Software Upgrade

Samsung may offer upgrades for the TV's firmware in the future. These upgrades can be
performed via the TV when it is connected to the Internet, or by downloading the new firmware
from samsung.com to a USB memory device.
Current Version is the software already installed in the TV.
N
Alternative Software (Backup) shows the previous version that will be replaced.
N
Software is represented as 'Year/Month/Day_Version'. The more recent the date, the newer
N
the software version. Installing the latest version is recommended.
By USB
Insert a USB drive containing the firmware upgrade downloaded from samsung.com into the
TV. Please be careful to not disconnect the power or remove the USB drive while upgrades
are being applied. The TV will turn off and turn on automatically after completing the firmware
upgrade. Please check the firmware version after the upgrades are complete (the new version
will have a higher number than the older version). When software is upgraded, video and audio
settings you have made will return to their default (factory) settings. We recommend you write
down your settings so that you can easily reset them after the upgrade.
Alternative Software (Backup)
If there is an issue with the new firmware and it is affecting operation, you can change the
software to the previous version.
If software was changed, existing software is displayed.

You can change current software to alternative software by 'Alternative Software'.
