I have an RS-232 document for EX-Link also. When i was testing the commands a couple years ago i wasnt able to get the TV to turn ON with RS-232, all the other commands worked perfectly.

Later, after dealing with a Sharp LCD that had energy saver settings i learned that turning off energy saving would allow the The ON command to work. The TV ignores RS-232 commands (unless its already ON) when in energy saving mode. I havent been back to test the samsungs yet so i dont know if my theory is correct or not.

Do you know if the ON command that you have will bring it out of standby? Do you have one that you can test?

Thanks

I havent tried it yet but it just so happens that theres an existing samsung LCD here @ the job im working on and it has an Ex-Link jack. If i get time i will give it a shot. I already embedded the emitter in it and have it wired up to the CNXRMCLV so im not promising anything :).

FYI.. people have been emailing me about the exlink document for a while. Every single person tells me they end up using IR because they cant get it to work. No one is ever specific though so i dont know what they have tried.

The EX-Link document above worked with plasma's not LCD's. See the original thread here for the model numbers : [Link: remotecentral.com]

Wow.. November 2007! That was a long time ago :)

If you try, please let us know.
With new crop of LED Samsungs (and commercials all over the TV), everyone wants one. Since I'm working on small project at TimeWarner Building NYC where Samsung has experience / showroom center I stopped by.
Resident Samsung "expert" told me that Ex-Link is for audio! Go figure...

Anyone/Everyone......

Please post any/all Power ON & Power OFF serial commands for Samsung.

The commands in the Ex-Link document are not working but i do have communications with the LCD thats here On-Site.

I am going to give it another shot right before i leave tonight.

Thanks

The service menu didn't have the option to change it to hotel or any other mode. None of the commands i had worked. No one else posted any codes here so i gave up.

I made a nice EX-Link cable though :)

Ok, I am doing this too. I thought it would work right away but I was wrong.
I have a 6 series LNXX650 I think TV. I built the ex-link cable like the one above.
I am complete Newb when it comes to serial and terminal etc. So correct me if you see error. With hyper-terminal connect when I turn the TV on I receive a bunch of hex lines. So I assume my cable is working. Yay.
I tried sending hex for "J" for power or "n" for power off like doc says for the plasmas, and I get no response back and no work.
Then I try sending commands I found for DLP's in samsung manuals. Here is the Links to them:
[Link: akamaipix.crutchfield.com] Page121
and
[Link: akamaipix.crutchfield.com] Page222

Both have same commands for on and off, so I send:
08 22 00 00 00 00 D7
(8)(34)(00)(00)(00)(00)(215)
and also
08 22 00 00 00 00 D6
I manually did the Check-sum and came up with D7, and a program i put the values in gave D6.
I try enter the raw values with alt to convert to hex, like alt 34 then let go of alt and it prints 22 in hyper-term.
None of these got any response back from the TV.
Then I also tried "RS232 Hex Com Tool", basically setup to send hex easily, I try some commands like above, no response.

I go into the TV service menu, Hit Mute, 1, 8, 2, Power
The first Option on the top left "OptionByte" I hit enter to bring up new menu,
Near the bottom left it says "RS232 Jack", my default option when I first went in was "Auto Wall" which I assume is for sending remote commands out for wall control, I want commands to go In.. So I try..
"AV Control", "Auto Wall", "Hotel", & "Clone Box"

I try to send the above commands on each, they all look about the same when I power up as far as hex be sent to me. None of them respond with anything I send.

I did read on another forum someone doing exlink on maybe a plasma or dlp and they could not get any responce until they sent the tv the "right" codes.† So maybe its my codes or I am just not sending them correctly..† Any help?

Edit: Also I am aware that you cannot turn the TV on, I dont care about that. I need my HTPC To turn my TV off when the screensaver goes on, and not turn it back on. So if I were to use a IR blaster I would need to use the discrete off code to keep it from going back on if somebody bumps the mouse and the screensaver sets the code off again. I would much rather not use Blasters On my Nice TV.
The RS232 Settings I did not try was "Debug" and "Dealer Cali"

I'm on site now with a LN52B550 but am unable to get any response. Anyone got a sample string to send? I'm using either hyperterminal or RS232pro.
