Question about Panasonic TH-42PWD8 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

Open Question

Hi, I have a TH-42PWD8 MONITOR that I bought from the plant i worked at in an auction. There is no remote. I had it connected to my laptop once and it worked fine. I want to connect a DVD player to it. What jacks do i need? How do I connect them? Can I get the monitor to work without the remote? And if I wanted to run the monitor as a TV, what all is involved with making this happen? I really need and would appreciate your help, since i can't return it...nor do I really want to resell it.

If you cannot find the remote control at all, you will need to reprogram the EPROM IC. This IC is inside the tv, with numbers starting or in between 24c02.... Please contact any qualified tehnican for further help. The IC i mentioned is programmed and at present it is locked through Hotel Mode. Also try to look RESET switch, to reset the whole unit. Thanks

HPC Monitor won't change input


Try a replacement remote control. A good one is a Philips Universal which can be found at Walmart or Right-aid. Around $14 bucks, and is very modern and up to date for just about all flat panel sets. (It's also a learning remote, so it will learn remotes).

How to use external monitor on a toshiba laptop with external monitor


It's probably best to buy a keyboard off auction sites or a new screen, the Function keys are not OS sensitive so a different keyboard will not work with them, they are device specific and require special drivers to operate.
Are keys broken or are they just missing? the membrane will still work to a firm press even if the key is missing.

keyboards can be found on auction sites

sorry I can't help more.

I have a panasonic plasma TH-42PWD8 bought one 2 years ago but did not use it. Now i fixed it and started watching and then after one hour suddenly i see that the screen goes blank and the LED light to...


The factory diagnostic for an 8 blink error code is: Driver SOS 3 SS-Board / SS2-Board; SS FPC Detect; SS Energy Recovery Circuit. Basically it means that the current absorbed by the X-Sus board is too high. It looks like this
http://www.discount-merchant.com/PANASONIC-TNPA3544-X-Sustain-Z-Sustain-Board-p/1042654.htm
You will need to open the tv and check the connections to this board and all the components on it. Also check the filtering capacitors from the power output line that powers this board.
If you can't find anything wrong then the entire board will have to be replaced.

Pana TH-52PWD8UK. No picture, flashing red LED on front panel


Thanks for the quick answer. I purchased the set in 2005 and it lives outside under an overhang on my patio in humid South Florida. Unfortunately, I couldnt count the red flashes before it went completely dead. Think it was 4or 5. This would correspond with a possible fuse failure on the Power supply. I bought the online service manual, I just wish I knew what to do with it!! The fuses both seem to check out ok on a continuity check. any ideas? Thanks, Charlie

Connecting asus M51V to Panasonic TH-42PX8A plasma via HDMI


Hi

Make sure your TV does indeed support the resolutions you are trying to use. Some low quality HDMI cables can also be troublesome in higher resolution so try one you are sure to work.

Regarding to the desktop only being extended when using the RGB cables, try bringing up the desktop properties window, select the TV as the primary monitor and select "Use this monitor as Primary monitor". You might have to drag the windows Taskbar over to the other monitor, just rightclick the taskbar, uncheck "Lock the Taskbar" and drag it over to the other monitor.



Hope you find this solution helpful, and please rate it if you do so..

best regards,


Karl
