Samsung HT-TX72 Making noise after 2 months

After about 2 months of perfect operation, the Receiver started making this buzzing noise. If I turn off the unit, and turn it back on it goes away for about a day. I looked for a firmware update and followed the instructions. I don't believe the update was a new one.

Can I take just the unit back to Best Buy without taking the speakers back to exchange it or do I have to ship it to Samsung?

What do I do!?

    Same problem. Buzzing noise comes on when it first comes on. Have to power off/on a few times and it goes away. Becoming more frequent. Audio cuts out from time to time as well.

    I am having the same problem, after the same amount of time, except I have to turn in on/off about 15 times before it stops!

The problem is the fan in the back of the receiver. A number of people have had this same problem. Somehow the fan rubs on itself when it is at the wrong angle. This also happens if the bearings give out.

You can very easily remove the top of the receiver. There's 2 screws on the sides and 4 on the back. The fan is held in by 2 screws. It is a 50mm 12V fan that you can probably get shipped to you for under $10. I have found some online for just a dollar. Type 50mm fan into google and buy one that is 12V (0.14A).

Or you can do what I did and battle with customer service for hours and hours. You most likely will have to pay the $25 to ship it to be serviced or you will be transferred to their parts retailer who tries to sell you one for $45. Eventually, if you are persistent, you might ask for the surpervisor's supervisor and with a steady tone manage to get the Samsung Service number (888.685.1349) where the friendly service agent will recognize your struggle and justly send you a fan for free or next to nothing.

Good luck!

Check with BB about hte procedure, but this is definately covered under warranty. It sounds like there is a defective capacitor in the audio path or in the power supply. This is a simple fix once hte problem part is located. Please note when you take this in for repair that the problem is intermittant and requires that the unit be run for an extended period of time. This will prevent the servicer from making a quick judgement and not finding the problem. (Been there, done that...). Also, typically they should only need the failing component, not the entire system. Depending upon where you are located, there may be "local" authorized service centers for this unit.
Keep us posted.

Need help setting up samsung Ht-tx 72 dvd home theater system jus to get sound to come from tv thru the surround sound speakers


Look in the manual...

http://www.retrevo.com/support/Samsung-HT-TX72-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/2771dj593/t/2/

The TV >>receives<< Video and Audio from the Samsung. Page 19.

The unidentified TV with its unknown audio capabilites has a manual somewhere, too.

How many TV's are actual audio sources?

If the TV is actually a root source of programming (say, through its own antenna) you can run cables from it to the Samsung as you would any other audio source. If the audio really comes fro ma Cable Box THAT is where the best TV-related audio will come from.

My Samsung HT-AS720ST (AV-R720) surround sound receiver started making crackling noises in the front right speaker. I've changed the speaker and cable, but still the same results. Is there any hope for...


The problem is caused by the PULSUS PS9829B digital audio processor. We ordered it in from a Samsung authorized service centre.
Problem is now solved. Unit works perfectly. If you have never tried working with surface-mount ICs I would skip it if I were you. This IC has over 100 pins on it. However the part is available from Samsung. Print this comment and take it to your locat service centre along with your receiver. They should be able to repair the board unless they are wussies and cannot do surface-mount work.

UNIT WON'T TURN ON.


These are also used in microwave ovens so most hardware stores will have them on hand.
Buy two; if the first one blows, don't install the second until you check back here; this will mean you will need some further investigation. Fuses do blow because of metal fatigue (expanding and contracting with on/off cycles) but if the second one blows, the fuse is protecting against larger problems such as a failed output module.

Its almost like new and hardly used, why is it doing this?There is no error message, it just shuts off. I've tried unplugging it for a day, taking out all my wires and reconnecting them perfectly, and it still does this robert

I have a samsung ht-tx75 and it keeps shutting down every 10 minutes saying protection.the fan is working


Protection is very likely caused by an over heat condition, even with the fan working if the receiver is in a very enclosed place that warms up and is not ventilated it will cause the problem. The solution is to provide more ventilation so that the receiver can cool itself properly.

How do I hook up a ps2 so it will play in the surround sound for a samsung ht tx72


Your HT is only capable of inputting an external audio signal, either via analog RCA (red/white) or via an digital optical cable. The video of your PS2 will then be connected directly to the TV.
