Update the Software on Your Smart TV

TV software updates are released to add new apps and functions, and sometimes fix bugs or glitches. Whether you have The Frame, a QLED, or any other Samsung Smart TV, keeping your software up to date is very important. To get the most out of your TV, download the updates as soon as they become available over the Internet or by using a USB thumb drive. If you're still experiencing any problems or errors, service may be required. Our Support Center offers In-home, Walk-in, and Mail-in Service.

Do not turn off the TV until the update is complete.

Updates generally take a few minutes, if it fails to update, please Contact Us.

The TV will turn off and on automatically after completing a software update.

Video and audio settings may be reset to their default settings after a software update.
