Digital Cable Ready Question

I want to buy a Samsung 61" LED DLP Model HL61A750 HDTV and I see on their specs that it says it's not digital cable ready. What does that mean? It doesn't need anything to plug it into the cable and play, right?

Hey barfinkl1,

"Digital cable ready" TV's have a built-in feature that allows them to receive both standard and high definition signals, typically through the use of CableCARD technology instead of a set-top box.

While this specific Samsung model (HL61A750) is not digital cable ready, it does feature both an ATSC and Clear QAM tuner. This means that it should still be able to receive locally broadcast and unscrambled over-the-air digital signals, but will require a set-top cable box to receive any kind of scrambled digital signal.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

White dots on screen
I believe it is the digital projection chip that is beginning to fail. Causing white and black spots to appear. To repair this may cost more than a new tv. If you want to attempt it yourself check out the above link. Hope this helps

If using a cable or sat box try a DVD etc when set cold, a box can cause lockup issues via signal.

Not a color wheel is correct, more likely a DMD which is rather pricy and almost as much as the entire light engine which comes with it.

I Have A Samsung DLP 61 Model HL-T6187AS and Serail- AHEK3CKPA01439H and It Has No Red What Could Be The Problem

Most likely problem is the Red LED (pt# BP07-00023A, substitute BP07-00029A) $96.68

& or the LED driver board (pt# BP94-02321B) $170.00 includes core

Don't forget that if you are using component input cables it could be your Red input line either faulty cable or not plugged in all the way on either end.

Samsung HL61A750 61 Inch 1080P Led Powered DLP HDTV will not stay on. It can be turned on, but 15 or 20 seconds go by and it goes/tunrs off. Everytime.

It sounds like the lamp bulb, I had the same problem and I took the bulb unit out of the back, cleaned it out really good and replaced it, it works fine now and I didn't have to buy a new bulb unit for about $200.00. Good luck.

I have a Samsung HL-S6186W 61" DLP HDTV I could get the hd channels over the air with an antenna before but now I can't get any thru cable without going thru my dvd recorder tuner first which degrades the...

Select TV input, Press Menu, Select Channel, in menu Antenna=Cable (for you), (then perhaps, Auto Program with Cable or Air+Cable), tweak Channel List, turn on LNA if needed, shouldn't be.
Somewhere there may be different modulations, some offset the channel a fraction and are important for channels above 13. I'm basing this on my non-cable Samsung HL-T5687.
BTW, I had an HLS until it gave trouble, paid for an upgrade to LED from bulb when I got HLT. Very pleased, until it fails. -Ken
