Customer Question

We have a Samsung TXT3093WHX/XAA.

We moved recently and since that time, it is hit or miss-mostly miss, whether most of the inputs are going to work. I'd say it was a result of how the movers may have handled the TV, except that I moved it myself and there was no jarring or bumps that occured.

HDMI works great through our TimeWarner cable box - No problems.

Any other input: Composite(AV1 or AV2), S-Video, Ant produces all produce a streaked snowy bar across the middle of the screen and the TV must be powered off, the video input removed and the TV turned back on inorder to bring the normal picture back.

We have an analog 3-way switch that allows us to switch between DVD/Video player, XBOX or Wii. This had always been connected to the AV1 composite input and had worked fine.

I've tried changing the Composite cable(s) with a new one. No difference.
I've tried connecting the devices directly to the TV via various inputs/cables. No difference.
I've tried direct S-Video. No difference.
I've tried direct coax into Ant. No difference.

The audio is clear in the background, however as soon as the video is connected the screen goes to the stretched, streaked, snowy picture. Sometimes it may take a few moments after the input is made, but generally it is immediate.

Thanks for any feedback or ideas.

Thanks for your question! This is not a request for more information and I apologize if this message caused you any confusion.

I'm sorry that you haven't received an answer yet. Most questions are responded to within the hour, but this can depend on different factors, including the difficulty of your question, how many questions are being posted by customers, whether or not this type of question can be answered in an online forum and how many Experts are on the site at the time your question posts.

I will go ahead and try to find an Expert to assist you with your question and appreciate your patience. You will receive an email notification when an Expert replies to you, just as you did here. Unfortunately, I can not guarantee a time-frame for which yours will be answered and I apologize a head of time if the wait is longer than expected.

Please do not reply to this message unless you do not need further help. If that is the case, please let me know and I can assist you with that. When you reply, it locks out the question from the Experts and will slow down their response time to you. If they need more information, they will let you know.
