14 Ways To FIX Samsung TV Keeps Restarting

Do you have a Samsung TV that keeps restarting? If so, you’re not alone. This is a common problem with Samsung TVs. But don’t worry, there are several ways to fix it.

To fix this issue make sure your TV is updated to the latest firmware. If it’s not, update it. You can find the latest firmware for your TV on Samsung’s website.

Also, make sure your TV is in the correct input mode. To do this, press the input button on your remote control. If you’re not sure which input mode to use, consult your TV’s user manual.

Nevertheless, if your TV keeps restarting after trying the solutions listed above, there are a few more things you can try.

Why My Samsung TV Keep Restarting?

Samsung TVs aren’t the only devices that keep restarting. There are a few other reasons why this could be happening to you:

Hardware failure

Your TV might have a faulty hardware part. If this is the case, your TV will need to be fixed or replaced.

Electrical surge

An electrical surge can cause your TV to turn off and on repeatedly (known as “flickering”). You can prevent an electrical surge by using a good surge protector. However, if your TV’s been hit with enough power surges, it might not work anymore and will need to be fixed or replaced.

Remote control problem

It’s possible that your remote control is causing the issue (this happens more often than you think). The best way to fix this is by replacing your remote control.

Power supply problem

If you’re using the right input mode and it still keeps restarting, there’s a chance that your TV’s power supply needs to be replaced. This usually requires a professional, unless you know how to replace it yourself (in which case I recommend following YouTube videos).

Aging TV

Samsung TVs are built to last, but even they have a lifespan. If your TV is reaching the end of its life, it might start restarting more often. In this case, you might need to replace your TV with a newer model.

Bad cable

If you’re using an HDMI or component cable to connect your TV to other devices, it’s possible that the cable is bad and needs to be replaced.

Software issue

It’s also possible that there’s a software issue causing your TV to keep restarting. This can usually be fixed by updating your TV’s firmware or resetting your TV to factory defaults.

These are the most common reasons why Samsung TVs keep restarting. However, if you’ve tried all of the solutions listed above and it still keeps restarting, you might have a faulty TV.

How Do You Fix The TV Keep Restarting Problem?

1. Update Software:

For this one, there’s an easy fix. All you need to do is update your TV’s software (firmware). To do this, you’ll need a computer and USB cable.

Step 1: Download the latest firmware for your TV model from Samsung’s website.

Step 2: Plugin your USB to the TV and turn it on.

Step 3: Open the folder/directory where you saved the downloaded firmware file on your computer. Then double-click it to start updating your TV’s software. Do not unplug any cables during this process! It might take anywhere from 20-60 minutes, so be patient. The screen will go black while it’s being updated, this is normal. When it finishes up, reboot your TV.

2. Check Input Mode:

If your TV keeps restarting, it might not be in the correct input mode. To check this, press the input button on your remote control. If you’re not sure which input mode to use, consult your TV’s user manual.

3. Change HDMI Cable:

If you’re using an HDMI or component cable to connect your TV to other devices, it’s possible that the cable is bad and needs to be replaced.

4. Try Factory Reset:

If none of the above solutions fix your TV, you can try resetting it to factory defaults. This usually helps if there’s some sort of software glitch on your TV. It erases all personal data and resets everything back to default, so I recommend making sure you have any important information saved first (like Wi-Fi passwords).

To do this, go into Settings > Support > Reset All Settings > Reset All Settings or Initialize. You’ll then be prompted to connect any wired remotes that are paired with the device, then press “OK” on each remote after connecting them one at a time. Make sure to transfer any settings from your old TV before doing this!

5. Remove Extra Devices:

If you have a lot of devices plugged into your TV, try unplugging some of them and see if that fixes the issue. It’s possible that too many devices are causing your TV to keep restarting.

6. Contact Samsung:

If your warranty is still valid, contact Samsung and see what they recommend you try out. If it’s a factory defect, you might be able to get it fixed for free (which is very rare).

7. Replace Remote Control:

If your remote control stops working or the buttons aren’t responsive anymore when using it, there’s a good chance that the battery needs to be replaced. To do this, read our guide on how to replace batteries in wireless TV remotes.

8. Replace Power Supply:

If you’re using the right input mode and it still keeps restarting, there’s a chance that your TV’s power supply needs to be replaced. This usually requires a professional unless you know what you’re doing.

9. Replace Mainboard:

If none of the above solutions fix your TV, it’s possible that the mainboard needs to be replaced. This is very rare and usually requires professional help unless you know what you’re doing.

10. Contact Service Company:

If it turns out that your TV really has a factory defect, contact the service company and see if they can help fix the issue for you (they charge depending on how complex the problem is). Otherwise, just look into buying a new TV as this one might be faulty.

11. Clean TV:

If your TV is dusty or dirty, it might be causing it to overheat and restart. Try cleaning it using a microfiber cloth (or a vacuum with the brush attachment).

12. Change Location of TV:

If your TV is in a warm or hot area, try moving it to a cooler place. This will help keep it from overheating and restarting.

13. Add an A/C Unit:

If your TV is in an area that’s too hot, consider adding an A/C unit to cool the area down. This will help keep your TV from restarting.

14. Get a New TV:

If all else fails, you can always just buy a new TV. This one might be faulty and not worth fixing.
