    Default Fault on a Samsung tv

    I have a 40" smart samsung tv which has a really weird fault. The screen is displaying things incorrectly and is in some places inverted.



    I have tried replacing the tconn, av and mains board but the fault remains. It didnt seem like a panel fault as it displays the logo with vibrant colours when i turn it on.

    Anyone got any ideas or is it goosed?

    can you try and do a factory reset on the tv, google might be able to help you further.

    It may not be a fault. Have you had it connected to your PC and pressed some keys by accident? May work if you connect it to your PC and press Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow to return the screen to normal. Tv's that are designed to be used with a PC will have the function of flipping the screen built in.

    Failing that you could mount it upside down and use a mirror to view it (">

    Edit: That TV may also have 'HV flip' as a menu item in the factory settings page. What is the exact model of TV?
