Looks like there is a loose connection somewhere, or one of the capacitors is ready to go bust. I recommend calling a qualified local repair man to get this checked, as there are a number of tests that will have to be done physically to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, I cannot provide any more suggestions or fixes unless I manually have a look.

How do I convert from DVD to cable?


Do you wish to get signals from DVD player to TV? If so, the antenna connection won't work. You should use AV connection, using AV cable, and have to select the input to TV as AV. Contact any service technician. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

My panasonic viera has just stopped working. I can play a dvd but not watch tv, It says no signal. I have checked all leads and none are loose. It worked yesterday!! What is wrong with it? Please help


What is your TV source? Is it OTA, cable or satellite? Do you use a set top box or a direct coax cable connection? If you have OTA, what antenna do you use?

Try the following depending on your setup:

For all, check if a lightning/surge protector has taken a surge and needs to be replaced. These are placed in the coaxial line to divert a surge that could destroy your electronics. Also try replacing the cables. Check exposed cable for damage.

For OTA, first check that your antenna is oriented to point to the transmitters in your area. (Outside antennas will sometimes turn in the wind; indoor ones can be bumped.) Try a new coaxial cable. If the antenna has an amplifier (or you use a splitter with or without an amplifier), try connecting the cable directly without the device. I've had several amplifiers fail and turn into signal filters (blocking all of the signal).

For any system with a set top box, make sure that the box is on. For satellite, make sure that your dish hasn't moved out of alignment.

To check if it is the Viera TV tuner or the incoming signal, try another TV at the same connection. If you have cable and another TV gets no signal directly connected to your incoming connection, you may need the company to fix the incoming cable. (Underground cables can be damaged by rodents or neighbors who dig without checking for utilities.)

I hope this helps.

I cannot briing in a picture. Upper left corner of picture says it is on channel 4...upper right corner "no programs availab le"How do I program TV to bring in a picture.; I am on Insight Cable.


Typically the cable box is the source of your channel programming. If you're getting the "no programs available" you need to find if that notice is from your TV or your cable box. Check the connections from your cable source to the cable box and from the cable box to your TV.
Make sure that your TV is set on the proper source selection. Most Projection TV's have several (ant, cable A, B, DVD etc) check your on-screen menu for which one and make sure the cable is connected to the proper input ports on the back of your TV.
If you disconnect the cable between the tv and cable box and still get the "no programs "...then it's your TV.. but if you lose that warning, then it's coming from the cable box... If after checking your connections, disconnect the power to your cable box and let it sit for 5 minutes and then reinsert the power to the box and see if you get a reset with signal...... If nothing after all this, contact your cable provider to check their signal to your house and also the cable box.... Hope you have quick success on this!

there are 2 types of flicker, one is the lamps that drive the display and the second is the sync signal of the video.
I assume the video sync is the flicker you see,
I would try connecting a different way to make sure it is not the tv,
connect using the aux /rca connectors to cable box.
and or connect using the cable direct bypassing the cable box.
I have seen several complaints about the hdmi cable signal being incorrect in some way,
this is the same issue that the svideo connector had in its early adoption signal was too hot or too low.
another thing to watch out for is the low light sensor on the front of tv if it gets an incorrect reading it can flicker the back light though it should be slow in doing so.
some times the flicker you see is not flicker but ac running through the sides of the picture from an ungrounded cable source.
how does it perform if you play a dvd player , with and without the cable box connected.
