I have 3 Samsung TVs, differing ages. Most recent all ok. The other two, both smart TVs, when I try to search a site on the web browser greeted with a blank tv or error. I’ve reset the smart hub, unplugged, etc... still nothing. I just want to watch courttv.com 😉

@Bailey: Are all websites affected, or just Court TV? If this is a streaming website then please be aware that the TV web browser does not support flash player, which may be why you're encountering an error.

Hi @Bailey  There will be an issue with streaming websites via the Web Browser as Flash Player in not supported  and there is a limitation on HTML5.   video. No smart Tv web browser has the full functionality  of a computer. See more here https://www.lifewire.com/samsung-smart-tv-web-browser    Video apps are the best option.

However if the  Web Browser is not functioning at all have you tried a factory reset and checked you have the latest firmware on Samsung Support?  

 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

On two TVs it seems to be anything live streaming. The YouTube app works, but going via the web browser doesn’t. My new Samsung tv is fine

I have tried the factory reset, still no joy. I have 3 TVs of various ages, the most recent one no problems. It says all software updated.

Yes but there can be issues with Live streaming via the Samsung Browser, different with dedicated apps.

Tried resets, etc, I just don't understand why one TV is fine and the others not, surprised a 5 year Old TV has become obsolete so quickly
