Hi. I followed the instructions on gosamy. If you search for Samsung eeprom reset you will get to it. Here is what I basically did:
1: dismantle the box , 6 screws and a bit of careful pulling of case to get board out.
2: look for eeprom , it is on opposite side of board from one of the main processing chips , however the way to find it is to get a magnifying glass and look at the chip reference numbers and quickly google them. It only took me about 5 mins to find it
3: organise yourself with the mains power switch for tv easily to hand. Place the board on the case , and with TV switched off connect the board to the tv
4: organise a means of shorting the 5&6 pins ( I used a knife ) , pin 1 is next to dot marked on EEPROM, pin 5 is diagnonally opposite and 6 is next to 5. Pull the EEPROM data sheet for visual confirmation
5: with 5&6 shorted , turn TV on ( at mains ) and wait for 60 secs. Release 5&6 , wait 10 secs. Turn tv mains off
6: turn tv on and see if it starts setup. This means EEPROM was reset. If not repeat.
Note. Do not run TV for long like this because it needs the fan on the board. Once you have confirmed reset. Turn tv off and rebuild sek-3500.
This is a very easy procedure but if you have never done anything like this before be very very careful. Don’t touch the components and be extra careful with what you use to short the pins. If you slip and short 5v rail to gnd the board is killed.
