Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have a Pioneer Plasma with a separate media receiver. I just changed cable companies. In setting up with their "box", my receiver when trying to turn on just flashes red/green. Can't get it to work. The tv shows a picture (3/4 screen) and somewhat is somewhat "stretched", but NO VOLUME! Can anyone help? The new cable company says there is nothing they can do. They think my tv is incompatible with their "box"

My HD cable box, Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HD recently had an automatic upgrade. I followed instructions and selected 1080p resolution. I now have a "not supported mode" message on the screen and can't seem to get it back to normal. I'm guessing that the TV is 1080i and this is why it doesn't work. Can I reset the TV to its original setting? The cable company says the cable box is working fine.

I plugged this TV into a new cable box (digital signal, not HD), and the picture now does not fill the screen. Previously, I had another TV (different brand, same tyoe and age) plugged into the same cable box, and never had a problem. Is there a way a) to adjust the picture to fill the screen without using the zoom feature, or b) if not, is there a way to make the zoom feature permanent so I don't have to activate it every time I turn on the TV?

I get a weak or no signal message on my new Samsung plasma. I'm using coaxial to my cable box. The cable works fine because I can see the vcr when it plays. I have it set to cable on the right channel for my area (4).

Your cable box and TV are set to different resolutions. Check the setup on both and make sure everything is the same (ie 720p to 720p or 1080p to 1080p) Make sure your cable box can give you 1080p (Nice set, BTW!!). HDMI is supposed to automatically ... LG 42LD520 42 in. HD-Ready LCD TV

The TV works however I cannot get the set to read the channels. I have cable but no cable box. Have tried to program it for over 3 hours. I've tried it using ch.3 and ch.4. through the remote.

I have a HP 4260N Plasma TV. About 4-5 years old. A week ago the remote would not turn the TV on, and there was no volume. I contacted my cable company and thinking it might be a remote problem they had me reset the TV and the Cable Box. So now, the remote and TV are working correctly from an on/off perspective, but the picture is horrible. Very faint, no color or limited color, and a bit fuzzy. Is this the dreaded bad YSUS Board problem??

My tv is an Emerson 20" HDTV. Last week the closed caption just popped on and we can't get it off. My cable company, Comcast, said my box is not equiped to support closed caption so it is the tv. Emerson said that if the closed caption is set to "off" (which it is) then it is not the tv, but the cable provider. Do you know how to remove the cc? It is so annoying. Thanks.


I think Comcast doesn't know much about their equipment; their box has no influence on CC since it is embedded in the program material and is passed through their receiver to your set. \012There are two possibilities; the remote is no longer sending ... Emerson CR202EM9 TV
