Re: Samsung 46" lcd hdtv
Hello carp girl,
This may denote a proble in either your switching powers supply or your Horizontal section derived high voltage power supply. These are both very dangerous sections in your television. My next question is important; do you have a background in electronics? If not I would not advise you working on this problem yourself and that you take the TV to a repair shop for servicing. If you do have some background in electronics, I would like for you to make the following obeservations:
Is the set newly purchased or refurbished/old?
What was happening prior to the set going out?
Are there any sounds coming from the set when you turn it on "like clicking or buzzing"?
Has the set been dropped or had fallen in any way off of what it was sitting on?
Was the set plugged in during a storm?
These are some questions to develop some background into what may have happened which lead up to the trouble you are reporting.

It looks like this TV only has old style inputs, in other words, no hdmi and no vga. If your laptop is older and has a s-video output you can purchase a S-Video cable to plugin to the laptop and to the tv. Put the TV on that input, then on the laptop, there is usually 2 buttons you have to look for, fn (usually int he lower left of the keyboard) and the crt/lcd button, usually shared with one of the f keys at the top of the keyboard and even more usually shared with f8 - so, if it is on f8, you would hold fn and press f8 several times until you get the display on the screen.
If your laptop does not have s-video output you could purchase a vga to composite converter and hook it up to the laptop and then to the TV, then use the aforementioned fn+f8 9or whichever has the crt/lcd label on it as well.
Hard to perfectly answer as you haven't provided the model of your laptop, but this should point you in the right direction.
My Samsung TXN3271HF had the same issue where the poorly-designed Soft-Touch channel button begin to register phantom touches (leading to the "Not Available" message flashing on the screen).
The fix is simple: remove the plastic strip containing the Soft-Touch buttons and when replacing the strip, leave some room between the buttons and the TV's circuit board (you will see the circuit board once you remove the plastic strip).
It sounds like your cables are connceted ok, but what you neede to do is to be able the switch from one video mode to the other so lets go through the cable and vrc conncetions again just to make sure.
From your cable set top box connect your component video (RGB) video out to your TV (RGB) video in via the (RGB)cables.
From your VCR connect your composite video (yellow) out to your TV composite video in withe the composite video (yellow) cable.
From your VCR (Left & Right audio out)connect your left and right audio connections (White and Red) to the Audio in of the TV (Left and Right).
Whith this setup you should be able to use the TV to switch between the two A/V inputs using the remote control.
