Question about Televison & Video
Hi, I have a Samsung HLS5065WX DLP TV with built in ATSC/NTSC digital tuner. Its worked fine picking up 10 or more HD plus regular channels daily for over a year. We have it hooked up to a outdoor HD antenna. We turned on the tv yesterday and it said "no/weak signal" on every channel. We arnt even getting regular channels in nothing. Just fuzz. We checked the antenna/cables by hooking it up to another tv and picked up channels fine. I called samsung and big surprise we are out of warrenty. They said it could possibly be the NTSC tuner. I called the repair shop and they want $275 labor plus part costs. Is there anywhere I can buy this part myself and have my husband install it? He is very good with fixing things and if we could fix it for cost that would be great. However, I cant find the part number or parts store or anyone that has even had this problem before for that matter.
Thanks for any feedback!
I have the same exact model tv...Love it...ATSC tuners is in definition an Analog tuner. As the broadcasting companies change over to Digital broadcasting before the deadline in Febuary 2009 more and more local or Non-Digital chanels are becoming obsolete. You would have to purchase a converter box for your tv if your not planning on getting cable. Another way to gois if you have an old cable line running through you house (no incomming cable) plug you tv into that jack. That also acts as a antenna. The sweet part of all this is that your tv do have a QAM tuner or Digital tuner built in just need that digital antenna to pair it up.
