On your TV set remote are you selecting the proper input; for example when you have different devices connected to the back of your tv set, dvd player, vcr, cable box etc; you have to tell the tv which device you want to use by selecting the right one on your tv remove input selection.

SOURCE: TV not finding Digital Channels from Cable Box

We have Comcast and we plugged the cable straight into our Bravia, searched for Digital Channels and it found 131. We actually get all the HD channels that we had using the box, plus a few more. It's worth a try.

"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"

Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.

SOURCE: i cannot get a picture on the screen of my tv. I

Hi
Firstly and would remove all the leads from your TV and check them. If after checking your HDMI leads etc... and its still the same then i would reset the TV to the original Samsung settings. This is completed on your remote control by the following........

Turn your tv to standby, on the remote when in standby press the keys on the remote in the following order........ INFO.........MENU..........MUTE.........POWER ON.

You will now notice the picture comes on with the engineers settings in the background. With the direction keys on the remote scroll down to number 12 (RESET) Then press OK or the right direction key, Your tv will switch off and load the Samsung factory settings. Switch the TV back on and go through the setup procedure.Once completed then try your HDMI again.

If it is still failing then there is a strong possibility that your Eeprom IC on your main AV Board is corrupt and needs replacing. This should only be attempted if you have good soldering skills as they are Surface mounted and very small.
My advise if your skills are not that good is just to replace the main AV board (Scart Board) these usually sell for around £50 but WILL solve your problem.

I have gone trough everything i know here that would cure the fault, most times one of the above three will cure this, but im afraid other times its just time for a new AV board.

Hope iv helped some people out here.
Any comments or thumbs up appreciated.

Trying to hook up a PS4 2A Oli flat screen TV help please


its a ps4 so it comes with a hdmi cable. Place the hdmi cable into the back of the ps4 and put the other end into a hdmi input
on the TV . Don't know the TV but usually there are a number of HDMI input ports on most modern tv's.
Then switch tv source to HDMI .

Happy gaming Phillip

you will have to plug the usb cable into the controller and into the front of the PS4 and then charge the controller by pressing the power button on ps4. The controller has to be paired to the ps4. The manual that came with the ps4 should go into it in more detail.

I have been using TV as computer screen but it started saying run auto scan. took it off computer and it still has same message and I can't get remote to work


The input mode of your TV some how changed from your Monitor, (VGA, or HDMI, or PC in) to tuner, and it is trying to stations.
If you have an "INPUT" button on the TV set push it until your monitor comes back. If there is no INPUT or SOURCE button on the TV itself, you need to get a working remote.

How do I stop the aspect ratio from auto changing on my flat screen set up as the monitor for my computer?


When you set it to just scan the source will determine the scan. I would remove the bose from the unit and connect the cable or sat box directly to the hdmi in of the tv. if the problem persists check Samsung web site for software upgrade. If upgrade does not fix replace the main circuit board.

Projector powers up as normal, bulb comes on, displays Optoma logo on screen and menu will show on screen. The issue is that although I have 3 devices plugged into the HDMI port of the device using a HDMI...


There is a source lock and source button I would unlock source lock button and the push source button until you get to your hdmi input you are using. You also may just plug in one input first and once you get the input right play with the multiple hdmis

Picture is fine but no sound. I tried two different cable boxes and a wii system and no sound on any source. Any ideas?


I am here to help you solve the problem not trying to sell you parts that you may not needed.
Since you said you have no sound on ANY sources, that means it not the HDMI board since there is no such thing as HDMI board, the HDMI ports are on the same input board/or on the main board for all other the inputs as a whole. So you know for sure that the analog audio input RCA jacks (Red and White) do not work either?
If you olny use HDMI ports for all the sources, then you need to check the on screen HDMI audio setup to make sure that you want to have sound through HDMI port also, so you should try to set it to 'auto' in the HDMI sound setup because in HDMI mode you can select analog sound through RCA analog input or digital audio through HDMI port. You also need to verify that if your HDMI ports on your sources are also set to send digital audio through HDMI ports.
Please post back what you find.

When i go to hook up a hdmi cable to my philips flat screen it wont recognize that i have a hdmi plugged into it. so what could that be the tv? the hdmi works with my other tv though


Hi,
This model has 4 HDMI inputs, do you get same problem in each HDMI input?
Did you checked HDMI input with any other video source like dvd player or PS3 etc instead of cable box?
Below are few helpful tips to connect HDMI input..
1. Ensure that your HDMI cable is certified.
2. Press SOURCE on the remote control to switch to another source and then switch back to the HDMI source.
3. Reset the accessory device and the TV.
• Turn on the TV
• Select the HDMI channel
• Turn on the accessory device
4. While the TV and the accessory device are powered on, unplug either end of the HDMI cable and then reinsert the cable.
Try above options and if tv still does not show picture of any video source through HDMI then it seems problem of HDMI processor located on main board, visual check is needed by qualified tech or call Philips if tv is under warranty.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Hdmi not working


Please rephrase you get an "ant screen"?

Does the sound work? What is your hdmi video output device?

At any rate, you can also try this quick fix. In the setup menu go to Source Select. Make sure these settngs are right:

Assign>HDMI = HDMI 1 - 4 (depending on device)
Input Mode>Input Mode = Auto
Decod Mode>Decode Moe = Auto
Other>Video Convert = On

Set this for sources (devices) you have connected to the hdmi.

How to run channel auto scan


Okay here's how you do it. Sadly they buried this DEEP in the user guide and I stumbled across it -

Press the TV Menu button then with the < or > arrows scroll to the Channel menu. From there you can select the auto scan.

Only HDMI2 input works


try attaching all the sources you have to hookup, have the power on , on each unit and then go into tv menu and run auto program. if this is no help your tv may just need a firmware/software upgrade, I don't know if they give the download to the consumer or not but if the auto programming doesn't work call LG @ 800-243-0000 tell them your problem, 4 days old really don't recomend having extensive service work but it is under factyory warr. so you have the option but if they think it's the firmware upgrade and you have a usb flash drive they may send you an email with the software.
