don't know what "flipped the screen" means. From the looks of it, it crash landed. So I assume the cables pulled out. U have audio, video, and HDMI connector there. Plug cable from computer into appropriate spot, Set computer to use TV as display - rt clk screen and select resolution and detect display.....
There are two ways to connect it. You can connect it to the rf connector with a coax (like a water hose) cable or with an RCA (yellow, white, red [preferred method]) cable. Then depending on which one of the choices you made you'll have to switch the television over using the TV/Video button. Before you press that button though make sure you have the converter box plugged in and turned on so you'll see it's screen when you're flipping video inputs. If you choose the rf connector method you will have to be on channel 3. You'll be able to tell when you get to the fuzzy screen where you can press 03 to turn to channel 3. If you chose the RCA method then you'll have to choose video 1 or video 2 etc. whichever one you connected the cables to.
same problem all set to replace TV but tried another source DVD instead of dish and it was fine. Possible the cable (cheap HDMI) but reboot the dish (hard) pull the plug and fixed it up, probably the HDMI connection at the source or the TV (or the cable)
I had a bad digital board also. I went to parts.com to order a new part way cheaper than from repair service. the only problem I had was that after installation which is super easy 4 cables to unplug and replug. when I turned on the TV the picture came in upside down, not good. no one would give me the code to flip the screen as it is in a hidden menu, well after months of searching the web I found it!! It works for most all newer Samsung TV's. turn the TV off, hit mute then 182 and then power on button on the remote. the "hidden" menu will pop up and you scrool down to h-flip and flip the screen. I don't recommend messing with any of the other setting as you could likely really jack up the TV but at least you can fix it for a 3rd of the cost you would spend otherwise.
