This is getting more common for Samsung Tvs. Series: D E (S+H) and F.

If anybody needs the original tuner let me know I have big quantity.

Hi Partman,

do you still have a DVB-S2/T2 or DVB-C/S2/T2 tuner for an ES8000 available?

Thanks!

Hi!

I want to report that I finally replaced the tuner in my old ES8000 tv-set. It took me two hours to remove the old tuner (40 legs) from the mainboard but finally won (I am not an expert in unsoldering; I bought a 13 EUR unsolderpump on Amazon for this task). I put in the replacement part BN40-00238b. After switching on the TV it automatically recognized the new tuner in service menu. DVB-T2 is now supported and running perfectly. No need to purchase a new one when you one require H.264!

Good luck to others!

Hi, I have an UN40ES7000, which brings a tuner BN40-00230A, which tuner should I put to capture the channels of the DVB T2 ?, buy the recommended mjagunic friend BN40-00238B send the board to the technician to make the change , But on arriving at the house and installing it did not work, with the previous tuner in the service menu in the Tuner options came with Echo_cti when installing the new tuner the option automatically became Echo_TC, brings other options like Echo_T2C but when selecting them And exit the service menu comes back and takes the Echo_TC option, is there any way to get the service menu options to be the ones that one chooses and not the ones that take automatically ?, am I doing something wrong? Or definitively that tuner that I bought to be from Europe does not work in Latin America specifically in my country Colombia, thank you very much for your valuable contributions.

@migueaparicio, in my case the tuner was automatically switched from "ALPS_TCS2" to "ECHO_T2CS2". This tells me, that the tuner informs somehow the TV which model it is. Did you already replace the hardware tuner on the motherboard? Otherwise a change in service menu makes no sense.

hi AbyVie, yes I change the tuner in the board, but not working, I think was because the tuner bn40-00238b is for Europe and my tv is an Un40es7000 made in Mexico and have a tuner bn40-00236a. I would like to know which tuner I can install in my TV and that captures the signal of DVB T2 that in Colombia is in the frequencies of 473 mhz to 551 MHz. Thanks for your help

Migueaparicio, in my UE40ES6710 the previous tuner was Bn40-00236a, and I switched it to Bn40-00238b. And in the service menu I selected from DVB_TCS2 to DVB_T2CS2 and that worked. Unfortunately I don't know if the tuners are the same for Europe and for Latin America. In your previous post you wrote that your tv had BN40-00230a, and in the last post you wrote that it was BN40-00236a, so which really is it? If you had the 00236a like me, then I think the 00238b should work for you also.

Hi

I have the same problem; here in my country they migrated from DVB-T to DVB-T2; I have a samsusng UN40D6500 and it only supports DVB-T. The tuner is a BN40-00210A.
Is there any DVB-T2 tuner to replace this one? The BN40-00238b you mentioned looks very simmilar, but I'm not sure if it will work.

Thank you very much!

For the moment in Italy DVB T2 is not yet applicable.
I have just verified that the tuner is available on the market and I found that on e-bay there are some that should fit as Samsung replacement.

As said, I will apply when the T2 will become effective in itali :)
(UP!)

looks like italy is going for DVB-T2 and HEVC, would it be possible to update these TVs by replacing the tuner?

I've got a couple "unsupported" TVs:
ue46es6710
ue46f5500

any chances?


regards,
corrado
