Question about Samsung LNT3242H Television

1 Answer

Channel scanning My tv appears to be possessed! It is scanning channels like its doing some sort of auto programming, only I didn't push anything! I can be sitting there watching tv and then suddenly it starts scanning through channels. I am unable to push any menus, I can't do anything to stop it regardless of what I push. I can't even shut it off when it does this unless I unplug it because even the power button doesn't work. I left it off overnight and it appeared normal today after work, then suddenly it started all over again? Should I take it back where I got it from? It's been 6 weeks since I bought it. Tanya

Yes file for repair as everything you would have to do to fix this means opening it. and likely voiding the warranty.

If there is no channels after scanning is it the outside antenna?


Do you see any channels [as a glimpse], during auto-tune. If you see them for a moment during channel auto scan, and do not store them in the TV memory, after the channel scan has been finished; the fault is with the TV itself. If you do not see that glimpse of programs during channel auto scan, there are two possibilities.
1. The tuner of the set is faulty.
2. The set do not get any signal to process [might be antenna].

I have a Samsung hdtv but its not playing in hd.I have it hooked up to cable straight from the wall bypassing the cablebox.Is it the tv or cable?


You do not indicate if you have auto programmed the television to get digital channels, If you are selecting a channel without a decimal point, for instance 82.3 is NBC hd in my cable system. If your cable provider does not produce these on direct cable then you can not get HD without a box.
Try to Auto Program your tv in the cable mode STD format, this can take up to 20 minutes to complete scan including deleting scrambled channels. After programming try the lowest or highest analog channel like 2 or 70, channel down or up from there to see if any digital channels appear.
