    I received this Samsung TV as a years of service award for my job Saturday. was excited to get it and hooked it up as a monitor for my 2012 Mini.

    Aside from being picky about which HDMI cable it would work with, it setup relatively easy. Only problem that I am noticing is that the picture will get brighter and darker every few seconds on it's own. I can't find anything in the TVs settings to stop this.

    Does anyone know what this is and how to stop it? Thanks

    On my Samsung it is in Menu>System>Eco Solution>Eco Sensor. Turn that off and it will stop adjusting screen brightness. Hope this helps.

    Unfortunately, that's already off.

    This is annoying so I put my original monitor back on. Thanks for the help.

    Sorry, what about the Energy Saver function? Is that off as well?

    Open up a new user account on macos an tell me if the tv still does it under that user account.

    Yes, that was already off as well.



    I disconnected the TV and went back to my old Samsung monitor. I don't have the patience to troubleshoot this tonight. Maybe another time. Thanks

    Change the HDMI Input to PC, fixed my issue of having to overscan.
