or is it part of the computer? How have you connected the TV and the DVD player? The model number would help. Generally, you need to change the source for the TV to match where the DVD player's cables are going into the TV. There is a button for this on the TV's remote (and on the TV, just left of the power button) - labeled Input. The DVD player should be off when the TV is turned on and then set to this source. (The TV can get confused otherwise.)

The HDMI and HDMI2 ports should work with a PC connection (1920x1080 with the input label set to PC for the TV if you change the label for the HDMI ports). The entire list of inputs should be TV, HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3, PC (VGA), AV in 1, Component in 1, AV in 2, Component in 2, HDMI4.

I hope this helps.

I got a remote control with my star choice satellite dish 4 years ago. It suddenly stopped working for the satellite receiver? I only have the receiver and a dvd player and the tv so its not like ive got...

Do you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? If so try i-Got-Control and the IRB1 attachment. It has codes for the Star Choice built in and if you need others, you can always learn from the other remote you have. This will put all the remotes (including your TV and DVD player) into the same iPhone (or other iOS device).

How do I change my remote for TV to Input Video 1?

There should be a button on your remote denoting "Input." If you connect the DVD player to the TV on "video input 1" then push the input button on the remote or TV itself until the DVD appears on your TV (which will be Video 1). Some TVs must have the component (in your case) the "DVD" player connected to the TV before the TV will recognize it. Make sure the DVD is powered up and then push the input button until the DVD player appears on the TV. Depending on your TV inputs, there may be multiple inputs like, Video, Component, DVI, or HDMI. The above are listed in the respective order of "quality." HDMI being the best. Whatever input you hook the DVD player up to on the TV will be the "input" you will look for when pressing the input button. Hope this helps.

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

If you don't have one, the manual is available online:


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.

DVD is wired to the VCR and does not work

The Sony Bravia should have a number of component inputs, so you should be able to hook up the DVD directly to the TV. The only reason for hooking it up through the VCR would be to record a DVD on VHS... but that's for the birds--VHS is old technology.

Each component input on the back of the TV has a number. You then select to view the component you want by pressing the remote control button to change the display (it should show with one you're on... e.g., Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc.).

Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
