Stopped receiving sky on second tv - does my samsung need a reset

Hi
I have a Samsung LE32R74BDX 32 inch tv. I have been receiving Sky tv on this TV via a TV link (magic eye) for a couple of years but all of a sudden it stopped. I have been through all the processes of checking/changing the channels, resetting digibox, changing cables. The magic eye light is on and the remote works (remotely) on the main tv using the magic eye. I've tried plugging the second tv in directly to the box via the RF out but that doesn't work either (only vague sound) but it does work if I plug in via the skart lead. So it seems it's not receiving the signal via the aerial (coaxial) in socket on the TV. Does this seem like a TV problem? Do I need a TV engineer or a new digibox?

I install a lot of magic eyes etc.

You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.

the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.

Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.

If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.

Hope this sorts out your problem

Cheers

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Overlapping video signals are generally adjustments made when turning various pots on the rear circuit board. You may need the service manual to follow the directions on how to reset and stabilize the picture. If you cannot be your own technician; you have no choice or other options.
