The SSB may need to be replaced.
This may be the cause of the tv shutting off and may be a factory defect.

The flashing light should be a repeating count. Please post that count. Also, are the DVD and TV plugged into the same outlet or circuit? What you are seeing is a grounding problem. At this point it is unclear whether the problem is with the DVD or the TV. If you have a voltmeter, set it to AC and check for any voltage on the video cable from the DVD player. Check also for DC voltage. Measure between the center RCA pin and the outside shield. This should be 0 or DC and will vary slightly from 0 depending upon what is playing on the DVD and how quick your AC meter is in reading the voltages.
Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Unplug the power cord, but leave it unplugged for 4 hours. This is called a hard reset.

If the hard reset does not alleviate the problem then the protection circuit has been activated. This is caused when one of the many sections of the tv develops a short circuit and is detected by the protection circuit which in turn shuts the set off to avoid further damage to the set which in your case is from the Dvd connection.

You will need to call in a service tech or test the various sections and find the actual shorted circuit.

The cause can be any of many possibilities. But it is almost always over $200 to get it repaired.

Since it is a nice set, you should definitely invest in fixing it whether you do it yourself or not depends on your expertise with tvs. If you still have the extended warranty it should be covered free of charge.

Let me know if you have further questions and I would be glad to help you.

Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck on fixing this.

    yes, so something is most likely shorting out between the DVD player and the the tv board

When the cable company offers you digital cable, you typically need a cable box to unscramble the digital channels. Therefore you need to connect either a coaxial cable from the cable box's RF output, if it has one, or connect 3 RCA cables from the yellow, white and red jacks on the rear panel of the cable box to the TV. Analog channels only (if available) will go straight thru over the coaxial RF hookup. They are not scrambled. Select the proper input source on the TV for the cable box.

You need a professional.
Stop using the TV until it is repaired.
Continue to use it and your problems will multiply and grow more expensive.
Call the manufacturer to find you nearest authorized service center.

Please clarify how you have the dvd connected right now. You should use the video output out of dvd and into the t.v. That dvd don't have rf out. You have to match component or s-video or composite with what your tv has. We can't help because I don't know what inputs your T.V. has. You may have to come out of the cable box with video-outs/audio then into the dvd and then out to the t.v.. Remember, you MUST come OUT with the box and IN to the dvd, then OUT of dvd and IN to the t.v. Always out/in/out/in. You have 3 different formats. Depending on what the t.v. has is the one you will use. Composite is yellow cable...good then s-video used black cable with pins inside....better and Component uses 3 cables red/green/blue....best. Don't forget to also hook-up your audio signal too. This should be enough info for you to get it going. Remember too that you will need to set the dvd on your input the cablebox is on to feed the signal through. You can only record what the cable box is tuned to. That should do it. Good-luck.

Cannot connect vcr to Lc-32AF3X aquos tv


Hi,

To my knowledge, most VCR units would have a yellow, red and white connectors commonly called RCA. What is required then is a triple RCA to RCA connector as shown below. The yellow is normally connected to the video, while the red & white are for the R & L of the audio. An identical set would be on the rear of the TV unit henceforth the connection would be OUT from the VCR to the IN of the LC-32AF3X. Thereafter, the TV must be set to A/V, V1, Video or Aux.

In some instances, a single cable is used to connect some models to the TV. This is called an RF patch cord and would look something like below. This would come form the RF OUT of the VCR to the RF/CABLE/ANT IN of the TV. Pls make sure that the style/form fits your units. Additionally, the TV must be set to either Ch 3 or 4 or whatever the VCR is using as its RF output channel.

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.

Try changing channels down lower than ch.2 and it should go to a Video channel, or Video1 or Video2, etc. One of those will be for the input where you plugged in the Red/White/Yellow cable.
Or there could just be a TV/Video button on the front of the set.

I have just purchased a lcd hd tv but when i when i try to play my old videos thru it it only plays in black and white


Using the rf could cause that to go to black and white if there is interference on you don't have it turned to the correct channel. Your rf should be set for 2, 3, or 4 depending on what the choices are on the rf box. Can you plug the yellow, white, and red cables directly into the tv and use a video input on the tv to see it?

How can i get the best picture out of my samsung while im playing a game


Good Day;
The best picture you can get ryanvo2 depends on the use of the TV's input capabilities. It also depends on the games outputs.
In today's world of electronics there are more options than in the past, so it depends on the age of your equipment.
So, let's look at the most five (5) options available; number (1)one being the worst and (5) five being the best:
1.) RF, radio frequency, direct cable or antenna input.
2.) Video input; yellow, red and white cables.
3.) S-Video input, some units may require additional audio cables.
4.) Composite Video, red, green & blue cables.
5.) THE BEST 'HDMI' cable, computer type.
ryanvo2 I hope this was helpful. I hope you have years of game playing enjoyment in front of you.
Good Luck, Big Irish

Picture is of poor quality (wavy)


This may indicate a problem with the RF tuner. When you are using the DVD player is the output of the DVD using the F (RF Coax) Conncetor or is the DVD connect to the TV using the Video/Audio cables (either Composite (Red, White, Yellow) or Component (Red, Green, Blue)). I am do however believe this to be a RF tuner problem. Make sure that the TV is set to channel 3 and the cable box is connected to the TV (set to channel 3). What you could also do is get digital cable and use the video output jack as the input to the TV on one of your aux positions.

I would first make sure the tunner is on channel 3 when using the regular cable box, or if you are using the TV's cable ready features make sure the tunner is working correctly, this might have to be done by a qualifide TV repair person.

I hope this helps
Thank you,

Snowy picture


Hi,

A snowy video indicates that your input signal is relatively weak. On the other hand, a noisy picture is when there are too much interference is super imposing on the video.

Snowy picture comes about when the signal coming in the RF INput (Ant/Cable) at the back of the unit is below a certain level. If this is the case, then it is not a problem with your TV but rather your aerial (antenna) or the cable from your provider. A way to verify that it is the ant/cable that is the cause and not a defective TV/tuner is to hook up an old VCR set to Ch. 3 or 4 to the RF IN of your TV using a short 75 ohms coaxial cable terminated at both ends with FP-5 connector. Play a known clear good tape and set your TV to Ch. 3 or 4 as the case maybe. If the picture is relatively clearer, better, then you have just confirmed that it is indeed your aerial or your cable (provider) that needs looking into. If on the other hand, the VCR signal is also snowy then chances are that you have a problem with the input stage of your TV including possibly your tuner.

For your aerial problem, antenna orientation or replacing with a higher gain antenna might help solve the snowy signal. For your cable problem, you have to call-in for service from your cable provider. If it is a TV problem, your best course would be to seek the services of a qualified TV technician since this involve electronic circuitry analysis, diagnosis and possible component replacements.

Additionally, you may try looking for any loose connection, loose grounding, broken wire or anything out of the ordinary in your connections.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
