Question about Samsung CXD2512 25 in. Combo

1 Answer

Loose Input Connection

The antenna/cable input connection seems to be loose, and the reception is fuzzy most of the time. Jiggling the connections sometimes helps. The connector that is attached to the TV can be twisted in a full circle in either direction, and can be moved from side to side in any direction as well. I have tried connecting both cable and intenna inputs, and the result is the same. If the problem is the connector, can it be replaced easily?

Re: Loose Input Connection

Absolutely, it's a bad coax jack. It's a very common problem. Probably a 35-90$ repair is all. The jack on the tuner just has to be replaced. Sometimes the whole tuner has to be replaced causing the price to go up a bit, but that doesn't normally happen.

Mintek DTV-260


The Mintek DTV-260 only has a NTSC (analog) tuner. You will need to connect your RCA antenna to a digital to analog converter box to watch TV over the air. Then connect the output of the converter box to your TV.

The common converter boxes are limited to SD output. You might be able to find an HD converter box online. (With the standard converter box, the available outputs are coaxial and composite video.) The DTV-260 has a composite video port; alternatively set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and use the coaxial (RF) input on the TV.

There may be a low-power station that still broadcasts in analog. However these are rare. You will need to switch from CATV to OTA (Air) to check for one of these stations. Analog Cable has different parameters than scanning for over the air signals.

I hope this helps.

I have an apex flat screen TV and I use direct TV as my cable provider. I was watching TV and walked out of the room and when I came back the TV said to run the channel auto scan in the TV menu...I did...


unplug the tv and the direct cable box reset the box by plugging both the tv and box back in. MAKE SURE the tv is set on the right input for the box first. if the tv said to do auto scan then you lost the connection from the box either by changing the input that box is connected to if by a cable its usually 3 or 4. if by hdmi or rca cables its an input channel. also make sure not cables are loose try that first before unplugging the tv let me know

We are using an antenna as an input signal instead of cable and we can't find where you adjust the input signal to antenna instead of cable to the display.


Hi,
Can you please provide further details of:
  • Cable provider
  • Make and Model of your TV you are connecting to.
  • Was the Cable connected to the antenna input, or was it connected to a decoder/set-top box.
Thanks
Isaac

I recently purchased an xbox, but because of the cable box, i dont know to to get video


Your cable box and TV should have RCA input jacks (Red, White, and Yellow) Red & White are for Audio and Yellow is for video feed...

HD Receivers & HD TV's are just slightly more upgraded with better video feed connections.
HD video can use three color coded RCA jacks for the video feed or a HDMI cable; if you can use the HDMI connection on your TV I recommend using that because it's less confusing to plugin the input cables. Try turning your TV to it's side to see what inputs you have available to connect your device to.

After you have it pugged your device into the input jacks press the "Input" key on your TV remote and power up the device.
Most TV's have more than one input, so you may have to cycle through the TV inputs by press the input key again until the video feed is displayed.
(If you don't have a "input" button on the TV or remote control you can try entering channel "00")

Cable stations 2 - 12 fussy, distorted. All higher channels perfect.


This is caused by a bad ground connection. Check all of the connectors to be sure they are not loose. Also check the cables themselves. It is possible that the ground connection inside the set is bad too. If the cables and connections appear to be OK, try moving the set to another location where the picture is good. If hte pitcture is still bad, the TV tuner may have a problem internally.
Keep us posted.

Magnavox 20MC4304 connection to receiver


your set has a coaxal DIGITAL output so you must have a coaxal digital input to your reciever and that input must be assighned in the reciever to the selected input. page 10 of your manual explains how to hook up to the tv. your receiver's manual will tell you how to assighn the coax input.

Loss of picture and sound repeatedly


You already hit the nail in the head,the problem might be the actual conector loose inside the set or the tuner has loose conections to the main board,the shell of the tuner is the ground make sure the conections are solid,if you are familiar with tv service this will help but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help,right now it should not be expensive.
