LA40b650 firmware in NZ

by bruten58 / November 25, 2009 2:55 PM PST

For months now the NZ support webpage for the Samsung Series 6, 40" LCD (LA40B650) has been displaying the latest firmware version as 1007.0. Today, I noticed it had changed to 2001.1. Great, version 2 I thought. Alas, when I installed it, I see my firmware version has dropped to 1006. On further investigation, the unzipped files are dated 8th May, 2009, instead of 28th May 2009. I can always reapply the previous firmware version, but wanted to check what the story is. A mistake when the website was updated maybe? Oh, and the Aus website is also displaying the same "new" version. Any ideas?

Unfortunately, I don't have any contact with Samsung NZ/Australia. I'll send this to someone I think can address this, but for the moment, I don't have any further information.

Latest firmware for LA40B650

I am glad I read this thread on the referenced subject. I have just bought this TV and have downloaded the latest firmware (2001.1) from the Samsung NZ site but have not installed it yet. I will wait and see what futher responses there are from this thread.

FYI, the current software version on my TV is shown as 2000/01/01_001000 (not 1007.0 as indicated by bruten58). My unzip file is also shown as 8/05/2009.
