Hi - I have a Samsung LW20M2 television. I recently had superfast wireless broadband installed and after some problems it worked. Now suddenly, when I am using Netflix, the TV suddenly cuts out and restarts and there is no TV signal. It happens al the time and i have to wait until it resets itself before starting the process all over again. Can you help please? James ***********
Hi there James and welcomeIs this only happening with the Netflix app? Or it happens when you are watching normal TV as well?Please let me know.

Hi Richard,i happens when watching i player/catchup tv too I think but not when watching normal TV unless I have tried to access an online service which messes the whole thing up.
Thank you Can you please remove the power to the TV (so unplug it from the power socket). Then on the actual TV, hold the power button for 60 seconds then release. Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the TV, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly. Let me know the results please

Richard. Still having problems with the TV. I think it is the set itself as I am having problems just watching digital TV channels - it just shuts off and loses reception suddenly.
Thanks, ***** ***** it It is the internal mainboard that has faulted. I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you. I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thank you
