SOURCE: Invalid format error with P1600 blu-ray and LG LCD TV 42"

It may be a firmware issue if hdmi works with other items such as playstation.
If no hdmi the main Pcb hdmi ports are bad and the main Pcb would have to be replaced.

Consumers cannot upgrade the firmware so a shop would be the only option.

I WOULD LIKE TO UPGRADE THE FIRMWARE ON MY SONY KDL40EX400 LCD TV.I BOUGHT THE ?FLASH DRIVE FOR IT. HOW DO I DOWNLOAD THE INFORMATION ON TO IT?


You must go to the Sony website and answer the questions about your TV. Model number etc. Then go to support and input your model again. Look for software/firmware upgrade and it should take you to the firmware upgrade and download for your Model number. Download the firmware upgrade "INSTRUCTIONS and the firmware to your computer. Then plug in a blank formatted USB flash drive into your computer and transfer both the instructions and the firmware files to the flash drive. Be sure to unzip the firmware files on the flash drive. Print the firmware upgrade instructions so you can have them there when you are ready.Special Notice!!! Read and really understand the instructions and follow them to the tee. Do not power off the TV or unplug the flash drive while the TV is upgrading the firmware. Let the TV finish.

Samsung LNT4065 started flashing 2 weeks ago...unplugged to reset 2hrs later back to normal...made a call to Samsung about this problem...contact with customer service sent email with firmware to download...


I'd say what you really needed in the first place is this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/BN44-00167C-SAMSUNG-POWER-BOARD-REPAIR-KIT-/110735490949?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19c8597f85

As to why it went dead...I think (and you should pray) that it's because the original problem just showed up again.

The original problem being the power board not functioning right and NOT what Samsung told you.

Chances are I am wrong, of course.

But I'd bet my lunch over anything any large company service rep reads you from a book.

Hye,first of all sorry for my english.I have Samsung LEDTV LCD UE46C8000XP,and I download a newest software from samsung.com site ( T-VALDEUC-3001.1 ) and tell now I have a problem with 3D movies! Can I...


You can't I'm afraid. There is no mechanism for reverting to older versions of the firmware and this upgrade (3001.1) destroys your TV. I have phoned and e-mail samsung and their only resolution to this is "have a new moterboard fitted".

Unfortunatley if you search the AV Forums on the web you will see thousands of people have fallen into this trap and Samsang dont seem to care. Try contacting them directly through samsung.com

Anyone else reading this should avoid purchasing Samung products and CERTAINLY don't upgrade the firmware if you already have one. Unfortunately Samsung dont seem to understand the concept of customer care.

Sorry dj_mrcina, this probably isn't what you want ot hear but your only options are: hope they release a patch with a version of 3001.2 or above : get a new motherboard fitted (Samsung will pay for this is you call them) : Stop watching 3D.

I installed the FM transmitter module which came with my samsung LCD TV model LA40C530F 1R. I tried accessing the FM transmitter menu in order to turn the transmitter On and to set the frequency but that...


1. Press the menu button(green)
2. down arrow once - (a picture of a speaker should appear with sound written vertically next to it)
3. Right arrow once (selects the sound menu)
4. Down arrow till you see FM transmitter (down arrow 4 times on my TV. If you don't see the FM transmitter option in the menu then upgrade your TV to the latest software (details at the end of this help file)
5. Right arrow to get into the FM transmitter menu
6. select the "FM transmitter: off" line and turn it on (FM transmitter : on)
7. Change the frequency to to one that is not used by a radio station or has interference noise (get a radio and tune it till you hear the choosh sound with no beeping or clicking from lightning - then set the tv fm transmitter to that frequency using the up and down arrow keys and enter.
8. You should here your tv sound comming through the radio even if the tv sound is off.

If you need to upgrade your tv software then:
1. format a usb stick
2. download firmware.exe from"
http://www.samsung.com/za/consumer/tv-audio-video/television/lcd-tv/LA32C530F1RXXA/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=support
3. click on firmware
4. click on "Upgrade File(USB type)" and download it to your usb stick
5. when the download is complete double click on the file and extract it to the usb stick.
6. eject the usb stick.
7. plug it into your TV and slelect software upgrade when prompted - I didn't loose any settings even though it warns you that you will (samsung are just covering themselves)

Samsung T220hd Firmware upgrade problem


Cheers, will do in future, just thought i'd re-post to try and get an answer.

Solved the problem the same way suggested above, strange how samsung know about the problem but yet still allow the user to change the firmware.

A master re-set for this model incase it's of use to anyone is info, then menu, then mute then power on the remote in series (not simultaneously as suggested by samsung support).

On a better note, samsung support were very helpful and the free of charge collection delivery service is very good.
