Magenta line on LG 50PB4D

I believe my son plugged his XBox360 into the AV2 RCA sockets of the TV and then proceeded to change the PAL video options. Once the Xbox reset I now have a Magenta Vertical line when ever there is a Blue or Red part on the screen. This occurs on all inputs now HDMI/AV1/Analogue/Digitial. It doesn't appear to be the screen as it appears over several pixels, it is almost dead center (just between the "L" and "G" of the logo on the plastic panel). It's doen't appear on white/green/or black screen or part of it. I obtained the Service manual and identied that it could be the AVI x260 - I don't have any real test equipment apart form a DVM

Sounds like a backlight is out. If its still under warranty, exchange it. First try unplugging it for two minutes to reset the t.v.

How to hook up an old RCA 14 inch tv to DVD


Easy. All you have to do is to make sure that the DVD player is old the older types that have RCA connectors at the back of the DVD. Latest DVD may have RCA connections but I am not sure if it can send digital signal directly to the analog TV. Try this and see what happens. if your TV is old and does not have Component Video (Red/Green/Blue) RCA sockets (input) but has standard Pal/NTSC sockets (Yellow/Red/Black) hook up the yellow, red and black plugs into a DVD (out) RCA sockets of same colour, then hook up the other end of the cable in the (in) RCA sockets at the rear of the TV.
If it works, then all is well. If it doesn't work, then you have to hook up the cable from the DVD to the (input) RCA sockets of a Set Top Box, so that the Set Top Box will convert the signals for the analog TV. Just pay attention to the inputs and outputs at the rear of them.
On your DVD - plug the RCA cable to the (OUTPUT) RCA sockets. On the Set Top Box - plug the connectors in the (IN) RCA sockets and then use another cable connected to the OUT RCA's of the Set Top Box, then connect the other connectors to the (IN) of the TV RCA sockets. Hopefully you get the picture on what I mean.

I am at a hotel right now and they have an LG tv and remote. My friends were playing there xbox360 on it but now they went to bed and now im trying to turn it to the tv but its not working and its stuck on...


You need to find a way to change the input back to TV. There may be an "INPUT" button on the TV itself, and/or a button on the remote. Use either to scroll through the options back to "TV".

Having problems gettin sky channels through archos i get to setting infrared settings and can not get code.dont know wether to connect dvr t the tv or the sky box


Remove the DVR station from the box, and attach the DVR adapter plate (found in the
DEVICE box); it is correctly attached when it clicks on.
-Take the Black Audio/video Marked "output" cable, and insert the connections into the corresponding coloured sockets, yellow>yellow, green> green etc. Make sure they are
inserted into the TOP row on the back of the DVR Station "Marked Out". The remaining
black connector should be plugged into the SW socket, which can be found underneath
the orange socket on the back of the DVR station. (If after setting up your ARCHOS the
picture is very green remove the black cable from the SW socket)
-Plug the SCART connector into the SCART socket on your TV set. These are usually
marked AV1, AV2, or Ext 1, Ext 2, L1, L2, Line in 1, Line in 2, Aux 1, Aux 2, make sure you
select the corresponding channel above (ie AV1 AV2 etc) on your TV set when you turn on
the TV.
-Attach the UK plug adapter to the Mains charger, and plug the charger into the DC-In
socket on the back right of the DVR station. Turn the mains on at the socket.
-Insert the powered off ARCHOS unit onto the DVR station, the unit will now power on,
and ask if you want to 'Switch to TV out', select 'Okay'. The 'TV output configuration' set
up will load up. Select 'Okay'.
-TV connection: When your DEVICE is connected to the optional DVR Station you need to
select the type of video output (Composite, S-video, component, RGB, HDMI etc), based
on how you have connected the DVR Station to your TV and what possibilities your TV will
allow. For the cables supplied and the instructions aboce you will need to select either
RGB or Composite. Use the arrows to go through the options and select either RGB or
Composite.
-TV Standard: this should be set to PAL (Europe). Select 'Next'.
-Now you need to test the settings, select 'Okay', the ARCHOS home screen should now
be visible on your TV set. If you have nothing showing on your TV, scroll through the
AV/Ext channels, the channel will correspond to the AV/Ext socket you connected the
cable to on your TV set. Use the ARCHOS remote to select 'Okay'; you have now set up
the output connection settings for your DVR station.
-You may need to adjust your output from the ARCHOS to match your TV, from the "TV
Format" options. Use the arrows on the ARCHOS remote to select the format of your TV
screen, so the ARCHOS unit outputs the correct picture size (ie 4:3 / 16:9 etc). Use the
arrows on the remote to select 'Next'.

