Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

I'm going to send this to you in pieces due to 200 character limit.I have an older roku which I've used for years.It looks like a thumb drive and plugs into the tv, which on this Samsung tv is hmdi 2.

I selected that as the source.Something came up but the remote had no effect. On my tablet I could direct my movie (netflix) to play on the tv, which it did. But the remote does nothing.I changed the batteries, nothing.Right now the only thing on the tv is the rolling picture of one suggestion for a movie after another. Nothing from the remote. This is the first time I've tried to use roku on this tv. But I'm doing the same thing I did on my former tv. Same cable service (Spectrum) which provides the wifi,etc. Same equipment

SOURCE: Playstation 3 Does not display on TV using HDMI or regular video

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:

1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep

After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.

Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.

I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!

SOURCE: Sanyo TV DP42647 No picture or sound, remote does nothing

This is the best solution for your problem as a 40 year experience with wires etc. Go to the source of your cable signal connector . Open it and clean the terminals with emery paper , sand the end of the cable shiny clean from corrosion , get a new barrel connectors with gold terminals if possible lengthen the ends of the cable , insert and tighten good, use thick rg-16 or rg 40 cable with good insulation ends crimped professionally with a crimpier or buy ready made , not from dollar store. Get a gold plated professional splitter if you need one or two , it will cost about 15 or more each . Make the cable runs as short as possible, using the thick good cables. If needed get a signal magnifier. From radio shack or the source etc. Connect them good and tight . Ground the splitters . Problem solved , you will get crystal clear channel 2 to 7 including 3 and 4 . Isolate the TV cable from other cables and power wires. Vitally

My phone is sending every text message that I send out through SMS and it splits up my text message on the other end how do I stop this


SMS stands for SMALL Message System.

If you texts are as long as emails, they will be broken up. Long messages should go via email. Contact your carrier to ask what their character limit is on SMS. It should be 160 max.
160 characters Sending email to SMS is free for the sender, but the recipient is subject to the standard delivery charges. Only the first 160 characters of an email message can be delivered to a phone, and only 160 characters can be sent from a phone. Text-enabled fixed-line handsets are required to receive messages in text format.

Why is my brand new Alcatel phone putting in strange symbols when I send a text if its more than 160 characters?


My Samsung cell phone limits me to 140 characters so this is not unheard of. I split my messages to under 140 and ask people who need to write a veritable epistle to do so by email because my phone cuts vital pieces when it chops messages up on receipt.

How do i login on my tv using the roku device that was previosuly working fine.


If your Roku is plugged in, your t.v. has also have to be set to the Roku player select button or a different channel. Either, DTV or something similar. Then it will show up with the Roku Icon and then it takes a few minutes to come on.

Can I see singer treadle bases to judge the year


One rule of thumb is... The more ornate the older it is. But as to a place that might give years based on the appearance? I've not found one yet. However, you might want to poke around on this site. They have some surprisingly old sewing machine info.

Another thing you might try is looking through old magazines on google books. I've found interesting adverts and articles in those old mags that provided great information when restoring things.

Good luck.

Hi. Regarding sms/txt. When I exceed 450 characters it automatically converts the sms/txt to mms. How can I prevent this? Sms is cheaper than mms when you send it.


You are speaking of SMS concatenation....


By default, all SMS traffic is limited to 160 characters per message.


Depending on the handset and the carrier, if you go over 160 characters the handset may automatically send a second\third message to the recipient to finish the complete message.

Slightly older phones would automatically go to MMS after 160 characters,

Much older phones won't even give you the option of going over 160 characters in one SMS message.


So most likely, the 450 limit is a limit hard coded into the phone.

NEED MORE THAN 160 CHARACTERS FOR TEXTING WITH MY SAMSUNG INSTINCT S30. IS ANYTHING OUT THERE?


160 character limit is 1) a limit of SMS not the phone 2) Your phone should be able to send multiple texts or SMS messages if your character count goes over the 160 limit. I know my iPhone allows for it but my Blackberry Storm does not. You might think about using email to send larger messages as a whole.
