Question about Panasonic TH-42PD25U/P 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

No analog channels

I have a 2 year old Plasma tv and the analog channels stopped working. I get sound but no video. The HDMI interface and the PC interface work fine. Panasonic told me that I should try to get the eprom reset. No one in my area seems to know how to do this or as in a previous post, someone suggested that the data from the software chip was removed and then re-installed. I have called about 5 different repair shops and all of them don't seem to know how to do this. Can someone tell me how this can be done? The only other option is to replace the board and that is close to $900 on this set.

Got a svga/hdmi cord and hooked up for my panasonic viera plasma to my computer but nothing shows on my component 2. also wondering if i'll need a cord for audio - i have double red/white/yellow...

You probably would need the extra audio cords seeings as normal svga connection won't suppost sound streaming. mixing and matching connections is always a pain to perfect.
If you are using the HDMI end on your plasma, then you will have the video show up on the HDMI channel. Then get an RCA red and white pair - 3.5mm jack and plug the jack into your PC's audio connection port and the RCA's into the Audio In ports in the back of the TV.
Once done the TV should display video and play sound from the PC. Failing this, try a few different configuration but always keep the audio plugged into the same Audio in port on the TV. Bacause then you at least know the channel that the audio works on ;D
Hope this helps mate, any more q's just ask!

Problem using Audio 3 sound inputs for HDMI video

Normally this problem is simply a matter of selecting the correct default audio playback device in the Windows control panel (sound option).
Check the Playback tab and set the default device to either DVI or HDMI.

Hi. You could look up reviews. I personally usually never offer advice on choices, because what I like, may not be what you like..its a matter of personal preference. But in this particular case, I'd go for Panasonic. Why? Better features, better service, easier availability of parts, and better resolution.Plus some nice features. If this answers your question, PLEASE don't forget to rate as fixed. I'd really appreciate it. Enjoy your new tube!!!
