Question about Samsung HT-X40 System
I have my Samsung HT-X40 connected to a Samsung 32" LCD TV via an HDMI cable. While using the HT-X40 to play DVDs, the screen will periodically go completely black. The sound remains present, but I loose the entire picture. If I turn the TV off and then on again, the picture will come back. I have replaced the HDMI cable, the problem is less frequent, but it still happens.
I'm facing the same problem, but I'm working with Samsung about it. I won't settle for a product that doesn't work. Mine goes blank in 1080i and 720p. Samsung tried to repair it once, and it still goes blank. I'm working on getting a new model from Samsung or will send it back for repair over and over until I get something that works. Make Samsung take care of their faulty product.

I bought a X40 system too from Samsung and face the blank screen with voice issue. However, my mode was 720p right from the start.
The solution from "runtowin" says that we need to download the HT-X40/XAA Firmware. When I was on the Samsung site I noticed that there were many such updates for XAA, XAC, etc.
My box says that my system is a Samsung HT-X40 hometheater. In this case which update do I use?

Switch from 1080i to either 420p or 720p (720p is actually better)
there is also a downloadable program from samsung.com
search for ht-x40 downloads
8. home theater HT-X40T/XAA Firmware
this will upgrade the dvd player
