Samsung Tv Reboots
To re-tune TV channels on an already old Samsung TV model manually, without calling the wizard, you need to take into account several extremely important nuances at once:
- Old models differ from new ones in a complex and incomprehensible interface, because of this problems arise;
- Outdated TVs are not equipped with automatic tuning;
- Old Samsung TVs are not capable of broadcasting high definition images.
Manual tuning involves changing many important basic parameters. Sometimes this scares off users, although in fact there is nothing difficult about it, you just need to adjust the frequency correctly, you definitely cannot break the TV.
How to tune your TV manually?
Follow the simple step-by-step instructions:
Open the main menu, and then go to the Antenna section.
- Choosing Manual Tuning Digital TV Channel Tuning.
- Click on Create, as a result of which a window will open with additional indicators: purity, module, transfer.
- First you need to set the following parameters 170,000 kHz, 128 QAM and 6900 KS / s.
- The TV will tune in for a certain time, searching for channels. The images will change, and TV footage will start to appear.
- After finishing, you need to click on the Save button, after which a window will appear for adjusting the frequency, module and transmission, leave the last parameters unchanged, but indicate a new frequency of 178000 kHz, start the search again.
By the same principle, you can continue to search for TV channels, constantly adding 8000 kHz to the frequency. Experiments of this kind can be carried out up to an indicator of 226,000.
In this way, the sound and picture quality can also be significantly improved by making them very clear. Go to the menu and select the Image section, and then arbitrarily adjust the clarity, brightness, contrast and other parameters.
You can also sort the channels manually. To do this, open the main menu, and then go to the Broadcast section. Check the boxes next to the desired programs. Here you can add your favorite channels to favorites or save the current arrangement.
It is the auto-tuning function that is why many experts define Samsung TV equipment as the smartest of all on the market. Each user will be able to automatically set up TV programs, arrange them alphabetically.
First you need to choose a signal source: antenna, cable, satellite. Some Smart TV models are offered to the user by the most popular providers: NTV, Telekarta, Rostelecom, Tricolor. If you want to use the services of the listed operators, then the channels will be found automatically and arranged according to the traditional order.
After the end of auto-tuning, select the programs of a certain provider. They will be arranged in accordance with the settings of the TV broadcast operator. To change the position of channels, use the Move function:
Press the Main Menu button on the remote control.
- Then select the Broadcast command, it is presented as a white satellite dish icon.
- Scroll down until we come across the command Change the channel number, activate it by selecting Enable.
- To go to the next step, return to the Home tab, and then open the Broadcasts section again, press the right and select the Change command.
- Select the channel whose location you would like to change, select it with a tick, and then click on Change number.
Automatic search can be started without a remote control. If you are using an LCD Smart TV, then you can enable auto-tuning using a keyboard, mouse, or a regular smartphone. Regular TVs can be configured via the navigation buttons located on the front of the device.
Editing and deleting
To remove unnecessary channels, add new ones or sort them by placing favorites at the top of the list, use the Edit.
How do I set up channels? To adjust TV channels, follow the simple step-by-step instructions:
Open the menu, select the section Broadcast or Live.
- Push on the remote control to the right.
- Select the Change option.
- Highlight the channels to be deleted.
- Use the arrows on the remote to move the TV channels.
As you can see, it is extremely easy to adjust the TV broadcast grid. It’s enough just to follow the previously described algorithm.
Particular attention should be paid to the fact that by moving a channel that has a name, you will simply swap it with others. For example, if you want to transfer TNT from position 20 to position 2, on which the CTC is already located, then there will be no displacement, they will simply change positions.
However, if the TV program does not have a title, then the entire grid will shift to a certain side. Sometimes the exposed location can get confused, so you have to periodically repeat this procedure over and over again.
Locking individual channels
There are many reasons why the TV does not show certain channels, in some cases the user has blocked them. What is the purpose of this? Everything is very simple and straightforward, setting a password for TV channels allows you to block it from children. To tune the channels by setting some password, follow the instructions:
Opening the main menu.
- Select the section Broadcast.
- Click on the command Lock.
- We activate it by selecting Enable.
- Select the channels that you want to block, just put a tick next to them.
By default, the system locks them with the default password 0000. However, before saving the changes made, the TV will offer to set its own password.
If at a certain moment the need for blocking disappears, then it is very easy to cancel it, for this you need to go to the Broadcast section again, select Block, and then simply disable this function by entering the set password.
Features of Samsung TVs
For example, TVs of 6 series with an LED matrix are mainly equipped with the Smart TV function. Potential buyers who have not previously used smart technology do not want to configure such devices on their own, so they pay fabulous money for the services of specialists. This is not the wisest decision, since the operating system is in Russian, therefore, in order to set up the technique, you just need to follow the step-by-step tips that pop up on the screen.
