Question about LG 52SX4D 52" HDTV

2 Answers

Green picture My TV powers up and I can actually watch TV, DVD, or via any input, but my picture is green. It's not cable related as this happens with nothing conencted and in the menu. So far I looked at the bulb and noticed that the element looked ok, but the glass had a burn mark on the right hand side (looking at the bulb). I replaced the bulb and the problem still exists. Thinking that one of the kids hit something on the remote, I've reset the TV back to factory defaultsw but the screen is still green. There are no flashing lights on the front, the TV is acting normal except for the green screen. It does sound a little quiet, so I'm thinking tha tthe motor for the color wheel may be the problem. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    I've looked at the color wheel when I removed the bulb and housing the bulb sits in. The color wheel is sealed so I can't actually see any thing but part of the color wheel. The tech that upgraded the firmware last year told me over the phone that it could be the motor that turns the color wheel. I've got everything running through a surge protector/line conditioner and haven't had any spikes recently, and even when the power has gone out at the house, that protector has never tripped.



    On another note, the TV does sounds a little quiet compared to what it use to. I'm sure that I can't hear it "spin up" when I turn it on like it use to.

    Thanks for the comments, but I have a tech working on it right now. He ran through the standard scope if troubleshooting tricks and the issue is still happening. One thing that he noticed is that when the input is switched to coax, the screen is black and white, so he is thinking that it might be something on a board. He said that the problem is that the TV doesn't have red, only green and blue.

If you can see enough of it - you can bypass the lamp cover switch with a non-metal object - have someone turn the tv on and see if it is spinning - my guess is it is or the tv would turn off

I dont think it the color wheel - to make it green the glass would of come off and the tv would be vibrating badly. to check pull the lamp out and with a flash light look at the color wheel -
you most likely got a surge that glitched the eeprom - you will need the service remote to adj the white balance
thanks

Magnavox 37MF23ID, would not turn on. Power button only blinks (green light). We have switched power cords and nothing happens. No picture, no sound.


if the power light comes on but the screen stays black, then your TV might be on the wrong input Channel. for example: you switch inputs when you play games or watch dvds vs. watching regular tv. Try to change the input

My green light comes on but no picture


Sounds like tv is on wrong input. Be sure HDMI wire or cable input is connected to tv. Look at which input it is on. ( like HDMI 1. Or cable etc. take tv remote (with cable box on ) press input / video button and arrow down to different inputs ( slowly ) until the right input is detected or simply go to the right input you noticed the cable was connected to. Different inputs are there for different sources of connections like DVD. Games. Etc. each work like its own tv channel. Good luck.most times this happens when you are watching tv and press the TV. channel button which will take you to a different tv mode

Vcr tape doesn't show on screen when playing


Hi there,

If the picture from the DVD shows on the screen, but the pictire from the VCR does not, it is most likely because you are using sockets on the back of the player that are exclusively for the output from the DVD.

Please review your connections in relation to the diagram below. If the cables from the player to the TV are only in the red box, you will not get any picture from the VCR. You will need to move the connections to the sockets in the green box or add a separate connection for the VCR using the sockets in the green box. Whether or not this is possible depends on what input sockets are available on your TV.

You will notice the heading above the red box says "DVD". This means the connections in this section can only be used for DVD. The heading above the green box says "DVD/VCR" meaning the connections here can be used for both.

There are a fews ways to set this up. To get the best picture quality from DVD, you should continue using any connections you may have in the red box and add another cable from the green box to the TV for the VCR. You will also need to select different INPUTS on the TV depending on whether you want to watch DVD or VCR if you are using 2 cables.

I suspect this will be the cause of your problem. If you need any further explanation or assistance, please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question. If you would like me to draw a connection diagram between the DVD/VCR and your TV, please let me know the brand and model number of your TV.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

We're not getting any sound from the dvd's. I have two cables (green/blue/red) and (red/white). but I'm at a loss how to connect from DVD to TV. Help please!


If your TV has the green, blue, red inputs then connect these 3 cables for the picture. DVD to TV, green to green, blue to blue and red to red. If your TV only has a yellow input, then connect the green cable only from the DVD yellow to the TV yellow. Now for the sound. Connect the DVD white to the TV white. Connect the DVD red to the TV red with the red cable. The white and red inputs will be next to the yellow and the green, blue, red inputs on the TV. Next select the TV input using your TV remote. Select the input for the DVD connection.

Not sure if this is the tv or what. Was watching this tv yesterday. Then suddenly all other channels except for the one I was on either had squiggly colored lines or 3 mirrored versions of the picture. Now...


Does it happen on other inputs? If so, reset the tv, sat or cable box, unplug power and try again. Play a dvd. Does it happen on a dvd? If not, there is an issue with your cable source. If it shows on dvd too, contact your tv manufacturer. You need a repair.

Samsung 2333HD to dvd/vcr combo


Hi there,

On a DVD/VCR combo unit....the Component Output (RED, GREEN, BLUE) is exclusive to the DVD player section only (VCR can only output analogue source) and will only be able to view DVD.

To watch VCR, you will need to connect to your TV via Composite (YELLOW) cable, into the Yellow AV input on your TV. You can then tune the VCR section to match your TV's RF input (if you prefer this connection).

Good luck...

I need a diagram of how to hook up my jvc 5.1 surround sound to my tv, dvd and cable box


I my self don't have that exact unit, but most are similar, and i have looked up the specifications which are:

Inputs:
1 x S-video input
1 x Composite Video Inputs
1 x Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input
1 x Stereo Audio Input

Outputs:


document.write(neg_specification_newline('1 x S-Video Output
1 x HDMI Output')1 x S-Video Output
1 x HDMI Output
INPUTS (coming from devices to the system):
1) The unit already comes with a DVD player, correct? If so you don't need to connect it. If you do, connect your DVD play via an s-video input, since a normal DVD player doesn't need a higher quality/resolution input.

2) Connect your cable box to the home theater system via a composite cable (the one with Red green blue), if it has composite outputs ofcourse. If not, do it visa versa with the DVD, if your dvd has composite. So make the dvd via composite and cable box via s-video.

3) Audio from the dvd, this would be via Digital Audio (TOSLINK) Input or stereo audio input. the digial audio will give you true 5.1 surround sound, and the stereo will only give you left and right channels, like you would hear from anything else (like a normal cd, radio, etc).

4) audio from cable box, would be again depending what you want. If you cable provider gives you alot of programming that has 5.1 surround sound (mostly HD channels), you would be better off with the digital audio. But if you watch more via your DVD, then connect the cable box via the stereo input. Again, this is to your preference, and which one you want true 5.1 surround sound from. The system should be able to 'emulate' 5.1 surround sound via the stereo cable too, but if your watching a movie, it can't really tell if a sound is supposed to come from the left rear or the left front.

Output:
5)connect to tv via HDMI if available, or S-video.

HDMI is much higher resolution (HD quality) S-video is normal cable programing or 'dvd quality'.

And the Tv would be left on mute or volume=0 since no audio is connected to the tv! All the audio should now come from your system.

Sorry if this was too vauge, but I don't have the same system and dont know exactly what/where all the connections are. If you have any other questions let me know.

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...


The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.
