TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Sorry to hear about your problem. I will be happy to help but need more information to give you the correct answer:
1. Are you connected with wireless or wired?
2. When you check the Network Status menu item in the Tv does it say you are connected? Is all the IP information filled in, no red X, etc.
3. Exactly what error or problem do you see on your screen?
More details please:
1. Is this the first time trying the Smart Hub feature (new installation), or was it working before and suddenly stopped working?
2. Did you get past creating a Smart Hub account? Exactly how far into it are you getting?
3. Have you tried power cycling your router and Tv (unplug them from power, count to five, plug back in)? This will force any wireless connections to re-acquire the IP information. Alot of times this will fix it.
4. Have you updated the Tv firmware. Every so often Samsung releases firmware updates that solve these kinds of problems. It is your responsibility to keep the Tv firmware up to date.Thank you
"I have changed my telephone connection to a satellite connection to get more mbites. The smart hub was working before on the previous connection but not since I changed over."
Are you using your own wireless router or is it provided by the internet service?
"I have created a Samsung account but I cannot retrieve my password."
So you can get to the account screen, but the password ***** working? What screen are you looking at? Exactly what error do you get?
I have tried to ask this several times. I don't know any other way to ask except-
Exactly what error do you get?
If it is a login/password ***** then you are connecting to the Samsung servers and the Tv is functioning properly, so you will have to wait and resolve the password ***** Samsung.
I suggest you:
Unplug the Tv from power.
Remove the WiFi adapter from the Tv.
Get an ethernet cord and plug the Tv directly into your Router.
Plug in the Tv.
Setup/verify the network settings on the Tv.
Try smart hub.
If it works then your WiFi adapter needs to be changed.
If it doesn't then try bypassing the router and plug the Tv directly into the internet modem.
You said that it stopped working when you switched from DSL to Satellite. I suspect this may be the problem.
Who exactly is your Internet Service Provider?
Did you bypass the router and plug the Tv directly into the internet modem?
Ok. I bet that is the problem. Often satellite internet providers block certain ports and restrict certain kinds of traffic to curb users from downloading massive amounts of data which clogs up their satellite. If you want to use real-time streaming services (like your Samsung smart hub feature, online gaming, etc), you may have to upgrade your satellite account (at additional cost) to a static IP account. Call Tooway to upgrade.
