Service Menu Warning

In reply to: Samsung Rear Projection SP43H3HT

I hate to do this, but this is precisely why I never recommend going into the service menu if you're not a qualified Samsung technician.

Unfortunately, unless you know how to undo exactly what you did, there isn't anything we can do to restore those menu alterations. Unfortunately, there isn't even a firmware update that could restore the settings as a last-chance hail-mary.

At this point, I might suggest calling 800-SAMSUNG, but the unit is likely out of warranty and you may have to pay out of pocket to get the unit working correctly again.

I don't have a blueprint for the default settings, so I just can't be of any help on this.

Close Call...

It depends on which submenu it is.

Quite honestly, like I said, I just can't get into that. It's one of those things that, if it turns into a discussion, more people will figure that there's an improvement in there, try it, and end up with the same problem.

You were lucky, and wow, I can't tell you how relieved to hear that you got your picture back.

If anyone can help me to realign that would help me, what do i need to re-align? the pal 100i? or middle lines?
