I just bought this TV last week. Now I am getting the above error message. I called Samsung and of couse, they were as helpful as a bottle of laxatives would be in remedying diarreah. I have purchased 2 seperate HDMI cords and have tested my cable on a regular TV. Any advice?
If you are using hdmi out from your cable box It must be turned on in the system menu. The cable box can work on a regular tv, eg. component, cable, or composite video but still not send a signal out to HDMI unless switched on in the box's menu. I see this quite often and also in some cases you have to switch the box to send digital audio out through the HDMI cable. Hope this helps.

Depending on your Satellite receiver's output type (i.e. HDMI or Component - Red, Green, Blue) you should connect to your tv's appropriate external inputs. Example: if you choose to connect the receiver via HDMI, then you use the SOURCE button on your tv and select the correct HDMI input you have connected your device to. If connected by Component (Red, Green, Blue) then use the SOURCE button to select the correct Component input, and so on.
Note: HDMI is the best connection type - you won't be able to access your receiver from the tv's built in tuner.
As above explanation, your VCR and DVD devices should be connected to your tv in the same manner - unless it is a combo unit (VCR & DVD in one), in which case this device can be tuned into your chosen tv channel (via the tv's tuner).
Note: if you have one of the latest SMART tv's, it should already have a built-in "Hi Definition" tuner which will allow you to watch free digital tv broadcast (DVB).
This tv have problems with it tv Tuner signal board.That the board,where it take the incomming broadcasting signal cable and external devices inputs into it.Tv is still less than a year old,call for Samsung for a warrenty repair.Out of warrenty,tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbuish tv Tuner signal board for the replacement.
Is this a new TV? If so, remember that it has a break-in period of about 100 hours or so. Not everyone believes in this, but in my experience it does have an effect.
Try reducing your contrast ratio to 35 (default is 50). You shouldn't see too much of a difference and it may solve your problem. And if it's a new TV, you could try setting it back to 50 again after the so-called 'break-in period'. Hope this helps.
Hi I deal with Samsung everyday. Can you not go back to the store where you bought it. their customer service team should be able to push a bit more clarification from Samsung. Also a lot of stores will have a policy where if the unit is away for repair for more than x amount of days/weeks the customer is entitled to a new prduct. Worth a shot!
Sounds like main board failure and or power board failure. You need to contact manufacturer and describe problem for tech support. Some of the parts in Samsung TVs have lifetime warranties. Change out of two board is about an hour job and service call is usually comped. Hope this helps. J