My LG Plasma tv 50pb4d constantly turn itself off. Has been doing it for a year.is this a common problem and can it be fixed?


yes it is, and yes it can. BUT it maybe a difficult problem to determine if it is intermittent, you will be best served waiting until it fails "Hard On" otherwise it may take some time to find the intermittent fault. http://www.retrevo.com/support/LG-50PB4D-TVs-manual/id/3068bh134/t/2/

Quite simple, I have an LG video recorder, and a Wharfdale dvdr24hd160f, both in line to my TV. Is there any way I can record old family video tapes to DVD, without interfering with my current wiring...


Hi, You should be able to depending on how your DVD is connected up. If it is hooked up using a yellow, red, and white lead (RCA. Common lead with a pin in centre of plug) there it should be no problem. On your TV there should be a set of sockets of the same colour. These should say monitor out, our output. Basically this set of plugs will send the picture and sound of whatever you are watching on the TV. If you connect from your monitor output sockets on your TV, to the input on your DVD recorder (will likely say AV1, or input on your DVD recorder) then it should record your video. You just have to make sure that the picture on your TV is the video you are playing, and the channel that is set to record on your DVD recorder is AV1. (You may also have an input at the front of your DVD recorder that says AV2 or input 2.) As long as you set your DVD to record the input set of sockets you plugged your cable into it should work. This set up will not alter the operation of your DVD or TV.

I am trying to connect an akai dvd player to directv, please help


ruettab,

good day. to connect your any DVD player to any TV screen always remember this color code

from DVD back part:

yellow = video out

red/blue/green( in a row) = component video out ( this can only be used for screen with component video inputs)


Black = digital audio ( rarely use unless)
Red and white (in a row) = Audio output (left and right audio)


where to connect from TV screen.

Locate where A/V INPUTS (audio/video socket) from your TV screen, you can see it either at the BACK/SIDE or somtimes in FRONT of TV screen , having marked as "AV1"AV2"AV3' .

Once you found TV input, you must first have RCA cable (color code cable to connect player to screen) then connect the RCA cable at the back of your DVD player, simply follow color code

RCA yellow marked cable = DVD yellow socket
RCA RED and WHITE marked cable = DVD RED and white socket (second row for your player)

then connect the other end of the RCA cable to TV screen, first select which input where you gonna place the DVD player ( either AV1, Av2 or Av3 if do have multiple inputs)

once decided which INPUT to connect the player.
ex. if you select AV1 as input there would be 3socket on its row (yellow/red/white)

now connect the other end of RCA cable to the screen by following the same color code:

RCA yellow cable = TV screen A/V1 input yellow socket
RCA RED and White = TV screen A/V1 input red and white socket.

cheers,
mark

Have a Sanyo DP42828(42"). My Satellite is working after the card resetting itself. But which 3 holes do I hook the (RED, YELLOW, and WHITE) for the dvd player?


dems,

Are you reffering to your DVD player to be conected to with your TV screen?

For DVD player connection the 3 colored RCA jack socket are:

YELLOW = video out
RED and WHITE = Audio out (left and right channels)

to hook up to your screen, at the back of the screen or side of it you'll see RCA socket indicating "AV1" "AV2" AV3" this are all Audio/video inputs where you can hook up all you A/V device or game consoles. These inputs also have the same 3 colored socket (yello = video red/white = audio)
connect your DVD player to any of this input following the same color code.After connecting the cable, select the input where you hook up your dvd player. Do this by pressing "A/V" buttons in remote commander of your TV. continously press this button until it reaches the exact location where you plug your player ex. AV1, AV2,AV3

note: in some cases the remote commander doesn't indicate this A/V button but a picture of a box having a arrow pointing inside the box.


cheers,
mark

Wii gone black and white, no colour


I bought a wii a few days ago and like everybody else mine too was in black and white with a grainy picture. I have a Panasonic lcd flat screen and thought I had connected it corrected, I got somebody out to have a look at it and found out there are some connections on the side of the TV which I hadn't even noticed before, once I put the red white and yellow leads in these and set the TV to AV3 everything is in perfect colour. Hope this works for some of you.
