How Can I Improve Reception On My LCD TV?

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

 Pixelating, ghosting, and snow on LCD TVs are often caused by a weak signal. There are two functions your can use that might strengthen a weak signal and improve your reception:

  • The LNA function 
  • The Fine Tuning function.

Both are described below.

Important These functions are available on many, but not all, Samsung LCD TVs.

Using the LNA (Low Noise Amplifier) Function

To use the LNA function, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. Press the Menu button on your remote control. The Main menu appears.
  3. Press the Up or Down arrow button on your remote to select Channel, and then press the Enter button.
  4. Press the Up or Down arrow button on your remote to select LNA, and then press the Enter button.
  5. Press the Up or Down arrow button on your remote to set LNA On, and then press the Enter button.
  6. Press the Exit button to exit.

Notes:

  • LNA functions only when antenna is set to AIR or CABLE.
  • If the picture is noisy with the LNA set to On, select Off.
  • The LNA setting must be made separately for each channel.

 

Using the Fine Tuning Function

To use the Fine Tuning function, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your TV.
  2. Set your TV to the station for which you want to improve reception.
  3. Press the Menu button on your remote. The Main menu appears.
  4. Press the Up or Down arrow button on your remote to select Channel, and then press the Enter button. The Channel menu appears.
  5. Press the Up or Down arrow button on your remote to select Fine Tune, and then press the Enter button. The Fine Tune screen appears.
  6. Press the Left or Right arrow button on your remote to adjust the fine tuning.
  7. To store the fine tuning setting to your TV's memory, press the Enter button on your remote.
  8. Press the Exit button to exit.
