Smart TV Problems

A Smart TV is a technology that is incorporated into television sets and set-top boxes for televisions. However, they are also integrated into devices like hotel television systems, game consoles, Blu-ray players and other compatible devices. The television sets and the set-top boxes with Smart TV technology have built-in internet and computer applications with advanced connectivity and computing capability. However, every Smart TV can have its own set of functional and operational issues. Below are frequent asked questions on issues relating to Smart TV problems that have been answered by Experts.

I bought a Samsung Smart TV in the U.K. with a model number of UE32D6530WK, version 01. However, I am not able to record anything from my TV set to a USB drive. What should I do now?

In this case, you would need a USB hard disk drive that should have a minimum speed of 5400 RPM. It seems likely the TV set does the performance testing and the drive formatting on its own. The performance testing and the drive formatting are either successfully performed or they result in a failure. You could, therefore, simply plug and play after the formatting of the drive is completed. You should use the TV guide for selecting various TV shows and digital stations and record as required.

I bought a LG 42LK550 Smart TV one month back. It doesn’t lose power but keeps turning off and on. It freezes for a second, switches off and then changes to TV mode after it turns back on. You can still hear sound while it freezes and before it goes off. Many times it just clicks off without warning. I have tried to unplug the set. What should I do to fix this problem?

Based on what you have described, there could definitely be an internal failure in the circuit board. It is possible that the failure could be in the main board. However, you should not have to spend any money on its repair. It is just a month old TV set and it would still be within the manufacturer’s warranty period. In this case, it should, therefore, be eligible for an in warranty repair service. You may want to visit It is a LG’s website. You would also find a phone number there that you could use for calling LG to schedule an appointment for a repair service.

I have a Sony Smart TV with model number NSX-40GT1. I want to set up my Smart TV and change the connection from wireless to LAN line. I have already tried connecting a DVD player, cable box and the LAN cable to the TV. I want to go to the internet set up. However, it only switches on the TV, when I press the on or standby button. Is there a solution to this problem?

In order to be able to change the connection from wireless to LAN line, you would need to get to the Home menu by pressing the Home button on the remote control. Then you should go to the arrow buttons on the remote control to get to the Applications option and press the right arrow button to gain access to the Applications menu. After you have selected the Applications, you should use the right arrow button and continue to press the down button to access the Settings menu. Following that you should press the Enter button. Then you would have to select Network and press Enter. Finally, you should select Ethernet and press the Enter button again. If you would want to see the illustrations, you may visit
