I turned on my HT-X50 system and found that my display shows all the icons and I can't figure out how to clear them. It shows all icons and 5 shaded box's. How do I get rid of this, I don't want to have to take it back.

Re: The display shows all the icons of the sytem and wont...

$38 part from Sears PartsDirect took about 30 mins to install.  Part # AH92-02673A Ay pcb-front.  There are actually 2 boards to this setup, I went ahead and replaced both but the power button side of the board has some wiring that requires you to remove the disc changer which is only 4 screws and 2 screws for the piece that holds the disc above the reader.
I couldn't find an easy way to get the knob off on the front it required me to force it, nothing borke but your replacing the board anyways..

Re: The display shows all the icons of the sytem and wont...

I had this problem when I went to touch the stop button on the front panel I, unknowingly, static sparked the display, metal front panel?, and it went dead blank. I spoke with Samsung and went through their suggestions. I turned it off and back on and all characters lit on the display. I sent it for repair and got it fixed. I did the same thing again, static spark, when pressing a button on the front panel after getting outta the recliner. Sent it for repair the second time. Got the unit back again. Decided to put some clear tape on the metal front panel, maybe insulate it from the static discharge? About a month later I got up from the recliner and pressed a button on the front and blanked out the display AGAIN, and turned it back on and ALL CHARACTER LIT AGAIN FOR THE 3RD TIME! I have been using it with all characters lit but I've had enough. I removed the system and went back to my old surround sytem for now. I have a Samsung 54" TV that never had a problem, not to mention all the other Electrionic equipment I have next to this unit that never had a static discharge problem or any other display or functioning problem. I think this unit does not have proper grounding to the front metal panel to properly ground the static discharge when touched rather than send the High Voltage discharge through the display circuit causing this malfunction. Good luck.

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.

The display is damaged. This is how this series dies. In some cases the receiver still works except you can't see the display. Samsung service center can repair it, nobody else.

Picture HT-X50

This problem to the system e.g; ( PAL,SECAM,NTSC....etc)
First check that you tv should be multi-system (not too old model) if it has supported system then turn on the required system manually.
Secondly Check the settings of your Home theater system and change the system accordingly.

Do you smell anything burning. This happened to me and I cut it back on. It stayed on for 30 secs or so and did the same thing. After doing this 2-3 times, I smelled a burning. Being a member of the Fire Dept, I didn't want to see my buddy's coming to the house, so I unplugged it. The next day, I took it apart and there was a burnt resistor or something under neath the fan. I took it back and they gave me a new receiver, but I'm expecting the same with this one.
