Hello,

I have bought UE60KS8000 2 years ago when I was living in Turkey. Recently I moved to Netherlands but I am not able to watch digital channels through internet because country is locked to Turkey. I restarted it , then it turned to factory setting but country is still locked. Do you know how can I unlock the TV ?

B.regards

Hakan

1. Enter Extended factory menu by sending speciffic IR signals
2. Unlock locked country
3. set your wanted country

How to unlock greyed out service menu options? send factory+3speed keys with one of listed methods here: https://wiki.samygo.tv/index.php?title= ... SPEED_keys

also use search on forum about how to change region...

thank you but I am not an expert like you. What does it mean to send specific IR signals ? Can I do it with remote control only ?

you can do it with android smartphone, if it supports IR (if you can controll TV with phone, it can be used for this goal). Install SRC application from this link: https://forum.samygo.tv/viewtopic.php?f ... 405#p88075
Navigating in service menu is dangourous, please do your own research on this forum/wiki about service menu. You can easily brick TV. Keep in mind, with keys "up" down" you navigate trhough menu. But keys "left", "right" you change option! so if you just navigate - do not use "left" or "right", only "up, "down", "return" and "enter".

Just for info, not true anymore on K (and surely later), you can browse SM with left/right :ugeek:
