Modern Samsung Smart TV is a smart device that has many useful features and tools. They are small computers that are built into your Samsung TV. They have their operating system and memory; you can install their different applications and even access the Internet through your Samsung TV. However, many functions are hidden from ordinary users. To access them, you must enter the developer’s menu, which will open many additional tools. For example, you can invert the image on your Samsung TV.
Image Inverting is an exciting feature that can help you in certain situations to work more conveniently with the information that is displayed on your Samsung TV. However, it would be best if you understood that the Samsung TV developer menu is, first of all, a list of deep settings of your TV. So it would be best if you were careful not to damage your Samsung TV accidentally. Let’s see what you need to invert images on your Samsung TV.
How to rotate the Screen on a Samsung TV
Before I explain what it takes to flip your Screen, let me remind you again that a developer menu is a hazardous tool that can cause damage to your TV if you click and turn everything on. So you only need to select options and settings that you are sure of and that you know about. This method also works with Samsung TVs with classic remotes. To do this, you will need the following:
- First, turn off your Samsung TV.
- Press the following buttons on your remote while the TV is off in this order: Info – Settings (or Menu depending on your remote’s model) – Mute – Power.
- A few seconds after switching on Samsung Smart TV, you will get access to the Factory menu.
- Here you need to select MRT Option.
- In the following menu, select HV Flip.
- After that, select the desired setting for Screen Flip and turn off the Samsung TV.
- After the next power is on, the picture will be flipped.
Note that if this option is disabled, your Screen will be in its default state. Also, you can not only reverse the image but also mirror it. Repeat these steps and disable the setting to get it back to how it was. It would be best if you also remembered that after you flip the Screen or mirror the image, the control arrows on your remote control will also be inverted depending on the orientation of the Samsung TV.
How to invert colors on a Samsung TV
Another problem that Samsung TV owners may encounter is that the colors on their TV are suddenly inverted. Or vice versa, if you are experiencing color perception problems, you will need to invert them to perceive the picture better. Either way, it helps to know how to use the color inversion tool. To do this, you will need the following:
- Turn on your Samsung Smart TV.
- Then press and hold the Mute button for a few seconds.
- You should see the Accessibility Shortcut menu. Here you can find various additional accessibility settings.
- You need to find High Contrast and make sure it is turned off. After this, the colors on your Samsung TV should return to normal.
In this case, you will not need to restart your Samsung TV or install any additional hardware or software. You have no limitations and can invert colors at any time; this tool works with third-party applications or signal sources. Any image on your Samsung TV will be displayed with inverted colors by default.
Why you might need to rotate the Screen
If they come across this article, many users can’t understand why they might need to rotate or invert the picture on their Samsung TV. Let me briefly explain in which situations this can be useful and how this tool can simplify your life.
There’s not much practical use for it. I would say that turning the screen only helps if you want to switch your TV to portrait mode. For example, if you connect your computer to it, you need to display more information in a single view. The best way to do this would be in portrait mode.
The rest of the uses for this tool are only limited by your fanaticism and personal needs. For example, if you need to position the TV upside down for some performance or decoration, this option will help you to position the picture on it. You can also use it if you use your TV as a decorative element when for example, it is built into the wall and some picture is displayed on it.
