I would too if another one was available, right now amazon is showing them as sold out barring some third party sellers. So Amazon will offer me a money refund since they do not have replacements. That is why I am considering repairs before sending it back.

I might eventually send it back for money too but I don't want to, that is why I came here to request for advice.

If there is can you enclose a picture.

There is a toggle switch. You can power the tv off, go through the menu, etc. It's on the back of the tv, far bottom left if facing the tv. Looks like a nodule sticking out. There is a button inside that you can toggle.

I didn't know this existed until at least a month after I bought the tv...


it wasn't until I finally decided to scour the entire tv looking for the power button because my remote was being funky. even then, iirc I had to look it up on the google

From the "Service Menu" I can see:

LVDS : Failure
T-CON/FRC: Failure

Does this mean anything to you guys?

Anyone know if the Samsung PS64F8590 equates to the PN 8500 series? They look pretty similar visually and specs

Physical media is on the way out

that you probably shouldn't be in the service menu if you don't know what you're doing


but seriously, is there any reason why you went into the service menu to begin with?

probably, there's pretty much no chance Samsung would make a 'different' tv at this point
