I spent an hour with 2 different Samsung techs trying to get this problem fixed and they both said it has to do with my cable box. My cable company says it doesn't! Very frustrating.

da

Why would the cable company or cable box be responsible? These are shortcuts specifically created by Samsung, so why hasn’t Samsung provided any explanation of how users can turn these Samsung shortcuts on and off? The fact that Samsung’s own techs don’t know how to turn them off speaks volumes. This is a flaw created by Samsung, so Samsung has a duty to fix it, IMHO.

It made no sense to me, that it would have anything at all to do with my cable company. It's a setting ON THE TV! But Samsung swore to me that something about my type of cable service made it impossible to turn this 'feature' off. That doesn't seem possible. I agree that it's a Samsung flaw and they just don't want to admit it. I've been able to ignore it, though. For me it only came up when I wanted to turn on captions. I've since discovered that I can do that through the Settings button on my cable remote; this turns on the captions a different way.

Samsung sucks

I plan on suing these guys for lying. A least tell the truth. I demand they (Samsung) solves this. I have the problem whether I am on Apple TV or TIVO, or Samsung. They are lying. Let s talk to their management (or consumer reports).

Hi all, if anyone still has this problem then try the way I solved it.

I have an Amazon Stick connected to my TV and it was the Amazon remote causing the problem. Change the batteries and it will no longer keep popping up.

I have a new 2017 Samsung QLED Q7C 65" and a new Xfinity X1 Voice Remote paired to the TV. If I press and hold the X1 Voice Remote Mute button for more than a second, the Accessibility Shortcuts menu will display on the screen. If I just TAP the Mute button I don't get the menu.

I don't have cable, and this accessibilty shortcut has been on since this morning. I disconnected the blu ray player altogether, and also unplugged the TV all day today. It will not go away. Please HELP!

da

I had the same problem. Did a lot of research with no luck. I bought a new remote control and everything works fine now.

da

God told me to remove the remote control batteries and blow the batteries compartment with a regular hair blower for about 2 minutes and that solved it for me. Praise Jesus...didn’t have to fuss with anyone over the phone...yay!!!

da

I used surgical spirit and gave the battery compartment a good clean, fresh batteries (just in case) and presto it works, second time I’ve had to do it. I did this after fresh batteries on their own didn’t work. I only would recommend surgical spirit so no damage done.

We’ve had this infuriating problem off and on … ever since December 2015, when we hooked up our new “smart” Samsung TV - 55” SUHD 4K Flat JS8000, Series 8.

We’ve tried everything: combing through all the menus, tutorials, e-manuals, Samsung’s websites and other potential information sources. Several times, we’ve reset the TV, the Smart Remote, the Smart Hub, the cable box, etc.

The shortcut icons seem to start appearing at random, then after fussing with all the settings for ANOTHER hour or so, the icons seem to stop, for no clear reason.

For a while, it seemed to help to turn the TV volume down past 0. But that doesn’t seem to work anymore.

Sometimes, it seems to help to turn the TV & cable both off briefly, then on again.

Samsung needs to just eliminate these stupid shortcuts … period. They’re unnecessary and horribly aggravating. At least tell us how to turn them off!

Hi there,

I just had the same issue today. I found that when I took the batteries out of my Samsung remote and used the Samsung app on my phone to control the TV, I could access all the menus, everything worked and the accessibility menu went away. The remote seems to be bad. Initially, with the remote, I could get the accessibility panel to go away when I hit the “info” button, and then cover the top of the remote to block the signal. Then I remembered the app and took out the remote batteries. If the sensor is continually flickering on the lower right front of the TV, it may be that the remote is continually sending a signal and blocking everything else. Glad that the TV itself seems ok and I can access the Smart Hub through the phone app. Hope this helps someone else.

That one solved for me:

"Press the Remote Mute button for more than a second"

I have a Samsung Curved UHD. My kids were always activating the accessibility voice by accident.

This happened to my 65 inch Samsung. It started after I sat on the Amazon Fire Stick remote. The Fire Stick after having been sat on had settings that were changed (not sure which ones exactly). So I reset the Fire Stick to default settings and the issue went away.

So I had the same problem for two days. According to Samsung customer service, you have to turn off the tv, remove the batteries from the remote and hold the power button for 20seconds and that should fix the problem. It’s a smart remote so I’m sure it will happen again.

Take the batteries out of your remote. Hold your power button down for 15 seconds. Make sure it’s 15 seconds with the batteries out. Put your batteries back in. You have now reset your remote

I reset my TV and it did correct the problem. This started shortly after I switch cable providers to Direct TV. Not sure if there is a connection or not. To reset your tv go to MENU-SUPPORT-SELF DIAGNOSIS-RESET-type 0000 for the PIN. Your TV will reset and hopefully correct the issue. If not it might be a cable box issue.

