Question about Vizio P2 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

New tv, out of box, nothing.

Just got my tv via fedex.  Took it out of the box, set it up, turned it on, and nothing.  Reading through the instructions and it seems that a start up menu should have appeared, but as I said I only have a blank black screen.  Any solutions?  Help!  Thanks!

How do I turn my Vizio E470VL CC off?


CC is either coming from the box or the set--if grayed out on set means that option is closed---you have to look for it in the set and the BOX menu--have you tried removing box from use?

Your cable box most likely has a setting for audio HDMI such that HDMI sound is turned ON etc. rather than standard audio. Also check the TV settings for HDMI audio being set to ON. This should be a simple fix. HDMI audio usually is just a user setting adjustment and nothing more. Somewhere in your on-screen menus you should find the place to adjust HDMI audio.

The Sabrent TV-PC85 converter box does not work when I connect it to my laptop. How do I fix this? I tried connecting it in every possible way, but still nothing.


That is for converting the VGA output to TV formats. The box is powered via a USB cable. You also need to use the keyboard command to output via the VGA connector - varies among laptop manufacturers, but is usually a function key mixed with the F1-F12 at the top of the keyboard.

How do I play my Sanyo VPC-CG6GX recording on a TV & make copies


I was just looking in the Sanyo CG6 Users Manual for you about how to watch your videos on your TV.

I noticed on page 136 there is a TV Systems Setting, to choose between NTSC (american TV) and PAL (Asian or European TV). Perhaps it is set to PAL while you are in North America, or vice versa?

Otherwise, you seem to be on the right track; when the miniplug is in the camera and the yellow, white & red leads go to the TV, the camera should by using your tv instead of its little screen.

Lost the Welcome/Installation Menu


http://www.ezdigitaltv.com/support-files/ns_dxa1_manual.pdf

All you have to do is use the auto tuning function. Your remote control has a menu button, you can get to the feature via the on-screen menu.

If you press the menu button while the box is on and you see no menu, change your television's input to match what the box's output is.
