Try identifying which caption is from the TV and which is from the cable box by turning the TV Closed Caption on and off while you have to sets of captioning. This will show you which closed caption never turns off.

We have bought a Panasonic Viera 32 which was a display model and we cannot get the hd and the picture to be set up. How can we start again?


1. Before we begin: First you need an HD source (HD Cable, Blu-Ray Player, HD Media Player) and HDMI cables in order to receive HD signals. HDMI cables look like this:

captainhawk1_4.jpg
Do not buy them in a store, they will only rip you off and despite what the salesman will tell you, all HDMI cables are EXACTLY the same regardless of price and no, gold-plating does nothing to improve a signal. Digital signals are ones and zero's and are not subject to degradation that analog signals are. I would recommend going to Monoprice for all of your cabling needs and get at least a six-foot HDMI cable.
http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10240
If you are cable or satellite subscriber, please note that you MUST HAVE an HD Receiver, Convertor Box or DVR. If you were previously using a cable box, DVR or satellite receiver on a standard definition television, it WILL NOT receive HD signals and therefore you will not have an HD picture on your TV. Also, an upconverting/upscaling DVD player is not an HD source. DVD's are in SD and depsite the fact that they are upscaled, you cannot change the fact that they are recorded in SD and will display in SD on your screen despite that your TV will tell you that you are viewing a 720p (HD) picture. it will certainly look better than a non-upconverted/upscaled DVD but it won't be HD and you'll be able to tell the difference with HD Cable and Blu-Ray.
The only two ways to get HD channels without HDMI is by getting them over the air, and directly through your coaxial cable from your cable provider without the use of the box, however, not all Cable companies send the signal to be converted by the digital tuner in your television and if they do, they do not support it in their terms of service so if they stop working, you're out of luck. Also, whereas the your local provider may offer 50 -100 channels in HD through their HD Converter or DVR you will only be able to get the five major networks and Univision through the coaxial feed. The same goes for over the air HD signals via an antenna.
2. Connections: I'm proceeding from the premise that you have an HD source as described above with HDMI-Out ports. With your TV powered on and your HD Source powered on, connect one end of the HDMI cable to your HD source and the other end to one of the two HDMI-In ports on the back of your TV (your choice). Because it's an HDMI interface, the television will automatically detect the incoming HD source, turn on the HDMI port of the TV and set the resolution accordingly to the HD Source.
Keep in mind that as this a 16:9 Aspect Ratio display, some shows may still show up in the old 4:3 ratio with black bars on the sides of the picture (also, SD Channels will not appear in HD). This is completely normal and for the best viewing experience possble you should keep the black bars and not "stretch" or "zoom in" on those programs as doing this, despite filling your screen. will distort the images and just make them... well... ugly.
NOTE: If your HD source is a cable box, DVR or satellite receiver, you may have to go into the settings menu and into the Audio Menu of those units and set the audio to "HDMI-Out." Again, this should automatically happen when the connection is made but if you have no audio, that's the solution. Also, in the settings menu you will find the video menu and in that video menu you may find a resolution menu with a list of the different resolutions that the box/DVR will display (480i, 480p, 720i, 720p, 1080i). Uncheck all of them except for 720p (as that is your TV's maximum display resolution). If you don't, every time you change channels from a channel that displays in one resolution to a channel that displays in another, there can be a delay of up to 30 seconds. By keeping your resolution constant there is no delay when changing channels and the lower resolution channels are simply upconverted to 720p.
Your connections are now complete and you now have HD and are ready to go.
3. Some Final Thoughts: First, please keep in mind that your television has a maximum resolution display of 720p which means that Blu-Ray (1080p) and 1080i signals will be downgraded automatically for your TV. I want you to be aware of this just so you understand that even though you may have higher resolution sources, your TV's capability is what it is so don't be concerned if you are watching a Blu-Ray and your TV indicate that it's in 720p. The fact is that for any display under 40", you don't need anything above 720p as the screen size is too small for your eyes to see a difference. I personally have a 32" 720p Vizio and a 65" 1080p Mitsubishi and the Vizio looks great in 720p.
Here's the link to the manual and firmware updates for your set as well. Download the software updates to a USB Flash Drive, insert it into the USB port on your TV and follow the instructions.

Lastly, I highly recommend you getting a Blu-Ray calibration disc with color filters for your TV (if you don't plan on getting Blu-Ray then get the DVD). They are about $20 on Amazon and though they take about an hour to get the hang of, they will help you achieve the absolute best picture possible for your new TV. TV's are preset with settings to make them pop-out in store displays and they are not optimal for home viewing. I waited a year to get one for my 65" and when I did it was like I got a brand new TV. The difference is outstanding and it's a small investment to make for what a professional will charge $200 - $300 to do. Here's a link for both DVD and Blu-Ray calibration discs.

I know this tv has digital capabilities, so i don't need to get the digital box, what do i need to watch my local channels? i have directv but does not include local channels (ie. fox, abc, nbc).


Hello


To tune the local channels do the following.

1 Press the MENU key on the remote control to
display the Main menu.

2 Use the CURSOR "UP" or "Down"
keys to highlight
Manual Channel Search. Press ENTER.

3 Use the CURSOR "Up" or "Down"
keys to select Cable,
Air (Antenna), or Digital Add-On.

After the search is complete, the HDTV will exit the
menu system and return to normal TV viewing.

IMPORTANT FACT: This HDTV maintains only one database

of digital channels. Therefore, when you search for

cable channels, the database of antenna digital channels

will be deleted. You will only be able to receive those
ClearQAM channels your cable company provides.

NOTE:"Not available" will appear on the screen

when an option is unavailable.

HDMI cable hooked up, now CLOSED CAPTIONING is stuck on!


It has got to be the box. I would try to contact Scientific Atlanta if any way possible. The TV doesn't choose what inputs it shows CC.In other words, it would show it on all Inputs if it was the TV. Good luck and Thanks

Blank screen with other displays still working


1. By View your DVR, Do you mean you can actually see a picture?
2. By "Switch Channels", are these channels being tuned by the TV Tuner?

Your LCD Panel is OK Since you have a Picture (input display in right corner)
If you can see a picture with your DVR, VCR, DVD or any external source then your TVs Video Processing is OK....if not you will probably need to replace the responsible PWB for this function
If you can see a picture with the external sources and only the TV's Tuner is not showing Video, The PWB responsible for Tuning within the TV should be replaced.

Also, if all problems are associated with only the DVR (I assume this is Sat or Cable), then it is most likely that this device is not functioning properly. Possibly lost signal or deauthorized.

Channel displaying on Samsung 32"LCD TV


Most remote controls have a "display" button. Pressing that is what gets that channel number on the screen. Try pressing it again and the display should turn off. On some brands the display may cycle through various combinations (channel number only, channell and time, etc.) before it goes away, so it may take more than one press of the button.

I have the same problem. The next stage is that the picture won't come on at all and the blue light will constantly blink. I think the light source is bad. Noit sure though.
