Problems with the picture mode on my samsung 46''

My new samsung tv has 3 picture modes; dynamic, standard, and movie. If I set the picture mode to standard within about 30 minutes the tv switches the picture mode to dynamic automatically. It also switches the picture size to 16:9 no matter what I have it set at i.e. wide screen. I can't figure out why it keep reverting back to these settings. Any ideas?????

Your TV is in DEMO-STORE MODE.
Go to menu, find Plug & Play option, start it, and when asked, select Home Mode, than Enter and than just Exit.

Enjoy Your TV!

    i used what you said ...but the tv wont let me choose plug and play mode, its greyed out

    The reason it won't let you choose "plug and play" mode is because you need to make sure your "source" is "TV" - if its "HDM1" or something other than "TV" it will be grey. Once you choose "TV" as the source, then "plug and play" with be white and you can choose it. I had the same problem on my tv, but its fixed now. It was stuck in "demo-store" mode and I changed it to "home" mode. Good Luck.

In hdmi i only get standard picture mode??


Have you tried another source on the HDMI to see if you get the same results? If not then the source for some reason is locking out those modes. If the second source doesn't work then it is a feature not available while using HDMI.

Poor picture


Dynamic mode will give you a brighter picture. The energy saving mode runs the lamp at a more efficient level that saves energy at the cost of a slightly darker picture. Based upon your description, I'd guess that the lamp is nearing the end of its useful life. Plan on changing the lamp soon. When you do so, place the set back to standard mode and energy saving.

It sounds like your TV is in Shop Mode.
Shop mode is a set of picture parameters that have been optimized for a store showroom or display floor. Shop mode does not allow you save any picture settings such as brightness or contrast.
To get the TV out of Shop Mode press and hold the Menu button on the front panel for three seconds, the picture will blank momentarily then reappear with “Dynamic Mode” shown on the screen. At this point the picture parameters can be changed and saved.

Samsung lcd tv le32r8 (Picture - Movie setting)


The TV is probably in Shop mode, when your TV is initially turned on you can choose between Shop mode or Home Mode.
In Shop mode the TV automaticly returns to the standard setting after a while, they do this so customers can "play" with it.

Press down de Volume button and then hold down the Menu button for five seconds on the side panel of the tv.
