Question about Televison & Video

4 Answers

My Samsung LN40A530 only produces a blank blue screen whenever I try to use an HDMI input source. Audio seem to come through fine but not the video. Other, non-HDMI video inputs work fine. I've tried changing HDMI cables and tried using HDMI output from both my Verizon FIOS STB and my Philips DVD player (which upconverts to HDMI output.) Both the STB and the DVD player work fine on the smaller, cheaper Vizio HDTV.

    My Samsung LN40A530 problem is similar. I get an intermittent "Searching for Signal" message when viewing a DVD via anyone one of three HDMI ports. I'm one my second LCD, Samsung is sending a service technician to replace the motherboard and power supply. Hopefully, this will be the solution.

No solution but have the same tv. Same day I bought it after a few hrs tv froze up.Nothing worked on remote. Tv just kept beeping. Unplugged it for a bit then tried again. All it does now is after a few minutes the volume icon comes up and goes all the way down to zero and can`t get it to go back up. Tired of unplugging every few mins. Called samsung and they told me to take it back. They were no help at all.

Similar problem here, except, the HDMI works at first, but the next day when turning the tv on the HDMI signal is lost, then I have to reboot my HDMI devices to get it back.

We are having the same problem. We have 2 DVD players with up-converter to 1080i and 1080p. Both DVD work fine (one Sony and one Samsung) with our Samsung LN-T4053H upstairs, never intermittent.

LN40A530 downstairs is having "Searching for Signal" problem. Took it back to Sears got a new one, problem followed. Something is wrong with this LN40A530. Perhaps firmware update is needed.

How do I get rid of a no signal sign on my tv


You may have the wrong input source selected. There are a number of different source connections on the back of today's TV sets. Using the remote's SOURCE button, cycle through the different inputs until you find the one that your input device is attached to. It is common for users to inadvertently cycle off the correct input when pushing remote buttons.

try to reset the tv throught the menu options, if that fails then the video inputs or video components in the tv needs repaired, if you have a "S Video" input you could use that or have the TV repaired.

I lost picture and Audio,I just replaced the Y sustain board and still doesn't work, what else should I do?


If you get a blue screen when it's on, try feeding in an external audio and video source, like a camcorder or VCR, and see if it displays. Check setup or input selection. If it's set to video or HDMI source and nothing is plugged in, you'd get a blue screen.

I have an LG TV with an LG HOME CINEMA SYSTEM problem is: watch dvd/blue ray - video fine sound fine (through speakers) watch tv / sky -- video fine sound None throughspeakers on...


Hello,
There are two things that I can suggest.
1-Test your optical cables to make sure they a good on a known working source because they are very fragile and break very easily.
2-Try to eliminate the use of optical output from tv to receiver. There may be a problem from the HDMI to optical conversion at the tv. Instead, try running the audio directly from the source to the receiver, and let the tv deal with video input only.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck.

From the manual of your Denon page 41:

"Video Select -It is not possible to select HDMI input signals. • When playing HDMI video input signals, the analog video signal of another input source cannot be selected for the HDMI video output."