What if you lost your instructions? Manufacturers are well aware that only a small part of consumers continue to use traditional paper instructions, so they try to simplify the interface as much as possible and make it intuitive.
You will not find any overly complex or confusing commands in the menu. You just need to connect the TV to the network and turn it on using the remote control. You can tune free TV channels by connecting to the most common antenna.
Of course, devices released by Samsung have their own chips that distinguish them from other brands, but believe me, they are more related to additional functionality, so they will not be a particular problem.
How to set up your Samsung TV yourself
Many owners of television equipment from Samsung are faced with various kinds of problems in the process of self-setting the basic parameters. Especially when it comes to Smart TV models.
In fact, setting up Samsung TVs is far from the most difficult process, the main thing is to follow the instructions, and then you can achieve the desired result, while spending a minimum of free time. Of course, at first it is advisable to study the tips for setting up the TV, this is what will be discussed now.
Reset instructions for different series
The procedure for restarting Smart TV depends on the manufacturer’s series itself. Most often, the difference in each series is in the remote control, namely in the way to go to the TV menu. Next, let’s look at the instructions for each series separately.
Mq and LS series
Unlike previous series, to go to the TV menu, you need to find the button on the Home remote control and find the settings item directly on the screen.
- Select Support.
- Next, click on the self-diagnosis item and select Reset.
- In the window for entering the pin code (by default these are the numbers 0000), enter the necessary numbers and complete the process of restarting the Smart by pressing the OK button.
Cause of software failure
There can be several reasons for a software failure. The most popular are:
The above problems are only part of the causes of the software failure. If it is necessary to correct incorrect work, it is not always possible to do it yourself. If you cannot correct the situation, the simplest solution is to reset the TV settings to the original (factory) settings.
This Samsung model has a similar algorithm to the previous reviewed series. The difference is in the way you go to the TV menu. The procedure looks like this:
Navigate using the remote control in the TV menu (for this, use the Menu, Menu123 buttons).
- Find the support section and go to it.
- Next, you need to go to self-diagnosis and find the Reset item.
- You will need to enter the default code (numbers 0000) and confirm the action. If you previously changed the value of the code, you must enter a new number.
After completing the steps of the above algorithm, the TV will return to the default settings.
To enter the TV menu, you need to select Menu on the remote.
- Go to the support section.
- Find the self-diagnosis item and in it the Reset step.
- Entering the correct code and confirming the performed action will return the smart settings to the factory settings.
What will happen to the TV after a factory reset
A common problem with failures is not knowing what actions were taken in advance. An example is the activity of a child who could naklady in sections of the menu and change existing settings. In most such cases, a factory reset will be the only way to return to normal device operation.
On J-series vehicles, released in 2015, to reboot, you must:
Reboot different Samsung Smart TV series
The owners of Samsung Smart TV panels sometimes notice that the equipment does not work correctly: applications and the operating system freeze are detected, errors appear on the screen and other atypical phenomena occur. If the self-diagnosis function is not available or does not bring results, then the malfunction is not at the hardware level, and in order to solve the problem, you should restart the Samsung SMART TV. In most cases, after the procedure, all software-related glitches are completely eliminated. How to correctly reboot Samsung TV receivers of different series will be described step by step in our material.
The E series TV sets came out in 2012. To carry out a RESET (reboot), you must perform the following manipulations:
- On the remote control press the Menu key;
- Select Support, then Self-diagnosis;
- Click Reset;
- Specify a PIN code;
- Confirm the action by clicking Yes.
After the end of the procedure, the technique will be rebooted.

This will display a notification on the screen: Restore default values for all settings. To confirm the action, click OK.
Causes of spontaneous switching on and off of the TV and their elimination
No household appliances are insured against breakdowns. Sometimes the essence of the malfunction is clear, it is easy to fix it. But there are breakdowns that have several reasons, so a successful repair depends on the accuracy of the diagnosis. Problem: the TV turns on and off itself a few seconds after turning on, has several options for reasons. Let’s try to figure it out.
An overview of simple causes of spontaneous failure
- Power supply failure
- Serious problems
- Dust accumulation is to blame
- Inverter problem
Dust accumulation is to blame
Glowing dust on the board is most common. Despite the fact that dust is not a powerful electrical conductor, nevertheless, this parameter may be enough to close the contact pads on the printed circuit board. The most correct and only possible in this case would be to use a vacuum cleaner for cleaning, removing accumulated dust. It is necessary to remove the back panel, gently walk on the surface of the TV parts.
If the TV turns on and off spontaneously, this can be a more serious problem. How such a breakdown looks like, the cause of which lies in the device itself, you can see here:
It happens that the duration of the equipment depends on the frequency at which the signal is received. This means that when one channel is activated, spontaneous shutdown does not occur until it goes into standby mode. On the other channel, TV works for a short time and turns off every 2-3 minutes.
