Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Hi-rn Thank you for being here- We were watching our Sharp Flat Screened TV, beautiful nice picture. We noticed when we hooked the cable up for Direct TV in our new home, the input connection point was bent and slightly loose. We attached the cable and everything seemed fine. Tried to move it back to the wall and the picture became distored w/ snow and it's saying 'analog' on the screen. Is there another way to connect it to the cable other than that particular connection point until we ca



Answers :

With Direct TV, you should use the video input (composite video- yellow/picture, red/right stereo, white/left stereo)
OR
component video- (green/video, blue/video,red/video white/left channel stereo, red/right channel stereo)

the antenna connector should never be used anymore unless connecting an outdoor antenna or VCR.

if one of your input connectors is damaged, it is not likely that is will be repaired without replacing the entire circuit board (expensive!!!).
just use a different "input"- there are usually at least 3 on most TV's

In the process of my move, lost my Niko power cord to my OTP-2011-R flat screen. When the cable man tried to hook up my cable connection he used a universal power cord. Although we were able to get sound, there was absolutely no picture. The day before my move, the TV was working perfectly. Is the problem in the universal cord connection or in the TV? Niko seems to be out of business as all of the phone numbers for that company have been disconnected. Is there someplace I can buy a power

I connected the cable box to my LG tv with new HDMI cables and the picture is noticeable smaller than the size of the screen. Before, I had the cable from the wall connected directly to the tv and the picture displayed over the entire screen. What is causing this?


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

My Panasonic TC-P42X1 television was just connected (after a lengthy move) to cable and the picture has a slightly wavy pink/purple line(s) that moves from bottom to top of the screen (barely visible most of the time, however) and a slight buzzing sound. I did not have this problem at my previous house and the cable company claims it has nothing to do with their connection (I have a different television in another room with no problems). I am looking for ideas as to what may be causing this prob


Hi,\015\012\015\012To confirm where the fault came from, use the tv in video mode (DVD player). If the symptoms didn't appear in video mode, this is only indicates that the problem is not in the tv but in the reception of the cable signal. Let ... Panasonic TC-P42X1 41.6 in. Plasma HDTV

If the cable does not fit and you are not getting sound when plugged in. It is most likely the cable. Check the pins to see if they are in-tact and are not bent or worn. If you have a spare, try that. If you can plug the cable into another tv and ... LG Flat Panel Televisions

I have a Hitachi 42PD7200 plasma tv. The hdmi port works with the new xbox 360, satellite tv and until recently my Samsung bluray player. When the bluray is connected (via a 4 port HDMI switcher of directly to the TV) it shows the bluray starting up with the Samsung logo and then gives the message invalid frequency. At this point the picture and normally sound are lost. I have connected the bluray to another TV using HDMI, the same cables and it works fine. Has anyone come across this problem

I purchased this Apex Digital LCD flat screen 1080p television in November of 2009. Not long after I purchased the TV, the HDMI1 connection seemed to go bad ("unsupported mode"), and after troubleshooting; I gave up and simply moved the connector to HDMI2 - where although losing 1080p on most of the channels (the rest were available in 720); I could at least watch the TV - albeit with a reduced picture resolution on about 90% of the channels. Then in late 2010; the HDMI2 port seemed to go bad

SanyOur house was struck by lightening and now I can only get sound from my TV when connected by the coaxial cable or the RCA (red/white/yellow) cables. If I connect the TV using the componant (red/blue/green) jacks then I get full sound and picture so I know the TV picture does work. Trouble is I do not have an extra cable box or VCR to connect the TV by componant cable.

Hey guys i got the NEC PlasmaSync 50MP2 as a hand me down and hung it on my wall but cant seem to connect my dvd player to it ive tried multiple ways but still no picture. is there a way to change the channel?


You most likely need to change which input the TV is displaying. There should be a source or input button (on the TV and/or remote) which you should be able to use to do this. Just go through the options while the DVDlayer is on. ... NEC PlasmaSync 50MP2 50 in. Television
