I was given a sampo PME-42S6 the other day. It works well when I attach it to my laptop via the DVI cable, but when I try hooking it up to my cable box, it has blue and green lines up and down the picture, and the picture itself is almost devoid of color. This is the case whether I hook it up to the coax, composite, s-video or component jacks...

If you have a Blu-Ray player you should be connecting it via HDMI, which is the only way to receive a full HDMI picture on your television. But you may connect it via the component inputs if you do not have an HDMI cord. The component cable consists of five color coded cords of (1) red and (1) white cable for the audio, and (1) blue, (1) green, and (1) red cable for the picture. Connect the Blu-Ray using this cable and you will be fine.
well there is a small box that attaches to the upper kinda right side of the back of the tv that actually plugs into the tv.. its a connection box, 2 screws will take it out.. towards the bottom of the back you have pc monitor d-sub plugs dvi and the like. but the ones you are probably looking for are up higher about half the hieght of the tv, and on the right side if you are looking at the screen. i will try to dig up a picture and post a link
I have the exact same problem and sent an e-mail to Sampo in Taiwan today (March 3rd) with a technical explanation and description of the problem you have reported. I included information on the status of the LEDs inside the unit. My suspision is that the power distribution board has developed a fault. I am going to try to find out if a schematic is available to repair the board or if a new board can be purchased. I will provide an update when I have one.
