Question about Samsung SyncMaster 17 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Tuner problem? After a recent move, my syncmaster experienced difficulties that I think are in the tuner. I suspect that a connection inside has gotten loose but I can't figure out how to remove the back cover to inspect. I removed the 4 screws that are visible (+2 underneath) but the back cover won't budge. Any suggestions? Here's why I think it's the tuner (or tuner connection): 1) it works just fine as a PC monitor 2) As a tuner, most channels are visible but fuzzy or black/white 3) when I bypass the tuner from my cable box the picture quality is good on all channels (but here I am using the cable box as the tuner -- right?). Finally I guess it could be in the connector/adaptor that goes from coax to the jack. Any idea where to buy one of these?

Re: tuner problem?

They install plastic tabs around the cabinet to prevent tampering. You could have a bad tuner, or the input block as you mentioned. You will need to find those taps and pry off the back of the set to see if there is a small square box that takes the coax or is the connection right on the tuner? If this is the case, a tuner will most likly be available at If they do not have one, take the generic number off the side of the tuner and see if they have or can rebuild the one you have. Good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread

How do I hook up a Pioneer PDP-4300 for High Def?

That depends on what source your talking about.

Cable call you cable provider and ask them for a HDTV box

Satalite you should already have one if not ask them.

OTA =over the air you need a digital tuner with a nice antenna I suspect this has a digital tuner inside so all you need is a good antenna.

DVD= hook the DVD up with the red,green,blue cables called SCART connections..

Blueray= Will bring you high def.. with its connections.

So your question is vague and can be answered in so many ways.. Rate me please

Broken jack

Sanyo has support for their products. You will have to find out who the authorised service rep is in your area. They may have to change the tuner module if the connector is part of the tuner if there is a lot of internal damage. Some models of sets have a secondary module outside of the tuner where the connector is mounted. This would be lower in cost to service.

Unless you are experienced in TV service, I do not suggest that you try to service this yourself.

I have checked all the connections and replaced all the cables with the highest quality I could buy.  I think the problem is in the TV tuner itself.  I live in a MDU so I am stuck with a rooftop satellite/master antenna.
