It appears to be impossible to do the following
- enter art mode by tapping power quickly
- using the home menu
- using smart things
all of these cause the TV to shut down
also connecting over Bluetooth does the same
and - it’s not possible to preview or use a picture for art mode in smart things
the smart things app can work as a remote and can control the tv
is this a known issue , or does it need returning ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can we flag this as not solved?
I've been sent firmware update 1318 on a USB stick, which has been installed and checked by the remote support team - and it still doesn't work.
Currys are fobbing me off saying Samsung need to repair the device. Samsung are getting Martin Dawes out to look at the TV.
What a £1700 load of rubbish.
Poor show Samsung / Currys.
I would pressure Curry's as the retailer (I did have to get quite firm with them), as long as a lot of time has not passed. Then they are responsible. If some time has passed, I would suggest using the date you raised it with them, not todays date
I will try and flag this as not solved
Unfortunately time has passed as I've been renovating a house. So the set was bought in July, but opened in November.
My frustration is this is a known issue, yet there is no solution. Why should I have to have my TV set "repaired" when it's clearly been broken from day one.
That delay is going to be the problem. If you could afford it this is what I would do
Buy a new one from Currys, test it immediately, if it works, swap the TV, take it back and ask for a refund as it does not work, do it on the same day.
You should not have to go to that crazyness. If the receipts do not record the serial number, they will not be able to reconcile what TV goes with what order.
Just bought a 43 inch frame TV. I have the same problem where my TV won't turn off in the art mode and Motion detector does not work. I have had my software updated, I have unplugged the TV for 30 seconds, I Have spent too much time on the telephone being Transferred to reps in different countries without resolution. They say I can can call an authorized Service person but will have to pay for it on my own if there's no defect in the TV.
So we have had work back now, and (more importantly) a solution!
Could those of you with the 2019 Frame TVs send a PM through to me? Please include the model code of your Frame in this message. This is so we can get a USB sent out with the relevant update.
Looking forward to your messages!
I have this problem aswell.

hope to hear from you,
I have a two month old 65-inch frame TV. It does not adjust brightness to match ambient light levels and it stays in art mode for about 2 minutes and then shuts itself off. I have already tried adjusting settings but it does nothing. HELP!!! I am about to return it.
