Question about Televison & Video
I have recently got a celestial hdmi set top box & am trying to connect to my LG rear projection tv for the first time. I have the red, green blue cords pluggd into the appropriate plugs but it isnt working. I do have power switched on and lights are on for the box & by putting tv on component it sends background black but nothing else. What am I doing wrong?

normally the a-v cables are color coded the white goes with white the red goes with red and yellow goes with the yellow and when putting it in the dvd player if applicable it should be the same way did your tv come with a manual showing you how to hook it up

Sorry guys, have checked on other forums and unless it is still under warranty, or you are good with electronics, it is not worth fixing. Apparently it is a problem with the chip and capacitors on the board. I opened up my STB after fining this out and found heat stress marks all around the chip. Result : Its dead!

The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.

Your problem is most likely the thermistor , or degausser, is going bad. It is a little black box with pins and says D1R5M on it. It can be found by following the wire from the degaussing coil around the picture tube. The location number is CF803( i think)the Panasonic partnumber is D4DF1R50001. Also, I believe your fuse is 6.3A not 3.6A.

Could be that the Scart socket doesn't pass through the signals from the receiver. I had a Goodmans TV with Scart input which just didn't respond to the receiver. When I moved it to the Scart connector on my VCR it worked a treat.
