I had the same problem. Installing the firmware update fixed it. It took about 15 minutes before it finally stopped power cycling startup and came on so I could run the software update off the settings menu.

Try unplugging the power cord (not just turning the power off) for 1-2 minutes so that no power can travel into the tv. When you plug your tv back into a power source, it should go through a new power cycle and allow you to turn the tv on as normal.

I have the same problem. It eventually stays on after about two minutes of powering off and on. I can't update the firmware like someone suggested, because I already have the most up-to-date firmware.

I play my IPOD Touch videos on my Samsung TV with no problems by connecting the IPOD to the composit A/V input on the side of the tv. The composit connection is the one with a yellow video, and a red and white audio. I cannot play videos on my TV using the component connections (blue/green/yellow video, reg/white audio), only the composit.

Question

Firmware for Model LN46A650A1F

Recently I had occasion to review info on my Samsung TV. In that process, I discovered a download page for firmware. Firmware 2007.0 was available and I downloaded it to a USB and followed the instructions to unzip the file. When I plugged the USB drive into the port on the TV I was asked if I wanted to replace 1003.M with 2007.0. Wasn't sure if I should go ahead and replace the version with the "M". Any help appreciated.

In the event that you cannot find the wireless adapter for this TV as instructed in our previous reply, you also have the option of connecting it via a wired connection. In order to achieve a wired connection to the TV if the router is not nearby, you can purchase a third-party wireless media adapter and run a wired connection from it through a switch to the TV.

Thank you for contacting Samsung.

Unfortunately, the wireless LAN adapter for your 2008 TV is no longer available through our parts supplier. The information is below if you would like to try searching for elsewhere online for purchase.

The main difference between the LN46A650 and LN46B650 are that the B650 is the new model for 2009, offers a dynamic contrast of 100,000:1, and has an updated bezel.

I'm guessing you meant the UN46B6000. This particular model offers LED lighting, where as the LN46A650 and B650 offers a back lighting unit that is not LED.

I hope this has answered your questions :)

Hi there, thanks for the question. If you purchased the LN46A650 within the US, then it will only decode an NTSC signal. The only way that I think you will be able to view a PAL broadcast is through HDMI, but this may also have its own issues since no matter how you transmit it, a PAL signal will be sent through any cable at a different frequency then NTSC.

Question

Turn on Touch of Color?

Is Touch of Color passive or active? I purchased my TV in October 2008 and the picture quality is great, but I can not figure out how to turn on the Touch of Color feature. It appears that it is only illuminated by an external light source behind the TV. Is there an internal light that makes the Touch of Color plastic glow?

ToC is a passive color enhanced bezel, meaning that the bezel it self is transparent and tinted, in your TV's case, red. The brighter the background behind your TV is, the more vivid the color becomes. There is no on or off, ToC only refers to the touch of color we gave to the bezel.

As you stated, it will not work on any PAL signal. However, if you are using All US spec components, and you have the correct power converter, then you will be able to use the TV as a "Monitor" of sorts.

I'm sorry you are having this issue. If you head into the TV's menu while on the PC source, you can try to reset all the picture settings to default and see if that alleviates your issue. If not, please contact 800-SAMSUNG for service. They should be able to walk you through any issue resolution better then I can on here.

When I press the info button on the remote, it shows that the TV is running at 60hz. Is the LN46A650 a 60 or 120 hz unit?

That’s a great question. The processor on the Samsung 120Hz/240Hz units will always display at their respective Hz. Even though 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 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.

Hi there VIC11, thanks for the question! In order to safely use a US spec Samsung TV outside the United States, you will need to acquire a power converter to convert the voltage out of the wall socket to the US spec voltage.

Question

Annoying Message Block Appears Onscreen

Under the following conditions:
1. Connected: Samsung Crystal Surround AirTrack HW-C450
2. The LN46A650A1FXZA TV Speaker turned off

Here is the problem: When I adjust the volume level of the soundbar, the TV also picks up the volume signal and displays a very annoying "(i) Not Available" message block in the center of the TV screen. The Samsung Soundbar is picking up the signal as it should. The TV should not issue a message block in the middle of the TV which is blocking the viewing of the screen.

PLEASE: Issue a firmware update for the LN46A650A1FXZA so that when the TV speaker is turned off, the large message block saying "(i) Not Available" will not appear disruptively in the middle of the screen

The InfoLink features on the LN46A650 will offer News, Stocks and Weather options, and uses Yahoo! Service to facilitate the services.

The WIS08AB LinkStick is required to connect wirelessly.

The WIS08ABxx LinkSticks may be difficult to come by, but you might try www.samsungparts.com or check online to see if one can be located.

The WIS09ABGN LinkSticks for 2009 and 2010 televisions will not be compatible with the LN46A650.

Thanks for the question. Unfortunately, due to hardware limitations, there will not be a firmware update that will include 2009 features for 2008 and older TVs. Also, firmware updates usually are only performed when a "fix" has been written, and does not necessarily include feature unlocks.

Question

Why does my screen go black?

Whenever a scene comes on my screen that is mostly white (for example, a white screen with a product logo in the middle) the screen goes dark for approx. 5 seconds. Then is turns blue, the the picture comes back with the info block in the top right corner ( the block that shows the time and the 1080p setting). This seems to happen more and more frequently, only with the extremely bright white screen scenes.
