Software for generating Samsung "TransponderDataBase.dat" and
"SatDataBase.dat" for the ES800x.
Samsung never updates these files and now that 28.2E has been changed
completely it is impossible to tune in the channels. So I made a small
program that converts Dreambox satellites.xml to Samsung files. It's recommended to shorten the sat name in the satellites.xml file.
Just backup your channel list on the TV to USB memory "*.scm".
The file is a zip file so just copy the to generated files into the scm
file, Just say yes to overwrite existing files and load the backup to
the TV, turn off the TV and on again and you got the new
TransponderDataBase. You now have to do all satellite setup and search all the channels again.
Allways remember to make a backup of the original Samsung file.
Shuts OFF and ON FIX !
If your tv shuts off and on, then is normal for a couple seconds then goes to colourful lines and patterns the fix is easy.
Take the back panel off your tv, find the ribbon cable that goes from powerboard to motherboard.
It's ribbon #20. You'll note on the power side there's likely discoloration around some of the pins.
The best way to repear it is by soldering two wires from backside of connector on Powerboard and to the cable #20.
It's just the two end ones and it is easy to do.
This is what the screen can look like with error.
Motherboard is on the left and powerboard is on the right.
Here you se the burned connector on the powerboard.
Like a heart bypass I have made a plug bypass and this will last a lifetime.