The most common reasons for the TV to turn on and off immediately can be:
Because of the above, any device suffers, including a TV. Let’s take a closer look at the reasons why it turns on and off immediately.
An overview of simple causes of spontaneous failure
This problem occurs with modern models, including TVs Samsung, LG, GVC. But sometimes more outdated models such as the Rubin TV have a similar problem, they turn on and off immediately. A TV breakdown is also considered to be turned off without user intervention for indefinite periods. There are actually many reasons that can lead to the device turning on and off immediately. However, not all of these cases are breakdowns.
Among them it is worth highlighting:
- Incorrect functional setting of the device. Many models of modern TVs are equipped with an automatic shutdown function in the absence of a reception signal and action on the TV itself with a remote control;
- Random installation of a program that sets a certain time after which the device turns off (after 30 minutes or seconds, for example).
How to fix:
- Enter the menu, check the functions for which the TV is tuned;
- Disable the shutdown time program.
When this kind of problem arises, you should understand that it may not be about the TV. Quite often there are cases in which the reason lies in power supply problems (the presence of constant power surges) or with the low quality of the outlet and its unreliability. The cause of the failure may be a loose contact of the electrical wire, then the TV turns on and off by itself. In order to determine for what reason the TV turns off after a while, a voltage indicator is needed, through which you can measure the voltage in the network.
Power supply failure
To check the operation of the power supply, which can also cause the TV to turn on and off spontaneously, you need to diagnose the standby indicator. If it reacts to switching on, but at the same time blinks, this may mean that there is a breakdown of the power supply itself or other parts. If this happened, you need to turn in the TV for repair. There are no other options.
If, when you turn on the power button of the remote control or TV, the indicator is constantly on, this means that there is a problem with the power supply of the device. If the indicator turns off when the TV is turned on, you can check if it has turned on by pressing the menu button. When a menu picture appears on the screen, it can be concluded that the malfunction lies in the incorrect connection of the antenna or other devices. If the outlet works, and the indicator does not respond to turning on, then the power supply is faulty.
Another no less common reason for self-shutdown is all sorts of problems associated with the inverter power supply circuit. A common cause of such breakdowns, when the TV turns off by itself, is the appearance of small cracks on the board.
The reasons for this phenomenon:
- Constant voltage drops;
- Strong heating;
- The action of a high level of humidity, temperature drops during long-term operation;
- Breakage of capacitors or joints of elements and areas of the printed circuit board, as a result of which the TV itself decides how to work.
The last malfunction is serious enough, it can be eliminated in a service center by a master specializing in TV repair.
How to independently determine the cause of this problem:
- Turn off the power;
- Inspect the board;
- Check the TV with a sufficient level of lighting in the room, with the utmost care, since even very small cracks can cause the device to turn on and off immediately on its own.
Reasons why Samsung phone restarts by itself
Next, we will consider the main reasons for self-rebooting, which are both hardware and software.
4. Problems with installed applications
Everyone knows that there is practically no moderation on Google Play (Android application repository). All this leads to the emergence of unstable versions of applications, which are often infected with viruses.
Some applications may simply not be compatible with your phone model or firmware version. You install such an application, launch it, it seems to work, but it starts to overload the memory of your phone, or send incorrect OS signals. As a result, an emergency restart of the phone occurs.
Therefore, if you find that your Samsung phone is restarting itself after installing some application or set of applications. Try to remove them and check the functionality of the gadget.
Samsung phones run on Android or Windows Phone (select models). However, it is with the versions for Android that they most often face reboot problems during operation.
If you find that after a recent kernel update (either automatic or manually undertaken by you), problems with self-rebooting began to appear, then you should roll back the firmware to the previous version. You can do this yourself (the network is full of instructions on how to flash a phone), or ask for help from a pro.
Previous official firmware can always be found on the Samsung website in the corresponding section http://samsung-updates.com/device/.
After the manufacturer releases the next firmware version, you can upgrade, because errors will surely be eliminated after numerous complaints from users from all over the world.
Your Samsung phone requires not only physical memory space (internal phone), but also RAM to work properly with Android or Windows Phone.
Lack of memory can lead to an abnormal termination of the gadget, followed by a reboot, in an attempt to boot normally.
Install the Smart Manager application, where you can see how much physical and virtual (RAM) memory is free. You can immediately clean / increase / free it.
Due to moisture getting under the Samsung phone
After contact with the liquid, various elements of the phone could fail, which led to a spontaneous reboot of your Samsung.
In this case, diagnostics on professional repair equipment is necessary, because the effects of moisture can manifest themselves in different ways. This is the most difficult reason for the manifestation of one or another breakdown in any gadget to diagnose.
