Sony Plasma 106 cm

I have a plasma TV that is about two years old. It is connected to a HDD and Foxtel. Yesterday someone pressed something on one of the remotes and now we have no picture. There is sound and the channels change but no picture. Anyone know how to fix it?

Is it possible for a 10 year old planar plasma hd tv flat panel to emit fumes in a room. Like someone is smokeing?


Hello
No. Ofcourse not. What are you saying. Smoke over the TV!
Switch it OFF. There is something wrong with its internal circuit. Any capcitor or resistor burns. Cannot troubleshoot remotedly to this fault. Plasma TVs may heat up to an extent, and there will be fans at the top of them to **** out the heat produced while it works. Look, whther the fans are working. If not replace them or findount the reason.
A plasma Tv; whatever old it is; won't blow out smoke at all. OK.

Panasonic Viera link and Foxtel IQ


It is very likely that cross talk does corrupt the link but for Panasonic to "blame" anyone else is not very professional. Anyway, if it worked for 6 months perhaps disconnecting the Foxtel IQ and reestablishing the Viera link with the Panasonic devices then reconnecting the Foxtel IQ for another 6 months of happy viewing. This is not a permanent solution but the alternative doesn't seem to be an option.

DIGITAL/HD CHANNELS


hi there, i have the LG 50in Plasma and just updated the channel connection by doing the following:

1. Make sure your remote is in "TV" mode.
1. Press the Menu button.
2. Highlight "Auto-program" (Should be the first item on the Menu)
3. Scroll over to "To Start" and press OK.

The TV will automatically search for all available analogue, digital and HD signals and may take a few minutes.
Once complete, it will return to the last program you were on and you will find all channels available.

To check the guide or the time, you need to press the "guide" button. Make sure your remote is in "TV" mode. Alternatively, pressing OK at any time shows you the time and channel that you are on.

Hope that helps!

Hi Gerald P, just posted we experienced same problem. Few minutes later my husband has finally solved our problem. Don't know whether you can try the same. We had an old FOXTEL remote, got onto FOXTEL site and instructions how to program remote to control TV.

Dowloaded instructions with code for TV (after trying a few tries, the fifth code solved it). FOXTEL control needs to be programmed with the code suitable to TV. By pressing "ON", "AV", Red button and Select (at same time) then put code in. Turn "OFF" then "ON" see if code complies. If not try another one until you get it.

By using the FOXTEL remote on the "AV" you can change the channels on the TV and adjust volume up or down as well.

Hope this can help you in your situation. Glad we are up and running again. Bye

Buzzing and lines with Foxtel


I had this exact same problem, which was continuous pink bands or lines that rolled upwards, as well as a continuous hum or buzz. This problem was isolated to Foxtel; it didn't happen with the DVD. Differently, this problem happened immediately I changed from my really old TV to a new LCD TV. I experimented with the leads (Scart or otherwise) too without change. So I got Foxtel to come and have a look and the guy brought with him what he called an "isolator" which was a small box-shaped thing (about 3inches by 2 inches) that he added to the cable's its exterior connection point. Immediate and complete solution - no more lines or buzz!
