New TV (6-4-08) Using with Direct TV with the above IR receiver. Power on the TV and the red light in the IR receiver comes on and stays on. Tried a second unit with the same results. Now both IR receiver's will not work with any TV. Why is this new TV giving off a IR siginal?
Are the IF units bad?

Just got a new Samsung Flat screen today and am new technology challenged. Cannot sleep because the red light is still on on the tv set, read the instructions, and would this red light mean that it is in standby mode? Do I unplug the tv from the wall? I am getting very sleepy.

We have a new Philips 32" LCD TV, 3500 series/32PFL3505D. We are having problems as we try to connect it to our existing Direct TV receiver. Do we need to call for Direct TV assistance, or can you...


Looks fairly straightforward.

Depending on the output of your DirectTV receiver, you are either going to use an HDMI cable.tomcattech17_0.jpg

A component cable: (Red\Green\Blue for video... White\Red for audio)

Or a composite cable: (Yellow for video.. White\Red for audio)

Hook one side of the cables to the Direct TV receiver and the other into the correct inputs on the back of the TV.

Samsung LN46A550 LCD power on/off problem again. Red light blinks 11 times, then clicks and then repeats the cycle. Only way to turn off is to unplud the set. Have checked capacitors and they are fine - no...


Apparently this is a known problem with flat panel TVs made a few years ago due to bad capacitors in the power supply. This same problem appeared in computer mother boards at about the same time so that the capacitors went open or shorted causing problems.There is videos on You Tube that addresses this problem see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZccykxrtX9g as a starting point and look around for other repairs

Samsung 5 series 40 remote not working


Testing remote control:
The remote control puts out IR (InfraRed) signal that human eyes cannot see, to find out if the remote is sending out the signal or not you just point the remote at the digital camera’s Lens (Digital Camera can detect IR), you should see flashing light on the camera’s screen when any one of the remote button is pushed. If you do see the flashing on the camera, then the problem is in the TV IR receiver or the main logic board; more troubleshooting with scope will be needed to look at the signals.

Need the remote code for Samsung 55" led tv 8000 series


You will not have any luck, The Screen only uses RF for control. As far as I know there is no IR receiver on the unit or any RS232!! A nightmare for integrating this product into universal control systems.

SAMSUNG LNS3251DC - RED POWER LIGHT IS ON BUT TV NOT POWERING UP. WHEN I PRESS THE POWER BUTTON NOTHING HAPPENS. TV HAS A DARK GLOW COMING THOUGH


Multiple causes here. The Main bd controls the Power supply. The Main bd receives the "Power on " signal from the IR sensor and the Power Button the tv. Seems that the Main bd is not sending the Power on signal to the Power supply. So the first place to start is with the Main bd. Second being the Power supply. have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.
