If your Samsung TV web browser is showing that it is not supported there are a few different reasons that can cause this issue like a poor internet connection, the need for an update within your Smart Hub, or that your web browser is no longer supported and another needs to be installed.
By having a Samsung Smart TV, you are afforded the advancements of technology. More specifically, you are even able to browse the internet as you would on your phone or laptop. However, when you open up the web browser and are faced with a message that it is not supported, you are left wondering what the cause is to this issue and what will fix it the quickest. For all of your web browsing issues, continue reading on.
Samsung TV Web Browser Not Supported
If you one day turn on your Samsung TV and all of the sudden your previously functioning web browser is no longer supported, you are not the first to experience this issue. You may need to try a few variations to fix this problem.
If your Samsung TV web browser is all of a sudden not supported, you can download a different streaming device like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Chromecast that offer their own browser. You can also simply plug in your PC to your TV with either an HDMI or VGA to get a mirrored picture on your screen that will allow you to use the web on your computer through the screen of your Samsung TV.
Samsung TV Browser Not Loading Pages
You may be able to get into the browser of your Samsung TV, but you will have just as much of a problem if the pages within the browser will not load. This renders the purpose of your web browser useless, but it can be resolved.
If your Samsung TV Browser is not loading pages try first to complete an electrical reset(soft reset your samsung tv) by unplugging your device directly from the power source and leaving it for two minutes before plugging back in. This can also be a problem with your internet, so be sure that it is connected and if so, reset your internet using the user manual that your provider supplied.
Samsung Smart TV Web Browser Server Not Found
A common reason for the “server not found” error on a Samsung Smart TV web browser is due to an issue with the internet connection. To fix this, try resetting your router or contacting your internet service provider to ensure that your connection is stable and strong. If the issue persists, you may need to update the firmware on your TV or reset it to its factory settings. Remember to back up any important data before resetting your TV.
There are several other reasons why a Samsung Smart TV web browser may display the “server not found” error message. Here are three possible reasons and their corresponding fixes:
- Incorrect network settings: If your Samsung TV says “Unable to connect to Samsung server” you need to reset your Network. To do this, start by tapping on Source on your remote then go to Settings (gear icon bottom left) > Enter > General > Network > Reset Network. This will restore Network settings back to factory defaults.
- Blocked website: Some websites may not be accessible on your Samsung Smart TV due to the browser’s security settings or because the website is blocked by your internet service provider. You can try adding the website as an “approved page” in the browser’s settings or contacting your internet service provider for assistance.
- Outdated web browser: If your Samsung TV web browser is not found, you will need to find the update through your TV by hitting ‘Menu’ from your remote > ‘Settings’ > ‘Support’ > ‘Software Update’ > ‘Update Now.’ If this does not resolve your issue, try conducting an electrical reset which can be found under the section “Samsung TV Browser Not Loading Pages”.
Samsung TV Browser Cursor Not Working
If your Samsung TV browser is working just fine, this is great! However, if it is working and your cursor is not, you may as well just be watching TV. The cursor is needed for interaction with the browser feature, so what do you do when it fails?
If your Samsung TV browser cursor is not working, there is likely a problem within the mouse settings of your TV, which is a quick and easy fix. Click ‘Menu’ from your remote > ‘System’ > ‘Device Manager’ > ‘Mouse Settings’ > ‘Mouse Options’ > “Add Bluetooth Mouse’ > then select the pointer speed that you would like your mouse to function at, such as ‘fast.’
Samsung TV Web Browser Not Playing Video
If you are someone who has had no problem with playing videos on your Samsung TV, yet one day (likely after an update) browse to the same website you have always gone to but cannot play a video, it is likely that the web browser is no longer supported.
If your Samsung TV web browser is not playing videos any longer, it is likely that an update just took place which caused your current browser to become incompatible with Adobe Flash Player. You will then need to download another relevant application through the application page of your Smart Hub App store, but beware if you do not see certain applications, they are also not available to you.
Samsung TV Web Browser Not Found
If you get onto your web browser from your Samsung TV but are repeatedly shown a “Server Not Found” error code, there is a chance that this problem is due to your TV not being updated with the latest software.
If your Samsung TV web browser is not found you will need to find the update through your TV by hitting ‘Menu’ from your remote > ‘Settings’ > ‘Support’ > ‘Software Update’ > ‘Update Now.’ If this does not resolve your issue, try to conduct an electrical reset which can be found under the section “Samsung TV Browser Not Loading Pages.” These solutions should help to rid your screen of pesky “Not Found” messages.
Samsung TV Browser Keeps Crashing
If you are right in the middle of a purchase, are at the apex of your favorite movie, or are right in the middle of a live debate, there are few things more frustrating than your Samsung TVs web browser continually crashing.
If your Samsung TV browser keeps crashing one of the most common causes is an outdated browser. Be sure that your browser is up to date by simply performing an overall update on your Samsung TV (see: “Samsung TV Web Browser Not Found). The web browser on a Samsung TV is an included feature of the software and therefore cannot be individually updated.
Samsung TV Web Browser Error Exe 001
It is never a good sign when an error code pops up on your TV screen. This can obviously be concerning, but what do you do when your Samsung TV web browser displays a message of “Error exe 001?”
If your Samsung TV Web Browser displays an error message of “EXE 001” it is relaying that there is an issue within your Smart Hub and you need to set your country. For TV models that are 2018 and older press ‘Fast Forward’ + 289 + ‘Rewind’ > select exact country or region. For TVs 2019 or newer press ‘Home’ > ‘Settings’ > ‘Support’ > ‘Self Diagnosis’ > ‘Reset Smart Hub’ > input 0000.
Samsung TV Internet Browser Not Enough Memory
When it comes to storage, the excess of storage is something that many phone owners, but even more so, TV owners want and need. If you have a Samsung TV, what do you do if you are on a particular website and see the message that there is not enough memory?
If your Samsung TV Internet Browser is displaying “Not enough memory” when either on a specific site or when watching a video/movie through the browser, it is because the browser has a flash player that does not support the size that the site might require. If this happens, your web browser will crash due to the low memory within it. Unfortunately, there is no way to upgrade the flash player.
Samsung TV Won’t Update Browser
If you find that either your browser will not update, you may be wondering what the issue is, as all of the other applications on your Samsung TV update effortlessly with the click of a button and a few other prompts.
If your Samsung TV won’t update the browser, this is because the browser cannot be individually updated as other applications can. The browser is a feature that comes with the software made available to you at purchase by Samsung. To update your browser, you will need to update the Smart Hub and that process can be referenced under the section “Samsung TV Browser Keeps Crashing.”
