Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, The ads are generated by the TV itself- that is why the DVD player doesn't make a difference when it's disconnected. The TV is in "Store" or DEMO mode, and needs to be put into Home mode. It's the TV's way of "showing off" it's features. Please see the tutorial link below (click on it) to see how to get your Samsung out of Demo mode:
You will need the Samsung's original remote control for those steps as well in most cases, so get that handy.
If you need further assistance let me know. PLEASE DO click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. That is how the site credits me for my work.
Do you need further assistance with this?
