Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have the samsung LN52A550. When I turn the tv on a blue screen appears. I tried changing the source with the menu button but does not display anything. The TV is about 2 years old. The sound works. When I try a different input(dvd player) same results(althoug I cannot change ths source because the menu does not display). The dvd is attached via a three cable. The directtv is attached via hdmi cable.



Answers :

Try this
Method one- with set on, hold down the exit button on the remote for 10 seconds. It will bring up the warning it will reset to the defaults it had when removed from the box and powered up initially. in the warning box it will show the cancel button highlighted initially. press the left arrow to select the reset option. You may end up doing this blind, so you may need to try it a couple times and the only indication of where you are is just a slight flash from part of the screen.
Once that left arrow has been pressed once, the reset option choice changes to "Ok" or "reset", press "enter" The set should
do it's thing to reset and then shutdown.,

Method 2
it should get you into the hotel settings, but you can reset to factory defaults from there, changing any other settings may limit access to the normal settings.
Shut the set off.

The while holding the mute, menu and info buttons, trun the set on while holding them down. If the functions portion of the board is working, it should bring up hotel options menu.

While re-setting the Display function it was accidently set for PAL viewing instead of NTSC. The image is now rolling vertically on the NTSC TV screen. Now, I cannot re-set the display functions because I cannot view the steps while the screen is unreadable. The manual does not supply a step-by-step link. Unplugging the player does not help. Inserting a standard NTSC DVD does not help. The menu cannot be viewed in order to clear it. Help!
