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

I have exactly the same problem with the same tv. But my magic eye is working as when I change the channel in the second room using the sky remote it changes downstairs. But I can't seem to get a picture anywhere on the samsung tv. Please help! Regards Paul.

My 32 inch samsung lcd tv has got faint black lines running down the screen ,its nearly 4 years old but i expected it to last longer than that,and ive had sky hd box recently would that have anything todo...


Are these lines on both side of the screen or what location are they in? They can be caused by watching 4:3 television with the black bars on both sides. Watching 16:9 full screen HD wont cause issues with that. If only on the sides there is not much you can do except put a pure white screen on the TV and leave that on for at least 6 hours. This will age the panel a little but in theroy wil even the pixel burn you have to make the lines less noticable. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you

Picture Flashing


I have a similar problem but my picture flashes black and white and the sound goes at the same. Also sometimes it will flash pink and blue. I've read elsewhere that the issue is a known problem with compatability between Samsung tv's and sky boxes. Apparently the box needs to be replaced but I'm unsure what type of box. I've read perhaps a PACE sky box could fix the problem. I think the best option would be to contact Samsung - that's what I'm going to do.
