SOURCE: my plasma tv go's to standby while I'm watching it

I have the service manual and it has a lot of symptoms for your problem can you tell me exactly what happens when you first start the TV but it sounds like a scan converter problem This is what I got from the service manual page 4

4-2. Self Diagnosis Function

4-2-2. Criteria for Judgment of Abnormality

11. Detection of abnormality in communication with scan
converter.
(Name of this function on the service menu : OTHERS)
Warning when communication with scan converter
cannot be performed normally

or this could be it

14. Detection of PDP failure.
(Name of this function on the service menu : Nil)
PDP is suspected to be defective when DIGITAL 5 V
is normal among the voltages (VS, VA, DIGITAL 5
V) required to drive PDP while both VS and VA are
not inputted.
When all the following conditions are satisfied, the
machine enters once to the STANDBY mode then turn
the main power back on again.

1) DC 180 V power is 40 V or less.
2) DC 70 V power is 20 V or less.
3) DIGITAL 5 V is normal.

The above-described operation is repeated three times.
If the above three conditions are still satisfied, the PDP
is judged to be faulty and the main power is shut
down.

I can send you the manual if you want it

SOURCE: problem connecting cable wires for Sony PFM-42B2 42 in. Plasma TV

This is a monitor, not a TV. You need a VGA, SVideo or composite connection for video. There are S-video modulators to convert your RCA signal to S-video. About $30 at Radio Shack or Best Buy.The audio is pass through only. You must have external speakers with an outside power source. If you don't have an amplifier for outside audio you can use a cheap set of computer speakers.

Green light comes on briefly then flashing red light. no picture


These flashes are fault indications, and are blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. If you wish to get more details about these blinking codes to plasma TVs, check this link It has detailed description. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

The image moves around constantly


This is a main board fault. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

I can't connect my xbox360 to my sony pfm-42b2 tv


Keep in mind that your Sony IS NOT A TV, but a monitor instead. There is an actual XBOX360 VGA adapter that's available at most gaming retailers. It was initially designed for those who wanted to use their PC monitors for there console gaming. HDMI is NOT compatible with a VGA input as HDMI is a digital signal type and VGA is an analog type connection. You must also remember to have the XBOX set to a NON-progressive resolution (480i) if trying to hook it up using the standard XBOX video cables.

Fan very noisy


It is unusual for fans to become noisy buy with the power off you can check to see if it the fan has something trapped in it - in which case remove it. Also check to see if there is any blade damage. Check to make sure it is securely fastened and if not tighten the screws / bolts that secure it. Spin the blades with your finger to see if it makes any noise, wobbles or is difficult to move. If so then it may need replacing. Make sure the blades do not protrude out of the casing - if so push down on the centre of the blade to see if it will go back into position. The power to the fan may be unregulated so the fan may change speed and effectively pulse and therefore change pitch – check the supply voltage and ripple content. Other than that the fan may just need replacing.
