Same thing, came home (My SUHD 65” 8500 model was fine in the morning) went to turn and it hung at the SUHD then off & back on & off & back on. The remote would not do $hit, the manual button the same thing. I went to go out and I unplugged it, came back about 4 to 6 hours later, remote still not working, tried the manual and actually turned on. I have not turned it off since, I think I actually bought the extended warranty with it since I have had bad luck or POOR manufacturing, or engineered obsolesce to sell more TV’s. Started out as an american thing to make more money but I guess it has caught on and they make products engineered to BLOW UP.
