Panasonic Viera Link stop working

I have a TH-42PX80E with SC-PT460 Home Theater system. The Viera link has been working without problems until recently. When I press the ''Viera Link'' button on my remote I get the message ''Function not available''.
I have checked all setup parameters and everything is set according to manual. I use a HDMI cable connected to HDMI 1 on TV. I can see DVD etc. without problems on HDMI 1 connection.

    Well, it turns out there's a simple fix for this! (Ihave the exact same set up as you by the way).

    It's simply a case of the old I.T. solution of "turn it off and then back on again".
    Turn off ALL of your kit, ie the tv AND the AV gear, at the plug socket.
    Leave it off for a few minutes.
    Turn on the AV GEAR FIRST and then the TV.
    All should now work properly, it did on my kit anyway!

    Hope this helps.

This is a problem with your components. You can have the components replaced with a new set which may be expensive, or live to learn using av3 only with a switch system.

How do I change the regional coding on my Panasonic SC-PT460, I cant play half my library of movies. -Janus-


After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to
try here or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

Just a thought.

No sound through the Panasonic cinema surround sound on TV


Had a similar problem mate. I solved it by connecting the tv to the PT460 system with a scart lead. You then have to have the AV channel selected on the PT460 system to listen to the tv. You will always have to have the AV channel on the PT460 selected to listen to any sound transmitted through the tv - be it playstation/xbox or any other device that you may connect in the future with HDMI leads or otherwise. Hope this helps

Cant get my viera linked panasonic to play through surround sound


I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.


For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer

SET UP VIERA LINK PANASONIC PT960


Can you explain a bit more please. What exactly is the problem? Are you getting any picture or audio through to the TV? Are you getting any picture or audio through to the home theatre? Have you got the home theatre setup via HDMI? Have you connected the audio from the cable to the home theatre via optical or phono? What model is your LG LCD HDTV?
I already have the manual in front of me for your home theatre system. If you can give me some more information I can help you out.
Thanks.
