Samsung tv stopped reading usb drives

First Poster

I have a Samsung UE55NU7023 i was playing back content just fine today and after i ejected my usb stick and insterted after 10 minutes without doing anything that would cause trouble my tv stopped loading anything from the usb port. It kep loading the usb forever when i tried to access it. I tried multiple usb sticks and it did the same thing. But when i had a single folder with a video in one usb drive the tv prompted me as always to play the video without opening the files and it played the video just fine, but when i tried to access the files after that i couldn't. What is going on? The port clearly works, what should i do?

Hi @Chrislsk.


Could you tell us the current software version of your TV? Go to Home > Setting > Support > About This TV.

Hi I’m having a similar problem.


its been fine recently until about 2-3hrs ago.  Will not read any usb flash drive.  Samsung upstairs does though.


tv in question is UE46F8000ST running software version 1135, latest version according to the software update function in settings>support.


USB port powers flash drives with voltage as flash drives light up.

Hello dear

My samasung ju7000 has recently stopped loading USB contents , before was ok but now seems to have some issues. 

I have done anythin, my TV already had the latest firmware (1530) . I have done what I could think of , factory reset, hub reset, changing region , changing language, I changed anything on TV , even tried to degrade the firmware but was not able to. 


Can't understand what could be the cause

Something when I turned the tv on I can see the contents of USB and even play videos but when I try to browse folders it hangs and the next time I try to see the contents It keeps loading ...

I was planning to play with the hidden options of tv but I am bit scared that could brick the tv ...

Any help could be life savings!!!
