Question about LG Televison & Video

2 Answers

Hi We have bought an LG LD950 47" 3D TV (passive 3D). We want to play a 3D film that has been made for us. We have currently got it on our computer as an MPG file. We put it onto a USB stick and have plugged that in. It does not acknowledge that it is 3D and just plays the two pictures that make up the 3D image side by side. We have varously been told to play it on a 3D blu ray or plug in the inital file using an HDMI socket to make it think it's receiving a 3D signal. How can we play this file in 3d on the screen?

    Please can someone offer me advice specific to the LG LD950 regarding what we need to do to make it play the MPG file (currently on computer and USB stick).

    This is what we've been trying to do. The problem at the moment is that when we press the 3D button it just flashes up an error message: "Not available device signal. (available only for 3D signal).

    Two thoughts:
    1. It's the wrong file type (MPG). Someone suggested mp2
    2. It's not expecting it to be 3d because it's USB and not HDMI. But don't know how I can get a usb adapted to a an HDMI.

    Any ideas?

Maybe I've missed the point here, but the LG 47LD950 will play 3D movies from a memory stick plugged into the USB port and a 3D movie is composed of 2 separate images. This is how 3D TV works! The images can be displayed side-by-side, top and bottom, checkerboard or 'frame sequential'.

If your TV is displaying 2 images side-by-side, but you don't have a 3D picture with your passive 3D glasses on, you simply need to change the 3D settings on the TV. Additionally the TV doesn't automatically switch to 3D when playing a 3D movie from a memory stick (it will from HDMI 1.4).

The movie you downloaded in in side-by-side format, so you need to switch the TV to 3D mode and select side-by-side 3D.

Please try the following:

1. Insert the USB memory stick and play the movie
2. Press the 3D button on the LG remote to switch to 3D mode.
3. Using the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys on the LG remote, select the SIDE-BY-SIDE images
4. Press tOK
5. Put on your 3D glasses
6. If the 3D image does not appear correctly in the glasses, press the LRSELECT button on the LG remote once to switch the left and right images.

Please try this then let me know if you need further assistance.

    Hi Ben - Thanks for getting back to me. I suspect the file rather than the TV - or essentially a mismatch between the type of file on the memory stick and the file types the TV can display in 3D.

    This TV can definitely play 3D movies from a USB memory stick.

    There are USB to HDMI converters available, but they're really for connecting a computer which has no HDMI output to an HD TV. It wouldn't work in the way that you want it to. To play the file from the memory stick via HDMI, the memory stick would need to be inserted into the USB port of another HDMI device, e.g. a 3D enabled Blu-ray player. I'm sure there are easier and less expensive ways of making this work!

    I need to do some checking on this and I will get back to you sometime this afternoon.

    Have you (or whoever made the film for you) sucessfully played this film in 3D on any 3D device from the USB memory stick?

To watch anything in 3D you'll need a 3D-compatible TV and a source capable of delivering 3D content to the television--most often a 3D Blu-ray player, but perhaps a cable or satellite box, game console or streaming video device. For some setups you'll want an AV receiver or home theater system that can switch HDMI 3D sources. On the other hand you'll most likely not need to buy any new HDMI cables. Oh yeah: you'll also need a pair of 3D glasses for every viewer. Passive 3D TVs, will work with most circular polarized 3D glasses regardless of brand.

3D option on menu is not slectable

1) you must try again, replace the batteries with new one.
2) if doesnot work call the LG ,company go and get support online via chat, and ask them about your problem.
Most of the time is the Microcontroller section, for VCC +RST+CLOCK problem, this is a difficult for normal persons to test, you must go to the repair shop TV as another option,if the LG company fail.

How do I view movies in 3D on the Mitsubishi WD-Y65?

WD-Y65 is NOT a 3D ready TV. You either have to change the TV to see the movie in 3D, or just watch it in 2D in you current TV.

I have the same TV as yours. Current I connect a desktop PC to the TV via DVI port, and I watch Avatar using colorcode 3D(Amber/Blue) with Stereoscopic Player from It might be a way for you to enjoy 3D without change the whole thing, but it's an entire different topic.

If you were to find a film that works then look at the format of it on your PC. Converting the films that don't work to the same format should do it.

What tv did i need 2 buy to use the cheap 3d glasses

Hi, it's not really the tv you need but the film, alot of the films shown in 3d have a red and green outline to the characters and objects and can be played in most any dvd player, this is the type of film or programme that require the cheap 3d glasses.

A film example can be seen via Youtube using these type of glasses, note that it may take a few minutes for your brain to adjust to seeing the 3d result.

Hope this kind of answers the question.

It may well be that these Blu Ray are the new generation discs. You may need to download the Firmware upgrade file burn it to a Cd and run it by pressing Play.

Need to activate dvdxcopy gold

this software in my own experience is not very user friendly. I recommend getting on a torrent site and trying different DVD software instead actually. Unless you purchased a key, then click on help, and there you should be able to enter your key code to activate in the 'About' section or Register.
