My Samsung TV keeps turning off and on by itself

My 2 yrs old 55 inch TV model UN55B800 XFXZA keeps turning off and on by itself! It is very frustrating! There is no light blinking on the screen!

Hi JENJENNGUYEN,

There was one thing you can try to make sure that this is not caused by a glitch in the system: With your TV powered ON, unplug your TV from the wall outlet. Wait 30 seconds. Plug your TV back in.

If your TV continues to turn off and on, then your TV will need service. In that case, here's the thread for how to setup service: http://forums.cnet.com/7723-13973_102-542437/service-issues-click-here-for-help/

I ORDERED A COVER LAMP ON LINE PUT IN THE MODEL NUMBER AND RECEIVED THE LAMP IN TWO DAYS. $35.00 YOU CAN GO ON LINE AND GET THE MANUAL FOR THE TV. NET NET YOU REMOVE A PANEL, REMOVE A SLEEVE, UNSCREW 1 SCREW AND PULL OUT THE OLD LAMP. SLIDE THE NEW LAMP IN , TIGHTEN 1 SCREW INSERT THE SLEVE AND GO. I AM WATCHING THE TV NOW. I FIGURED IT WAS WORTH THE $35 RATHER THEN A SEVICE CALL $125 PLUS PARTS.
