Question about Samsung LN-T4061F 40 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Firmware update caused static on the display

Like a fool, I upgraded the firmware on my Samsung LN-T4061F from the factory installed version 1007 to version 1019. The TV has been working great for the last year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website and applied it according to the instructions. When the TV restarted after the update, the screen was covered in static, every channel, every input. The video problems also affect the menu and information displays, which do not show the correct colors and have static as well. The audio had no problems.

    A quick search on Google and the answer was found in another forum. I tried it and it worked. Here it is.



    In the below settings, you'll want to press buttons slowly. The TV lags between when you press a button and when it responds.

    0. Set the TV onto an unused source so you have a black or blue screen. This makes reading the menu easier in later steps.
    1. Turn the TV off.
    2. On the remote, press MUTE, 1, 8, 2, POWER
    3. The TV will turn on into service mode. It takes a few seconds after powering on to display the service menu.
    4. Using the arrow buttons on the remote, go down to Option Byte and press Enter.
    5. Arrow down to "Lvds Tx Fmt" and press Enter.
    6. Using the right and left arrow buttons, change the setting. Mine was set to JEIDA. Setting it to VESA fixed things.
    7. Press Menu to exit.
    8. Turn the TV off to apply the changes.


    Also, check the info from the link I posted (below) to make sure that a few other settings in Option Byte are correct for your tv.


    Quote:
    Make sure the SCREEN SIZE is correct: Panel Option = 46AMW for LN-T4665 displays, and 46AM for LN-T4661 displays.
    Make sure that if you own an LN-T4x65 that your Lvds Tx Bit = 10bit.
    Make sure if you own an LN-T4x61 that your Lvds Tx Bit = 8bit.
    If you own an LN-T4x65, your should change your model so it says "Tulip Side."
    If you own an LN-T4x61, you should change the model so it says "Tulip."

    I have the problem and tried MUTE-1-2-3-POWER solution, but my remote won't work it out. Is there a way of accessing the service mode or menu using TV button? Or other key combination from remote?

    I had the same problem and the suggestion did fix the Digital channel and HDMI input. However, the analog channels show blue-ish color on the picture. Is there any suggestion?

    Thank you!!! You sir are a genius!! I was freaking out!! Samsung was insisting that someone had to come and repair my TV.

    I have the LN-T4661F. I was getting some jittering so I upgraded the firmware, not realizing that Samsung firmware works like no other firmware I've encountered.

    It hosed the TV. I called Samsung and the guy basically told me I screwed myself by downloading a firmware for an issue it wasn't made for. I asked for them to send me an older firmware so I could reflash it. That's not how firmware works (according to him).

    He tells me I am 2 days outside of my warranty. Nice. I say well I need to speak to someone higher up. I get a nice lady who offers to extend my warranty by 30 days so we can get it fixed.

    She goes off to set up a service call. Comes back and realizes my warranty is good for another 3 months because I registered the TV online! So, then she says there's no repair center within 25 miles, so someone will call me within 3 days to set something up.

    I was so mad at myself that I couldn't sleep so I started scouring the net and stumbled across this post.

    I can not thank you enough for this information! My only dilemma now is what to tell Samsung in order to cancel the service call!

What is latest firmware for UN19D4003


Don't do it. I made the mistake about 15 minutes ago and it downgraded the firmware. Now since the small set isn't wifi, I either wait for an email with a restore update or a tech will come to my home, I'm not sure. It didn't feel right upgrading to a lower number, but like you said, it was on the website...

Firmware version


Wireless routers contain built-in programmable logic called firmware. The firmware is embedded software that implements network and security protocols for that specific model of hardware device.Every wireless router ships with a tested version of firmware provided by the manufacturer. However, most routers are also designed to support a firmware upgrade process. This allows the manufacturer to provide enhancements to routers already sold. Manufacturers generally provide firmware upgrades as free downloads from their Web site.

Additionally, a few manufacturers (like Linksys) provide their firmware as open source code on the Internet. Programmers worldwide are free to modify and extend the code with new features for their routers. Several versions of this hacked firmware can be found on the Web, but the average homeowner should avoid these types of firmware.
The Firmware Update Process
You begin a firmware upgrade by downloading a binary file package from the manufacturer's Web site. After the package is set up properly on a PC, an administrator can launch the actual upgrade from the wireless router's administrative console. The router will stop functioning if the upgrade fails to complete. For this reason, manufacturers generally recommend an Ethernet cable be run from the router to the PC to ensure maximum stability during the update. Consult the router's product documentation for details.
Immediately after purchasing a router, check the firmware version to ensure it is the latest version. Firmware can be installed on a router at the factory several months before the router is sold.
Then, check the manufacturer's Web site occasionally over time for any new firmware upgrade postings. Each time a firmware upgrade is posted, the manufacturer will provide notes detailing the enhancements it provides. Feel free to skip an upgrade if the new version does not offer any interesting features. However, if a router is performing sluggishly, freezing unexpectedly or experiencing dropped connections, firmware upgrade often supplies a quick fix.

Samsung LNT4065 started flashing 2 weeks ago...unplugged to reset 2hrs later back to normal...made a call to Samsung about this problem...contact with customer service sent email with firmware to download...


I'd say what you really needed in the first place is this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/BN44-00167C-SAMSUNG-POWER-BOARD-REPAIR-KIT-/110735490949?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19c8597f85

As to why it went dead...I think (and you should pray) that it's because the original problem just showed up again.

The original problem being the power board not functioning right and NOT what Samsung told you.

Chances are I am wrong, of course.

But I'd bet my lunch over anything any large company service rep reads you from a book.

We have a M2727 Laserjet Printer/Fax . We can print, and we can receive fax, but our problem is sending a FAX.. Keeps giving us an error code of 49. Please advise Thank-You, Marla


I found this on the HP website:

HP LaserJet M2727 Multifunction Printer Series - 49 Error Message Is Displayed While Faxing ISSUE: The printer control panel will be displaying 49 service error while sending faxes. The receiving fax will be lost, and the printer will display the same error even after reboot. SOLUTION: Performing a factory reset and a firmware upgrade is the only solution for this issue. Step 1: Performing a factory reset Restoring the factory-set defaults returns all of the settings to the factory defaults, and it also clears the fax header name and phone number. CAUTION: This procedure clears fax numbers and names that are associated with one-touch keys and speed-dial codes, and deletes any pages that are stored in the memory. The procedure then automatically restarts the product. Perform the following steps to restore the factory-set defaults: 1. On the product control panel, press Setup . 2. Use the arrow buttons to select Service , and then press OK . 3. Use the arrow buttons to select Restore defaults , and then press OK . The product automatically restarts. Step 2: Firmware upgrade After coming to ready, upgrade the printer firmware from the HP website. The issue can be fixed with any of the firmware upgrade available now. Firmware version 20080505 and higher versions have the fix. You can download firmware version 20080612 from the HP LaserJet M2727 Firmware Update 20080612 webpage. Click here to go to the HP LaserJet M2727 Firmware Update 20080612 webpage (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=3377075&swItem=ma-55531-3&prodNameId=3377076&swEnvOID=228&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=3) .

LOUD Volume when turned on, LN-T4061F


You probably have a bad Main bd. It is not remembering the last setting it was set to. Also, there might be a Firmware upgrade for this problem. Contact 1-800-Samsung and ask for tech support to see if they have a Firm ware upgrade for your model. They can send it to you in the form of a Flash drive or you can download it from the Samsung website into a flash drive and then plug it into the USB port on the tv.Follow the indtrustions to a tee.
