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.

Question

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.

Hi there scott, at this time we do not offer any TVs with cablecard connectivity on the consumer level TVs at this time. However, keep checking back on Samsung.com for any new models that may have updated connectivity options.

I hope this helped you out :)

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.

Well, they cant compare since they are two very different technologies. However the Samsung Plasma line does have a native refresh rate of 600Hz, while the highest for LCD is 240Hz. Now this doesn't mean that the Plasma will upconvert to 600Hz, it just means it can handles refresh rates of up to 600Hz. The LCDs can upconvert to 240Hz though, but that's as high as it goes.

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.

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.

Please help!

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).

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.
