Default SAMSUNG UE46D5520 rebooting

Hi guys
had a few of these samsungs come in with the same fault,
plug it in and boots to samsung logo, then turns off and starts again,
now from what im lead to believe is that the nand chip has corrupt software from an update, and replacing this chip will solve the problem,
so i got a chip from ebay, that says programed with updated software,
installed it, and still the same happens,
is there any other steps that i have to take or do ?

See if you can do a factory reset, I believe you hit: info-menu-mute-power to get at the service menu, be very careful in there, you only want to do factory reset for now, to see if it will clear up the issue, probably under options-factory reset.

Another thing to try: go into regular menu/system/support/remote management-set to off.

Might not be possible but I wonder if you could do it with a flashlight or does the picture go away completely?

Inspect both end of the connector of the cable that goes between main board and power supply board to see if any part part of the connector has brown stain from over heating or not.

so that may of reset it to factory settings (first plug in screen ie choose language and tune channels etc) reading a few threads usually changing the nand solves this issue is it possible you got a bad nand replacement

dont get choose language, just samsung logo, then no channels installed, then shuts down and reboots again, i have ordered a few nand chips, from a different supplier, just in case it was a bad one that i got the first time, only time will tell, but if someone has the firmware for the 8 leg chip, i'll reflash it and see what happens, can't seem to find it anywhere,
i have the 62 meg update file from samsung site, but without the tv staying on, i can't use that from USB

UPDATE,
after having 6 different NAND chips from different sources, all resulted in the same outcome,
the tv never went any further than it did to start with, or the tv would not boot at all, so i have now given up, it looks like the only way i will ever get this tv to work , is to replace the main board with a working one, so if anybody has one hanging about, let me know please, or i'll just gumtree the thing for spares or repairs.

Head scratcher, unless your firmware is wrong or your preparation of the chip is off somehow or your programmer?
