When changing channels, or at advert breaks the tv flashes the picture on and off. it does this sometimes at scene changes in a program as well. it falshes maybe four times when changing channel and then settles down and is fine, however, during some advert breaks, it will flash all the way through it. the tv is only a year old, and has had no other problems. it worked fine on free view, cable, pc and games consoles. just blooming sky

Re: sky not working properly on my samsung lcd tv
This is likely to be caused by the changing of the screen mode between ads and or programs, by your TV.
If so, changing the Sky output to 16:9 will fix it.
Select option 4 - System Setup
Select option 1 - Picture Settings
Change "Location 1" TV setting to 16:9 (This will make the Sky box handle any changes and give you a permanent widescreen output to your TV. This is the recommended setting for widescreen TVs, but sadly, few Sky installers bother to do it.
You can also change "Location 2" if you have a second widescreen TV connected in another room.
Whilst in this menu change the Video Output to RGB from PAL (If not set already) RGB gives a much more stable picture (particularly on the menu system)
Go to Save new settings and press [Select]
Exit the menu system, and you problem should be solved.

Hi I have the same problem I got my TV replaced just today got brand new even better model. and guess the problem is still there.it's not individual,it must be in the whole series. if you have a solution mail at email@example.com
You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.
the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.
Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.
If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.
I have a similar problem but my picture flashes black and white and the sound goes at the same. Also sometimes it will flash pink and blue. I've read elsewhere that the issue is a known problem with compatability between Samsung tv's and sky boxes. Apparently the box needs to be replaced but I'm unsure what type of box. I've read perhaps a PACE sky box could fix the problem. I think the best option would be to contact Samsung - that's what I'm going to do.
