Re: Phillips plasma tv - how to darken dislay while cable...

The only thing you can do is unplug your video out lead from your dvd /cd player while playing it, also check your menu on your sony to see if it has a blank raster setting to activate. Second, why would you want to listen to a cd thru your tv, unless you don't have a stereo or surround sound system to play it on, of which I would definately have anyway. Hope this helps...

Fix blue screen av27870

Hi. Switch off (mains switch) the VCR. Then see if you can change channels with your TV remote. Blue screen mostly means that no channel has been programmed. If there is , you should at least have the sound. So, if you have sound, there is an internal problem in the TV. If no sound appears, try to get into setup mode (button Menu)
and programm your channels. I suppose there is signal on your normal areal connection. Check this out with another TV set, or use the tuner from you VRC. I know there are a lot of possibilities, but you can sort this out, step by step. Good luck.

DELL 42 inch Plasma TV

I have a 42" LG LCD TV and just experienced this today. Watching cable, then the screen went to black, but audio continued. I pressed the guide button on my remote and pic came on with my guide menu. But then went to black again 10sec later and has remained that way for nearly an hour. Tried switching off both cable box and TV, disconnecting and reconnecting cables, but no luck. Finally unplugged mains, waited a minute, then turned back on. Everything seems normal now after the reboot. Phew.
