For a few months BBC iPlayer has not working been working on our UE32ES5500K TV Smart Hub. If we click on the Button, it just goes to a black screen. 4OD, ITV and other services are working OK. It won't let me Uninstall the app, so I can't reinstall a new version. It says its on Version 2.02603. If I try and run it from the App Store screen, it still goes to a black screen. Any suggestions?

If other apps are working and other TV functions too then it’s unlikely to be a problem with your hardware (TV). Suggest you call Samsung if you can’t remember your PIN. They are pretty good.

BBC iplayer won't load. I've tried a suggested sequence of actions which leads to entering pin. 0000 was suggested, but that is not accepted. I don't know what my PIN is.

Hi @Ratnakara.

 

Try the following combinations:

 

1234, 4321, 1111.

 

Let us know if any work.

Hello, 

We have tried the above and it won’t allow us to put the pin 0000 in, could there be another code? 

Thankyou

Thankyou so much for your advice, those numbers didn’t work but I tried 4567 and that worked 👍🏻 Just resetting now so fingers crossed it will solve the problem.

Thankyou so much again 😃

Hi all. Like many others out there I suddenly found myself not being able to access Iplayer on my 6 year old Samsung TV. Mine was not on the list of TV’s provided on the BBC website and the problem began to occur when the BBC Insisted that I now sign in to use Iplayer. Basically after 2 weeks of mucking about with trying this and trying that I appear to have stumbled upon my own personal solution.

 

*** Navigate to the BBC News app on the smart hub and click on it. It told me to update the software and 10 seconds later Iplayer was working. ***

 

Hopefully it will not disappear again and this solution helps some of you get back to watching what you pay for.

The default PIN does not work on my smart TV - is there an alternative to 0000 ?
