Question about Samsung 8000 Series UN60F8000BF 60" LED Smart TV 1920x1080, 240 Hz, HDTV, 3D
I recently just bought this TV at Best Buy. I was on my computer and when i went to watch some TV I saw that the antenna in cable was unplugged. So I plugged it back in and the screen was all hazy. The text on the guide was really blurry and had ghost effects. The definition of the menu in the smart hub, menus not including the cable, were all clear and high definition. Please help I don't wan't anything happening to this TV because I spent a fortune on this.
If you hooked up a computer then you are watching a local tv station the video will be affected. their will be an interference on the signal. you must disconnect the cable going to the computer first.

Basically, blurry pictures is a fundamental mismatch between the resolution capability of your TV and the resolution of the analog signal. The standard, analog signal is a low definition, 480i signal with a resolution of approximately 640 x 480. In most cases, your LCD TV is a high definition TV with a resolution capability of 1366 x 768, 1440 x 900, or 1920 x 1080. It is this mismatch between the standard signal resolution and the TV resolution that causes the picture to be stretched and scaled, blurring the image.
Fixing the Problem
There is no way to fix this mismatch in resolution besides switching to an HD signal. There are, however, three ways you may be able to minimize the blurriness problem:
* Reducing the picture size to 4:3
* Using the Sharpness function
* If you are using a cable box or some other external device, changing the connections
All three are described below.
Reducing the Picture Size to 4:3
If you are watching an analog channel or transmission, and the picture is fuzzy, you may be able to clear up the picture by reducing the size of the picture to 4:3, the native size of analog TV pictures.
To change the picture size to 4:3, press the P.Size button on your remote until 4:3 appears on the screen. The 4:3 picture has black or grey borders on the left and right.
Using the Sharpness Function
If the picture on your LCD TV is blurry, you may be able to clear it up with the Sharpness function. To use the Sharpness function on most Samsung LCD TVs, follow these steps:
1. Turn on your TV.
2. Press the MENU button on your remote. [The Main menu appears]
3. Press the Up or Down arrow button on your remote to select Picture, and then press the ENTER button. [The selection bar moves into the Picture menu]
4. Use the Up or Down button on your remote to select Sharpness.
Note: On some model LCD TVs, you use the Enter button to select Sharpness.
6. Use the Right arrow button on your remote to increase the sharpness.
7. Press the EXIT button to exit.
If You Are Using A Cable Box Or Other External Device
If you are using a cable box or other external device confirm that you are connected with Component (Pb, Pr, and Y) or HDMI connections.
Lastly, your connection cable might be failing and maybe that's the blurry picture displays at first, then goes back to normal later. So make sure cable connections to the TV are firm.
I hope you understand the above.

For best performance I recommend you connect a HDMI cable from the PS3 to the HDMI input on your TV.
To display the PS3 you need to select the HDMI input on your TV.
