Panasonic plasma will not display signal

I have a panasonic TH-42PD25 and it will not display the signal from my PS2. i have tried switching from component to composite with no success. it will display the component signal from cable box and DVD but not the composite signal from the VCR. this is were it gets even stranger. if i activate PIP on the tv it will diplay, all be it with weird interference lines throughout. i have tried the PS2 on other TV's throughout the house and it works flawlessly on those. Thank you in advance, J. Steele

Re: panasonic plasma will not display signal

Ous worked a little odd like that also. Even the part about the pip. Try to hook the ps2 through the cable box which then connects to the tv. This worked for our dvd and wii. Hope it works.

I need a Panasonic TV TH-42PD25 base stand! I've searched ebay, no luck. This might sound dumb, but can I use base stands from any of the other Panasonic 42" models?

You maybe lucky, but make sure the mounting holes on the stand matches your TV.
Alternately you can use a wall mounting and these have mounting holes that suit most TVs.

If you have changed your power supply then there is only one thing this can really be down to and i would say that is the main AV board as this sends a signal back to the power supply to tell it to turn on.
You AV board is the one with the scarts etc... This board also causes other problems of your TV powering up but no picture and no functions will work.
Change this board and im sure your problem will be solved.
There are no other boards in this set that control the start up side,so if you have changed the poiwer supply then it will be this board that needs replacing.
Hope this helps

Hello Ansarielectr, The Panasonic TH-42PWD7 is a professional grade progressive wide screen plasma display. It's not your normal HDTV. You probably already know this. This display requires a component /composite video terminal Board that mounts to slots 1 & 2, or slots 2 & 3. The item number for this component is TY-42TM6Y and can be purchased through the Panasonic support website here for about $270. Once you have this component, you can connect the TH-42PWD7 to a digital HDTV cable box to receive signals. Just make sure you're on the right input signal. Hope this helps.

Can you tell me what a Panasonic Viera Model TH-42PD25 would be worth today? I'm thinking of buying one second hand and aren't sure what I should pay. Thanks!


Second hand price is difficult to say, probably about $500. If the unit is in good shape it does not go down too much.
New RRP is over $1000, offers however start at about US$600 (about £400 in UK). Probably you can find a little cheper in Ebay.

Here a link: Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ80U

I suggest not buying a second hand plasma. Plasma TVs have a couple of weakness points, and often break down after few years usage. If you buy a second hand you do not have any info on its usage, and you may find yourself in need of changing a sustain board within the year.

Panasonic th-42pd25 pops on and. Will go to black

What do they mean , anyone can post, do they mean the part?

What is this part?

It sounds like Panasonic have admited it's a problem and they should fix it.
Is it under warranty or just out?
If it is just out, you should still be able to make a claim.

I hope I have helped you.

No viedo from dvd on tv screen, only audio

What type of connection are you using when connecting the DVD to the TV? (Component, Svideo, etc) You might want to first try a different connection from the DVD to the TV. Let me know if that works. Could be a bad cable also or a bad connection.
