Reception issues require a better signal source, attic or roof antenna should solve your dilema
Samsung should stop at AV2 when something is plugged in the correct socket, if it doesn't check for a bad cable.

How do i get the TV to play satellite? it just says weak signal when I turn the tv on. JVC RM-C18G


It has to be on the right channel. If you are supposed to be on channel 3, 61, 73, 113 (ask the satellite company which one you should be on) then you'll have to change the channel. If you are not supposed to be on a channel you have to find out which input you're supposed to be on (video 1, video 2, video 3, av 1, av 2, av 3, hdmi 1, hdmi 2, input 1, input 2, input 3 for example).

Can't record from TV to VCR


Most TV's send a signal out using Scart 2(AV2 on remote). So connect a scart to AV2 and to the AVin on the recorder, set the timer or manually record using the AVin as the channel. Unfortunatly you cannot use video plus as this would set to record from a normal channel. As I am not familier with the make of your tv, it's not a guaranteed solution, but I am 80% sure there is a way of sending the DTV signal out through one of the scart sockets.

Turn tv on and get no program or weak signal message.


You should be watching tv in no time. Email me and let me know how it went I would like to know if I was able to help. surfpro@yopmail.com

1-You didn't say what model tv you have. Is it a HDTV?
2-Are you using an over the air (roof) or set top antenna connected to the tv?
3-Are you getting the no program or weak signal message on all channels?
4-Have you tried first cycling through the source or input button to make sure you are on TV and not on an input. Sometimes if you are on an input and for example the device connected to that input is off you wil get a no signal until you turn the device first but you probably already know that.
5-When you were in the process of scanning for channels assuming you had an over the air antenna connected did you make sure and select the ota option and not cable? if you have an ota antenna and not cable you need to select ota before scanning for channels.

Now assuming you have an ota antenna and you chose ota before scanning or doing a re scan and after the scan you still get the no program or weak signal message that means there is no signal and you may be using the wrong antenna or try moving the antenna in the direction of the television tower if you know where that is or turn in another direction but unless you are using the wrong antena you should get something.

Assuming you received some channels or even if you did not, try to and add channels by hand. Heres how: first you need to know the RF frequency channel or digital channel its transmitting on you just cant input the number of the display channel you want like on a tube at least not initially but you can after you first input the rf or digital channel number first and saving it on your tv then you can just input the display channel number you are used to. Heres how to manually force the tv to enter a channel without a scan or re scan and possibly loosing other channels with a rescan.

Go here http://www.rabbitears.info/search.php and go to state search choose your state from drop down list and click search now do you see the list of stations? on the left you have the display channel (thats the number you usually entered on a regular tv) and next to that is the digital channel (thats the number you need to enter on an hdtv or dtv initially to force the tv to accept the channel because if you just enter the number your used to initially the tv wont find it) the tv should now automatically redirect you to the channel you are normally used to and any digital equivalent and any sub channels for that channel. Now save it into memory in your tv menu channel list. do this for every channel for your area if you were unable to pick up any stations during a scan.

Weak or no signal message


  1. Since my problem (Samsung/Comcast) began with a channel selection button pushed on the TV remote when it should have been pushed on the cable remote, I figured the problem lay with the TV.  Although I was getting the "weak or no signal" msg., the actual signal strength bar graphic showed it to be strong. Disconnecting did no good. I surmised that the TV was simply not recognizing the box.
  2. I looked at the manual for my Samsung 750 model. 
  3. Page 20 discussed "Selecting the source". I accessed the TV menu and selected "Input", then chose the "HD..." item from the highlighted list. Voila! My tv works again.
