Question about Samsung LN-S4692D 46 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Image gets pixelated and a black screen flashes

We got the Samsung LN46A550 3 weeks ago and got an HD cable box too. The picture looks clear and nice but the thing that happens is at times, the picture gets pixelated. And at other times, the picture blacks out and returns with the source info. The pixelated image only stays for a split second, and doesn't always fill the whole screen. My theory is that something might be wrong with the cable box (maybe a weak signal strength), but we got the TV and the HD cable box at nearly the same time, so I don't know which one is causing the problem.

Thank you for your help

Grainy picture


Greetings israelmaker,

In order to receive true high definition television, you will need a high definition cable box. Basic channels are going to look more grainy and not as clear overall even with an HD box, however you won't be able to view or decode the actual HD channels without a box.

In addtion, what type of cables are you using to hook up your existing box? This can have a substantial impact on the picture you see.

I hope some of this helps.

My new Samsung LE32R88BD was showing a pixellated picture on movement, but it filled the entire screen. Since switching my Virgin box through HDMI, the picture is less pixellated but I cant get the picture...


I did some reading on the net, try to "calibrate the screen". Try set the input to 1080i, then run the thx optimiser to give you a starting point, then try a bluray with a bright image.

Keep replaying the same chapter and try raising and lowering different settings. you may find that your brightness is set way too high and after dropping it from 90 to 29, you may find that detail will have crept into the image. Try giving the colours a boost as well.

The detail in HD is very subtle, and having a properly calibrated screen will make all the difference. So to answer your question: set your input to 1080i, make sure your HDMI is outputing RGB and start tweaking that screen!

Picture Flashing


I have a similar problem but my picture flashes black and white and the sound goes at the same. Also sometimes it will flash pink and blue. I've read elsewhere that the issue is a known problem with compatability between Samsung tv's and sky boxes. Apparently the box needs to be replaced but I'm unsure what type of box. I've read perhaps a PACE sky box could fix the problem. I think the best option would be to contact Samsung - that's what I'm going to do.

Black end "stripes" on non-HD images on LN-2341W


Arte you using a cable provider? if so you should be able to adjust it to a wide screen or stretch, most cable providers are supposed to apply the settings when installing the box, so that the screen will auto fit your set, otherwise you will get image retention
