Comcastt HD Box indicates "Component 3 - Not supported mode"

I just bought a USED SAMSUNG MODEL HLN507WX/XAA.I connected the HD Box from Comcast and it indictes "Not Supported Mode" when using Component-3 inputs. It worked fine at the previous owner's home. He had the old type Comcast HD Box.I had it working for a while then the screen would begin flashing and state again "Not Supported Mode."Comcast can't seem to fix the problem over the phone.Any Ideas?Willie

    Change to the new Comcast box.
    After changing, turn on the box and wait 20 seconds for it to download.
    Then, on your remote,press "Cable", then "Power", then Menu.
    You will see the settings menu. Set the primary value to (1080i)
    and the override reading to (480p).
    The above is what I had to do to get it to work.
    You can play with the settings if that doesn't work, however the new box is 1080i. The old box is 720p.
    After you complete the settings, press "Power" and then select your connection on the TV remote.
    Hope this solves your problem
    Have a great day

Try HDMI if the TV has the inputs or swap the component cable.

One thing to try is whatever (a box?) connected to that input--remove power from for a short while and then plug back to see if that will reboot the unit connected there.

How do I connect to Sharp HDTV and Comcast cable


Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps

Hookup the comcast hd box to my new lcd tv?


You can use either component (Red/Green/Blue video and red/white audio) or HDMI cables to connect the Comcast HD box to your TV. Most times you can get these cables for free at the Comcast front counter.

The only time I have had issues like this was because of the Component Cables not being in the right position (the Red and Blue connections switched), or a bad Component Cable where the Blue Connection is not receiving a signal. Swap out the cable to be sure and double check that it is properly installed. Green to Green, Red to Red , Blue to Blue.
Hope this helps,

HD TV - Comcast - Samsung TV - "Component 3 not supported mode"


Hello willardlang,

This is because of the type of Component Video being used. Let me explain We got so use to the term RGB to explain component video we for got that there are two standards for component video and they are not compatible. These two standards are Component Analog Video (Y, R-Y, B-Y) and Component Digital Video (Y/Pb/Pr) or (Y/Cb/Cr)

Now, the problem is they never told us the public which one to use and when, they only told us RGB. Now to complicate things, you have have to figure out which one to use. So here is a helpful yet flawed hint:
If the TV was made after 2003 use Component Digital Video (Y/Pb/Pr) or (Y/Cb/Cr)
If the TV was made before 2003 use Component Analog Video (Y, R-Y, B-Y)

Yes this is flawed but for the most part it's good.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Television Won't Display Certain Cable Shows


Okay,i assumed this is what you have:
HD cable box with HDMI cable connection to the Samsung TV.
Listen careful as follow:
First you want to make sure using the same HD comcast box with HDMI connection for our Samsung TV as well as your other TV.Be sure the other TV do received the missing channels from the Samsung TV.You must be SURE you have tested both TVs with the same HDMI cable with the SAME HD cable box.
Now that you have confirmed the both TVS are using the same HD comcast box and the same HDMI cable but the connection that goes to the Samsung TV are missing some channels,at this point,use another HDMI connection behind your Samsung TV and see if you have the same problem.If so,please also try the left side of the HDMI connection and see if you could get the other channels.
Let me know!
