Questions & Answers for samsung PN58B860Y2F

Question

Analog audio output

Does this model have an analog audio output? I did see the digital optical out, but not the analog out, in the specs. Again if your cable provider is still sending analog out to your set, the analog audio out is important. Granted it is the third option over HD and Digital programming, but still needed with most cable companies at this time.

To expand on my previous answer. I plugged in a simple stereo head set (like from a Walkman) and I heard sound out of the headset. It looks like item #4 on the back of the TV is some form of analog output. At least enough to run a headset.

In the downloaded manual for the PN58B860, page 7, shows item #4 and further describes it on page 8 as:
"AUDIO OUT Audio outputs to external devices."
This is different than the digital output labeled as item #5.

It does NOT say what kind of "AUDIO OUT" it is. It might be a stero mini plug, like stereo headphones that could be adapted to two RCA type plugs.

From looking at the manual, it seems that the only audio output is through the optical output. There does not seem to be any analogue audio out.

Touch of Color on 860 series

My 860 series has a small blue lighted area, just below the Samsung logo, not all the way around the bezel. Is this normal?

Yes there is a blue light on the the base of the TV that can be set for on of these 4 settings: "Off", "in standby", "watching TV", or "always". My PN58B860 looks like you discribed in your question when the blue light is on.

As previously stated, the blue light has nothing to do with the ToC. ToC on my PN58B860 is some form of silver.

ToC is an accent color for the appropriately equipped models. ToC is not something you can turn on and it is not a light. Your bezel should have a a rose black ToC color around the bezel it self.

Question

(PN63B590T5FXZA) or ?

I'm deciding between the 58 PN58B860 and the 63 inch PN63B590T5FXZA, which has the better picture? I'm told bigger is not always better when it comes to Plasma televisions. My GF wants the 63 inch, but I want the 58 inch.

To be honest, the picture on the B860 will be better due to the 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio, the Ultra FilterBright Plus panel, the Samsung Crystal FHD Engine, Wide Color Enhancer 3, and Cinema Smooth. The Ultra Filterbright panel allows for the unit to achieve a higher contrast then the B550 and the panel also has enhanced anti-glare properties. So if you have a bright room or are in a heavily lit area, there is minimal glare. The Crystal FHD Engine also enhances the color and contrast of the unit while the Cinema Smooth feature helps to display your movies in a smoother fashion to where it more closely matches a true cinema experience. Other feature differences in the PNB860 that are not offered in the PNB590 include Inretnet@TV (allows for the display of internet content via widgets on the TV), Content Library (which houses many different interactive features such as a fitness assistant, a cook book, and interactive games), wireless DLNA for PC connectivity (allows you to display content directly from your PC), and USB 2.0 w/ movie playback (allows you to play movie files, MP3s, and photos from a usb drive that is directly connected to the TV).

The only difference between the B850 and the B860 is that the B860 has an added light decor on the bottom of the bezel and the B860 has Cinema Smooth, where as the B850 does not have either of these features.

Question

NTSC tuner

Does this model have the NTSC tuner. Mediacom is still providing analog programs and if your DVR is recording two programs, your only option is to go to cable and watch a program there. So the NTSC tuner is still of some value.

Thats actually a great idea. Although on the spec sheet it does not list NTSC as a tuner, the set is NTSC capable. Basically the decoding is done through the available tuners (ATSC/QAM), so you can have cable straight from the jack into the TV and your DVR on, or lets say, HDMI and be able to watch one while the other records.

Question

Why have many reported a loud buzz?

This display performs so much better than my 58" A650 model and I love the picture.
One thing that is keeping me from purchasing an 860 is that I have read many complaints about loud buzzing coming from the display.
This issue also plagued many Elite Pioneer models in the last 2 years.
It's so loud in fact many have returned the 860 for a different brand.
Has this issue been resolved?
Can I purchase in confidence that I will have no issue.

The buzzing sound your plasma TV makes is normal. It's caused by the electrical charges that are used to create the images on the screen. The buzzing, however, should not be so loud that you can hear it when the volume on the TV is set at normal levels.

