SOURCE: 32LG3000 TV LCD - usb port ''service only''

Yes it's possible to use the USB port , you only have to change settings in TV setup to change it.
With software ver 3.15 it's very easy see link below how to change setup.

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 plug in the USB

First, try using a different USB stick. If that doesn't fix the problem then your new tv is either faulty or the tv operating system has a bug.

Check the LG website in your country to see whether there are any firmware updates available. If not, then return the tv for refund or exchange, but make sure to try your USB drive on any replacement set in store as it's highly likely to be a bug in your model which will affect all of the other examples as well.

I have a rca model rtu5540 . I don’t know how to activated the USB on the side of the tv, the book they give...they said it s a service port but give no explication how to activate.

USB flash drives require no power up. USB cameras, etc. may have a power button. If you insert, let's say, a flash drive into the TV's USB port, making sure it is fully inserted, it is already powered by the TV. What you are encountering is not a matter of activation but rather access which is granted by settings of the TV. You basically select from "input" menus, the USB choice. The TV then reads what is on the flash drive. You may have to move through the input options using your remote as such controls may not be otherwise accessible. The "input" menu may be the one that allows choice of HDMI, DVD, etc..

19 Inch HD Ready Digital LCD TV/DVD Combi. Is it possible to use the USB port and if so, how?

Dear Megan,

This Port could be a Service Port or USB Input and /or USB Output. Make sure it is Not labeled "service only"
If you have a Jump Drive with pictures / music on it, plug it into the port and see what happens. This port could also be used as a charging port for cellphones,GPS etc...depending on the function it was designed for.
Good Luck!

Portable device tab missing in device manager

What type of portable device? Are you talking about something like an external drive or a usb flash drive or something that you plug into the computer's usb port? If so, maybe the usb port is bad, so try another usb port.

Maybe the portable device is bad, so try using it on another computer and see if it is shown. Most times it will show up under My Computer along with the hard drive. Click Start/My Computer and see if it is shown.

Can't play video on sharp lc-32sb24u

The USB port on LC-32SB24U is only for firmware and other service updates. The TV can't understand the video file format; you will need to connect the TV to your computer as a monitor to display the videos. The manual discusses using the Service port starting on page 26. The manual is available here: http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/Sharp_LC37SB24U_LC32SB24U_Manual.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

Unhide hidden object in my sd card

Insert the USB drive into your computer's USB port and navigate to it through My Computer.

Now double click on the USB drive.
Once in the directory of the USB flash drive click tools at the top menu bar of your screen. Then click folder options. Now click the view tab. Scroll down a bit to the folder heading that reads: Hidden Files and Folders.
Select the option that reads: Show Hidden Files and Folders.

Now click apply and then OK.

This will show all available hidden files and folders that are present on your USB flash drive or card.

Take care!
