How to remove unused AV1 from source list

by DV2 / January 20, 2010 8:46 AM PST

I recently retired an old DVD player that connected to my LN46a630 via AV1. There is now nothing plugged into AV1 yet it still shows in the list of available inputs. I find that inconsistent because other inputs like HDMI go away when not plugged in. I can't find anything mention of how to remove a source from the input list. Am I stuck with it forever?

DV2,

I'm not sure why that would happen; there's no particular rhyme or reason for it to be on. The tuner will be an 'always on' connection, but typically, that's the only one that is always on.

If you don't mind losing your picture settings, you might try holding down the EXIT button on the remote for 12-15 seconds until you get a "RESET?" prompt - that may clear up the issue, but I'd have no way of knowing if that master reset will be a guaranteed fix.

HD_Tech,

Well I gave it a shot and AV1 is still there, but it did give me something to do tonight (put back my original settings :-). Thanks anyhow.

DV2,

Ouch. Sorry about the extra work.

If you're still under warranty, you might call 800-SAMSUNG to troubleshoot further. I can't explain why it would still be there.
