    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? :¬)

Tv keeps shutting off

hi deborah.
not sure if this will help you out,if not go to the link at the bottom for more help.
If you don't hit a remote button for a few hours, the TV turns itself off. Check to see if there's a settings option to disable this power saving feature, or to extend the time before it automatically turns the TV off. Maybe a sleep timer setting? The sleep timer is off.

Why does my tv model 24f22b fhd switch itself on at 02.35 am each morning and how do I stop it?

If there is a timer function on your TV, it may have decided to wake you up at 02.35 am. Return to the initial set up procedure to find the timer function and disable it.

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

    1) Copy following link to identify timer and download possible manual:

    2) How to set analog timers by experimenting with features:

    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!

    I am looking for a download link for the First Alert ET321 with photocell. I have misplaced the original package instructions and cannot find this material anywhere! Your assistance would be greatly...

    Here is how it works. The push button repeats itself in following sequence (must plug in). F 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A d 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
    F: timer is off. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9: from dusk to dawn count down number of hours repeated every day. That's most useful to control outdoor lightings. A: from dusk to dawn count down number of hours which is randomly selected by this timer. Which is usually for indoor use to turn lights on and off for number of hours. The randomly selected hours is a security feature so that lights on (I believe the on time is within the range of 1 hour from dusk set by the timer) and off (it is randomly set, you can see the display blinking showing the selected countdown hours) shows no pattern to outsiders. d: just on from dusk and off at dawn. It is also used to control outside lights but just a little wasteful in my opinion. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.: meaning count down number of hours starts from the time when the button is pushed so that you can have a countdown timer at any time.

    Magnavox TV/VCR COMBO

    Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.
