20 Most Recent Samsung PS50A457 50 in. Plasma TV Questions & Answers

Make sure it is plugged into a working outlet with the correct power adapter. Also try turning it on with the buttons on the tv rather than the remote, as the batteries in the remote may have died.

hi can i just add? I have recently got this tv but for some reason when i set setting to Normal they reset to dynamic?? After about twenty mins? I keep having to change back to normal or if i set it to perfect brightness etc... it just goes back to dynamic again? i.e cell light 100% and contrast up to 100%!

Why is this??

Possibly could be the Y buffers --if the are next to each other could be a bad connection on a ribbon cable ---you need to call for service

If you talking about on one screen, you cant. BUT you can buy a TV card for your computer so that it will have a built in TV. so you can theoretically have split screen TV and computer. But what your thinking off only works on 2 or more player games consoles

Not unless you are using a regular antenna and dont have a TV with a digital tunner.

Match the PS3's output resolution to your TVs (in this case 720p).
Don't sit too close, otherwise you'll start to see individual pixels.
Make sure the HDMI cable is good quality.
As for picture settings, they will very so much according to the viewing conditions that i cannot give you settings that are gauranteed to work for you. But sharpness should always be 0 when dealing with HD content.
If you want to really get the best picture from your TV, try using a THX disc to calibrate it. Luckily these are normally included on Disney PIXAR DVDs, so go find yourself a copy of CARS or something. Follow the instructions of the THX setup, and you should have youself a sweet looking picture in no time.

Hope this Helps.

The applicable code will be found in your Newstar remote control, if it is compatible.

Use code search to find it. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.
