How can a TV have both 120 & 240 Hz Refresh rate?

I don't understand the Hz on this TV and how do you change between the two and why would you want to change to a lower Hz?

If the unit only has 120Hz refresh rate then why does the web page show that the unit has both. If you look under the specifications tab it shows both the 12Hz/240Hz.

Using DLNA, you will be able to connect to your DLNA capable PC and access media files from it. Also using infolink, you have access to RSS feeds that allows you to display these RSS feeds on the display in widget form.

You will want to head into the unit's menu. Then into the Picture sub-menu, where you will find the Picture Options tab. Click into that and you will see an adjustment called "Size". This adjustment will give you options for the size of the image on the screen.

Question

With the factory settings, there is a lot of light bleeding with dark backgrounds, is this normal?

I've tried altering the backlight setting, but it makes the picture quite dull. The factory default has the backlight setting to max (10), but when showing dark backgrounds (i.e. night scenes), the background is very blotchy and uneven.

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.

Question

Does the UN55B6000 work if I move to Europe next year?

Hi, I am going to buy a new TV, but might be moving to Europe late 2010 or 2011, so I want to buy something that works in Europe as well.
Does this model work with 220Volt 50Hz?
Alternatively does it work with 110Volt 50Hz (I can buy a step down converter)?
If not, which models work with 220Volt 50Hz or 110Volt 50Hz?

That's a trick question! The Samsung LED TVs are actually LCD panels with LED back lighting. That being said, both the Samsung LED TVs and LCD TVs have the same exact viewing angle of 178 degrees.

I'm sorry you are having an issue with your device. The connector you are using seems to be the proper connector (a Y cable with the 3.5mm jack on one and and the red/white RCAs on the other end). I would suggest making sure that the 3.5mm jack is for use with home theater systems, since one for any other use my have differing contacts on the connector that may not be compatible with the TV. Also try turning off the unit's external speakers, that may cause the connection to activate.
If you continue to suffer from this issue, please create a service request at:

I feel that this screen is close to being in between, leaning a little towards the shiny side. I have 2 walls of all windows in my TV, but do not notice the reflections like I did with my previous plasma TV, which had a very shiny screen. I can see bright objects such as sun reflections or headlights, but do not see any other reflections when watching the TV.

How do you loop or indefinitely repeat media from a USB drive or the file in the LED TV?

We have a 1080 LED HDTV on our job and have slide show movies to display at events which are stored on a USB drive or downloaded into the LED TV's hard drive. We would like the movie to loop or repeat indefinitely through the evening from beginning to end, but it doesn't see to do that when we play it from the USB drive or from the memory.

Although the B6000 can connect to the internet to receive internet content via Infolink (Infolink allows you to view certain RSS feeds which give you access to up-to-the-minute weather, news, sports and stocks information from the internet on your TV), it does not have DLNA functionality. For a unit that does offer DLNA, please take a look at the B7000 and higher models.

Calibration is not really necessary, but it really is up to you whether you want it calibrated or not. You can perform a low level calibration your self by just setting the picture settings the way you want them, or you can have it professionally calibrated. Again, its up to you.
