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?

Samsung tv stopped reading usb drives


I've been struggling with the USB and Smart Hub problems since the Samsung firmware update in Dec 2019. Presumably there will be a 'standard' firmware update from Samsung soon-ish and hopefully it will resolve the problems; has anybody heard anything about future updates?

1)Take flash pen off

2)Delete all external devices : tablets etc

3) shut off theTv

4) unplug the Tv and wait for 60 seconds

 5) Insert theflash pen

6) Plug the Tv  power back on and turn it on

7) Select from the menu source : the flash pen name should be there and the folders !
