UN55D6420 Smart Hub Reset now Samsung apps not working.

by cmorris0603 / January 5, 2013 2:25 PM PST

This weekend I had to reset my smart hub due to an issues I was having with Netflix not loading. After the reset, I went back to the smart hub and pressed "A" to log back into my account. After doing so I was expecting to be able to access the Samsung apps store and re download my apps. To my surprise when I try to open the Samsung apps store, it does nothing. I the only thing I can do is open the default apps that are installed from the factory. I went to setting to try and re activate my Samsung apps account but the "Samsung apps service account is not listed. Some troubleshooting steps I have tried:

1. Setting static IP ( used Google DNS for giggles)
2. Upgraded TV firmware to latest.
3. Factory TV reset.
4. Manually entering the time on TV.

One really weird thing is that when I fire up the Samsung remote app on my Android phone and use the "smart menu" function then click Samsung on on the phone, the TV will actually pull up all my old apps(pre smart hub reset) and lets me use the apps however I still cannot get to the Samsung apps store or register my Samsung apps account. This is only temporary for when I power cycle the TV, I lose all the apps on the TV. I am getting pretty frustrated and Samsung support has hung up on me twice after I explained my issue.

Hi cmorris0603, Bob, & macasc666,

Unfortunately, we did have a Smart Hub issue over the weekend. Let me know if you're still having problems.

i have exactly the same issue, i can't use smart hub at all now, can't download apps, etc. another weird thing is on the homescreen there are hardly any apps left however iPlayer still shows up - when I click on this it loads up ITV player ? i updated my firmware the other day as i'd been having other issues with my samsung tv and their engineer told me to do this, ever since this time things have got worse.

i'm going to take the TV back to John Lewis as soon as i can, fed up with this now.

You must call these in.

I see the forum is getting too many posts about this. Usually a sign the Samsung servers are unavailable.

Wonder if this has anything to do with it...

My thought is it needs a revamp.

Maybe a mode that is serverless for the days the servers can't be reached. Right now it appears they are repeating a design we learned to avoid.

I'm sure you've heard that those that don't learn from the past get to repeat it.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
