I have a Samsung TV model un65ju7500fxza.Is there a way to do a "hard reboot".It is in an endless cycle of turning itself on, bringing up an empty screen and then turning itself off again. (over and over).It will not respond to the remote or the control panel on the back of the set.I've tried unplugging it and all the other systems that are attached to it multiple times.It is under warranty but Samsung is dragging their feet about getting it repaired or replaced, so I'm exploring other answers.
