Question about Samsung TXN2771HF 27" TV

1 Answer

Constantly flashing "Not available"

My Samsung TXN2771HF has started flashing "Not available" all the time, and the remote does not control the TV.  When the menu or channel buttons on the TV used, the TV continuously and autonomously scans through the menu options or channels, respectively, without stopping.

    Thanks, jruhnke!  I fixed it, and luckily I didn't experience the problem with the inputs you did.  For anyone else with this problem, here are the steps I took:


    1)  Lay the TV on its face (on carpet!) and take off the outer plastic housing.
    2)  Slide the motherboard up and out as far as the wires will allow.
    3)  The front panel buttons are connected by a grey four wire ribbon to the front right corner of the motherboard.  Locate that ribbon cable and simply disconnect it from the motherboard.
    4)  Reassemble and enjoy!

I have the same TV and had the same problem. It's due to a failure in the front-panel buttons, which are very sensitive. Mine got so sensitive that they were registering presses all the time, even when nothing was near them.

Since I never used the front-panel buttons, I solved the problem by opening up the TV and disconnecting the front panel from the rest of the TV electronics. This was somewhat difficult to accomplish due to the fair bit of TV disassembly I had to do to get to that connector. After I put the TV back together, the "NOT AVAILABLE" problem was solved, but somehow I had damaged something else--the tuner, composite, and S-Video inputs lost their color and now only show up black-and-white. (Luckily, I only use the component video inputs, which were unaffected.)

Light touch control panel always lit. "not available" keeps flashing on screen.


This is a common problem--the touch-sensitive buttons on the front panel are malfunctioning. Easiest solution is to unplug that control board from the main board inside the TV. See here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t886190-constantly_flashing_not_available

I have a Samsung 27" TV and need to set it on channel 73 to get a picture from my Satelite Dish. The highest channel the tv goes to is 69.


Set the TV to cable tuning mode and use that channel 73. You have it set for air now so it can only tune to channel 69.

Sky remote tune to samsung


1. Press tv on your Sky remote control.

2. Press and hold down select and the red button together until the red light at the top of your Sky remote control flashes twice.

3. Press tv again

Then enter the remote control code using the number keypad. The red light will flash twice if a valid code has been entered.

Samsung Code: 0060

4. Point your Sky remote control at your TV and press the Power button. If this turns the off as you'd expect, then the tv should be set, press Select and the remote should work

5. If the TV does not turn off press tv, then press the Power button again, repeat this process until the TV turns off, when the TV turns off press Select.

TXN2771HF (5yr old) - Front Panel a/o Remote Issue


Sounds like the 5 volt supply is low, Look for the 5 volt regulator, Measure you can go directly to the sensor 3 pins 1 will be 0 volts one will have 5 volts the other is usually a fluctuating 3-5 volts if 1 pin has to have 5 volts if it is low check capacitors around the 5 volt regulator probably 47uf to 100uf look for rusty look on the leads. If you see it change it! check these voltages with set turned off ( standby ) do not attempt if you dont know what your doing. Good luck. The reason it works when it is on is because there is a run 5 volt supplement.

Not Available Flashing


My Samsung TXN3271HF had the same issue where the poorly-designed Soft-Touch channel button begin to register phantom touches (leading to the "Not Available" message flashing on the screen).

The fix is simple: remove the plastic strip containing the Soft-Touch buttons and when replacing the strip, leave some room between the buttons and the TV's circuit board (you will see the circuit board once you remove the plastic strip).

Hope this helps.

No Picture, No Sound...Please Help


The most common problem this set has is the Horizontal Output shorting, usually caused by the High Voltage transformer drawing to much current. Whether it's the high voltage circuit or the power supply, having a tech look at this set would not be cost effective. Start looking at the newer technology. Hope this helped.
