My Mom has a 42" Panasonic Plasma TV. It was moved from her

Customer Question

My Mom has a 42" Panasonic Plasma TV. It was moved from her home to a new home earlier this week. when connecting the TV via HDMI cable, the picture is a washed out purple and green. I tried each of the three HDMI inputs and all were same result.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The TV Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the TV Technician should be aware of?
Customer: The TV gets a normal picture (non-HD) when hooked up to coaxial cable. I tried unplugging the cable box from it's power source to reset. same result w/HDMI input.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the TV Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
