Check the resolution capabilities in the manual. It sounds like you either have your DVD set to 1080P which some TV's don't do progressive scan. Set the DVD or whatever to lower resolution like 1080i or 720i. It depends how you hook it up though because if you have it connected HDMI or DVI you can usually do this but with analog you usually can't change the setting.

Hitachi rear projection hd tv. message on screen says invalid cable card installed. remove to restore video access. there is no cable card installed as we have cable service through a cable company. j


Two things to try here---first is unplug the set for a while and plug back to see if the microprocessor in the set will reboot.

Second look to see if slot for the card has anything at all in it or is dirty.

if dirty blow it clean and repeat unplug procedure Note: very few of these sets have a hard reset feature but if all else fails call Hitachi customer service with the model number---they have some very good people answering the phones and an extensive data base on sets/problems.

We have direct tv, the other day while attempting to format our mitsubishi tv from the direct tv remote something went wrong and we lost about 20 channels from our regular and direct tv. Now when we swtich...


I would start with the DirecTV unit first and set the resolution back to 480i. This can be done in the menu or with a button on the front of the receiver, all modes are shown on the front of the unit. It's not uncommon to get that message when using the DTV input on MITS tv's, it's just a formatting glitch...but a bit annoying. Your set may not decode 720p resolution so I suspect those channels that broadcast that format may be your problem.

"Invalid format" how do I change from 1080p to 1080i or 720i?


I had a second playstation hooked to another tv in my home and took a controller from the non-LG-TV-displaying ps3 and one from a working ps3 on a seperate TV. And used the working ps3 to guide me to the settings menu on the ps3 that was not displaying video. Anyways, if you cannot see the tv screen because it is set on 1080p and your LG will not display it (Only displays up to 1080i). Start The PS3 and press the D-pad buttons in this order.

Left 10+ times. (This Takes you to the far left icon in the XMB)
Right Once. (This is the settings icon)
Down 20+ times. (To reach the bottom of the settings)
Then Up 4 times (This is Display Settings)
Press "X" Once. (This enters Display Settings)
Press Up 5 times (This Makes Sure you are at the top of the sub-menu at Video Output Settings)
Press "X" Once (This Enters Video Output Settings)

Before pressing any more buttons, Know what cables you have pluged into your TV.
For HDMI Just Press "X" and it will auto adjust to for the new TV.
For Component / D-Terminal Output Press Down Once Then "X", and X Again (This changed my ps3 from the 1080p-Invalid Format back to 1080i and fixed my problem.
For Composite Video Output Press Down Twice, Then "X" and X again.

For AV MULTI / SCART Output Press Down Three Times, Then "X"and X again.

Tv screen went blank. When I unplug and plug back in I here a hissing Lg 42 flatron plus 6 years old.


do you have heater voltage because if you are hearing high voltage you may need to replace a resistor and capacitor in the 200v circuit or you could possibly have a anode not seated right arcing on somthing or a bad flyback

I need a TV screen for Samsung TV 42"


I assume you mean, "flat" just the outer screen? There are three screens there. The outer one, called the screen filter is p/n# AA67-00207A... The next is called screen tint, p/n#
AA67-00193A and the inner most screen is the fresnel screen, p/n# AA67-00193B...
Now the tough part of the question::: If anyone will have these it would be Samsung parts, http://www.samsungparts.com/search/search.asp but I don't know at what price or availability.. Just don't dock my rating for not knowing..
