I was staying with my son at the weekend who has a Samsung

Resolved Question:

I was staying with my son at the weekend who has a Samsung 37" flatscreen tv and he said he has never been able to find an off switch! We did find a standby switch but surely there must be a switch that one can use to turn it right off if required.The surround is black plastic which is where we found the standby switch.If you require the model number I will have to contact him and get back to you, however if you can advise anyway it would be appreciated.

Hi Ray,

Thanks for the TV model info.
This TV doesn't have main power switch and when the power cord plugs in wall socket, standby power section turns On and TV stays in power Off/Standby mode until power button on TV or its remote control pushed. TV doesn't consume much power in standby mode so may that is the reason that Samsung didn't put main power switch in design.

Please switch Off/ unplug power cord from wall outlet if you want to switch Off TV for longer time/ few days etc.

I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.

Thanks Shahid very much,I think there should be an off switch as with the nest of wires behind tvs these days and difficult to reach wall outlet likelihood is people go on holiday leaving tvs on standby with possible fire risk.

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
I understand and agree, you can unplug power cord from back of TV if its difficult to reach to wall outlet.
I would recommend to use power stripe to plug power cord of TV and other video devices connected to it that usually has power switch as well.

Thanks.
