Today, I’m going to share what you can do to fix this issue in a matter of a few minutes.
So, How do I fix Samsung TV turning on and off by Itself Repeatedly?
In order to fix Samsung TV turning on and off automatically, you have to:

If you want a more specific and step-by-step guide to follow all of these methods, then stay with me for a couple of minutes as I’m going to walk you through each and every method to fix this issue.
1. Hard Reset Your Samsung TV
If your Samsung TV is turning off automatically, try performing a hard reset. Simply turn off your TV completely, unplug the TV cable from the power outlet, wait for 1-minute and then plug back the TV and turn it on.
This is also called Power Cycling which drains all the residual power from your TV. When you are done with this process, you’ll find your TV in a fresh condition with no power issues.
If your Samsung TV is restarting automatically due to any power issues, then performing a power cycle will definitely solve the issue and hopefully, you’ll no longer have to face the issue.
2. Get rid of the surge protector
If you are using your Samsung Smart TV with surge protector, get rid of that for now and directly plug your TV into the power outlet.
Sometimes the surge protector you are using may cause some issues related to the power supply and the best thing you can do right now is plug your Samsung TV directly into the power source and check If your TV stops restarting automatically.
If that works perfectly fine, then you may have to replace the surge protector as soon as possible, or else you have to keep facing this issue.
If the problem still doesn’t go away by directly plugging in the wall, then you may have to find any other to solve this restart issue.
3. Fix stuck remote Power Button
If the power button in your TV remote got stuck, your TV may restart automatically.
Clean all the dust and dirt from the remote and the problem will be gone in no time.
This might be a basic thing to do however, it is worth taking a look If you have any specks of dirt in the remote that may have caused it to stuck and your TV is restarting without any reason.
3. Check with the power source
Your Samsung Smart TV might be restarting it automatically because there might be some kind of fluctuations in the power supply from the wall outlet.
You should always make sure that you don’t have any issues with the power supply which you are using currently to plug your Samsung TV.
What you need to do right now is, plug your TV in any other power source in your home and check If the problem of restarting goes away.
If the issue of restarting your TV is gone with another outlet, then you may have to fix the issue of your previous wall outlet.
4. Inspect all the cables
If your Samsung TV is restarting without any reason, then you need to ensure that you don’t have any damaged or cracked cables connected to it.
First, you’ll need to take a look at the power cables of your Samsung TV and confirm If you firmly plugged it or not.
If you notice that you have not plugged it properly, unplug it from the wall outlet and then plug it back firmly.
Next, inspect those cables and check If it is in working condition or the wires inside those cables have got damaged.
It is not easy to inspect so I would recommend you take help from any technician and get feedback from them.
5. Update firmware
Due to any existing bugs in the firmware, your Samsung Smart TV might restart automatically, and updating it to the latest version is highly recommended to avoid this type of issue.
