Your physical connections are correct. You can try the blu-ray on HDMI 1 just to see if it is really outputting a signal; and the cable box on HDMI 2 to make sure it actually works. Anyhow, you _are_ using the remote to select between HDMI 1 and HDMI 2, right? Just had to cover that base. If one of the HDMI ports is not working, and a factory reset (see your user manual) doesn't fix it, you could have a defective port. Get it fixed under warranty if you can. If you cannot, get an HDMI Switch (go to amazon dot com and search for "hdmi switch"). Plan to spend more than $25 for that option to ensure you get a good quality item. Good luck.

Try connecting your blue ray player to HDMI 1.
A) If it works there, then you know the port on the TV is OK & the problem is with either your HDMI cable or your cable box.
B)If it still doesn't work then you may have a problem with the port on your MAIN PCB. if it's a new TV your warranty will cover that as long as the input connector is not physically broken.

if you haven't unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, try that. otherwise, if that doesn't help, probably a board needs to be replaced. call phillips for service.

Try resetting the TV by holding down the "up" button on the remote (with the TV powered on) and then, while you hold down the up button on the remote, hit the power button on the TV. This should do a "factory reset" which will wipe all settings in the TV. There is no reason why the TV should not "remember the last input it was on when it was ;last turned off. Also be sure that the TV is not plugged into a switched AC outlet, like the outlet on the back of the cable bix. The TV should be plugged into an output that receives power at all times.

SOURCE: "No signal" sign on TV screen using HDMI selector

it sounds like a refresh issue, double check you selector and make sure it fits the refresh of the tv. i had this once with a sharp where the tv was 120hz and the selector was 60 and it created a no signal and when it did come in it was jumpy. if you have a 120 tv then selector should be the same.

SOURCE: I am getting a u73 error on my panasonic blue ray

U73 is a HDMI communication issue - the 2 HDMI chips from the tv and the player can't communicate or the communication is bad so the HDCP authentication failed (Westinghouse and Sony tv's are notorious for that). If you have a long (12+feet) HDMI cable and it is a cheap cable this could be the issue. If it is a short (If it's a handshake issue you can do just 3 things:
1. buy a good quality, 1.3 certified cable . You have probably done that so
2. update the firmware of the player and the tv. Once you have done that and the problem is still there then there's only one thing left
3. try changing the order that you turn on each device. Try turning on the tv first and have it set to the connected HDMI input BEFORE turning on the Panasonic. Some tv's to not continually check for HDCP handshake like they should.
If none of this work then your player and your tv are incompatible - it just happens. Eliminate the problem you will have to connect them indirectly, thru some other device , like an Home Theater.

How do I hook-up Netflix through a Sony Blu-Ray player and a LG television


If your Sony Blu-Ray player and LG TV are recent models, each should have an HDMI cable connection. HDMI is an method to connect your digital video and audio devices with just a single combined cable. In the case of your LG TV, using an HDMI cable will allow you to send the HD video signal to your TV's screen, and allow you to hear the sound through the TV's speakers.
Your LG TV may have multiple HDMI connectors, to allow other devices to send signals to your TV, such as a cable box or satellite box or digital video recorder (DVR). Your Sony Blu-Ray player will usually have just a single HDMI connector.
Purchase an HDMI cable from your local electronics store. There are different versions of the HDMI specification, and you should get a cable that you can verify is certified for the HDMI version 1.4 specification.
Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the Blu-Ray player, and the other end into one of the HDMI connectors on the TV, noting which one you selected.
When you turn on your Sony Blu-Ray and your LG TV, you should use the remote for the LG TV to select the input source. Your LG remote should allow you to select the HDMI input connector you used, at which point you should see the display of a DVD playing on the Blu-Ray player. If you cannot hear the sound, use the LG remote to increase the TV volume.

Hdmi cables input 1,2,3,4 which input goes to the tuner, direct tv box, blue ray on vizio E550i-AO


The choice is entirely arbitrary. You may connect any accessory to any HDMI input. I recommend you connect the device you use most (probably your direct TV box) to HDMI 1, your second most frequently used device to HDMI 2, and so on, but it's really a question of your own preferences.

I need help hooking up my system from cable box to old toshiba 52 inch tv does not have hdmi on tv red, green , blue wires i also bought today a sony blue ray player speakers are not working ...


Hello,

Please indicate the brand and model of your receiver, BD player and your speakers. Basically, you just need to connect the cable box and blue ray player to the receiver. The 5.1 speakers should be connected to the blue ray player, then another set of cables from your BD player to your TV. When you want to use the speakers while watching TV, you need to turn on the blue ray player too.

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

I have a 55" LG


Easy solution; this is a very common problem. Connect Cable or satellite box / DVR directly to one of the TV HDMI inputs. Connect an optical audio cable from that box to receiver so sound is surround through your speakers. You cannot connect DVR directly to receiver because the anti pirating chip will shut off the picture and produce a green or no screen at all.
You can, however, connect a BD (Blu-Ray) player via HDMI cable directly to your receiver without that problem. Connect HDMI output from receiver to a second HDMI input on the LG.
Contact me if you need more help! All the best, John

Cable TV blinks on and off when connected to my Onkyo receiver.


I have the same problem.  It only occurs with my HD DVR (HDMI cable), not my blue ray (HDMI cable), or my xbox and wii (component video).  Video and audio cutout is random and drives the family nuts.  I am desperate for a solution.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

HDMI input stopped working


The problem is the main board in your TV. If your TV is a LG or SONY brand, please try this:

Re-Flow Soldering Procedure for LG Main Board

1.Pre-heat your kitchen oven to 385 degree (No more than 400 degree);

2.Put the main board on a card board (like a pizza box board) in the oven;

3.Heat it for 10 minutes (No more than 10 minutes);

4.Turn the oven off & leave the door open, at this moment, do not touch or move the board until it colds down to the room temperature.

5.Install the board in the TV & try it out.
