LN46A550 clicking sound, no picture

I have a Samsung LN46A550 connected via HDMI cable to a Viacom HD/DVR cable box. It worked fine when I shut it off last night, now I get sound but no picture (not even a blue screen) and the TV just makes a clicking sound. I just tried replacing the cable box, same problem. Any ideas?

Question

Computer Driver

I am trying to show a computer image on the TV screen. I am able to get the picture to show, but I can not change the resolution to allow me to use the full screen. The help menus tell me to change the drivers for the remote monitor. However, when I try to do that there does not appear to be one for a Samsung that looks anything like my model. What driver should I use?

Unfortunately, there are no PC drivers for the Samsung TVs. While the TV is connected to your PC, I would suggest performing a power cycle of the PC to allow the PC to fully recognize the TV. Then try adjusting the resolution on your PC again. If you are still having an issue with this, please contact 800-SAMSUNG for further assistance.

Your TV does not support apps and does not have the hardware to support apps or widgets. So the best way to connect you TV is if you connect a 2010 Blu-ray player with Internet@TV, then will be able to access and apps through the Blu-ray player and use them on your TV.

All current generation Samsung TVs are digital cable ready. All of our TVs include a coax ATSC/QAM tuner that handles digital and analogue broadcast signals as well. If your cable provider transmits HD over basic cable, then the TV will be able to display it. However, most premium HD content is encrypted by your cable provider. This encryption can not be decrypted by the TV and will require a set-top box.

Fixes widely reported issues. If your not having any noticeable issues i wouldn't bother with an upgrade. So always look online through this site to see what the upgrade is supposed to fix. Example, one upgrade was for whites looking pink. I didn't have an issue so i didn't bother with the upgrade. Never interrupt a firmware upgrade. They are usually quick

Question

I am seeing a hot pink tint in whites.

I've had the LN64A550 for 1.5 years and just recently the bright whites started getting a very noticeable flourescent pink tint. I reset the picture settings to factory defaults but that did not help. I also lowered the contrast from 95 (default standard) to 80, which helps but does not solve the problem. This issue occurs for video from both my cable box and my blue-ray player which are hooked up via separate hdmi cables so it isn't a source or cable issue. Does this indicate a hardware problem with the display itself or could it be a settings issue? Thanks!

Hi there dkoch, thanks for the question. As you know, the LN46A550 does have PIP. However the set only has one tuner, so when using PIP, you will be able to have a cable channel in one panel while you have another input that is not cable (i.e. PC) in another panel on the same TV.

I hope this answered your question :)
