I already feel that my TV has been kidnapped. I had to OK a fee of $28 to try to get this solved and now you want $26 more? Is this all some scam? I can't talk on the phone. My son is being interviewed in Uruguay this morning and I am on my other computer away from my tv to watch him
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

I'm sorry, I got phone call message from your so I send the phone call offer, it is not scam, ignore the phone call offer if you do not want it.

Yes let's get this done so I can watch my son's interview.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

OK, try following procedure please...

1- Go to TV Menu > System > Setup and navigate to Smart Hub Terms & conditions page.

2- Under Smart Hub Terms & conditions page uncheck the Sync plus and Marketing option, then Complete setup.
3- After the Setup, unplug TV power cord for 5 minutes, replug the TV and turn it On, hopefully it will stop the adds related to Sync plus.
Please be sure that you have exited the SyncPlus screen in order to get to Setup in step 1. For step 3 you have to unplug the TV from the wall.

Please reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.

I went to tv menu via remote and there is no "system or set up as an option. A long list across the top - voice, picture, caption, network, etc. On left side of screen is a number pad,. Most of screen is still ad. Menu only stays up for a few seconds and then it is all ad again.

I'm back. We can see if anything will kill this stupid ad.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Unplugging my tv will take the physical help of 2 other people. The plug is inaccessible and my tv is on a shelf 5 1/2 feet off the floor. The shelf is enclosed on 4 sides. Only tv screen side is open for the screen. No way to reach plug without removing tv from the shelf. It will not turn for access. Is there any other way to get rid of this ad? Still can't see a picture, only the SyncPlus ad.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 year ago

Alternate way is to turn Off wall switch where TV power cord is plugged in or turn Off circuit breaker of area of TV to cut the supply for few minutes. After smart hub setup TV power must be cut off for few minutes so the setup change can take place and this is the only way to kill the syncplus ad.

Thanks.
