Question

US models have dual voltage capability?

Does the LN40B630 come with dual voltage capability? I am living in the US for the next year and a half and am then going back to Australia, so I am looking for a TV that will work in both countries.

If you purchase the unit within the North American Territories, it will only have support for NTSC/ATSC/QAM broadcasting systems and only 100v-127v 60Hz power. Outside of the NA territories you will not only need a converter for the broadcast, but also for the power.

Infolink uses the internet connection to collect RSS feeds that are then displayed on the screen in widget form. Internet@TV uses customizable Yahoo widgets that allows for a more robust internet experience. Due to hardware limitations, unfortunately, one can not be upgraded or downgraded to another.

I'm sorry for the confusion. The reason you can only use a Samsung Wireless linkstick is because in order to use a 3rd party adapter, the TV would need drivers for EVERY adapter on the market. By supplying the market with an official Samsung Linkstick, we cut down on compatibility issues and we can guarantee that the linkstick will work properly with the unit the first time you install it.

Unfortunately, all current consumer model Samsung TVs do not offer a cablecard connection. Due to the ever changing format and standards by the cable companies in regards to cablecards, the technology has been put on hold and then replaced by more stable technologies.

How do I connect sound from a computer?

I have connected my PC to the HDMI (DVI) port via a DVI to HDMI cable. I would also like to connect so that the TV will play the PC audio. I have connected a audio cable into the PC audio jack but that doesn't seem to work. How do I connect the PC to the TV so that audio and not just video plays?

Since you are connecting the PC to the TV via an HDMI cable, the PC audio input on the rear of the TV will not work. You will need to connect the audio output on your PC to your TV via a 3.5mm male to RCA red/white male. By plugging the 3.5mm jack to the PC, and then plugging in the RCA jacks to the DVI audio input on the rear of the TV (note: make sure that your HDMI connection from your PC is connected to the HDMI 1/DVI input on the TV), you should be able to hear the audio from your PC on the TV.

Question

How do I fine tune text from my PC?

According to the manual on Page 22 you can adjust the screen from fine to coarse. This page of the manual does not show in the menu on the TV. I have checked to update the software and it says I am up to date. I'm currently typing this on my Pc that is connected to the TV. It is connected at 1080p resolution and the text looks rough. Is there any way to adjust this via the menu?

Side note: on page 22 it says there is an "auto adjustment" feature on the Tools menu. No such feature exists on my Tv's Tools menu. How do I find it?

I'm sorry for the confusion. Most of the manuals are written for the entire series of units, and not just for one specific model. In some cases there may be some information or features that are not offered on your TV. That being said, if you have your PC connected to your TV through any other connection that is not the standard PC VGA connection, these option may not be available. Consequently, if these options are not available to you, there is no way that I know of to activate them on your set.

Question

LCD TV 40" does not turn on, what's wrong?

There seems to be a problem with the switch in that I cannot turn on the TV. The light in the front start to blink like normal, but, then the light goes off completely. In a few seconds the light starts to blink again. This cycle happens forever. Sometimes it comes on and there is no problem turning it off.
I have tried using it with and without a cable box, there is no difference.

I'm sorry you are having issues with your TV set. Make sure that your power outlet is not sending erratic voltage to the TV it self. That can cause power surges and harm your TV. I would have also said to change your source, but it seems you have already tried that. If your TV continues to have issues, please contact service at 1-800-SAMSUNG for further assistance.

If you have the cable connected into coax and have a secondary signal (PC, HDMI, Component) active, you should be able to use the PIP. However if you are continuing to have this issue, please refer to page 20 of the user manual if you have it, or you can download it from the product page under the support/download subtab.

The new TVs only have one RF inputs because with regular over the air antenna you are suppose to get a DTV box which have a splitter for both air antenna and cable TV.
Now since this TV already have DTV you will not need a box to convert, however, you will still need to purchase a tv sliptter to access all your needs, . The is also a vivid instructions in the manual as to how you go about this problem.

The Dynamic Contrast Ratio is the contrast ratio of the TV with all the contrast enhancing features active and working properly. Some of these features include the special Panel material and the unique Picture engine plus an active back light unit. Because these features can not be deactivated, the contrast will always be much higher then the static contrast ratio, which is why Samsung only publishes the dynamic contrast..

the B630 series has a more matte screen, and the B650 series have a glossy screen. If you have a well lit room I would opt for the B630. I cannot attest to the viewing angles, but I have the B630 and the viewing angle is very good.

Also it should be noted that the B650 has more "widget" in the infolink. I believe there is a widget for Youtube, among others. The B630 only has widgets for News, Stocks, and Weather.
