You probably have the type that fits on your power cord that runs your system. If so, it should just wrap around this cord and snap in place.

Your manual or quick set up guide should also give proper instruction about how to attach it.

Re: where do you hook up the toroidal ferrite core on a sams...

A toroidal ferrite core helps reduce RF-interference (noise from other electronic equipment or AM radio signals).

 

Ferrite cores typically go on DC-power cables (between the power adaptor and the device) because all the noise-filtering is within the power adaptor and they don't want noise added between the power adaptor and the device.

 

Ferrite cores can also found on any video or data cable that lacks sufficient shielding. Sometimes a device will use an unshielded cable because they want an extra-thin or extra-flexible cable, but sometimes it's because they are too cheap to use quality cable.

HW-355

I am connected with optical cable. Cannot make audio cable work.

Never heard of a Samsung toroidal ferrite core before today.. Instruction drawing incomplete. I have to clip it on the SW thin cable? It is very, very  loose and slides around. Has this anything to do with the intermittent blip of sound which why I am writing this.. it is impossible to ignore and incredibly irritating.
