Apps not working

My TV model number is UE46D6750WKXXU.

 

The only app on the Smart Hub that works without any issues is BBC iPlayer - no other apps will load.

On some - e.g. Amazon - I just get a black screen.

On others - e.g. ITV Hub - the app loads but when I chose a programme to watch the TV switches off.

My internet connection etc. all seem to be fine - otherwise BBC iPlayer wouldn't work.

When I try an online Software Upgrade it just says 'No software to upgrade currently'.

Any suggestions as to why only the BBC app works and how I can solve the problem with the others would be greatly appreciated.

There is a later software version 1028.0 available here. Did you try updating through the settings or by using a USB? There's a useful FAQ on how to update a TV's software through USB here if you haven't tried that yet.

As it seems to be just Amazon that is experiencing the issue now, we'd reccommend contacting the App provider for more information on this. 

 

We hope this has helped!

Hi Arfc62,

 

Thanks for posting! Which software version is your TV currently running on? Menu > Support > Contact Samsung.

 

Can you try resetting the Smart Hub? Menu > Smart Features > Reset Smart Hub.

Hi EmmaS - thanks for your response.

 

The current Software Version is T-GASDEUC-1013.7

 

I had tried a Smart Hub reset (several times) but to no avail.

Have you tried to update the individual Apps?

Hi JessL

 

Yes - I've removed the Apps and reinstalled them several times.

Again, it makes no difference.

Have you tried changing the DNS to '8.8.8.8', you can find this option in the Network Settings of the TV.

 

You'll need to select 'Get Manually' to enter these numbers, be sure to save this, restart the TV and check the Apps again.

Hi JessL

 

Yes - I've tried both '8.8.8.8' and '8.8.4.4' - alas, it made no difference.

Hi AntS

 

So, I downloaded the file - T-GASDEUC_1028.0.exe - copied it to a USB and followed the 'How do I upgrade my Samsung TV's firmware via a USB memory drive'.

 

When I chose 'By USB' I got 'Scanning for USB .... This may take more than 1 min' followed by 'No file available for upgrade. Please check and try again'.  I tried over and over in all 3 USB slots.

 

Thanks for your help / suggestions but I have to say I'm finding the whole episode very frustrating.  I simply want the apps to work in my Smart Hub - it shouldn't be difficult.  Why would one app (BBC) work but not any others?

 

It's leaving me with no confidence in Samsung products and I'm unlikely to purchase another.

Did you unzip the file after downloading it?

 

Also, it's worth disconnecting the TV from the internet and trying again if it's still not finding that update from the USB after unzipping.
