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.

You should use the search remote code feature:

  1. Hold the device button you want to program for 3 seconds & release.
  2. Push & release the power button & the red light will remain lit.
  3. Push the CHANNEL UP button over & over slowly until the device turns off.
  4. When device turns off press OK button.
Hopefully that works for you.

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.

Hello Gregor_69

Lets see if we can get you sorted out. Please follow my steps and you will be back up and running in no time.

with you samsung remote make sure you press the TV button so that we are on a TV channel and not one of the other inputs.
Then press MENU
down to CHANNEL
go to AUTO STORE
you should find two option on there 1. air 2. cable
You want to highlight the air and START.
it will now give you 3 option
Digital & Analgue

This will auto tune just your Digital channels. Once this progress bar has finished. You should find that all your Digital channel have returned to normal.

Samsung LE32R74BDX 32 in......


just spoke to Samsung support and it turns out that the freeview tuner had froze and needed resetting. To do this put TV on standby and then push in series these buttons on the remote: 'info, menu, mute, power' the TV will then turn itself on and display a menu. Press the 'down arrow' untill you've highlighted option 12 - 'reset' and then press the 'right arrow' to enter the option. TV will turn off and when you turn back on it will start in 'plug & play' mode as if new. Set the time and country options and then it will perform a complete scan. I've just retuned mine and all back to normal. Hoorah!!!! :-)

Samsung LE26R Digital Frozen


Solution that worked for me:

Beware: Although the process should be safe, it technically voids your warranty.

Enter the service menu:
1 - turn of tv with remote
2 - press and release in the following order on the remote: Info, Menu, Mute. Make sure remote is pointing at the tv
3 - turn on the tv from the remote
4 - you will see the service menu. using the down arrow on the remote select the Reset option. Using the right arrow button at this point will do a hard reset.
5 - Wait a few seconds, turn TV on
6 - you will have to rescan analogue and digital channel but it should be working now.
