The tuner in RCA is a known issue. I recommend connecting the satellite with RGB (Red-Green-Blue) component cables and red/white sound cables and use video. The picture will be better. The tuner repair can be pricey $$$
This TV does not use a bulb. It is a Picture tube type set. *No picture but there is a dim background. Menu works. This is caused by a bad signal. Perhaps the video cable is bad if you use a cable box. The HDMI cable may not be working right. Try a new cable. *No picture, no menu This could be caused by a failure in the part that draws the picture up and down (The vertical). Can also be the side to side (Horizontal) or a high voltage problem. The last usually kills the sound as well so its not as likely. If the cable does not fix it, you will likely need a technician.
Sounds like you're stuck on..... Video 1 or Video 2 (whichever). If you can access your TV's menu at the front panel, you should be able to switch over fairly easy. Hit MENU. Using your VOLUME UP & DOWN buttons, Go to CABLE/SATELITE/ANTENNA, hit VOLUME UP or DOWN 'til it switches back to TV picture then hit ENTER. If you do not have an access panel in front but possibly have any other remote (cable or satelite or home theater, etc...) that can be paired with this TV and has an INPUT button, you can change the setting that way.
well first of did you move the tv because not all outlets are active in a home correct practice for cable tech is to only actvate used lines due to open ports causing ingress/ picture issues. if that is the case easy fix either move it to where it was or try to identify the old cable and swap it or best suggestion call the cable company if its cox I know they do not charge to change outlet
Please check if exchancing powercord helps and preferably to other power connection.
Do check your signal generating device
Antenna - RF ?
Set top box (Cable or satelite)
DVD or VCR for broken connection.
They could be the cause also and not the TV.
A broken soldering on a euroscart connectort is treaseurous on a VCR or so. I open those up and check scart connectort on board solderings or check cable for loose connections.
If nothing there or you not technical enough call in a handy guy from the block before cleaned out.
I had a bad digital board also. I went to parts.com to order a new part way cheaper than from repair service. the only problem I had was that after installation which is super easy 4 cables to unplug and replug. when I turned on the TV the picture came in upside down, not good. no one would give me the code to flip the screen as it is in a hidden menu, well after months of searching the web I found it!! It works for most all newer Samsung TV's. turn the TV off, hit mute then 182 and then power on button on the remote. the "hidden" menu will pop up and you scrool down to h-flip and flip the screen. I don't recommend messing with any of the other setting as you could likely really jack up the TV but at least you can fix it for a 3rd of the cost you would spend otherwise.
I have never seen this tv have a problem that turns the picture all green. What is signal source, (cable or satelite) and are you using component cables? Make sure your cables are good and that they are plugged in properly on both ends as a defec or loose component cable or a bad cable or satelit receiver can cause this problem.
I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white.
There are different resolutions now.
The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal.
Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution.
If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input.
Hope this helps.
