Hey there bethymofo, the problem is with your cable box. Your TV is fine. You should contact your cable provider but most likely result is to bring in for a new replacement. Good Luck!

Are you using the cable/Sat box? That sounds like you have the problem with your Sat box or the cable box, not the TV problem. It is trying to update the firmware.
You should contact the hardware provider.

I have USB cable attached to tv and DVD player and


Connect the DVD to TV with HDMI or component video, don't use USB, USB on the TV is to insert a flashdrive/thumb drive to display a slideshow or download music.
Good Luck !

JUST BOUGHT A 42 INCH PLASMA TV ABOUT AN HOUR AGO. IT CAME ON FOR 3 MIN AND THE PICTURE WENT AWAY. STILL HAVE VOLUME PICTURE WON'T COME BACK.


HI
It might be a factory problem. Plasma screens uses tiny bulbs to display images and if one is broken its better to change it and get a new one.

In your case it still has a warranty on it and on most electronic products you get a new one or your money back if you report a fault before 14 days.

Hope it helps
cheers

No signal from computer to monitor 8/13/08!


I had the exact same problem!! Drove me crazy for days. Couldn't find any answers online, contacted Gateway tech support and they told me my warranty was expired but they'd be happy to discuss my issue for $2 per minute. Gateway can **** it!!

At first I thought the problem might be a malfunctioning NVIDIA card, a problem with my DVI cable, or the monitor itself. But, after turning off the computer, unplugging the DVI cable, replugging the DVI cable and restarting the computer, I noticed I could get the firmware flash screen to show, including the BIOS menu boot and the Gateway system reinstall screen to show. As soon as the Windows flash logo would display, however, the monitor would drop out and display the dreaded "No Signal" error.
This indicated the problem was a software one and not hardware! The cable, monitor and video card were all working fine. Then I remembered that Windows installed its automatic update a few days prior. In fact...

THE PROBLEM TURNED OUT TO BE A WINDOWS UPDATE INSTALLED A FEW DAYS PRIOR.

After succesfully booting into safe mode (F8 during the flash/bootup screens), I went to Add or Remove programs in the control panel, clicked on the "Show Updates" box on the top, and uninstalled the Windows update from a few days prior to the occurance of the error. After a reboot the problem was solved.

I hope this will help anybody else struggling with this error!

There is a service bulletin for this problem - you need to reintialize the memory settings in the service menu - I have a pdf file showing how to do this.
