    Anyone know how to rest samsung lcd tv with freeview as freeview is locked?

  • qkchrissy Nov 13, 2008

    I've had my TV for 2 years and not had an issue with it until last week. My mate came over and I think she was flicking through the channels and left it on a radio station and its been stuck on it ever since.



    Everything else on the TV works fine apart from the freeview. DTV menu does not work either.



    I have tried the info-menu-mute-on but all it does is swith on, blank screen, switch off and switches itself back on again. No service menu comes up. I have tried this command several times but no luck in accessing the service menu.



    Am I doing something wrong or missing something? I do have the tv switched off on the analouge channel before i try the info-menu-mute-on.



    Any help would be appreciated... last resort is to call Samsung and get an engineer to check it.

I also got a black screen! I then turned the TV off, pressed TV and while it was lit, quickly pressed info, menu and then mute. Then switched the tv back on and amazingly......the menu was there. Go to item 12 and reset. I am please to say that we are back in business,
