Re: no picture on hdmi2

First of all connect the Direct TV box to HDMI 2 and see if it works there. If it does then the next step is to connect the DVD player to HDMI and see if it wors there. If not then connect the DVD player to the TV using the component inputs and if the DVD player works on those. If it does then maybe the HDMI interface in the DVD player no longer works as it needs to communicate with the TV.

Have a Panasonic TH-37PX60U tv - can I hook it up to a HD Satellite receiver - have a Bell hd but don't get any reception

Your plasma tv will display HD content when you connect an HD source (Blu Ray Disk, Sony PS3 / PS4 or Xbox 360, HD Cable Box, HD satellite, etc) via the TV's HDMI1, HDMI2, Component1, Component2 jacks or if you connect a UHF/VHF TV antenna (not cable box, etc.) to the "Ant" connector *and* you're close enough to a broadcaster with HD content to view.

Using any other input will produce only the lesser quality SD video signals. Review the manual - linked below - to help you connect the components you have.

No inputs

Feed the TV an external signal. That is, connect a DVD player to it, select the appropriate input selection to AV, and see whether there is picture and sound or not. If yes, check and replace the tuner. If not, check and replace the video IF stage.

I am having problem setting up my hdmi connection with my panasonic viera model TH-L32C10X2. i cant get it connected to my sony ps3. all cable connections are connected. set the tv to either hdmi1 or...

I do not own a PS/3, but I will try to help just in case you dont get another expert at this late hour....

It sounds like you need to save the changes on your PS/3. It is timing out and going back to default because the changes were not saved.

Hope I helped!

My picture scatters every minute or so and then comes right back....

The good: Deep blacks; decent video processing; accurate color that doesn't overaccentuate red; generous connectivity with two HDMI inputs; aspect-ratio control with HD sources.
The bad: Depth of black fluctuates depending on how much bright content is in a given scene; no PC input or picture-in-picture.
The bottom line: The Panasonic TH-42PX60U sets the standard for value among full-featured 42-inch plasmas.

PANASONIC TH-42PX60U 42 - half of screen not working

I had the same issue. I am going to replace my scan buffer boards. The upper half of mine works but the lower half is black so I would replace the lower Scan buffer board but in case of future issues I have ordered both upper and lower for $44.
The scan buffer boards are fairly simple to locate. Open up back of tv there are two biffer boards identical. The item or product code on them contain letters either SU or SD (Scan up and Scan down)Look up tv parts and item code you will find a place to order or just get the 1 800 number from tv manufacturer.
