Here's some not-so-surprising news. Samsung no longer advertises any Slimfits or CRTs on their website. The Slimfit product pages are now only in their support sites. A week ago, they only had the small 20" TXT2082 advertised in the now-defunct Slimfit page.

I have the panasonic slimfit hdtv don't remember the model(2xhdmi,2xcomponent, etc)
I bougth it for 250us.
The image is not that greath(compared to my sony and panasonic hdtv)
the problem that i have is that is not saving my seetings, whenever i change them they go back to VIVID with cool temp color , after 10+ minutes.
Do you guys know if this is expensive to fix?
i dont like cool temp on tv's(or warm)
Also do you guys know if there is any purpose in the USB port on the back of the tv(upgrade firmware?)
The resetting settings sound like it's stuck in Shop Mode.
Shut off the TV, wait a few seconds, then point the remote at the TV and push Mute, 1, 8, 2, then Power.
In one of the Option menus look for an option named "Shop Mode" then push Enter on the remote to change the mode from On to Off.
Push Menu to go back to the main service menu, then push Power on the remote to turn off the TV, then push it again to turn it back on.
This should stop the TV from resetting its settings every half-hour.
Yes, the USB port in the back is for potential firmware updates. I really doubt there will be an update anytime soon.

It doesn't seem like it's messing anything up, but it's a little annoying. Has anyone else had this issue and what can you do to fix it?
Also it's still under warranty, but I don't want to make a service call. I'm sure the day will come when something goes wrong with my set and they can't fix it. Then they will give me something else. Which is exactly what I don't want.
thanks for any help.
Does this zapping noise occur when your tuning to an analog channel, digital channel, or both?
My TV has an odd electric sound whenever I turn it on and it goes to a digital channel. Occasionally it'll say "Searching for Signal" for a second then go to the channel. Other than that I've had no TV problems relating to that noise.

Useless fact : there is an option in the service menu to increase or decrease the volume of the melody. Unfortunately, this option doesn't affect the melody volume in any way.
