Question about Samsung LN-S4692D 46 in. LCD HDTV

8 Answers

No display The TV is on, There is sound but no picture. I know it is not the source because the TV Menu and source indicator (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, Component, ...) does not even dispolay. I can notice the LCD panel is on as it goes from a "ligthed" black to completely black when I turn the set on and off. I can also notice a momentary difference in brightness when I press the source or menu button.

    Thanks Guest... Please do let me know as I also have a repair man coming 9-14-07.

    On another note, I am very disappointed in the Samsung customer service. I am 35 days out of warranty and they wouldn't do anything to help me.

I had the same problem. Unplugged the TV for about 4 hours and when I plugged it back in everything reset and it works fine. I stillh ave a service call open under my extended warranty. I am still going to have the service member come out and look at it anyway.

Well I just joined in the world of broken Samsung's. Died Feb. 1st. I had three month additional warranty, but of course it died the day after. Same problem, no video, just audio.

However if you call 1-800-522-7341. This is the number for Executive Customer Relations. They extended my warranty and contacted the repair center for me. Probably won't be fixed by Superbowl Sunday though. I expressed my disbelief that after 15 months a 2400 set can die. I have to call back on Monday for additional help.

The technicians arrived today. They opened up the tv and to my surprise there were 2 green boards similiar to a PC motherboard. They swapped one at a time and tested the tv which turned out to reveal that the 2 boards were fine which only leaves the problem to be the lcd display itself. I was told that this part was still under warranty from the manufacturer since the lcd tv is only a few months old to begin with. I was also told it would take 4-6 weeks to order the part and then they would reschedule to install it. Lets see what happens next. I will keep you posted. Hope this helps my model tv is Samsung model LNS4692DX/XAA

Under menu, option make sure that you haven't selected audion only and that input select is on the first or second options,(not the third one). If you can't even see the menu, then your connections are probably bad. Hope this helps, Mark

I can't get audio to work on my Samsung UN40HU6950F UHD TV HDMI 1 input using the Time Warner Cable Cisco 4742HDC cable box.


if all 4 inputs work with another input source(i.e. your Motorola box) it indicates the issue is with the TWC input source. Also check your HDMI cable to be sure it is in good condition & properly plugged in on both ends.

Iplugge in my PS3 using an HDMI cable and i get no feedback


ps3's are a pain in the _ss..
you need to connect it through your standard cables as well.. use the component cables that came with the ps3 and connect it to your tv's coloured inputs..
change the tv to that source and then go to the video settings on the ps3, and then choose the hdmi option..
now.. once the option is chosen, you have about 30 secs to change the source on your tv to the hdmi source to see the picture while the timer counts down (making sure both the hdmi and the component cables are connected to the tv at the same time)..
now that you are on your hdmi source on the tv, choose accept (X) on the ps3 menu and you should have your hdmi setup
if you run out of time, no problem, just go back to your component source input and repeat the process faster

PIP function does not work, the settings is greyed out also! I have a wii, PS3 and freesat :)


Hi nikkicollier,
PiP for your TV works between two different sources. This means between a component source and an HDMI source or between an HDMI source and another HDMI source. PiP also works with a PC connection, e.g. when using the TV as a computer display. PiP does not work between two component sources. The setting will be grayed out when you don't have a configuration that is supported, as the Samsung TV's are usually able to automatically detect which sources are plugged in and available.
derrickolz.png

I'm not exactly sure what sort of configuration you want your PiP to work in, but try one of the following configurations.
  • TV Cable (through VCR or other via Component input) with Satellite in PiP (via HDMI input)
  • PS3 (via HDMI Input) with Satellite in PiP (via Component Input)
  • Wii via HDMI Input) with PS3 in PiP (via HDMI Input)
You can usually find an HDMI cable for much cheaper at an electronics supplies shop, Radio Shack, or on eBay or Gumtree.
To change your PiP settings:
  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control. Select Picture and press Enter.
  2. Select PIP and press Enter.
  3. Press the enter button again, and press up or down to change the setting to On and press enter again.
    Note:
    If PIP is activated the screen will display in widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio.)
  4. Press the up or down buttons to select the Source then press the Enter button.
    Select the source of the sub-picture by pressing the up and down arrows and then pressing the Enter button.
    Note: The sub-picture can serve different source selections based on the what the main source is set to.
    Note:
    You may notice that the picture in the PIP window becomes slightly unnatural when you use the main screen to view a game or karaoke.
You can download the full PDF manual for your TV here (large download at 26MB.) Much of the PIP information can be found on pages 13 and 14.
Good luck, I hope that helps.

