How to upload a TV firmware upgrade.

I have a TV with a USB type 'B' female socket on it, labelled as 'software update terminal'. It's exactly the same connection as on the back of my printer. (Note this is NOT the USB socket type 'A' that is actually on a computer). So assuming that I could get an updated firmware file, how would I upload it to the TV ? A thumb-drive won't work, as they are USB type 'A'. I'm interested in the method - actually getting the firmware itself is a separate issue. Thanks !

    OK, Thanks for that. I thought thumb drives werre just small length USB drives with the "A" USB plug. Never occurred to me that thumb drive might mean "B" USB plug. Doh !

How long should it take to load a software upgrade on a Philips plasma tv?

The Firmware softwares upgraded to the main frame CPU chip it take about 20-25 mins.Best way it is to download the Firmware softwares to a memory stick.Than stick it into the tv USB port to upload to the tv.Because download directly from the net it is dangerous any interuption of the flow of the data's to the tv and cause a mishap to the tv main frame CPU chip,than the CPU chip is a paper weight scrap CPU silicon chip.Than the board is dead and will not take in the incomming broadcasting tv signal and produce a picture for ur tv.

Pink vertical line on my plasma

unfortunatly, that's ususally a sign that the panel is going. If the model of tv that you have allows firmware upgrades (would require a usb thumb drive), you can try updating the firmware. Go to the company website, and look for support. You might be able to download updated firmware onto the thumb drive, and plug it into the tv. when you turn the tv back on again, it will update the software on the tv.

How do i get a software upgrade for my tv

You will need a USB port or SD Card reader on the TV set in order to update the TV's Firmware. (note: some TV manufactures specify what types of memory are compatible with their TV sets i.e. magic gate, etc.)

Use the appropriate storage device for your TV set and go to:

Enter the model number in the search box. It will search for available software/firmware for your TV set. Download it and save it to your storage device.

Insert the storage device into the TV set. If the software/firmware update screen does not come up automatically, select update software/firmware from the TV's menu.

I hope this helps.

My sportrak Pro shut off while I was doing a firmware update and now does not turn on

To put a Sportrak into Software update mode that doesn't appear to turn on (Most likely due to corrupt firmware).

Hold NAV and MENU and press POWER. This should put your Sportrak into software upload mode. Once your GPS is in software upload mode you can use magup in expert mode to upgrade the firmware.
