Question about Samsung HT-Q80 System

3 Answers

The display on the front of my HT-Q80 is not working?

My two year old was playing near my receiver and the remote controls and now the front display doesn't work. Sometimes it will be a blank screen and other times every possible light turns on. So when I change functions it won't display anything. The functions work, it's just that I can't see anything displayed so I have to just blindly hit function until I get to where I want it. Please help.

Send it in for repair. My wife had the same problem as a couple of others (static discharge when she touched the unit-then all display lights were on all of the time. All of the functions still worked-you couldn't tell what you were looking at.
Cost me $50 to send it in the way they wanted it pcked. They fixed it for free. Happened right after the 3rd year warranty I got from Sam'as expired. Works now!

Samsung HT-A100 Home Cinema system plays cd only with tv on!

You need to put away the remote for your TV and use only the remote for your HT system. Your HT remote should work on your TV by default. Your Samsung HT remote should have a TV button and a DVD/Receiver button (or HT button). When using only the TV, press the TV button and then use it for just the TV and when using the HT system, press the DVD/Receiver button and then you can use the HT system.
If for some reason your TV is not set on the Samsung HT remote by default, your HT users manual should have a list of codes that you can use to program your HT remote. Hope that helps you. Gary

Samsung HT-THX25

I guess you connected your TV set to THX25 through the AUX input jacks. If yes, then try to set the sound system to 5.1, not for STEREO (default) setting.
This should solve your problem (it sure solved mine). If the sound received from your TV set is not stereo, then you'll hear only mono.

Child lock?

To turn on the dealer lock function: Turn the DVD player on. Press the Stop button on the front panel and the Power button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds. Note: When the dealer lock function is active, DEALER LOCK ON or DEALER LOCK OFF scrolls on the FLT display. this is from samsung's site
