I have Model No UN55MU6500F and it will no longer connect to the internet. It has connected in the past. All other devices are able to connect. My internet provider confirmed everything is working on their end. I have disconnected and re-connected but it did not help. Please advise how to fix this. Thank you.

Hey everyone, a fix has been issued. To resolve the issue and get the TV to reconnect, you will need to Cold Boot the TV. This can be done by holding the power button on the remote until the TV turns off and back on (about 5 seconds). Or you can unplug and plug the TV back in. This is the "temporary" fix, updates and fixes are set to go out sometime soon that will address this issue permanently but the issue should not occur again after the cold boot.
If you are still having an issue connecting after the Cold Boot of your TV continue with the following troubleshooting steps:
Check for a software update and install it if one's available:
Since you're unable to connect, you'll have to do it the manual way:
Reset the TV:
Navigate to Settings > Support > Self Diagnosis > Reset and enter your PIN (the default is 0000). After the reset, try connecting again.
Network requirements vary between TVs and are listed in the user manual. As an example, 2018 models NU6***, NU71**, NU72**, and NU73** only support 2.4Ghz networks. They will not even see a 5Ghz network.
If the network is not compatible with the TV, the TV will be unable to see or connect to it.
In most cases, the default settings for home networks are fine. However, if the network settings have been adjusted, confirm that they meet the requirements of the TV.
Disconnect some of your other things that are connected to Wi-Fi:
The more things you have connected to your Wi-Fi network, the weaker the signal will be. If you have 2 tablets, 3 phones, a refrigerator, and an Xbox, the signal could be very weak. Disconnect all other Wi-Fi devices from the network and then try to connect the TV.
If this does the trick when none of the previous steps worked, it means you have more devices connected than your router can handle and you should upgrade your router or connect fewer devices.
Try connecting to a different network:
This is a troubleshooting step to help determine what the issue might be. For instance, if a mobile device with hotspot functionality is available, have it create a network and try to connect the TV to the hotspot. If any other networks are available, they can be tried as well.
Note: If the TV can connect to any other network, service is not required, and the issue is with the network that you're unable to connect to. Contact your ISP if they provided the router, or the manufacturer of the router if it was bought separately.
If the issue continues, we recommend contacting your ISP or the manufacturer of your router for further assistance. If they help you determine the TV as the source of the issue, service is required.
Here are some service options:
- If your unit was recently purchased, you can check with your retailer on their return/exchange process.
- If you have an extended warranty you can reach out to them to have service processed.
- If you're within the one year warranty, you can private message one of our moderators with your full model and serial number to have service set up. http://bit.ly/33ipYnO
- If you're OUT of warranty, use the following link to locate a service center in your area:
May I have the firmware version the TV is running? Have you tried power resetting the TV by unplugging it and plugging it back up after a few minutes?
I'm having the same issue. I have a UN65MU630DF.
It is not a service provider issue or a router issue. It is clearly something within the TV or the software. Samsung please provide a fix...
My TV is currently running version 1270. It says this is the latest version and there are no new updates. I have run a Network Test and it still does not allow me to change the DNS settings.
