Question about Televison & Video
SOURCE: i have an lg 50pt8
Check your owners manual and see if there is a way to format the hard drive. If so, format it and try it again.
If not, or if you can't get past the hdd error, check your owners manual and see what type of hard drive it takes. Go to your local computer store, buy one and install it in your TV. This SHOULD stop the error message, and allow you to format the new drive using your TV's menu structure. Again, check the owners manual for formatting instructions.
If you are an experimental type of person, you can install the tv hard drive in an external hard drive case, plug it into your computer and try to get it running.
Finally, if it turns out to be some kind of proprietary hard drive you may have to check with LG to purchase a replacement.

I have a rh 265 remote and lg tv. It stopped controlling the tv. I hold the tv power button down on remote then pushed 1 at the same time. It reset it to work with my tv.

hmm...similar problem here. i've taken the hdd out and plugged it in to the ide port inside my pc. The problem is it's the wrong file system. Your pc will not see it. It is however just a normal hdd so you can re-partition it and give it a new file systm ie ntfs but you lose all the data :(. that's as far as i've got, hope it helps someone.
