When I power on the TV, the blue light comes on then a red blinking light comes on. The TV has no sound or picture.


You need to troubleshoot it to narrow down the problem. It may be in the shutdown/restart mode because it senses shorted circuits, or it may have failed power supply.

How do you change tv from 1080i to 1080p lg42lf2500 lg 42inch lcd tv thanks.


Not sure about your exact model, but for most HDTVs, you cannot set the resolution in the TV itself, the TV will automatically adjust to whatever signal is sent to it.

Note that Many HDTVs cannot do 1080p over component video inputs, only HDMI. Also, check for firmware updates for your TV, as manufacturers seem to be are often fixing bugs with things like HDMI input detection and so forth.

Dvd player wont work on LG 42LG70 LCD TV. Talked to guy at best buy, says normal cable should work. he thinks there are bad ports on the tv. Thoughts?


Call LG tech support and describe your problem. You could have a bad connection on your main board for the input. Use a different type of connection, if you have tried hdmi, switch to coaxial cable, or use a RGB or standard AV cable and see if the player works. also try dvd player on another tv to see if it functions. hope this helps.

Connecting laptop to lcd


You may need to use the S-video cable for video. Make sure video mirroring is disabled on the powerbook. Also, make the external monitor the primary display by dragging the menu bar to it in Displays preferences (Mac OS X) or the Monitors control panel (Mac OS 8 and 9).

Usinging my televison as a monitor


Most laptops will have a TV-out, with a yellow connector cable. You can connect this to your TV. It'll be great to watch movies that way, not to use as your normal monitor.
Hope this helps.
