o.k then give me a minute to check this , this tv should have usb ports for pictures , music and even movies but some usb ports are for service only , be right back but in the mean time can you tell me what is on that usb drive ?

Is it movies ,pictures etc. ?

did you see my last question ?

sorry having issues with PC
Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.

O.k then for one thing your tv should automatically switch to USB mode when you plug in either a USB memory stick or a USB hard drive , are you trying to connect the phone directly into the tv with a usb cable ??

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
using USB cable. TV pops up USB not on

Click on the link here;

You cannot use anything else than a drive or memory stick so what you would need to do is connect your phone to your pc and transfer that movie to a usb drive or memory stick and you are in business , just follow the info that you see in the link above

Ok thanks. Can I add apps to the tv?
Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.

O.k then let me check that ,usually you can but the tv has to be connected to the internet , are you connected now ?

Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.

By the look of it , what you see is what you get when you press "smart central" , nothing about adding new apps there , sorry
