Hitachi 42PD9700 Problems


Standard Member
Hi hoping someone can help with my problems, i Have a 4 year old Hitachi 42PD9700 Plasma TV.

1. I have recently got a sky hd box and my picture seems to be very poor when on non hd channels (Focused item is good but background is very fuzzy). I have been told about possible software upgrades. Are there any for this tv?

2. I have also started using the hdmi ports for the first time (4 years after getting TV) with the sky hd box but I have to "wiggle" the cable to get it to work. If it is not in the correct position i get a blue screen or no signal received message. Is this a known problem? I have tried both ports and same problem, I have also had sky engineer out and points to tv fault!

3. My sound has also started to stutter intermittently, I now have to watch through surround system. Again, is this a known fault and if so where can I buy spare parts or get repaired?
