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.

My tv. proscan mod. ps50700 won`t turn on


The PS50700 uses the 195 series chassis. The most common cause of the set not starting up is a shorted flyback (high voltage) transformer. Sometimes a shorted flyback will also cause the horizontal output transistor to short too. These parts need to be tested and/or replaced by a tech familiar with the RCA 195 chassis.

My Proscan PS50700 turned on by itself in the middle of the night and began cycling through the channels. Luckily, I happened to see the light from the TV and got up and turned it off. When I've tried...


Well, that's the front panel button.Try pushing each button until you know which one is the cause.Actually,you need to find someone to replace this button, because to replace this button,you need to open the TV case, that's why you need an expert to do this.

Hope it works!!!!

Setting up playstation


The PS50700 uses the PTK195 series chassis. You can switch the TV to the video mode by pressing MENU, press channel down 3 times to highlight "4 Channel", press MENU, press channel down twice to highlight "3 List and Labels", and then press MENU. The current channel will be highlighted, and you will press channel down until you go below channel 1, which is where the video inputs are (VID1, VID2, FRNT). To exit, press MENU, choose "Exit", press MENU and choose "Exit" again, or just wait until the menu times out. An easier way is to get a universal remote that has an "INPUT" button.
