Samsung Series 4 & 6 - Power ON and OFF Noise

by techhelpneeded / October 8, 2008 11:04 PM PDT

I have a 32" Series 4 and a 46" Series 6. I love both tvs for picture quality and HD capabilities. Yet, I am disturbed by a feature both TVs have that I can't figure out how to disable.

When powering up and powering the TVs off, they make a weird noise. Does anyone out there know how to disable this feature. I can't find anything in the tv options or the manual. Am I stuck with annoying feature?

Thanks for any help!

Power Melody
by Samsung_HD_Tech Samsung staff / October 10, 2008 9:21 AM PDT

The melody that plays as you turn the televisions on and off are a design feature. Some people like it, and some don't.

The good news, of course, is that you can turn it off if you prefer to do so. The instructions are available on Page 60 of the users manual (for the 650), but for your convenience, I'll list out the instructions here.

Using your remote,

MENU > SETUP > External Settings > Melody > toggle Off, Low, Med or High

Turning off the Melody will disable that noise when you turn your television on and off.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and we appreciate your support of Samsung products.

On off music

I think it's cool! The music plays as my Samsung light fades to black! The light bar can be disabled also in the menu.

Both the sound and light effect can be toggled to user preferences.

Thank you very much for the help. I think the sounds are cool but realized when my husband was watching TV in bed while I fell asleep, the sound woke me up when he turns the TV off. After the third time, I knew I needed to find out how to turn it off.

Thanks everyone!!

Solution for 450 Series TV's - Power ON and OFF Noise
by ozrah / January 8, 2010 2:18 PM PST

Thanks for heads up on this problem - the sound was driving me nuts, however just a slight change to the solution to the 650, as the 450 series menu is just a little different, and having turned it off, wanted to share the solution for 450 series owners.

The option can be found under MENU>SETUP>Melody>Off.

Thanks for those who have contributed to this solution/discussion.
