All you have done is send me the Samsung User Manual which I have anyway, my issue has not being addressed,
Please respond
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 2 years ago.
NO its not just the manual you need to go down the page to the firmware upgrade so drop the page a bit and you will see FIRMWARE and underneath that the upgrade file and the guide is to the right of that.
If you can't do the upgrade yourself you have two choices ask someone who is computer literate to do it OR ask samsung to send you the usb flash but they may charge for that.
Jist to clarify what you are loking at is at the samsung site
