Customer Question

Samsung TV LE32R 87BDR
This tv had been disconnected at the main for 6 weeks. When first turned on it started perfectly but after being placed in standby, when restarted it had an odd colour picture which looked over contrast, like a negative with a predominantlty red tint.
After a reset, it now cannot find channels, it will scan but cannot find either analogue nor digital channels but, it does have the same odd picture via scart and hdmi.

Thanks for the pictures, I'm working on it and get back to you in 15 minutes.

Barry,
Do you have Samsung remote that came with the TV?
We need to go into service menu of TV for some data adjustment to figure out the issue.
Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes ok

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Nice, please do the following procedure with most care and at your own risk as any wrong move/ data adjustment can cause permanent damage and you may end up with a new main board in TV.
Problem seems with display panel (the screen) and we can try to adjust/change "panel type" to see if it helps to fix the picture problem. Please check following link to download 'alignment & adjustment' pdf file that has detailed info about how to access to service menu/ mode in TV and what buttons of remote will need to be used...

Please reply back with the result or if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.
Thank you.

I have the download and for the panel settings and can probably reset these ok.

There remains the issue of the inability to scan and lock any channels, can you please advise on this

Thanks

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
Barry,
Does TV display normal picture now after "panel type" change?
Thanks.
