Pretty sure the TV should play an audio only input, I believe I've done that before using the side input.

I have wire ties and they're fine for bundling wires together, but they do not hide them in a more-or-less wall colored wrap. This is a WAF or more correctly SOAF (Wife Approval Factor, Significant Other Approval Factor respectively) issue.

I tried audio input only and got nothing, but I'll try again. Perhaps I made one of those silly mistakes/oversights to which we are all subject.

The set does not recognize/enable an input unless it sees a signal on it. Unfortunately, the input it looks for is on the video cable. I found no way around this on my 'B630.

Hey, everybody. I suspect there's not a ton of traffic on this thread at this point, but here it goes anyway. I have an LN52B630 that's about two years old. Recently, the entire screen goes grey for a second followed by red and then green. It only happens intermittently, and then returns to normal. I've heard of some power supply issues with this set, but I'm also wondering if I have a bad cable box or a bad HDMI cable.

Thanks, in advance, for any knowledgable imput.
post #1924 of 1956
Intermittents can be hard to track down. You might want to try it for a while just hooked up to an OTA antenna and see if the symptoms continue. That would be a way to rule out the STB and cable.
post #1925 of 1956
Yeah, I've been doing exactly that. I also replaced the HDMI cable coming off the cable box. I guess time will tell. Thanks for the response.

Personal Update:
Happy to report that after 18 months of constant daily use, my 52B630 is still working glitch free with no problems. After all this time experimenting with the infinite combination of different settings, I usually leave the set in Natural mode with AMP set to clear, while watching HD cable.
I still wonder in the back of my mind how much better, if at all, the 52B750 would have been. Oh well.

good to hear-our B630 and B650 the same
post #1928 of 1956
Ditto our 46A630.

Looks like my problem was a bad HDMI cable, happy to say. Glad so many others are having good experiences with their B630's.

Happy to hear you got it straightened out!

Travis, good to hear your 630 is still running strong. Even though I don't trust any of these new fangled TVs for longevity, I'm pleased to report my two year old 46 B630 has been trouble free as well. Excellent picture and good uniformity.

Gotta laugh about the B750. Back then we all wanted one.

Not I. The 750 has a glossy screen, which is what I wanted to avoid. The 630 is semi-matte and is much less reflective.

Agreed, that is why I too chose the 630.

JOOC... When I turn off our 'B630, it plays a little tune - most of the time. Occasionally, it does not.

Is this of any significance? Are there certain circumstances when it does or does not play the tune?

My 40 B630 is still performing as new, a year and a half later... I have no complaints whatsoever...

Hi guys I'm new hear and was seaching for info on the panel replacement. The 46B630 is approximately 26 months old and the panel died. I do not have ext warranty and the cost is approx 750.00 to get it fixed.
With all the knowledge and expertise here do you think it's worth it? I cannot even buy a comparible TV for that amount.
Thanks in advance,
erl

Good day,
I was wondering if there was a way to reflash or update my ln55c630 to be a C650 to take apart of the apps on the store. Would like to do netflix's and others. Thanks in advance.

Speaking of Netflix, I rarely if ever set AMP to "Smooth," but have been doing so since streaming Netflix through my Blu-ray player. The picture quality has at times been simply breathtaking, as if the slight jitter inherent in many computer video files is somehow synchronizing to the higher AMP setting and yielding levels of clarity that I don't normally see in regular HD transmissions.
(I realize this is probably just my imagination, perhaps I'm just impressed with all you get for only $8 a month)

Edit: I'm officially saying good by to $100 a month Cox Cable bills, and am embracing $8 a month Netflix wholeheartedly.
post #1939 of 1956
BTW, Netflix HD only outputs a 720P signal, but by streaming Netflix to my Insignia BD player, it upconverts it to 1080, and the 52B630 indicates it's receiving a 1080 feed.
I'm not gonna lie and say it's as good as high def cable, but it comes in as a real close second. Watched True Grit the other day, and the picture quality was excellent. I'm having to be a bit frugal in these tough economic times, and Netflix is gonna shave about $90 a month off my cable bill.
(no, I don't work for Netflix)
post #1940 of 1956
i just bought a condo and the previous owner threw in his tv (ln52b630) and htib (bose lifestyle v20). ive read this entire thread fairly thoroughly and no one else but seems to have trouble getting audio through external speakers when playing a movie from the usb media play feature.

