With the TV on, press "menu" (then release), that should bring up the menu screen.
press "1" (then release) nothing happens
press "1" (then release) nothing happens
press "4" (then release) nothing happens
press "7" (then release) Service menu gets overlaid on top of whatever running on your TV.
** other variations reported to work: MENU->8893, MENU->0000 and SOURCE->2580

Why is it only 85$?

If anyone has other tests they’d like me to perform I’ll have some free time this weekend to do so. At $85 in taxes and fees a “free” TV for the office/bedroom ain’t bad at all.

Anyhow, I set to dynamic, hooked up my Nvidia Shield and rogers 4k tv box. Looks great! Can't wait to see how the leafs game looks tonight. Also, this replaced a LG tv I had, and the LG remote worked with it. Maybe manufactured by LG?
So I live in Montreal, and I heard it was a special game. I am not a habs fan, but I don't know if you prefer how the leafs play, or the TV.

Good luck

BTW, unless you are stacking a 20x offer on top of the $350 you might want to consider the Haier for $450 at Costco, the $100 extra gives you 90 days refund/exchange, cheap warranty ($30 for 5 years) and Chromecast receiver.
I actually recommend hisense one (roku) that has been 499.99 a few times. I have the 65” model and it have been pretty good for 3 months (almost). Reviews by those who posted in the various hisense thread seems to be satisfied with it and of course its only $50 more (when on sale, which has been often) with all the perks you mentioned.

Only two reasons to consider this...

1) Stack a 15x, 20x, etc coupon on top of price
2) Redeem points tho due to the fact you can now redeem at RCSS/Loblaws/city market (west), it shouldnt be too hard to find other/better deals to redeem on

Unless you are buying a gaming console or headphones, you really should avoid electronics at sdm. Returns and exchanges are highly YMMV and generally just a pain. With headphones, they arent likely to be DoA and since quite a few places stop accepting returns on them, sdm is fine. With gaming consoles, all 3 companies are great with warranty that its generally a non issue (and DoA rates are small).

I'm willing to move in your house to help your balance out the ratio if that helps.

I have the RCA version that was on sale at black Friday at RCSS. For the price is pretty good. Most things looks great but beware yellows look strange on the tv. Movies like Minions or Simpsons look a bit off. My kids don't mind so not that big of a deal.

Here's the info on the TV I picked up so we can track this to see if there are specific batches that don't appear to have the olive green tinting

When they scanned my PC Optimum card it registered a max redemption of $340 for some reason.

Dec 17, as you confirmed your set is affected people should stay away from that batch.

Here is a sample image taken with my phone. Comparison of yellows between an uncalibrated 2012 MBP and a tweaked TC5580-UHD for comparison.

Yellows shouldn't look strange on the TV, sets with the tint issue are defective. It very well documented and has been going on for couple of years (specifically with the BOE IPS sets), apparently most think its not that big of a deal that Curtis/Haier never bothered to reach back to their supplier for a fix.
