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.

just spoke to Samsung support and it turns out that the freeview tuner had froze and needed resetting. To do this put TV on standby and then push in series these buttons on the remote: 'info, menu, mute, power' the TV will then turn itself on and display a menu. Press the 'down arrow' untill you've highlighted option 12 - 'reset' and then press the 'right arrow' to enter the option. TV will turn off and when you turn back on it will start in 'plug & play' mode as if new. Set the time and country options and then it will perform a complete scan. I've just retuned mine and all back to normal. Hoorah!!!! :-)

I have an RCA Powertrak tv that does not have the remote. I have a cable box that has an audio imput section that i hooked to my xbox 360. I have run an auto program and it does not find the channels that...


First, remove the XBox from the cable box and move it to the TV inputs. Use the menu on the front of the TV to change the input device you have plugged the XBox into and it will work. In other words, connect the XBox to AV2 in the rear of your television and select AV from the menu as the input for your device and the XBox screen will appear. If you reconnect your cable to the cable input on your cable box and connect the output to your AV1 on the TV, it will detect your stations, as long as you select Cable from the menu for input type. Let m know if you understand what I am saying.

Hi about a month ago my samsung 42" stopped showing free view it just says no signal have checked everything i still have a signal on the tvs up stairs off the same aerial


Hi,

The first thing you should do, is connect the Samsung TV to one of the working aerial inputs upstairs, and then run the auto-setup / digital channel scan. If it works, it's most likely a localised problem with the aerial cable - or you accidentally selected a different external input.

Try this simple test first and then post back with the results. I will then try to assist you further.

I get a 'weak or no signal' message and can't get an AV2 choice at all , just 'free to air' tv channels


reception issues require a better signal source, attic or roof antenna should solve your dilema
Samsung should stop at AV2 when something is plugged in the correct socket, if it doesn't check for a bad cable.

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.
