Obviously unplug it, but is there any hope of it returning off with the remote again?

Hi Unicorn,

Replace the batteries in the Remote.
UNIX is basically a simple operating system, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.

Mine which is only 6 months old does it also, normally about a minute after i turn it off with remote and even with smart remote. Never go out now without turning off at the wall.

Hi Enrique

I have other Samsungs and tried different remotes.

Costakid, it seems better again now. I unplugged over night and it must have re-booted.

Fingers crossed.

Seems it is a common problem.

Check if there is a firmware update for it.
