Troubleshooting the Test ResultsClick to Expand

The Smart Hub Connection Test is made up of 5 different parts - identifying which one is causing the connectivity issues with your TV will help understand what further troubleshooting steps are required to get your TV back online.

 

Gateway Test

If the TV fails the Gateway test, the router may be preventing the TV from connecting to the internet. Power cycle both the TV and the Wireless Router and try again.


DNS Test

If this fails, the TV is not communicating with the DNS servers. Changing the DNS server address to the Google Public DNS Server (8.8.8.8) may help resolve DNS server issues. 

Settings > General > Network > Network Status > IP Settings

 

Change DNS from Get Automatically to Manual and set as 8.8.8.8

ISP Block Test 

Contact your Internet Service provider – the TV has recognised that the ISP may be blocking the TV from connecting to the Samsung Servers.
