UN55B8000 internet firmware 1016 update - random pwr cycling

by bobisms / November 29, 2009 2:16 AM PST

Dont do it (!) - causes random power cycling on my television. No way to revert back to the 1013 firmware that's on their website, I tried the usb update option but it appears to not allow "downgrades". Sad

Trying samsung support, so far meaningless feedback - I bet someone messed up big time. Hopefully they will fix it soon...

It sounds like more of a hardware issue than a firmware issue.

I would recommend having your unit serviced, particularly if you're still under warranty.

Possibly a hardware failure, odd that the problem started right after the internet firmware update two days ago.

I now have the same issue with a UN46B8000.
After Online Firmware update to 1016 the TV cycles power 1 to 4 times after turning it on.
Looks like a boot problem for me.
After reboot it runs fine all day.

The revert to older Firmware menu is grayed out.Does not work!
Is there an other way to go back to 1013 Firmware?
I tried USB and Online.

There is no info on the new Firmware.
This is not very professionaly handled by Samsung.
