Products available for purchase on BestBuy.com are intended for use within the United States only. This particular TV (SKU #8812414) requires an AC110-120V 60Hz electrical connection and includes an ATSC (North American, digital) tuner.

Question

what model do you sell that will let you use headphones without cutting the sound from the tv speakers?

I want to buy a new TV that will allow me to use headphones and watch TV while other people can watch and listen at a different sound level. My older Sony 32inch model allows me to do this but it is developing picture problems and I would like to replace it with a new one preferably a Samsung. The 39 inch model I have been looking at apparently does not do this.

Hi Ken,

I had the SAME issue! I just purchased a Samsung Model: UN39FH5000FXZA and use it with a JBL headset. It's PERFECT! I can have my TV volume at the level I want it, and my mom uses the headset at the volume she needs it at! Awesome solution!!! I hope this helps you!

Question

multiple ?s - DVI input

is there a DVI input? the Best Buy specs area says no. but another question here was answered that a DVI input could be used.
does the TV have HDCP technology built in? i thought the cable boxes and DVD players did that. wouldn't it be redundant then? and again, another question got an answer about an HDCP handshake--what is that? basically, would i be able to watch some older VHS tapes (and some older DVDs maybe?) using my pretty-old VHS/DVD player, or would the TV itself not let me if there's old CP tech on them? weird question, i know, but i've had some older movies that i couldn't play and others play fine and i'm just still trying to figure out what's up.

and the "additional audio port" (from another question's answer)--what is it? answers here say there is no place to plug in a headphone set, but there is something next to the optical/digital audio out in the close-up pic.

thank you.

colbey,

There are lots of great questions here.

1. DVI can connect to an HDMI with an adapter (or DVI-to-HD cable). However, the audio source for the DVI device will be separate, since DVI only carries the HD picture, and not audio.

2. HDCP is High Definition Copy Protection, and our models have it. The "HDCP handshake" is a connection between two HD devices that give each other permission to transmit a signal. If one side is not HDCP compliant (or it has been disabled), the picture or audio may not be sent. All legitimate cable/satellite boxes, Blu-Ray players and other devices will work just fine.

3. VHS or DVD players, if it has an HDMI port, would work just fine. VHS with component or composite would not have the "handshake" at all, so the signal would just pass through.

4. Headphone jack have a "variable" volume control, which means there is an amplifier that can raise or lower the volume. The audio output is a similar port (physically), but the signal is "fixed", and designed to work at a standard level or audio bars, receivers or amplifiers. No volume control changes on a "fixed" port, only variable ports.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung products. If we can help further, please reach out and let us know how.

The Dimensions (W x H x D) would be: 35.2 X 20.9 X 3.6 inches with "panel only".

For the Dimensions with the base, it would be: 35.2 X 23.2 X 8.9 inches

The smart hub itself does not have a charge. If you use the Netflix or Hulu Plus, the standard membership charges apply. Some other applications have fees, but you can pick and choose what you want to use.

The TV speakers are not automatically shut off. Usually in the Audio Menu, there is an option for "External" or "Internal" speakers. If you'd like to send your audio to a receiver or Home Theater system, it's recommended to use the "External" option.

If the television has a headphone jack, marked with the headphone logo, then the audio would be automatically cut. That said, we don't offer a 39" model with a headphone jack, so the prior method would be advised.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung televisions.

Any one of them are good choices.

The entry level model is the BD-F5100. It plays Blu-Rays, DVDs and Audio CDs and easily hooks up to your UN39FH5000 with a single HDMI cable.

It will do Netflix Pandora and YouTube, but you need to be wired for that with Ethernet.

If he has wireless Internet and a Netflix account, you might upgrade to the BD-E5400, which has built-in Wi-Fi.

Simple, easy to connect, and once connected, should be pretty maintenance free.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung Blu-Ray players, and here's to keeping it simple!

This model is fairly typical in weight: 26.5 lbs. It also depends on the type of television; a plasma will be much heavier than an LED TV.

This can vary based on the size of your room, the color of the room, and even the amount of ambient light during prime viewing hours.

The "Dynamic" settings are usually for very brightly lit areas, where control of light is difficult. The "Movie" setting will provide a darker picture for dark-room applications. You can use any of the preset options, and then tailor the settings to your taste.

If you'd rather, Best Buy does offer a calibration service that will give you a professionally tuned picture, and you can get more information on that from Best Buy's Geek Squad Agents.