Tried to hook up ps3 to a different, older tv. was hooked up with hdmi cable and optical audio cable. bought a component cable that works with the ps3. I can't get a picture or sound. or anything else. ...


HDMI is a digital signal, so your TV and your PS3 are basically talking to each other over the connection at all times. That's why when you plug an HDMI connection into your PS3, it can detect the connection and try to switch right to it. Component cables don't work the same way, they only output information, so it's a one way street. Your PS3 is still outputting information, but it still thinks it needs to output to the HDMI port. The fix is pretty simple, and there are two options.

The Long Way
  1. Plug your PS3 into an HDMI TV.
  2. Change the Audio settings first, so your console outputs audio to a Component source.
  3. Now change the Video settings last, so the PS3 is outputting to a Component source as well.
  4. Your screen should go blank once you do this. Hit the X button once, wait a moment, then use the power button on the front of the PS3 and turn it off.
Now just plug the PS3 into the other old TV with the Component cables, and turn it on. You should have picture and sound now.

The Short Way
  1. Leave the PS3 plugged into the old TV, and turn it off with the front power button. Once the light has turned Red, hold the power button down for at least 5 seconds. Don't let go until you should hear the system beep twice.
Now you should be able to use your PS3 on the older TV without a problem.

The Short Way is a simple reset of your video card, it causes the PS3 to revert to outputting to it's out-of-box settings. If neither of these ways worked, check here at the Sony website, and one of those solutions may better fit you, but it sounds like one of the two solutions above should solve it.

Please leave a comment or rating letting me know if this solved your problem, constructive feedback is always welcome. Good luck with your console and good luck with your games.

I cannot get a picture on the screen of my tv. I have my tv hooked up to a digital cable box. The "source" for the tv has always been the "HDMI 1". For some reason that i do not...


Hi
Firstly and would remove all the leads from your TV and check them. If after checking your HDMI leads etc... and its still the same then i would reset the TV to the original Samsung settings. This is completed on your remote control by the following........

Turn your tv to standby, on the remote when in standby press the keys on the remote in the following order........ INFO.........MENU..........MUTE.........POWER ON.

You will now notice the picture comes on with the engineers settings in the background. With the direction keys on the remote scroll down to number 12 (RESET) Then press OK or the right direction key, Your tv will switch off and load the Samsung factory settings. Switch the TV back on and go through the setup procedure.Once completed then try your HDMI again.

If it is still failing then there is a strong possibility that your Eeprom IC on your main AV Board is corrupt and needs replacing. This should only be attempted if you have good soldering skills as they are Surface mounted and very small.
My advise if your skills are not that good is just to replace the main AV board (Scart Board) these usually sell for around £50 but WILL solve your problem.

I have gone trough everything i know here that would cure the fault, most times one of the above three will cure this, but im afraid other times its just time for a new AV board.

Hope iv helped some people out here.
Any comments or thumbs up appreciated.

The tv reflects that it is showing in 480i whent he cable is at 1080i. i am using a hdmi cable, i know the tv is plug and play, but if that is not working can i manually switcht the tv to 1080.


There are several solution you can try. Go to your menu and manually set the TV to your own personal setting is the easiest step. The other is to change the source that generate the 1080 res. The HDTV is only capable of producing the signal it receives, not the other way around. If you have a reliable and true 1080 source, then your tuner is having some other issue or the HDMI port is bad. Try using the 5 component YCB plus sound to duplicate the problem. The Component port is capable of producing up to 1080i source. Let me know how this turn out.

I have connected my DVD/VCR to my Samsung 32 inc television but I get no sound


I had a strange issue yesterday too.

Our Samsung DVD/VCr all in one combo did a similar thing.

I used the HDMI cable for the DVD into the TV input labeled HDMI/DVD. That worked okay.

But the VCR part didn't work.
At one point I got sound but no picture. Using the RCA cables in the back on another input "Component 1"

I was trying to squeeze the best picture out of the player using the S-VHS cable.

I thought it did picture only, but the Plasma seems to be more picky about input sources.

I got everything to work keeping the DVD as a separate HDMI to Plasma TV feed.
The VCR was 3 RCA's Yellow (picture) red and white for stereo sound.

I then reset (toggled through the inputs to "reset" the TV.

It finally worked but I was two days mulling it over.

See if this works for you.
My TV was a Panasonic Plasma, but shouldn't matter.
Skip the S-VHS line and connect the inoputs with the TV off.
You MAy need to go into the input of set up menu on the TV (ours had a wrench as an icon) and set the Component 1 or 2 to "VCR".
