Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi, I'm Nathan.Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.
Is the tv seeing any networks at all?
Can you give me the complete model number of the tv?Do you have the roku stick plugged into the side of the tv, and into power?
I need the model, please.
Thank you, ***** ***** far is the tv from your router?
Okay that should be an acceptable range, however the wifi adapters in these tvs tend to be very week, but there may also be a need for a software update, or the tv wifi adapter may actually be faulty right from the factory (a fairly common occurrence with this brand).
Can you, at least temporarily, move the tv next to the router and plug it in with an ethernet cable, so that we can see if it works there, and then do a software update on the tv? After, you can move it back and try wifi again.
Thank you for checking, it appears the specs are wrong for this model.
You can though still try moving it near the router and trying the wifi again.
If it won't connect even then, that means that the internal wifi adapter is defective, and your best recourse at that point is to take it back to the store and have them exchange it for a new one.
If you have the option to to so, I'd recommend replacing with a different model too. These insigina sets are at the very bottom of the quality spectrum and problems like this are just the beginning of what you'll face, and they typically only last a few years at best. For just a little bit more, you can buy a new set from a more reputable brand that will be much better quality and longer lasting. I can recommend some options for that if you'd like.
Best regards, ***** ***** for the news,
You're very welcome.
I recommend sticking to the name brands, which tend to be the most reliable, such as Panasonic, Samsung, LG. The “off brand” sets just aren’t worth the savings, they have high failure rates and are poorly supported if parts/repairs are ever needed. Example: http://amzn.to/2g0SbtE
If you happen to be a costco member (or know someone who is) I'd suggest buying it there. They tend to have very good pricing to begin with, but will also double the factory warranty to 2 years instead of 1, and they have a square trade extended warranty you can buy up to an extra 5 years for $50 or so which is well worth it. Wherever you buy, I'd highly recommend the square trade warranty (the "store brand" warranties aren't worth the paper they’re printed on). You can get that here, no matter where you buy the tv: http://bit.ly/1fDPJ99
