We have a Samsung LED TV Model UE40ES5500KXXU 40" screen purchased

Resolved Question:

We have a Samsung LED TV Model UE40ES5500KXXU 40" screen purchased 18/02/13. We have recently been getting a blank green screen and up to now the only way we can sort it is by switching off at the mains. Is there another more permanent solution

We have had from first installing the tv a dvd player connected and also a Humax, none have been a problem at all. Its only in the last few weeks we have occasionally had the green screen problem.

No, we very rarely use the dvd player and when we have the green screen has never come on.

Hi

So its only happening when you use the humax?

Thatb tells me you have a problem with the humax box and NOT the set, have you checked the lead from the humax to the TV is good or better still if its HDMI replace it, also try rebooting the humax box by unplugging it from the wall waiting 5 mins then replugging the box back in again, may be best to do both the TV and the box at the same time, these intermittent issues are usually lead problems or glitchy firmware in the box OR TV rebooting can correct that, its my best bet in your case that its either the humax HDMI lead assuming your using that \glitchy firmware in the box itself (rebooting may fix this\or the box itself is going bad

Let me know if you need more info
