How to Resolve App Download Issues on Your Samsung TV

For Samsung TVs experiencing issues with downloading apps, the classic advice of “Have you tried turning it on and off again?” surprisingly applies. A frequent culprit behind an app’s failure to download or function correctly traces back to the TV’s memory being at capacity, and restarting the device offers a straightforward method to refresh the main board.

However, merely pressing the power button to turn your TV off and on might not suffice. In the realm of smart TVs, this action typically initiates a rest mode, narrowly impacting background activities. A hard reset, which entirely disrupts the power supply, is advisable instead. Here’s the proper procedure for executing a hard reset on your Samsung TV:

  1. Activate your TV.

  2. Maintain the power button pressed on your remote control.

  3. Persist until the TV screen extinguishes and reignites (a process taking roughly eight seconds).

  4. Let go of the power button.

Should the remote be unavailable or if the TV doesn’t reboot via the power button hold-down method, opt for the following alternative steps:

  1. Power up your TV.

  2. Disconnect the power cable.

  3. Pause for 30 seconds.

  4. Reconnect it and activate your TV.

Post-reset, you should regain the capability to install apps on your Samsung TV once more.
