    Panasonic DMR-EX77EB connected to Toshiba 37AV505DB TV when switching the TV to HDMI port the TV switches immediately but the Panasonic can take at least 30 seconds, The following happens upon switching Panasonic display flashes HDMI for about 3 seconds then settles on channel number. The TV screen toggles between blue screen (no signal) to blank screen at least 6 times before picture and sound are displayed.

    Todate I have tried all posible screen resolutions, 2 different HDMI leads. and via the Panasonic remote control looked through every setting and tried various combination.

    I have also tried a Toshiba DVD player on HDMI and the TV and player switch immediately.

    I get the impression that the Panosonic HDMI port does not activate until it recieves an HDMI signal from the TV.

    I have a Panasonic DMR EX 77EB which has worked without problems on an older type TV for 6 months but now I have a new TV, Toshiba Aquos with full HD capabilty. When I connect TV and DVD with HDMI there is no picture or sound at all. When I connect with SCart and go into set-up on DVD eg
    Functions / To others / Setup / Connections / HDMI settings

    the HDMI settings are 'grayed out' and cannot be changed. Where am I going wrong?

How to connect viera link

What is Viera Link? Viera Link allows the control of other Panasonic home AV devices via the television remote control.

By pressing the Viera Link button on the television remote, it is possible to turn on and navigate the menus of other Viera Link equipment. Please note, Viera Link requires an HDMI connection between the television and the external source.

More control functions have been added with each new generation of Viera Link compatible products. However, it is important to note that the newer functions only work if both products are from the same year of manufacture. Therefore, if an older source is used with a newer year of television, only the older functions common to both years will work.

I had a same issue with my Panasonic TH-42PV500B plasma television. I tried everything which is written above and can be found on different websites. Finally I decided to replace the HDMI Board itself. I was able to buy a used one on ebay, it was only 13 pounds with postage.It is relatively easy to remove this HDMI Board. You should just unplug the TV and remove all of the screws form the back which are fixing the back of the TV to the frame. There are plenty of screws. You should remove all of them! Remove the backplate of the TV. After this you can remove another metal plate from inside, which covers this HDMI board - 4 screws. After you can remove the HDMI Board - only one screw holding it to the main board. Replace the new one back and put back the cover plate and the back of the TV. And it is working. 10_19_2012_3_10_22_pm.png Panasonic 42 Plasma TV TH-42PV500B Part HDMI Board Order number: TNPA3626

We have connected our asus K52J lap top to our panasonic viera plasma TH-P50V20A via a HDMI cable . We have picture ON THE TV but sound from our lap top only. How do we get sound from our TV

Hi there
I've just looked at that TV model, and it appears that your TV does not support a separate audio connection for HDMI sockets. It also appears that your laptop model has a issue with sending audio via HDMI. Are you running Linux, or windows?
Hope this helps

Can i connect my panasonic viera th-42px8ou plasma tv,to my vista desk top? my tv has hdmi on it,my vista tower also says it has 1 hdmi connector on the back of it

You can buy an HDMI to DVI adapter (around 20$) to connect your HDMI computer cable to your TV. You will need separates audios cables, right and left, to bring the sound to the TV.
