    Hi, can anyone help. I have a 2 .5 year old Samsung CI523 25"
    television. Worked fine, until my young son pressed a series of
    buttons on the remote control. The tv has now changed all settings on
    the menu. I cannot get all of the menu back, I managed to tune the
    video back, but the sound has gone completely. I personnaly think that
    it has set itself up as a 21" french TV. The picture is smaller and I
    cannot change the setting in the function menu at all, the settings
    show pal/secam instead of pal and I think the sound has gone to PAL g
    istead of PAL I. I live in the UK. If memory serves correct I remember
    that threre are factory default settings that can be reached to change
    the set back to normal state.I'm getting to the point where its going
    out the window soon and I cannot afford £500 for a new one. Help.

    Many thanks

    I would think a call to a local TV repair shop could help you sort it out
    over the phone, at no charge.

    Find out the Samsung service rep for your area. They will sort this out for
    you. If it is not a failure in the set that requires service, they should
    be able to help you over the phone. There may be a sequence to re-set your
    user settings, and the set will work again. We are servicing some models of
    equipment, where there is a master user reset, and all is working normal
    again.

    As your son have discovered, the samsung service mode is very easy to
    get in, via remote's buttons pressed in right sequence, one after
    another. Get tv brought in at samsung authorized shop.

    Most of other brands requires combined two or more buttons pressed at
    same time in right order so it's harder to mess up.

    Cheers,
