    I picked up a Samsung HCL473W 47" Rear Projection TV and although I love it, I'm a little confused by some accessories. The set came with 4 black disks about 2" inches in diameter with no markings. I have no idea what to do with these, as they aren't mentioned at all in the manual. Maybe they're for under the TV's wheels, but I really don't know what purpose they would serve there. Does anyone know what these are for, or should I call Samsung to find out?

    William,

    Apparently, we don't know either. But perhaps you could describe them a bit in more detail. What material they're made of? How thick/thin? Were they packed separately?

    hey thanks guys,

    I'll try my best to describe them. They are 4 pieces, black hard plastic, 2" in diameter, aboout a quarter of an inch high (edges are about an 1/8 of an inch thick, packaged together in a clear, sealed plastic baggie. They're not completely flat, as they look like little flying saucers if the roof of the dome was removed (does this make sense?) On the bottom of each, there's a number: AA61-20126A, then next line: W3.T6, then nrxt line: HC #2-1 (the last number on each disk ends with a different digit, i.e. HC #2-1 is followed by HC #2-2, and so on).

    When I first saw them, I imagined they were feet for under the tv, but the set has wheels and these are hard plastic and not exactly good for protecting a surface.

    Anyway, that's all the info I can see to give. Thanks a lot for any help.

    Still no idea - do they have a hole? Like if a bolt has to go through?
    Is there absolutely no indication in the manual or other enclosed material?

    Do the wheels come off optionally (e.g. if you don't want to use them), and could there be space for those "feet" then?

    If it stays unclear, you must certainly contact your dealer or else Samsung's support group. (And then don't forget to tell us what it actually is!) [​IMG]

    From Google search [AA61-20126A Samsung] it appears the 4 pieces are casters!

    Casters are something people used to put under the legs of their furniture to make it easier to slide across carpeting. Not sure why they'd be included if the TV has wheels, though.

    They are easier on the floor or carpet if placed under the wheels, after you have positioned the TV. You would remove the disks before moving the TV on its wheels.

    Great.
    And now we need to know why they have different part numbers.

    (For your info: casters may help damage the carpet less severe than when wheels are on it.)
