It’s important that you keep your Samsung SmartTV firmware and software versions up-to-date...
How do I update my Samsung device?
To update your Samsung device, follow these easy steps:
1. Turn on your Samsung Smart TV - making sure that it is connected to the internet. In some cases it is recommended that you leave the device turned on for at least 5 minutes.
2. Using your remote control, go to the TV’s options menu by clicking the “MENU” button on your remote control. Use the down arrow on the remote to go to the “Support” tab (appears next to the question mark symbol “?”), and select the “Software Update” option.
3. Select the “Online” option.
As long as your Samsung device is connected to the internet, it will connect to the Samsung servers to look for an update. If there is an update available it will begin installing automatically.
I followed these steps but my Samsung SmartTV didn’t update!
