Question about Samsung LN-T4061F 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Picture issues I just hooked up my Samsung LN-T4061F with the component cables that came with the HD cable box. The picture looks ok, but there are a few problems with the screen. I would like to view non-HD channels in wide screen format, but this stretches the screen vertically so much that I can't read tickers on the bottom of the screen and logo's get cut off etc. Is there any way to adjustin that? Second, in the Just Scan mode some of the non-HD channels display a white flickering line at the very top of the screen. Finally, is there any way to tell what resolution I am watching in? The tv is 1080p, but does not look that great to me, do I need HDMI hookup to get full HD?

Greetings caesar975,

Unfortunately if you chose to view the non HD channels in wide screen format, you are going to have the top and bottom of the screen cut off. Eventually this will not be a problem when everything goes to digital. However presently non HD channels are presented in 3:2 ratio where as HD is 16:9, So your choice really is to view them with the lines on either side for now.

I do not have an answer for the white flickering lines.

To get the BEST picture out of your 1080p unit I highly recommend using HDMI cables to hook it up.

I hope some of this helps.

Sincerely,

Dorothy

To view the captions, all you have to do is turn on the decoder by following these simple steps:
  1. Access your TV menu screen using your remote or by pressing a button on the face of the TV.
  2. Select the closed captions heading. Several different caption options may appear.
  3. Select the "CC1" option.
  4. Exit the menu.
Closed captions should appear within approximately one minute of adjusting this setting. If they do not, review this portion of your television's operating manual or contact the manufacturer of the television set.

Public Television stations do not transmit Closed captioning

Ghosting problems with a Samsung-LN32B360


I think your cable box is old version together with weak signal caused this problem. I guess you are using coaxial cable hooked up to the TV at TV cable input jack.
At the TV there are some better quality inputs which are real digital transmission (audio and video) HDMI and components (digital video and analog audio).
The most simple and best quality is HDMI provided the box has HDMI output.
Secondly is component inputs. There are 5 cable trends in which 3 of them (red, blue, green) for video and the rest 2 are for audio (red , white). The cable box should have same color accordingly as ouput. Please note that the color must be matched otherwise you will see the screen has one color only.
Playing a DVD player to see picture good or not. If picture is good, TV has no problem at all.

The set may not be at fault. If you are on cable some channels are still in anolog and some are digital. if you are on a nolog channel the picture will look preaty bad compared to the digital ones.

Not supported mode lcd tv samsung lnt4061f


with the PC input or analog SVGA the only 16:9 resolution it supports is 1920x1080, which can be difficult for some older systems to handle. However, on HDMI it should support all the standard HD resolutions.

Changing Screen Size on Samsung HP-R4272


you must not have the correct picture settings in the cable box, as although they are not HD they will still be widescreen, so check both tv and box for picture settings.
