My golf chip 60hu8550 is still on version 2240. I have auto update turned off. It never prompted me to update to 2250, although the update did show in the menu. Version 2260 has been available on the Samsung website for almost a week now, but only showed up on my update menu today. Tonight, while viewing shows on my DVR, the tv screen has prompted me twice to do the 2260 update. I've read here that some weren't real happy with the 2250 update, so I avoided it. Now the tv keeps bugging me to update to 2260. Does any know what improvements, and, or, unwanted "upgrades" come with version 2260? I've read some advertising came with 2250. I don't consider that an improvement for anyone except Samsung.

This can often fix 'issues' and after you 'un-plug' from power (or turn off your Surge Protection strip), Work that five-way Switch located on rear (Flush mounted lower 'stage-right' side) until the Red LED no longer Flashes. This helps remove the 'residual' electric charge in some of the components and help TV 'forget' what it was doing wrong.

This has often been reported successful and should most certainly be tried before the trouble of a 'Re-Set'.

As I wrote in my post above, I have not had to do a 'Power-Down' fix since turning off the "Samsung Instant On" (Menu>System>General) last November. Seems like turning your computer completely off once in a while, compared to putting it 'to sleep'.

FW updates are a hit and miss re Off/On. 99% turn Off. 95% don't turn back On.
Surprises the heck out of me when I get that odd turn back On!

I'm still on Golf 2221 with "Auto Update" off, 2240 is there if I "Check for Updates", but my system is completely working perfectly. Thought it was 2240 that changed the 'Smart Hub' screen.

With a New Product, many Firmware ("software") Updates are really needed to remove genuine 'Bugs', but after that has been done, Updates can add features (or capabilities, like adding SEK3500) that you may or MAY NOT want. A good rule (often quoted by Samsung Support) is never 'Update' unless You Want or Have a Need to do it. There is always risk (or unwanted changes) to be concerned with.

It's never showed a 'Nag Screen' to update, hope it doesn't.

Just got a New ChannelMaster DVR+ (and Love it!) that was a lot of work in my Router to Block its Nag Screens for updating. It came loaded w/115R (a 'secret' Firmware) and I like it and won't Flash it until I want to.

Reset's (had to do two of them, but being new), were no big deal. Reset takes DVR+ back to original Firmware and there is also a 'trick' to get it to USB Flash back to an earlier Firmware. I got the preferred 16 GB version, allowing good use for some of my Samsung UHD-Packs

No way to go back on Samsung TV's Firmware (software updates), absolutely only forward for them

I did set the 8550's IP Address to block FTP's, but don't have a specific URL to block connections to their download site like I did for the DVR+. DVR+'s Other connections (like TV Guide and Streaming are still allowed), but it does not even know an update is available now.

What is a Re-Set?
After removing your power it speeds its discharge to 'work' that little five-way switch on back-side of set until red LED quits blinking. Or just wait a lot longer to give its power back, TV's store lots of electrons after power is removed.

Reset is found in Menu>Support>'Self Help' (my TV's not on yet) and then at bottom of list you will see "Reset". This will restore your TV back to Factory Defaults, losing all settings you have selected Good news is that it will keep your WiFi log on intact.

A 'Smart Hub' reset means you will need to re-enter any Log-In for your Amazon, You-Tube, Netflix, etc. and would expect that to be the same after a complete reset.

It's a lot of work if you have had the TV for a while and adjusted everything the way you wanted it, to start that all over again. First thing I would re-set is "Auto Update" Off (default is On). My only reset was from entering Service Menu and reset is automatic when you leave, since there had been an Update I was holding back from, it immediately Updated and you would Never want to try and stop that process. It turned out fine.

There is also a "Reset" Command within Service Menu and Samsung can Remotely reset it as well, while you are on Service Telephone Support. I don't know if those resets are any different than the one in your Support menu.

Mine has always 'rebooted' after updates and never failed to come back on. Firmware Flashes have always seemed to be quite quickly done. I assume it's because the file was already downloaded and primed to go. If it had to wait for a 1.7 GB Download, that would take a while.

It used to be recommended (mid 2014) to do a reset following an update. I would only do it for suspected problems that a Cold start didn't fix. But I would leave it 'Cold' overnight first

It seems Samsung has started pushing the "nag screens" to my set even though I haven't updated the firmware in quite a while. They really want me to move to 2260. My set is working fine, and the pq is great, so I figure it's for their advantage. I only do a limited amount of streaming, but I do like using the web interface when watching sports. If it continues, I'll close the network connection. The nag screens are stupid! I've registered online, they could just send me an email.

They've got advertisers to please with "Numbers".

Hard to imagine what they would put in an email as a 'reason' to Flash with an update.

You might try setting your Router for no FTP's to TV's IP Address. That's what I did, don't know if it will help, but you wouldn't miss any 'streaming' with it.

I will report if I get any "Nag Screens".

Sorry to hear that. I've had a UN65HU8550 QS04 for 2 months now and I'm real happy with it. I guess I just don't know what I'm missing.

Hi guys. This morning I turned on my TV and got no image coming from my computer.

I Tried some HDMI ports and only 3 seems to be able to display my PC.

