Hyundai 32" LCD displaying "invalid service "on some HD Staions

Have just purchased a Hyundai 32" LCD Model CB-L3236LCD. Locallly I have Channel Prime HD and then Prime1, Prime2 and Prime3 which may or may not have differing programs to Prime HD ( I imagine in the future they will). Problem is on Prime 1,2,3 I either get a flash of the program then it returns to a blank screen with a blue box jumping all over the screen with "Invalid Service" written inside the box. Occassionally I may get a great reception on these stations but the Invalid Service box still appears. I can have a reception on Prime 1 say ( with Invalid Box0 and a blank screen on 2 and 3 with the invalid box. Very random it appears but common thread is the "Invalid Box". I only experience this with the Prime 1,2,3 Stations.
I have a an older masthead amplifier booster system and I am about 5 kilometers line of sight from the Prime translator . I have a Panasonic 52" LCD as my main set which experiences no problems and have tried the Hyundai 32" on the aerial outlet which supplies the Panasonic in event the problem was due to a weaker signal at the Hyundai's normal location BUT I still have the Invalid Service problem with Prime 1,2,3.
I went back to the store of purchase and tried their display set ( running on 'rabbit ears' aerial and less than one kilometre from the translator and the same problem existed on that set with Prie 1,2,3 only
Anyone have any solution to this problem. Any software upgrades available for these models?
Thanks in advance for any replies

SOURCE: This TV won't support 1080!

I have this same TV, and cable from Comcast (which uses the same Motorola Box as Time Warner). Are you using component output from you CATV box, or HDMI to DVI. Your TV has two component inputs and one DVI input, but no HDMI input directly. If you use component, you must do two things. 1. The TV is auto-sensing as to the input signal, and will work with 1080i, 720p, 480p or 480i. Make sure you have a good grade component cable. 2. On your CATV box, turn the power off with the remote, then within 3 seconds press 'MENU'. This will give you a screen where you can specify the output from your CATV. I suggest 1080i, but 720p works fine, too. If you are using the DVI input, then you must be using an HDMI to DVI converter cable or adapter. To make this work -- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT -- you must set the CATV box to HDMI output, not DVI. Use the same process as described above, but make sure your HDMI/DVI cable is connected, and you have selected the DVI input on the TV. Otherwise, you won't get the proper menu on the CATV box. BTW, the prior suggestion is not the problem -- low signal from the cable company would cause the picture to pixelate, but not lose sync. However, both problems COULD be caused by a defective CATV box. If they haven't already replaced the CATV box, tell them to do so immediately or you will call DIRECTV!!

SOURCE: Truoble programing radio stations.

it sounds like the memory wire isnt connected to the correct position the memory wire on the stereo needs to go to b+ also a faulty battery can cause this even if the battery can still start the car. an auto electrician should be able to test the battery for free to eliminate that as the problem

You either have a bad LCD display OR the connection for the LCD display is loose/off. Its impossible to tell what channel you are on with a 2950 without the screen working, but when you turn the channel knob do you hear any other cb transmitting on ANY channel?? This is a tough one!! I really need some more info on the radio.

Open the case and look at the area that the display is in (front of radio). Slightly wiggle all of the little plugs in that area. If you see the LCD screen come on or flash then you know where your problem lies. If not, then you're probably looking at buying a LCD display for the radio.

Good luck.

I would like to find the correct 2 digit channel display for the Galaxy DX77 CB Radio. The display in my radio has one segment out and can be confusing as to the channel you are seeking. Does anyone know...

I don't know whether this is an LED or LCD type. Finding an exact match would be difficult except from the manufacturer.

However, do CHECK the soldering of the display and the driver chip.

The segments almost NEVER fail on the LED. Soldering and board cracks and failed driver chips are usually more likely.

On the LCD displays, often they use a rubber strip with little wires to (looks almost like ribbon cable) contact pads on the glass from pads on the circuit driver board... THESE cause a lot of problems and often require a cleaning of contacts and the ends of the wires with isoprophyl alcohol and re-aligning.

Invalid Input-turning off seeting

I have the same problem in the office, but, not at home. I believe the IR sensor is confused by office florescent lighting, which has an unperseptible 60-cycle flicker not charactoristic of home incandescent lighting. Energy saving compact florescent probably have the same effect.

I have attached a dark tube over the sensor with relative success. This cluge is an unfortunate compensation for poor engineering because of the reduced angle of reception (the remote has to be directly in front of the sensor).

Channel displaying on Samsung 32"LCD TV

Most remote controls have a "display" button. Pressing that is what gets that channel number on the screen. Try pressing it again and the display should turn off. On some brands the display may cycle through various combinations (channel number only, channell and time, etc.) before it goes away, so it may take more than one press of the button.
