I've a Samsung led smart TV 40inch not sure on the model number can get it if needed. But the screen has just plused a bright white light for less than a second while off (on standby mode) only noticed as it was in the middle of the night. 

 

Has anyone else had this and more importantly is it safe? 

 

Don't think the TV is a year old yet.

I had the same problem and had technicians come to my home multiple times unable to witness the event. I sent emails, posted on major platforms my displeasure with Samsung and finally, they sent a brand new TV! There are no fixes. There are no patches.. There are no software updates. I will never purchase another Samsung product again!

Hi there. Was wondering if you had any luck with this problem with your tv? 
I also have a Samsung tv, and tonight I have witnessed  (not for the first time either) a white flash from my tv. 
I thought I had seen my tv do it before but my other half said it couldn't of been, now tonight I couldn't sleep and it happened again. 
it was almost like some one is taking a picture with the flash on. 

 

please let me know your results 

many thanks

Hi, I wanted to report we are having the same problem. Our samsung TV randomly flashes bright white for less than a second. It's just like the other customer described it, it feels like a pictures was taken. We noticed it both during the TV being on and while the TV is off. First time noticing it was in the middle of the night. We also experienced it while watching a movie that was dark and it flashed bright white and took is by surprise. Now we notice it every night while its turned off.  We have no clue why this happens.

I am having the same issue with my new 55", I just bought it last weekend. The only reason I noticed it was because my living room security camera caught it and sent me an alert. It randomly happens around 4:30, 5:30, or 6:00 am. But so far it has happened every night that I have had it. Did anybody find a fix for this issue?

Hello everyone, I noticed last night that my Qled tv while on standby, the left side of the screen seems to be lit up. I turned it off at the mains and forgot all about it until I got home from work today. Switching the power back on and turning off the lights to see if it was still occurring and it is! Left side of the screen slightly lit up when on standby. Any advice? The will have had the tv a year, end of November 2020.
