Question about Dell W4201C 42 in. Plasma HDTV
Remote won't turn TV on, must use button on TV. After TV is on, remote works but if I use the power button on the remote it doesn't work. After trying it, no other remote buttons work. Any ideas. I did recently move the TV but I didn't drop it or anything. Also, I used to use component cables from my cable box. During this recent move I hooked it up with a HDMI cable, it worked fine for a few hours and then the picture started blinking from normal to black every few seconds. Sound was fine, switched back to component cables and it's fine, except for it still has the remote power button issue. The regular power button on the TV is also iffy on whether or not it will work.
Fot the most part, you have solved your problem (pow bd), The main bd may also need to be replaced as well. The is a signal upon powering up the system. the pow bd communicates with the signal board. The signal bd, also is responsible for ALL of your additional I/O lines. Between the two of these, + a firmware update, i think the tv will be just fine.

if I understand your question properly.. its because your direct tv output doesnt broadcast in high def so its giving you the standard tv definition inputs which are RGB or Component.so you will lose picture quality cos its running at fewer lines or pixels. hope this helps

Well, first you might want to try another hdmi connection behind your TV.If it appears to have the same message,you need to check your TV setup and be sure the HDMI video is active.
Secondly,go with the recommendation of the set top box.You will use component video cable to connect from your set top box component video output(Y PR PB) to your TV (Y PR PB) and see if that actually work.If so,just use the cable box for the time being and call your cable company for another cable box to replace this one!

No, it doesn't have a digital tuner. If you want to watch digital channels you will have to acquire a digital set-top box and connect it to the tv thru the av inputs.
