What Samsung TV serial number mean

Every TV coming out of the factory has a unique serial number. The buyer of a new TV doesn’t care about the serial number until the TV arrives at your home, at which point, of course, you need the serial number to register on the Samsung website. The country of manufacture and date of manufacture are listed separately on the information sheet, usually placed on the back of the TV.

But in addition to the serial number, there is information that service centers use. This is information about which factory the TV was assembled in and which manufacturer’s components are installed in the TV. For example, Samsung TVs have screens from Samsung, Sharp, BOE, and many other companies, and since 2022 QLED and LED TVs have displays from the Chinese company TCL, which bought the display factory from Samsung. The date of manufacture of your Samsung TV set is stated with details down to the month; for example, you can find out that your TV set was manufactured on 01.2023, but you will not know from the serial number on what date it was assembled, it can be either the second or the 30th of January. You can find the exact date of manufacture in the service menu, but newer TVs have changed the date of manufacture to the date of purchase.

Samsung TV serial number lookup and Samsung TV model number lookup

How to find the Samsung TV serial number: You can find information about your TV in several ways; use the one that works best for you.

Yes, I once wrote that there are four ways to find out the serial number and model number of your Samsung TV. Many sites have successfully started to rewrite the information, but there are not four but five ways to find your TV’s serial number.

  • A sticker on the back of the TV
  • TV menu
  • Purchase documents (hardly used now, if you used to get a warranty card, now it’s all moved online)
  • The box from the TV.
  • Samsung personal account, where you can register your Samsung TV if you’re not too lazy.

The serial number and model number on the back of your Samsung TV

So, the first place you can find the serial number is the information sheet attached to the back of the TV. After the TV is assembled and tested at the factory, if it is in good working order and ready for sale, several stickers are printed, one of which is affixed to the back of the TV. This sticker has information about your TV’s serial number, model number, and revision number; this sticker has all the information you need about the TV.

Serial number and model number in the Samsung TV menu

The second place that has information about your TV is the operating system of your TV. You can also find the serial number in the TV menu, but this option is unsuitable if your TV is malfunctioning. To find the serial number of your TV, follow these steps. The order of the search may vary slightly depending on the model of your TV year of manufacture.

  • 2022 TV models: Menu > Settings > All Settings > Support > About this TV
  • 2017 – 2021 TV models: Settings > Support > About this TV
  • 2016 TV models: Settings > Support > Contact Samsung
  • 2013 – 2015 TV models: Menu > Support > Contact Samsung

The serial number and model number on the Samsung TV packaging box

  • Another place to find your TV’s serial number information is the sticker on the packing box, but I think you will need more time to keep a big box for years, but that’s individual; I have packing boxes of TVs in my attic at home. It’s even handy if you suddenly need to take your TV to be repaired or you decide to sell it; it can always be packed in the original box. I also have a practice, after I’ve used electronic devices for 5-6 years, I sell the old TV and buy a new one. Here is the box in which I bought the TV, and it came in handy.

The serial number and model number of the Samsung TV in the purchase documents.

If twenty years ago, when you bought a TV, you got a warranty card for its repair. This card was filled out by the seller and had a serial number, but now in most countries, this is no longer relevant.

Samsung TV serial number check

The serial number of Samsung TVs produced between 1990 and 2023 is a 15-character (letters and numbers) code that contains information about your TV. Let’s look at the serial number of your Samsung TV as an example to see what some of the characters mean. In a nutshell, the serial number consists of information about the component suppliers, a symbol indicating the type of device, the factory code where the TV was assembled, the date of manufacture, and the serial number of the TV itself.

How to check the serial number of your Samsung TV, Check the Samsung TV warranty

Check the serial number of your Samsung TV. There is no centralized service to check the serial number of your Samsung TV. Some countries may have local services to check the serial number; for example, Canada has a serial number warranty check service; you can check the serial number here. I can explain why warranty verification is available in Canada if you read the terms and conditions. Canada is a big country; sometimes, it can be several hundred miles from the service center to your home. Therefore, it is written in the warranty that the owner must deliver the TV with a diagonal over 43 inches to the service center themselves; the service centers do not provide transportation services for TVs.

Sometimes Samsung runs promotions to check the serial number, but this is rare. This is due to the desire to fight the shipments of TVs intended for other regions. But it doesn’t matter to Samsung, and it even reduces the cost of warranty service because the warranty does not cover such TVs; the warranty is only valid in the country for which the TV is manufactured.

But, there is no need to check the serial number of the TV; it is tough to make a fake TV because now all TVs have the function of connecting to the Internet to Samsung servers, and a fake TV will not be able to do so that.

If you read the article carefully, you can check the serial number, knowing some nuances. For example, as of 2018, Samsung does not manufacture TVs in Korea. If you still have questions, you can write a comment, and I’ll answer you.

    Kindly advise me on how to verify this product. Thanks.

    • What model of TV? What country are you in?

      Go to the menu and look at the model number and serial number, they must match the label on the TV.

  4. When I checked country assembled code, K is not found which country assembled code is K if this serial number is manufactured by Samsung 06S63K4R800606H.

    • Look at the sticker on the back of the TV, it will most likely indicate the country of assembly.

    • K – factory code of the company where the TV is assembled (country of assembly)

    • Most likely, yes. The production date is October 2001. You should check the model number and serial number to see if they indicate the same time period.

    • For the American market, there are also some differences. For example:
      FXZA is a basic TV model
      BXZA – the TV is made to be sold through Walmart stores

      BXZA TV may be cheaper, it is affected by lower logistics costs. Walmart transports a shipment of TVs directly from the factory to its warehouses.

      The TVs have the same technical specifications.
