Here are the "enter-SM" instructions for the HLN sets. They are the same for a HLP set but the contents of the SM and navigation keys may be different. I haven't checked the navigation instructions myself.
Be careful if you do go into the SM. Then you should go "slow" and "taper off". Find Samsung Firmware Version:
The firmware version installed on any set is recorded on the first page of the SM. There is a long ID number at the bottom of the page. The last three digits are the firmware version of your set.
Remember that in any dealing with Samsung you are not supposed to know your firmware version.Instructions for accessing the Samsung Service Menu:
Anyone using these suggestions should know that I am passing on the wisdom of others and that I have no personal knowledge of the Samsung DLP TVs. I'm still waiting.
On the other hand I can recommend, without any reservations, recording all original SM settings before making changes.****** Thanks to LCH. 09/02/2003 ******
Turn Melody off in the user menu (allows entering the Service Menu from power On state without using a lamp cycle).
With the set ON, press Power-Mute-1-8-2-Power in quick succession.
(If the set is already off, just do Mute-1-8-2-Power )
The service menu should appear for the input you were viewing before keying the above sequence. Be sure to give the set enough time to complete the process(30-60 seconds).
While in the service menu, you can change inputs with the TV/Video button to view the SM for other modes.
Use the CH up, CH down & select keys to navigate the Service Menu. Press MENU to return to the main Service Menu after viewing individual functions.
Later, you will use the VOL(+) & VOL(-) keys to change the SM values." ... when you access the SM on the 5063 (HLP models), the directional arrows around the "Enter" button control navigation, not the volume and channel buttons ..." MacGyver1970.
To Exit the SM, power off. Leave it off for several(30) seconds. (until all cooling activity is complete)
