Troubleshooting guide

UPDATING SOFTWARE

Note: If your set is outside of guarantee and the installation of the software causes a different issue you may be liable for a chargeable repair service. The reason for this is because you may have an inherent fault which can cause corruption on one of the boards when installing the software. This could result in your unit locking into SAFE mode whereby it is stuck in standby. This is not a fault with the software, this would be caused by an existing faulty board that would have required a repair.
Note: For further support with software updates, contact our technical support team or refer to the ‘Product Support’ section of the website. If the TV is using the newest software available it will not attempt to update the software.
