Question about Televison & Video
Hi I have the a 40 inch LCD Samsung LE40R73BD
Whenever the TV is on DTV setting, to obtain freeview channels, the channel is stuck. Its on one channel, when first switched on pictures and sound work, will not move from this channel and can only get into certain menus, eventually picture freezes and only sound works.
I've just some digging around and found that you can access a service menu and perform a reset which sorted the issue for me.
Access the service menu by pressing, in order, whilst the tv is in stand-by mode:
when the tv comes back on you will have a service menu; select option 12 (reset) the tv will then switch off.
this will reset your TV back to factory defaults.
turn tv back on and you should be prompted to go through the plug and play setup again - go through everything and then all should start working OK (it did for me)
