Resolving Playstation issues with Samsung Tvs- Flickering Pictures

In our earlier post, we talked about the flickering issues experienced with a Samsung TV. We have been able to find a NO TOOL method i.e. no need to unscrew your TV.

To fix this issue follow the instructions below;:

With the TV in standby, press the {INFO} {MENU} {MUTE} {POWER} buttons on the remote (not together but one after the other). Remember to point the remote toward the InfraRed light on the TV.

Once the TV comes back on, you will see the service menu table. Look for Control> Config Option> Spread Spect>Turn It off. (See image below)

Spread Spect

Exit the Service Menu and connect the Playstation to the TV.

You can now enjoy playing your favourite games and HD content without experiencing any flickering.

Get The Windows Start Button Back on Windows 8

Note: The below information applies to the original release of Windows 8. If you update to Windows 8.1 Microsoft has added the Start button that will give you the ability to get to the Start Screen. This doesn’t return the Start Menu, but if you’re ok with the Start Screen and just want the Start button we recommend getting Windows 8.1. If you have Windows 8.1 or want the Start Menu follow the below steps.

Microsoft is committed to having everyone use the Start screen instead of the Start button and start menu found in previous versions of Windows and therefore has no setting to enable or disable the start button. (more…)
