My new Samsung 55 inch television makes random bing-bong noises. These chimes sound like they could be notifications. I have sound notifications turned OFF under the Notifications option on the Home page. There is no visual advisory to accompany these chimes. I do not own any other Samsung devices, I have turned off bluetooth on my Apple devices, I do not own any Alexa type devices. Samsung engineer was unable to identify the issue by remote access. Other than turning off the "Allow sound" under notification settings, I've run out of ideas! Any help would be appreciated.

@AbrisShkval: Do you have any Bluetooth devices in range of the TV? If so, please disable Bluetooth on the relevant devices to see if the issue persists. You may also wish to try heading to Settings > General > External Device Manager > Device Connection Manager > Device List, and remove any devices from here. Power the TV off at the wall for around 30 seconds following this step, then power it back on to see if this helps.

Thanks, but I have turned off Bluetooth on my devices already. There are no devices listed in Device List. Whilst I appreciate that turning off Bluetooth is a diagnostic step, I will need to switch on Bluetooth again at some point. Any other suggestions welcome.

The latest suggestion from John Lewis (where I purchased the TV) was to disable the internet connection for 24 hours and then reconnect! By this I mean disable/switch-off/delete within the NETWORK SETTINGS on the Samsung TV. I cannot remember the exact location within Network Settings but some delving around should reveal the appropriate options (perhaps in Expert Settings). I also deleted the "saved networks" for good measure. Obviously this temporarily disables all your Smart apps so you cannot use any internet connected features. Luckily, I have an Amazon Fire Stick to use. Reverse the process 24 hours later! If you also deleted the saved networks you will also need to reselect your wireless connection and input the Wi-Fi password. I was (am) very sceptical about this solution but so far, so good. Nearly two weeks without a "bing-bong"!

Update... I was right to be sceptical. The TV has been well behaved for two weeks, but all of a sudden it has decided to start chiming again. My smart TV is not so smart! Arrrgghhhh.
