    I want to enable the usb-video playback on my b550.
    Month ago I have upgraded the firmware.
    MODEL: LE40B550A5WXXH
    VERSION: SQ02

    ONSCREEN info-box (MENU-SUPPORT-SOFTWARE UPDATE-INFO):
    SW ENGINE: T-CHELEU-1017,MODULE:T-CHL5DEUC-2009.0,
    DATE:2010-01-25
    MICOM:T-CHL5DEUS-1005, SDAL-4.2.27-0201QRFS:28_64_256-28 T-CHL5DEUC

    I have read the instructions, but I`m not sure what to do. The wiselink option is grey, so I must to change the model to b650. Is that safe?

    Oke, my first post.
    Had the same problem, i changed my model number in the service menu, then it started rebooting over and over again.

    I looked here for a solution, but after reading all the messages (took me over one day) i could not find a solution for it. and thought i bricked my tv.:facepalm:
    Allot of people with the same problem (not reading carefully)

    I found a rather complex and risk-full solution, but being stupid as i am i tried it and it worked!!
    be very careful!

    Here is what i did;
    - Disconnect the power cable
    - (if you use a CI+ PMCIA card)remove the CI+ module
    - Remove all the screws form the back-end (12, I guess)
    - Remove the cable on the mainbord (see image down below)
    - Plugin the powercable (TV is now on standby)
    - Insert the code for getting into the service menu (info+menu+mute+standby)
    - the tv starts and the service menu shows up.
    - Now carefully connect the the lcd cable back to the main board. (be very careful)
    - Voila, here is the service menu back on screen
    - Now, recover the model number (eg LB550)
    - now save, by pressing the power-button (your tv shuts down)
    - As in a test turn on the tv and see if its working again.
    - Turn of the tv and remove the powercable
    - Place the backend together with screws

    Its working again! :):thumbsup:

    See the mainbord cable disconnected down below.

    for the dutch people, this is were i found my solution;

    Ok, I'm completely lost here!!!
    My tv is LE40B550A5WQXU. I've tried installing the latest firmware from samsung(T-CHL5DEUC_2010.1_Step2.exe) And then it just keeps saying no file found. I've installed it onto the USB stick and done it by the book.
    I have no options to unlock the video settings in sub options and have tried changing to b650 and still the same.

    My current firmware is 2009/06/26_001001???

    Have included some pics...please help!:thumbsup:

    After doing a bit more reading i've just tried the T-CRLPEUWC firmware and it worked. I take it this means i cannot watch MKV files or any other video files with this TV due to it's chipset?

    Yep, that's the way it is. I read up on this for ages, only chips that can do video are the Chelsea (CHL firmware). The Coral (CRL firmware) chips can't. Sorry.

    For My friend " Painluck "

    I hope that you visit the forum regularly and do read my message. Bcz I had a very bad accident and was hospitalized for 8 months. Now I'm back and sending you the message. I hope that you still got the B530 lcd bcz I'm almost there to enable atleast divx support on my lcd.

    But first I've a tip for you. You told me that you didn't have the option to play mp3 music and jpeg picture. right. but I researched the internet and found a tip which I think can atleast enable wiselink jpeg and mp3 support for you.

    If I remember correctly your firmware version is T-CRLPEUFC or something similar . Sorry I didn't remember and I didn't went to the forums to read the exact firmware name of your lcd.

    Now here is the trick I download the service manuals of the LEB530 models and found that when You enable the " Shop Mode " in the service menu you get two more options beneath it and those are " USB DEMO " and one other USB option. I think that you can even try to play movie with this trick if it works on your lcd model. because this option was designed by Samsung for the Shop owners to display pictures, music and even movie demos to customers in shop.

    I think you have a chance. By the way I fought with samsung through e-mail and they finally gave me the real firmware of my LCD B530. it is a bin file and not available on any other website. It is uploaded to your LCD through MSTAR software jig and MSTAR software. I have all the necessary tools downloaded with me and waitng to share an ocean of information with you. But waiting for your reply.

    And A Happy new year my friend and wishing you that you and I will get the movies working atleast divX movies.

    painluck, Do you have the same 3.5mm service jack at the back of your lcd. If yes then tell me have you constructed the ex-link cable to have serial connection to the lcd.? I've successfully connected to the LCD Linux boot loader in the lcd with the ex-link cable. But to dump the firmware of our LCD's is a whole different procedure as described in Samy go forums for the latest TV's .

    But that method did helped me and it was because of the people at SamyGo that showed us the way and guided us with everything.

    Okay. 1st I want you to tell me that is your LCD firmware available on the samsung website to download ?/ if yes then:

    1. Download it.

    2. open it with Notepad ++ (absolutely FREEE)

    3. Extract the firmware to a folder.

    4. open the .bin file with the notepad ++ probably with the name " Merge.bin " or what ever the name of the bin file.

    5. the file will be opened in the Notepad ++ and you will see some ridiculous unreadable code but also some readable english text.

    6. Now search for the word " Wiselink " without the quotes.

    7. you will definitely see the word wiselink several times with jpg and mp3 word. If you find it then your tv definitely has the capability for enabling the jpeg and mp3 music support for now.

    Try these steps and do tell me.

    And also I've opened my LCD and took pictures of my main board i'll send it to you after you reply me bcz I want to know that you still do visit the forum.:thumbsup:

    for najamkhan, good to have you back, I'm glad.

