Sky HD wont come on automatically on Panny plasma help plz


Well-known Member
my mate has a panny 42 inch plasma (cant remember the model number about 3 years old) and his sky hd box was faulty and has been replace all is well but when he turns on the sky hd box power the picture doesnt automatically kick in like it used to he has to use the tv/av buttom to manually get an image and vice versa when he powers the sky hd box off the freeview does not kick in it hangs with a black screen on the hdmi input av, can anyone please offer some advice, i did sort it for him a few years ago but i cannot remember how i did it..

Just to add his new sky hd box is a Samsung box which i have read there has been problems with.
