Have you ever received a "No Signal" message when you turn on your LG TV HDMI? If you have met the “LG TV HDMI not working” issue, you can find solutions here. In this post, MiniTool Partition Wizard provides some helpful solutions for you to solve this issue.
The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a fully digital video and audio transmission interface that can transmit uncompressed audio and video signals.
HDMI can be used in equipment such as set-top boxes, DVD players, personal computers, video game instruments, integrated amplifiers, and digital audio and TV sets.
HDMI can also send audio and video signals at the same time on one cable, greatly simplifying the installation of the system lines.
However, the LG TV users have encountered the "LG TV HDMI not working" issue, which bothers them a lot. This issue can be caused by the reasons below:
- A faulty HDMI port.
- A faulty HDMI cable.
- Defective Motherboard.
This post shows you how to update the firmware and apps on TVs from brands LG, Sony, VIZIO, and Apple.
Solution 1. Choose The Correct Input Source
The LG TV has two HDMI ports: HDMI 1 and HDMI 2. So, you need to choose the right HDMI port when you use an HDMI cable to connect your two devices. If you don't choose the right port, you may encounter the "LG TV HDMI not working" issue.
For example, if you connect your HDMI cable to the HDMI 1 port on your LG TV, you need to use the remote to switch to HDMI 1 input.
Solution 2. Check HDMI Port and Cable
If your HDMI cable or ports are corrupt, you can also experience the "LG TV HDMI not working" issue on your LG TV. So, you need to be sure to check your cables, HDMI ports, and input sources on both the TV and the console to see whether there are any damages.
If you see any visible cuts on the cable or any bent pins on the ports, you can guess they have been damaged. After checking for the outward appearance of the HDMI cable, you need to make sure you have connected the HDMI cable to your devices correctly.
Meanwhile, you can also use this HDMI cable on another device or other ports to see whether it works normally. If it can work, it can prove there is something wrong with your HDMI port. If it can't work, it means that there is something wrong with this HDMI cable and you need to buy a new one.
