Question about Philips 42PF9630A 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

No picture but sound

I have had this TV for a week and the Cable guy came to put in Digital Cable today. Within an hour I was plugging in video cables for my DVD player and putting the Tv against the wall and the screen went black and said Channel can't be found. I went to the menu and changed it to DV1 and now I have sound and can change the channels via my box but I still have a black screen. What's up with that?

    Ok I have the five cables (two of which are audio) that are all connected going from the Cable box to the back of the TV. There are two reds, a green, a blue and a white I have now disconnected all DVD cables and I am concerned about getting the main picture back. Still having the same black picture with sound. the weird thing is that I can get the menu up fine on the screen but no TV picture

How did the cable person hook up the cable? Was it thru an rf connector and you need to put the tv on A channel . Or are there video and audio cables from the cable box to the tv? We need to have more info please. Thanks

Power cord is shorting out


The cable guy may have bumped the power connector and loosened it. Try pushing it in firmly. Sometimes the power connections get loose over time

Viera TH-46PZ85U. gray box where picture should be


If it was a setting on the television, then the cable info would also be affected. Try a reset on your cable box, as the cable info is generated within the box from the data stream, whereas the picture is streamed from the provider.

If the reset doesn't work, it's time to call the cable company - it's not a fault with your telly.

No sound on my 32'' Insignia LCD HDTV


you might try checking the sap (secondary audio programming) option in your tv if it has one make sure it is turned off. if it is off or does not have that option you will most likely have to take it to a repair shop. i would not try to fix it my self as you will do more harm than good.
