Samsung 40 inch LCD

I have my Samsung LN-40A530 LCDTV hooked up to one peripheral, a Samsung upscaling DVD player. I just bought both a couple days ago at Best Buy. The TV periodically goes blank or blue and I get the message "Searching for Signals" before it returns to the picture. I have unplugged the TV and replugged it several times, but I still have the same problem. Thanks for your help.

    By hooking up another device to the TV, I found out the problem was with the DVD player, not the television. It was a Samsung upscaling DVD player. So I returned it for a Sony and no longer have the problem. If you have a Samsung DVD player, that could be the problem, as some models are documented to have HDMI output problems.

What is the best and most cost effective way to stream WIFI to UNSMART Samsung HDTV?


Suggest getting all the smart TV functions from a upscale blue-ray player.

If you buy next generation BD player then replacing TV in the future you would have a compatible BD player such as function etc.

Samsung has many types and for example the BD-J6300 has near-4K Upscaling Wi-Fi and 3D Blu-ray Disc Player has plenty of features.

Hope this helps?

I don't know which cables to use to hook up my sony plasma to a samsung dvd player, or how to hook it up.


Hi there. To enable your Samsung DVD player to work on your Sony Plasma, you will need two things:

1. The Power cable for the DVD player
2. The Audio(Red and White) and Video(Yellow) cables that should have been provided when the DVD player was bought. If ever these cables are not available, you may buy these at any Hyper Market such as Wal-Mart or a technology store such as Best Buy. These are called Composite Video and Audio Cables.

If you have the previous cables, connect the 3 Audio/Video cables to the back of the Plasma TV, it should contain the appropriate ports. Yellow cable(Video) for the Yellow port. White and Red for the Audio Left(L) and Right(R) ports. Then connect your power, turn the DVD on and switch from TV to other input which should display the Samsung Logo.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

My player seems not able to upscale the signal from my antennea and DVDs


Upscaling will only occur when playing DVDs. You have to use an HDMI connection from the DVD player to the tv. For upscaling of DVD's you will also have to setup the upscaling resolution in the DVD player's setup menu. Be sure to set the resolution to one that your tv will support.

If your tv does not have a HDMI input, then you will not be able to use the upscaling feature.

Upscaling will not occur on antenna signals. This is not possible because the hardware (inside DVD player) is only meant to upscale DVD video.

Again, to upscale DVDs ONLY, you will have to have an HDMI cable going from DVD player to TV, set up your upscaling options on your DVD setup menu and have a TV that has a HDMI input and is capable of recieving the upscaled resolution you have set your DVD player to.

If you have any further question regarding this, let me know!

Blocky images on a Toshiba DVd player


Well, this was no brainer. After simply unplugging the device for about 24 hours, everything went back to normal. Seem that the player is still having this problem from time to time, probably Bios related. I have also advise Toshiba support of the problem and the workaround. Hopefully, they will come with a permanent solution to that problem.

Have a nice day

Samsung ht q100


No it does not. It will upscale regular DVD's to HD resolution, but that's an electronic trick. You'll need to buy a BluRay player to watch high definition discs.

The HD-DVD standard has been abandoned by Toshiba, so the Sony players are the one's to look for.
