I recently bought a new Samsung LN52B630 to replace my old CRT and I've noticed it takes about 10 seconds from when you press the button until you get an image on the screen if I'm using the cable tuner input. More like 15 seconds if I'm using the HDMI input from my cable box. Is that normal?

Normal. I have a 550, two Sharps and a Toshiba that all have about the same response time at power on.


It is I believe the CCFL lamps for the screen that have a short warm up time.

I think it's dependent on the source. My current tv takes about 5 seconds connected to my pc.


Other sources that have to go through handshaking protocols or automatic resolution adjustments might take longer.

My Insignia 22" LCD displays Please wait...Takes about 10-20 seconds. Almost as long as old Vacuum Tubes set. The TV has a lot of computing power to work with digital signals, so a bootup is OK with me.

Some brand/models have a selection in set up that allows a stand by mode and quicker on time.


My Toshiba ZV650U takes 8 seconds with Power on mode set to "Power saving",

and less than 2 seconds when power on mode is set to "Fast". (Stand by)


B series Samsungs do not have the power on mode setting.

Your PC takes 3 minutes to boot up.

I knew there was a reason I used a Mac. 24 seconds from power off to fully usable desktop.


Honestly though, I think maybe you're still on a Pentium 90, because XP running in a virtual machine on my Mac boots in 25 seconds. Of course, Windows cheats and still has around 15 seconds of process loading once they put you on the desktop, so the actual boot time to usable desktop is more like 40 seconds.
