The fault is from the picture board of your TV.

Take care.

    Ok, in order to this be usefull, you must specify what board? the main board was completely replaced, the sd and su board are ok, there is not a problem on power supply as the voltage is alright on all the boards.
    so, I suspect it is missing a cable.

    Ok, first I sent to a company to repair it, they returned to me
    "unfixeable" as there was not this Board here in Brazil.

    Then, I begin to get the board that was visible burned (sc board) and installed on it and calibrated the voltage on
    potentiometer values that has writen on own plasma screen.

    The lights from both SC and SS board remains lit all the time, I can
    see the plasma backlight on (gray screen) but nothing happen on
    picture, even if I press the menu option it just "blink a smooth shadow"
    and nothing happens, it remains "gray".

    There is not visible sign of bad caps ON ALL CAPS ......

    I am in doubt if is it missing cable connectors? maybe the "stupid"
    guys that tried to repair first time, forgot to install back the cable
    that comes from "D2" to the last bord you sent me "D1".

    CONNECT TO IT ....

    A NUMBER IN IT "D24 AND D7".

My LG HD tv screen has a wide, gray band on either side of the picture

Try changing 'perspective' or screen ratio.
This may work, but could also stretch the picture too wide,
On my non-LG TV this is called 'aspect ratio' under the 'picture' menu.

How can I connect a WII console to my Champion Plasma CV 142 TV set? Can I connect it with RCA cables?

The 42CVI has both composite and component video in the standard configuration. Either of these should connect to your Wii console. You will get better results if you use component video (3 RCA plugs on each end of the wire for video (Y,Pb,Pr); use a second cable with two RCA plugs on each end for audio.) The Component video is Input-4. The component video cable is usually not provided with the game console. There are 2 composite video inputs on the TV (these use one wire with 3 RCA plugs on each end of the cable for video (yellow) and audio (red and white)).

I hope this helps.

Picture is too big for screen

You will have a button on the _original_ remote that says Format, Aspect Ratio, Zoom, Size or just AR. It will cycle through Normal, Stretch, Partial Zoom, Zoom, Gray Bar, or the like. You are not in Normal but in one of the Zooms. Stretch is used to make 4x3 movies fill a 16x9 screen, may not be desirable. Zoom is used to fill the 16x9 screen with movies that have been letter boxed. Gray Bar fills the sides of a 4x3 picture on a 16x9 set with gray to "avoid" burn in. Use normal except zoom on LB. -Ken

Gray Screen

Them main video processor driver board may have to be replaced. It is also possible that the power supply may have a fault.

The factory service tech will try the modules to test for which one has failed, and then leave in the module that fixes the fault.
