Customer Question
Hi.We have a 48...

Hi.We have a 48 in Samsung tv that is acting up. We also have direct tv. When you turn on the tv it comes on, and then a picture comes on a goes away, and keeps doing that. So, I turn it off. and back on and it does it again. then the 3rd time it stays on. Sometimes there is sound and sometimes not. please help..

Technician's Assistant: What Samsung model do you have? How old is it?

Samsung series 6, Led TV bought in 2012.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

No, our other tvs do not do this. Yes the menu works after the tv stays on.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

We just started using the Smart features like Amazon Prime, to watch movies.

Does the TV also take three tries before it displays picture when you try watching the Smart apps? Or does it only happen with DirecTv?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No, the Samsung remote works the first time. I use the direct tv remote to watch regular tv.
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay, I need you to elaborate as to the following:

1) Does the set ONLY take three times to show a picture when viewing DirecTv?

2) If you turn the TV on and use the Samsung remote to select an APP- does it display the first time?

Are you still with me here?

I am going to replace the batteries in the direct remote, then I will be back to you.
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 7 months ago

Okay that sounds good- let me know what you find. We need to rule out whether the TV or the DirecTv equipment is the root cause.
