On most occasions I've tried to carry a vcr that has HDMI output on calls with this symptom. In most cases it has been an error on the part of the cable equip. However, most manufacturers including samsung have firmware upgrades available which make product compatible with more types of equip. Call 1-800-samsung for customer service or try other unit with HDMI out. Hope this helps.

Just purchased an RCA 32" LED TV from K-Mart. Trying to set-up and in auto-scan it will not pick up any channels


It really depends on how your connecting signal. I am not sure about where you are but virtually all cable companies in Canada require the use of the cable box. Searching channels will only check either the analog cable input or rabbit ears. Typically you hook up the cable box via HDMI and set the televsion to that HDMI input and channels are changed on the cable box.

Why won't my TH-P42X20M pick up HDMI signals?


Are you certain the cable box is OK? could be the HDMI output from cable box. Try a known good source, such as a DVD player using the HDMI inputs, if that works the cable box is the problem. If still nothing at HDMI input on the TV, then the MAIN PCB is the problem.

When i try to play my x box on my sanyo tv no sound comes out of the tv


Try a different HDMI input and a different cable.

DVI is same as HDMI in regards to the picture signal, but lacks the audio.

Apparently for some reason the TV does not pick up audio and that could be because the HDMI port has a problem (say physical contact) or because the cable has a problem or (of course) because the XBOX does not output signal for some reason.

My first two picks would be the port and the cable.

hope this helps!

Hdmi input from does not receive signal. Have connected output from cable box directly to TV and signal is there. Unit does not pick up signal. HDMI output from component works fine, as I can play DVDs and...


I have the same issue. I've opened up several tickets with Samsung tech support. I'm concluding that it's the BluRay rcvr has bad hdmi input & output circuitry. I'm returning mine to Best Buy where I purchased it for a replacement. Before I leave the store, I'm going to make sure that the replacement unit's hdmi inputs & outputs work @ the store.

No signal


Try changing the order you turn on your TV and cable box, don't switch both together. The TV will likely skip the HDMI inputs if there is no signal there. Alternative you can change the TV's source after the cable box is on and that should allow it to not skip the HDMIs. You don't have HDMI to DVI adapter(s) in the line, do you? -Ken

HDMI->DVI cable won't work


Are you using a HDMI to DVI cable or are you using a HDMI to DVI adapter? Sometimes, though not on all products you have to go into the menu and select which out put your using for each source and whats going through it. You might need to go into your dvd player menu and tell it not to try to run audio through the cable. That way it's not trying to force a signal through the cable that cant be accepted by the TV. That might possible solve your problem for the DVD player. Let me know if it works
