Trying to set up my lg dvd recorder but i can't get sound on hd. It comes on when i first turn it on but when i change channel i can't get ant sound
I suggest you post the model number as well as the make
so make and model number of the recorder
and make and model number of tv as well
and test it using scart before using HDMI
Try resetting the unit, first by disconnecting the power for 10 minutes.
If no change, Reset by holding the power button down on the unit for more than 5 seconds.
If no change follow this rest procedure:
To reset Unit to original factory settings (except for Rating, Password
and Area Code), and to format HDD:
a) Display set up menu (see Displaying Set Up Menu)
b) Auto Programming is highlighted. Select Initialization from
c) Select option in right panel:
Factory Set. Auto Setup menu is displayed.
HDD format. HDD contents are erased.
d) Press OK [ ] to confirm
Choose Factory set - NOT HDD format.
Cheer's i will try that in a tick. But will i lose the programs i have recorded on the HDD
If so i will transfer to disc but this take's a while as there is no quick way of doing it.
Done what you said but still no joy??
Do you think it's a faulty dvd??
Cos i only brought it friday so i might go and change it for another?
Just can't get my head round why it's greyed out??
It works fine on scart. But when i use HDMI the sound comes though but as soon as you change channel and go back to HDMI no sound comes though????Is the unit connected by HDMI?
If so try connecting by scart and see if the problem remains.
Were there any country settings to input when you did the installation?

This is an HDMI security issue in that case and could reside in the TV or the source unit.
Typically, sound is blanked if the source unit cannot get the information back from the TV that the TV is a legitimately connected device.
You may need ultimately to contact the maker of your TV to see if there are any outstanding compatibility issues with the set... but first try:
...disconnecting the HDMI.
Turn everything off,
reset the TV by unpowering it for 5 minutes...
Turn it on for a minute.. then back off.
Now reconnect the HDMI and turn on the TV then turn on the DVDR.
If you still have problems after that - you could:
...try another HDMI lead.
...or contact manufacturer of TV and DVDR.
...return unit for replacement. [...although I expect a replacement may well behave the same way. ]
or use scart.
