SWA-4000 doesn't adquire signal of HT-TX500 Home Theather

I have a Swa-4000 and i'm trying to connect it to a ht-tx500 home theather, but the signal light of the wireless module flashes for a while and then goes to stand by. I've already tried the way described in the manual but without any effect.

    I have the same problem! Turn off main unit, press 0-1-3-5 on remote then press the button on the wireless unit. Link flashes for several seconds then goes back to standby. Rear unit says REAR CHK

    Yes, I have the same problem. Ive tried turning off all other wireless devices in the house as suggested by Samsung Support. I even returned the first SWA-4000 in replacement for another and still find the blue light flashing several times and cant pick up the transmitter. Samsung support couldnt even suggest anything apart from they have the SWA-3000 which works fine. Not much of a sales pitch. Any suggestions?

I was having poor audio from the back speakers and didn't even know it; intermittently I'd hear them jump in volume, so myself being a little adventurous, decided to push the ID set button on the back, totally losing my ilnk... after digging and playing, I figured it out:
1.) Turn off the Head (main) Unit 2.) Power on the wireless receiver, being sure it is away from routers, other BT devices, etc. 3.) Push the "ID Set" button on the back of the wireless device and hold it until the lights on its front panel flash. 4.) Point the system's remote control at the Head Unit and punch in 0135.  Its light should turn from red to blue. 5.) Perform step 3 again. 6.) Power on the head unit.
Should link up.
Might be some redundancy there, but it works :)
Also I found that after a few cycles It seemed to work better (perhaps cycled to a better channel?)

Eteindre le module sans fil SWA-4000.
Eteindre le Home cinéma.
Faire un reset, par appui sur le " id set" au dos du module sans fil c'est à dire SWA-4000.
Allumez et cela devrait fonctionner.
C'est comme ça que moi j'ai réussi avec mon home cinema

Can i buy a 3d blue ray samsung dvd player and plug my HT-TZ315 unit speakers to it?

No. A stand-alone 3d player will not have an amp in it to power the speakers. You would be better off purchasing a new 3d surround system.

I'm having problems getting my swa-4000 system to work tried the code and holding down the reset button i have an ht-x715t system and the tx card is in right any idea's thanks

With the home theater system off, press the 0-1-3-5 buttons in that order on the home theater's remote control.

Power on the home theater system.

With the wireless module on, press the [ID SET] button on the back of the wireless module for five seconds.

If your home theater continues to display rear check after you have tried the steps above, call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864). Have your model number and serial number on hand to set up service.

Hope this helps!

Just connected the SWA-4000 wireless amplified to my samsung ht-z310 - the readout on the display is "Rear Chk" there is no sound from the rear speakers- any help is appreciated

swa-4000 wireless module isn't compatible with htz310. You need to buy Samsung's swa-3000 to work with your htz310. I had the same problem. It tells you in your owners manual under conectivity where it explains about hooking up a wireless module(pg.55-60). I hope this helps.

Samsung SWA-4000 Wireless connection problem - Not connecting with main unit

I have had the same problem with the wireless unit and thought the same, it didn't work. The way to fix this is simple. You need to do the 0, 1, 3, 5 on the remote and turn on the home theatre system on the main switch on the front panel (as I was doing this on the remote, and it was failing). The blue light should then stay illuminated. If not just switch the main on/off button again, and it shoud work.
