Customer Question
My screen says update...

My screen says update time- a tech/friend tried that this afternoon but the update sign is still on--how can I just get rid of it---the programs are coming

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

NsX-32GT1--about five years old

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

It started when it was temporarily unplugged. A tech friend tried to reset it, but I don't know what he tried--whatever the update sign is still there.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?

This happened once before when the electricity in my building went off for a few

Power on the television.On the Keypad, simultaneously press the "Fn" and "1" keys to open the "Settings" menu.On the "Settings" menu, use the arrow buttons to select "About", and then press "ENTER".At the "About" screen, use the arrow buttons to select "System updates", and then press "ENTER".Note: If the message "Your system is currently up to date." is displayed, your television already has the latest software installed.At the "System updates" screen, use the arrow buttons to select "Restart & install" and then press "ENTER".The "Updating..." screen appears and the system update starts.When the update process is complete, the television automatically restarts.WARNING!! Do not unplug the power cable before the television automatically restarts.
