Programming of cable tv channels on SAMSUNG LCD TV

I have tried many times programming the cable tv channels for my Samsung LCD tv. I followed closely all the instructions from the manual but the reception and sound is hazy. I used the same antenna for my old TV and I'm sure its working well because I tested the antenna on another
TV and it gives clear signals. Why can't the new Samsung LCD get the signals well? Something wrong with the TV? HELP! I can't even get a clear reception from our local TV channels!

SOURCE: programming channels

Hey abshee,

In order to program the channels for this TV, you'll want to press the "Menu" button on the TV itself. Once in the main menu, scroll down until you see an option called "Setup." From here, press the right arrow key to enter the submenu. Before going any further, you'll want to make sure that the tuning band is correctly set to "Air" or "Cable," which will depend on how you have your TV connected.

Once the proper input has been selected, you can then scroll down to "Auto Ch Search." If you press the right arrow key on this option, your TV will automatically search for all available channels.

If you'd like step-by-step instructions (with pictures of what you should see at any given step), I'd suggest checking out the link I've provided below to Insignia's online owner’s manual for this model:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: can't get all digital channels

There are several possibilities assuming you have an outdoor antenna with the amplification. You are too far from the transmitter or the station is still on a low power digital transmitter until the analog broadcasts end. Additionally, there may be buildings, hills or trees in the way. The first one is called the digital cliff - you either have enough signal for your tuner or you don't. Some stations may need to add transmitters to cover the secondary areas that could still receive the analog signal. The second possibility will either resolve on Feb 18 or June 12 or anywhere in between. (It will depend on your station and the Digital TV transistion delay bill. Some stations are changing frequencies with the transistion and can't go to full power until another analog station moves its frequency.) The last one can't be resolved.
If you have an indoor antenna, you can try moving it around to get better results. My household has an amplified outdoor antenna with a rotator to get the antenna to line up with the signal. We have two analog stations that give problems when we look for their digital signals. We hope the issue will resolve with the changeover since we have seen the signals on both stations improve when they wanted to broadcast football games.

I have a Samsung hdtv but its not playing in hd.I have it hooked up to cable straight from the wall bypassing the cablebox.Is it the tv or cable?


You do not indicate if you have auto programmed the television to get digital channels, If you are selecting a channel without a decimal point, for instance 82.3 is NBC hd in my cable system. If your cable provider does not produce these on direct cable then you can not get HD without a box.
Try to Auto Program your tv in the cable mode STD format, this can take up to 20 minutes to complete scan including deleting scrambled channels. After programming try the lowest or highest analog channel like 2 or 70, channel down or up from there to see if any digital channels appear.

In just bought new Toshiba regza 40" Lcd tv and auto tuned it, but the picture is terible , snowy and colours are not good, what to do...


Hello
First of all reset the TV. for that

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.

You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before

programming channels (-left-hand column).

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the

automatic channel programming process erases channels

that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the

automatic channel programming process adds newly found

channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and

does NOT erase channels that were previously

programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna

source channel from the memory, you must manually delete

it.

To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel

memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the

remote control.

Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is

configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when

the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;

however, once channel programming is finished, you should

not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

5. Press "left arrow" or "right arrow" button to start channel programming. The TV will automatically

cycle through all the TV or Cable channels (depending on which you

"PROGRAMMING NOW-PLEASE WAIT" appears.

6. When channel programming is complete, the message "COMPLETED"

Programming RCA converter box remote control with Phil/Mag TV---


Good day,
You should have the instruction guide. If not look below. It's there but look closely for the guide itself and how to increase it's size to readable.

Check on the back of the TV to see if there is a 3 and 4 setting, If so, set to 3.
With nothing connected to the tv, and using the tv's remote, scan for channels. It should come up with only channel 3.
Then using the remote with advanced options, set the the input to either antenna or auto.

Connect the antenna cable to input on the converter box. Using the supplied cable connect the output from the converter box to
the TV. Turn the TV on first, followed by the converter box.
Then follow the instructions.

Not really easy so you'll have to fight your way thru it.
Finding the right setting for the antenna will probably take the most time, requiring a station scan after each adjustment.

The HD channels disappeared from list. Not cable problem. Have phoned samsung techs too many times with no results. Tried all troubleshooting, etc. Any ideas?


If all the other digital channels work ok then it would be the cable at fault. There is a firmware upgrade for the LN32A330 model TV on the samsung website. Its possible that might fix the issue. I am including the link for the page with the download and it also has the instructions on how to update the TV. Please read and follow the update instructions carefully. Take a moment to rate my answer. Thank you.

Samsung LCD tv no sound from one channel only, no cable box, direct connection to cable, worked ok and then somebody may have fooled around with closed captioning...no closed captioning on now, but no...


First try viewing regular programming and see if you have audio on both channels. If you do not then go to the user menu and make sure that the chim function is turned "on". Then turn off the tv and listen for the down chime coming from both speakers. If you only hear the chime from one speaker then the Aidio circuits are bad on the Main bd and needs to be replaced.
