Accessing the Service Menu on your Samsung TV with the Smart Remote

Today’s Samsung TVs have compact Smart remotes, dubbed “One Remote.” These TVs have two different menus: the standard menu, accessed via the settings button, and the engineering menu, also known as the secret or hidden menu. The hidden menu is usually accessed through a sequence of button presses on the universal remote control, which is remote with buttons (0-9).

The Smart remote control can also be used to access a specific section of the hidden menu known as the “Main Menu.” This menu allows users to customize various settings for greater flexibility. Changes made here are not critical and will not harm the TV. 

However, it is essential to note that any adjustments made in this menu cannot be reset to factory default settings using the standard reset option available in the normal menu. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep track of any changes made to return to the original settings if necessary.

Code to call up the secret menu (Main Menu only) using the Smart remote control 

To access the “Main Menu” using the Smart remote control, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on the TV and make sure the picture is displayed.
  2. Use the control wheel on the remote control to open the menu by pressing the Up, Down, and OK buttons.

This action will display a small menu in the upper left corner of the screen where you can change settings that affect the user’s interaction with the TV. Although this menu offers limited settings, they are essential for improving the user experience.

You can then change the available settings, for example, you can set which signal source will be activated when you turn on the TV, you can limit the volume level of the TV.
