LE40M87BD - Firmware


Standard Member
Hi there,

I've read on these forums that a firmware upgrade fixes the bugs - the one that annoys me is the skipping freeview that occasionally happens. I checked the firmware and I'm on 1007 (which I'm assuming is not the latest one?). I rang Samsung and they weren't too helpful to be honest. My friend had the previous model to this and Samsung even sent him a cable and CDR with a firmware on to upgrade the TV. Is this firmware available on the web - and then I could do it myself (borrowing the cable).

Any ideas? (and apologies if this has been posted many times).



Even if you could flash it yourself, would you really risk bricking a £1000 item? Flashing a £20 DVD-RW is one thing...

Can anyone let me know what you deduce from the figures in my service menu:

Thats all the yellow writing in the bottom left side.


Is it all ok?
