Launch apps and Enjoy! I will provide you with the link which has steps on how to change the country code, please follow the link. If that doesnt work, just contact Samsung support.
They can help. Samsung Smart TV Smart HUB Fix (Apps Not Working) Hi All, This is what worked for me after all video streaming apps did not work (for US customers). Under Network ->Network Status ->IP Settings Change 'DNS Server' to either: John Bean Visualiner Update: Software Free Download. 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11 2.
In your router reserve your IP address for the TV (I was running DHCP) to (i.e.) 192.168.1.14 3. Enable your DMZ in your router settings for the TV whose IP address your just reserved. Everything updated with no streaming issues. Hope this works for you all!!
Hi, I was facing a similar issue. This problem is mainly due to location settings in the TV. I assume this problem is faced if the location is set to USA. If you are in any other location please change it to your country and it should work fine.
I followed an alternative step which i think would be helpful. Here are the steps: 1. Go to system>setup>enter your PIN. Move forward till smart Hub terms and Conditions policy page. Here Press the following sequence on your remote MUTE, Return(kind of like recycle symbol),volume up( + ), channel up( ^ ), MUTE. You get a tab with different countries.
Select any country except USA. Proceed till last step. Access smart hub and it should work. Don't know if this helps but I had same situation with my Sharp TV. TV said connected but apps would not connect.
After hours of tech trouble shooting from Sharp (Hisense actually) suport, ATT Uverse Internet support, Netflix support, Direct TV support.No one could help and a TV repair dude was on his way.until I figured out my internet hub MODEM has an internal battery that keeps its settings. No one told me that. O all the modem resetting Ive been doing wasnt truly resetting modem.
I removed the batt for a minute, put bak in, TV on.apps work now. If this even helps 1 person, Im glad. Very frustrating for me.
