I've never gone into a service menu before. Here's how it works for me.

1. Try to do it myself.
2. TV turns into the most boring painting ever.
3. Sticks show up in the mail the next day.

What was your final logic board software version?
post #124 of 1615
Larry, so just for reassurance, it is possible to update the logic board SW to correct the FBr even with a current firmware on a D7000 of 1015.0?

Also, you said in your post that 'ruSamsungTVCommunicator' must be used to apply the update, but isn't it just used to easily access the service menu? Can you perform the update by entering the service menu using the mute 182 method or does that not work because you have to start with the power off?

Yes you can apply it with firmware 1015.0, this avoids a rollback.

Instructions are in the OP. the "factory" button on ruSamsungTVCommunicator must be used to enable a hidden area in the SM to do the update.

Ok makes sense, thanks Zoyd!
post #127 of 1615
Zoyd,

can you give some more info on how to use the emulator? i downloaded it but not sure what to do with it. i unzip it and open the icon that looks like a computer and it opens a YES/NO window thats in German and a Notepad.

Once you have the emulator installed and the TV recognizes it, open the Fernbedienung tab. You will see a software version of the remote with one very important difference -- the addition of a button named Factory.



You can control the TV by clicking on the emulator buttons just like a normal remote.

To get into the service menu mode that shows the normally hidded functions, click the Info then the Factory buttons. That's it.

Mac or windows. Not on wireless but can be.

I just want to chime in here and say that zoyd is a genius. I was not able to get optimization or the logic board update with the firmware sent to me by samsung (1024.8 for the PN64D8000). I just followed his instructions to a "T" to update only the logic board, and it worked successfully.

I then watched a few scenes from The Mentalist and Shark Tank where I previously saw pops prior to the logic board update, and I don't see them anymore at all. I even watchd the black and white test clip and did not see Fbr on the side bars either. I plan on watching more tv tonight but so far so good!!!!

Should I never update my tv to ensure I keep these settings?

ATTN - Zoyd comfirmed no black level change so update away please
post #137 of 1615
Thank you Larry and Zoyd! Got it figured out and updated.

Software Version: T-MST5AUSC-1015.0, BT-G

Logic SW Version: 11-11-04 (11-05-06 before update)
Logic SW CheckSum: 0xE09B (0xD277 before update)

Checked for known pops in The Dark Knight and Two Towers, and all are no longer there (or can't been noticed by eye)!

Brian, here's how I think you can get the emulator to work through wi-fi, I kinda winged it using the google translate and eventually got it to work.

1. Make sure both your computer and TV are on the same network.
2. Make sure Network Remote Control is set to on on TV.
3. Open the emulator and select 'Aktionen', then select 'Samsung TV auswahlen'. I'm pretty sure this goes through an automatic process to try to locate the TV.
4. A message should pop up on the TV asking if you want to allow a network remote, select allow.
5. On the computer a pop-up will come up showing the TV network IP address, select 'Abbruch / Ende' and you should be all set, the program may close, just reopen it to use the emulator.

You may come to a screen where you can manually input the IP address (IP adresse in German) of the TV into the emulator, you can find the IP address of the TV easily under network status on the TV.

Hopefully that works for you like it did for me!

Thanks flash. I'll have to wait to try some more but I have a feeling that either it will be a while before the two USB's come or they won't work so I really want to get this to work. I might have to wait till Friday. I'll report back.

Hey guys, I have a couple of questions on the logic update

Do I change the entire file 64DS_ITO_Deepblack.bin to LOGIC.bin
Or do I change it to 64DS_ITO_LOGIC.bin

Will this reset all of my calibration settings?

Thanks

I've gotten this far and can establish a wireless communication with the emulator but when I press the info then factory buttons it pops up not available on the TV and then doesn't do anything so I can't proceed to the next steps? Any thoughts?

EDIT: nevermind got it to work after rebooting the emulator

Change the filename 64DS_ITO_Deepblack.bin to LOGIC.bin.

If you enter the service mode which is necessary for all but the D8000 models, the user settings will revert to default.

Ok - finally got it to work, the emulator program was trying to tell me that it was being blocked by my firewall settings...but I don't read German so we were having communication difficulties. Got that resolved and did the manual flash and now the logic board data reads 11-11-04 as it should. I will report back later as to what effect I have seen with the brightness pops, thanks a bunch to Larry, zoyd, and all the others that have been fighting this problem.

Thanks Larry,

Now if I can just get the emulator to connect to my tv. I'll figure it out.

I was having a hard time getting the emulator to connect to my tv. #2 "Make sure Network Remote Control is set to on on TV," did the trick. Thanks for the info, I would have gone crazy trying to figure this out.

Here is my info. 64D7000

Before
Logic SW Version 11-06-07
Logic SW CheckSum 0x2E12
T-MST5AUSC-1015.0

After
Logic SW Version 11-11-04
Logic SW CheckSum 0x3796
T-MST5AUSC-1015.0

@Randroid - did you upgrade just your logic board on the 550 or was that a full firmware upgrade?
post #147 of 1615
I apologize if this has been asked (I didn't see it),

If I have my PN64D7000 on an old firmware (I've never updated it)- can I just slap this firmware on a USB stick and run the update as normal, or do I still need to run the Samsung Communicator and all that?

Thanks!

you can try the normal full firmware update and then check your logic board version. If that didn't update then follow the directions to update the logic board in the OP
post #149 of 1615
Damnit zoyd beat me to it...
post #150 of 1615
Has anybody tried Zoyd's manual logic board flash on a d550? Mine didn't optimize and I don't have the latest version. From the above contacting samsung is pointless as they won't fix it so I figured I might as well try before calling them.

Mike
