I have searched low and high, and browsed through the official Samsung C6000 posts, but can not find much about my problem. I am having problems with my Samsung un46c6400 television using the latest firmware (Feb. 2011). When using either Netflix or HBO Go internet applications, the screen does a "Blink" to black for about 1/2 to 1 second throughout the show. This only happens when using an internet application, and i've tried to find other information on the internet but can't find a solution. I read through some samsung help pages, and this problem does not occur on the other two televisions in my home when playing the same video's. I have another 3d Samsung TV which does not happen on, and an older sony rear projection TV which it does not happen on as well. I know this is not an ISP / Router issue and my firmware is up to date.
I've already gone through all tech support with Samsung and Costco concierge, and they are trying to claim it is a Software issue, and that it would not be covered under support. But, since the problem is happening with both Netflix and HBOGO, how can it only be the software's fault, instead of either the firmware or the TV. Lastly, when the picture does goes black / blink, the quality does not change, so it is not a SD / HD switch within the application.
I have recorded a video on Youtube to show the problem here: http://youtu.be/7YsPLNFqB9E
and the video problems are at the second marks: 15'', 57'' and 1:06''. Please forgive the iphone video colors.
In addition, when using an xbox360 to watch Netflix or HBOGO, i do not have any problems at all with the blinking.
Lastly, the EcoSensor and other settings for auto adjusting the TV are turned OFF.
Please help with any thoughts or any suggestions if you have had this issue.
