Samsung HL-P5085W menu access problem

Good morning betz 73, I went to the Samsung FAQ section where they had literally hundred of Q&A's. Basically the unaccesable menu items I mentioned in the previous e-mail cannot be accessed through an HDMI connection or a component connection. All menu functions work when you are in an RF in program. Go figure? The Samsung FAQ section has answers to almost any problem you may experience. Thanks for your help. I hope this information will be helpful to you and others. Paul

Hl p5085w Samsung tv has a black side how can I fix it

If this is in the form of a vertical stripe, the likelihood is that either the display panel is faulty or the ribbon cable is loose. Try reconnecting the ribbon cable inside. If this does not solve the problem, I suggest you try a repair shop who will have the spare parts necessary to diagnose the problem.
