Hi
Does anyone know how you reset the operating system on a Samsung DVD-HR725 HDD Recorder? I understand it requires opening up and presumably connecting a jumper of some sort to clear a flash memory?
I need this because I must have entered the wrong country (too keen to get started) in the initial start up menu, and Samsung tell me that it requires returning to a service centre to be reset :eek:
Can anyone help?
Thanks

The following applies if you had forgot the password for parental supervision and it resets the unit to factory settings, it's worth trying.
It's on p131 of the user manual under troubleshooting.

Press and hold the >> button on the
front panel of the Recorder for more
than 5 seconds with no disc in the
unit. All settings including the
password will revert to the factory
settings. Do not use this unless
absolutely necessary. (Note that this
function is possible only when no disc
is inserted.)
