Question about Samsung SP-S4243 Television

1 Answer

Black borders On my plasma TV, I had compenent cables hooked up from my cable box to my TV. I went to buy an HDMI cable to hook up instead of the component. When I hooked up the HDMI cable, all of my regular channels have a black border on the sides now. My HD channels are full screen, but the rest are not. How do I get my regular channels back to full screen? I already tried hooking back up the component cables, but there is still the black borders on the side. Can anyone help?

Check the resolution settings on your cable box, you may have to call your cable provider to find out how to get into the settings menu, there is a stretch function in the settings that should make all the lower channels auto fit your screen, also see if there's a p=size button on your remote control, try pushing that when on the channels that have sidebars.

The yellow/red/white cables are COMPOSITE cables. COMPONENT cables are RED/BLUE/GREEN. You can buy those at any electronics store. Your best bet, though, is to stick with HDMI if you can.

Killed by lightning, have power, no picture...


The warranty does not cover lightning, check if your insurance covers it.
A lightning strike on such panel ( HDMI ) is very difficult to repair and if not impossible.The HDMI connector is hooked to the ground of the TV set so everything could be damaged.
My advice is not to repair.

IN72 Projector problem


My understanding when we purchased our IN72 2 years ago is that there wasn't any additional benefit for Cable box using HDMI since the IN72 does not transmit audio so using component cables for cable was optimized enough. We have our DVD player connected via the HDMI only. Possibly the transmission from cable box through an HDMI is not compatible audio is confusing it? hard to say. Cable HD channels look awesome thru the compenent cables, the max for IN72 is 480i anyway.

We've got 35 ft cables for all 3 hdmi, compenent, and that vcr one too and it's worked great.

Samsung HDMI issue


Have you try to replace your HDMI cable?I recommend you to pick up a good Monster HD700 HDMI cable from a local retail store like best buy or circuit city.In case it isn't the cable problem,you could return it.
However,when you are a using the HDMI cable,it is normally either have both picture and sound or nothing at all.Are you sure you didn't hook up the audio OUTPUT from your TV back to a receiver input?
Or even an optical output from the TV to the receiver?
