Yes, we checked all of that and nothing.

As a follow-up, called the Fry's Electronics store this morning and they opened up two other Samsung TV's of the same model and they were also missing the screws.



Called Samsung and it will take 7 days to get them here.


I'm off to Ace and Home Depot to see if I can find a match on my own

Well, after a bit of faffing about ( and discovering that a spare hdmi cable I had was actually crap and didn't work with 1080p ) I finally got my sons new PS3 running in 3D and I must say that for all those that question 3D movies, you really must try gran turismo in 3D on a 46C8000, it'll blow your socks off. Yes there is some cross talk going on but it just takes racing games to a whole new level. Wow.....

Found some screws at Home Depot that worked. Yeah.


OK, some general first time questions. I have DIRECTV and it's going through an AV receiver. When I change the channels it says that they are broadcasting at 60hz...I believe this tv is 240hz....did I do something wrong with the setup? Why would it say 60hz?

Are any of you using a specific AV receiver you recommend with the 8000? I noticed the DIRECTV 3D isn't passing through my AV receiver to the tv. If I connect the Direct receiver directly via HDMI to the SAMSUNG 8000 then it's no problem, but obviously I lose the stereo sound system when I do that. My guess is my AV receiver isn't compatible with the 3d portion of DIRECTV's 3D channels and the tv (everything else works fine).


Thanks in advance

The frame rate you see is what the TV is receiving on it's input, not the refresh rate of the panel (they are two different things.)


In regards to your other issue, I would suggest the following in lieu of purchasing a new AVR..


Connect the Directv box directly to the set on one of it's un-used HDMI inputs.


Next, connect the component output and optical audio from the Directv box into your AVR...


The quality will be the same for all DTV content (except 1080p PPV and 3D..)


You can then use the AVR for all of your audio needs, and switch to the HDMI input on the set for 3D content viewing..


The only thing that is a pain for you is that you must make sure that the TV's audio is at 0 in the HDMI 3D input or else you will get double audio out of both the set and AVR...


In lieu of that, you will need a HDMI 1.4 compatible receiver to pass the DirecTV signal through....


If you want recommendations for a good AVR, you need to tell us the budget and then we can all go from there.

Thanks...let me give that a try. As far as a 1.4 compatible receiver, if I go that route, probably looking at a budget of no more than $650

Backlight = 18

Contrast = 80

Brightness = 55

Sharpness = 50

Color = 44

Tint = 50/50

Eco Solutions = All off

Color Tone = Normal

Size = 16x9

Dig Noise Filter = auto

MPEG noise filter = auto

Film mode = auto2

Auto motion plus = standard

Smart LED = high

Beware though that the 608 had an issue passing Directv 3D..... Don't know if they fixed it.


Onkyos are great bang for the buck, and you can probably find the 708 or even 808 for a street around his budget. See Amazon, etc...


Jest make sure you do the research.

Just signed up to this forum to learn all I can from my new 55 LED 3D TV from Samsung.


My first question is the "Judder" problem that I noticed and read about online when Automotion is turned on. I haven't seen any post's in the latest replies and I assume there has been a fix/solution? Just to get my facts right, the Judder problem is the one when the picture seems to freeze every 20 seconds or two minutes for a second then resume? Anyways, can someone enlighten me where this issue now lies?


Second, what is the last firmware (Nov 2010) do and are there any issues with it?


Thanks for any help.

Thank you both.


I picked up a Blu Ray Samsung 3D player tonight as well. Having a lot of fun with this tv. Very nice. Still playing with the settings a bit, especially for sports while watching the NFL games today.

I would say that if you picture is freezing for a second it's more likely to be an issue with the input source I.e you cable/satellite box or blu ray player. The tv doesn't have a memory so wouldn't be able to "store" a picture for any time at all.


Either way, I can say as I get any on my sets I suspect irfan be ironed out with the correct settings.


As for firmware, we had a release in the eurozone on 15 dec. Not sure what part of the world you live in.


Having had a bad experience with firmware upgrades ( one of them stuffed the 3D on my tv ) I tend to leave them alone these days unless there are any major changes, which there seldom are.

What is directv in this instance? I have been seriously considering a 608 and was thinking of getting one in the jan sales ( now down below the £400 Mark )

Ok, so the American eq of sky. Sorry my inlaws always had cable (comcast I believe ) so never got involved in satellite.


That's fine then, shouldn't cause me any grief this side of the pond. Thanks

Just turned on the TV to check, and it stopped working again. I contacted Samsung support they need to send somebody out to fix it. Obviously something is broken.

After not having the TV work for the last several days, the repair guy will come out tomorrow, and hopefully fix my TV.

Back in September I bought the un46c7000 series with my wife before our child was born. I received the starter kit with it, two pairs of glasses and a 3d copy Monsters Vs. Aliens. The batteries that came with the glasses were dead. I called samsung support to see what the deal was, the gentlemen told me they would send me batteries to my home free of charge. A week passed and I called back, they told me I wasn't receiving any batteries, that was fine. A few months passed. I called in this month on Dec. 5th to inform them of a spot on my screen (it seemed as if it had melted a small portion of my viewing area). No joke the spoke is about this * big. Though it wasn't a huge issue, but I didn't pay 2500 bucks for a spot on my tv. I called samsung like i said and they were going to send a repair guy to my house. That was fine. I checked my service number online and it said my ticket was cancelled. I called back in several more times to have my issue "cancelled" over and over. After my seventh repair ticket I told them I wanted an upgrade to the 8000 series. After an hour on the phone, I got my exchange approved and a 25 dollar best buy gift card. I called back to samsung support and spoke to ecr and they told me I would receive more 3d glasses for my tv as compensation. That made up for all the hassle, except for two things, A. they knocked my warranty 4 months (had to call in to fix that) and when I called in about the warranty, I also checked on my tv and glasses. I do get the 8000 series upgrade, but I don't get the glasses. Oh well, I'm content i suppose. I'm waiting for my tv to be exchange within the next 7-10 days. So it's been nearly a month. I'll post pics of it when I get it and let you know what it's like. The 7000 series was indeed very nice, the 3d surpassed what I expected, I did my research and the 8000 is supposed to be "premium". I've hear a lot of issues with the series though (8000) will the firmware update fix the 3d ghosting i've been hearing so much about?
