I just started getting a message on my sony plasma screen - no video input - I can't see a DVD either - could this be a cable connector problem or is it a problem with the actual screen - I have bypassed the vcr & set top box - still nothing?

Unplug foxtel three video pins cable and plug yellow video cable of dvd then play it, you will get correct and clear picture in video input. You can not plug composite and component video at same time in video input of tv, that is cause of your problem. Thanks
Check all the video inputs. If non of the inputs of video work you need a new Q board, However if your screen doesn't work at all shows no signs of life and you can't access the menu then you will need a new B board.
if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..
First, is the DVD player output (Video out, audio out) connected to the TV input?
Have you used the Yellow cable from DVD video out to the TV video in? Mixing the audio and video cables will result in no signal.
Have you selected the proper input with your TV remote control. Most plasmas accept a variety of input signals; you must select the right one.
I deal with a number of these issues. Usually the connections are made improperly or the correct input source is not selected with the TV remote.
Put a DVD in the player and press play. Be sure you have made the proper connection from DVD player video/audio out into an auxiliary or video input on the TV. These could be labeled Line 1 or Line 2. With the DVD playing, run through the input options on your remote control. The button might be marked source, video or input. The screen should display your choices i.e. video 1, video 2, etc. When you see your DVD program, you've got the right combination.
Does the Sony surround upscale the signal from normal RCA to Component video? If so I have found that sometimes there can be signal sync issue. Meaning the signal that the component video convertor (inside the surround sound unit) sometimes struggles to give a clean component video signal. The TV then struggles to filter the signal correctly resulting in a jumping picture. Try plugging the DVD video only (yellow RCA lead) straight into the plasma and see what happens. You can also try playing with the signal frequency of the plasma, from 50 - 60hz. This will found in the menu of the plasma. Hope this helps. ST
Hello drifter,The design of the tv enables the auto search to detect any input signal you have selected. It could be TV (off air, video signals etc) so just switch on whatever inputs to the akai plasma befote you switch the Akai plasma on and let it do the work for you. just relax and watch the tv.
1. switch on the input eg video deck, DVD, VCD, or satellite dish.
2. switch on your AKAI PLASMA and
3. wait for the akai to search for your input signals. TRy this simple procedure and if it doesnt work just post back the message.
