    Same problem. Seems to be a common fault. All I can find on net is LG say 'not a viable repair' which seems crazy! My set is just over 12 months old and this has been happening for months. LG are saying only 12 month warrenty so out of luck! I'll keep trying anyway.

Usually you would connect the SKY box to the DVD recorder and the DVD recorder to your TV, check you installation guides for setup instructions, which should show you a preferred layout diagram,

Hi , I recently had the same problem which I was determined to fix . So I did a few weeks of research to find that it was the Y SUS board which burns out. I'm sure you realized that the TV gets hot. Personally I think this is why. circuit boards don't like heat and I've learned that the cooling fans are a joke. I replaced the board and got my picture back. I proved the fan theory because after the screen started to act up. I placed a cooling fan near the vent holes on top and the problem cleared right up,It also helps if you lower the brightness which helps out on the heat situation.I will soon be adding a fan with a temp. sensor. This shoud help if your screen has lines when you initially turn the cool TV on.then I have Some other costless solutions. Hope this helped these are great TV's and like our cars we maintain them not throw them away..................................Mr Wiseman

Hello I have just got a Sony PFM 42VIE television. How do I connect it via cables to be able to pick up tv broadcasts vis a panasonic dvd recorder with built in freeview. Thankyou.


Hi, The simplest way to connect the dvd recorder to television will be via the coaxial connections(the cables with the screw on ends)- ( on dvd recorder one will say in from ant./cable the other will say out to tv ) this should enable you to change your tv's channel with your dvd recorder which is what you're after I assume. The best connection will be with the dvd recorders HDMI output or component video out, keep in mind they may only work for dvd viewing and not with tv channels, also hdmi ouput has audio built in-with component video you will need to connect dvds L/R stereo output to the audio input for component video ( these connectors are marked red,green and blue.) the stereo input will be red and white.Thanks and I hope this was helpful, good luck Prodzilla

I have a Sylvania 42 inch Plasma HD TV. It is 3


Hello

Before taking this to a local repair person, I suggest you check with your cable provider. See if they are having trouble with their HD transmission and then have them test your lines. Out here in Arizona with have constant problems with HD due to heat, rodents and poor installations. Your DVR only recorded the problems that were on your set. If these prove fruitless then take the TV to a reputable repair person.

Good Luck

Recording from LG 42pc1dv plasma tv to LG v782w VCR


If it does this on all channels then the video on your AV out from the TV is bad.

If it only happens with some channels then this is Macrovision protection working which will not allow you to record premium channels and any that are using this protection.
