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.

TC-P42ST30 power light blinks twice,replaced power supply board,no change.What to replace next?


Are you SURE you get 2 blinks? I show NO 2 blink code in the 011 model Pana plasma sets. Anyway...if you replaced the PS board and still get a code, unload the VS supply from the SC board and re-check--see if the VS supply comes up--even for a couple of seconds...about 205 volts or so. If it does--re-connect and see if it then does not come up. If not--then the SC board is likely bad (THE most common failure on ANY plasma set is the Scan board ).

Whats the value of a mitsubishi 48 inch tv, model is ws-48511?


this is mostly in the eye of the one who thinks they need one!

12 months of age 60% its purchase price if it is in good working condition
24 months 50%
36 months 25-30%
48 months 10-15%

Beyond that it will be heritage listed and bring twice the price of its original outlay and be sought after by Mitsubishi who will be amazed that they actually made a TV that lasted that long. The average life of amy Mitsubishi and quite a few other modern Tv's is about 3 years before they require huge repair expenditure.
Often better to update wvery 12 months if you can afford it as they are not built to last like the old CRT's that will still deliver on a set top box long after plasmas and rear projections have been retired.

please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Dtv ready?


Going to the following link will help you to find out if your television is DTV ready or not:

http://www.dtvtransition.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=94

Using their online tool, select the Brand (Akai) and the Model from the list. If you cannot find your model in the list (which I was not able to for your television), they are saying that you most likely do not have a digital tuner.

All is not lost, however. As stated on the aforementioned site, you can consider one of the following options:

  • Purchase a digital-to-analog converter box that plugs into an existing television. The boxes, which are expected to cost between $40 - 70 will be available for purchase in 2008. Beginning in February 2008, U.S. households can request up to two coupons valued at $40 each. Each coupon can go toward the purchase of a single set-top converter box that will allow you to continue watching FREE "over-the-air" television on an analog set.
  • Subscribe to a cable, satellite or telecommunications service provider if all desired local broadcast stations are carried by that service.
  • Purchase a new television set with a built in digital tuner.

    Listed on the page is further information that may help you to determine the status of your TV:

  • Consult your owner's manual. If that's not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer's website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. You are trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled "digital input" or "ATSC" (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is developing the DTV format).
  • If you bought your TV set before 1998, it probably doesn't have a digital tuner at all. Almost every TV set made before 1998 was a traditional "analog" set that can't display digital TV signals without either a special converter or a cable TV connection. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it's possible there's a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren't great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.
  • If you've purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores have featured digital tuners that will let you receive the new digital over-the-air broadcasts starting in February 2009. But be wary: It's not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as "HD-ready" or "HDTV monitor" sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You'll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection.

    I get a red/blue/green static at the top of my plasma tv.. when the picture goes to a dark color its usually speckles red.. then when its a light color it doesnt really show.. wats the problem?


    In some cases it is just a matter of making voltage adjustments on a plasma set to get rid of the spots you are seeing. I would look for a reputable technician in your area to see if this is the case. Good luck...

    Pioneer pdp-6010 plasma popped loudly screen went blank flashing red light in lower left corner. will not come back on after unplugging/replugging just a flashing red light. brand new unit


    Blew a transformer in the set. REATURN IT IF YOU CAN. Return it for the same tv. Pioneer makes the best plasmas in the world. This still cant contribute for the product of mass production. Defects will always arise in the best mass produced items in the world. If you cant return it then use the store warranty you will hope you purchased if you were a foold and didnt purchase it well then try to **** with the manuf. warranty. But by all means if you can return this tv to the store and only accept a new in the box model. Keep this in mind it does not hurt the stores budgets to return and exchange for the same item. The defective item goes for repair and gets to be resold again. So all stores will honor this with no trouble providing. #1 You are within the return policy. and most importantly #2 you dont buy from circuit city. If you did be wary of your warranty becuase the company just filed for Bankruptcy and they may not be in the position to honor that warranty soon. So if you guys have purchased something from circuit city that that has a warratny and you are within 30 days RETURN it and buy the same thing form the competior that you can forsee being in business for the next 3 years. All major competitors will price match so you wont have to spend a dollar more in most cirmcustances

    G,day ,I,ve purchased a PS50C91HD plasma TV,and I live at Killarney Vale NSW, my question is,do I need a Ditgital Set Top Box, for a good picture or the best image the TV can produce.


    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.