    I was able to get play on my mp3 and photos b530, firmware is different, and part of "High Devi" stay and off. Just change the model b550 and it worked without changing anything else. And the options I have less than you, and leaving blackened and can not be modified.

    a query: b530 have their digital tuner?, why not mine, and I see no option to enable it.

    If you know anything about how play movies would be appreciated.

    excuse my English. I'm from Chile.

    pd: I try the "shop mode" but nothing happens, as I found online on the "shop mode" has to do something more with the colors, and thus have fewer options for editing.

    try setting other than b550 models, such as b550_m_NM, something, and des-configure all, so no more edit. There's also a "hotel mode", where he said something to usb, but did not dare to edit, because it started to have problems with the lcd sound.

    Hi guys,

    I have a problem with my CI+ device and I also would like to do this tweak, but with my current firmware that isn't possible.

    The T-CHL5CIPDEUC-2005.2 firmware would solve my problems, would someone please upload this firmware? It will help me a lot!

    Btw, is it possible to downgrade 2009.2 to 2005.2?

    Thanks in advance:)

    it's possible but the risks involved far outweigh the reward

    user 'smartsmurf' over at the samygo forums created a dca module that needs to be installed onto the TV, latest version 0.3 is reported to be working very well

    i did a lot of reading last night and have decided not to take the risk which would involve patching original firmware then flashing it with a calculated risk of bricking the TV (the other route is using an ex-link cable which I can't get hold of anywhere)

    the samygo wiki pages are very useful but have defeated me for now, my model/firmware/chipset etc should have a content library option but it's non existent so this has completely thrown me off

    i'll read some more and may come back to it at some point, with any success i'll write a tutorial

    On a much brighter note I don't have the 'restarting problem' anymore thanks to the samygo wiki pages I just did this:

    Change Option "Wiselink WithOut DB" to "Wiselink With DB" in the service menu AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    Hi, I've been lurking on this forum for a good long while but never signed up as I've always had enough forums to participate in with my astronomy interest.

    I had an LE40B550AW right back from the early days of this thread (part 1 that is) and spent 2 happy years watching my AVIs & MKVs with the info from this thread.

    A few weeks ago my main AVboard died and I bought another from here Search Results : Flat TV Parts, LCD TV Parts, LCD TV Spares, Plasma Parts Spares and swapped it out.

    Trouble is the new board has the 2008 firmware on it and no previous version. :facepalm: Is there any way to get it to play video via USB without changing the model number to 650? (I.e. by getting hold of an old 2003 firmware and uploading it) I'm a bit uncomfortable with doing the model number as It might be sending harmful signals to the screen related to the 100hz panel it is expecting. It is CHL5DEUC by the way - I checked in the service menu

    Cheers for any help

    Oh, and by the way. For anyone who's bricked their tv you can just buy a replacement AV board as that's where the eprom where the firmware lives resides (you might even luck out and find the older board with the old firmware on!) :smashin:

    Hi guys,

    Can somebody tell me what are the chances for enabling MKV support on my TV set? First of all, I have tried to enable Wiselink movie option, but it is grayed out.

    It's safe to change the tv model from B550 to B650? Is it 100% safe or could it brick the set eventually?

    I bought a Samsung LE32B550A5WXXH

    So, here are my TV's parameters:

    INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM SAMSUNG TV MENU:
    MODEL CODE: LE40B550

    T-CHELEU-1003.2
    T-CHL5DEUC-2007.0
    T-CHL5DEUS-1007
    SDAL-4.2.27-0190
    DATE: 2009-08-14
    MICOM: T-CHL5DEUS-1007, SDAL-4.2.27-0190, RFS:29_64_256-29 T-CHL5DEUC 2009-08-14
    Date of purchase 4/1/2010
    Thanks.

    hello all,

    after reading part 1 and 2 of this thread i got afraid to brick my TV.
    but just when i decided to let it go, i wanted to try 1 thing.

    type : LE40B550A5PXXN
    i did a FW update to 2009
    and i changed the model to B650

    [​IMG]

    WISELINK MOVIE is still grey but is set to ON :thumbsup:

    [​IMG]

    i hooked up a 500GB HD with all kind of movie formats and they all played well.

    [​IMG]

    another extra is picture-in-picture
    I'm really happy with the result
    only negative is that the startup time has increased to +/- 30 sec

    Hi guys,

    i successfully changed my model number to b650 and now i have mkv/divx play enabled. There is a small problem though, after changing the model number i started receiving this annoying advertisement of series 6 capabilities on the left side of the screen. Every time i switch a channel and it pops up. Any idea how to disable it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, fibershark, you are right. After some research i found out that my tv is in store demo mode.
    For those who might have the same problem -How to disable it - push volume button once up (on your tv, not the remote) and then hold menu button (again on the tv set) for several seconds, untill the screen mode changes to something else - standart, dynamic etc. You have to do it fast :)

    cheers, mates :)

    Hi JuanmAlone I have 40 inch series 5 LE40B551AWXXU TV, originaly i was not able to watch movies throught USB. After reading this forum I turned wiselink movies ,wiselink write and high defi on and it workd for a mkv file but then i upgraded my firmware to T-CHL5DEUC-2009.0 and then T-CHL5DEUC-2010.1 and now wiselink movies is disabled i have no option for reverting it back to the earlier firmware which was something like 2000. Can you please suggest something to get the functionality to be able to watch movies throught usb back. Are there any new features/benefits in these 2 latest firmware for my tv model LE40B551A6W
