Troubleshooting

  • Do not block the sensor at the front of the TV. The motion sensor as well as the brightness and color tone of the screen can be affected.

  • The performance of the sensor may vary depending on the TV installation and operating environment.

    • The screen brightness and color may be affected depending on the color of the bottom of the TV.

    • In an environment where special light sources other than standard light sources (halogen, fluorescent) are applied, the sensor may deviate in motion recognition, depending on the positions, types, and number of the light sources.

    • If the surroundings of the TV are too dark or bright, the screen brightness may be limited or the sensor may not work normally.

    • If the TV is installed too high or low, the sensor may not work normally

    • The motion sensor may sense a motion from a flashing LED, a pet dog, a car moving outside the window, or other condition to start operation.

    • More supports are available in Samsung Support.
