HOW DO I USE side buttons to get tohdmi1 and stay there, it keeps going back to the tv?


Hello Vicki Shaw,

My "side buttons" are on a big 8 yr old SAMSUNG...
(USA model (not a smart tv))... Look for your (input)
"SOURCE" button.

I can only "select" video sources that actually have
active VIDEO signals on them....

So ... just a guess here:
You will need to verify the HDMI1 source is active...

FROM your "side buttons" you will note that the
"SOURCE" button when tapped will display a
SOURCE... within a few seconds ... (if active)
Your set will start to display the ACTIVE MEDIA

(or the indiscriminate noise of the DIGITAL
"BROADCAST" input (again: still no smarts))...

Else mine will switch back to the next recognized
input (in my case a CCTV server).

Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:
  1. Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors.
  2. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
    Press the CH button to display a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal.
    For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV, switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away.
    If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and .
    If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Open OSD to adjust the picture:
    Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. 
    If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV. If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,

How do I get the signal on tv it used to work.my son pressed a couple of buttons and it hasn't worked since.i can't find my book for tv that come with it


seems like he may have pressed the source or input key on the remote however you can do this both ways to get things back in order by pressing the source or input key and the tv should turn back to the source you want (if however no signal still try going into the tv's menu and look for a dish icon (samsung tvs) and change it from air to cable or if cable to air) if the source isnt cable choose HDMI for your set top box (dish network direct TV or spectrum box)

Why no picture, just snow?


Hey! We have a Samsung so it's prob not exactly like yours, but I thought it may be close enough. When our TV does this it's compliments of our 2.5 yr old.
........so on mine........
*Remote*
Hit [SOURCE]
choose - HDM1 satellite STB

*Side of the TV*
On mine you just press the side there's no "button"
It's SOURCE too. I just press it until the snow goes away.

Hope this some!! =)

No signal on tv


Your Samsung has an Input Source button on the remote. If you are getting a "No Signal" message, you either have no cable, dish, antenna, or HDMI input to the television or have the wrong source selected. With the television turned on and/or a cable box, dish etc turned on, select all of your sources until a picture appears.

Make sure your cable box is on and on a channel that you normally watch so that we know there is video being transmitted to the TV,then useing the remote that came with the TV press the button that is labeled " input" or " source" multiple times until you see a picture back on your TV screen. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Nosignal when i power it on


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} If you are trying to view the DVD on the Samsung TV, you need to firstly connect the DVD to the appropriate connection on the TV.

Once connected, with a Samsung TV, you need to press the SOURCE button on the TV remote control to view any external sources such as your DVD player.

The ‘NO SIGNAL’ message would indicate there is no signal, if you have not tuned your channels in, this may be the digital tuner you are viewing. Press the source button whilst a DVD is playing in the DVD and see if an image displays.

I pressed the source button by mistake, lost the picture with message 'No Signal'. I kept pressing it again when the picture came back but it is now fuzzy. Is there something else I need to do?


one thing you can do is reset the TV. You can go to menu, setting, then scroll down to the bottom and choose the reset all. The second thing is make sure that the source you have hooked up to the TV has good connection. Best way to test is to use a DVD player using HDMI or component cable.
