Like any electronic device, Samsung televisions can have some faults, such as overheating, sound interference and fuzzy picture. Some faults should only be worked on by qualified technicians, but others can be mended by performing basic connection checks and adjustments.

Instructions

    Sound

  1. 1

    Alter the volume on any external device, such as a games console or Blu-ray unit, that is linked to your Samsung TV if audio levels seem unusually low. Push the "Menu" button on the device's remote control and select "Audio" from the display that appears. Increase the volume using the "+" button on the remote control.

  2. 2

    Press "Mute" on the TV's remote control. This will prevent sound coming out if it has been pressed accidentally. Ensure no headphones are attached to your Samsung TV as this will block external audio output.

  3. 3

    Check that cables are connected to the correct outlets on the rear of your Samsung TV. Cables linked to the wrong outlets can result in sound and vision interference.

    Picture

  1. 1

    Press "Menu" on your Samsung remote if images lack definition, are distorted or have pool colour balance. Select the "Picture" icon from the options that appear on screen.

  2. 2

    Choose "Mode" followed by "Sharpness" from the menu. Changing sharpness levels can refine image quality substantially. Amend "Brightness" and "Tint" if TV pictures are too dark or light. Certain Samsung models have a "Color Option" feature, too. This allows you to increase levels of particular colours using the "Up" and "Down" buttons on your Samsung remote control.

  3. 3

    Carry out a "Factory Reset" if you experience persistent problems with the image quality on your Samsung TV. Hold down "Exit" on your remote control with the TV switched on. Release the button after 10 seconds. Select "OK" followed by "Enter" once the option to reset your TV appears on screen. The power will turn off once the reset is done. A factory reset can sort many problems with image quality, colour saturation faults and sets that are only showing images in black and white.

    No Video

  1. 1

    Look at the cables that connect external appliances to your TV to ensue they are securely attached. Loose connections can cause the TV to receive weakened signals, causing a "No Video" message to appear.

  2. 2

    Check that the cables are in the correct portals. Portals for cables are usually colour-coded on Samsung TVs for easy identification.

  3. 3

    Connect another device to the TV set if problems persist. Buy new cables from an electronics store if the "No Video" problem continues as your cables might be damaged.
