Had to brush up the area near the microschemes, as I think the connection during shot sustained somehow. Not very sure. :?:

Anyways, now my concern are the settings in SM, as I am not very sure of them. I did make them work, but I am not sure whether they are the same as it originally was. Any help?

Also, is PVR actually supported on my model? I was wondering, as you guys said, that PVR requires DVB tuner, and as per the specs, I do have it, though its DVB-T, but then again i checked some other models, and none of them have DVB-S, though they have PVR :

So, is there any chance that PVR can be enabled?

And how can I hack it via USB, for like telnets and other apps. I dont have an ex-Link cable. :(
Hi souradiproy,

I have the same, or very similar tv, from this old post of yours.
UN32C5000QM.

Can you please explain how is that you make it work? DO you remember step by step?
I changed something in the Service Menu (DTV country from Peru to Argentina) and it never switch on again. Just the blinking red led 6 times.

I really appreciate any extra details on how you did it.
Thanks!
Luciano

Hi everyone!

I have a Samsung UN40C5000QM. Yesterday entered Service Menu and walked through it but I guess I missed some configuration (DTV from Peru to Argentina) and now when plugged to the wall and turn on standby LED blinks 6 times and goes off, after some seconds it blinks 6 times again a goes off and repeats infinitely.

Tried doing EEPROM reset with pins 5 & 6 and with 4 & 5. Pins 5 & 6 seems to do nothing, but pins 4 & 5 make standby LED go off after I try to turn the TV on with RC and a few seconds after it starts to blink 3 times rapidly and off, and again 3 times and off an so on.

I don't know what to do. A few weeks ago I made it repair the source board (changed ICB801, a capacitor and a fuse) and worked liked new again, but I made a mistake with Service Menu evidently. Hope you guys can help me!

Cheers from Argentina!
