Question about Samsung HP-T4254 42 in. Plasma Television
I'm having the strangest problem. My Samsung HP-T4254 won't display certain cable television shows. For instance, I could be watching MSNBC just fine then a particular show will end and another will start and the television screen will go black and there'll be no sound. When that show is over, magically, the next show plays just fine. I'm noticing problems with certain stations only. For instance, MSNBC, and E!. Hi def channels come in fine and I can watch, for instance, both FNC and FNC Hi Def with no problems, all shows.
I have another brand television with an identical model cable box and have no problems with the other television. I've also had my cable company replace my cable box with another. Same problem, same shows, same channels. [Also, I've checked and this isn't being caused by any sort of parental control setting.]
Any ideas about what might be causing this?
Here's my setup:
Television = Samsung
Model Code: HPT4254X/XAA
Type No.: CA42C9
MFD: AUGUST 2007
Okay,i assumed this is what you have:
HD cable box with HDMI cable connection to the Samsung TV.
Listen careful as follow:
First you want to make sure using the same HD comcast box with HDMI connection for our Samsung TV as well as your other TV.Be sure the other TV do received the missing channels from the Samsung TV.You must be SURE you have tested both TVs with the same HDMI cable with the SAME HD cable box.
Now that you have confirmed the both TVS are using the same HD comcast box and the same HDMI cable but the connection that goes to the Samsung TV are missing some channels,at this point,use another HDMI connection behind your Samsung TV and see if you have the same problem.If so,please also try the left side of the HDMI connection and see if you could get the other channels.
Let me know!
