Needing Some Parameters From Your TV........Samsung LN55B650

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So before I start let me say this. Yes, I messed around in my service menu and didn't take pictures before I mad the changes. Yes, I know I shouldn't have messed around in the service menu unless I knew what I was doing and I know I should have taken pictures before I made changes. Yes, I was a idiot. Yes, I do get what I deserve....but haven't we all made stupid mistakes?

Now that we are clear that I was in the wrong, lets move on!!!

So, I have this really bad audio to video lag (audio after picture) problem on my Samsung LN55B650 and the other night it was so bad that I stopped Watchman halfway through the movie and pulled up my service menu and started making some adjustments to the delays (please read or re-read above before condemning me). After I was done changing some of the parameters on the TV the lag was better but still not perfect. So I adjusted the delay on my AVR (Denon DHT-591) and got it almost perfect, but it is still enough lag that you can notice it (i could live with it, but its annoying). So here is what I need from any of you that own a Samsung LN55B650.

All the parameters that are set to zero in this picture had higher numbers until I changed them. The parameters that are set to zero are the parameters that I need the factory settings on.



So if anyone can give me the factory settings off there Samsung LN55B650, I would be forever in your debt. If I can get those parameters back it will not cost me as much to have a Samsung service tech come out and see if they can fix the lag problem (yes, i'm trying to cover my butt)

The odd part about this whole thing is, all of my equipment is HDMI 1.3 and everything runs into the AVR for processing. I have taken the AVR in and had it looked at and everything was perfect (the same with my Blu-Ray Player). So the only thing I can come up with is that makes any logical sense is that the TV, is having a delay when it tries to process the picture. If I run the HDMI into my other cheaper and smaller TV the audio to video sync is perfect (again, everything is being processed through the AVR). But as soon as I plug the Samsung back in, the audio to video sync is way off (even when i plug straight into the TV from the Blu-Ray Player, the audio to video is still not synced properly). Anyways, any help would be great with regards to the factory/default setting in the "AUDIO" setting in the service menu.

You're asking one of us to walk down the road of possible (probable) disaster with our perfectly working tvs so we can maybe fix yours. I'm an overall nice person but there is no way I can logically risk killing my great B650 for your obvious mistake, taken with full knowledge of the consequences. Sorry. And good luck.

Going into your service menu is NOT going to ruin your TV. Going into your service menu and and messing around with parameters and not knowing what they do and not taking pictures of them WILL ruin your TV. I'm not asking anyone to ruin there working TV's (also, my TV still works and works with flaws like it did before messing with it). Going into the service menu and clicking on the AUDIO section and taking a picture of the factory settings and sending them to me is all I'm asking. The only thing you will have to do (once goin into the service menu) is reprogram your TV back to the way you had it before (from the user menu of corse, not the service menu). I find it so weird and almost rude how people think that because a person entered there service menu they are contaminated or something!! We are home theater gurus just like you and we make mistakes sometime and need help fixing our mistakes. I think all of us that have made mistakes have learned and the last thing we want our fellow gurus is to make the same mistake we did!

I agree with mes444. It's just way too easy to brick your set while in the SM, as you have seen. Most people here would probably like to really help you but asking someone to enter those waters is too much to ask. Don't mean to sound rude but a "home theater guru" would have never gone into the SM without one, knowing exactly what he was doing and two, taking all of the necessary precautions.

Okay, I'm starting to get a little irritated. I reach out to my fellow Home Theater people and all I get is reprimanded! I know I was wrong and everything else that goes along with going into the service menu. Do any of you realize that you can go into your service menu with out "bricking" your TV? Why does everyone think I'm telling you to brick your TV? If that had happened by just going into your service menu, this would be a completely different posting about how to never go into your service menu or you will brick your TV!!! All I'm asking for is some help. If you have a Samsung LN55B650, could you go into the service menu and go to the AUDIO settings and get the factory settings so I can put them back into my TV. Also, if you don't want to help me out then hold off on the "you get what you deserve" type of comments. Once I send the TV into Samaung or have Samsung come out and fix it (the audio to video lag that was there before i went into the service menu), I will go back into the service menu and get those setting and post them to this posting so someone else can successfully fix there TV if this happens to them. Not trying to step on toes or get kicked off the forum but when every reply has been on the lines of "you get what you deserve" instead of "let me see what I can do to help you out", I start to get frustrated.

How many times must I say this, I'M NOT ASKING ANYONE TO BRICK THERE TV. YOU WILL NOT BRICK YOUR TV BY GOING INTO YOUR SERVICE MENU!!!! Also, I understand none of you "owe" me anything (i do not ever recall telling anyone they owe me something). I'm asking for help, plain and simple. I messed up and I need help fixing my mistake :-)

Dewd, relax. We know you're not asking anyone to brick their tv. If just that no one probably wants to access their SM and take a chance that something could go wrong just because you asked for help.
