Question about Panasonic TH-42PD25U/P 42 in. Plasma EDTV

2 Answers

Panasonic TH-42PD25 TV plays great until we switch to video 1 or video 2 input. When switching to video 1 or 2 input we loose about 5 inches on the right hand of screen (looks like noise on the screen if no device is active /on). If we play a dvd on either video 1 or 2 the video the noise bar becomes solid black and the game / dvd works fine just loose 5 inches of viewing from the right. Any suggestion would be grateful.

This is a known problem. Panasonic sells a jig to correct it. I had the same problem and bought the jig for $60. It plugs into a special port in the back of the tv behind a little door. You can read all about it here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthrea... if you want, contact me by replying and I can mail you the jig temporarily for $10 plus S&H. You'll save money and it worked for me, i just need it back.

How to hook up cable box, dvd player, and tv, to the home theatre system


Instructions things you'll need:
  • Composite video cable
  • TV
    • 1 Place the front left and right speakers on each side of the TV with the speaker labeled "Center" either above or below the TV screen. Set the rear speakers behind the seating area at head level and place the subwoofer on the floor a few inches away from the wall, which can absorb bass sounds if the sub is pressed against it.
    • 2 Connect the plug on the end of each speaker to the jack labeled for that speaker on the back of the Durabrand receiver. The cables are permanently attached to the speakers, so each may need to be moved closer to the receiver. For example, the left front speaker connects to the jack on the receiver labeled "LF."
    • 3 Plug the video cable from the Video OUT jack on the back of the receiver to a Video Input jack on the back of the TV.
    • 4 Plug in the Durabrand receiver and TV to the electricity and switch on both components.
    • 5 Press the "Input" button on the TV remote several times until the Durabrand signal displays on the screen.

I usually play video games on the rca 14 inch true flat tv but my remote broke that they gave me so i cant go to input to play video games. Do i need a new remote for that or can you do it a diffrent way...


Unless the set has front panel menu buttons and the on-screen menu allows you to select the source, the answer is "no, you can't switch without the remote". If the original remote is really broken, you may be able to use an RCA-brand universal replacement that has an "input" or "source" button. Unless the original is physically damaged, before you toss it check the battery contacts inside. They sometimes get loose from handling the remote a lot and don't make good connections. Also make sure the new batteries are fresh and facing the right way.

Can't play dvd player on JVC tv; I don't have a JVC remote.


I hooked up a Pioneer DVD player to my TV and when I play a DVD the volume cannot be controlled by the TV. It just plays at one level and on the louder side. When I'm watching regular TV and the DVD player is on and playing a disc I start to hear the DVD soundtrack at the same time as the whatever I'm watching on TV. I should not be able to hear anything until I switch over to Video 1. Any suggestions?

TV screen is frozen


Look for a button on the remote or front of the set that is labeled input (could be tv/video) this switches between video inputs and the tuner.

Stereo/Mono Fluctuation Screen Display Problem


I had the same problem.

All I did was unplug the standard cable wire from my tv and used RCA cables to connect my TV to my digital cable box the the Input 1 jack in the back. It also increased the video quality.

Westinghouse ltv-19w6 source won't change


Have you tried to click the source button on the tv? It is the second button from the bottom on the right hand side of the screen.

I doubt your tv/monitor is turning off, it just isn't getting any input. D-Sub is the "pc monitor part".

Try clicking that button, give it sec, the hit it again. It will go through all of it inputs. If TV is what you are trying to find, it is directly after the Video input (green letters, top right hand side of the screen.) Keep hitting the button until TV shows up.

Good Luck!

From the manual (search Google for CM27101S): Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, If you?ve connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR) using the Video/Audio input, you will want to be able to view the signal from the component. To do this, you will need to switch from the ? TV ? input to the ? Line1, Line2 ? Input, as follows: 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then ? Set-Up ? menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHVbuttons to select ? Input ?. 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change from ? TV ? to ? Line1, Line 2 ?. 4 Wait 10 seconds, or press the MENU button to return to normal TV viewing.
