Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have s samsung dvd sh873. Whenever we have a power failure the dvd loses the channels settings and I have to retune. The problem is that when I try to auto tune the channel settings the auto scan shows country as Austria instead of Australia. The result of this is that I can' get any digital stations, only analogue. I'm unable to change this and have had to resort to taking it to a Samsung technican. I wonder if you can tell me how to change country from Austria to Australia?

Hello,

The DVD is actually restricted to Austria region that is why you are getting Austria whenever you are trying to search for channels.

You need to get the region off the DVD before you can search for channels in other countries including Australia.

To get the region off the DVD,

Install the latest firmware (at least sh873_080816) from samsung site (http://www.samsung.com/download/index.aspx?agreement=y)After the upgrade turn on the dvd player
Make sure there's no dvd in closed tray
Press the 'menu' button
In the main page press:
29334 if you have a region1 player
57538 if you have a region2 player
56732 if you have a region3 player
76884 if you have a region4 player
53814 if you have a region5 player
24462 if you have a region6 player
123456 if you are already in multiregion

Current region code is visible in the right corner
Press 9 for multiregion code or other region number to go back
Immediatly Press the 'Open/Close' button and leave the tray open for a about 5 seconds.
Press the 'On/off' button, player should be multi-region or region back....

Take care

    Thanks for your prompt response - a couple of questions - how do I find out what region my player is? To download and install the firmware do I have to connect my laptop to the DVD or TV?
    Thanks

Lost chanels after retune


You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.
