Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.
- Can you please get me the model number off of your TV?
- What is being hooked to TV that gives resolution error message?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

the model code is ps42c450 plugged into tv sky hd box and dvd player

Thanks Carol for the info.
Does TV display resolution error on both (Sky box and DVD) video devices?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

dvd working fine and on hdml1/dvl on tv

Thanks Carol for the info. It seems Sky box is not sending correct resolution video signal to TV and causing the problem.
- Have you tried to unplug TV and Sky box power cords from wall socket for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in and check?
If not yet, can you try it now and reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.
Thank you.

thank you that is the first thing i would always do but had never seen a message like that before will know next time

Since TV works fine with DVD player that means TV itself is OK and problem would be coming from other video source (Sky box), glad to know that problem is resolved. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
