The microprocessor communicates with a large number of I
ICs in the set. To ensure good communication and to make
digital diagnosis possible, the microprocessor has to know
which ICs to address.
After changing the option number(s), save them by
pressing the "OK" button on the RC before the cursor is
moved to the left, select "STORE" in the SAM root menu
and press "OK" on the RC.
The new option setting is only active after the TV is
switched "off" / "standby" and "on" again with the mains
switch (the NVM is then read again).
From 2011 onwards, it is not longer possible to change
individual option settings in SAM. Options can only be changed
all at once by using the option codes as described in section
Option Code Overview
Refer to the rearcover sticker in the set for the correct option
Important: after having edited the option numbers as
described above, you must press OK on the remote control
before the cursor is moved to the left!
Opt. No. (Option numbers)
Select this sub menu to set all options at once (expressed in
two long strings of numbers).
An option number (or "option byte") represents a number of
different options. When you change these numbers directly,
you can set all options very quickly. All options are controlled
via eight option numbers.
When the NVM is replaced, all options will require resetting. To
be certain that the factory settings are reproduced exactly, you
must set both option number lines. You can find the correct
option numbers on the rearcover sticker from the TV set.
Example: The options sticker gives the following option
Group 1 : 08192 00133 01387 45160
Group 2 : 12232 04256 00164 00000
The first line (group 1) indicates hardware options 1 to 4, the
second line (group 2) indicate software options 5 to 8.
Every 5-digit number represents 16 bits (so the maximum value
will be 65536 if all options are set).
When all the correct options are set, the sum of the decimal
values of each Option Byte (OB) will give the option number.
Not all sets with the same Commercial Type Number (CTN)
necessarily have the same option code!
Use of Alternative BOM => an alternative BOM number usually
indicates the use of an alternative display or power supply. This
results in another display code thus in another Option code.
Refer to Chapter
Reset of Repaired SSB
A very important issue towards a repaired SSB from a Service
repair shop (SSB repair on component level) implies the reset
of the NVM on the SSB.
A repaired SSB in Service should get the service Set type
"00PF0000000000" and Production code "00000000000000".
Also the virgin bit needs to be set. To set all this, you can use
the ComPair tool or use the "NVM editor" and "Setup => TV
settings => General settings => Reinstall TV" (virgin mode).
After a repaired SSB has been mounted in the set (set repair
on board level), the type number (CTN) and production code +
12NC's (SSB, display and supply) of the TV has to be set
according the type plate of the set (no info on 12NC's here). For
this, you can use the NVM editor in SAM. This action also
ensures the correct functioning of the "Smart TV" feature and
access to the Smart TV portals. The loading of the CTN and
production code can also be done via ComPair (Model number
After a SSB repair, the original channel map can be restored,
provided that the original channel map was stored on a USB
stick before repair was commenced and that basic functionality
of the TV, needed for this procedure, was not hampered as a
result of the defect. The procedure of "channel map cloning" is
clearly described in the (electronic) user manual.
