Question about Samsung 46 in. Flat-Panel LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Hi. I don't have a specific problem. I have cable TV with HD channels and regular channels. I hardly watch the HD channels but have to pay extra for them. I am wondering that if I cancel the HD part of the cable will I still get the great picture I get now on the regular channels. In order to change, I will have to change the cable boxes back to what I had before. Thank you for your time.

Tv screen goes black after 15-20 seconds


It's not the TV from what I can tell. I would start complaining about it and say you want a brand new box. Not used. They tend to give out boxes from people who previously had them and either didn't pay their bill or moved and clean them up.

Hi, I can't say I've ever seen that happen with that TV before so I'd say it definitely isn't common. I'm pretty sure it's the signal from the HD channels, I'd suggest talking to your cable service provider.

I HAVE A SUMSUNG THAT IS HD, BUT IT'S NOT HDMI,i GET REGULAR CHANNELS, BUT WHEN I SWITH TO A HD CHANNEL, IT IS ALL SCRAMBLED? WHY?


I assume you have cable. The cable HD and digital channels are usually sent in Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM). The cable companies are required to send local channels in the clear but not so for any others. Regular (basic) channels may be clear or scrambled. USA many not be but HBO will be.
So you have 1 of 2 problems: (1) your TV does not do QAM or (2) they have scrambled the channels you want to see. Questions: (1) Have tried direct Over-the-Air (OTA, ATSC) reception for your locals? (2) Can you see the HD local channels on cable? (3) Are you paying for an HD box from the cable company to have the channels decoded? If in doubt contact the cable company.
Current Samsung TVs do do QAM and OTA HD. Alternatives are Dish or Direct to get satellite with an HD receiver using HDMI or 5-cable RCA. Costs are comparable but OTA wins, hands down. -Ken

Colours turns blue and green from HD channels


The most likely cause of your problem is the cable box HDMI output. If you have some extra cables, try connecting the TV to the cable box using the component connections. I'll bet your problem will go away. Don't let the cable company lie to you; I work on Sony TV's everyday and see plenty of cable box HDMI issues. Some of my customers have exchanged their boxes 4 or 5 times and still have HDMI issues. Your best bet is to use the component outputs or switch to Dish or Direct TV, as they DON"T have HDMI problems. If this solution works, be sure to rate it. Thanks!

Do we have to manually set the pix set key for every station/show we watch? We loose scrolling writing at the top and bottom of the screen on my dad's new 32" lcd tv bought at Wal-mart. When we set...


Thanks for the offer but we cannot afford to pay additional money for something the Factory support service Should provide.

From what we have heard through the Verizon installer, our SANYO LCD TV probably does NOT have a Automatic picture adjust system. That would most likely be the reason for the maunual button on the remote control. The troublle is that with the FIOS service, you do NOT use the TV's remote control. That leaves to switching back and forth between two different remotes wiich can be vary confusing for someone that is not 88 years old.

It is bad enough that you have to remember which channels you have to go to to receive HD programming signals. If I were making a TV set, and or running a TV network/ cable service, I would transmit both HD and regular signals on the same channel number and let the TV and or the decoder box figure out if my set could display High Definition. Isn't that what we spend lots of money buying equipment and paying each month for service?

If anyone out there knows if the SANYO 32 inch LCD TV sold at Wal-Mart automatically adjust to the picute format, (PIX 1-4) we sure ould like to hear from you.

Hi,
right hdtv stands for high definitian tv witch basically means if you buy a hd dvd player or blueray then you can watch the films in really high quality alot better than normal dvd. The same if you had cable tv or sky you pay a fee for an hd converter then this lets you watch certain channels in high def. So it basically means that your telly is capable of using all the new hd equipment thats coming out like the playstation 3 can play high def dvd's as long as you buy the hd lead as you need this due to the fact that it sends more data to the telly their for giving alot better sound quality and alot better piture quality when watching hd dvd's.
At the moment their are only a few tv channels that are using hd at the moment but this will soon change.
So to watch hd dvd youll need an hd dvd player and to watch hd tv you need to contact your cable or sky people and ask them what you need to do to watch hd programmes. they will then upgrade your box and should send you an hd lead to plug into your telly from the sky or cable box.
Hope this is helpfull and easy to understand.

Hd is well worth having as the quality is amazing you wont believe it till you try it i was shocked as the detail and quality is mind blowing its like watching real life, it really is that good.

Let me know if you need further assistance ok