is there a way for me to pass the audio through the tv to the bose receiver?

thanks
post #1941 of 1956
Download the owners manual from my signature, and you should see a diagram which indicates where the audio out jacks are on the back of the TV.
(page 12 of the owners manual, page 14 of the pdf)

9-AUDIO OUT

"Connects to the audio input jacks on your Amplifier/Home theater.
When an audio amplifier is connected to the AUDIO OUT [R-AUDIO-L] jacks: Decrease the volume of the TV and adjust
the volume level with the Amplifier’s volume control"

thank goodness for extended warranty - Power had to be recycled before set would come on.....Sears replaced both boards under extended warranty - three visits, no popped caps
post #1943 of 1956
I have a LN52B630 but I have never played with the DLNA function until now. Is it true that pause, fast forward, and rewind don't work with all MKV files played over DLNA?

I just finished a semester abroad and had my LN46B630 stored at a friend's house all semester. Unfortunately, during that time his basement took on a little bit of water damage during a flash flood and I think it got to the TV. The picture works fine in regular definition and HD as well as in every source, but whenever I try to turn up the volume it says "Not Available". Does anyone have an idea of what part(s) would need to be replaced and how much it would cost (ballpark)? Trying to figure out if I should get a new TV or if the repairs would be cheap enough to fix this one. Thanks for any help.

Hi Guys,
Just trying to find out what model has replaced the B610?
I love the anti-glare screen and was looking to buy the new version of
the 610 for my son for gaming....probably a 32" or 40" model.
Was the B610 continued on since I bought mine new in 2009?

Thanks
Take Care,
Craig

Try going into the audio or setup menu to see if the internal speakers have been turned off.

Also try a factory reset.

I'm having an issue with parts availability and was just told by Samsung that there are no "user replaceable parts" in my television. ie: They will not sell me replacement parts.

I'm trying to find a mainboard (P# BN94-02597D) for my LN40B630N1FXZA. I have struck out all over. (shopjimmy, etc). SearsPartsDirect says the have it, I placed an order but has been sitting in the 'pending' queue for days on end. (And now it reads they are someday shipping me a # BN94-03142G board (for a LN46...), I can only find rough notes that it may be compatible.

Anyone know if that board truly is usable, or another reputable parts supplier?
I'm really frustrated by the response from Samsung that basically says 'You may not fix your television yourself.'.

Any help appreciated,

I don't think its worth the trouble going around to find a new part. Less than 2 minutes on Google showed me some used boards for fairly cheap.

Good luck!

Because I couldn't recreate, he claimed that I probably had a bad hdmi cable. Since then, it happened one more time. Knowing what I knew after that call, I didn't turn it off or unplug it, but disconnected all connections to the tv (except power, of course), and the problem didn't go away. Once I turned it off & back on, it went away. I did register the tv so I have about 4 more months of warranty, and I was able to show that it's not a cable so hopefully I won't get too much grief from them..

Not sure if anyone still look at this thread..hopefully so. Regarding my OLD post above... I had this issue with my tv back in 2010, before it was out of warranty. It happened very rarely for a long time, but now is happening more like once a week. I see now that my quote doesn't include the original issue. Out of the blue, the tv will flash back & forth between the picture, and static. When it does this, the entire picture looks pink/purple. When I unplug, leave sit for a couple minutes, then turn back on, it's fine.

I know that this tv is WAY out of warranty, but I'm wondering, because I did report the issue and open a ticket while it was under warranty, will Samsung do anything for me on this?
