SAMSUNG 170 MP LOCEKD-UP

I just got a used Samsung 170 MP with out the remote, and all the menu options are locked. I can not even change the channels or adjust the contrast. Is there a way to reset or un-lock everything without the remote ??.

    Thank you, that did the job. it looks like it did not work while it was on the tuner option, but when i switched it to VIDEO, i was able to change stuff, then switched to tuner and BINGO. Thank you again, even my TV repair man could not fix it.

On the front panel press the Menu button for about 5 seconds. Once you press it the OSD will pop up. Keep holding the button until the OSD disappears. The setup should be unlocked now.

I have a Samsung LN55B650, and cannot use the remote to change channels, hav eto use cable remote. I change to TV mode, and program in channels, but that option is not available once I switch to HDMI2,...


OK the cable box remote is the only one that can change channels in this case. because you are using the tuner in the cable box not the TV.
all you need the TV remote for is to turn the TV on and off and turn the sound up and down. if you used the cable input on the TV then the tv remote would be used to change the channels.

Lock on monitor adjustments don't know how to turn off the lock so we can adjust brightness and color


Follow these instructions :
  1. Turn on your Samsung monitor (if it isn't already.)

  2. Press the "AUTO" button on your Samsung monitor. This will run the automatic configuration utility. This will look at your current computer settings and adjust your monitor to best match those. This will take a few seconds. If this has calibrated the monitor to meet your needs, you are finished with the process. If it hasn't, continue to Step 3.
  3. Press the "Menu" button on your Samsung computer monitor.
  4. Use the arrows and the "Enter" button on the monitor to highlight and select various settings categories.
  5. Use the "Brightness" menu on your Samsung monitor to adjust how bright or dark you want the image.
  6. Use the "Colors" menu to adjust how prominent certain colors are displayed on your Samsung monitor.
  7. Use the "Contrast" menu to adjust the level of black on your Samsung monitor.
  8. Select "Save and Exit" to save your changes and exit the Samsung monitor's on Screen menu.
