Good price for a decent size / brand TV, provided you don't need or want smart TV or 3d capabilities

No freeview hd

No freeview hd



It doesn't have 4 channels, avoid (_;)

I got one of these a few months back. The inbuilt freeview quality was pretty bad quality, but I connected up my Virgin Media HD box by HDMI and the picture is now crystal clear, even the non-HD channels are excellent quality. If you have a FreeviewHD box, or use Sky or Virgin Media for watching TV, for £300 I would recommend this TV in a heartbeat.

The TV has a USB port, but it normally only plays back pictures+music, and not videos.

But if you go into the service menu, you can enable the usb to play videos too.
I have done this and now the TV plays all videos back perfectly, even HD mkv and mp4 files. Even supports separate subtitles files (But cant remember if it was .sub or .srt files)

Instructions:
1. Access the service menu by pressing (in succession) Info, Menu, Mute, and then Power (on remote) when the TV is in stand-by.
2. In the Service Menu select Option, then arrow down to Model and select.
3. Then select model D5005 by using left/right arrow keys.
4. Exit by pressing return key twice, Then power off the TV, then back on again.
The TV should now have video playback from usb.

My TV did not have the D5005 option, but I selected UD5005 and that worked perfectly.
Make a note of the initial model setting it was at default, in case you ever need to change it back for any reason. (Mine was "LD503" initially)

Only drawback of doing this was this TV only has 2 HDMI ports. But when you do this, it lists 4 HDMI ports in the Source menu. But it does not affect functionality at all, just ignore the other 2 HDMI options, as they obviously do not work.

Also, I have spent a long time adjusting to get the best image quality settings (in my opinion). Ive uploaded pics of them for anybody that wants to use them. The default settings are terrible!

Thankyou so much!, I have the led version 40" and out of the box the picture sucked!, it gave me a right headache!, now adjusted it to your values and is much better thanks!.

Shows out of stock for me in the north east and home delivery.

It's a bloody crap TV. Bought it and returned it in a week. And I'm certainly not a videophile

Would avoid. Pay a bit more

Can I turn the samsung le40d503 into a smart tv?
