Re: 2017 Samsung MU8000 Turns itself on

JUMP TO SOLUTION
I just got this TV and found it on when I woke up this morning. Quite annoying to say the least. I have a DirecTV box, a PS4 and an Xbox 360 connected to it. The TV was displaying programming from DirecTV this morning.

For those that think it is a sound bar issue, I don't think that is the case. I have a Samsung sound bar but it is connected via Bluetooth.

Any one manage to find a solution yet?

Do you have Anynet+ enabled?

Was just wondering? Does any of these threads get monitored and relevant information passed on the tech departments for future updates or are the threads just there to give us a small glimmer of hope that something may actually be done??

I am having the same issue. I have a MU6105 connected to a Nvidia Shield Tv 2017 since August working great with two firmware updates since then. I had the TV with no internet access to avoid this kind of problems. One weeks ago I had to connect the tv to the internet and updated the firmware to the lastest version. Since then the TV has been waking up shortly after I tuned off the TV and the Shield and the TV remote acting erratically when I was using the Shield through HDMI-CEC. Then I realized that the only thing that changed was the TV firmware.

I tuned off Anynet+ HDMI-CEC and the turning on problem was gone but I cant use the feature that I matter the most so it is not a solution whatsoever.

I am waiting form a firmware update to solve this problem.

Sorry for my english, it is not my strong suit.

@user34mui8y3BU, if it happened after a firmware update? Could you make a factory reset and check if that helps? I'm not willing to resign on using HDMI ARC myself, but doing a total factory reset and disconnecting the TV from internet is a viable solution.

Well, that kinda failed. I did a factory reset, but the OS is still stuck at 1210, and the TV still kept turning itself on. How to reset the OS to original settings?

I can categorically say that this isn't (only) due to connected devices as this has happened a few times with our ue32m5520 in the bedroom which has nothing connected and just used for netflix etc.

My customer has a UN55MU8000 that keeps turning on in the middle of the night.  They are using a Sonos Playbar with the optical connection.
