Question about Philips 26MF231D 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Software Update?? My tv flashed a message about a software update then shut off. Even after I downloaded the update from the website I still had the same problem, but now it shuts off sooner. It is mounted several inches from the wall so heat shouldn't be an issue. Any suggestions?

Re: Software Update??

Software update can not always fix the problem. You may need to replace the Small Signal Board (SSB Assy).

How do Update my Samsung smart TV?

Please post a model number for better results and help. If you have a smart TV and it is set up to you wireless internet you can get updates there if not you can go to and put in your model number under support and it will tell you if there are any firmware updates for your TV. If there is you can download the file to a flash drive from a computer and then plug it into the USB slot on your TV and then go into the menu and find the software update in your menu and select it and the TV will see if the firmware you downloaded is newer then the version already on your TV if so it will ask you if you want to download it you just say yes and wait until it is completely done then the TV will turn off then back on by itself and your done, remove the flash drive and enjoy your Samsung TV.

Needs software update how do i update this tv

Does the Tv have a USB port? If so you should be able to find the firmware on the makers website, assuming the company made a firmware update for that model. If so then download it to a flash drive, zip drive and plug it in to the TV's usb port for the update! Best of Luck!

New device not found/ usb2 power overload message on the screen, i unplugged the tv and it does not solve the problem. I have looked at manual but its not answered in troubleshooting.

I called 1-800 SAMSUNG and they had a firmware update that fixed the problem. I don't know if the update is available on their website, as I had downloaded a firmware update 2 days previous and this was a newer version that they sent me via email.

How do you update software?

Note some people seem to have said, in those search results, that the updated software was worse than the original. So you might want to read those first before you try to update.

Good Luck.

Software update does not find data on flash drive

You might try another drive. I have used this method and found no problem. I assume that you turned the tv off, inserted the USB drive and then turned the tv back on.
