You did not list which console you have and what type of cables it has.

Looks like your plasma has:
1 component
1 composite
1 VGA
1 S-Video

If this is an xbox360 or PS3 then you will want to use the component connection, but this one is already used by the cable tuner. Don't worry there is a solution. The xbox360 and ps3 output a higher resolution that your plasma can handle, so use the component with those systems.

If it is an older console, predating the xbox360, then use the composite or S-video connections.

Since you are short on video inputs, you might need a video switch. A switch with both component and S-video connections for future add-ons.

You can find them all over the web, or your local video store like walmart and best buy. Here is a switch i found on ebay that should work:

here is the ebay search i used:

Make sure you buy extra cables, most of these boxes do not come with cables, so buy what you need.

I prefer video switches that don't require a power outlet, but it's your choice. Some of the powered switches, have remotes for the lazy people, but I don't need anymore remotes on my table, keep that in mind.

I had the same issue twice with a TH 42PWD5. turns out it was my UPS that was killing the switching power supply. Warranty covered it but when I removed the UPS not a single issue in 3 years.

usually not very cost effective to replace the front screen. id say around 70% of what you paid for the tv.

Try changing the video output mode of the playstation and dvd player from CVBS (often called composite or video) to RGB. this should sort the problem.

SOURCE: TH-42PZ80U Panasonic Plasma, red light flashes 10 times

Panasonic said "A" board,
A board SOS Detect (Explanation)
10 Blinks SOS: The voltage regulators IC5400 and IC5401 in the A board generate SUB9V and SUB5V. The 9V and 5V from these ICs are monitored by IC1100. Any abnormality on the SUB9V or SUB5V lines, triggers the shutdown circuit and the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 10 times.

But need to measure the connection SC2, if it short, it will be the SC board.

The knowledge obtain from: Real case of repair by myself.
Information from Panasonic training manual.

Can i connect my panasonic viera th-42px8ou plasma tv,to my vista desk top? my tv has hdmi on it,my vista tower also says it has 1 hdmi connector on the back of it


You can buy an HDMI to DVI adapter (around 20$) to connect your HDMI computer cable to your TV. You will need separates audios cables, right and left, to bring the sound to the TV.

TH-37PE30 - DVD picture now lousy (herringbone?)


Do you have an S Video cable connection on the DVD player? I'd try that If you have one or component (red green blue) cable or even the composite (yellow) connection. The SCART connection on the input PCB of the tv could be damaged. The cost of this board may be pricey so if you can use the other type of connections with the DVD player I'd recommend that or get a DVD player that has one of those. Your model does not have HDMI so those are your only other options. Hope this helped

Trying to connect nintendo wii to philips tv


If I have the right manual you should connect the wii cable from the package to th backside of the tv. You will see four pluges. Choose with VGA you want to use, this is not important. Use the cable from the wii and plug in two of three pluges, you must match te coulors. If you have a cable box installed you will probably have scart (a big cable with a large head) connect this and it would run smooth. You can also connect the three pluges from the cable to your cable-box, use the red, wihte, and yellow pluge.

Whaere is the scart lead?


http://www.e-daewoo.com/products/owners_manual/DTS42(English).pdf

Please have a look at the above user manual from the Daewoo site. You may need to down load the Adobe PDF reader if you can't open the file. You can get that from this web site;-

http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

I am not sure that this is exactly your model but one page of the PDF document , page 14 shows the connections at the back of the TV with no obvious SCART connection. So I think you will have to connect the two using a component video cable and the Left and right audio cables as show in the manual on page 28. or via an s video cable and right and left audio cables as show on page 30.

If the connections in this manual look about right for the connections on the back of the your TV set I would be tempted to take this manual printed out (or just the image of the back of the set page 14) down to your local TV shop with the Freeview box and ask them what cables they recommend you use to connect the set.

Also be aware that cables from these TV shops cost a fortune and you can probably buy the cables cheaper on eBay once you know which ones you need. Without seeing the freview box its hard to know what cable options that box offers you.

How to connect my COmponents to my new LCD TV


Do you mean a Playstation 2? If so, buy a SCART to component converter (like a SCART plug but with yellow white and red inputs) Put it in one of the SCART sockets and plug in your PS2. Hope that helps...
