    Looks like I have repaired a Samsung LE40M87BDX for a friend.
    They did not give me the remote and I want to do a factory reset as I have no digital stations.

    Looks like I need the service menu but everything I read refers to using a remote.

    Thanks

    The service menu can't be accessed without the remote.

    Thanks, now have DTV though. Found 'Source' button on side and after selecting DTV I can tune in digital stations.
    One thing that seems odd though, is that when source is on Analogue then when I press Menu there is a full range of picture and sound settings but when TV source is on DTV and I press menu there are no picture and sound settings. I am referring to Menu when pressed on the side of the TV of course as I have no remote.

    Samsung TV's of that vintage have a separate “DTV” menu button on the remote giving various options.
