Samsung Smart UE40ES6900 wont save satellite settings

by Dunc9999 / February 5, 2013 5:23 PM PST

I have a new UE40ES6900U and attached it to a satellite feed. Auto scan doesn;t find any channels, so I went into menu>channel>satellite system>LNB settings and in here it lets me change the satellite between eurobird and astra, so I changed to astra and changed the transponder setting until I got a 100% signal. I cannot then save this. If I return and go back in, it has reverted to eurobird and no signal. I think if I could save and then go back to auto scan I would find channels.
I am in home mode not store mode.
Any help much appreciated!

Hi Dunc9999,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for the UK. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So if you want the most accurate information, here's the Samsung UK portal for support on that product:

Hope this helps you!

Thanks, I had looked on there with no luck so I thought I'd try on here.
Maybe have to give support a call!

A wild guess.

Some settings will revert if the set is in demo mode, shop mode or such. I don't see this model so be sure to check out that setting.

Hi Bob,
I am definitely in "home mode" not demo/store so it is something else, but thank you for your reply!
