Hi, ever since we got a new WiFi modem, an Orbi modem, the Samsung tv (RU740D, UN65RU740DFXZA) has not been able to connect to YouTube, amazon prime video, or literally anything. It's only been able to connect to Netflix. I've tried literally EVERYTHING from checking for updates (updated to the latest version already), disconnecting the power from TV and WiFi, as well as resetting the TV but it always says "network error." After I reset the TV, I can't get passed the part where it says to accept the terms and conditions as it says that the server is under maintenance and to call someone for assistance. Help pls
I'm sorry to hear that, does this occur if you are using ethernet? Also, what is your current software version number?
If you haven't already, try to Cold Boot the TV 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:
Reset the TV: (if you have already done this skip it)
Navigate to Settings > Support > Self Diagnosis > Reset and enter your PIN (the default is 0000). After the reset, try connecting again.
Make sure your Wi-Fi network is compatible with the TV:
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.
