Connect cable from cable box (both Video and Audio out) the other terminals to dvd (both Video and Audio in). After this select from video the line, i.e. L1, L2, etc. if you don't know exactly what line you shou;d choose, try them starting with L1. you have to be sure you tuned the TV to the right chanel to be able to watch the DVD player.

You will have to connect your DVD player to the plasma TV, not the cable box. The cable box (or most cable boxes) have video outputs only. The same is true for the DVD player: it outputs the video to the tv.

Look in your DVD manual for scenarios for connecting your player to the tv.

Fix tv picture

If the TV is receiving its signal from a cable TV box or DVR then you need to find out if the problem is in the TV or the cable box/DVR. Connect a different source to your TV such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a DVD movie. If the problem occurs again it suggests the TV needs repair. If the TV works OK when playing a DVD movie then that suggests that your cable box/DVR needs repair or replacement.
If your TV is receiving its signal directly from an antenna or cable outlet on the wall then you should try replacing the cable wire from the wall to the TV with a new wire. If that doesn't help then your TV probably needs repair or replacement.

Just got a hitachi 42hdt50m model plasma and cant figure out how to hook up cable. we have no cords that came with it. what do we need

You're going to need a coax cable about the length of the distance from your TV to your cable source, either the wall outlet or your digital cable box provided by your cable provider.

For good measure, get yourself an HDMI cable if you have certain digital cable boxes, DVD or Blu-Ray players. check out for inexpensive cables. Don't get suckered into the expensive cable.

Good luck.

How do i get a picture thru component 2 so i can get 1080i quality. i only get a picture thru component 1.

You would need to unplug the input cables in the TV and move them to component 2 on the back. Assuming your input is at 1080i in the first place (ie, the cable box or digital satelite signal is coming in at the proper resolution). One way to check is to connect an external DVD player to the component 1 input and see if the picture is higher quality than the signal from the Cable/Satelite. Not sure changing to component 2 is going to make a difference. Good luck and let me know what happens!

Cant hook dvd/vcr to my cable box the manual says I need a extern

The cable box IS an external tuner.  You should connect the video output (either S video, HDMI, or component video) of the cable box to the video input of the DVD.  Then connect the audio output of the cable box to the audio input of the DVD via stereo RCA cables.  If your tv monitor has multiple inputs (ie: video 1, 2, and 3...) connect the video and audio output of the DVD to your tv monitor using an alternate video input (if cable box goes into your tv thru video 1, connect the DVD to video 2).  If your cable box only has one output, or your tv has only one input, then just connect your cable box to the DVD as above, and connect the DVD to your tv.
