Black vertical line on p42w34p plasma


The plasma display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.

I have a 42"zenith plasma tv. Been trying for hours to auto tune,none of the channels come in.


What is your input source? Is it Antenna, HDMI, Component or Composite.
The Autotune is only for Antenna input when connected to an indoor or outdoor antenna, if you are connected to a cable or satellite STB then that is what will do the tuning.

I have a PHILLIPS DV3 47 inch smart TV. But I cannot hook up to my dvd recorder


The blue/red/green aren't a component signal which is why they don't match and are causing the no signal message. The dvd recorder is most likely only giving out RGB which you need to plug into those RCA sockets or SCART/Peritel connector if you have that.

I had the same problem, no sound from tv to the sound bar. I hooked up the output for sound from the sound source, your cable tv box or satellite receiver and ran it to the sound bar, and then received sound.

I just bought an westinghouse 42'' led tv and im trying to hook my surround sound and my xbo 360 to it and i keep getting an no signal message everytime and it worked on my 42'' sanyo lcd...


Sounds to me like you are trying to use a composite hookup or a generic HDMI cable. If you get the official Microsoft HDMI connector it also includes phono audio outputs and an optical audio out for 5.1 surround,

I plugged in the normal 3 Video inputs and it still doesn't work.


More info is needed, please. When you say 3 video inputs, what are you referring to? I believe the Sanyo has the HDMI, RGB/YPbPr component video, S-video component, RCA composite video and Coaxial connections, though I'm not sure how many of each. So lets start with the best quality to least.

HDMI: This is one cable that provides both audio & video and produces the best picture quality. It comes in different lengths and is a wide, flat connection. A must for 1080p resolution signals.

Component video, RGB or YPbPr analog component cables: 5 separate RCA cables, 3 of which are video that separate the video signal & 2 audio cables. The 3 video cables are generally red, green and blue (RGB) or marked individually with the letters Y, Pb/Cb & Pr/Cr . The audio cables are red & white. You may see these on the back of DVD players often. They will carry a signal up to 1080i but not 1080p.

S-video component: One cable for video, it is a round connection with several pins in it and will only plug in one way. You must use 2 RCA cables for audio with this cable, red & white again.

Composite video: 3 separate cables; Red, White & Yellow. Red & White are audio, left and right while yellow is video.

And finally there is coaxial which it the cable that is identical to the cable from the pole/ cable box or your dish. It is the poorest quality.

What can happen is you are using 3 standard RCA cables and have them plugged into the component input & they will not carry the signal, or one end in component input and the other end in the composite output or vice versa. Another is that you have the wrong input selected on the menu. Check all your cables and connections, plus the input you have selected on the TV itself.

No Signal on DVD to Samsung 2333HD Monitor/TV


I had the same problem connecting the monitor to my Philips DVD player. After a couple days trying to determine if the monitor or cable was bad, I went to the Philips user manual and found that the Video Output setting had to be specifically changed to YPbPr/Component (which I needed). Apparently the player sends the signal in only one format at a time. Hope this helps.

Proron pltv-4250 no signal


THE BEST INPUT ON YOUR SET IS THE HDMI INPUT.2ND THE COMPOSITE INPUT. 3RD THE COMPONENT INPUT. AND 4TH THE ANTENNA INPUT. MOST DISH BOXES HAVE AT LEAST THE COMPONENT OUTPUT. YELLOW IS THE VIDEO AND RED AND WHITE FOR AUDIO. USE RCA CABLES TO GO FROM BOX TO LCD SET. ON THE DISH BOX YOU CAN GO FROM ANTENNA OUT TO THE CABLE OR ANTENNA IN ON THE LCD. SWITCH TV TO CHANNEL 3. AND TURN YOUR DISH BOX ON.
