Question about Samsung TXN3245FP 32" TV

1 Answer

Samsung Flat Screen SDTV Model #TXN3245FPNXXAA

This unit has been in use, since October 2004. Up until about 10 days ago, it has been great. It has started loosing the picture & sound, on just certain channels (in a certain range). We have expanded basic Cable, without a "digital box." The range of channels effected is from 29 thru 45. It has never involved a channel lower than 29 or higher than 45. If one of these channels goes out, at least one or two more right next to it also goes out. It has been 29 through 31 (or 32), 31 through 33, 34 through 36, 37 & 38 and (just once) 38 through 45. The channels mostly effected are 30 & 31. It seems that now either of these two channels only need to be on, for 5 to 7 minutes before going out. The "snowy" pattern IS NOT like what you get, if the cable is disconnected. It actually has a "digital-type" of patterns to it. I called Tech Support, who said the parts would be covered but NOT the labor (even though they also said it most likely was the cable, as the "tuner would not just involve a small amount of stations"). They said to run a cable from the outlet in the other room (which that tv has not been effected), to check the outlet. It only took about 3 minutes for channel 30 to go out. I contend this is a TUNER problem and just can't believe that a $500 tv would go bad so soon. Does anyone have an idea or has anyone heard of a similar problem???

On what you have explain you are to check with cable provider if your tunner was the problem all the channels would be affected try plugging another tv to the same cable and see what it does if you get the same symtoms then it will be from the cable company.if not then you will have to take your tv to a repairman and have it check probably a component in the tunner circuit is bad.or you tunner will need to be replace. good luck

RCA 27' tru flat sdtv- power light comes on- no display,no sound.

How do you unlock your TV from Protective Mode? There is a certain code that you need in order to unlock the Television. The technicians are saying that it went into Protective Mode, when it umplugged all by itself. I need the code so I can watch my TV again.

Samsung TV Won't Turn Off

if this set has a power relay the contacts in the relay are welded closed; unplug set for 10 seconds and plug back in; it will probably come streight on if relay is stuck. replacing relay will fix if this is the case
