Question about Samsung HT-X50 System

Fan check issue

Recently the power went out in our house causing our 7 month old Samsung HT-X50 DVD home theater system to turn off. When the power returned, the fan on the DVD player made a loud noise. After a few minutes, 'Fan Check' was blinking on the DVD screen. Soon after, the DVD player turned itself off. We have turned the system on and off many time since with the same series of events occurring. Any ideas on what is causing this?

Re: fan check issue

As I am siting here with the case open. I am checking the heatsinks. They are all warm to the touch or cool except for this one. The heatsink near the volume knob, between the 2 green capacitors and a yellow power object and almost touching the dvd tray is extremely hot to the touch. It actually burned me. I have a window fan sitting on top of the whole unit with the lid off. No shutdowns yet! My planned cure is to either cut a square out of the side or on the top of the lid and mount a small computer fan there to blow air in or out(once I decide the best route for air to ventelate). Let me know if you all experince this very hot heatsink. This could be a 5 dollar cure to the problem. Does anyone know of a constant power source on the motherboard for a fan? The original fan blows very little air. Its quite pathetic.

Thanks and goodluck,

Samsung HT-X50. I just installed a new 50" plasma TV and cabled the digital out to the Samsung HT-X50 digital in via an optical cable. The TV audio is now heard through the HT-X50 speakers but only...

Look into the TV's audio controls. If it was my setup, I'd NOT send audio through the TV to the hifi, nor video through the hifi to the TV. Additional hops and interconnects cause problems even though they're theoretically transparent.

Need Vizio TV code for my Samsung HT-X50 home theater remote!

Mine is 5. Press the TV button and let it go. When it quits glowing press the power button and hold it down. Then press a number (1-86) on the keypad while holding the power button down. If the TV turns off, you are done. Press the power button again and the tv should come on. If it does not work. Release the power button for a second and then repeat with a different number until the tv turns off.

Hi, I have Samsung HT-X50 connected with SWA-4000. It was working fine, then for somereason I had to remove and reinsert Tx card. After doing that SWA-4000 is not connecting to HT-X50. Blue light blinks...

You have to reset the connection:

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!

Remote issue

Loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused of your remote to malfunction.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. Try to resolder the solder joint so it works normal again..
