Default Samsung TV Issues

I have kept to Samsung tv's for years now. Never had any issues. No I am having frequent issues having one pair to my wifi. Unfortunately it is the one in my living room. Google shows me there have been problems but no solutions. If I do end up going another direction, suggestions for a different manufacturer in the LED 55-60" range?

I always liked Sharp TV's for the Picture.My Son got a 55" LG about 4 yrs. ago and I have to say it has an Incredible Picture!! Son had 1 of the first Samsung HD TV's,Tuner went out of it shortly after purchase..4 Months later still not fixed! Swore I'd Never Buy another Samsung after that!

Looking at the tv, on the REAR of the lower right side there might me a toggle type switch, pushing it is like an on/off button.

Turn off the tv with the remote, unplug it and push that button (if you have it) that resets everything. I have done this with mine successfully. It has only happened a few times but when it did, this fixed it.

I know precisely what you are talking about, like a tiny joystick. I'll try that before going to bed. Thanks!

If you keep having issues with the wifi connection, consider getting a firestick or roku if that is all that is wrong with it.

had a 55" Samsung a few years ago. Worked great for about 2 months, then the volume would randomly start increasing or decreasing- like someone accidently sat on the remote or something. Then it would start changing channels or turn off/on on it's own. Their helpline walked me through resetting the TV twice. They diagnosed it as a faulty control module on the TV, but the reset should fix it.

Final straw was a few days later: 2AM, I wake to the blaring sound of a woman screaming for her life in my living room and a chainsaw at full kick.... the TV had turned itself on and a Texas Chainsaw movie was on....

TV went back to BestBuy the next morning.

I had a smaller samsung that had a problem and after I found online what the issue was, I ordered the part off amazon for about $25 and fixed it myself. It was pretty simple. May be worth looking into that.
