Samsung C6510 LED TV - Internet @ TV not working

by rbuhagiar / May 29, 2010 6:04 PM PDT

Hi I am trying to setup the internet @ tv functions on my samsung series 6 led tv. I did the network test and it works. I can use dlna but when i press the internet button, everthing seems disabled, i cannot do anything. There is "samsung apps" which is disabled and "settings" which is disabled as well. There is another option with +Internet, but if I press it nothing happens.

Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong? Thanks

Re: have you tried to reset TV?

In reply to: Re

I have a UN55C6500 LED and I have the exact same problem:

TV wire connected to a cable modem (ISP = Comcast), all network test passed. I got all Yahoo widget, but press "Internet@TV" button on the remote control, get to the Internet@TV main screen, but everything is disabled, except the information box on the middle left. I can not get to setting or Samsung app. I chatted with Samsung tech support online, I was told to "reset" TV to factory default setting. I was afraid to loss all my settings (which took me a few days to get where I am now). Wondering if anyone here has tried "reset" TV, is there any luck?

BTW, I was also given the "reset" steps as:
To perform a Factory Reset, follow the instructions below:
1.With the TV on, press and hold [Exit] on the TV remote for a longer time for 10 seconds

2.A warning message appears on screen. Understand that all of your settings are lost upon completion of the Factory Reset

3.Press the [Left Arrow] to highlight OK, and then press [Enter].

After the Factory Reset is completed, the TV powers itself off. Upon powering the TV on for the first time after the Factory Reset, the Plug & Play screen appears just as if you had turned the TV on for the first time.

Exactly the same issue here.
by bulbulahamadnz / October 28, 2010 5:32 PM PDT

Hey mate, I have exactly the same issue here, after pressing internet tv, a screen pops up and dats it. I can't do anything after that, it seems like all the buttons are disabled or something. And I have checked my internet connectivity and all infact I upgraded the firmwire after hooking the tv through the LAN connection. I see you posted dis on May, have you managed to solve it yet? Let us know, will really appreciate it. Thanks.

... tried

I have exactly the same issue... I also reset the TV to the factory settings as explained above, but nothing has changed.
Any other suggestion?
In my opinion a new firmware update is needed.
I have the latest VALDEUC-3005.1 on UE40C6500UP. The issue presented with the previous version 3003, it's still there after upgrading (and after the reset).
Incredible indeed!

After more than one day completely broken, and after having tried everithing to solve the issue... I tried again this evening and magically it started to work again with no other intervention (only pushed the button on the remote and puff... here it is).
I do not think that the reset or the firmware update were necessary. It simply stopped working because some services were down on Samsung side.

Samsung Plasma C6500 TV - Internet@tv not working - FIX
by Crystal_Tech / January 24, 2011 9:22 PM PST

I experienced the same issue where the internet functions were all disabled except for the internet banner page that does nothing. This was after using the 'Auto' network setup that fills out all the IP adresses and having a successful network test connection.

The problem seemed to be with the DNS Server IP. I changed to manual setup, and entered the DNS Server IP address obtained from my router setup (ie. use the IP from the dns server, or whatever it is for your router - status menu - primary DNS server). You may need to google for the default username and password to access the router setup or try 'admin' and 'password' or similar. The other IP's (IP address, subnet Mask and Gateway) were all entered the same as populated previously in the original auto setup.

After this I presses internet@tv button and the icons were no longer disabled, then after a few seconds the auto setup procedure began and it was working. Various apps were automatically loaded including weather, youtube, history, news, getty images etc.

Hope this helps a few other people as there are a lot of forums on this issue, and it worked.

PS I am in Australia and using a wired LAN connection, with Series 6 Plasma model PS50C6500. And it's a great TV!

Thanks for the help, I really thought you solved this major issue that everyone has with Samsung internet@TV. I tried everything you said and no dice! My TV settings were the same as my router setting when I put it on manual so I don't know what it is or what to change? Do you think they are blocking my DNS server address (Primary DNS Server: Here is all my info

LAN IP Address:
Default Gateway:
