Passcode locked - impossible to reset!


The actual TV unit and functions are pretty good but someone has managed to set a passcode to operate the TV and I’ve been through the manual and can’t work out how to reset it so we can’t use the TV!

Purchased in December 2020 at Bing Lee Physical store.

Poor Quality


Purchased this TV in Feb 2018, every time you turn on the tv, the picture and sound becomes a little jittery or the picture freezes and occasionally, doesn't sync which has only gotten worse as time goes by.
Samsung used to be good but like many other manufacturers when they get popular, their quality diminishes.

Purchased in February 2018 at Appliance Online for $539.00.

White Dots appear on my Samsung TV


I purchased a 55 inch Samsung TV in Dec 2014 picture quality is great however I now have 2 bright white dots appearing on the screen. Have called Samsung & they have advised that whilst we can have the TV looked at it will be at our cost as the TV is outside of warranty period. Similar other threads on-line suggest that this isn’t an isolated issue.

Nice quality screen but fiddly remote


Received this Samsung 43" TV as a Xmas present. Pros: has great picture quality & sound; easy to watch Youtube/Netflix etc. Cons: screen size little small; remote very tiny making it fiddly to operate.

Could be better


I recently bought a Samsung 32"smart TV to replace a 37 year old NEC 68cm CRT.
The picture quality is ok with plenty of ways to improve it. However the zoom feature in the picture menu is greyed out and I have no idea how to make it work. I have wide screen DVD's that have black bar top and bottom and I want to use the zoom feature to get rid of the bars but I have no idea how to.
Sound is average although my Mac PC's sound is a whole lot better. A separate theater sound system may need to be bought to improve the sound.
The TV has two USB ports. Two HDMI ports plus the standard red, white and yellow RCA sockets.
Connecting to the internet of this "smart" TV was a breeze and there are many apps to choose from.

TV Glamour


The picture quality is top-notch, there is no doubt about it. The sound quality from the speakers you will find no glaring criticism for. With enough ports for HDMI, and even USB sticks, being a smart TV of course, allows for more options.

Its operation system, however, is slow to start, and even crashes from time to time which is disappointing.
