I wanted to update my j5200 TV via USB, I have downloaded the right firmware from samsung support and I have flowed all of instruction but when I press "update now" in "software update", it doesn't show the message " do you want to search the connected USB device for update files?" as a consequence, tv just search internet to find update file and it doesn't search in USB, I was wondering if someone else has had the same problem, or any suggestion and solution.
my current firmware version: 1067
downloaded firmware version: 1112.2
problem with online update is that when i search online, it says no new update is available.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It absolutely requires firmware for/from the region it was sold, for language and lots of other reasons. Further, Samsung Support mods here in USA will not help you. Good luck finding the right firmware for your TV.
Thankyou for your time, I have already done all the thing that you mentioned and TV recognize USB very well but when I try to Update, it doesn't try to search in the USB to find firmware at all.
When I go here and enter that model, it says "please enter a valid model...":
Instead, some valid models are UN40J5200...
Don't know why Samsung mods won't help, but it seems likely to me your set is not a USA (or North America?) set, that the firmware 1112.2 is not valid for it, and therefore your TV does not see-or-accept that fw as an option for install.
yes it is not for USA, somewhere behind the TV, it is written "made by samsung in EGYPT"
does the firmware depend on location ?
the number 1112.2 isn't based on calendar or something that shows, it is newer than previous version?
