Ghosting on the screen

I used to have a Replay TV box and there was no screen saver mode built into the software. The problem is that I fell asleep a few times with the box on and now there is a relay screen burnt into the screen, What do I have to do or replace to get rid of this message?

I'm sorry but the TV is damaged permanently. The only way to restore the screen is to replace the CRT tubes. Depending on the colours that burned the image, there's a rare chance it might not be all three of the tubes.
If you can put up with the burnt image it will fade with time but will never disappear completely.

I was using a hdmi cord to connect my laptop to my tv, and now all of a sudden my tv is getting no signal

Check the screen saver time out setting on your laptop.
Set the time setting that fits you.
Example: 3 hours for a typical long movie interval or no screen save.
Also,check the key sequence for toggle VGA and HDMI
After hibernate mode (check power saver setting page on Windows),the system will default back to built-in laptop display.
To prevent this from happening,set system to performance mode and do not hibernate.

My tv has sound but no picture its an akai model pdp4206em1

Try unplugging it for an hour or so or try change sources , if the computer ever fell asleep while it was plugged in it is possible it triggered a sleep mode in the tv. Most will do such a thing. It is doubtful that the computer caused any damage to it but i would advise against using a plasma tv as a computer monitor because burn in WILL eventually occur with a static image left on the screen constantly.

DVR won't set a timer to record a show

I have never encountered this but if you have enabled the standby and it still does not work you will need a new receiver. The feature was to enable a screen saver so that televisions screens would not be etched if it were left on and you fell asleep. My suspicion is that the DVR hard drive is corrupt giving you this false message.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Samsung flat screen tv 1 y.o. getting no picture just grey....t.v. says no input device "air 34" I have comcast cable. The other two tv's are getting perfect reception. I fell asleep with the tv on "sleep"...

Try to set up channel SEARCH again, this lets some tv`s find the cable channels and lock them in to the available one, also make sure the reception mode is on cable, "air 34" could be an antenna connection mode.
