Here is what I have already tried (with no success):
- - POWER (off) INFO MENU MUTE POWER (on) --> Service Menu
- POWER (off) MUTE 1 8 2 POWER (on) --> Service Menu (older models)
- MUTE 7 3 7 OK --> "PDPFactory"
Is there anyone who ACTUALLY OWNS an HU9000 series TV that has successfully made it into the service menus?
Ultimately, the only thing I am hoping to see in there is how many hours my TV has been running (I think this is called the "MRT" value) so I can know with certainty that this is indeed a NEW tv, and not a used Floor Demo model that had been blazing away in the store for many hours previously.
It would be perfect if I could find out how to generate THIS menu:

But as I just said, that combo (MUTE 7 3 7 OK) does nothing on the HU9000.
Thanks again in advance, any guidance would be greatly appreciated!!!
Ok, so I have pretty much answered my own question.
Anyone living in the USA will likely not have this problem, as the HU9000 tv's come packaged with 2 remotes - both the little "Smart Wand" remote, as well as the long rectangle traditional Samsung remote.
Anyone living in Canada will face the problem I did, of being unable to access the service menu - because in Canada (for whatever silly reason) the HU9000 only comes packaged with the little Smart Wand remote. Thus - I was unable to access the service menus because the codes don't work on any other universal remotes - you need an original Samsung remote (the long rectangle with the numberpad on it). So after borrowing one of those Samsung remotes - I was able to enter the service menu with this sequence:
- POWER (off) MUTE 1 8 2 POWER (on) --> Service Menu
From there, scroll down to SVC, enter, then SVC Info, enter - then success - my Panel Display Time, recorded in minutes. It only seems to register in increments of 10 minutes (ie: Mine showed 3250 minutes = about 54 hours). After being on for a few more minutes - it still showed 3250, and I started to fear that it was not giving an accurate total. A few minutes later, it updated to 3260 - then 3270, and so on - so it reads your total panel display time in increments of 10 minutes. MYSTERY SOLVED!!! What a relief.
So there you have it - you just need to use an original Samsung remote, the model of remote for the HU9000 series I have linked below:

Hope this helps someone else out there.
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!
Like you I have an UN55HU9000F and struggle to enter the service menu.
I do have the US version so the remote isn't an issue.
However, my set was upgraded from day 1 since it had internet connectivity.
So now I'm wondering if the upgrade would've disabled it or maybe some now button sequence exists.
Current version is 1130.
If anyone has any ideas I'm open.

Did you tried all keys combinations from first post?
Actually I finally succeeded today with MUTE,182,POWER.
I had no choice in upgrading to official Samsung firmware 1350.1 to make the TV stable.
So now I'm monitoring it to see if it holds.
Once it does maybe I'll try rooting it if it's at all possible at this stage.
