I have purchased a Samsung Series 4 LCD TV.
Most likely ther's something wrong in the settings - this happens when you get a Composite ( yellow)signal in a Component (yellow+ blue+red) connection.
First of all make sure you have selected the correct plugs on both the tv and the dvd - the yellow/video composite + red/right + white/left should be in their own separate box. Then check that the cable is correctly plugged in. Finally check that the tv is set to use the Composite, not Component AV entry.

Setting the player to region free
The instructions for the DVD-P181 are actually correct as described in other posts but can be a bit confusing. Please allow me to clarify using my example;
With your DVD-P181 switched on, follow these instructions using your Remote Control;
1/ Press the <DVD> button
2/ Press <0><0><0><0><0> (this is 0, 5 times)
3/ Press <repeat> (careful not to press the <repeat A-B> button)
4/ Press <7><6><8><8><4> (ONLY if your player is currently region 4 - refer to the table below for other pre-set regions)
5/ The Region window should now appear on screen saying that your current region is Region 4 and asking what region you want to change it to.
6/ Press <0> for the new Region (0 is region-free)
7/ Press <Open/Close> button once (to open the tray)
8/ Press <Open/Close> button again (to close the tray
9/ Press <Power> button to turn the player off
Now, when you turn the player back on, you should be able to play DVD's from any region. Good luck everyone.
This table refers to Step 4. You need to choose the Region code which your machine is currently set to, to unlock the Region Menu which allows you to set the device to another region.
In my example, the DVD player was purchased in Australia is by default set to Region 4. The 5 digit number I needed was 76884.
5 digit code:
region 1 : 29334
region 2 : 37867
region 3 : 56732
region 4 : 76884
region 5 : 53814
region 6 : 24462

How do i tell if its the LED driver or the LED strips that have gone out?
Measure the voltage that goes into the lamps, should be 100 volts give or take, if you have it then the lamps are bad, also measure with the set off and turn it on and see if the voltage jumps up then drops off again, then you have bad lamps as well....also there is even more to the issue of no LEDs...there are a couple pins on some sets that tell the power board to turn on the circuitry to the LED section of the power supply...not all sets have that however
