Question about LG Televison & Video
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.

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.

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.

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.)
