I feel the images may not be of the same resolution as your plasma is ready to except check the res of the images using photo shop or any other imaging software set the res of the image to the last seen image on the screen this should be able to solve your problem

Hello to all. Have twin boys staying over the holidays and they wished to view movies when they went to bed. have Polaroid 32" P32LED12 fitted to their bedroom. The tv is ok for playing dvd through it but when on using the usb drive with movies on it, it came up Invalid or Unsupported file. Have tried different movies with different formats and came up with nothing to play. So got myseld a video converter program: Wondershare video converter ultimate. On looking at the booklet from Polaroid, it says MPEG1.2, but although on converting the film to this format, the film broke up. So I took an AVI trailer and converted the trailer to all the formats on the converter and stuck this on the USB and stuck it into the tv. Out of all of them, i found that the converter format was VOB DVD FORMAT in this coverter. The film did not break up and the sound great. The film sizie was a bit smaller in frame size but this can be increased. What the converter showed after the conversion was: DVD-Video/ Format: VOB. Video Codec: MPEG-2/ Audio Codec: MPEG-2 audio. There is a settings on this converter at the lower right corner, but you can fiddle with this yourself. But to finish with, I have tried most of the films with different formats and could not get them to work on this tv, so get yourself a video program converter, put in laptop or pc and convert film to VOB. Hope this helps as there is nothing in any help on google for this tv.
Sounds like you may need to check your video drivers for an update,
besides Windows itself find out what video you have Intel or Amd and
update thru their website. It can also be that your tv is running at a
resolution that your laptop might not support.However most new video
drivers allow for custom resolution settings that can be applied besides
the native ones in windows.If its a vga cable I almost can be certain
that it is not allowing the native resolution of your display.Hdmi will
automatically adjust it.Also try hooking the laptop up to a Pc monitor
and check for a display if it works on the monitor you need a custom
resolution for your tv. Also try a different input on the tv (if ones
available) and check it.
You get invalid format, or format not support becuase the video resolution setting on your PC is too high for the monitor to display, you need to lower your PC video resolution to the native resolution of the TV to get the best picture. Look at the owner manual for your TV or search the web.
Try rechecking all wire connections for proper placement and fit too and from the tv. Try adjusting the video format on the DVD, flip through 480p and 1080i. See which format works best with your tv. Do the same with Wii.
You may need to use the S-video cable for video. Make sure video mirroring is disabled on the powerbook. Also, make the external monitor the primary display by dragging the menu bar to it in Displays preferences (Mac OS X) or the Monitors control panel (Mac OS 8 and 9).
