My 15 month old tv started doing this. I noticed that when someone walked in front of it it would reboot. Then the same thing if I waved my hand in front of the sensor. I noticed that the red standby light was flashing and flickering. I pulled the batteries out of the remote but it didn't change. I pulled the batteries from the remote for the samsung bluray player and it worked. No more flashing red led and no more reboots. Strange.
Removed batteries out of all excess remotes including the Samsung DVD player remote. Plus unplugged TV for 5 minutes. We will see if this works. Thanks for the suggestion.
We had the same problem on 60 inch. We started going through the settings and turned off the "anynet" and turned off the "auto shutdown" in the smart hub or systems menu. So far so good. Maybe take a trip through your settings and see if something is amiss there...
I just had the same issue today. I was on the verge of writing Samsung off completely. I bought my TV (UN75MU8000) 2 years ago and right off the bat I had issues with the SmartHub and they came and replaced the whole TV. Today I had the issue with it flickering off and on nonstop. I tried disconnecting it for long periods of time, disconnecting my router, disconnecting all HDMI connections from the SmartHub, to no avail. Then, I read something about issues with other controllers that are used to control the TV (DirectTV and Firestick in my case). I started taking the batteries out of all the remotes one at a time, and once I got to my Firestick remote, I noticed the red sensor light on the TV stopped flickering. Easy fix! Check everything!
Hi, I just recently bought the TV this past black Friday 11/29 from Best Buy and am having issues with
the TV. It turns off/on by itself intermittently. I have tried resetting the TV by unplugging the tv and I have turned off Anynet+ and turned off mobile on settings but the problem still persists. There is no specific thing I watch, the tv turns off in a few minutes. Anyone still having this issue?
@james_samsung_1 We are sorry to hear that, since you did just recently buy the TV you can go back to Best Buy and try for an exchange or if you prefer you can send us a private message with your full serial number and look into other options for you.

This is my recent experience. May or may not work for others. Believe it or not, it has something to do with the remote. It doesn't make any sense to me, but through various tests, I was able to isolate it to the remote.
Step 1: Make sure the tv is in powered off mode. Simply unplugging it when it keeps turning off and on will not work. If the TV turns on automatically after you plug it back in, then you did it incorrectly.
Step 2: Unplug the TV for 10-15 minutes.
Step 3: Remove batteries from remote
Step 4: Plug TV back in.
Step 5: Turn TV back on with controls on the TV itself.
If the TV unit is now stable, then the remote was the issue.
Like I said, doesn't make sense to me why the remote would impact the unit even if it is not directed at the remote sensor. I stress again that this is what worked in my situation. Your mileage may vary.
I haven't been brave enough yet to test if the tv will work normally with new batteries in the remote. I will conduct this test in the next couple of days and update all of you. Right now, this is my only tv and don't want to risk it until I get my new tv mounted and running.
Edited to Update: Finally had a chance to test if the remote itself was malfunctioning or if it was a low battery situation. Verdict is that the remote is malfunctioning. Inserted fresh batteries in the remote and the TV resumed its on and off cycle. Following the steps outlined above restabilized the TV.
Edit #2: After a month or two of peace, my TV suffered a relapse. Disabling Anynet+ has resolved the issue for now. There is an outside chance that using the HDMI 3 input might also trigger this death cycle.
