Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

Samsung LCD LNT4042H

Today I received my new Samsung LCD TV. I completed the programing then started changing channels. I have found that some channels are fine for a couple of seconds then the sound goes off. If I change channels then go back to the previous channel the sound is back again for only a couple of seconds then nothing.Some of the channels don't seem to be affected but there are quite a few that are. I would appreciate it if you could tell me how to fix this problem that I am having. Thanking you in advance for any assistance that you can give me regarding this problem.

Sincerely,
Barb Pynn

    Unfortunately this solution is not going to help me. I do not use an antenna. My tv is hooked to cable. I have looked through the manual to see if I can find anything about it but can not. I have noticed that when I find a channel that does that it has a message when the channel first comes on. The message states the channel selected and that it is stereo +SAP. I thought that it might have something to do with the SAP but have noticed that other channels with SAP do not lose the sound. Still looking for a solution for this problem. Thanks for trying.

    My 18 month old samsung LCD TV just did the same thing, and it unfortunatly is on my two favorite channels. When I switch to either of these channels I have sound for aprox. 15 seconds and then it goes mute.

    I am connected to cable and have a second Samsung in the house that is fine. Is this problem unique to Samsung LCD's? Does anyone know where the problem lies?

Hi Barb,
Unfortunatly the problem you are asking about is a normal happening in our area with customers of mine that use rabbit ear or house mounted antennas ( Normally not cable or satellite dish). This problem sounds to me like a lack of signal strength on certain channels where your loosing your sound. Since your LCD TV is digital it requires a bit more signal strength to produce sound and picture. Maybe a better antenna, or redirection the antenna toward the station transmitter. Hope this helps.

    Sorry my suggestion didn't help. Since you are hooked to cable I assume the input signal in suffient. You may want to call your local cable company before you blame the TV and make sure all the channels are up to snuff when it comes to adquite signal. Good Luck'

Channel scan only finds 1 channel with basic cable setup on LG 42LD520


if you have a cable box just plug the cable box into a scart socket on the tv, switch the tv to the scart input and use the cable remote to change channel?Scanning for channels wont find anything because you are receiving the channels on a cable box. If you are refering to standard or digital tv signals and your not receiving any channels then either you are only scanning analogue tv and therefore wont pick up any digital tv channels, or your ariel is inadequate to receive an acceptable digital reception and will need to be upgraded. please state country you are in and what you are expecting to receive

In just bought new Toshiba regza 40" Lcd tv and auto tuned it, but the picture is terible , snowy and colours are not good, what to do...


Hello
First of all reset the TV. for that

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.

You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before

programming channels (-left-hand column).

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the

automatic channel programming process erases channels

that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the

automatic channel programming process adds newly found

channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and

does NOT erase channels that were previously

programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna

source channel from the memory, you must manually delete

it.

To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel

memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the

remote control.

Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is

configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when

the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;

however, once channel programming is finished, you should

not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

How do I program the tv to use without cable?


Hi,

1.Power on the television and press the "Menu" button on the Olevia TV's remote control.
2 Choose the "Programming" option to view all of the Olevia setup options.
3 Choose the "Channel Program" option, then select either "Antenna" or "Cable" (select "Cable" when using a satellite receiver).
4 Select "Start" and the Oleiva TV scans over all the stations it receives. Once complete, is stores the information into its memory bank, so when you attempt to change the television station you only see programs that come in clear onto the TV.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If your using the IR remote, the actual colors of the tv are what is causing your problem. What I have found to solve this is go to your local ATT corp. store and order the RF remote this will solve your problem. The techs don't carry these on their truck.

Sound but no picture


It is most likely the inverter, here is a trick to check it. Turn the tv on a channel where you have audio(sound)
Take a flashlight or a lamp with a bare buld and shine it on the screen. Look very closely at the screen, if you see a video image your inverter is bad.
Let me know and I can instruct you on replacement.
