SOURCE: seems like a fuse blew on my sylvania 42'' plasma bought in 04?

it isnt a fuse, if your fuse was blown, it wouldnt even turn on, even for a second, it is your Y-SUS board, you can order one through there website, i think

Did you completly reset the cable box. Similar thing happened to me. When I pushed the TV remote the volume went up and down but no sound. I pulled the power from the cable box, waited 30 seconds and repowered cable box. Sound came back on.

Hope that helps.

How do I set the sleep timer? We got the tv from a friend and it had no manuel.


Programming the Sleep Timer:

  1. Press and release the TV key.
  2. Press and hold the SLEEP key for three seconds. The illuminated component name turns on.
  3. Release the SLEEP key.
  4. Using the number keys, enter the desired time in minutes (from 1-99 minutes). To set the timer to an umber under 10 minutes, first press 0 and then the desired number (e.g.,05 for five minutes). The illuminated component name blinks with each key press.
  5. Once the second number is entered,the illuminated component name turns off.
    Tip Any key press other than the number keys is ignored. If you don't enter the sleep time within 10 seconds after pressing the SLEEP key, you must start over at step 1. The illuminated component name blinks four times and then turns off, indicating your attempt to program the Sleep Timer has been unsuccessful.
  6. The Sleep Timer is now set.
  7. Leave remote aimed at the TV. Once the Sleep Timer is set, you can continue to use the remote without affecting the Sleep Timer. However, because the timing mechanism for the Sleep Timer is built into the remote itself, the remote must be in TV Mode and pointed at the TV to activate the Sleep Timer.
    Note: If the ON·OFF key is pressed, the Sleep Timer is canceled.

My 42 inch sylvania plasma tv does not have a coax connection, so how do i hook up my cable to the audio/video connection? i know there is an rf converter to transfer audio/video to coax but i really...


Since your TV only has audio and video input jacks, you can connect those to audio and video output jacks on the VCR. Now connect the coax cable to the RF/ant input on the VCR and you'll have to change channels by using the VCR channel selector.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Most likely it is in the cable box settings accessed through the cable remote, not the tv settings which are set up through the tv remote.
