Question about Samsung LTN1785W 17 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

Light and dark?

No matter what video input I have on, the screen is always dark for the most part except for a strip of screen which is lighter 3/4 of the way up the screen. Anyone know what would be causing this? Thanks.

Hi I have a l32wd12 r a TV and it will not turn on

If the clock is on then the unit is receiving power; maybe the external input feature (which tells the TV which outside source to display on the screen, e.g. cable TV, DVD player, VCR player, etc.) is not set to display the TV channels. On my Sony TV there is a button that displays TV setting options (e.g., Favorites, TV List, External inputs and settings). The external inputs function displays the options as video 1, video 2, etc., right up to video 6. My video 3 is for the VCR, video 4 is for the DVD, and video 5 is for the cable TV channels. If the TV is set for say video 3 and nothing is playing on the VCR, the screen will be dark (almost as though the TV is off). Your solution might be as simple as choosing the right external (video) input for the TV to receive the channel signals.

Vertical Bars Horizontal Lines on LED TV

Check the input connections. If Ariel connection, or other video input connection from any external source have loose contact, or wire broken, this type of interference can occur to picture.

Delay in lighting from dark to light scenes and then back.

Look for auto-contrast or something. Turn it off. Picture will be steady. I hate this feature in most flat panel tv's and it's not needed. You may have to set static contrast after that.

Blue screen, no video, but has sound

Did you hit the "input" or "video source" button by mistake on the remote or TV? That would change the input from the one the cable/video source uses. You're getting sound, so it's working......sounds as if the input was maybe changed. I'd hit the input/video source button a few times to go through all the available inputs and see if you get video back.

Dark Vertical Stripe on Right Edge of Screen

I experienced the same approx. 1/2" vertical stripe on a Viewsonic vx1945 and ATI Radeon x1050 video adapter on Vista Business SP1, but the stripe appeared along the left edge of the screen, instead of right edge. I then temporarily decreased the monitor resolution, and the stripe went away. I then increased the monitor resolution back to its original setting, and the stripe did not re-appear. So, that was the 'fix' in my situation, hope this helps.
