connecting Nintendo NES-001 to my LG plasma tv

I am trying to connect my old NES system to my LG 42PA4500 plasma tv using the audio and video cables. The tv recognizes the presence of an input but says that the format is invalid. I've tried changing various input parameters relating to resolution but cannot find a solution. Has anyone any idea of what my problem might be?

Thank you - that's the one component that was missing from the set. I ordered an rf modulator from eBay and am anxious to try that approach. I'll update my results as soon as it arrives. Still am puzzled by the "invalid format" - others have shown successful hookups to digital tvs on youtube.

As I'm not there

I can't test the composite signal on other sets. I take it you know that the component inputs are shared and may not auto switch to composite?

Sorry but I didn't find the manual for your model. Or rather too many models 42PA4500 for a few countries so I didn't. If you want me to check the manual, I'll need a link to your exact 42PA4500.

Success! The solution was inputting the video signal by way of the rf modulator. Worked like a charm. Thanks for the helpful advice.
