Question about Zenith Z32LZ5R 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
Also, I've unplugged all of the cables, do I actually need to replace them? Before purchasing a new TV, I'd like to make sure it is the TV. Thanks.
Check all the inter-connection cables between TV and cable box. If there is any loose contacts to these cables, the problem you reports here can occur. Check them well first. If all of them found OK, the main board [digital section] to your TV should be checked. This is a skilled work, and cannot be done by user. Contact any experienced service technician in this case.

update: Well, we ended up calling the repair man and we had a bad Y-sustain board and also a bad Z-sustain board. According to the guy who fixed it, it was due to over use of the TV and using main power button instead of shutting off through the cable remote. 650.00 later and a few weeks later, we now have a fixed plasma. No real suggestions on how to get more life out of the new boards.

You will want to use an HDMI connection for you cable. Check your cable box, it will be marked HDMI and probably have a cover snapped over it. Depending on the available inputs on your set and outputs on your other devices you may have to use component connections for your dvd player. Those will be marked "Y, Pr, and Pb" and will be RCA type connectors. (like the old stereo speaker hook ups). Check you cable box for an optical audio output and your surround sound unit if any or TV for optical audio inputs. They will be marked appropriately and may have some type of cover over them. Use that for your sound if you can. All of these cables can be obtained at your local electronics store or Walmart. You will want to measure all of your distances to insure the cables you buy are long enough to make the connections. Also be very careful of the optical cable. Don't kink it or fold it, they can be damaged internally and are fairly expensive. Lastly make sure all of your equipment is plugged into a good Surge suppressor not just an ordinary plug strip. A $20 investment for power conditioning can save you a lot of headaches down the road. I hope this helps you, Good Luck.

You have to plug your DVD cables into the "input" connectors on your tv. Input audio and input video. Also there is either a switch on the back of your tv or in your menu where you have to choose "component video". Or it might be labled Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc. You might have both a switch on your TV and a choice in your menu. If so, both have to be set to "component Video. Sometimes on the back of your set, the switch is not labeled. It just has "arrowed" lines coming from the different switch positions and leading to the "outputs and inputs" on the back of the set. Set the switch so that the lines lead to the red, blue and green INPUTS on the back of your set. Your problem is not serious. It is just a matter of "telling" your TV that you are using "component video". Component video is when you are using the red, blue, and green inputs. It is also possible that your DVD has another output besides "component out" and also has a switch. Make sure this switch on the back of your DVD is in the "component OUT" position. Your DVD might also have a connector on the back that looks like connectors on the back of VCR's and most TVs. This is an "F" connector and the cable has to be screwed on. It's just like a cable tv cable. Screw a cable into the "out to tv" on the back of your DVD and screw the other end of the cable into the "RF" INPUT (or cable input) connector on the back of your tv. Be sure to look ALL through your TV menu and DVD menu. The DVD sets to "component OUT" and the TV sets to "component IN". Hope this helps.
