Top Debug Menu: TDM


From SamyGO
Jump to: navigation, search

The hidden menu, accessible using special cable, so called ExLink.

Required steps to get to TOP debug menu:

TV service menu settings

  • In service menu, enable Debug mode for the RS232 port:
With TV switched off, press the following sequence on the remote:
  • UE,LE models:[INFO] [MENU] [MUTE] [POWER]
  • UN,UA models:[MUTE] 1 8 2 [POWER]
  • Enter the Control menu and set the value of the RS232 mode to Debug.
  • Once you're back to the main Service menu, you will have to power off the TV for normal operation.

Notice that your TV will reset RS232 mode back to UART when you install another firmware (no matter if it's older or newer).

ExLink cable

Terminal Connection Parameters

  • Use following connection parameters with your terminal-client ( e.g. putty, Kermit, Hyper Therminal or ZOC Terminal ):
Baudrate: 115200
Data bits: 8
Parity: none
Stop bits: 1
Flow Control: none

Start the terminal

Linux PC

On a Linux PC, install 'cu' (call up) tool from the uucp package and run

cu -l /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 115200

Windows PC

On a Windows PC, use Hyper Terminal or Putty.
After you have started PuTTY, follow the steps in the screen shots below.

Console unlock and TDM codes

First code unlocks console, the second is the key for TDM. NB you can`t see anything on terminal window until you unlock console. Means, you input first code blindy and just after you press ENTER, you will see what you type (e.g. code for TDM).

[ TOP Debug Menu ]

Navigation principles

choosing the number of submenu you get deeper in to chosen submenu.
If you need change values, usually you will see this:

Input Down(0)/Up(1)/Down100(2)/Up100(3)/Exit(99) > :

Means:
Every input of 0 you get netxt value of this setting.
Every input of 1 shows the value before.
After the right value is chosen, confirm your selected value with input of 99. This saves setting and exits current submenu.

AFAIK the 2 and 3 make same as 0 and 1.

Examples

As example: how to get in to Factory menu (Service menu, but accessible from ExLink cable).
TV: LE40B653T5W, but on other series the TDM is very similar...

If you need to change some option in service menu, you don`t need to enter this from remote control. Use ExLink instead ;)
