Question about Samsung HP-T4254 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

I am having trouble with input connectivity such that the tv receives weak or no signal. I do not believe that there is a problem with the input wiring, nor is it a problem referencing sources. What can I do? What is the likely cause of this malfunction?

    No. I'm having problem with three different inputs--PC, HDMI, and Component 1 and 2. The coaxial cable antenna input works fine.

    Is this when you are trying to use the cable TV input?

There is a firmware update for this TV on the Samsung website. The link will bring you to the update page. You can try the update, but make sure you follow the directions according to their instructions.. Good Luck : )

When i mak the automatical programin for my tv (toshiba model no. CN27H95) it find nothing!!!! so there are others ways to mak manual programing to find chanels?


This feature is pretty reliable and the lack of channels may be due to the lack of signal to the set.

You must have either an antenna, a cable from a cable service or a satellite receiver connected for the set to find any channels.

Turntable hookup to AUX or CD (no Phono input) only producing very weak sound, even at full volume


You are doing nothing wrong at all. It's just that as you say it has no phono input. Which means the sockets you have will NOT amplify the signal. So you need to buy a magnetic cartridge pre-amp and once connected to the aux the weak signal will be at the normal level.

Im trying to connect my unit to my tv to record shows and i having trouble doing so please help i am hooking it up wrong


For OTA or CATV signals, you need to daisy chain the coax from the source (antenna for OTA) to the coax input on DVD recorder and then the coax out to the coax input of the TV. If you have a set-top cable box with an incoming CATV signal, it should be connected between the DVD recorder and the TV.

The unit can tune in and record 480i (SD) ATSC (OTA digital), NTSC (OTA analog), analog CATV and digital CATV channels.

A satellite receiver or a non-CATV cable box should get the incoming signal first and then have their composite video output (A/V) connected to the DVD recorder composite video input and then their coax (RF) output (if present) gets connected to the TV. For these, you would record from the IN1 or IN2 (press Select Input) instead of selecting a channel. Then connect the composite video out on the recorder to the TV's composite video in.

Digital signals are either enough to tune in or give no signal. So check that your antenna is correctly oriented for OTA.

Separately, you can connect the video signal when playing DVDs via composite (good signal) out and component out (better signal) out to the TV's matching input. For the component video, the sound is carried on a separate cable. Then set the TV to the input source.

In the case of wanting to watch a VHS tape while taping to a DVD, do not use the Component video source, set the TV to Input 1 (composite).

I hope this helps.

I have a 42inch lcd polariod tv and the screen comes up blue no picture or sound


It could be the blanking circuit displaying a blue screen if no or a weak signal is connected to the TV. If you have a DVD or VCR try to see if you get picture and sound when ether of those devices are connected to the auxiliary input. If yes your signal input is weak, or you are getting no signal at all. If you go into the TV do you see text? If yes make sure you’re on the correct auxiliary input. If no text is visible the problem is internal and the LCD driver circuit needs to be repaired. If you see text and you are on the correct auxiliary input, but you get no picture and sound then the problem is internal and the front end tuner needs to be repaired. If you see video and hear the sound make sure your channel is correctly selected and set to a working channel. If you have a cable box remove the input to the box and connect it into the coaxial input on the TV and see if you have a picture and sound. If you do the cable box is defective. If you do not see any channels the cable may have lost its signal, and you should connect the cable to another device to check the signal quality. If you have a satellite service provider, and you use a known working device to check the signal and the device works then the TV needs to be serviced.

Connecting dvd player


You need to use a receiver and connect the units to the receiver input, Then connect the receiver output to your television's input circuit. This should allow to switch inputs to the television. This can also be done with a switching box that allows several input and output. This unit should be hooked up in the same manner with the outputs to the switch box inputs and the switch box out to the television's input circuit. the difference between the two methods is the receiver has a preamplifier that will increase weak signal levels. The switch box is a passive device and usually will not amplified the signal to the input device. You can buy amplified switch boxes if you need them. Hope this helps you with your problem.

Can't get the channels to enter into the channel list


A lot of the " auto channel scan " etc. need a certain signal strength. you could have too meny tvs,equipment or anything connected to the "signal giver" that is sucking the signal strength.Not just turn off ALL connections to signal but disconnect the antenna 'input' to any equipment (sometimes people connect cable wires to radio receivers for stronger & better signals.)
You could have a open circuit to the input of the equipment in trouble.If you know how to get inside (with out killing yourself) connect an antenna directly to the end of the line of the intanna input INSIDE of the TV. if the signal comes in and the tv 'autoscans' and locks channels, then you have a open wire leading into the circuit.
p.s. BE CAREFUL!!, IF YOU don't know how or what you are doing.........DON'T DO DAT !! [that]

You have probably done this, but have you changed the video settings in the setup menu to have the tv using HDMI out? I believe it is under the first option when the menu comes up.
