 Outdated firmware

Some monitors have outdated versions of their firmware, with some bugs in the monitor's own API identified. Therefore, it is always recommended to use the most current version of your monitor firmware. Unfortunately, Samsung does not maintain a repository with a list of monitors and their latest firmware. We have the firmwares but actual updates of the models of monitors:

To update the firmware, it is necessary to download the zip and unzip it into a USB stick and then follow the sequence of continuous steps in this link on how to update the monitor. It is worth remembering that this is a delicate process, so we recommend that the update be done with the monitor connected to a UPS.


Monitor missing close/hour reference

Problem identified only in the QB43R monitor with Tizen 4.0, but there is a risk that occurs in other models. Sometimes, when the monitor is connected to the Internet. When this occurs, the monitor will use the reference reference as of 12/31/1969. The player to avoid this problem using the closed / internal time of the monitor when it identifies itself. Therefore, it is important that the internal closing of the monitor is configured correctly.
