Hello

Hi

You said you just got cable , is there a cable box and cable remote with that ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
i have a receiver that was added to stream cable and i have the remote for that receiver

O.k then leave the tv on and turn off the cable box , does that 5 go away ?

Ask Your Own TV Question

O.k then that's not cable but satellite

Ask Your Own TV Question

what is the last picture , is it with he receiver off ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
i turned off the receiver but the 5 is still there

O.k then give me a minute please

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Ok it only goes away when i use the applications on the tv such as netflix and such.

Is this a new tv as well ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
i got it a few weeks ago.

O.k and this has been there ever since you got it ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No this popped up today after the installation of the receiver

How where you getting your tv channels prior to this ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I had non, so just used internet for netflix and hulu.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
But now even if i turn off the receiver its still popping up. Which is weird

Lets try something a little more stringent

I would assume the receiver is connected to the tv with a HDMI cable , leave the tv on and pull that cable off either at the tv or receiver and see if it is still there ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I took the HDMI off and still there

O.k then we know its not the receiver

Just for a test can you try to plug into say HDMI 2 and set the tv there ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Moved it to HDMI 2 and still there ��

Sorry but I can`t find nothing on that and this is rather odd

Only close reference would be about the favorites which are numbered 1 to 5 but then again I think it has to do with the channels it receives itself so that would be redundant here

Call Samsung customer support at 1-800-SAMSUNG and see what they have to say on that ?

Let me know , in the mean time I will look a few things on this including a full reset perhaps

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Ok i will call

Another way of doing this would be to use the TV's remote management option , they would remotely get into your tv

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Samsung said it might be the receiver

LOL I can hardly see how it would do that if it is not plugged into the tv !!??

Want to try a system reset ?

That should not touch your hub setting but I cannot guarantee so at worse you would have to redo your internet connect

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I told them the HDMI cable was the only thing connecting them and they said since the receiver is not samsung they couldnt see what it would be

I mean even with the hdmi cable pulled off you could see that , is that correct ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I had to step out of my home, how can i try that later?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
even with it off it was still there

O.k then there is no way that receiver is the culprit then

Here is how to reset your tv , let me type this down , I`ll be just a minute

Ask Your Own TV Question

Press the HOME button on the TV's remote and select the SETTINGS ((gear icon) , open that and select SUPPORT , open that and select SELF DIAGNOSIS , open that and select RESET then enter 0000 when asked for the pin and follow the prompts

Settings >>>Support>>> Self Diagnosis >>> Reset >>> 0000

Ask Your Own TV Question

I believe in this model you will have a choice of full reset including the hub or just system reset leave the hub alone if you can just reset the system

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Ok i will try when i get home

You were not home earlier ?

Or when you come back you mean ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
i was i had to step out

O.k then let me know what that does and if this is not working then something wrong with this tv , you may have to call Samsung again to get their service info

Usually for a tv this size they will send you a service tech. or at least give you info on their closest ASC

Also you can come back at any time without additional charges if you have further questions or need help and it gets this independent tech. paid for his time helping you .
