Try to swap your sky receiver connections at the back with the DVD player and see if you get the same.

Have you tried adjusting the contrast within the sky menu.
go to services and alter the settings from there, maybe change the outout from rgb to cyan/red/green.

Samsung plasma stalling


Your TV is fine, the problem is with the signal from your satellite dish.

The signal from the satellite is digital, so when your receiver can't get a clear signal from the satellite, it shows the last good picture it had until the signal comes back.

Check to see if your dish is still properly aimed, with a clear view of the sky (no trees in the way)

PIP only works off two seperate signals, eg you cannot watch 2 sky channels at a time, you can watch sky tv and then your analogue channel using PIP or freeview, you can then swap which is to be viewed as a large picture and which is to be viewed as the smaller picture or half and half.

How to get 1080 resolution from my plasmaI have the 6842 pe EDTV


DVDs are 480p
HD-DVD or Blu-Ray DVD is 720p or 1080i or 1080p

you cannot increase resolution, if you want to play a 480p/i video on a 1080p/i or 720p screen, you are merely stretching the picture.

If there is any kind of box that tells you it can convert 480i/p to 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) it is simply stretching the picture.

you can convert 1080p/i or 720p(high definition) to 480i/p as you are taking out information from the video to make it smaller.

I assume your DVD is coming up in colour when you plug it into a standard scart connector? Have you tried using a different S-Video cable because this sound symptomatic of a dodgy lead?
Check the SCART end of your lead for any bent or broken pins.

Failing that if the problem lies with the TV itself I'd really recommend having a pro look at it. Plasma's are expensive and opening it up if you don't know what you are doing is a bad idea.

When watching dvd having showing or fade background


yes it can be down to signal degradation especially via scart lead, make sure you use a decent scart if you buy an expensive one you can tell the difference. Run a cable from your sky digibox direct to your tv to see if the picture improves.
