The 2 rear speakers are hooked up to the wireless base station, and this is where my problem is. I can't get these two back speakers to work at all. I know Samsung has many wireless units for sale, so even if you don't have this exact model and could help out, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
behind the wireless module do you have an ID SET button?
in the manual says if it doesn't make the wireless connection, turn the main unit off. press remote button numbers button 0 1 3 5 and unit turned on. with the wireless module turned on, press ID SET on the back for 5 seconds.
I tried adjusting the position of the wireless unit, I tried the 0 1 3 5 hocus-pocus sheeit. The ID reset. Still does not work.
BTW, there is an ID reset. It's one of those recessed buttons you need to press with a ball point pen.
I'm going to call Samsung today. And what's with the so called "Engrish" grammar in that manual anyway? It's a joke. You know, Samsung makes cool techno sheiit and even more wonderful televisions, but their user manuals are a complete joke.
Samsung, please take a page out of Sony's User Manuals. We consumers are more savvy than what you give us credit.
I'll post back what Samsung has to say about the wireless situation.
So far, Samsung tech support was pretty painless. Did not have to wait on hold very long at all, tech agents were well spoken and knowledgeable, and they were polite for the most part.
I'll report back on how the repair process goes.
It now works. Hooked up the rears to the receiver, Plugged the TX card in, , turned on all power. It works.
There was no documentation on the repair, so I have no idea what they replaced/fixed, but I suspect it was the TX card, because there was packaging for a TX card in the repair box. Looks as if they had pulled a new TX card out of the packaging and tested it before returning.
That's it. I'm a happy camper now with my wireless surround. The system sounds excellent.
The only ache I have about it is, I have to cycle through the inputs on the unit before it starts transmitting the signal from the source and producing sound. Pain in the ass. I have it hooked up via optical cable to my Samsung 7 series LCD, so compatibility should not be the issue. I don't think its the cable because it will do the same thing for analog cables as well.
The problem is that the rear speakers connect properly and work, but the sound cuts out on the rear channel (and for some reason all the sound cuts out when this happens) on a regular basis. The LCD on the main receiver displays "Rear CHK" or something like that when this happens. Any ideas?
I should also say that the wireless receiver has a line of sight to the main receiver AND it's only like 8 feet away.
Go and sit infront of the SYSTEM. Take your clicker and press on "ASC" to turn it off. When its off, then press "MODE" and change it to MATRIX the back speakers WILL work. I'm so happy...Surround Sound! If ASC is turned on, it will not allow you to change the mode. You will have to do this for each different item you have running (ie: TV, DVD, RADIO).
This worked perfectly. Thanks a lot. I don't understand why so many people are having problems with the rear wireless speakers though. I bought mine today and it works perfectly. Now I'm just waiting for the optical cable to come in so I can get true digital sound instead of the analog one I'm getting right now.
I know this is an old thread but we just purchased the Samsung HT surround and the rear speakers won't work. I have tried the ASC button but nothing happens. the DVD/Receiver button just blinks. I have tried the sinking think and the reset button on the back of the receiver. Nothing seems to work. Any other options?
