What Samsung TV serial number means

Every TV that comes off the factory production line has a unique serial number. The purchaser of a new TV is not interested in the serial number. The country of manufacture and the date of manufacture are indicated separately on the information sheet which is usually placed on the back of the TV.

But in addition to the serial number there is information which is used by the service centers. This is information about what factory the TV was assembled, what manufacturer’s components are installed in the TV. For example, Samsung TV sets have screens made by Samsung, Sharp, BOE, and many other companies. The date the TV was assembled is detailed to the month. You can find out the exact date of manufacture in the service menu of the TV.

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, in Canada there is a service to check the warranty by serial number, you can check the serial number here. Basically, I can explain why warranty verification is available in Canada if you read the warranty terms and conditions. Canada is a big country, sometimes it can be several hundred miles from the service center to where you live. That’s why it says 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 very rare. This is due to a desire to fight the shipments of TVs intended for other regions. But it really doesn’t matter to Samsung, and it even reduces the cost of warranty service, because such TVs are not covered by the warranty, the warranty is only valid in the country for which the TV is manufactured.

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

  1. ZY8F3MEF500217W PLEASE CAN U TELL ME THIS IS WHICH YEAR MODEL TV AND UPTO NOW WHAT WILL BE THE CONDITION

  2. 06S63K4R800606H this is serial number of my Samsung tv, I have tried to analyse the serial number it difficult to ascertain the real Samsung data because of this I think Samsung have to verify this product.
    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.

  3. 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.
