Question about Flat Panel Televisions
Yesterday my perfect, beloved Olevia 532-B12 reported "No SIgnal" when in was in Tuner mode. I took it to another room where we received cable just fine on another set, and attached the cable. It read "No signal."
It still displayed the old channel labels. (Eg., It still displayed "07 NBC" but read "No signal."
I tried resetting the channels with an auto channel search for cable, but it found no signal.
It displays from our DVD player just fine.
Just a solution.
I attached a video recorder., and selected the video channel.
I was able then to see the channels through another AV slot extension.
Then I reset the TV to factory settings.
Samsung full HD reset code is 0000.
I used the original remote control.
I pressed the button TV/DTV to switch between mode., and from the menu I started
the option to scan the channels automatically.
Because the VCR was still connected it looks like it was forced to admit the channels.
I turned off the VCR and click on the TV the remote control for a known channel ( alternative control used) and surprise ... The TV started to react according to expected.
I disconnected then physically the cabling from the VCR and plugged in directly on back on the
wall connector. All is ok.
What was the reason ?
My wife dropped the alternative remote control ( not the original one) on the floor, and apparently an strange code was sent to the TV., which suddenly displayed " No signal".
I hope this can work for you.

It sounds like this is not a defect but a programming issue that's fixable.
If you have a 532-B12 that isn't working properly, an issue with the electronics, sadly the manufacturer is impossible to contact even by service technicians, and parts nearly as impossible to obtain.
I'm looking to buy a TV with an undamaged screen for that same reason, the condition of the electronics like the tuner inside are not important to me.
I'd rather give you a few bucks than have you toss your TV on the curb, so please contact me if you have an irrepairable 532-B12.
Email me at "geolemon at yahoo dot com" if you have a 532-B12 that isn't working but has a good screen. Good luck!
