Question about LG 42PG20 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Audio sync issues between my stereo and my new LG 42PG20.

The Audio signal is being received and transmitted by the stereo before my TV. I have Optus Cable TV and have tried to adjust the sound settings, no joy, I have moved the stereo cables through all the AV sockets and researched the internet only to be told I will most likely have to buy an additional device to correct the audio issues. I am loathe to do this as other advice from troubleshooting forums is that this sync issue can be fixed by a software upgrade.

Can anyone help as this tv is less than a week old and had I known about the sync issue with LG Plasma's, I might have considered a different brand. I had an older TV (not flat panel plasma) connected the stereo and there were no issues.

Any advice that does not involve the purchase of additional devices would be appreciated.

Can't get surround sound sound through tv mode, have sound only when cable box mode is on. I've tried hooking optical cable straight from receiver to tv and I've also tried AV jacks. Not sure.


The audio signal that your tv is producing is a stereo signal only - not surround. You should be able to manually put your receiver into a surround mode when using the tv input and get surround sound that way.

How do I change my audio setting


It depends on what you want to change about your audio setting. My cable box remote has two audio settings: one for changing the SAP language sound from English, to Spanish or French; and a setting that changes two separate audio functions: one changes the broadcast sound from Dolby Digital (TM) sound to regular stereo sound, and the other will allow using either a fixed setting (cable box sound level is at a fixed level allowing one to use the sound control on the TV, or other audio receiver), or a variable setting (allowing the use of the cable box to adjust the audio level).

My Sony TV control also allows me to adjust the tv's audio treble, bass, balance, and special effect sounds, and if needed, to turn the tv speakers off. Hope this is helpful..................Gary

No audio,tried menu items and selections,nothing.The sound just went out,what do you think it might be?


There is no sound or low volume coming from the television speakers.
Solution Follow this procedure to troubleshoot when there is no sound or low volume coming from the television.

NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the television status after completing each step.
Increase the volume of the television. Ensure the television audio has not been muted. Ensure no headphones are not connected to the television. If using a set-top box with a volume control, increase the volume of the set-top box.
NOTE: If the set-top box is connected using an Audio/Video (A/V) connection, ensure that the A/V cables are connected securely to the appropriate video input on the television.
Verify that the MTS settings of the television are set to MAIN or STEREO .
NOTE: If the source device is not set to stereo or is not capable of transmitting a stereo signal, sound may come from one speaker on the TV only, and the volume will sound low. In this case, adjust or replace the source device.
If the TV has a Simulated effect in the audio menu, turn it off . Ensure the televisions speakers are not set as the center speaker.
NOTE: Some televisions allow the televisions speakers to act as the center channel speaker when using a multi-channel receiver.
Verify that the speakers are set to ON in the television menu.
IMPORTANT: If the television has audio output jacks and they are connected to a stereo system, then the speakers on the television may be turned off. Some televisions require the internal speakers or the center speaker setting to be off before audio can be sent out to a stereo receiver via the audio out jacks.
Ensure all audio and video cable connections are properly connected to the television.
Test the television using another source like a VCR, DVD player or Blu-ray Discâ„¢ (BD) player.
Reset the television to the original factory settings. To reset your TV to factory settings, turn the TV ON. Then, while pressing the UP ARROW button on the Remote Control, press the POWER button on the TV. The TV will turn itself OFF then back ON.
NOTE: If your remote control does not have a RESET button or the procedure did not reset the TV to the factory default settings, perform a power reset.
If the issue is still unresolved after completing all the troubleshooting steps suggested, service may be required.

I have an older model Yamaha HTR 5830 receiver and I want to set it up for surround sound (5.1). When I test the receiver all five speakers give back a signal, but nothing ever comes out of the center or...


The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

What cable goes from the tv to the system so I get sound from both the system and the television


On the back of the TV, there should be a set of RCA audio output jacks. Colored red (R) and white (L). Buy a dual (red/white) RCA cable in the length you need. Plug it from the TV's RCA audio outputs to your stereo receiver TV input, or any unused input (but not phono/turntable in). Select that input from the choices on the front panel of stereo receiver.

Now, the RCA audio output from the TV might have a choice of variable or fixed level out. Adjustment is via the audio properties in the setup menu.

Variable means when you adjust the voulme on your TV, it affects the level going to you stereo receiver.

Fixed means that the audio output from the TV is a steady signal, and the adjusted volume on the TV does not affect the level to your stereo receiver.

I would choose FIXED. Hope this helps.

Speaker crackle


HDMI is a High Definition Multimedia Interface and has the capability to transmit both AUDIO and VIDEO all in one cable. Your setup right now is transmitting 2 audio frequecys (L/R stereo RCA and HDMI) into the Denon inputs. Not necessary! I would recommend eliminating the red/white audio cable from the direct tv box to the Denon.

After doing such, your receiver should be able to process audio/video signals appropriately. REMEMBER to unplug all POWER CORDS before reconnecting any speaker/audio/video cable, as it may cause a small electrical surge and fry a micro component in your system!

No surround sound when on TV mode


You may have to set the TV output to stereo or matrix out. Also if the stations are not in stereo or surround it will not play in surround.
If you are connecting to a cable or satellite box and you are just using the coaxial input to the TV you may not get stereo. Some cable companies only send mono signal through the coax and you need to connect the tv to the box using component cables and the R and L audio connections.
There may also be settings in the receiver that you have to adjust to get surround from the TV.
You could connect the audio out directly to the receiver instead of the TV and just use the receiver for TV sound.

Hope this helps

Hmm. let me see if I get U correctly. you use u'r theater system with a TV and the audio is fed via optical or U have DVD player that you can feed the audio via optical or coax. I think it is the later, if it is U could be having trouble with sound decoding setting of the DVD player itself. It's like mpeg out or PCM out instead of full DTS or 5.1 dolby digital decoding. If this is the case just use u'r dvd remote and check the audio play back settings. If this does not solve u'r problem, pls state u'r set up briefly, so tht I can understand the type of connection u use. Happy troubleshooting Rifaa
