Have Panasonic The;37pw5 plasma tv . How do I get broadcast tv?


You will need some sort of digital (ATSC) to analog (NTSC) OTA signal converter (set-top box) with an antenna. The Panasonic TH-37PW5 only has NTSC (in the US) or PAL (UK) tuners. There may be a few low power NTSC stations still broadcasting in the U.S. However, you need to be close to their transmitter to receive the signal. You can use one of the original converter that were available with the government coupon. There are some newer models available. Look at your choices carefully. You will need a converter with RF, composite video or component video output. Any model with only HDMI out will require an additional converter connected between the set-top box and the TV.

The specifications for the TH-37PW5 are available on page 38 of the manual. This is available from Panasonic here: ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/television/om/th-42pw5_en_om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How do i fix an 08 panasonic plasma tv,it will work perfect for a few hours but then goes back to green highlights,i have pics. I


It sounds like it's overheating. If you can put a small electric fan behind it and see if that fixes the problem.
My plasma has a regular box fan behind it to cool it off.

I am trying to set my toshiba ct-90159 to connect to a converter box, however, I need to change to channel 60 and i can't figure out how to do that. I have a dish satellite with 2 cable hookups and my tv...


You should be able to just connect the satellite box A/V output to the A/V inputs on the tv without the converter box. Most converter boxs are set up for the tv to be on channel 3/4. Just input the number 3/4 or whatever into the remote of the tv and press enter.

New 42inch plasma turned off while watching, can't turn on


Panasonic requires an authorization number first from them. Our parts suppliers require that before we can even order the part. I recommend calling a svc co. to have it looked at, preferably an authorized panasonic service center, it will be much faster.

Hi all i have a samsung 42inch plasma and i have sound , no pic ?


Your info doesn't indicate if you have a good onscreen display or not. If you do the problem is highly likely to be on the IO board on the rear patch panel of the tv. Replace this board and it should take care of the problem.

If you don't have a good on screen display the two common problems are either on the power supply module or the digital control module. Samsung is known to have problems on both these modules and an electronics technician should be able to remove these modules to inspect for cracked solder joints, or out of tolerance electrolytic filters.

If these conditions do not exist on either board then the power supply board should be replaced first before replacing the digital control board. Search for a vendor that will offer you a full refund will a small restocking fee if the board does not take care of the problem.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

Why are you running hdmi to converter box? Run HDMI cable directly from dvd to new Panasonic plasma. The less things in between, the better the picture.
