Question about Akai PDP4295ED 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
You don't mention using your SOURCE button to select HDMI.You have to put your akai in the right source selection by using the source button on the remote or the source button on the right side of the TV. I hope this helps. SW

SOURCE: hdmi receiver to hd plasma tv
1. You cannot get and HDMI and component on one cable. One is anaglod, and HDMI is digital. Use the component, the difference isnt. They are both HDTV compatible signals. S-Video is terrible, its really no better than the old-fashioned coaxial cable. After you connect the two, be sure you go into the settings on your home theater and set the output to component, progressive scan, and the the resolution your TV supports. The resolution is clearly stated in the user manual and on the box. It is probably 720p or 1080i. (Dont worry, most HD devices will revert back to the settings if they dont work. So if it goes blank or you see undesired picture, just wait up to 15 seconds and it will revert your settings. Once you are successful, the menu will ask you if you can see the picture, use the remote to select yes.)
2. The remote came possibly with an auto scanning feature, but at least has a code entry mode to program
your brand of tv to work with your remote. Look at the list of codes based on category and brand in the documentation for the home theater system. Use all the codes available for your brand unil the tv responds to the code you entered. This is very brief but the manual has very specific instructions on what to press, step by step.
And the last question is absolutely yes, the picture is about 6x better than the regular tv standard which is 480i
480i is an interlaced picture, and its 320x480 dots of color to display your picture, interlacing is basically using one horizontal line to act as 2 by quicly alternating what it draws twice per frame. Thats why standard tv seems to "jiggle" in place
Progressive Scan has a solid image, every time, that automatically doubles your quality. Definitely, you want your resolution to be as high as the tv supports and you will be satisfied.

Any HDMI cable manufactured in the last couple of years should all be HDMI 1.1 compliant, your problem is most likely the logic board in the TV itself or the HDMI connector on the logic board has a bad connection..
Have you tried hooking-up a standard DB15 VGA cable to the AKAI TV and your laptop?
If this works your problem is in the TV and will most likely have to be repaired to receive the HDMI signal since your Panasonic DVR and your laptop are not recognized by the HDMI input on the TV.

How much experience do you have with electronics repair? I have repaired mine from this problem but the solution would be difficult to describe here. If you a patient I may be able to help but I'm afraid to write this here for fear of injury to somebody.
