Customer Question

I have a Samsung DV3 full HD 1080p tv only 2 years old. Can you tell why all of sudden I get a blank screen and it turns itself of and on when trying to view normal tv reception. But if I turn my PS3 on it works fine, can play games and watch dvd's with a clear picture, but as soon as I turn it to tv its just blank, I'm baffled..

Did you run the channel scan?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

The tv won't allow me to scan with blank screen, I can't bring the tools or menu up on the screen unless I turn the PS3 on, and if I select scan for channels it disconnects the PS3 and goes back to tv mode and blank screen.......





where,s the ACCEPT

So when you have the blank screen, if you press the MENU button on the tv itself, the menu wont show up?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Nothing at all, Tim, I don't understand why I know the tv's on but it will switch of and on by itself if left in that mode. But if I turn the PS3 on it gets the playstation home page and I can play my games ok and watch dvd's. I can bring up the tv menu's on there but if I try to use them it dissconnects the PS and hence back to the blank screen....
