Plasma switching between

My Samsung PS42P2SBX/XEU seems for some reason to be switching between AV1 and AV2 continously by itself. Not sure if this is something that has been accidentally pressed on the remote control by the kids or if it is a fault. Please help i am rather frustrated. Thank you.

My plasma LG TV has a black display box in the top left corner of screen. No words or text in it, just a black box covering that coirner of do I get rid of it?

There should be a button on your TV remote that will be called "Display" or "P in P".
The display button usually displays which input you have selected, such as: SAT for Satellite; AV1, AV2, AV3 or AV4 - depending on how many inputs your TV has, to plug in devices like a VCR or DVD recorder/player.
Otherwise, if you have a more sophisticated TV, it could be that you have accidentally pressed the "P in P" button, that selects the Picture in Picture mode. If you have done this, your TV will display the main picture of the input you have selected, plus another input, (such as SAT or AV1 or AV2 etc. as I've mentioned above). If the AV1 or AV2, etc. input is not active (not switched on) then that input will only display a blank (black) picture in the top left corner of the screen.
Hope this helps...

Which conections for the video and audio cables should be used for the Wii? I put them into the side panel (because of easy access), but can not get the start screen for wii after all is turned on....

once you have matched up the wii audio and video cables to the side panel yellow for video
white and red for audio
thinking you plugged them into one of your tv's av slots
now use your tv remote to switch through your tv's inputs (av1) (av2)
some tv's have a button like that on the tv itself.

Cant see Picture

Nope. The AV inputs except a composite video signal that is either NTSC or PAL. You will need to convert the PAL signal to NTSC.

Plasma TV PS-42Q7HX/XSJ

hey, i had this problem with a CRT television once. My subwoofer would cause the same issue in that TV. There is a rather large magnet in the subwoofer that creates a field that will mess your TV up if it's too close to it. not sure if the same applies to the plasma, but i'd definately move it more than 5 feet away from the screen. sometimes it takes 24hrs or so for the tv to repair itself after doing so. hope this helps.
