F5370 reboot loop

Post by kaese » Sun Oct 01, 2017 9:59 am

Hi,
I have a problem with my F5370, similar to the one of viewtopic.php?f=66&t=11688.
The only difference seems to be, that I am not able to turn off my tv, because it will reboot. This also happens after plugging it out.
So because it won't turn into standby, I'm not able to access the service menu for disabling watchdog or do a factory reset.
I also tried to uninstall samygo over the smart hub but the tv is rebooting constantly.
Has anyone an idea how to stop that bootloop or is an eeprom reset my last chance to get it back to work?

Thank you :)

Can't you put it into standby before it reboots? Also you can try to force power off by pressing power button for 3+ seconds. Or maybe access service menu from ON state using INFO+FACTORY.

Thank you for your quick response!
I didn't know that it is possible to access service menu from ON state. Watchdog is now disabled and the bootloop is gone :)
Thank you very much!

Glad. It's even *extended* service menu you get that way :)
