Question about LG 42PC1DA 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

LG plasma I can't see a regular cable hook up at the back of the tv. I've never had a plasma before, should i be looking for something different? I just want to hook up my cable cord to my tv. Also we don't have the proper remote. I bought a uni remote and it turns the tv on and off....the volume goes up on the screen but we can't get any sound.

Yes,there is a cable RF connector on the back of this TV (see diagram). After you connect the cable you need to access the menu to autoprogram the channels.Since you don't have the original remote to do this,you might be able to work thru the menus using the menu button on the TV itself.

Your Maxent MX-42EPM20 is not a TV (Television) it is a Plasma panel. The difference being your Panel does not a TV Tuner (no Coax jack or electronics relating to a tuner) Below is the spec sheet that shows this

What cables are needed to put tv on wall

Hello Numty,

Dont waste your £££ on gold plated they make no difference the back of your telly will be alley as well as all the things your connecting it to.

If I was you I would case the following cable into the wall. I would definetely put at least one scart in the wall.... this could be used for DVD, Sky, etc... I would run 3 HDMI in the wall... this would future proof you. ie when the cost of Blue ray player, etc come down in price.
playstation, Blue ray, Sky+ HD box etc etc. The last thing you want to do is have to chase the wall again.

There is a tool I saw in Maplin and Screw fix It attaches to a regular drill and is set at an angle. Makes chasing walls a Lot easier.

Hope this has clarified things for you..

Hope you get it sorted out.

Panasonic home theater

switch the HDMI cable to another HDMI port (if available).
or use and AVI/COMPONENT to make sure the device (HOME THEATHER) is working fine.
Try also another HDMI cable or hook another device into it to see how it works.
If you determine the HDMI port in not working properly, then your Mainboard is damaged and need to be replaced, try EBAY for a general picture of prices but you will need your product code wich is located in the back of the TV next to serial number.

LG plasma buzzing

Problem is probably with your cable box as you have confirmed that the set is working by using the dvd player, that is unless you have a bad cable for the cable box.
