My Samsung 42"DLP displays wavy lines when connected to DVD

My television's picture is beautiful when viewing television but when a DVD player is connected, there are wavy lines that go across the screen.

The DVD still plays but the picture is very wavy.

I have tried 3 different DVD players. A Sony, An Emerson and a Panasonic.

I have also tried using both the RCA video connections and the S Video ports all with the same result.

I believe it must be something with the way my tv processes signals from a DVD player. Does anyone have any ideas?

That chirp indicates a feedback on the secondary transformer in the switch mode power supply and needs to be either repaired or replaced. A good shop can have this one back up in an hour or so - assuming they have the parts on-hand... If they have to replace the SMPS you'll naturally have to wait a few days. Most shops don't have such specific parts on-hand and will have to order it.. Replaced an entire SMPS for an Akai recently with the same symptom, chirping. Turned-out to be the regulators and two MOSFET's. A MOSFET is a metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor.. In laymen's terms a switching gate. But below the two MOSFET's, when they went thermal they burned the board and several small traces which could not be bridged. The SMPS was $70.00 plus shipping, and you're probably going to be somewhere in that ballpark on this too if the whole SMPS has to be replaced. Good Luck Bill

Cable TV: Connect the LCD TV to the cable with CATV and Digital cable. Preset the cable TV channels into memory with Auto Scan function when using a cable TV system. Make sure you set the INPUT SOURCE properly (TV, VGA, S-Video, etc)

TV's do NOT accept all computer resolutions. You must keep trying the various resolutions of the computer until you find one that works.

I believe 1280x768 normally works for most TVs.

Once connected, with a Samsung TV, you need to press the SOURCE button on the TV remote control to view any external sources such as your DVD player.

The ‘NO SIGNAL’ message would indicate there is no signal, if you have not tuned your channels in, this may be the digital tuner you are viewing. Press the source button whilst a DVD is playing in the DVD and see if an image displays.
