Question about Hitachi P42H401 42 in. Plasma HDTV

Video settings reset everytime I turn off TV

It could be all of the settings but I just my surround sound for the sound.

But the video settings reset for each input everytime I turn off the tv to its factory default settings. I have to readjust the contrast, brightness, color, tint etc everytime I turn the tv on.

I am not turning it off at the master switch either, just the power button on the remote.
This is very annoying and makes it impossible to calibrate the set.

Hit the menu button on the remote. Click on Setup. Then click on Set The Quick Start Options. Make sure it is on. That should solve your problem.

Have no sound on my surround sound sony


Could be a number of things try each and test!

  1. Make sure the MUTE function has not been activated.
  2. Try turning up the volume level.
  3. Check that there are no headphones connected.
  4. Try setting the Audio/Video (A/V) receiver to a different Surround Sound mode. IMPORTANT: Verify that the source you are playing is encoded with Surround Sound audio. If not, the audio will be very difficult to hear using a Surround Sound setting. Set Surround Sound to OFF when playing a source that is not encoded with a Surround Sound signal.
  5. Check each speaker to make sure they are properly connected to the A/V receiver.
  6. Perform a Test Tone function to verify if the speakers are working correctly.
  7. Verify all external audio sources are securely connected to the appropriate inputs on the A/V receiver. NOTE: If the audio is being sent from a television to the A/V receiver, then it may be necessary to disable the internal speakers of the TV or set the audio output of the TV to FIXED or VARIABLE. If the audio output of the TV is set to VARIABLE, then you will need to increase the volume level of the TV.
  8. Make sure the correct audio input is selected on the A/V receiver.
  9. Confirm what type of HDMI devices are connected to the A/V receiver and then check the following:

    1. Test each one of the HDMI inputs on the A/V receiver to confirm that all of the inputs for the A/V receiver are working.
    2. Try a couple of different HDMI cables to verify there is not a bad set of cables.
    3. Unplug the video source from the A/V receiver and connect the source directly to the television. If there is still a problem with the audio, continue to the next step. If connecting the source to the TV corrects the sound issue, service will be needed on the A/V receiver.
  10. Verify the DEMO (demonstration) mode is not active.
  11. Change the ATT (attenuate) setting. NOTE: The procedure to change the ATT feature varies by model.
  12. Reset the A/V receiver back to factory specifications.

How to set up to my tv


Ok...sorry it took me so long to get back to you...Check the back of you tv and look for RCA jacks for audio and video out...There should be a yellow one for video..a white one for audio left(L) and a red one for audio righ(R)...you may not need the yellow one...now look for any inputs on the rear panel of the surround sound system...They can be marked (AUX)...they will work..once all of these are located...you will need an RCA patch cable long enough to reach from the tv to the surround sound receiver...once done...turn on the tv and the surround sound.With the remote from the surround sound remote...switch between the input sources..maybe (AUX) until you hear your tv sound come through...then you adjust the sound as needed...Assuming the DVD is built in to the surround sound system...your DVD sound will come back when you play DVD's...All connections and cables are color coded so you should have no problem connecting everything....Good luck....let me know how it goes,,,,I hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

Everytime I try to change the volume on my samsung it says "not available" in the middle of my screen. How should I fix this? Also I just had white spots on my tv and the technician came and...


Hello... Your TV speakers are turned off. If you don't have a sound bar or a surround sound system, go into the TV menu, audio, speaker settings and turn them on. If you have a sound bar or surround sound system, use the remote for that system to adjust the volume. I hope this helps!

My sound went out on my TV, so I set up our surround sound. I turned off the TV speakers via the menu. I am trying to set up a Wii but I can't get Vid1 Vid2 or the component ports to work. I get sound...


I would check that both your tv and the wii are set to thew same video resolution. Usually around 480i, depending on what type of cable you are using. If you are using component cables. make sure the green and the blue are not in the wrong ports. very common mistake as the look the same color.
good luck

Surround sound


Hi

Your receiver is capable of video conversion, so there should be no problem using your component cable.

Does your TV accept component, or only S-Video? If you can run component to your TV, the best quality signal path would be using a component cable from your Verizon box to your receiver, and component from your receiver to your TV.

Make sure you have set up the video input correctly, so that it is set to accept the incoming signal on the correct sockets.

Setting up receive set top box and tv for surround sound


Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.

*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
