    I have exacly the same problem.

    I wake up in the middle of the night with my TV switched on.

    I have now started removing the plug from the back.

    The TV is only one week old but this is really annoyng me.

    I have updated the software and the problem has changed, the timers now seem to be ok, however if a timer is set and I use the sleep timer the tele comes on every hour or so. Like you it keeps waking me up, I think samsung know about the porblem but are ignoring it.

    Good luck

Hey Devaman, like you I have just upgraded the software and disabled all of the timers, but most importantly I have disabled the "update whilst on stanby" option from the SETUP menu. It now seems to behave...
One more comment, I was very dishappointed by Samsung lack of interest, they never bothered to reply to my email, which I think is extremely rude... but then, am I surprised? :¬)
Peace

My Samsung 3d TV turns itself off and on at will. Does anyone know why?


Depends on how fast this is happening. If it is the same time everyday then you may have the sleep/awake timer set on. If this is at random times my first stop for looking would be the power supply board.

Problem programming timer settings. Is it supposed to be random or continuous?


1) Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#50006



2) How to set analog timers by experimenting with features:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-set-timers.html



3) 50001 timer is not random vacation timer like the 50003.
50000 series timers by Woods have 1 year limited warranty, and they are a new design released this year. However the analog timer design has been around for many years.


4) If timer is acting randomly, then
a) timer is defective,
b) the override switch is not fully positioned at 'timer on,'
c) segments are not lifted fully in position,


5) ... other more remote causes: outlet might not test 80% rated voltage?, outlet might have reversed polarity?


5) Try timer on different outlet with different light.


6) As the timer dial rotates, the segments push small lever, and the lever moves switch that turns lights on-off. I suppose if this lever was broken or switch was broken, then timer would act more randomly.

Dish Box turns itself off every night and not back on.


C Dunn,

I can definitely provide assistance with this. Whenever our receivers do their nightly update, the receivers do enter standby mode. There is no way to disable this, but you can definitely setup an Auto Tune timer. This will cause the receiver to exit standby mode and tune to a channel.

To set this up, find a channel you want the TV to go to, and choose the time you want the receiver to turn on. Press record from the guide. Select 'Auto Tune' from the list, and select 'Daily'. This will set it up to happen every day.

If you have any other questions, just let me know!

Grundig TV turns itself on


Remove power for a day and see if the processor resets. It seems to be only due to the timer as the TV can be triggered only from the internal timer to power ON.Try and reset all the timer settings , switch power off completely and it must cancel all settings.

Tv turns on every night at 7:00 and turns off at 8:00 by itself. If we are already watching tv it defaults to a specific channel at 7:00 pm automatically.


Dear customer,                Check you tv's sleep timer and scheduler settings and disable them. thank you.

My TV turns itself off and on by itself.


You have a timer that has been accidently set by someone by the remote control.
If you have an instruction amnual for the tv, it will tell you how to turn off the tv's timer.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


First of all, you should try making sure in your menu that you do NOT have your timer set to shut off.  You'd be surprised how many people call Zenith every single day and fuss at me because their tv is 'broken' and they have a timer set.  Secondly, it sounds to me like it could be an issue with your power supply.  Does it turn itself back on randomly as well?  Do you hear any popping sounds when it turns off?  Check with your manufacturer to see what their repair warranty is.  Some have full warranties for 90 days parts and labor, and some have it parts and labor warranties for a full year.  You'd be surprised how much the customer service agents working for your tv's manufacturer actually know about the product.  Give them a call for sure to get more information! :)

Turns itself on and off


The unit has a timer function and a Sleep timer function. Have you ensured both of these are not on? If thy are off I would guess that either a button is bad and inducting a control signal to the controller or the controller itself is bad and just randomly is setting on and off times at random.
