Hi lpgrabbits

You have purchased a TV that has an inbuilt digital tuner, so no worries, you get the best performance(and the extra channels) without a set top box. Just have to be sure that you have loaded up the digital channels to your preset list. Any dramas, I can help you out.

CANNOT GET DIGITAL TUNING - IT SEEMED I HAD IT AND NOW THE PICTURE ON THE SCREEN HAS GONE SMALLER AND NO OPTION FOR RESET IN THE TV SET UP BUTTON AND ONLY CAN GET BBC 1 AND 2? ANY HELP WOULD BE...


Hello katiebould,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

I woul recommend that you try a Set-Top Box. It appears that you were actually on the last leg of Analog TV and need to use a converter to pass the digital TV into Analog for your TV set.
You can try and find them at your local Best Buy/WalMart or check with you local TV Shop.

Here is a link to one that can be purchased online.

PN63C7000 plasma turns on but shows no image.


HERE'S THE ANSWER TO YOUR PROBLEM:

There could be a problem with your aerial or set box if there is something wrong with your TV picture or sound. Don't forget that there may be work going on at your local transmitter, or some kind of local interference.

Here's what you've got to do: Check with the local neighbours or another TV connected to a different aerial in case you are not the only person's aerial affected.. If only your TV is affected, the problem is likely to be in your TV, set-top box or aerial. If other TVs are affected, it's more likely to be caused by work at your local transmitter, or possibly the weather.

Your problem is solved. Thanks.

I purchased a Grundig GUD1500XI2 Digital Freeview Box for my old small TV. Unfortunately it insists on filling the TV screen on 4.3 ratio by cutting off the sides of the picture. If 16.9 is selected it...


Please remember all modern Digital Set Top boxes are designed with HD LCD/Plasma TV's in mind. Their default aspect ratio is 16 : 9. The reverse was possible- LCD/Plasma allow you to change their viewing aspect ratio from 16 : 9 to 4:3 ( some models also allow 14:9 ).
You will have to return the box if it makes it intolerable for you to watch geometric distortions !!

I purchased yesterday a 42"


I came across this very same problem a year or so ago regarding a Plasma TV and connection via scart. It turned out to be a problem with the scart lead. Replacing the lead with an all pins connected type fixed the problem. It was caused by the TV not being given the +ve voltage on pin8 and the TV thought it was not a proper signal and shut down.
Hope that helps.

Sony Viao HDMI to Panasonic Plasma TV HDMI Input handshake


Try all of your HDMI inputs, one may be rated at the correct voltage to be able to display the video. The offical part that Panasonic was giving for this was PDPHDMIKIT, its basically a HDMI extender that regulates the voltage. The part is still available online, try partstore.com or andrews-electronics.

HDMI Cable problem


Well, first you might want to try another hdmi connection behind your TV.If it appears to have the same message,you need to check your TV setup and be sure the HDMI video is active.
Secondly,go with the recommendation of the set top box.You will use component video cable to connect from your set top box component video output(Y PR PB) to your TV (Y PR PB) and see if that actually work.If so,just use the cable box for the time being and call your cable company for another cable box to replace this one!

Does my plasma need set top box


The changeover slated for Feb 2009 only effects those people that receive TV signals from antennas. If you currently use cable or satelite, you do not requrie a set top box. Your particular model has an HD tuner so you would be fine in both cases.

Picture takes a long time to come on


Need more info on the unit.
Model, Serial # and Version # on side of unit. It sounds like you either have powersupply problems or cold solder joints in the power supply. Resoldering board may solve your problems.
Let me know, Have a good day. Jay
