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].

HOW DO YOU GET CHANNELS REPROGRAMED INTO THE TV?


Hello

Auto presetting channels you wish to know I thinks, if so do the following.

To preset a channel or to change a preset channel, follow the procedure below.

1) Press the POWER button to turn on the TV.

2) Press the MENU button so that the menu display appears

on the TV screen.

3) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "CHANNEL SET".

Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.

4) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "AUTO PRESET CH".

Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.

The tuner scans and memorizes all active channels in your area.

? The TV distinguishes between standard TV channels and cable (CATV)

channels.

? When AUTO PRESET CH action is completed, the lowest memorized

channel reappears on the screen.

? When you press the CH(annel) ? or ? button after selecting "AUTO PRESET CH",

the tuner will stop at the memorized channels only.

? The TV may recognize TV channels to be CATV channels by receiving conditions. In this case,

try AUTO PRESET CH action again in the fine receiving conditions.

? When AUTO PRESET CH is activated where there is no TV signal input, "NO TV SIGNALS"
will appear on the display after the completion of channel scanning.
OK.

Programming channels


The only thing I see in the Manual is to do an auto search which will scan all available channels and saves them to memory. the faxtory setting is auto search. the search allows you to manually search for available channels. in this mode, available channel must be stored individually. the program sets your favorite channel to appear when the tv is turned on. the range is from channel 0 - 255. i hope this helps.
