Question about Televison & Video
I just got the same exact one, when it searches automatically the first time it doesn't look for digital channels. go to Menu>manual channel search>cable. it will look for all possible signals and will take forever probably. the free digital channels will take several seconds to switch channel to channel, but they're there! They will show up on your screen as "DC 91-2" or similar. you can switch back to regular cable channels with the input button, you just cycle through all the inputs. hope that helps.

SOURCE: HDMI connectivity
I have the SA8300HDC STB from Time Warner. I get this error from my DVD recorder, not from my HDMI connection. I've read that the error is due to copy protection. The only solution I've read about has to do with a new Samsung Set-top box from TWC. Funny this copy protection error didn't ever come up with my old VCR connection to the HDTV. TWC apparently told a lot of people that the problem would be solved by a software update from TWC in October 2007 & then in December 2007. Guess TWC isn't sure what the problem is but everyone who has mentioned this Samsung cable box has reported success with their HDMI connection.

Yes the problem is in the tv. If you have no onscreen display and good sound it is highly likely that there is no high voltage. If there is no high voltage the unit can either be in shut down mode or it could be shorted out in one of the power supplies. A test can be performed to determine if there is high voltage or not which will tell you which circuits to trouble shoot if you want to try repairing it yourself.
The quick test to determine if there is high voltage is simple. If you want to know how let me know and I can help. But in any case if there is no onscreen display and there is good sound, it is highly unlikely there are any quick fix options, as the problems are usually in the power supply, high voltage, convergence, or possibly even the light tubes. It would require an experienced technician to narrow it down and repair the problem.
