But it means it needs to be unplugged until fixed. Letting it boot like that can stress other boards and increase the repair bill.
In the past week my Samsung UE55ES8000 (purchased 3/30/2013) tv has just started to endlessly restart itself on a loop. It will continue to do this non stop and needs to be unplugged to stop it. The remote does not work and neither does the physical power off button. If you unplug it for more than 2 hours it will turn on and work fine for about 2 minutes and the process starts again.
I have run the diagnostics hold down the return key for 5 seconds and the report does not indicate anything.
Has anyone seen this before ?
