Do you have 2 tuners hooked up or an additional source playing?

    Play something in the DVD and try toggling the AV-1/2 first to see both sources. if it works play with the PIP.

Can't get pnp to work


I presume you mean PIP which is picture in picture---the only button which will control it is on the original remote--PIP, SWAP etc.

The set uses two tuners inside for this--one is main and other is PIP--you may have a bad tuner.

If PIP button brings up a screen--hit the swap to see what happens-if one is nothing or snow and other has a picture--got a bad tuner--it can be either (some are combined into a single tuner).

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.

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.

I have a sony (model KP61V75) a split screen came on (two pictures) and I cannot figure out how to get it back to one screen. Im going crazy!


Some television remote controls have a PIP OFF button, while others only have a PIP button that needs to be pressed repeatedly until the PIP/Twin-View window disappears.


NOTES:

  • Some Sony rear projection televisions have a FLASH FOCUS button that will turn off the PIP/Twin-View feature.

  • Some Sony universal remote controls, if programmed to operate a Sony TV, can disable the PIP/Twin-View feature by pressing the REC or ENT button.

  • If the original TV remote control is not available or is not functioning properly, auto programming the television tuner orperforming a power reset may deactivate the PIP/Twin-View feature.

  • If pressing the appropriate buttons on the TV remote control does not work, then the PIP/Twin-View window might be from a two-tuner cable or satellite set-top box. If this is the case, use the remote control provided with the set-top box to remove the PIP/Twin-View window.

Possibly, it won't do PIP when you're on an HD type input.

Display problem


Yes, the "PIP" is the display of multiple channels at one time. On your remote you need to go to the zoom pip button and press it, if nothing go to the meno then look up the "PIP" tab and go there to try to zoom out.
