I don't think the buzzing sound is normal. I would return it for a new one or call Samsung and get it repaired.

Btw, how loud is the buzzing? In a quiet room with the TV on mute and no other noise could you hear from 5 feet away?

Do what I do whenever I hear a noise that shouldn't be present somewhere--say my car, for example. I just turn the car radio up so I don't hear the strange sound.

Hello, first post - Received a 67A750 12/30 around 8:30pm. It was cold outside so I waited 2 hrs before plugging in and turning it on. I was going through the menu options and the screen froze. I was not able to use the remote or the side buttons for anything - had to unplug the TV.

After about 3 hrs of having the TV freeze randomly and none of the remote buttons working, could not turn off the TV except by pulling the power, I left it unplugged all night. New Years Eve, I turned on the TV and went through the menu options and everything seemed Ok until I tried to switch to alt source, (to PS3 from Cable box both are connected via HDMI to Yamaha receiver), then the TV went black and seemed to turn off/on, could not get the pic back without unplugging TV.

To sum up it seems that the TV will freeze up randomly when going through menu and sometimes will freeze when switching source on the receiver. I have been through the forum and do not see anyone having the TV freeze while using the menu.

The firmware reads: Module:T-AQMAUSC-1005.3, Date 2008-04-17, MICOM: T-AQMAUSM-1000 EDID Success, RFS: T-AQMAUSC-20080416

It would seem that the firmware was update from 1000 to 1005.3...manufacture date is Sept/2008.

Any ideas?

Hopefully it wasn't left in the cold so long that any of its internal components became frozen or damaged.

The picture seems fine from both the HD Cable box and the PS3, it still freezes up randomly when going through the menu or sometimes when selecting a different HD channel. I have had the Blu-Ray movie keep playing while the menu was frozen on top and none of the buttons on the remote nor the TV will work, have to unplug.

A call to Samsung or the vendor who sold you the TV (if they're local), might help.

I'll post pics when the TV is on it.

How do you like the stand? I'm thinking of getting the same one but I'm a bit concerned about the 24" height. I'll be sitting 15-16 feet from the TV

I will be calling the store tomorrow, I have the first year Samsung warranty and for $199 the store has a 50 month parts & labour extension, I purchased.

Don't forget if you used a CC you may automatically have an extra year warranty.

Depends on the credit card, of course. Not all have that benefit.

You are correct of course.

Not that this has anything to do with your problem, but my new (as of Wednesday) HL67A750 has the following firmware on it...

MODULE: T-AQMAUSC-1007.4, DATE:2008-09-19, MICOM:T-AQMAUSM-1000 EDID SUCCESS, RFS:T-AQMAUSC-20080416

I went to Samsung's site and it appears that the 1005.3 level is still the latest download.

WOW I'm having the same problems with my set. And as you stated, the only way to unfreeze the unit is to unplug it for 15 to 30 seconds. My unit have firmware 1006.1 4/30/2008 and was brought home direct from the store on a nice warm day. I'm wondering if it's not a bad HDMI cable because the unit also has a hard time finding the source when changing from like satellite to DVD. If it doesn't find the source then it freezes up.

I use IXOS brand of HDMI cables

You can try making sure AnyNet is turned off for HDMI connections... as a last thing to do is reset the tv to unboxed defaults. If issues still happen contact Samsung as the input controler board is faulty. there are some who have had to replace it under service.

That seems to have fixed the video switching problem. Thanks!!!

Does this set accept 24FPS input at the 1080P resolution?

Thanks
Lord Vader's Avatar Lord Vader 01:35 PM 01-02-2009
Yes. When I play some of my Blu-Ray movies in 24p, it comes through as such.

Just bought a 67 tonight, could not have been easier went to HHGregg told them about the prices I had seen on 6th Ave, Abes, etc... and they did not hesitate to match the price including tax and delivery. Its coming tomorrow and is replacing a 65 Toshiba Projection unit which has served me well but needs to go. I am as excited as my 4 year old on Christmas morning.

Same results whether with the composite or component video cable. I'm quite disappointed. (I need to move the Wii back to the LCD to make sure I don't see that result there now.)

That's strange. I haven't noticed anything like that. Check your settings. Try turning off all the processing options like black level control, dynamic contrast, noise reduction, etc. You may want to leave edge enhancement ON. I find it make things look sharper.

Can I ask you guys about the picture quality of this tv compare to the samsung LN52A650 LCD? I use to have a 70 inch sony xbr rear projection tv. The picture quality was astounding on blu ray. The only back fall was its weight and it can only go up to 720p. So I manage to sell it and bought the samsung 52 inch. The picture quality was a little bit better, plus it has 4 hdmi inputs. However, I miss the big screen size to watch sports. Any of you guys that is lucky enough to own these two television could give me some opinions? I have 2 weeks left to return my tv. I tried to go to Frys to check the picture quality, but how Fry's set up the tvs make them look horrible. All the tv had bad picture quality. I had to go home and hook my blu ray player to my 650 to get the best picture. Its like frys are playing dvds not blu ray. The HL67 inch right now is about the same price I can get for the 650. The 16 inches the HL67 gives is tempting. Are the picture the same or on par with the 650?

THis tv is very nice! A client of mine has one.. I like it.
Thomaschek's Avatar Thomaschek 03:50 PM 01-03-2009
I had my 67 delivered today, set it up in the entertainment center, wife had it built I think its her way of dealing with a big monitor. I can tell you the picture is fantastic. I have a 2 year old 62 inch Toshiba DLP in another theatre room in the house and it does not even come close to this unit. I know everyone is into the flat panel look but I honestly think a high quality DLP can rival a flat panel.

I have waited before to see what a new model of electronics or a SUV or car is, but usually see reviews of the present product and if it is positive, I don't wait another six months or longer to see what those reviews are, then. Since reviews here and at other "Discussion Groups" are so positive I saw no reason to wait. I'm just very pleased with my purchase of the Samsung HL67A750, and really could not be happier. (I have not seen a lower price than I paid last month, either)

Now if the reviews were not so positive, then I would wait and see if those issues had been addressed in a newer model. I like several others are just glad we have ours, and I don't really care if it is continued (should be) next year. There is really no resale to be considered in Automobiles or Electronics, just you and your Family's enjoyment. Yes my Wife even likes the new set and originally could not understand why I wanted to replace our present RP HD 65 inch set. Now she says some programs look like 3D on the new set!
vfr781rider's Avatar vfr781rider 07:31 AM 01-04-2009
At this point though, it sure doesn't hurt to wait another couple of weeks just to be sure

I'm very intrigued by the 67" LED. I have a 3 year old 62" Toshiba which just doesn't seem big enough anymore after we got surround sound for Christmas. I'm still hoping Santa will bring me a 67" or 72" LED with Darkchip 4
