Re: Samsung 40" Full HD LCD
Resetting the TV If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:
NOTE: Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1.Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet. 2.Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...) 3.Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds. 4.Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV. 5.Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again. 6.Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices. 7.Turn on the TV.

I've had similar for a long time, now the picture only lasts a few minutes or seconds. Have to turn the TV off, wait 5 minutes, turn it back on. That's with Sky HD. Used to be the same with SCART but I don't use that any more, and I get it with the Wii on Component. However HD DVD and Blu Ray players are no problem!

Way out of warranty but really just need some repair expert to tell me what needs fixing. Taking the cover off there are very few components and look easy to replace, and seen some on ebay. A fix from Samsung would be vastly in excess of the value of the TV.
I am guessing slightly as you havn't mentioned the model, but I think you need to change the output setting on the panasonic to component before it will work, connect it up to your old set or to the new one using scart, go into the menu and select component output, the pic will probably disapeer, then connect to the new tv via the component connection and it should work
you will need the following = HDMI LEAD
Optical Audio Lead
Red and White phono Lead
Sky HD Box > connect to Tv via HDMI Lead.
Sky HD box > Connect the optical Audio, and the Phono Leads To your Surrounds sound.
The reason I am wanting you to connect the phono's as well as the optical audio out. Not all programs are transmitted with Dolby D so you will need these for normal sound to come through your surround sound.
One last thing I would like you to check is the sound settings on your Hd box.
OLD PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 4, 2, then ensure that Dolby D is displayed if not highlight and using the blue button change this to Dolby D. then arrow down to save.
NEW PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 0, Arrow along to SOUND then arrow down and change this to DOLBY D Then press the GREEN button.
Hope this Helps you out. IF so please leave a thumbs up
DID YOU TRY PLUGGING YOUR COMPONENT CABLE INTO A SCART ADAPTOR FOR YOUR TV...THIS SHOULD FIX IT FOR YOU.... I TAKE IT YOUR TV IS A 5 SERIES OR A 6 SERIES SAMSUNG.. GREAT TVS HAVE ONE MYSELF, BETTER WHEN MORE CHANNELS ARE BROADCAST ON FULL HD BUT...
Hi - I have some suggestions. The following factors effect picture quality:
1. Source (because LCD TVs have much higher picture quality than traditional CRT "Tube" TVs, the worse your source material, the worse it looks on a LCD TV).
DVD and Sky/Digital TV should look excellent on this TV when connected with a good quality Scart lead (nothing too expensive, but a Oxygen Free Copper Gold lead may help) directly into one of the TV's Scart inputs (avoid using "switching" boxes for multiple equipment).
Also, bear in mind that this is a HUGE screen (40 inches I think) and will REALLY show up bad source material.
The best advice I can give is, if you have HD-ready equipment use HDMI connections for everything (ideally with an HD-uplscaling DVD player which will "improve" the quality of standard DVDs on the TV - I recommend models by Philips) and check that you are in "Movie" or "Cinema" mode on the TV.
Make sure that all of your equipment, like your Sky digibox, is set to 16:9 mode (not 4:3) aswell to preserve the true widescreen aspect ratio.
Hope that helps!
What type of equipment are you using with the scart cable.the sony has limited video processing on the regular video imputs(composite and s-video).I have the 46 inch version,and it too looks like crap on the low end video.
