Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Panasonic Plasma tv model TUPT 700U approximately 8 years old. This particular model has a separate digital media processor with DVI cables connected to the TV. All inputs are through the separate media box. I have Fios hooked up to one input with RCA and digital audio cables. I tried to hook Fios up with HDMI. My TV only has one HDMI input, so my intent was to use an HDMI splitter and then Apple TV, but the screen only showed an image on the top couple inches. The rest of the screen was black. I plugged the RCA cables back in and for about 3 seconds, I had the same result on the screen, but it then reverted back to a full screen.
Sorry but it's time to shop for another tv the cost of repairing would cost almost as much as a new unit.

Sounds like the HDMI port on the monitor has been shorted out.
There are very small fuses on the video board that can be changed, but they are fiddly and you may end up doing more harm then good if you are not sure what your doing.
The fuses are actually soldered to the board...it's not a case of pop one out and pop one in like the glass type.
Hope it helps =)

The cable box is probably outputting a resolution the monitor is not compatible with. Computer monitor and television resolutions are usually different, and not cross compatible in some cases.
For example, wide screen monitors are usually 16:10 aspect ratio, while TV is usually 16:9 aspect.
The AL2216wbd is a 1680x1050 display, while HD TV is either 720p (1280x720) or 1080i (1920x1080).
If your cable box is set to 1080i that would be too high for the monitor. You will need to set it to output at 720p, and even then you will probably get a vertically stretched picture since the monitor has a taller aspect.

I had a similar problem whereas my monitor went to sleep mode after a few minutes. I'm running an HP LP 2065 in dual mode with another HP flat screen. However, I did resolve the issue after resetting the output settings.
How to do that:
