Question about Flat Panel Televisions
I have this unit connected to my cable and it shows some of the channels but not all of them. I have done an Auto Search, but it still does not show all of the channels. Can you help me?
SOURCE: auto channel search.
Check the r/c[remote control] for ' fresh ' batterys.
Do you have " air wave " reception? or cable connection?
air wave reception will scan but cable reception can't scan because the channel is 'fixed' at ch.3 or ch.4.

A lot of the " auto channel scan " etc. need a certain signal strength. you could have too meny tvs,equipment or anything connected to the "signal giver" that is sucking the signal strength.Not just turn off ALL connections to signal but disconnect the antenna 'input' to any equipment (sometimes people connect cable wires to radio receivers for stronger & better signals.)
You could have a open circuit to the input of the equipment in trouble.If you know how to get inside (with out killing yourself) connect an antenna directly to the end of the line of the intanna input INSIDE of the TV. if the signal comes in and the tv 'autoscans' and locks channels, then you have a open wire leading into the circuit.
p.s. BE CAREFUL!!, IF YOU don't know how or what you are doing.........DON'T DO DAT !! [that]

Just a solution.
I attached a video recorder., and selected the video channel.
I was able then to see the channels through another AV slot extension.
Then I reset the TV to factory settings.
Samsung full HD reset code is 0000.
I used the original remote control.
I pressed the button TV/DTV to switch between mode., and from the menu I started
the option to scan the channels automatically.
Because the VCR was still connected it looks like it was forced to admit the channels.
I turned off the VCR and click on the TV the remote control for a known channel ( alternative control used) and surprise ... The TV started to react according to expected.
I disconnected then physically the cabling from the VCR and plugged in directly on back on the
wall connector. All is ok.
What was the reason ?
My wife dropped the alternative remote control ( not the original one) on the floor, and apparently an strange code was sent to the TV., which suddenly displayed " No signal".
I hope this can work for you.

SOURCE: I get no sound or
I'm having sound problems with Gem too, as are others, apparently. If you are getting program info but no picture for either of these, however, I suspect that you may only have a SD digital receiver, rather than a HD (High Definition) one. Can you receive the One HD sports channel? If not, that will be it for sure.
