I have a Samsung qn75q7fn. I was using it with apple TV and suddenly now it turns on and off nonstop until I unplugged the OCB. on turning the one connect box, it keeps turns on and off automatically. Now the picture only flickers grey for few seconds and goes back to black and repeats and makes a clicking sound when automatically turning on and off. Request help.

Unplug the TV for 30 seconds.

  • Unplug the TV from the wall outlet or surge protector for 30 seconds, and then plug it back in

Try to update the software.

  • In some cases, a software update can correct the problem. There is a risk, however. If the TV turns off during the software update, it could damage the TV. Updates can take up to 30 minutes depending on network speed, so if the TV is not turning off too frequently, try updating the software.

Disable the Power On with Mobile option.

  • TVs that can connect to SmartThings can be turned on using compatible devices, sometimes automatically. However, if abnormal "power on" signals are sent through the wireless network, they will trigger this function and make the TV turn on.
  • If you do not want this function, navigate to Settings > General > Network > Expert Settings > Power On with Mobile, and turn the setting off.

This type of issue will need to be addressed by having the unit serviced. If the unit is in/out of warranty you can use the following link to find a list of service centers near you that can do the repair: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/service/location.
