Looks like there is a loose connection somewhere, or one of the capacitors is ready to go bust. I recommend calling a qualified local repair man to get this checked, as there are a number of tests that will have to be done physically to resolve the issue. Unfortunately, I cannot provide any more suggestions or fixes unless I manually have a look.

Turn set on picture is dark.. if I leave the TV on.. in several hours it's viewable.


I have seen several Samsung's including 3 that were only a few months old at the time where it was the lamp---one was so dim it was very hard to even see the picture or that the screen was lit.

Two suggestions here: One of course would be to buy and gamble and replace the lamp.

What I found in two of the three cases was when I removed the lamp the glass pillar inside it was "bent" at a angle from heat or a natural defect--in both those cases a new lamp cured this dim picture issue.

Set will monitor the lamp and if too dim may shut set off or even blink for a prolonged period of time.

If the lamp is over 2 years or age (average life) or was replaced with a non-Samsung lamp you are going to have to take the gamble to try another one.

Inspect the lamp---that pillar supports the filament and if bent the lamp is suspect at best.

Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:
  1. Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors.
  2. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
    Press the CH button to display a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal.
    For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV, switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away.
    If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and .
    If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Open OSD to adjust the picture:
    Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. 
    If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV. If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,

I cannot briing in a picture. Upper left corner of picture says it is on channel 4...upper right corner "no programs availab le"How do I program TV to bring in a picture.; I am on Insight Cable.


Typically the cable box is the source of your channel programming. If you're getting the "no programs available" you need to find if that notice is from your TV or your cable box. Check the connections from your cable source to the cable box and from the cable box to your TV.
Make sure that your TV is set on the proper source selection. Most Projection TV's have several (ant, cable A, B, DVD etc) check your on-screen menu for which one and make sure the cable is connected to the proper input ports on the back of your TV.
If you disconnect the cable between the tv and cable box and still get the "no programs "...then it's your TV.. but if you lose that warning, then it's coming from the cable box... If after checking your connections, disconnect the power to your cable box and let it sit for 5 minutes and then reinsert the power to the box and see if you get a reset with signal...... If nothing after all this, contact your cable provider to check their signal to your house and also the cable box.... Hope you have quick success on this!

Cable Tv Interference


Sounds like the cable signal getting to that TV is just not strong enough.  This could be due to the number of connection and splitters leading to it.  Set it up with a coaxial cable that connects as close to the incoming cable as possible and not split it along the way.

TV turns on but with no picture or sound


This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

57HX81 Toshiba. picture gets squiggly on dvd input


Perhaps 2 things. Does TV get a picture without DVD connected? If so I would bet you have a faulty connection in your signal board where the in jacks are at the back of the TV . Check to make sure cable from DVD are not bad, I have used cables before and got a false positive. Try turning and spinning the jacks once you have a picture.Make sure your signal board is firmly pressed into its slot on the signal board chassis. Thats it for now. Good luck.

maybe your ac cable has a lost contact thats why when you wiggle it it will turn on. just replace your power cable first before you are going to troubleshoot the other problem.
