Sony pfm 42 v1 plasma. the switch seems to have stope working? Used to have a red light on standby & green when powered on. Now nothing at all


It might be the problem of your receiver (the one which is inside the television). Check whether it is working and if not get it replaced.

Sony Tv PFM-42 V1 doesn't show any picture or tv menu


This is a common problem with plasma tvs You did not mention whether you could generate any sound like through your dvd player or something like that. Whether you have audio or not makes a difference on which board may be causing you the problem. Just because it does not have a picture for tv viewing does not mean it won't produce some type of sound through your av1 input. Try it and I'll try to be more specific.

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

PFM-42V1 has no ability to receive channels through aerial / cable.
You can hook direct video cables from dvd player, vcr, PC etc.

Sony Flat Panel tv with no Picture


Flat panel TV's typically do not have "bulbs," but rather backlighting.  Plasma displays are especially touchy during movement.  I would suggest checking your warranty status, as it's probably not something you can easily repair.  If you wanted to take on the repair yourself, be careful not to lay down the screen, as it will drastically shorten the life of the Plasma display.  I would start with checking the system boards for possible damage, since you did hear a "click," It was probably a fuse, chip, etc.
