SOURCE: My lg lcd tv has a usb port but only recognises

You need to activate it first, here are the steps:

1. Press the enter(OK) both on the remote and the TV at the same time...hold for about 5 seconds
2. Password - 0000
3. Go to tool option 3
4. Change Jpeg to 1
5. Change Divx to SD or HD
6. Exit and try it out.
You will notice that now there are 8 inputs in the option list instead of 6 - Including a USB input.


Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have LCD TV LG

That is because the USB port is for servicing only and not for Video and audio.

How can I play mp4 movies on my lg dv288 via usb


The TV has to have a decoder to read the MP4 video recording format, unless it says that it has that you can't play any MP4 through the USB

How do I update to play mp4 films


USB memories formatted NTFS will read XviD videos. Ext3 or FAT formatted will copy or read XviD. MPEG4 is not supported but your TV may be able to show them directly via its USB PORT.

Hannspree hsg1075 says it plays video from USB but has no video in input menu.


Notes:
• It does not support "NTFS" and the maximum file size of a single file is 4GB.
• Progressive format jpeg files are not supported.
• Due to the compatibility limitation, not all of USB devices are able to be
displayed properly.
• Operation using USB hubs is not guaranteed.
• Due to the compatibility limitation, not all of external hard disks are able to be
detected correctly.
• Cables used to prolong the USB device must be certified as USB 2.0.
• In USB devices, video files may not be played properly if speed is not enough.

this tv will only play mp4 video (MPEG-4) ONLY AND DOES NOT PLAY THE H.264 MP4 FILETYPE EITHER...ONLY TRUE MP4, BEST BET IS TO GRAB YOUTUBEDOWNLOADER (IT'S FREE) AND USE THE CONVERSION FEATURE TO CONVERT YOUR MOVIES TO THE IPAD VIDEO SETTING WITH SAME QUALITY AS ORIGINAL SELECTED...CONVERSION TAKES 30 SECONDS...BEST 100% GUARANTEED TO WORK ANSWER..I KNOW...I HAVE ONE CONNECTED TO MY 4TB HARD DRIVE.

Can't play avi videos usb


Hello to all. Have twin boys staying over the holidays and they wished to view movies when they went to bed. have Polaroid 32" P32LED12 fitted to their bedroom. The tv is ok for playing dvd through it but when on using the usb drive with movies on it, it came up Invalid or Unsupported file. Have tried different movies with different formats and came up with nothing to play. So got myseld a video converter program: Wondershare video converter ultimate. On looking at the booklet from Polaroid, it says MPEG1.2, but although on converting the film to this format, the film broke up. So I took an AVI trailer and converted the trailer to all the formats on the converter and stuck this on the USB and stuck it into the tv. Out of all of them, i found that the converter format was VOB DVD FORMAT in this coverter. The film did not break up and the sound great. The film sizie was a bit smaller in frame size but this can be increased. What the converter showed after the conversion was: DVD-Video/ Format: VOB. Video Codec: MPEG-2/ Audio Codec: MPEG-2 audio. There is a settings on this converter at the lower right corner, but you can fiddle with this yourself. But to finish with, I have tried most of the films with different formats and could not get them to work on this tv, so get yourself a video program converter, put in laptop or pc and convert film to VOB. Hope this helps as there is nothing in any help on google for this tv.
