In Reply to: Firmware issues by Samsung_HD_Tech
The Samsung download server has been down for more than 2 weeks now.
I have a B750 and I get the same error message. Before when I checked it, I did not get the (Connection Failed. Error 600) message. Rather, I got an acknowledgement that there was (or was not) a newer firmware version available. My LAN connection is fine and whenever I run the TV's network connection test, it always indicates that I am connected to the Internet and that my equipment is working properly.
It's a bit unfortunate that the server is down now (and for such an extended period of time) when so many people are upgrading to the spiffy new 2009 models. One of the first things I did when setting up my TV was (per the owner's manual) check for a firmware upgrade, and sure enough, I jumped from 1005 to 1007. If new owners are only seeing the aforementioned error message when they connect for the first time, then they probably don't even realize that the server is down and they could be missing out on an important firmware for their particular model.
