Question about Samsung LA32B450 32 in. TV

2 Answers

My LA32B450C4D television which was working perfectly 24 hours ago is now is giving me a "weak or no signal" message in TV mode. It is hooked up to a Topfield TF 7100 HD PVR and in that mode it searches unsuccessfully for HD and then reprts "no signal" I went into system setings to try to resolve the problem and I can modify the settings, I can also playback recorded programs, but I can't exit that menu and it still remains on the screen after turning both the TV and the PVR off and turning them on again. I haven't actually turned the power of at the switch as I'm concerned that if I lose all my settings I won't be able to re-set them

    Thank you for your suggestions - I can't find Closed Captions on the menu might it be listed under a different name? I would like to try this as your other suggestions are too technical for me and I will have to ask my son for help in following them.

    Thanks for your suggestion - I'm a "senior" lady and am not confident about unplugging ans replugging anything so will wait for my son's next visit at the end of the week and pass the problem to him. I had hoped it might just be a matter of checking settings, but it seems to be more complicated than that.

    Thanks - we'll leave it there

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Two things may 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 it off 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 the issue will be resolved. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    OK, you can ask your son for help however, closed captioning might mean CC option on your remote.

That doesn't sound too good. DId you try connecting another input source such as a DVD player to the high definition input. If I am not wrong this tv has a feature - it will auto-detect it and choose the best resolution?

Weak or no signal


you would need to know if the tuner is picking up analog signals in the air well( stick a wire a little bit in the tuner connection to see if channels pick up good or use an antenna , if so there should not be a problem with the cable being hooked up to it , if there is a problem even with an antenna then the tuner is bad and will need to be replaced , and the cable could have caused it to go out , but make sure that the tuner is working or not first.

Weak or no signal message


  1. Since my problem (Samsung/Comcast) began with a channel selection button pushed on the TV remote when it should have been pushed on the cable remote, I figured the problem lay with the TV.  Although I was getting the "weak or no signal" msg., the actual signal strength bar graphic showed it to be strong. Disconnecting did no good. I surmised that the TV was simply not recognizing the box.
  2. I looked at the manual for my Samsung 750 model. 
  3. Page 20 discussed "Selecting the source". I accessed the TV menu and selected "Input", then chose the "HD..." item from the highlighted list. Voila! My tv works again.

"weak signal" on my RCA scenium


Hey! I have the same problem as you. But! this would happen only when I got a power outage. Unplug the TV for a couple of minutesand all was fine. For the last 5 day I have no TV. I have tried everything. All the out on the TV and I still get unusable signal. My rep told me to unplug for 24 Hours. Still didn't work. My menu option work as well and every time I put the TV on, off or if I change the input sound will come on for 2 seconde and stop. If I find the salution I will let you know. Gilles Ottawa
