TV won't turn off!

my 52" Samsung 5 series sometimes won't turn off completely. The screen is off but when I turn the light of the room off I can see that the screen is still on with a little bit of light with sound? I had to unplug and plug it back in to turn it off. What's going on?

Welcome to the forum! :hithere:

I would call Samsung. Which specific model do you have? Samsung makes a 5 series LCD & plasma line so it is ALWAYS important to give the whole model number.

hello PFCs
yups there is a large range in both LCD and plasma.but i guess this is a screen issue if it is still on after powering off.and i do not think that there is need of the model.just the plasma or LCD will help out.because this problem can occur to both.and i guess the solution to this is you should check out your screen or just wait after turning off for sometime to see if the screen shuts down or still work the same.

Did you turn off/on the screen saver mode. LCD panel has built in features to protect it. When you unplug the power does the screen go off complete with no slight glow to it?
