2 problems- 1-gasket is hanging loose on top of protection screen. 2- TV goes blank and I lose the picture and sound only on some channels at 9:00pm every night
I don't know how to get the protective screen off so I can re-affix the gasket. Also,I don't know if it's cable or the TV that's causing the screen to go blank (no picture, no sound) for about 1 minute every night at 9:00pm. It only happens on certain channels (maybe 6 channels) and only if I happen to be watching those channels at 9:00pm. If I'm on any channels other than these, it doesn't happen.

Unscrew the screws along the sides and top at back. gently lower screen forward and look inside--you should see the gasket--reattach it or remove it...I just removed it after staring at it for a year or more

I would check your connections first. If I tune my 2006 Sony TV to static there is no audio also. I would go through and check all the connections. If you are connected via HDMI cable you can try replacing that cable with a new one. If still no luck you can always return the cable. Hope this helps!
I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B
RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling,
and solves several HD picture issues, including HDCP (High Def Copy Protection) through HDMI issue. Component cabling should eliminate this problem.
This is caused by the screen sliding during shipping and should be addressed as soon as possible. Get a helper to pick up the other side of the set with you. Place a towel on the table it is on turn the TV upside down and gently bump the top side of the TV on the table until it settles. I know this method sounds a little weird, but it will save you the cost of replacing a screen down the road. What is happening is that the molded plastic supports are pinching into the mylar data or power cables affixed to your screen, and they will eventually stretch and separate.
Symptom: TV shuts off unless all the input (phono and HDMI) cables are disconnected. The symptom may be intermittent. Cause: There is an abnormal AC voltage entering the TV from one of the input cables or AC outlet. Remedy: Follow the Testing procedure to determine if there is a problem external to the product.
Concept Constant symptom If the TV no longer shuts off when all input cables are disconnected, then one of the input cables is introducing abnormal voltages into the TV. Panasonic Plasma TV sets have 3 wire AC plugs. As a result, abnormal voltages introduced into this TV will cause the TV to shut off for protection. Intermittent symptom If the abnormal input voltage is borderline (marginal), the TV shut off symptom may be intermittent. However the cause may still be detectable with a voltmeter. Protection Proof: Release the protect mode - the TV has to be unplugged to reset this protection circuit.
Threats from the HDMI input: Excessive voltage from an HDMI cable connected product will activate the Plasma TV’s protection circuitry. Placing an isolating / buffering connector (sometimes called a voltage conditioner) between the TV and the HDMI input cable often solves the problem. Testing - Unplug all the HDMI inputs from the TV. Turn on the TV. Plug in the HDMI inputs one at a time. The cable that causes the TV to enter the protection state is connected to the product that has the excessive voltage (and signal). Avoid connecting this product until an isolating connector is found.
Your recorder doesn´t have a digital tuner, let alone an HD one. You can record digital programs via your TV tuner if it gives a signal out. Connect your TV to AV1 or AV2 on your recorder and program the recorder to record from the one you chose. You must program the TV separately (I don´t know if this is possible on your TV) or leave it on and on the channel you want to record.
It sounds like the TV is responding to copy-protection on the DVD. Do you have the player connected through the TV's antenna input on channel 3 or 4 (RF connection) or through AV inputs on the set? You're probably using AV as most of the newer combo players don't offer RF output. Depending on the way the TV is made, this can often cause the set to display the brightness changes you describe. (The copy protection was designed to make the copy play back that way so it would be unwatchable. Sometimes the TV would be affected the same way on normal playback. It's why companies started selling "image stabilizers" to put between the player and the TV -- or another recorder -- to remove the copy protection. These devices may still be available. I have one but bought it at least 15 years ago.)
