Question about Samsung HLP6163W 61" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I have a Samsung DLP TV, the picture goes blank for about 5-10 seconds and then comes back on, this happens every 10 minutes or so. Sometimes the screen will say ''No Signal''. I usually watch pre-recorded shows from my cable box. If I go back in the reording to where the picture went blank, the recording is ok, so it appears to be the TV. I thought it might be the lamp, but my picture quality is fine.
Thanks for using FixYa. Two things that will cause the NO SIGNAL message to come up are, No data available for closed captioning and a weak signal input. Your TV is in the Closed Captioning Mode. To turn of simply bring up the on screen menu and scroll down to the part that says closed captioning and turn this function off! With the closed captioning block displayed and the program being viewed is not sending out closed captioning signals the TV will display, No signal!
If this doesn’t resolve your issue then the problem may be with the processor failing and it is causing a random read of the EPROM to display the not available message. I’ll suggest you to run the HDMI from the PVR (personal video recorder) directly to the TV (mute the TV), and then run the optical audio from the PVR directly into the receiver's optical in. The closed captioning is something that is addressed in analog broadcasts, but not necessarily digital broadcasts
Try using Component cables if this doesn’t make a difference. After using components cables your issue will be resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
