There is, If you go into the TV's menu, and under the picture options, you will see the option for the Auto Motion Plus/120Hz. If you set it on High, you will be getting your picture upconverted to 120Hz. Please be aware, the TV will not display that the picture is being upconverted. The info box at the top corner of the TV will always display the actual information of the signal, and not the converted information it self. But as long as the Auto Motion Plus option is on High, you will be seeing a 120Hz picture.

Question

120 hz display

I recently bought an hdmi cable. when i get/use hd programming through the hdmi, my tv says it's displaying at 60 hz NOT 120. I've checked the menu settings for 120 hz and it's setup correctly. Why is my tv displaying 60 hz instead of 120 hz?

That’s a great question. The screen on the Samsung 120Hz/240Hz panels will always display at their respective Hz. Even when the signal is only being transmitted at 60Hz, it will always display at 120Hz/240Hz. Activating the Auto Motion Plus feature will allow for judder reduction and blurring reduction, depending on what settings you activate. This will enhance your 120Hz/240Hz viewing. The reason you are seeing the 60Hz in the info box is because the info box only displays the signal’s actual Hz and screen resolution and not the info of the picture on the screen after the TV processes it. Meaning that the 60Hz you are seeing is the signals actual Hz and not the screen’s Hz. Currently there is no way to display the screen’s Hz in the info box.

Question

Where are the front panel buttons on my TV?

The owner's maunal shows that there are front panel buttons which are activated by touching them with one's finger. I do not see these "buttons" even when I touch the area on the front panel where they are supposed to be. Is my set defective? If not, how do I make these buttons "reveal" themselves. Please email me back with your response. Thankjs.

The buttons should be along the bottom of the unit, on the right hand side. I do not think they light up on their own.

There are actually 4 main differences between the LN32B640 and the LN32B650:

1) The B650 is ToC Red while the B640 is ToC Gray
2) The B650 offers a higher contrast ratio (by 20,000:1)
3) The B650 offers Infolink, which allows you to access internet content via widgets on the TV screen, where as the B640 does not offer this.
4) The B650 offers USB2.0 with movie playback compatibility, while the B640 only offers MP3 and photo playback.

Question

Does LN32B640 have auto wide feature?

Auto wide as in, when it detects that a signal is meant for 4:3 aspect ratio, it will put the black bars on the side of the screen to compensate automatically, so I don't have to manually do it?

Depending on what connections you have and what devices you have connected to the unit, you may not need to adjust any settings. Example: Using your LN32B640 with a DVR that is connected to the TV via HDMI. If you have your TV on 16:9 and a 4:3 picture is trying to be displayed, you will see the black bars along the sides of the picture. As far as I know, as long as you have the DVR set to 16:9 as well, it will transmit the signal (4:3 signals will have the black bars added) to the TV in 16:9. That goes the same for any device that is connected to your TV, regardless of its cable connection.

For the Nvidia 3D vision, you will need a display that accepts a 120Hz signal, and not one that takes a 60Hz signal and upconverts it to 120Hz. That being the case, the LN32B640, or any Samsung TV for that matter, will not accept a 120Hz signal, only upconvert a 60Hz to 120Hz. For a unit that will accept a 120Hz signal, you will want to look at the Samsung 2233RZ computer monitor.

That’s a great question. The processor on the Samsung 120Hz/240Hz units will always display at their respective Hz. Even when the signal is only being transmitted at 60Hz, it will always display at 120Hz/240Hz since the processor is always upconverting the signal. Activating the Auto Motion Plus feature will allow for judder reduction and blurring reduction, depending on what settings you activate. This will enhance your 120Hz/240Hz viewing. The reason you are seeing 60Hz in the manual is due to the fact that the Samsung TVs (regardless of Hz) can only accept a 60Hz signal. The TV then upconverts the signal to 120Hz/240Hz respectively. *aside from 3D devices, there are no other devices on the market that transmit at over 60Hz).

I'm sorry, but the only languages that are available on any Samsung TV sold in North America will be English, Spanish, and French. To date, there are no firmware updates or service packs that will add this functionality. The reason your TV in Turkey allows for Turkish is due to the fact that you own an international version that was specifically made for that market. the LN series is a NA model line and only offers the main languages spoken in this region.

How to manually add channels that auto program won't detect

Can I manually add an OTA (Over The Air) channel that is weak but can be received? I would like to add 45.1 & 45.2 but I can see no way to do this with my remote. Am I able to do this manually? My auto program will not add this channel but it can be viewed at times.

As a matter of fact there is a way to manually add channels. If you head into the TV's menu, then go to the "Channel" sub-menu, you will see an option called "Channel List". Enter that option and you will see the "all" option at the top. Click into that and you will see the full view of every channel, displayed and not displayed, that your TV has found. From there you can manually add the channel by highlighting the channel you desire to add, click enter, and select "add" from the drop down menu.

Question

HDMI connection not recognized

I am using a v1.3 HDMI extender (HDMI over CAT6 cable) to the LN32B640. It does not even recognize I have connected a cable. If I plug in any other TV it works fine. I noticed that I can connect a DVD to the TV directly and it will recognize the connection. I also noticed that even if the DVD is not plugged into power the tv knows that the HDMI cable has been plugged in. What's wrong?

Great question! There are three ways to connect your PC to your LN32B640: monitor cable, HDMI to HDMI or HDMI to DVI.

Although all of these connections are easy to hook up, the PC monitor cable is the most common. To connect it this way, just use a standard PC monitor cable to connect from the monitor out of your PC to the PC input on the TV. Some adjustments to the PC's resolution is required.

If your PC offer HDMI out, I would highly suggest using this connection, since it is a basic plug-n-play connection (meaning almost no adjustment is needed on the TV or PC)

HDMI to DVI is almost the same as straight HDMI, but in this case, you will want to connect the DVI end of the cable to the PC (if available) and the HDMI into the TV. This is also considered a plug-n-play connection.

The LN32B640 is a 2009 model that was introduced over the end of spring. The reason you may not see this unit online and in reviews is because it is a Best Buy exclusive. All the internals of the unit are the same as the B650 though, so reviews on the B650 should reflect the B640.

We have also used the color option and changed the color accordingly.
