Hi Stucoe1975,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know: if you want Samsung support, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for New Zealand. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So while I can't help you directly, if you want Samsung help, here's the Samsung New Zealand portal for support on that product:
