Question about Samsung TXE2745 TV

1 Answer

Proscan PS50700 I have problems with my local channels being snowey. The cable people came out and said my TV is building up static. When we disconnect the cable to discharge the static, then reconnect it clear for a day, then it happens again.... Any idea how I can prevent this from happening?? Ginger

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Technically, when a TV signal is said to be snowy, it indicates that the incoming RF signal is weak; on the other hand, when a TV signal has static, this refers to electrical noise that goes with the TV signal.

Having said that, then to your concern:

  • for snowy signal, it is the cable providers problem. They have to change where your incoming cable is tapped from, check/replace the feedin cable itself or worst case scenario, replace the line amp/distribution amplifier feeding your cable input;
  • for static noise, what is required is to check possible sources which could include (but not be limited to) electronic ballasts of florescent lamps, electric fans, hair dryers, shavers, wireless phones, computers and others.
Additionally, you may want to check if you have any RF producing devices attached to the TV such as VCRs, DVDs, game consoles. You can try unplugging them when not in use.

Worst case scenario is the tuner block of the TV is getting weak (unlikely but possibly). You can try rewiring the cable to feed first into a VCR, connect the VCR to any of the free Video IN, and select channels through the VCR. If significant improvement, then you have just confirmed an internal fault with the TV tuner, if problem persists, then the static/noise/low RF is caused by something else.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I watch a DVD with this tv. It seems like it is connected right but just showing static


Hi. By static, do you mean 'snow' image ? DVD players must be connected to AV inputs and selected as an AV signal, either by using the remote control, either using the local controls in the set itself. If you see, what you call static, means that your TV is on "a" channel without areal input. (antenna inputsignal).
You can use the local TV channel button (-), go all the way down below channel 1. There the AV inputs are located. Good luck.

Thanks -- I guess the problem was just a simple matter of being located in a downtown building & not having cable. However, it turned out that we could get the local PBS affiliate well enough to watch the inauguration.

How to program the TV to utilize cable channels


Go into the menu on your tv via built in button on the tv, or the remote. Look for something that reads "Program Mode" or "Program Channels"

Tv's have to search for channels that have a good solid frequency if they are just hooked up. newer tvs do it automatically

Very Strange Audio Problems on Cable Channels; No prob w/VCR


Mike, before you decide to pony up the money for the hdtv take the thirteen inch set in and connect it to the same coax cable that is currently connected to the set with the audio issue. If you have clear audio the issue is definitely with the set. If not try replacing the coax connectors behind the wall plate, the barrel in the wall plate, and the coax from the wallplate to the tv. I am curious if the audio is clear when playing a DVD, VCR or Xbox? Hopefully we can isolate the problem. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Suddenly no sound & no picture overnight: is my TV dead?


If you have static siugnal, sure TV is not dead.

Check the aerial cable, ensure it is well plugged in and getting signal.

If you are using a receiver box, check cables to TV and receiver (freeview, sat, cable etc.), try setting channels on receiver again, if it does not work but you get static, then either the cables or receiver are defective.

Test the TV on standalone , connecting it to an external antenna.
Tune again the channels, and save the preset.
If still no signal then the antenna socket on the TV may be defective.

Try using the TV with a DVD.

If you can watch DVDs, and TV is not keeping channels preset, and you tried all the above, at this point htere may be a fault in the tuner card inside tv.

Call the phone number listed on tv user manual to get support, and eventually repair it.

White Noise Sound


Your problem is somewhere between the tuner and video detector circuit. The signal entering your TV carries: video,red color,and blue color as well as sychronizing pulses for color and horizontal and vertical deflection ( actually vertical sync. is derived from horizontal sync.) along with burst pulses to synchronize the color. After all these, the sound is an fm signal entwined with a pilot signal for stereo audio. WHAT a mess! After the audio passes through all this, it is detected and sent to the audio processor. If any frequency has drifted away from it's value then you loose the sound. SO... your problem could be in any of the tuned circuits or in the audio processor IC (chip). Any component changing value could creat this problem. Most likely the audio processor IC. You'd need to have the set checked out by a tech to find your problem. Stargazer
