Bad Info: 8 second STOP Button
The Samsung manual says to hold down the STOP button for 8 seconds to perform a hard (factory) reset. This button is located in the circle on top of the player . .the square icon-button. The goal here is to get the black screen for the player's setup routine. My first attempt failed; I held this button down for over a minute, but nothing happened.
My fix was to unplug the DVD player for a few seconds, then restore power AND quickly hold down the STOP button. After about a minute, the black setup screen appeared.
From this point, press the Enter button on your remote until you get to the setup screen that asks for the type of wireless connection. The two options are "Wireless" and "WPS (PBC)". Scroll right and select the latter. . that is,"WPS (PBC)".
After you press Enter on your remote to select "WPS (PBC)", you'll have 120 seconds to find and press the WPS button on your WiFi router. Hopefully, your router has this button on its rear or side. Press it. . . the router's apps should now auto-connect your DVD player to your WiFi router. Be aware you'll have to go through the sign-in routine again to get services, such as Netflix.
