You need to set the TV to input from the source that the computer is connected to.

You also need to make sure the computer is set to output a signal to it's S-video or video out port (usually Fn F5 or something like that, or there may be an software switch in your desk tray where it is to be tripped.)

    Then how do you have the computer hooked to the TV?

  • Mark Egan Jan 27, 2009

    So the TV has a VGA input?

    If so, have you told the TV to look at the VGA input port?


  • Mark Egan Jan 28, 2009

    OK. Do you know that the VGA output does work out of the computer? Have you connected just a computer monitor to the computer just to confirm?

  • Mark Egan Jan 28, 2009

    OK. And no, the audio out makes no difference for video.

    Either you -

    1) Have a bad cable connected from the VGA out of your computer, to the VGA in of your TV,
    2) or you don't have the TV set to look at the VGA port,
    3) or you're not giving me all the info about the setup your using.

Just hooked my Samsung SP-S4243 up do hdmi cable but it won't display full screen.


Sounds like the cable box is outputting in 4:3 rather than 16:9, it should also output in either 720p or 1080i/1080p. Check the settings on your cable box and set them to 16:9 and 1080i/180p. If that does not rectify the problem then you need to look at the settings on your Samsung

No, you cant. I have 2 tvs just like yours but the LN model is newer than the SP model tv. I have the same problem, my LN tv has a cracked screen and the other SP model is good

Samsung SP-S4243 has a constant buzzing noise


This is most probably you inverter board making the sound, most probably a bad solder joint, It would be hard for me to help you any further, but if it is a bad solder joint it could be repaired. Most shops no longer repair boards they just replace them.
If you have the knowledge you could do this, but I would recommend it other wise, there is High Voltage to deal with. I hope this helps. Merry Christmas!

Black borders


Check the resolution settings on your cable box, you may have to call your cable provider to find out how to get into the settings menu, there is a stretch function in the settings that should make all the lower channels auto fit your screen, also see if there's a p=size button on your remote control, try pushing that when on the channels that have sidebars.
