Samsung HT-WP38 System - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


i've had a similar problem where the fan stopped moving and the system gave the usual "protect" error. i think the IC's burned out on the amp board since the error was no longer there when i unplugged it. i ordered a new board off ebey for $25 shipped. make sure this is the problem by unplugging both the power and data cables from the amp circuit (the board with the big heatsink) and starting it. if it says starts normally then the problem is the amp circuit

I assume "PROT" means some sort of protection mode. I would check to see if any of your speaker wires are crossed at the speakers or the receiver. If not you may have shorted something internal.

Does it have a fan in the back? Is it spinning? If it does have a fan that is not spinning, you may be able to replace it. Another possibility is a short in the speaker wiring, check the wires to make sure that a strand or wire is not contacting another wire...

Our started doing the same thing about a week after the warranty ran out. It has to do with the alignment of the discs being loaded. here's a work-around that works for us:
Open the tray
Choose which disc you are going to watch and use the Change Disc button to push the selected disc to the back (ie, if you want to view Disc 1, discs 3 and 4 will be visible in the tray).
Look down the center holes of discs 3 and 4... manually move your tray left-or-right to align the holes with the tray.
Push the Direct Play button on the top right of the unit for your disc of choice (Disc 1 using the example above).

hope that helps... I've searched for a while and played around with the unit (with and without the cover on) trying to figure out a way to re-align the tray, but no luck.

It is likely that the optical fiber inside the cable is broken, it is really sensible and gets damaged easily. I'd try changing the cable before even opening the home theater.

You can open the dvd and try to clean it manualy.open the dvd so you can see the lazer.take a normal earbud and wet it with normal methylated spirits and clean the lazer gently with that.the lazer cleaners hardly ever work 100%.Just remember not to push to hard on the lazer or you will brake it.gently clean and wait for lazer to dry and try again.

Hi Bill, your Samsung TV, has digital audio output by fiber optic, to be able to connect powered speakers, they must have that type of input
You can connect this output to an amplifier with Digital Fiber Optic input and thus have the audio in the amplifier speakers
Another option is to use a converter of Digital Audio input (Optical Fiber or Coax) and Audio output by RCA
I send you the link of the D / A converter
I hope you can listen to your TV by external speakers
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Bill, tu TV Samsung, tiene salida de audio digital por Fibra ?ptica, para poder conectar parlantes potenciados, estos deber?n contar con ese tipo de entrada
Puedes conectar esta salida a un amplificador con entrada Digital de Fibra ?ptica y as? tener el audio en los parlantes del amplificador
Otra opci?n es utilizar un conversor de entrada de Audio Digital(Fibra ?ptica o Coaxil) y salida de Audio por RCA
Te envi? el link del conversor D/A
Espero puedas escuchar tu TV por los parlantes externos
Saludos Franco Dosil

Visit the Samsung consumer site as they have free online manuals for most of their products.

OR Google the model number with "manual" to try to locate one.

The 40" version of the Samsung 5200 series 5, UN40J5200AF, does have a 3.5 mm (mini) headphone/speaker audio out jack. See the specifications here, http://www.samsung.com/ca/support/model/UN40J5200AFXZC/ ; just expand the section for More Specifications. This is also shown on page 6 of the e-Manual (expand the Manuals section). The direct link to the e-Manual is currently http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201504/20150417115111056/ENG-US_NMATSCJ-1.104-0410.pdf , according to my history.

I hope this helps. If you have a different TV in the series, check the specifications at Samsung's support site. There may be variations in the input/output options on the other TVs.

If you can download the software from Samsung website, put it on a flash drive. Plug into the computer. Run the program. OR, you may be able to download and install the software from Samsung website directly. Go here for more information:

This TV does not have a headphone jack. It only has a optical digital audio output, Toslink. To connect this to most headphones, you'll need a digital to analog audio converter. You'll need to provide the cables (optical digital audio, RCA (M/M) to 3.5 mm (F) adapter). For some headphones, you can use just RCA audio cables or RCA (M/M) to 3.5 mm (M) audio cable. Here is one converter: https://www.amazon.com/Digital-Optical-Analog-audio-converter/dp/B004C4WPXA .

The documentation for the LN40B500P3FXZA is available here: https://www.samsung.com/ca/support/model/LN40B500P3FXZA/ . See page 4 of the User Guide for the back panel connections. The current link to this guide is http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=UNI_CA&CttFileID=2430065&CDCttType=UM&ModelType=N&ModelName=LN40B500P3F&VPath=UM/201104/20110426143440007/BN68-01883Q-00L03-110426.pdf&OriginYN=N .

I wish I had better news for you. I hope this helps.
