Question about Samsung TXH1970 TV

2 Answers

No remote; cannot receive cable

I was given a TXH1970 TV.  No remote was included.  The cable connection in the room works fine on a different TV.  I plug the cable into the back of the TXH1970 and get 3 or 4 stations and indication that it is "AIR" or "ANTENNA".  Pushing the menu button on the TV gives me some choices but does NOT allow me to switch to cable.  There is only the ONE cable connection at the back and the A/V jacks.  Suggestions

Re: No remote; cannot receive cable

Latino, thanks once again for trying to solve this problem.  I called Samsung and they said "universal remotes do NOT work with the on-screen menu.  However, I then plugged the cable in (did that the first time) and tried the on-screen menu when it was on a channel, not just a "snow screen".  The menu worked with the TV buttons and I am now successfully receiving all the cable stations I desire!

Connect a Cable Box to a Receiver:
1 Gather all your tools, parts and cables together before you start the connection process. Chances are you will need to connect several items at the same time, including your TV, audio system and TV cable receiver. Your cable box manual is likely to include a diagram of how to make the appropriate connections, so it's important that you read it before attempting any links.
2 Connect the output of the cable box to the input of the receiver. If you are connecting an audio system as well, make sure the audio output cables go directly into the receiver and, from there, to the cable box. Avoid direct connections; instead, go through the receiver for all secondary connections.
3 Select the correct jacks for sound and video. A newer model of receiver should offer several options, including analog TV out and DTV out. It should also offer an S-video and a service port. Depending on the type of cable box you use, one or more of the same jacks will be available there, too. When connecting both systems, make sure cables go between similar outputs.
4 Use an S-video connection cable to link your TV with your cable box. S-video connection cables allow you to preserve good quality in both image and audio. Most cable boxes come with S-video connection cables, but you can get them at any electronics store. Once you have them, simply connect both ends to the right output. It'll be easy to identify, because it's usually the only round one available.
5 Plug the TV, cable box and receiver into an electrical outlet to make sure everything is working properly. If you are getting static or interference, you may need to tighten the connections or change the cables.

We would be happy to help get that fixed right away. Theissue that you are having sounds like it is affecting the TV that is closest toyour receiver; we call it your TV1. The first thing we want to ensure is thatall connected equipment is on. Check what type of cable is used to connect theTV to the receiver. If you are using a Coax Cable to connect the receiver toTV1, check the receiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver hasa "TV CH 3/4 Out" (non-ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel4, back if it is labeled "Home Distribution" (ViP Receiver):Tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) toconnect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears; MostTVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or "Source"button. We want to ensure that the TV and the receiver are connected properly,please visit this link to for more information: Once we havemade sure everything is connected properly, unplug receiver for 10 seconds thenplug it back in, this will reset the receiver. If we are still not getting apicture connect another component (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) to the same TV, usingsame cable, same input, and same channel to see if it works. If you get apicture with the other component give us a call at 1-800-333-DISH (3474) forsome additional troubleshooting. If it doesn't work with the other componentthen replace the cable that was used.

We hope these steps resolve the issue. We want to thank you for being a valuedDISH Network customer!

I have a Samsung TXH1970. Is there any way to increase the maximum volume? Sometimes when I turn up the volume to maximum it still seems not loud enough. I have tried lowering the sound with the remote...

The audio section of our TVs is often combined in a single integrated circuit. You can buy these with differing degrees of gain and power and some sets are built to sell at a certain price level so cost-cuts are made in areas like this. There is not normally any internal controls that can limit or raise the sound level.
What you might consider: Check front and back to see if you find the standard 3.5 millimeter 'headphone jack.'
If so, check at any department store or computer outlet for a pair of 'stereo speakers' intended for desktop computers. These are amplified by an internal amplifier in one side and the other side is plugged into the main speaker. These sets are small and cheap; often under $20 although they range upward to $100s as well. If you just want more volume, these will provide it, but the cheapest are no 'hifi' by any means.
The link below to eBay will show you a typical set of these with a 3.5mm plug and the power ratings are at least believable; many are not.

Won't receive channels above 18, cable not at fault

Your "tuner" in the menu is set on "off air" or "antenna. It should be set on "cable" or "dish". See if you can go into your menu with the buttons on the set and change your tuner setting. Keever

Cable TV connection

Hi, A couple of possibilities: 1. Line loss, some of the cables might be too long, shorted, loose ground, not connected right; 2. Splitter - passive splitter, you might be better off using a distribution amplifies (with gain control pref); 3. RFI - TV interference from external sources. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

You should be able to use your remote control to do this.Your channel 73 is more than likely UHF 73 so you need to put your tv in the antenna setting rather than cable setting. Once you do this just input 73 with your remote. Hope this helps! Stargazer