Hey all, I just started having this issue today and the thing is I am not connected to any tv provider's but only my Xbox one x. I unplugged it to see if that would stop it, but it did not. I then went on to call Samsung( whom treated me and my girl with nothing but disrespect the whole time with us on the phone) and he told me to hold the home button for 10 secs then 30 secs and then finally he says hold the power button down for 45 seconds...I felt like I was being trolled...anywho I decided to unplug my tv and wait a bit. Is anyone else having this issue still?

da

I am as well. I have tried everything. I reconnected the blu ray player and it is off, but the TV screen is blank now.

I went to extra on my remote, paged through to settings, enter, “change tv service provider” to my provider (direct tv) and it seems to have resolved the problem.

You cannot fix it. It is an internal mainboard issue and it will need to be replaced. The screen will eventually go black. Phone Samsung and complain and if you persist they will fix the problem for free. Our 55inch TV was 18months out of warranty and they repaired at no cost. With TV 's costing 2000+ dollars the life expectancy is averaged at 7 years. If Samsung won't come to the party threaten to take the matter to a government consumer affairs department. Let us know how you get on.

This message started to appear on our 2 year old Samsung screen as well as other error messages. I phoned Samsung and was told that the TV was outside warranty and there was nothing they could do. This attitude changed when I threatened to take my case to the consumer authority and Samsung repaired my TV at no cost. The average expected life of these expensive large screen TV's is 7 years and if you are persistent you should get trouble free viewing during this period. The internet is littered with stories of early failure of Samsung large screen TV's.

In reply to the firestick response: this is a Samsung TV. After purchasing a new universal remote, the TV has been working fine.

The firestick is the problem which is plugged into the 'Samsung TV' which is caused by the firestick remote. No need for a new remote, change batteries.

After reading thru all of these, I have to agree that the Amazon FireStick remote seemed to have been the problem on my end as well. I’ve had this TV since May or June 2019 with no problems or incident. My folks gave me a FireStick for Xmas bc my roommates & I only wanted WiFi. It started happening some time last week but didn’t have time to go messing with it. I just noticed that as I was getting out of bed a few moments ago, my foot must’ve rolled over the remote or I sat on it & that’s when it started back up. I don’t have a cable box or game system or ANYTHING hooked up into my 50” Samsung TV besides the FireStick & my Beats headphones charger (headphones ARE NOT currently charging). It’s the Tv in my bedroom so it isn’t as if anyone might’ve messed with it or anything of that nature. If you have a FireStick, my first action to fix this problem would to be change the batteries in your amazon remote. I personally changed the batteries in both remotes to be safe. So far, so good, as it seemed to have fixed the problem instantly. These things are not cheap & it would’ve been devastating had I been forced to replace or send off my Tv for repairs. Thanks everyone & I hope this helps & everyone figures out how to fix their specific issues with their TV.

Woke up this morning and had ‘accessibility shortcuts’ continually popping up. I had my volume muting and unmuting. I also had my red light in bottom right flickering continually. Read this whole post & tried everything.

I did call and talk to Samsung Canada & have had the problem resolved: must have been sitting on remote and put it into command overload. The fix was easy and didn’t need to reset my TV or my precious setup ( all restored finally). ALL I NEEDED TO DO WAS PRESS AND HOLD THE RETURN BUTTON AND PLAY/PAUSE BUTTON at the same time for 10 seconds. That resets your REMOTE and wipes the pairing, then repairs it to the TV.

No more flash/flickering red light, no more accessibility shortcuts or mute/unmute behaviour problems. She told me that I should re-pair every time I change my remote batteries. In-fact, stamped into the inner case of the remote, just above the batteries is a stamp that shows this, but with a ‘3 second’.

my Samsung is a 64” UN55NU8000

I think it's the remote control. Try using this virtual remote I found on google play store.

Try unplugging the tv for at least one minute. I have done this in the past for other problems and sure enough when I did it for this problem, it worked.

I have had the same problem and took the TV out and replaced it with another TVI had. However, I began doing some thinking and thought, perhaps there is malware or a virus within the smart TV. I reconfigured it back to factory settings and connected everything and it seemed to be ok an then again the popup. Thinking again, I thought-perhaps the FireTV Cube had a virus so I restored that to factory settings and so far the popup hasn’t returned. Perhaps if you have a streaming setup that could be the source of the popup?
