Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

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

I purchased a TV from a local here in Jacksonville. It worked fine on his previous HD Box. It is a different model than what I have now.
The screen states: "Component 3 - Not Supported Mode"

Some CSRs can fix and others can't.

Any ideas?

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,

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

If this is still problematic ask Comcast to service the problem and request one of the older, larger, silver HD with HDMI capable boxes. The other option is to use the component cable with the new boxes. I had the same problem and luckily a good technician who took his job seriously! I think I overheard him saying too that a DVR is an option as well, but you, if the technician doesn't offer, would have to state an argument for why you should not be charged extra for using one of those. Hope this helps? Nice to get to the root of problems! I'm keeping my fingers crossed because they had to order the older box. None were left in stock?

Hdtv picture freeze


I also have a Brand new Sony Bravia 52" LCD with Comcast Cable (motorola box).When switching between HD Channels sometimes the left side of the screen shows a smushed version of the new channel, and the right side is a frozen picture of the previous channel. I correct this by switching to a non HD channel and back. Cable or TV problem I wonder?

"Not supported Mode" message


Hook up the component cables on the tv and the dtv box
go to set up on the menu select HDTV or display and deselect all of the 480i and 480p and in some cases also the 720 and only select 1080i to be display. you can then hook up your hdmi cable again and it shoud be supported. Let me know if that works.
