Problems with Samsung 8000 LEd

by sharpie18 / October 28, 2009 1:29 AM PDT

I recently purchased the Samsung LEd and the picture looks great, but I hooked up my nitendo Wii yesterday and it is black and white with fuzzy lines running everywhere. I then tried to hook up DVD player and clarity of the picture looks great, but the color is pretty much in black and white. Has anyone else experienced these problems or is it a problem with my television.

Did you connect you component cable correctly?
You can get B/W picture if you mismatch PbPr inputs.

The problem you are having is that the way in which Samsung assigns the color jacks; it is non-standard. You probably saw the Yellow/Green, Red and White/Blue jacks together and plugged them into those connections. And, you probably went to your TV and set to the input to COMPONENT. This is way 100% of everything I ever used has been. But not this TV. Here is the solution:

The video input is correct but switch to the red and white audio jacks NOT NEXT TO the video input just to the left. Second, you will find the signal with audio and color video NOT ON component video but on the AV option.

Not sure why they did it this was but it solves the problem.

I had the same issue and was able to get the wii to work following the advice here but what do I need to do to make it so I can plug the wii and dvd player in and not have to unplug and replug every time I switch. What is this 1996?

It's definitely hooked up wrong. Try the solution above and if that doesn't work consult your user manual.
