Question about Samsung LN-S3241D 32 in.LCD HDTV

2 Answers

After watching HDTV the tv will not switch back on when left for a few hours.

It seems to happen after i use my xbox 360 on HD, play for a few hours works fine, then watch some normal tv then turn off and go to bed, get up next morning and the tv will not switch on properly the standby light just blinks repeatedly. this has has happend 3 times within 2 months. i have checked my tv for overheating problems and it is not the case as it hs plenty of space behind and above it, and i only play a few hours not day and night, and there is no radiator in the area of the tv so overheating can not be the problm beforem u all say it :).. the shop repairing it have changed mainboards and diodes and it still not fixed they dont have a clue!!! can anyone shed some light before i exchange the tv for a new one due to it still being in warranty (thank god)!!! but will this happen again on same model?????

Just found out through my own experience that LCD tv's can overheat when hooked up to the xbox 360 or wii. In my case, after many hours of play on either console, the heat generated is increased to the point that the tv will not turn back on till the fans have cooled the unit. The cooling can take hours depending on how hot the tv components got. In my case I removed the heat shield to allow heat to escape more rapidy. This worked in a matter of minutes and my tv was operational once again. My solution is to find a tv that will not be affected by the increased heat that these game consoles generate. My gripe is that these consoles are created to utilize HDTV. I have had my HDTV for 6 years and never had a problem till I hooked it up to the xbox 360 or wii. Never tested the playstation. I'm sure there are HDTV's that can handle these consoles. I would research and find out what specific brands are not having problems. I know you think it's not your tv but ask yourself if these problems occur when you don't use your game consoles. In my case this is the only time I have overheating issues, however, the game console was on for long hours at a time. I truly believe if you purchase the same tv and hook your 360 to it you will encounter the same problems.
Hope this helps.

I'm afraid i have no solution for you, but i thought it might help to know that i have the same problem, mine will sometimes take up to half an hour to turn on, while i have to sit and listen to the clicking sound, and watch the power led flash on and off! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! sorry i couldn't help though.

If you are using a HDMI connection, often the connection will be lost between your xbox and your tv. In my case I simply change to another channel or the other HDMI channel and then back and the secure HDMI connection will be restored.

The Xbox console is overheated.
  1. Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.
  2. Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating.
  3. If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support.
To try to prevent this problem, follow these precautions:
  • Don't block any ventilation openings on your Xbox 360 console.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console on a bed, on a sofa, on a carpet floor, or on any other soft surface that may block ventilation openings.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console in a confined space, such as a bookcase, a rack, or a stereo cabinet, unless the space is well ventilated.
  • Don't put your Xbox 360 console near any heat source, such as a radiator, a heat register, a stove, or an amplifier.
Taken from Microsoft support.

Best of Luck.

Xbox 360 turns on, but nothing shows on the screen


If the person that you bought it from on E-Bay had an HD Television. Then the Xbox console is set into HD from the Display options. If your TV is not HD, then It will not display. It can also be the other way around, if His TV is standard and yours is HD. Also try looking at the RCA's(The Part that plugs into the 360) And you will see a slider. Switch the slider, then turn it on. Tell me if that works, if Not, tell me and I will tell you what to press on your 360 controller to set the other menu. Hope this helps.

No picture or sound on the tv


where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!

Is the tv rated for HD? if its not the inputs will be at a wrong voltage and will create that snow like effect.

Is the TV you normally game on HD?
