Question about Samsung LE26R73BDX 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Digital Tv stopped working

When I switch over to digital TV I am stuck on a single channel and can not change channels, see the digital menu, the guide text etc. In fact the only thing that I can change is the volume. The tv works fine for analogue television and was fine for digital until last week.
Any suggestions gratefully received.

Stuck on one channel

Is it the tv's remote? Change the batteries
are you on a cable box? You need to use the providers channel changer. Tv is made to stay on one channel like channel 3 and the cable box runs the different channels.

WHAT is this tv digital ?

Dear Friend,
First, search for available air channels by going to you menu and then search for channel setup.
Second: change the option from Cable to Air Channels.
Third: after performing the channels setup you should be able to see free channels trough the air.
Good Luck!

I have grundig lenaro 32"tv

Sounds like you're only viewing analogue channels.
Go into Menu and find Inputs and select & choose DTV. This will restore reception of Freeview (Digital TV) channels.

My mintek dtv-373-d is stuck on encrypted channela nd will not do anything else. I can't get the menu to come up or anything to change. help

I'm assuming you have Cablevision. This is becoming a known problem with their broadcasting system. They have been upgrading and it has been causing the TVs to freeze up on a specific channel .

Simple way to fix it:
1. Unplug tv
2. Unplug coax from tv
3. Plug tv back in
4. In the Menu go to Setup > CH setup > CH Memory > Cable (digital)
5. Enable channel skip for channel that it is currently stuck on
6. Push Menu to exit
7. Change to any other channel
8. Reconnect coax to tv.

Avoid this channel and go give Cablevision a call and let them know about it. They won't do anything to fix it until they get a certain number of reported issues about the problem

Digital channels have stopped working, only blue screen!

Try resetting the TV:

  1. Switch on TV and switch to any analogue channel.
  2. On the TV: Press and hold the MENU button.
  3. Menu screen will appear on the display.
  4. Do not release the MENU until the menu screen disappears.
  5. TV will go blank for about 60 seconds and then display initial set up screen.
  6. Follow the on-screen prompts to re-tune the TV.
If this does not work then the problem is likely to be a loose ribbon cable or main small signals board inside the TV.

TV gets stuck on channel, won't advance past channel 7.1

Try doing the Channel Search again. See if that helps.

If not, sounds like the Digital Board could be defective. Since this TV is brand new suggest calling your local sharp authorized service center to replace that board under warranty.

Cannot change channels in digital mode

Solution that worked for me:

Beware: Although the process should be safe, it technically voids your warranty.

Enter the service menu:
1 - turn of tv with remote
2 - press and release in the following order on the remote: Info, Menu, Mute. Make sure remote is pointing at the tv
3 - turn on the tv from the remote
4 - you will see the service menu. using the down arrow on the remote select the Reset option. Using the right arrow button at this point will do a hard reset.
5 - Wait a few seconds, turn TV on
6 - you will have to rescan analogue and digital channel but it should be working now.
