You can't do anything other than turn off the TV.

Any tips on how to prevent this problem from happening again?

Thanks.
I'm no expert, but it sounds like a possible hdmi handshake issue. Try a different hdmi cable and make sure the connection is good. Also, try a different hdmi port.

I suspected as much.
I was hoping it would be something else, so that I didn't have to snake a new cable through the cabinet. :-)

Thanks for the reply.

I think I solved the problem of the TV turn on and off by itself.

I removed my WiFi module on 55ES8000 tv . The device did not close any more.

WiFi is in the lower left corner of the TV. If you remove the TV 's plastic frame. module attached to plastic frame . Whether the cable or remove the module to cancel completely .

Haven't posted in awhile. I have the ES8000 with the original EVO Kit installed in 2013. And I cannot connect to my wireless router. All my devices connect (BDP, Apple TV). When I try via Network, it says "wired" (no wire) and when I say "wireless" I get nothing, but there's pic on the screen telling me to connect the ethernet cord to the adapter that fits into the EVO Kit, there's only one input to that. I bought a Samsung thingy that goes into a USB port that the telephone rep said I needed, but that does nothing I sent it back. So my question is do I need a wired internet connection for the Evo Kit? If so should I just remove it because I got a connection before I installed it in 2013. I've just been using the peripherals until now and want to use Amazon Prime Video for some content but it's not on Apple TV and my BD player has it buy it's not listed on Amazon to register (it's a 2012).


Thanks in advance.

Samsung ES8000 65", Evo Kit installed, Yamaha AVR with Paradigm speakers, iMac, iPad, Apple TV and HTC One phone.

My wifi module crapped out and I had to replace it: WIDT20R, BN59-01148C is what I used to replace wifi. I had to take the set apart. See the post a few above about accessing the wifi module. Lots of bad wifi modules.

Hello, I wanted to post up a question, I finally decided to look up fixing the wifi connection on my Samsung UN55es8000FXZ. Unfortunately This is not the first sight I went to. Never the less I end up here, were after reading a ton of posts it appear like there are some very knowledgeable people. In short, not really knowing how to navigate in the Service Mode, besides fixing the region code I must have inadvertently selected something else. I changed the region to 'A' and that is fine then the TV downloaded the upgrade to 1059 but my screen has a horrendous pink hue and no changing of the colors helps. I know that I must have changed something in the service mode. Does anyone have a list of what the settings should be. I appreciate any help I can get. I feel like such a fool and am very angry with myself for this snafu.

In case there's any interest, the SEK-3000 is showing in stock at Sparco (quantity 15 available in Jonestown PA location).

I have no idea what wonders this will introduce.

I'm not sure this would work on the E-Series TV. The Korean version seems to only support the F and H-Series. There are Samsung listing service on other electronic wholesale suppliers websites that list the SEK-3000, as supporting the E, but I don't know if I want to spend $200 US, to find out. If any brave souls do wish to roll the dice, please let us all know the outcome.

I'm also waiting to hear about the experience of others. I do think it's great that Samsung is still making upgrades available.

Are you seeing that when viewing from an external source? It sounds like a handshake EDID issue, or at least something akin to that, coming from a color space disagreement.


Every once in a while, quite inexplicably, things actually go according to plan.
