1 White Flash On Turning Off

When turning off your Smart TV, the 'brain' may turn off first, which turns off the LED panel. Then, the backlight turns off a moment later. You may notice a flash of white during that fraction of a second.

This is perfectly acceptable behavior, and indicates no problems with your Smart TV.
