Today was watching TV ... suddenly TV went off and tried to reboot.

The screen gone black and the One Connect Box remains in a rebooting loop. You can hear a click sound inside .... shortly you hear some TV Channel sound ... then the sound goes away ... screen goes black again the logo "Samsung QLED TV" shortly displayed .... and all over again .... 

This TV is only via One Connect Box connectable. Box Model: BN68-07104D-00

TV Model: GQ55Q90RGTXZG

Question: Is the One Connect Box Faulty or the TV Screen itself ?

Hi King76,

Will give you here the latest information:

- after my TV Set got broken I contacted the Samsung Support Service. The first slot available to talk to a service person was only 1 week later possible. So, after waiting for 1 week long, the Support guy called me and after describing the defect and behavior of the fault in detail, he suggested that probably a capacitor in the power module of the One Connect box probably bursted out. My TV was/is only 4 years old - of course with 2 years out of the warranty time. The Support team-member gave me a local Samsung Partner Repair Shop where I could ask for fixing/repair the TV Set. I contacted the repair shop and they asked me to give them all the serials details that could be found on the back of each device from the set along with some videos of the defect manifestation. After that, they gave me some price ranges for the repair as follows: 

- Around 300€ for the power module of the One Connect box
- Around 280€ for the Mainboard box
- Display itself like around 1000€  :))))
- The connection cable between the box and the display like around 280€   :)))) .... one cable :)))

Based on that answer, was clear that they have no clue what could be wrong with my TV Set, so I shall bring it over to them to check out. Only to check it out there costs like around 50€. Which you pay anyway even in the case that the TV can't be fixed. They also offer the service to transport (for you) the device there and back for a fairly "nice" price. 

- I brought the device to the repair shop, and one week later, the response was: the QLED panel must be replaced (which costs around 900€) .... :))))
But (even so) not sure that they can get that part if they order it.

Of course, that the device will be brought back home, as is, for more forensic evidences and maybe a possible law suit against Samsung. This is for me a clear sign of Design Fault that they were/are (in my opinion) totally aware of but do not want to admit. As long as many more users are facing this issue could be a collective law suit. 

It is just not possible to purchase a premium product (which costs around 2000€) and after 4 years without any outside interference, to break down suddenly like that. You can imagine in this 4 years I could have bought 4 TVs for 500€. 

They just sold a faulty designed TV Set (which, in my opinion, they knew is faulty) and made some nice profit out of it. Now, they probably, expect that I will buy another of their product :)))))))) 

Already searching for other manufacturers (Sony, LG, Hisense...) - Never Samsung again. They fooled me this time.

I wish you good luck with your next TV Device Manufacturer.

I’m having this same issue with my 15 months old Qn800a and can’t seem to find out what the issue is. Tv is a rebooting loop and nothing seems to solve the problem

Hi Spencer17 .... you maybe are lucky that you are still in the warranty period (if 24 months warranty). Try contacting Samsung Support so they can give you advice how to proceed further. But this proves, once more, that Samsung Quality Department is not doing the right thing. Currently, I am looking to close the membership, on this community, as I do not want to buy any products from Samsung anymore nor to hear about this company.

Having the same identical issue here. Bought it 2 year and a half ago - it was working fine until the one connect box started restarting itself and the screen went black.
