LE32R8BDX Can anyone help me, I can't get PIP (Picture in Picture) to work. When I go into the menu, it is shaded out so can't access? Manual or website doesn't offer any suggestions.

Split your cable out of the wall twice. One will go to your cable box; ultimately going to box and out to hdmi cable. 2, from splitter, connect a second cable straight to the back of the tv and the pip will light up and then you can view two screens

My experience with an LE40R74BDX is that PIP is only available between the different input types of 1:- VGA, 2:- HDMI and 3:- everything else. It is not available between any 2 items in the everything else category. So you must have at least one of the other input types in use (I use HBMI for my cable box). Hope this reassures you, it's down to design not a fault.

PIP function does not work, the settings is greyed out also! I have a wii, PS3 and freesat :)

Hi nikkicollier,
PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.

I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
  • TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
  • PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
  • Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree.
To change your PiP settings:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
  2. Select PIP and press Enter.
  3. Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again.
    If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
  4. Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button.
    Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button.
    Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to.
    You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
You can download the full PDF manual for your TV here (large download at 26MB.) Much of the PIP information can be found on pages 13 and 14.
Good luck, I hope that helps.

Do I have to have the original remote to get the PIP (I'm assuming this means picture in picture)?

PIP is indeed Picture In Picture.

You may be able to activate it through the MENU button on the tv itself. You could check this by looking in your USER'S MANUAL. You can probably download a copy if you lost your original, just go to the TV manufacturer's website ( if the tv was a sony) and go to the SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS page and type in your tv's model number, then click on DOWNLOAD ENGLISH MANUAL.

Otherwise you will have to get a UNIVERSAL REMOTE, probably one of the fancier (read more expensive) ones with more buttons / options. No more than $30 I would think for a good ONE FOR ALL brand universal remote or something similar.

Good luck and please comment back if this was helpful.

Black square on screen that covers half the picture appeared on my 42" sharp aquos tv.

sounds like you might have PIP turned one (picture in picture) .. if there is no input hooked up for the PIP . you will just get a black screen ... you should be able to move that PIP around and change its size .. indeed turn it off .. look for a menu item called PIP .. select PIP off ..
