It needs factory remote reset. This sound wierd but it will fix it and you need to be handy with a soldering iron. Open up you remote control and solder 2 wires onto pins 15 and 21 of the micro. Re assemble your remote and leave these two wires poking out. Point remote and set and touch the wires. It will say test. Type in 01 and drawer will open. It should now be back in uk mode.

I have a samsung dvd sr150m and unfortunately it seems that the country to scan the digital channels has defaulted to Austria and there is no option to select or even change to any other country, can you help me in order to get this reset to UK?

Does work. Remember the pins on the IC are numbered anticlockwise with the dot as no.1 Turn the remote so pin 1 is nearest you on the right. When TEST appears press 01 before it goes out. Once CLR appears on display, turn machine off for a moment, then once it is back on it should say AUTO and tune itself.

I have shorted out pins 15 and 21 as said here but test does not come up, what do I do now and why as it gone like this in the first place, is the not a combination of buttons you can press on the remote to get into enginers settings and test mode?

please get back to me as i'm at my witts end here and it's still stuck in Austria.

We have a samsung sr150m digital DVD recorder with the country code set to austria, and so will not work, how do we change country setting. Hope someone can help. Thanks

If you bought it in a country not in austria, there must be a feature in it that you can change the country code setting. Try to go to the menu or set up on the remote control or the buttons on the unit. Scan for the features using the arrows. If you find 'country code settings', change it to the country you prefer.

Updating the Channel List Automatically You can update the channel list when the broadcaster adds new Services or if you move the TV to a new location.

1. Press the MENU button to display the menu. Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select "Digital Menu", then press the ENTER button.

2. Press the ▲ or ▼ button to select "Channel", then press the ENTER button.

3. Press the ENTER button again, to select "Country".

4. Select the appropriate country by pressing the ▲ or ▼ button. Press the ENTER button to confirm your choice. Even though you have changed the country setting in this menu, the country setting for Analogue TV is not changed. (Refer to page 11 of the user guide)

5. Press the ▲ or ▼ button again, to select "Auto Store". Press the ENTER button. When it has finished, the number of scanned services will be displayed. The existing favourite channel list will not be deleted when the channel list is updated. To stop the scan before it has finished, press the ENTER button with "STOP" selected.

SAMSUNG LE32R73BDX/XEU TV Digital TV Stuck on bbc1, no access to DTV menu to reset or retune. Sometimes picture is frozen, always it shows BBC banner and Mono. Standby - Info - menu - Mute - Power is not...

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!!!! :-)

Since they switched to digital TV, my VCR/DVD player will not record a TV program.

The DR-MV150B has both a digital tuner and analog tuner. Since the digital conversion you more likely have not run a channel scan for the new digital channels. Plugging in a digital tuner would work, but is unnecessary. What you probably have to do is run the 'auto scan' feature through the recorders menu. Hit "Home" button go to the "TV" icon and select "Auto Scan". It will take a few minutes, but recorder will scan for digital channels and memorize them.

I need to reset the country on my samsung dvd-sr150m as it is currently set to austra so when it scans for digital channels it isnt scanning england

Resetting to Austria, for no reason at all, is a known issue. The machines _cannot_ be reset by the user. Samsung DVD models affeceted need to be taken to their Mitcham depot for a software upgrade (either the customer does that, or an engineer can call at your home to take it away and bring it back at a later date). In the UK, phone the Samsung helpline 0870 242 0303 Mon-Sat 9.00-6.00
