I am also annoyed - feel like Samsung don't care much about their customers once they are a couple of years down the line. My next TV will be a Sony.I have lost functionality of what I thought was smart hub issues but now realise was on tv functions which I'm annoyed about does anyone know if Samsung are going to replace on tv?
Can someone help me with a couple of sound questions?
1. How do I set the TV up so that I can get the 5.1 audio out when I watch thru the Netflix app?
2. I have a scart connector plugged into the scart socket, then into one of my standard stereo inputs on my amp. Works fine watching off-air stuff thru the tuner but I cannot get audio if I am watching say iPlayer app. Or if I change the Source, I still get the tuner sound thru the amp but the source's correct audio comes thru the TV speakers. What's the deal?
Interesting - I didn't know that. I have a rather older 5.1 amp but I seem to have solved the issue now. I have a clever little box that accepts both 5.1 via optical and coax in and then sends it back out via 6 discreet cables to the amp (which has no optical in). I discovered that I can go from the Samsung's optical out to the Optical in on my 'clever box' which then works out the signal is coming from the TV and not the DVD player's coax feed and forwards that to the amp.
I have had this set from release and not experienced this (or any other) problem. Still the fastest set in my house to settle down.Has anyone experienced a problem on their UE46F7000 whereby once the tv is plugged into the mains the ‘Smart TV’ logo appears on screen as it would normally when booting up out of standby then it makes that ‘click’ sound as though you’ve pressed the standby button on the remote and the red standby light illuminates. The tv continues to cycle through the above with no tv channel picture being displayed until unplugged at the mains.
The set is just a few months out of its 5-year warranty. Tried googling the fault but can’t find anything about this model specifically. Other older Samsung models that exhibited a similar problem seem to have been due to faulty capacitors that required a circuit board to be replaced.
Unless this is a relatively cheap repair it will probably get replaced.

I don't know but if it's possible at all that stuff is usually in the service menu. A quick Google search will bring up a few YouTube videos telling you how to access the service menus of various models of Samsung TV's. You may have to try a few until you find the one for yours.Is there a way of displaying how many hours one of these F7000/F8000 TVs has been on for, does anyone know?
