Update 3
Ok All good managed to flash it with standard remote.

The key to finding that usb d/l is to look not in pdp options but under svc it is located in that folder.

Once in there click on usb d/l (make sure usb is insered into usb port on tv with that folder and file like in service bulletin) and then click right on it and it should say upgrading.
Now don't touch anything and let it finish.

Once it is complete it will turn off and then back on. Takes about 1minute.

Now testing for pink banding on my ps58c7000 and will update how to do it with standard remote. Very simple once you know how.

Update 4
Brilliant the software upgrade has fixed the purple banding on white background.

Very very happy. Will post how it was all done soon but basically its like this and if you are not confident with it don't do it but if you are techy and like this stuff and you root your android then go for it.

Rough outline
1. Plug usb into usb connector with the correct file and folder as per service bulletin.
2. Turn hotel menu on
3. Go into service menu
4. Go into svc/logic usb d/l and click right and it should say upgrading and wait for 1 minute and tv will turn off and then back on again and all should be good.
5. Go back into hotel menu and turn it off. {not that important but nice to return it back to default]

Importantly for my tv
To enable hotel menu on silver remote
press [mute] [1] [1] [9] [enter] whilst tv is on
In there, Enabling Hotel Mode and then
"Clone USB to TV" (to get a current channellist)
It will pop up with something like channels found or something hit ok on that

Press power off on remote

Now enter service menu whilst tv is off
by pressing [info] [menu] [mute] [power] on your remote

It should turn on and you see service menu and you should see an extended menu under control
No need to go into control/pdp but you should see it available if you have correctly enabled hotel mode on and received the extended menu(just check its visible)
Now simply go into svc in default menu and there should be a usb d/l option
click right on remote and right again and it should say upgrading
Don't touch anything and HOLD YOUR BREATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for about 1 minute and then it should turn off and then on again.

Check your pinks on white mine is all great now..
and whilst tv is on
Go into hotel menu by pressing on remote
mute 1 1 9 enter
Here just turn off hotel menu by clicking right on it twice and it should say hotel menu off

Voila turn off tv via remote and then back on adjust your picture settings to before and audio and enjoy your new Samsung non pink display with a nice cold beer.

PS - my model was ps58c7000 Samsung 2010 model
I take no responsibility if you fail to follow this guide or you press something else on your remote. It is risky but caveat emptor. Hope this helps someone

Speaking of the file itself--because I don't really know for sure if the file got installed...can anyone else here who was able to install the logic file successfully see what Logic SW version and checksum is being reported on their TV? Mine reports SW version 11-11-30 and Checksum 0x1B35.

Yes I can confirm this is what I also see with new software:
logic sw version 11-11-30
logic sw checksum 0x1B35

The original showed:
logic sw version: 10-06-21
logic sw checksum: 0x160c

Furthermore, I can also confirm the panel temperature shown just above the the logic sw version is cooler on the new software.
My original which showed the pink was 41C whilst with new software it shows 39C.

24hrs and still no pink banding with this software.
The panel is as good as new and exceptional. Thank you Samsung.

Firmware wont load

Hi,

I have been reading all these posts from this thread and from the main owners thread. I have to say I am frustrated as hell. i have no problem entering the service menu with the regular remote using the codes but every time I try the download it just says fail.

I have the right structure on usb, file name etc. Even did several new downloads and tried 3 different usb sticks. I have the PN58C7000 and the correct file. i have got into the service in several ways but always a fail. Every time I go into hotel menu I lose my settings as well, which is fine but frustrating as it wont upgrade.

All I can think of is I did upgrade for version 1037 from the tv, and this may have prevented the upgrade. i also did a factory reset from the service menu and tried again with the same fail result

Has anyone with my model had the same experience with trying this after installing 1037? Or maybe is there a way to downgrade that to earlier then try the usb again?

If it wont go I gues I can try the voltage fix but was hoping to avoid that. Everyone that seems to have down the firmware has had great success.
Any feedback appreciated
