PIN Number for UE32ES6540

by jacksnakes / November 13, 2012 4:48 PM PST

Hi Guys.
Recently bought a 'refurbished' samsung TV (model No. above). When I try to set it up though, it asks for a pin that I have not created. I have gone through all the obvious ones - 0000, 1111, 2222, etc and 1234 but I am beginning to suspect the item may not have been refurbished at all, but is in fact second hand. I'm not really concerned about this since apart from the 'PIN' issue, it works perfectly - but the question is, is there any kind of reset that can be achieved that engineers or technicians would use?
Any help greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately you need the original pin - it looks like I start at 0000 and go through every combination till 9999....

Then my best suggestion is to call Samsung for how to reset it.

Try this for PIN number reset

Check the following remote key combination (from standby/power off state):

Mute -> 8 -> 2 -> 4 -> Power

With a bit of luck, it should reset PIN to default (0-0-0-0). This combination used to work in various older B/C/D-Series TVs, YMMV.