If your Plasma TV is buzzing loudly, follow these steps:

1. Set the volume of the TV to the setting you normally use.
2. Stand at least 15 feet away. If you do not hear the buzz, your Plasma TV is working normally.
3. If you continue to hear a loud buzz when you are 15 feet from the TV, return to the TV and see if any cables are resting against the metal back cover of the TV. If cables are resting against the back panel, reposition them so that they do not rest against the back panel and see if that reduces the buzzing.
4. If repositioning the cables does not reduce the buzzing, your Plasma TV needs service.

Important: Plasma TVs do not operate properly at approximately 6500 feet (1950 meters) or above. If you attempt to operate a Plasma TV above or near that altitude, it will buzz very loudly. Unfortunately, there is no way to stop the buzzing at that altitude. However, the loud buzzing should stop when you operate the TV below 6500 feet.

At 4600 feet, your plasma should be fine. If you search online, you will find that Plasmas are actually just fine up to an altitude of about 7000-8000 feet. Beyond that, you will want to look for Plasmas that are "High Altitude" rated.

With the LED UN55B8000 Series TV, the LED TV Remote will turn "On" and "Off" both the Yamaha VX565 Series Receiver and the LED TV when the LED TV Remote is pressed "on" or "off"; with the PN58B860 when I turn "On" the Plasma TV with the TV Remote the Yamaha VX565 Series Receiver does not turn "On", but the Tv Remote will turn both TV and Receiver "Off" when the remote is pressed "Off". Both TV's are connected the same way. HDMI from the Cablebox to the TV (HDMI Input1) and Digital Audio to the Recevier and an HDMI cable from the Samsung P1600 Ble-Ray to the Yamaha VX565 Series Receiver and an HDMI from the Yamaha VX565 Series Receiver to the HDMI Input2 of the TV.

If you head into the units Anynet+ option in the TV's menu, you should be able to set the options on your Yamaha receiver to turn on when the TV turns on. All the HDMI-CEC codes should be the same across all the units, so this is the only option I can think of that would help you in your situation.

Although officially, none of the Samsung Plasmas suffer from burn-in, I would still suggest you follow some simple steps to ensure the long life of your unit. Make sure that your anti-burn-in features, such as the pixelshift and scrolling functions, are active and working properly. Also make sure that you do not leave a static image on the screen for too long. As for a static logo, if the logo is translucent, it shouldn't be that much of an issue, but again, make sure you have the burn-in protection features on.

If you do not connect a Ethernet cable via the LAN connection or connect the wireless adaptor via the USB connection, you will not be able to stream footage from your PC or laptop to the TV.

However, if you connect the PC or Laptop via the VGA, HDMI or HDMI/DVI connection, you could view the computer screen on the TV and browse the internet using the PC but viewing it on the TV.

Great question. Although I will not be able to list a detailed comparison between the two sets due to space and format limitations, I can give you a quick rundown. The PN58B860 is a Plasma TV with options like internet@TV, Cinema Smooth, and Medi@2.0. The A950 series is a last generation LED back lit TV that is no longer being produced and is being replaced by this years B8500 series Samsung LED TV. They are both two very different panel technologies and can not accurately be compared since choosing a panel technology to live with really is all about personal preference.

As a matter of fact, all Samsung Plasma TVs offer the Pixel Shift technology, which slightly adjusts the pixels on screen to prevent burn-in.
This shift is actually unnoticeable and can be set wither stronger or weaker (by adjusting the amount of pixels that are shifted).

Unfortunately there is not a headphone jack; however you can still connect headphones to this unit. In order to hear out of headphones, you would need to connect the headphones via the "Audio out" 3.5mm output between the two usb ports. Please note, this is not a headphone jack, but an analogue output that is designed to connect to a receiver. Even then, since the audio outputs on this unit are a fixed pass through type of connection, you would need some sort of intermediary device to control the volume, since the TV does not have control of the volume coming out of the analogue and digital audio outputs.
