I just set it up (it is used) and I can't get to the "Channel Manager" in the setup menu, as it is grayed out. I can't auto program because of my inability to access this menu function.


Hi,
Channel menu will be grayed out if tv is set on AV Input, select TV source by remote or press any channel number to set tv on tv source, this will enable channel manager/ menu to tune channels in tv.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks

I have a cable box connectin and cannot choose HDMI as a source. I had HDMI as the source for about two years and then something must have changed. I have verified the HDMI cable is not the problem. Page...


The manual is telling you that your "source", whatever you are connecting to a particular HDMI port, needs to be turned-on in order for the TV to detect it. Make sure that the HDMI cable plugged into the correct HDMI port for each device (TV & cable box) and that the cable box is on. Does the cable box HDMI port need to be selected in order for it to be functional or is it on all of the time? Check your cable box instruction manual for details on the proper way to enable (turn-on) or disable the various outputs if needed.

Let me know if you need additional info.

First part- the "Line-In" Video Source thing many people are having fun with. Try these options from the Samsung FAQs website.:

We have an LCD samsung Tv and a samsung dvd player with hard drive. We are unable to now go thru the source list and find HDM1 which was our dvd channel and get the dvd player to work, When you go on...


Samsung inputs are auto-detecting, meaning if nothing is plugged in you cannot get to that input. Double check you HDMI cable on both ends to make sure its plugged in. HDMI jacks are very weak and connections break very easily, don't wiggle excessively. I recommend using component video instead for a more reliable connection.

I HAVE JUST BOUGHT A SAMSUNG 40" LCD TV - LE40A456C - WHEN VIEWING EXT1 SOURCE FOR DVD'S THERE IS A FAINT SHADOW MOVING CONSTANTLY FROM LEFT TO RIGHT ON SCREEN WHICH APPEARS TO BE THE SATELLITE...


Hi,

This is an internal weakness of the video source selection circuitry and perhaps your best bet would be to seek service/replacement from the point of purchase/dealer. Technically, it is "signal bleedover" or "video splatter" and has to do with shielding/grounding but again internally. Best temporary fix is to power off the video source plugged into EXT2. Alternately, you can try switching them around, make the DVD EXT2 and the Satellite EXT1.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello

by befault your dvd recorder is transmiting signals via component video, so what you need to do is this connect both cable HDMI and Component or just a video cable then go into setup and then select video out via HDMI your video will go off on the screen and then with TV remote slect input source HDMI on TV and it should work fine.

Thankyou
