How do i get my Panasonic ct1388yd to register it's picture and its sound of my game console

I have a panasonic ct1388yd monitor in my room. I have been trying to play some of my game console's on the tv (gamecube, ps1, sega genesis). I realized that the tv use's coaxial insted of rca so i ran out to radio shack to get a rf modulator. when i got back and tried to use it i realized that the tv didnt use f-coaxial, but it used bnc coaxial. So i ran out to radio shack again to buy a f female to bnc male. i got back and added the adapter on the end of the f-coaxial cable. i then plugged in the cable to the back of the tv, turned on the modulator, turned on the tv to the channel i put the cables in, checked to see if everything was plugged in correctly, and then turned on the game console. Nothing showed up on the screen, i turned on and off the tv and game console to see if anything was wrong and still no response. So i did everything i could do I changed the channel that the cable was plugged into, i changed the adapter i was using (i bought a silver and gold plated adapter), i changed the modulator from channel 3 to channel 4 (there's an optiong on the box), i did EVERYTHING i could but still no response. I have seen they have rca female to bnc male adapters, so maybe the problem is that i'm just using to many adpaters

The modulator is outputting channel 3 or 4 analog not digital. Channel 3 digital is not channel 3 analog. You have the opposite problem of those trying to receive TV on an older Analog TV. You need to rescan your channels to add the analog input. Assuming you TV still scan for those like mine does.

P.S. - BNC!!! Really?? I only see those on security systems these days.

Testimonial: "thanks for the help although im not quite sure I can do that on my tv. when I go to the "setup" type screen I am presented with 3 options screen, setup and timer (or maybe it's clock). in setup I get 3 options indioma/langue, cc mode and other adjustment's (which only presents me with "auto power on or off". In timer there are 3 options clock set, sleep and timer. And in screen there is 1 option with 5 options inside of it there is color, tint, brightness, picture, sharpness and normal (yes or no). there is no way that I can see of that can change it from analog to digital (or visa versa)"

    Look under Broadcast and/or Channels. It will not be under the main settings or picture or sound.

    sorry i realized that it's an old monitor, not a t.v. (maybe thats why it wouldnt show anything)

    Yes, that would be the problem, monitors have no tuner.

I was trying to connect my ps2 with Panasonic vieara tv but picther is in black and white and no sound

A black and white picture suggests you are trying to use a composite video input but the TV may be NTSC format while your game is PAL, or the other way round. Use a game with the correct format or use the separate RED, GREEN & BLUE inputs (may require a different type of lead).

Hi - we have problem with Viera tv. no sound or pic. switch on green light briefly. then straight to red light flashes 4 times then 3 sec interval then repeat. tv is just over 13 months old. any ideas.?...

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Damp Cloth
  • Fuse
  • TV Remote Control
  1. Ensure the power cable is securely fitted to a wall output if you can't get your Panasonic LCD TV to power up. Try testing the wall outlet with another appliance to make sure there is not electrical fault with the outlet itself. If there is still no power, a blown fuse may need replacing.

  2. Switch off the color correction option if you are using HDMI cables and the displayed image has unnatural colors. For instance, if a picture area that should be red is blue or green, then the color correction option may be the issue. Press OK on your remote control. Now access the Other Adjust option and scroll down to the Color Correction option. You can now turn the setting off, which should restore normal image quality.

  3. Press the Mute button if you can't get your Panasonic LCD television to produce sound. This may have been pressed in error, cutting off the sound. Check the volume settings on any other devices, such as a games console or DVD player, that are connected to your LCD TV. If the volume is set to low on such a device, it can limit the sound output on your TV.

  4. Check that the air vents at the lower rear of your Panasonic LCD TV are free of dirt and debris. Dirt can accumulate in these areas, causing the cooling function to under-perform. Panasonic LCD sets come with built-in safety features that shut off the power if your set becomes too hot. Clean the air vents with a damp, rather than wet cloth. Dust and vacuum the room regularly to prevent the problem from recurring.
