Samsung TV Error Code 107

As of 2019, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. is the world's second-largest technology company by revenue. It is a major manufacturer of electronic components such as lithium-ion batteries, semiconductors, image sensors, camera modules, and displays for clients such as Apple, Sony, HTC, and Nokia.

In the aspect of television, Samsung has been the world's largest manufacturer since 2006. In 2007, Samsung introduced the "Internet TV". Later on, this company developed "Smart LED TV" (now renamed to "Samsung Smart TV").

Nowadays, most families are using smart TVs and Samsung still holds the most market shares of the smart TVs. However, some people report that they have encountered the Samsung TV error code 107.

In general, the Samsung error code 107 indicates that there is an issue with the Smart TV’s Internet connection or with the OpenAPI.

OpenAPI stands for Application Programming Interface, which is a set of rules that governs how computers or applications communicate with one another. It’s an intermediary between an application and the Internet, and it processes the data transfer between both systems.

Fix 5. Update TV Firmware

Some people complain that the Samsung TV error code 107 occurs after installing firmware 1303, 1169, etc. In this case, you need to install a new version or roll back to the previous one.

If your TV is able to connect to the Internet, you can update the Samsung TV firmware through the following steps:

  1. Press the Menu or Home button on your Samsung remote.
  2. Go to Settings > Support > Software Update.
  3. Select the Update Now Then, new updates will be downloaded and installed on your Samsung Smart TV. And your Samsung Smart TV will restart after finishing the update.
  4. If necessary, you can also turn on the Auto Update This will allow your TV to get updates automatically.

However, if your TV is not able to connect to the Internet, you need to update the TV firmware via a USB drive. Here is the guide:

Step 1: Find the model number of your TV. You can find that on the back of the TV or using the following steps:

  • Press the Home button on your remote.
  • Go to Settings > Support > About This TV. You can check the TV Serial Number there.

Step 2: Go to the Samsung support & download page, and enter the TV model number to search this TV product. On the product page, under the Firmware tab, download the latest firmware file for this TV. The file should be a ZIP file. You should extract it.

Step 3: Prepare a USB drive and format it to a correct file system. In general, Samsung QLED and Samsung UHD TVs support FAT, exFAT, and NTFS file systems, while Full HD TV supports NTFS (read only), FAT32 and FAT16. To avoid incompatibility issue, I recommend you use MiniTool Partition Wizard to format the USB drive to FAT32.

Tip: Sometimes, the USB drive may be larger than 32GB and you can’t format it to FAT32 using Windows built-in utilities. However, MiniTool Partition Wizard can help you do that. It can format a USB drive up to 2TB to FAT32.

Free Download

  • Connect the USB drive to your PC. Launch MiniTool Partition Wizard and go to its main interface. Right-click the partition on the USB drive and choose Format from the context menu.
  • Set the File System to FAT32 and then click OK on the pop-up window.
  • Click the Apply button to carry out the pending operation.

choose the Format feature

Step 4: Open the extracted folder and copy all files. Paste all files to the USB drive’s root directory so that the TV can locate that.

Step 5: Insert the USB drive into the USB slot on your TV. Then, press the Home button on the remote and go to Settings > Support > Software Update. Select the Update Now option. The TV will ask you whether to search the connected USB drive for the firmware update file. Click Yes and it will find the update file. Click Yes again to start the firmware update.
