Panasonic plasma will not display signal

I have a panasonic TH-42PD25 and it will not display the signal from my PS2. i have tried switching from component to composite with no success. it will display the component signal from cable box and DVD but not the composite signal from the VCR. this is were it gets even stranger. if i activate PIP on the tv it will diplay, all be it with weird interference lines throughout. i have tried the PS2 on other TV's throughout the house and it works flawlessly on those. Thank you in advance, J. Steele

Ous worked a little odd like that also. Even the part about the pip. Try to hook the ps2 through the cable box which then connects to the tv. This worked for our dvd and wii. Hope it works.

I need a Panasonic TV TH-42PD25 base stand! I've searched ebay, no luck. This might sound dumb, but can I use base stands from any of the other Panasonic 42" models?


You maybe lucky, but make sure the mounting holes on the stand matches your TV.
Alternately you can use a wall mounting and these have mounting holes that suit most TVs.

TH-50PX77U inputs


Many times a computer's post screens will not show up a TV set, and once the computer itself has loaded the drivers and settings, the set may need to be shut off and turned back on for the HDNI or PC signal to be detected.

It is also possible the settings you selected for display properties cannot be displayed on the TV.

As far as the component video signal, are the connections correct? Sometimes people mistake the composite red, white and yellow for the composite system that divides the red, blue and green video signals.

While also possible, but rare- there may be poorly soldered connections on the "A&D" board (logic board) .

How i do tv chanel tunig


Hello Ansarielectr, The Panasonic TH-42PWD7 is a professional grade progressive wide screen plasma display. It's not your normal HDTV. You probably already know this. This display requires a component /composite video terminal Board that mounts to slots 1 & 2, or slots 2 & 3. The item number for this component is TY-42TM6Y and can be purchased through the Panasonic support website here for about $270. Once you have this component, you can connect the TH-42PWD7 to a digital HDTV cable box to receive signals. Just make sure you're on the right input signal. Hope this helps.

I am using a Panasonic TH-50PD12U plasma display as tv monitor. Basic digital cable hooked up through vcr and s-video cable to display. The picture is not clear. Hooked up the computer and the words are...


What connectors do you have at each end, ie output and input?
Is it S-Video at each end or are you converting, as I suspect, composite video out, yellow RCA plug, to S-Video in on monitor?
Converting composite to S-Video via a passive cable doesn't yield good results, as its simply feeding the composite to the two S-Video signal-components, Chroma and Luminance.
As the video output of a VCR has limited bandwidth, the signal out will never be perfectly clear, but if you can get hold of an active 'powered' booster / sharpener / crispener unit, it will help to clean up and amplify the signal, so improving clarity.
Another point:
A lot of generic Composite<>S-Video cables simply bridge or short out the C 'chroma' & Y 'luminance' pins.
A hack to improve the timing signals is to solder a 470pF ceramic capacitor across C and Y as shown in schematic.
This circuit show S-video input, but may work as out.

Panasonic th-42pd25 pops on and. Will go to black


What do they mean , anyone can post, do they mean the part?

What is this part?

It sounds like Panasonic have admited it's a problem and they should fix it.
Is it under warranty or just out?
If it is just out, you should still be able to make a claim.

I hope I have helped you.

You need to have your television tuner tested for faulty components. Your problem is caused by the components in you tuner overheating and losing functionality. The tuner need to be thoroughly test and repaired. You can reach Panasonic customer support at this telephone number. 1-888-843-9788.

Game console and plasma displays


You did not list which console you have and what type of cables it has.

Looks like your plasma has:
1 component
1 composite
1 VGA
1 S-Video

If this is an xbox360 or PS3 then you will want to use the component connection, but this one is already used by the cable tuner. Don't worry there is a solution. The xbox360 and ps3 output a higher resolution that your plasma can handle, so use the component with those systems.

If it is an older console, predating the xbox360, then use the composite or S-video connections.

Since you are short on video inputs, you might need a video switch. A switch with both component and S-video connections for future add-ons.

You can find them all over the web, or your local video store like walmart and best buy. Here is a switch i found on ebay that should work:

here is the ebay search i used:

Make sure you buy extra cables, most of these boxes do not come with cables, so buy what you need.

I prefer video switches that don't require a power outlet, but it's your choice. Some of the powered switches, have remotes for the lazy people, but I don't need anymore remotes on my table, keep that in mind.
