I have an hd set top box from my cable company, but am not

i have an hd set top box from my cable company, but am not getting hd video. I get video with component cables, but am trying to use HDMI cables to get HD video. My problem is that my Hitachi 42HDX62 doesn't show HDMI inputs in its menu. I can't figure out why just plugging HDMI cable between STB and TV isn't recognizing itJA: Can you guesstimate how old your Hitachi is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: model is hitachi 42HDX62 its pretty old...HDMI was brand new at the time i didn't have an HD STB back then, so i just used component video cables insteadJA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?Customer: but now that I have HD output, i'd like to get HD video displayedJA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?Customer: i have many input choices on the TV's inputs...so yes its working. Just don't have one for HDMI i have input 1,3,5, cable, cable (STB), DVD, etcJA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?Customer: yes. this tv is capable of 1080i video at best. I went into my cable provider's menu and made sure it is outputting 1080i. But it still looks like its showing 480i or 480p-grade video

My Panasonic TV (Model TH-42PX600U) does not respond to volume

My Panasonic TV (Model TH-42PX600U) does not respond to volume adjustment or other commands (such as TV/Video) either at the TV itself or using a remote. The remote turns the TV on and off and changes channels. The power button on the TV turns on and off - although the red Power Indicator light is always on. Other buttonson the TV - Menu, TV/Video, Vol, CH on the TV are not responsive).

I have a 2007 Hitachi plasma TV that I recently purchased from

I have a 2007 Hitachi plasma TV that I recently purchased from a friend. It was working well with a card inserted in back of TV. She removed the card to take back to her provider. We have a cable box hooked up to the TV. We can power the TV on and off. It seems like the screen is frozen. It will not respond to any buttons except on and offon TV and remote. We have unplugged for 5 mins and reset button on TV without any response. What else can we do?
