If you go on the Website for either the TV Manufacturer or the Universal Remote Manufacturer, you should be able to find the codes that will "marry" your remote to your TV.

Hold down button on remote until it blinks
Type / Press Code
Hold down button on remote until it stops blinking.

The remote website or manual that came with it will have the exact procedure.

The key to the whole thing is the code (make sure you have the exact code and TV Model.

Most stores will only give you 30 days to return something. You obviosly have either a bad plasma panel or a scan board. Either way you should have a manufacturers warranty. Contact the store for that info.

Hello. The most important thing is a secure mounting so the tv doesn't fall off the wall later. Here are several videos to show you exactly how to proceed http://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+mount+flat+screen+tv+video&hl=en&sourceid=gd&rlz=1D1DLUS_enUS358US358

I have posted this solution for a few of the othe Sampo problems. This sounds similar. I had the same problem [sounds the same]. It was an assembly issue. the circuit board2_bing.gif in the middle twards the bottom was wedged in but not flat. the bend eventually caused the same type symptons. I removed the board, applied presure over a couple days, heated the board with hair dryer2_bing.gif and finally got the board to flatten somewhat. Also had to file one edge of the board to get it to set flat in its slot. Has worked since [over 3 years]. I do not recommend doing this unless you are prepared to throw it out, since this is very unorthodxed.

Dont be intimidated. it could be nothing more than a bad capacitor. these are easy to change. capacitors are the round little barrel looking things sticking out from the control boards. when they are bad they look fat and bulged. remove the board replace any bad components and reconect. I know it sounds simple but it just might do the trick.

hook up a vcr and put in a tape and make sure there is a signal on the yellow video out jack.
use that as a signal to put a video signal into the 42 inch t.v.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. A plasma TV is a very hard working device. It is working harder than any TV that has been built before, and as a result it produces a lot of heat. 75% of technical problems in plasma TV's are caused by overheating problems. You’ll need to check the power supply board first for any swollen/bulged/leaky capacitors. As power supply board is the hardest working board in a plasma TV, it develops voltage to supply all components, high current + high voltage. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when switched off. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

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
