Samsung PS42C91HX/XFA AV2 stopped working

Hi, my AV2 input on my Samsung PS42C91H stopped working. I cannot see the AV2 channel in the setup menu. Certain menu functions have also stopped. I cannot tune channels for example. When I try selecting the menu item it is skipped. Is there any way to restore the factory settings before I call out a technician?

I have found the solution at last :)
Put the TV in standby and press these buttons in order
Info, Menu, Mute and Power on.
You will then see a hidden menu, on line 12 select reset
Bingo :)

SOURCE: need help

ensure the tv is in analogue mode, not dtv and turn it off. with the remote: press info then, menu, then mute then power. these buttons need to be pressed sequentially not all at the same time and in quick succession. a menu will appear on the tv. navigate to the reset option and press the left arrow key on the remote (or press the enter/ok button) the tv will reset itself and turn off. turn the tv back on & it'll re tune all its channels. DTV should be working again.

I have connected the audio optical cable from my TV, but I couldn't get the koss system to work. Are there any other settings need to be set? Which channel should i use to get the sound AV1 or AV2?


AV1 & AV2 are the Video Inputs from your external devices such as DVD Player, Freeview etc.

I presume you have something connected to your TV and want to get this sound from your TV to output through your Koss.

Their should be a menu to activate the Optical Input but I can't find the manual to advise the correct menu.

I'll keep looking for a manual so if you can't find the menu let me know and I'll see what I can do to guide you in the right direction.

What input or channel does my samsung plasma tv need to be on to play the nintendo wii


If you have the AV inputs, use them. Use AV1, not AV2.
(If you use the AV2 input, there might be action delay between the controllers and the Wii.)
If you don't, just select VIDEO 2.

When I try to set our TV to locate digital channels, the menu skips the channel selection when I scroll through options of picture, audio, channel, lock, setup. All the options are available.


It sounds like your TV is on a different input. If you watch your cable from an external cable box, and this box is plugged into your TV using wires that are yellow, red, and white, or red, blue, green, red and white, you're currently watching TV on a different input than the one used for the antenna. Channels in a TV are controlled by the tuner. The tuner is the silver, threaded, post on the back of a TV, DVR, converter box, or VCR, that you plug an antenna or cable wire to. The tuner contols channels while the other inputs on your TV carry a direct signal like a computer to a monitor. So when you use something other than coaxial cable to connect cable to your TV, you can't access the channel menu while on that input. To access that menu, change the TV's input or source to TV or stop when you see a channel number on the screen. You have to be on the TV or tuner input in order to access the channel menu. If you're on any other input such as, S-Video, AV1, AV2, component (Yp Br Cr), HDMI, etc. you will not be able to do a channel scan. You have to be on the right input or source.

Input Problem


Mine was the same, except i also could not access HD Components.
Unfortunately i had to get some one in, as the circuit board at the back of the tv was burnt out.You might have to get a technician in to service and replace the burnt circuit board.

Can't switch from AV2 to AV1 with Samsung DVD-VR375 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo


To be able to select AV1, you have to first go into the setup menu and set the control set top box setting to OFF. I think you go to the menu >> setup >> features >> set top box control >> select OFF. Note that this has the side effect of erasing any previously stored timer settings.
