Error code 110 on a Samsung TV means that the unit is having trouble connecting to the internet. It may also indicate that the internet connection is unstable or randomly dropping.
You can fix this error by fixing the internet service or resetting the network. Additionally, there are some other tips you may follow (explained below) that can help you resolve the issue.
Simply follow the suggestions listed below and most likely you’ll have your TV working again in just a few minutes.
How to fix Samsung Error Code 110
Most of the time, error code 110 can be fixed simply by going to the TV’s network settings and reconnection to your local WiFi network.
If that doesn’t work, it may be something else but that is the first thing that you should do. Just navigate to the network settings of your TV and ensure that it is connected to the correct WiFi.
If that doesn’t work, you can try to:
- Reboot or reset the TV
- Reboot the router
- Disable the firewall in your router
- Change the IP settings of the network manually
- Update the firmware on the TV
Below, we’ve explained these methods in more detail.
Reboot or reset the TV
If you did reconnect the TV to your WiFi but it still doesn’t work, then you should try to reboot the unit or even perform a reset on it. It’s common for electronics to clear up errors after a restart. So, use your remote control to turn it off.
However, the recommended way is to unplug the TV from the power outlet, wait one minute and then power it back on. Pay attention to the startup screen if you see any error messages. Check if it works (and ensure it is indeed connected to your local WiFi, it may ask you to reenter the password).
Reboot the router
Another thing you should do is reboot the router to refresh your internet connection (or clear out any possible errors or signal congestion).
Locate your router then power it off by unplugging the power cord from the outlet (some routers have a power on/off button that you can use).
Wait at least 60 seconds, then power it up again. Notice the LED lights for anything out of place. Wait until the internet connection is established and then check out the TV status.
Disable the firewall in your router
In some cases, the firewall on your WiFi network may prevent the Samsung TV from connecting to the internet and instead shows error 110. Access your routers and temporarily turn off the firewall’s setting to check if there’s a difference.
If the TV starts to work properly, then you can permanently add the device to the firewall’s exception rule. These steps and settings depend on your router’s model. So, google your router and find out how the firewall settings (and exclusion of devices) are done.
Change the IP settings of the network manually
Next, you may try to manually change the IP settings of your TV and “forcefully” connect it to your WiFi.
So, when you connect to your WiFi, the TV shows up with a prompt that allows you to change the network.
You can do this manually, but you need to have some information regarding your network. This is actually not that difficult and you can gather the information by using your smartphone.
- Open your phone’s Settings and go to WiFi Settings.
- Select your local WiFi network, and then select Manage Network Settings.
- Hit Show Advanced Options and then tap IP Settings.
- Here you change your IP mode to Static which allows you to view the network details.
- Write down the IP address and DNS server number that shows up there. (For example 192.168.1.1, DNS 18.104.22.168, or whatever it shows in your case).
Using iPhone (iOS)
- Open your Settings and go to the WiFi section
- You’ll see your current WiFi connection, and press the blue “i” button next to the WiFi.
- Scroll down until you see your IP address and other information. Write the address down.
- To find your DNS server, scroll further down and hit the Configure DNS button.
- You should see the DNS server, and write it down as well.
Once you have gathered this information (IP address and DNS server), navigate to your TV’s IP settings and select Manual Configuration.
Then you can enter the Default IP address and DNS server that you wrote down in the previous steps. Hit OK to finish the process, restart the TV just in case, and then check out if the error 110 has disappeared.
Update the firmware on the TV
Sometimes the firmware on the TV is outdated which may cause additional problems such as failing to connect to the WiFi. It’s important to keep your devices updated to the latest versions (for security and performance reasons).
Check the available firmware updates on your device. We’d suggest turning on the automatic updates and letting the TV update itself every time a new firmware is available.
Error code 110 in a Samsung TV indicates that the unit is not able to connect to the internet. You have to check your internet service and ensure that the TV is connected to the correct WiFi.
Then you may try to reboot the TV, reboot the router, enter the IP address and DNS manually and even try to update the firmware.
If you tried all these methods but still had no luck, then it’s time to contact your internet provider or Samsung’s technical support line.
