SOURCE: Help our sylvania 6842thg plasma

This is a common problem on Sylvania Flat Screen TVs (I have seen a lot of TV with this same problem), It is usually caused by a failure on the Power Board.

A new power board will cost about $150 - $190 USD. If you have experience on electronics repair and want to fix it by yourself, you can get the board through ebay or any online store.

A TV technician may charge about $280 - $ 400 to fix this issue (includin parts).

Read the user manual for warranty information. If the TV still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for assistance on repairs.

I've got my Dish cable to show on my Sylvania SDTV CR202SL8, now I need to know how to get my Playstation 3 to show on the tv. I don't have the original remote, so I'm using the Dish remote.


your ps3 is probably sat to HDMI or SCART, to change this: turn off your ps3 and hold the powerbutton when your turning it on. this will cause the ps3 to change between HDMI and scart, thats probably why it wont find a source.

Bob Newell. I know it's been a couple years since you posted this, but I have one of these TV's now, and am looking for that firmware upgrade. But I can't seem to find it at the Sylvania website. Is it still there, and if so, can you point me to the right location?

Sylvania tv says format not supported when ps3 is plugged into it, just happened use to work fine


If it's one of the original PS3's (might be the same for the new) you can hold the power button down when you're powering it up until it beeps and then let go of the power button. This will make the PS3 search for what video devices are plugged in. If you're using the HDMI it will say "An available HDMI device was detected. Do you want to output video and audio using HDMI?", and you wan to say YES. Then it will automatically set the resolution (should set to 1080i) and give you 30 seconds to confirm the video works by saying YES again. This TV will not support a 1080p output so if you try to change the PS3 to 1080p resolution it will not work.

I have also received this message when I had a bad HDMI cable.

Best wall mount for sylvania 6842thg plasma


To make it simple: Mounts go by the size of the TV.
You have the choice to get a standard mount that can only swing or a mount that can swing and tilt or even extend. Plasma TVs are a bit heavier, than LCDs therefore, you need a solid mount. There are wall mounts and ceiling mounts. Mounts can be purchased from Home Depot, Lowe's and best buy, they can also be bought on line. If you buy it from a local store and does not fit, you can take it back the next day, an option you wont have if you buy online.

Good luck
