I need some help pranking the guys at a neighboring fire station on Thanksgiving day. Is there a way to make a Samsung UN55C8000 "unwatchable" with a few clicks on the remote? Maybe in the service menu? Nothing that cant be easily reversed, but might be time consuming to do so? One of the guys in question is a HUGE Packers fan and it would kill him not to be able to watch.

Thanks!

Go into the CHANNEL EDIT screen and delete whatever channel the game is going to be broadcast on.

^^^^ that would be one way. But what ever you do, stay out of the Service Menu because it is very easy to brick a tv that way.

+1. Or whatever input their cable box is using.

Set your house on fire at kick off time and call 911. rolleyes.gif

Or... pull the "prank". Then when you really need them, they will think it's just another prank.

EDIT:
Unless you're there to undo the prank quickly, I'm sure you can come up with another type of ha-ha. I wouldn't mess with firefighters at gametime on a holiday when they would probably rather be home with their families. wink.gif
