Samsung UN55D6000 picture settings changes won't save

by gmu599 / April 15, 2012 9:08 AM PDT

I've owned this TV for 4 months now and really like it. Yesterday I went into my picture settings to make a few tweeks. When I went back and checked the settings, the tweeks had reverted back to were they were previously (Not original factory settings).

I then made the changes again and they stuck. I then went in later to make another tweek and the same thing happened. It only seems to save my changes on the second try.

Has this happened to anyone else? I even did the whole "restart" by going into the TV settings and reconfiguring from scratch.

Yes, I've done the whole restart thing including reconfiguring the Plug & Play option from the top.

Last thing before service...
by Samsung_HD_Tech Samsung staff / April 15, 2012 4:14 PM PDT

One last tip before going to 800-SAMSUNG for service:

The settings are "input specific". So if you change the settings for HDMI-1, they will be different than HDMI-2, HDMI-3, and so forth. So if you changed the settings on your cable box input, but they don't show up in your Blu-Ray player's input, it's because you have to do each input separately.

If that's still not solving the problem, it may by reverting for some other reason and require service.

You know what buddy? I'm pretty sure that since I've done the reset, that has been the problem. I didn't realize that the settings were input specific and when making my tweeks, I was often switching between 2 inputs.

Thanks again....I'll keep my eye on the settings and keep this in mind. I feel pretty good that you've solved my problem!
