Start by heading to the TVs menu, then scroll down until you see the "Channel" sub-menu and click enter. Once there, adjust the Antenna setting: "Cable if you are using a cable connection and "Air" if you are using an antenna. Then scroll down to Auto Program and press enter. On the next screen, you will be given the option to run the auto program in either air, cable or auto formats. So if you have an antenna, press Air, if you have cable, press Cable or if you want the TV to figure it out, just press Auto.

All of this info can be found on page 20 of your user's manual.

There are two different kind of active burn in protection features on the Samsung Plasma TVs. The first one is PixelShift (PixelShift can be adjusted on or off and allows for intensity level adjustments). This feature will basically move all your pixels, uniformly, a predetermined amount of pixel spaces in order to prevent a pixel from being lit in a specific pixel space for too long. However, if ghosting does occur, you can use the other anti-burn in feature, called Scrolling, to help refresh the screen. The Scrolling feature will "scroll" a gradient of black and white across the screen to help eliminate the ghosting, if any, that has accumulated on your panel. Both of these features can be found in the Picture Options section of the TV's menu.

Question

How do I turn off the source?

When we are watching TV, the source (component 1 [Cable] and component 2 [DVD]) keep popping up on the top left hand corner of the screen for no apparent reason. Is there a way that this can be stopped??

the Infobox with the sources information should only pop up when switching between sources or when the signal from the source changes. Please ensure that the signal from your source is a consistent signal, and that all of the cables are properly seated into the ports on the TV. Unfortunately, there is no way to deactivate the infobox and prevent it from popping up. If you have any further assistance, please contact 800-Samsung.

Question

Sound

I currently have a Samsung surround sound system with a dvd hooked up to the television. Recently one of the components I have connected to one of the HDMI ports has quit producing sound through the surround system. I am reasonably certain that the component in question is in working correctly as I can still produce sound through the television speakers. I am still able to produce surround sound when playing a dvd as well. Is there a component in the television that could be bad . I have tried disconnecting all components from the power source as well with no result.

Thank you for contacting Samsung. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough details here to answer your question. Please contact us at qasupport@sea.samsung.com and let us know the model numbers of your DVD player and Home Theater system.

Also, please clarify how you're connecting the devices. It sounds like you're connecting them both via HDMI to the TV. Further, can you specify when the surround sound is failing? It sounds like it's failing with over the air TV. Thank you for being a Samsung customer!

Question

Why are there black lines on my screen?

I had this 50'' screen TV for about 2 or 3 years now and I never had this problem till about 2 months ago when a black horizontal line appeared at the top of the screen, didn’t think much of it because it was at the top of the screen. It was fine last night then when I turn it on today to watch TV; there was another black horizontal line just above the middle of the screen. Is this fixable?
