My5 not working properly on a Samsung TV

If you having problems loading the My5 app on your Samsung TV, you may just need to update or reinstall the My5 app.

How you do this depends on the model that you are using. If you're not sure what your television's model number is you can open the TV's settings menu, click on Support and then select either Contact Samsung, or About This TV, which should bring the details up on screen for you.


For models with an F in the fifth character of the model number:

- Open the Apps page in the Smart Hub, which should look something like this:

- On the page that this takes you to, click on Apps To Update in the top right corner

- Select My5 and this should run the update

 

For models with an H in the fifth character of the model number:

- Open the Apps page in the Smart Hub, which should look something like this:

For all other models:

- Press the Smart Hub button on your remote SmartHubIcon.JPG

- Move across to the Featured tile and press select SelectButton.JPG

- You should have the blue Apps tile highlighted, just press select again

- This should bring you to the Apps page, which should look something like this:
