Hi,

I have a Sony PFM-42v1 and it does the same thing, look in your tv menu for picture inversion, usually under screen saver. What it actually does is reduce the chance of screen burnin. By reversing the image it sort of resets the hot areas, brightest colours and the cooler areas being dark colours, switches them around ( negative ). This cools the hot spots and heats up the cold spots.

There should be a option to turn it off, mine and I guess yours as a default is ON, mine has the ON, timer and OFF options.

Hope this helps, please let me know if you need more info.

I have a sony pfm-42b1 plasma tv with 2 vga inputs an 1svideo input.. i want to connect my ps3 hdmi cable to the vga input. i purchased the cable but nothing shows.. thanks for your help


you should change it from hdmi to cable. You can do it only on a hdmi tv when you do that you can use it for the pfm-42b1e because i had the same problem too. when you plug your ps3 to a hdmi tv you go to settings-display settings- video output settings than you change it to av multi. After you do that you can use it on pfm-42b1e

Ours does the same but resets if you switch off at the plug (not if you put on standby).
Look at the clock next 2 times it happens, ours happens at 8 minutes to 11 every night. No idea why!

Your best bet, if you have ther board out yourself is PTS Electronics. Techs even feed these guys because they're well known for their quality of work and reasonable price. If you're looking to have a shop there bring the whole set in and work on it maybe this will help.
