SAMSUNG UE46D6500 Problems with Lan

by gioice / November 7, 2012 10:22 PM PST


I'm a owner of a samsung UE46D6500,
since one week I started to have problem with ethernet connenection. TV is connected by LAN wire at my home network, but TV doesn't see more the LAN connection.
TV says "connect the cable".

but the TV had worked with the same cable and connection until 1 week ago. (the same cable, plug and network are correctly working with others devices)

Seems that the TV LAN CARD doesn't work more.. HAS anyone the same problem?

HOW to understand if the LAN CARD is Broken?
(there is a TV self test? )


PS: I've updated the TV FW but, nothing chanced.

Hi gioice,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know, if you want Samsung support, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for the Netherlands. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So while I can't help you directly, if you want Samsung help, here's the Samsung Netherlands portal for support on that product:

Hope this helps you!

Thanks for quickly reply..

You are right, I'm not american, but european, from Italy .
I supposed that this forum was world wide forum Happy
it's only for US ?

So is it better that I try to write to the support?

Hi gioice,

My pleasure. Happy While we do get questions from all over the world, it's just that I don't have any more information on non-US products than a consumer does. So if someone's looking for an official Samsung response, I'll send them to the appropriate country. Which in your case would be here:

If the cable to say my laptop works

Then you have done the usual test the IT folk do. Since this set is not in English, I've found translation to fail us as the original message may have said can't connect to gateway and the person translated to can't connect or connect cable.

Try the usual factory reset and try again.

Try a gaming bridge connection as well (some folk don't have that item but if you do this sort of work, you find you get one.)
