Hi @Jimmy_Pere.

 

The update may not be available over the air yet for your TV, but if you know your TV's model number you'll be able to search for its product support page and it may be available to download and install using a USB. Obimatt's post here gives some decent guidance.

Hi,

Tried your approach, got as far as downloading the update to USB, plugged it in to the tv, went to s/w update via USB, message came up saying no USB updates found......arrggh.

 

I'm using a Cruzer Blade stick, l assume this should be ok.

 

A message did pop up on the tv confirming the stick was in place and whether it contained videos or photos. Could it be that the Cruzer Blade is not the type of USB to use, or does it have to be configured before downloading the update?.................help/advice much appreciated.

This is the solution. Smarthub stopped working for ages. I wasted loads of time, was showing up to date. But manually downloaded and installed using USB and it’s all working again. Thanks

Had same issue.... as the first replier suggested, the problem resides in missing software updates.  I used the DNS name of 8866 and successfully connected to the internet....THEN, before you go try an internet app like Netflix (which will just break your internet connection you just established) , go to your Support menu option and do the Software Updates download.  Once you install these and the TV reboots, you can then retry your Network Settings connection to your WIFI router and internet, and then go successfully open one of your internet apps in your SmartHub.

Hello!

i own two Samsung Smart Tv’s both the same just different sizes.  The small one I was able to update the software and recognizes the wireless wifi however the large one 55” does not.  

Is the problem with the large tv itself or something else?

Hi @Peter_barb,   no it won't be anything to do with the Tv size per se.   Were you able to update the software via USB on the 55" inch screen?  If so and wi fi problems then I suggest you try the following advice from @AntS  on this thread Wifi Issues.   If you were unable to update Tv software can you format USB stick and download again in first instance?

 

@Elaine4444   Same advice applies, firstly ensure you have the latest update though  by checking Samsung Support and if not download latest firmware to USB and update Tv that way.
