Remove the battery, then hold down the Volume Up button and the Power button at the same time, while someone inserts the battery.
This should take you to a menu. Different models may use Volume Down/Power button instead.

Samsung BD-C 5500 blue ray player DVD tray stays closed after suggested fixes


Sounds like a security code setting in the manufacture's setting. Manufacturers have different terms and different ways of doing things in the their menu settings that can often be confusing to users. All players come with a remote control with a menu button. If you have a users manual check it out for the manufacturers interoperations list of the abbreviations you observe on screen what they mean. Ask you self what does that mean and so on and look it up in the manual for help. If you haven't one you can consult search engines for the manual. When you press the remote control menu button an on screen menu displays plastered in front of the players welcome desk top. If you are familiar with toggling though your cell phone or computer menus search for settings and observe if there is any ON/OFF feature buttons that may be provided to switch of the annoying feature.

Volume stays at 100 i try to turn it down and goes back up


Does this TV have a touch-pad on the TV for the channel/volume/on-off control of the TV? If it does, I would suspect that this board has a problem that is keeping the volume+ function stuck on.

Volume control


Do you have the volume at -5dB when listening to source 1? That would in most cases be far beyond the receivers capabilities when listening on an average loud recording from a standard source. I would guess that your source has a way to low signal.

However, i assume the answer to the question is this:
There is a way to trim the levels of each source (Input). It can be adjusted -6dB to +6dB.
Select the input you want to adjust. Hit Set Menu on the remote. Then Manual Setup -> Input Menu - > Volume Trim. Adjust up or down. In your case adjust your source 1 to + 6dB and all other inputs to -6dB.

Volume Controls Are Frozen


Try unplugging it from the wall for about 2 minutes and then trying again. This will force a system reset as it sounds like it locked up.