I can only get my pc to display on hdmi 3

I tried my ps3 and it won't work on any of the ports.

I tried my ps4 and it will work on all ports.

I also tried a bunch of HDMI cables and get the same results.

Have any of you encountered this on a un65hu8550 tv?

I contact samsung and sent in a service request and hopefully they'll be able to fix it but if for some reason they can't I'm hoping that the one connect box will give me some options.

Has there been any word on if and when the oneconnect will come out for this model?

What troubleshooting have you tried? Have you reset the TV?


The SEK-3500U has been out for several months and there is a dedicated thread for it: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-lc...ution-kit.html . I have it connected to my UN65HU8550FXZA. It has significantly improved the TV.

Yeah, I tried to do a reset and the problem persisted unfortunately.

I tried connecting all 4 of my devices to different ports and hdmi 3 seems to be the only one that will work with all of them. The ps4 will work on hdmi 1 and 3 but nothing else will work. It's odd. Every now and then I'd get a no display message saying that this resolution is not supported with my computer outputting a 4k signal but unplugging the hdmi and plugging it back in would fix it.

It's really strange.


Thanks for the info on the oneconnect. I'll be sure to really check it out.

75-inch dilemma in the Summer of 2015

I always like to buy latest tech, and I never thought that I would be buy a year old TV, but it looks like Samsung is leaving me with no choice. I want a 75 inch and I do not want a curved screen for various reasons (gimmick, overpriced, need to sit in sweet spot, etc).

Sammy did not produce the JS8500 in 75 inch size or that would probably be the no-brain choice for me. The flagship is curved and way overpriced while the lower tiered model (JU6500) looks less compelling than last year's HU8500 (especially if paired with one-connect). For one thing, I don't like the look or build quality of the bezel and stand compared to the HU8500.

My conclusion is that buying last year's HU8500 for the current price of about $3k (and possibly adding a one-connect) is the best choice at this time given my wants and preferences. Unfortunately, I have not seen the JS models in stores yet so I cannot know how noticeable the difference in picture quality with it's upgraded panel technology (Nano-crystal Color) that I would be missing.

Curious to hear other thoughts.

I saw it a while ago and the biggest difference to the casual eye was much better view angles. The older model isn't horrible but if I got a a few feed from the edge the edge closest to me would start to wash out pretty noticeably. I Have a flat screen from the same year and it has the same problem but since it isn't curved it has better viewing angles. If that sounds like it would bug you then I wouldn't get, that's a huge tv to set up and return. My 65 inch is 100lb with the base screwed in. I could barely set it up by myself.

To the naked eye the viewing angles was the only difference I could make out. The picture quality is solid on both when viewed straight on. I can't comment if the newer model has the problem of uneven light splotches when you crank the brightness up like on my model. I've never needed the brightness that high so it hasn't been a problem for me as setting the backlight brighter doesn't cause the same effect.

I did when it first came out and nothing happened. Now 3 of my hdmi ports are misbehaving and showing 'no signal' with 4k devices. I don't think they're related but who knows.

If you want >70" and flat, there's not a whole lot of Samsung options right now.

JU6500 - $3499 street. No One Connect. 60hz panel - poor motion
JU7100 - $4499 street. One Connect Mini (so only the ports are upgradable, not the internal processing of the TV)

I think you're on the right track. For fully $1500 less than the 7100, you're getting a set that, while yes it is last year's model, supports the full One Connect, thus making the set more futureproof than either of the above. I would file that in no-brainer territory.

3 weeks ago I bought a 65-inch JU6500 with free soundbar/sub for $1999. I really didn't want to spend more than that. Well, a week into things it crashed, burned, fell over, and sank into the swamp. When I went back to the store to arrange a replacement, they had subsequently put all of last year's models on very nice clearance prices (which weren't there when I originally shopped). Long story short, I picked up a 75HU8550 for $2399. They're coming and swapping it in for the 6500 on Friday.

In retrospect, now that I've had a chance to do more research, the 6500 blowing up was the best thing to happen to me. For $400 more, I get 10" more diagonal size, a better quality panel, and futureproofing. Suchadeal.

Yes, I won't be able to play the content on the Video Pack until I get the OCB, but I'm willing to wait a little bit and add that down the line. At least you're not stuck with potential obsolesence.

Yeah, you can only turn in on with ports 1, 2 and 4. Three is grayed out an says something like unavailable. When I first got the tv all hdmi ports would display a 4k signal with out the uhd color enabled. This is definitely something new.

Holy crap that worked. I unplugged the tv and all cables, took a shower and plugged everything back in and my ports are working. Crazy, I was only trying it because it couldn't hurt, I never expected it to work.

Thanks a ton. I was already missing my tv even before the repair people took it away from. I can cancle it now.

Ok, I Think I did just see one, it was a thin line across top edge, which was gone before I could pick remote up to see what it was about.

(This was also while I was watching DVR...)

Absolutely nothing like the (now blocked from happening) DVR+'s Large Pop-Up that would not go away until after you had selected Dismiss with the Remote.

Thanks for your thoughts, and congrats on such a nice deal, I'd have snapped that up and maybe even a few extras to sell to my friends .
