Hi Smudger

Not sure if you still have this issue, but i have just bought this TV & also use sky (not + or HD)...

I got myself a Monster Cable Home Theatre surge protection unit from comet, basically it helps filter out all the background interference (picture & sound) & helps boost the signal sent to the TV..

I use a gold plated scart lead from the sky box to the TV & the picture is spot on.......i've not noticed any ghosting/pixeling etc & am well impressed...

The unit came with a top end HDMI cable & cost £135 (bit excessive you may think, but to buy the unit & cable seperate would cost £250!!) + the cable is a 'cable for life', so you can get a free updated cable as technology progresses :-)

My sky signal was always at half power (you can view this from the sky menu options) & now its almost full signal

Tries tv unplung,replug it back like about an hour later.For the tv to do a resetting itself back to the factory setting.Tv now 50/50 the tv might work as normal again.If the tv dosen't.Tv have a dead 1 or 2 backlight buffers boards have to be replacing.These 2 long backlight buffers boards only job are to provided a tv plasma screen panel for a backlight to see the picture.Tv now the plasma screen panel have no backlight that why ur tv have only audio sound and no picture.No experience in tv repair and never done any electronic board parts replacement before.Best just call many tv shops and explain the tv situation it in and get the best quote prices for parts and labors.Best prices parts and labors should be around $400 is fair more than that as i said shops around for more tv repair shops.

How do i turn off subtittles on my tv


Hello Beautyloxy,
On your Samsung remote there should be a button that says SUBS. This is the subtitile button if you are watching your TV through the normal aerial or digital this should sort out the problem for you.

If your TV is connected via Sky etc with your sky remote if you press the Help button this will prompt you what to do.

Hope this helps you out.

Cheers Little Dish Fitter

CAN ONLY GET THE SURROUND SOUND TO WORK WITH DVD'S NOT WITH NORMAL TV OR SKY?? WHY??


You should have a AUDIO menu in which you can simulate true surround sound. This should be in your owners manual. Your DVD is recorded in dolby surround sound that's why on your set it will be reproduced as recorded. I hope Samsung is using a ATSC tuner in that model?
