SOURCE: Maxent 42" Plasma TV takes 3 - 5 minutes to sync after turning on

I had the same issue....thankfully, I had purchased an extended warranty from Best Buy...I had been in a panic, because I NEVER thought I would pay a grand for a tv, but I LOVE it...anyway.....I had the "Geek Squad" come to look at the tv....the tech took 30 secs....there is a problem with your Y-SUS (Y-sustain board)...it will need to be replaced...and...the tech called another tech, and he advised that the Z-SUS be replaced as well (apparently he had to go back to the same home after a Y-SUS replacement to change out a failed Z-SuS).....retail on Y-SUS is about $300...ebay has them for less than half that, if you think you can do it yourself...keep in mind that "Maxent" is a Zenith/LG product, so finding parts might be a challenge if you base it upon Maxent....hope this helps!!

IGO tv connected with dish sound come from tv but pictur not show only blue color show


Component RCA Connectors are RED, BLUE, GREEN for picture. Sound is RED and WHITE. The red and white for sound work the same with the YELLOW that does picture. If the RED, BLUE, GREEN are in the wrong order you will get a blue or green picture. For the sound, try the other red and white connectors nearby. Make shore the right red connectors are connected correctly for sound or picture. Otherwise there could be a cable fault or a TV fault. If you get the picture right but not the sound, connect the sound into a stereo.

I have a Sony model KF-50WE610 tv. We moved it today and once it was set back up the picture is black and white. I have checked all connections, cables, and signal and nothing makes a difference. It is...


The cables connected are in the wrong spaces, either on the receiver or the television. Using component style cables, Green, Red, Blue for video, and White, Red for audio, one of the video cables is in the wrong spot. Using RCA type cables, Yellow for video, White, Red for audio, the Yellow is inserted into a green component somewhere. The ViP 722 is compatible with HDMI, which has a much higher resolution (1080p max with the ViP 722) and a better refresh rate (the ViP 722 max is 30Mhz), and as there is only one cable for both audio and video, is much easier to use, if your TV is compatible, you should look into using HDMI instead,

I have a flat screen and Dish Network for my cable. I switched the "source" to watch a dvd, and when I switched it back to channel 3 I have a blue screen. cable (dish network) is on and working....


It all depends on how your dish cable is connected to your television. The possibilities I can think of would be by composite cables (not HD)--these cables are the yellow red and white combo. It could also be component--the video cables are the blue, green and red. The other possibility is a single HDMI cable which looks like a rectangle and delivers both the video and the sound from the cable source to the T.V. as one cord. Depending on which of these you are using to output the signal from the cable box to the T.V. will determine which "source" you should select when trying to watch tv. Hope this helps!

NO VOLUME AT ALL - GREAT PICTURE We have Dish


You will want to start by unplugging the receiver for ten aseconds. If this doesn't resolve the issue check the cable from the receiver to the TV if it is a single cable with a flat end then just ensure both ends are firmly connected. If you are using component cables with 5 colored ends (red, green, blue, white, and red) make sure the red and white audio cables are connected on both ends. If this fails to resolve the issue reply to this and I will get back to you!

My picture is in green. The convergence seems to work just fine. Why would my screen be green?


You might have the yellow for video, white, and red for audio (composite connection) plugged into the component plugs green, blue, red for video, white, and red for audio (component connection) somehow combined together on the back of your TV to whatever source your watching.
It should be color to color from your source to your TV.
It's that or only the green plug is plugged in for the component video. Hope this helps.

The screen displays in black and white


Hi:
First thing is to determine what type of video connection you are using to watch TV.
If you use componet video cables to watch tv check teh green cable to make sure its connected also check the red and blue because if the green come off the picture will appear B&W

I have the dish network box which is HD although I can get a video feed on the television I get no audio


The first step you want to try is unplugging the receiver for ten seconds. After that check the cabling if you have component cables (red, blue, green, red, white) make sure the red and white are connected firmly. Also make sure they are connected right next to the red blue and green cables on the back of the TV. If you have an HDMI cable try connecting it to another port on the back of the TV. If that fails try replacing the cable.

I,ve connected my wii to the led tv using a wiii component cable(5 leads) but have used only 3 of them red green & blue 1,s leaving a red & white 1 left i have good picture but no sound help please


your cable is split into two different connections for your tv... the red green and blue cables are for HD only. They are their own little set. the yellow cable is your video cable for normal tv's. the red and white cables are sound cables, also for normal tv's. I would unplug the red, green, and blue cables, and use the yellow, red (right sound), and white (left sound).

Good luck!

How to connect to TV


The Yellow/Red/White connectors are Composite+Audio
Yellow carries a composite signal and Red and White Carry left and right audio channels.

Red Green Blue Connectors are Component
Each coloured connector carries one 'component' of the picture

So yes, your extra set of red white yellow cables would be fine to use, just make sure you connect the same colors at each end red-red green-green blue-blue

However..... the red green blue only carry the video, you will still need to carry the Audio, this is usually done either by the red and white (L & R stereo) or your DVD may also have an optical or coaxial output to carry the sound. if there is no equivalent connector on the TV then you may be stuck swapping the red/white cables, usually though there would be 2 sets of red/white connectors one set to go with the yellow, one set to go with RGB.

I have picture by no sound. It's on video...DP42647 model We use dish network


I am going to assume this is a self install meaning you just got a new tv. If you have an HD receiver connected with red/blue/green wires ensure that you also use a set of red/white from the same TV output on receiver to the same audio input on the TV that you have the other wires ran to as the RED/BLUE/GREEN only carry a video signal. Some poor quality HDMI cables will also require the same red/white wires to gain audio as they do not always function properly. Other than that I can think of no other reason you should not be receiving audio other than internal speaker in tv being turned off. This usually is true when a surround sound is in use but the dish receiver was not integrated into the surround but the TV itself. I hope this is of some assistance to you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and if I can be of anymore assistance please let me know.
